|PQAC Presents: The Crimson Saga||Posted 2004/08/12@12:15 by x-ray|

The idea is that the results of each game will shape the story of the next one; i.e. objectives that are captured or accomplished in one game will affect the story line of the next game.
- Sunday August 15th : Crimson Hunt
- Sunday August 29th: (Name TBD)
- September 25th-26th: Nighthawk 4 (12 hours night game)
- October 16th-17th: Crimson Pegasus (24 hour game)

|RED VS BLUE Format for the PQAC 2004 Airsoft Season||Posted 2004/03/04@14:15 by x-ray|
After a period of R&D at the end of the last season, the PQAC has decided to implement the Red vs Blue format for regular 2004 airsoft season.
The main reason for choosing this format is to eliminate the “bad guy vs good guy” paradigm. In the past, day scenarios were written like this and the same crews always ended up playing the same roles.
By using the Red vs Blue format, this will allow the PQAC organizers more flexibility in the design of scenarios, and allow each side to be whatever they choose to be: there will be no US or Soviet groups. Therefore to reinforce this format, at the start of each gaming day, teams will be handed out a base flag with their respective color (like a country flag). To make this even more interesting, players are encouraged to make Velcro flags for their uniforms and gear (like the subdued American flag commonly seen on uniforms and rigs). The PQAC can also supply these flags, complete with Velcro backing, to interested players at a relatively low cost. Eventually, players will associate with a color or flag and we hope this will bring us closer to creating our own universe with its own history.
Like last year, scenarios in the 2004 season will be threads that are linked to each other, meaning that the outcome of one will affect the beginning of the next.
NOTE: For major events like Centra Spike, OPCT, and Nighthawk, this format will usually not apply. The usual NATO, OPFOR, CARTEL, etc will remain in effect in accordance with the scenario.
|Operation Centra Spike 2||Posted 2004/03/04@12:50 by x-ray|
Operation Centra Spike is a Next Level milsim game hosted by the PQAC. It is an immersive role playing experience where the focus is put on realism. Players will be asked to play a role, as well equip, dress themselves, and act accordingly.
|Vondnik Joins The PQAC Team||Posted 2004/02/16@19:00 by x-ray|

However he demarks himself in his desire to help grow the sport in a safe and fun environment. Vondnik will certainly be an asset to the PQAC. As well as participating in the administration of games and events, Vondnik will help develop new players in the French community. |
Vondnik, glad to have you!
The PQAC admins.
|Operation Winter Storm||Posted 2003/11/20@11:00 by x-ray|
The UN found a missile in a weapons cache and must take it to NATO so they can dispose of it. But this missile is very much valuable to both Serbs and Croats. Who will get to launch the missile? Only the best team! So don't delay any longer and enroll!

|You must be at least 16 yrs old to play||Posted 2002/09/20@16:00 by x-ray|
|Last Sunday there was some confusion as to how old you have to be to play with the PQAC. So I'm stating it here explicitly:|
You must be at least 16 yrs old to play in PQAC events.
If you are 16 of 17 years old, we require written consent from your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) for you to participate in the event. It is not enough for them to come with you, we need it in writing. If we have any doubts we will check ID, and we will not hesitate to send people home. We did not create this rule because we don't like teenagers. It exists to protect ourselves from the liability associated with having younger players on the field.
If you are 16 or 17, it should also be rather difficult fo you to purchase a gun, as most retailers will not sell to anyone under 18 (again a liability issue).
Finally, I would like to personally apologize to the people who came out to the Rigaud field and had to be turned away because they did not meet this requirement. It though I had made it clear in written communication with them, but it was not clearly stated on our site. I apologize for wasting your time.

|Hosting The Image In Your Profile||Posted 2002/08/12@13:04 by x-ray|
|Some members have asked wher they can host the image in their member profile.|
A good place to do this is by registering in the AirsoftZone player database; AirsoftZone lets you upload an image. You can then link to this image in your PQAC profile (to get the address of the image after you register with AirsoftZone, right click on it and select properties). You could also host the file on you own personal web site (free web space is available with most ISP services today) and link to it there
If you're having difficulties, or have more questions just email me
