Hmmm how to describe a 2 day ...
The scenarios that Giant and WCSP put on pretty much play all day Saturday, with a break for dinner then night game and game play is back on Sunday.
You're looking at a continuous stretch of play time, not unlike walk-on where game play is 15 minutes or so.
With big games and scenarios, once you're shot, you can get back in, you just have to know what those rules are.
Each side has a "General" and maybe Second in Command or XO's. They get missions from whoever is running the event and for each side to get points, they have to complete those missions. Points are accumulated over the weekend and after final tally, whoever has the most points, wins! Some example missions are: escort VIP, take and hold spot for XX minutes, destroy enemy CP and so on. The leadership looks for players that want to complete missions and send them off.
The majority of players are out there to shoot and gain ground
There are players that do want to complete missions because it is something out of the norm.
Also at times there maybe roleplaying. The General has to meet with an "Arms Dealer" to buy tactical airstrikes as an example.
Off the field, you can stay as early as Friday night, camp out, meet other players new and experienced and see all the teams that come out to play.
All teams are pretty much recruiting and if you're interested in joining, an event like this is a good time to see them in person and get to see if you are a good fit with them or they are a team that you are looking for. The majority of scenario players here are very helpful and will answer any questions.
At the end of the weekend, the Generals give out awards like Most Valuable Player, Most Valuable Team, Sportsmanship Award and so on. And finally they have a raffle lol.
