Scenario Shenanigans: The Series
“Making A Grown Man Cry”
This story comes to you from a more recent scenario event where I got to watch a grown man practically cry. So, how do you make a grown man cry you may be asking… The answer is simple. Their team was immobilized by some outside-of-the-box thinking. A team managed to come up with an alternative to traditional rocket launcher projectiles, and went a step further and had the field owner say it was okay two times. Then, it was only to be reversed the day of by some whiney grown ass men because they were getting shut down.
These men chose to hide behind the net of their tank rather than stand on the field of battle. Behind the net they are free to do whatever (from shooting rocket launchers to shooting paintballs at those who stand before them). Where does the crying come in you may ask? It’s when they can’t reach you with a nerf rocket, however your field approved alternative methods can shut them down. They can’t beat you on the field so they take it off field to the owners, crying “it’s not fair” and “they’re tearing our netting”. At least they claim, so they pull us from the field. Once off the field the lies begin to flood the air. They’re tearing the netting on the tanks we’re told and our response is, let’s go look at your netting. When no holes were found, the story changed to “they’re just unsafe”. The strange part is, I was watching the approved projectiles go thru the netting into their cabs. The disturbing part I found is the extent in which people will lie and twist the truth to appease those people they favor. I actually had someone lie and say they were using those same projectiles to shoot people, knowing full well this was a bold faced lie as I was next to that individual the whole game. The stories changed again once questioned on it and of course, left another grown man crying.
So after enough whining, the launcher is pulled from the field and they bow their chests thinking the game had been won, but where they oh so wrong. That just pissed off the other side to no end. There were other shenanigans the second day with the final battle and all, but that’s another story for another day.
I guess it amazes me the extent that a grown ass man will go to all in the name of securing a win. A win that would be tainted by their blatant lies and disregard for the rules and the pure fun of the game. A grown ass man who claims to be about fair play and honesty only to try and utilize any lies they can to take out someone who managed to outsmart them on the field.
