making personal connections... face to face is pretty much a lost art.

This community exists much more virtually than physically.

It is now very possible for someone to show up at a game fully kitted , gun purchased gear purchased .... having never met another person.

The issues are not so much that the players have changed .. they have.. but that the community has not changed to adapt to the extant social and material conditions.
