Meet at "Parking Lot A" at 9 AM. Location will be provided by PM.
When everyone is there, we will drive to "Parking Lot B". Location will be provided by PM.
Bring only what you absolutely need - no more than 2 primaries. Bring enough water to cover at least 5-6 rounds. These rounds require special refilling rules: No refills from outside the factory and none in the middle of a round. If you run out of water during a round, you're out until the next round.
At the Factory:
Round 1: 2 Flag CTF (East vs West RIvalry!
9:30 start, 20 min time limit, team score only
1 flag in the East Warehouse, lower level
1 flag in the West Warehouse, lower level
If uneven teams, West gets the extra player as they have one more entrance to cover.
Round 2: CTF Rematch (Switch sides RIvalry!
10:00 start, 20 min time limit, team score only
Note that Ben's nephews are attached to a side and not to a team. They will defend the same sides twice for CTF, then switch and defend the other sides twice for Outpost.
Round 3: 5 Base Outpost ( RIvalry!
10:30 start, 30 min time limit, team score only
Bases marked by PVC sticks on bell reducers, each end of the stick has a different team color on it.
1 stick in the East Warehouse, upper level
1 stick in the East Warehouse, lower level
1 stick on the Central Courtyard Platform
1 stick in the West Warehouse, upper level
1 stick in the West Warehouse, lower level
The team with the most bases at the end of time wins (one team possessing every base does not end the round by itself).
Bases start out "neutral" and may be captured in any order.
To capture a base, flip the stick so your team's color is showing. There is no "assimilation" time. If you are hit while the stick is out, the base becomes neutral, respawn and leave the stick on the ground.
Infinite lives, but you can only respawn at a base your team controls. If you have no bases and are hit, you cannot respawn until a surviving teammate captures a base. If a team possesses every base and eliminates every member of the other team, they win immediately.
Round 4: Outpost Rematch (Switch sides RIvalry!
11:15 start, 30 min time limit, team score only
Round 5: Protect the VIP (RIvalry!
12:00 start, 30min/1 hour time limit, team score only
Ben's nephews are the VIPs for each team. Everyone has unlimited lives except the VIPs, who have 1 life. If your VIP gets shot, you lose immediately. If neither VIP has been eliminated in an hour, it becomes sudden death for everyone.
If VIP ends quickly:
