Last week we celebrated our 10th anniversary by firing 12000 small plastic 100mph paint filled packets of pain at each other, a true sign of camaraderie if ever there was one.
Being a games company means there are more than a few first-person-shooter-obsessives and paint balling seemed a great way for everyone else in the studio to physically shoot them for once in zombie crypts and deserted airfields.
The general stumbling about, swearing, blindly shooting through misty goggles was enjoyed by all. However it was only when we were allowed to play as Playerthree against all other players that the years of online tactics actually paid off as we ‘took down’ 22 opponents for the loss of only 4 of ours.
“Watch your back award” to Adam & James for the last man standing bonus match. “Platoon Award” to Gyorgy for his poetic slow motion death roll. “Evil Eyes” award to Duncan for obvious reasons. “F&!*C£%$!K” award to Marion for being a not-so-silent assassin, the “Get to the Chopper” award to Joe in hitting his head on the Castle door - HoooRaaa! Last but not least the “Ouch” award to Chris.
We’re all still nursing bruises, sore legs and even a few post-battle hangovers but will definitely do it again. Thanks to Delta Force for being our hosts and thanks to all out team present and past who have made it such a rewarding and enjoyable journey.
Heres to the next ten years.
