Conflict and insurgency continues to brew in a de-stablized Kazakhstan. After the violent events of last year fighting continues between NATO and Russian forces further complicated by the presence and varied agendas of the citizens of Astana, Kazakhstan. One year later, and against the backdrop of a national election referendum on whether to join NATO or the Russian federation, the conflict has evolved into a low intensity war with Russia and NATO forces attempting to influence the local population . Caught in the middle of all of this are the Kazakh civilians a playable faction at MilSim West insurgency format events.
MilSim West Insurgency is a tactical role playing event for trigger fingers and brains. The variety of participant experiences in insurgency is much broader than the standard attack and defend formats of most events. You can choose to participate as a soldier, law enforcement, medical responder, government official, merchant, smuggler, spy, chef, tradesman or any combination of those roles as you navigate the political, social and tactical battle space of MSW Insurgency.
There are three participant factions: NATO (The occupiers), RUSFOR (the insurgent supporters), and CITIZENS. All factions are led by MSW Cadre as normal however the CITIZEN faction relies upon their elected and appointed officials, government agencies and trade to structure their experience during MSW Insurgency. Halfway through MSW Insurgency the CITIZEN faction will conduct an election which will force all within it to join either NATO or RUSFOR.
A series of checks and balances in the rules reward factions and participants for playing in the spirit of the game and punishes them for acting without any real motivation but mischief as is typical of roleplayers at the majority of milsim events where they are present. Killing of civilians by armed factions without cause will only result in that participant joining the opposing faction. Groups of CITIZENS will have to work together to acquire resources for the fight ahead. Those that keep their motives and resources a carefully guarded secret will have a distinct advantage.
MSW Insurgency offers a unique wargaming and roleplaying experience on a national scale run with the same attention to detail and commitment to quality that can be found in all MSW events. MilSim West insurgency is a social and tactical wargame designed to create unique experiences that push the boundaries of what the words “airsoft,” “milsim,” and “gaming” mean.
