PostSubject: [CONTEST] Military Fan-Fiction Contest   Tue Jul 04, 2017 7:51 am

Happy 4th of July everybody! Today is when Americans like myself will spend the day preparing barbecue on the grill, spending time with family, and blowing shit up in the name of the glorious U.S. of A.

But while everyone is busy celebrating, it can be easy to forget that we wouldn't have the freedom to do these things if it wasn't for the bravery and sacrifices of the men and women of the armed forces. That is why we wanted to celebrate soldiers around the world with this month's contest.

The Military Fan-Fiction Contest

The theme for this contest is the Military. That doesn't just mean the U.S. military. ANY military personnel, equipment, and vehicles are allowed in this contest. The only thing we ask is that we keep the submissions centered around past or modern military styling.

This means Star-Wars, Star-trek, and other Sci-fi related titles are not allowed in this contest. We already did an entire contest for Science Fiction games. Also, games that jump the line between modern and Sci-fi such as Black Ops 2, 3 and Advanced Warfare will not be allowed. If you're upset we're not including SCi-fi games in this contest, I suggest you read this quote from @DVAted concerning the same matter when mixing the themes was suggested during the May Event Poll:
So, in the bounds of respect and good taste, please respect the theme for this contest: Modern Military.

So give us your very best submissions from games such as Call of Duty 1 to MW3, The Battlefield franchise, Insurgency, Tom Clancy's many games, World of Tanks, Arma, Counter-Strike, Verdun, and many more! Show off the soldiers in your favorite games and give those boys and girls some love and attention! These games are just suggestions, but if you're not sure if your game would be allowed, PM me and ask!


The submission period for this contest starts today!
July 4th - July 31st

After the submission period is over, a team of judges will deliberate, with the winners announced by August 5th .

Now, onto the real reason anyone does anything nowadays...REWARDS!

3. Everyone who participates receives a guaranteed +1 rep from organizers;

2. The winner and runner-up (1st and 2nd place) will be awarded a game key from the official list of game rewards:

1. Also, if the 1st place winner is not already a colonial, he will be instantly promoted!
(*members who have been demoted due to certain more or less recent grave infractions will not qualify for this reward)

I wish everyone that participates good luck, happy posting, and May the 4th be with you! LightSaberBattle

and don't forget to also participate in our other contests:

The Military Screenshots Contest

It was roughly September 1968, My unit was out on extended patrol. Basically we were sent to patrol some random section of jungle. These normally lasted anywhere from 3 days to a week. It was probably our second day in the jungle, we had set up camp for the night. Being the forward observer, for those who don't know I called in artillery when needed, I radioed in our position. They liked to do random shelling and it'd be nice if we didn't get hit by friendly fire... so its just after dusk and I'm laying in my hammock opening up my C-Ration when a monkey comes down from the trees and shows some interest in my food, so I pull out a chocolate bar I had in my pack break off a chunk and give it to the little guy. He sits on my chest and eats with me. Suddenly guys on the perimeter start shooting and sound the alarm, turns out we were being followed by some NVA. I jump up and grab my m16 and begin firing on anything that moves. The ambush lasts for about an hour, the NVA flee leaving us to tend to the wounded and check for our dead... I take a seat and notice a lump in my field jacket, turns out the monkey had climbed into my jacket when the fighting started, there he was sleeping. Anyways the rest of the patrol went fine and after that we were sent home for some R&R, and I decided that the little guy was gonna tag along and go home with me; figured my kids would take good care of him...
little back story about me and this story, both of my grandfathers served in Vietnam, sadly my grandfather on my mothers side is no longer with us, he passed after a motorcycle accident in 2014. As I have grown up my grandfather on my dads side would tell me stories about his time in Vietnam, this was opposite of my late grandfather, the war hit him hard and left him with some pretty bad PTSD. Anyways i hope everyone enjoys the story as i enjoyed writing it.

2005 i was deployed in a city middle of a desert the camp area away from the city was rather calm but more you get close to the city would hear more and more explosions gun shots i was nothing more than a combat medic i was never the guy to feel invincible in battle but when we were on a mission to secure a piece of street with other 3 squads with us with all the tanks and humvees i was feeling invincible as if nothing could defeat us when all of us were in the street getting in the homes to check when suddenly from midlle of the street a boy start running at us before we could notice one of our tanks were gun the boy was blown to bits the gunner of the tank was screaming we get him out below knee was pretty much gone nothing i could do at the moment when we realised the guys looking at us from end of the street we got inside a home i was trying to keep the poor bastard alive with both of his feet and most of his lower leg gone 10 minute that went like 10 hour seeing a guy die before my eyes i was doing everything i can with him telling me to stop how he wanted to die and pain was too much i just couldnt let him die until the reinforcements arrived i get to know a dying guy more than i know myself everything he told me the more he went on the more i wanted to make him get up again i was brought back to real world by my sergeant scraming "get the fuck down" when i realised there was a hand grenade i throw the gunner to the back of the room and throw myself on him the explosion didnt do anything but shrapnels was a another story the sergant wasnt as lucky as me he was struck by shrapnels he was on the ground i was in the middle of a room with 2 dying good man i tried to attend to sergant as much i can but the wounds were too much after the 10 minutes when the heli finally arrived for the wounded gunner all of us got evacuated when we got down to the camp and the wounded gunner was getting rushed to medical tent i was just sitting there what happened in those 10 minutes i just sat there and start thinking about what happened.

İ know im bad and very amateur but what bad can come from participating i tried my best at least
