Ninjas are going German this year with Gorilla company. We have always played Allied so we are switching it up this year.

Nonoblitsus I can probably get you a sweet camp spot with the 1st ID right by the Allied incert point. I know the guy that organizes it. Shoot me a message I can put you in contact with him.

I was once told “ION is the scenario game of people that you don’t want to play scenario with.”

And I’ve never considered going since.



Honestly, that many players just feels overwhelming.

Well ,It’s a great time and my son and I love it. I am not sure about the quote saying not the people you want to play with because that would be my son and I. So whoever made that statement can shove it. Maybe give it a try dude because it’s a blast

No joke......the last ion defines this very sentiment. Four things occured that made me stop going.

- got hit with reball during the beach battle while in the woods/German side.

- walking around for two hours on some dumb mission only to find out the guy leading the mission was an idiot and lead us basically off property into a swamp.

- hearing a huge boom and wondering what it was only to realize some morons home brew air cannon exploded and parts of it flew past my head and I only noticed it when my go pro footage was slowed down.

- getting into a mid field argument with a player with an obviously intoxicated player that wouldn't leave after I put half a hopper into him.



Then there was that whole raid by alphabet boys because secret white supremacists rally...

I'll stick to EMR events where the biggest threat is being overly veered by friendly dudes.

Ok , well I don’t get why people need to jump on threads and knock them. If you are not interested then keep it to yourself or start another thread about complaints. If I enjoy it and suggest it as something fun then why be negative??? I don’t get it man. Anyways it is fun and it’s hectic and lots of shooting but so what. It’s a big game and who cares they are paintballs not bullets

My intent wasn't to bash ION. I've only ever heard one thing about it and figured a thread about the very game was the appropriate place to have a dialogue...well...about that very game.

I read you initial response and added your experience to my "pro" ION list as much as I remembered the negatives. Just figured I'd say what I had heard in hopes to hear both sides. I guess I could have started a thread about everyone's feelings on the game, but that felt redundant since an ION thread already exists.
I'll probably go another year, but I have a lot of games already planned for this year and I always sort of forget this exists until it's here.

Enjoy.
