A player is eliminated from the game when a mark (the size of a nickel or bigger) is left on them or any of their equipment. If you call yourself out without a break, you’re still out. When eliminated, shout “Hit!” loud enough for those in your vicinity to clearly hear you, raise your marker in the air, as if you were surrendering and make your way off the field keeping your marker in the air. Before you leave the field make sure your barrel cover is on your marker. A player can surrender at anytime. You do not have to wait to be hit. To surrender shout “Surrender”, “Hit” or “Out” and put your gun up over your head to show you are out. Eliminated players should head back to the respawn, or staging area. Eliminated players are not allowed to talk to or signal to live players, “Dead men tell no tales.” An eliminated player cannot shoot while exiting the field, nor are they to be shot at. After the game be sure to wipe off any old hits. Players can be eliminated for old hits. Re-Spawns for the Vintage Big Game are unlimited!
Start & Respawn
At the start of the game the gold team will start behind the Bypass castle on Conquest. The black team will start at the close entrance on Stadium. These start positions will switch at half time. The Vintage BIG Game has unlimited respawns, but you must go back to your spawn area and visit the ref, show your wristband, wipe your old hits, and chrono your marker. All eliminated players must use their barrel bag when walking back to respawn! NO RESPAWN in the final battle! Please review the Vintage Big Game map to see the overall boundaries. Players are not allowed on opposing team spawn maps at any time. Failure to comply will result in said player being eliminated.
Wristbands & Armbands
Wristbands are proof that you paid admission for the game. Wristbands will be checked every time you go on the field and respawn. Please wear them outside your equipment. Failure to produce a wristband when checked will result in dismissal from the game. Armbands will be provided to gold team players. At any point if a player loses his armband or is caught without one, that player is eliminated. If your armband falls off during the game referee discretion is to be used. All players will have an armband on their LEFT arm.
