Hey guys! First time posting on this forum.  Hopefully doing my third qualifying game this Sunday, and was wondering if there was anyone going to The Depot in Glasgow that'd be keen to team up?  

 

Cheers!

Ahoy and welcome.

 

Team up in the sense of stand in the same corner at the briefing, have some bantz, and nod as we pass each other on the way to respawn: sure (although I will friendly frag you).

 

Team up in the sense of synchronised multiglam, team frequencies, and LARPing a human centipede while breaching: not so much.

 

I'll be there on Sunday wearing solid tan, likely with a suppressed MP5K if you want to do a bit of the former.  If the latter, there are some actual teams there that will doubtless give you a shake.

 

Oh, there's a bring-and-buy on, if you want to get a head start on emptying your bank account.  Nobody is going to be asking for a UKARA number, given that you're on site actually playing airsoft. ;)

I'll likely be wearing a green jumper and awkwardly sitting in the corner 😂

 

Be good to meet you and hear that friendly frag coming near me.

 

Oh that's good, I've got a student overdraft that's just waiting to be maxed out.

Well, I'll wear a rose in my lapel an... waaaait a second, have I stumbled into the dating thread again?

 

I'm usually there with Workmate Eddy, but he said something about slinging coins rather than BBs this Sunday (I think there's an Old Firm game on).  There's often a couple of other unsociable bastards from here at the Depot, let's see who else we can roust up.

If you see a guy in tan with an mp5 holding a grenade shoot him regardless of team. He seems to think he's playing some kind of free for all? Something about 50 virgins or the likes

I might join.  Got a free game day to cash in but no friends to join me with the old firm on.

One time, I friendly fragged you, twice in a row.

 

I do wonder how many more drop-outs there'll be this Sunday once folk realise there's a footy-fight on.

doesn't beat my friendly frag 7 folk :( I do think sometimes it's a blessing I don't have the multishot base so I can't do too much damage each match. 

 

I think it's telling that they had spaces left on a Wednesday before gameday but to be fair everyone probably got their fill at the charity weekend. (some might not be allowed back 😅) Probably just the football.

Huh, both own-kit and hires are still available for Sunday, that is unusual.

 

Huh-squared: Their site has a banner at the top today saying "Please remember that all online bookings are non-refundable and non-transferrable as per our terms and conditions." 

 

True, but I think that banner is new, and I wonder if they've had a bunch of them this week.

 

Pity, as it's in everyone's best interests to allow cancellations (and reselling the slot) or transfers so that players actually show up.

 

Might be a bit more intimate than usual on Sunday then, with hopefully a bit less "GO! GO! GO!" ;)

Noticed the new banner. I was under the impression you could transfer a booking previously so it's news to me. I can see why they don't want to refund as the site is almost always fully booked so they probably want to discourage pre-booking to reserve spots and if they get a message saying someone wants a refund because they can't make it they CAN increase their quantity online and sell another ticket ;). I'm sure I've seen it be out of stock and then checked again and there are a few in stock and usually they write on FB something like "we found a few more spots". They raised the deposit price to discourage that type of behaviour / no shows.

“Non-transferable” [unless you have the mental capacity to remember someone else’s email to say at the desk]

As in for me to say or the depot to say? Every time I’ve booked I’ve used an email at sign in wether it’s my own, parents or even a mates no questions have ever been asked.

Mmm, I doubt it'll end with a session in the struggle-cuddle room, just be aware that Johno can and does learn names.

Yea he seems switched on. Just don't forget he has all your personal data from your UKARA forms 😅

For the depot to say as you can book multiple slots as an individual so it's clear you can book for others but can't transfer is a bit weird. Like I say probably just trying to stop people hogging slots. 

 

 

So back on topic We have 4 bodies this weekend? Me, Roger+Eddie and Bluo? 

 

Here's what I will be looking like

Nah, Eddie has bailed, would rather sit in front of his TV shouting encouragement at his local[*] sportsball-team players.

 

[*] Aribo, Ojo and Dodoo.

Correction, a suppressed tan G36C with the stock removed, or an unsuppressed MP5K.  I cannot seem to get any consistency out of a longer barrel. :(

 

Top tip: whatever else you get, or "upgrade", buy one <£100 AEG as well and leave it alone.

Was a good lot of games yesterday! had a lot of fun, apart from the friendly fire 😉 Was also good to meet @Rogerborg as well!

 

Got my UKARA handed in, just wondering how long it takes as well?

 

And my very first airsoft gun! WE G17 Gen4

Should be a good pistol from what I know about it. 

 

My ukara took me weeks but the owner was on holiday and it's him who files all the paperwork for it. Others get it in a few days. Probably have it within a week but it's a bit like how long is a piece of string.

Sorry that we didn't hook up more and bond and all that, I can't recognise people without their eyepro and guns. :(

 

Good choice on the Glock, I reckon, decent workhorse pewers.  And in the best colour scheme too.  Mmm, tan.
