May 20th, 2017 the main Russian paintball event, the Big Paintball Maneuvers™ will be held 20km out of Moscow.
This year theme is Maneuvers of Thrones!
Some day the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros were united under the Targaryen dynasty but the Baratheon’s rebellion deposed and killed the last Targaryen king. So he was first to climb the Iron Throne but not last – many of the great Houses of Westeros would like to became a new dynasty in this Medieval saga.
Now the Houses are united in two alliances – North and South. Both are mighty and powerful and led by ambitious leaders who can use dragons (both tracked and wheeled) and priests (both armor-piercing and antipersonnel). So attach your hopper to your… er… sword and join the House you like most! And yes, you can use a shield.!
What is the BPM™?
It's BIG - around 3000 players;
PAINTBALL - with markers, tanks, mortars, pyrotechnics and other paintball equipment
MANEUVERS - non-stop 7-hours scenario game on ~1 sq.kilometer site with tens of missions and tasks.
Every BPM has their own theme, scenario and entourage. Both sides form HQ and "regiments" to fight for score points.
BPM is held in mid-May since 1998 by Top-Gun and Guards Paintball Fields and Action Paintball Games. More than 200 personal make the game possible - refs, game technics, sellers, security, cooks etc.
Sides will be guided by HQ - Head Commander, Regiments Commanders, radio operators, staff officers etc. HQ will receive a constant flow of missions and send players to fulfill them. Usually, more experienced players are promoted to squad/group/regiment commanders and receive special insignia. Single players can report to HQ Meeting Point where specially appointed commanders will lead them into the battle. So any player will have chance to engage into 100+ players firefight, raid the opposition's rear or ambush the roads, storm the buildings, destroy the tanks or conduct other forms of paintball bravery and merit an award.
