I got smoked this morning on our usual hardcore server just at day break; 5am server time; I stumbled close into a downed helo with zombies all over the place. Still not sure how I made it out of the area back towards where airdog got smoked the other night on the same server.
Anyway I was in the about 500 meters due west of the helo (more on how I know that in a second) in the east/southeast tree line at 074/080 scoping zombies to find out their pattern so I could continue the transit back to base camp. I was talking with Krazy about setting up a helo grab with him on a Bizon supporting me on the move.
Anyway about the time we start talking seriously about this I spot another other TSA dude (no face paint) with a silenced weapon and I was pretty sure he wasn't a threat to me. He was just in the tree line east of the helo but there is smoke going like crazy out about 100 meters southwest of his posit. I didn't know it was smoke till I moved a little south to get a better view on the northern tree line due to my line of sight being blocked by a terrain feature.
So I sit there and make the decision to smoke him (he was a threat and obviously well equipped) so I can transit the area cleanly and leave the helo till help can arrive on the server which luckily sSnakeyes did. So I lined up TSA dude and missed low on the 400 meter zero on the DMR. A quick distance adjustment and I shot him in the back as he turned around looking east up the hill since he saw the impact in front I can only guess that he thought someone was behind him and shot high. Just as he is falling down he discoes; which I honestly hope they patch out; and I am thinking that I should do the same but I didn't. I stayed and decided to move south towards Guglovo to clear the AO. When I shot him the zombies left the scene only to reappear about 3-4 minutes later and I heard some silenced rounds being fired off and watched a few zombies drop but had no idea where the rounds were coming from so I evade back west more. This was a fatal mistake coupled with the fact that I should have server hopped also as I took at least one silenced round to the back of the head.
So I logged back in a couple of times to come in at Cap Golova; so I climbed Pik Kozlova and headed on a general bearing of due north. Now I am geared back up and ready to go hunting as I think this dude I saw this morning was one of the other group that we have been hunting for a few days now. I think I may have run into them and now they have my map and my ALICE pack along with some other gear but none of it was absolutely necessary like the map, DMR, 6 mags, matches, wood, 6 uncooked steaks, 4 cans of beans and franks, 2 pain killers, 3 morphine injectors and the 4 water bottles I had. They did leave the body there that I recovered some of the stuff like my watch, one water bottle and a ACU pack that they traded for the ALICE.
Anyway I am now just southeast of the downed helo there laying low and hoping to ambush their butts when they come romping through on the way back to the Guglovo area where I think they have their base camp.
