READ THE ENTIRE POSTInformation:
On behalf of the Catskill Mountain SEALs, I challenge the WWN membership to participate in the most insane water war event to ever take place. Take note that this is not a "war" so much as it is an adventure. An adventure of epic proportions that you will remember for the rest of your life. There will be thrills! There will be danger! This is...The HOG.
You are part of an elite strike force on a very dangerous and top secret mission. After months of tracking a powerful terrorist organization, you have uncovered the location of their main base of operations, in the mysterious Hills Of Giants. Not much is known about the region. You will have to rely on your wits and any information you can gather from the field. Your mission is to infiltrate the enemy base and capture as much intel as possible. But be careful. There are all sorts of rumors circulating about what exactly takes place among those forlorn hills...
The HOG will be quite different from any other war ever put together. The gametype will be invasion style; WWN versus the SEALs, with the former on offense.You will be shuttled to the battlefield at nightfall, where you will spend the night camped out. The battle begins the next day at 9:00. You have twelve (12) hours to complete a series of objectives. Think capture points, but you may have to take the objective back to your base in some cases, as in CTF. Complete the final objective to receive the grand prize! Also note that you will be going into the battlefield blind. There will be no opportunities to scout, no information will be posted, and you cannot bring smart phones. You will pick up clues along the way, telling you what to do next. After the battle we will wind down by throwing a party. There will be music, food, alcohol, and all sorts of shenanigans.
This event will be very intense and challenging, so wussies need not apply. Also, we regretfully must require an age limit of 18 or older to participate. In addition to the high intensity, a huge amount of planning and setup is required for this event, so we cannot afford to have some kid screw up and ruin the fun for everyone else. We apologize for any inconvenience.Dates:
