I've been to an event that had somewhere in the three hundred attendees mark. If there was no camo seperation, people would be shooting team mates as you aren't going to recognize a hundred or more team mates. Camo separation is the easiest way to accomplish this.
Personally, I'd like to see only a handful of "allowed" camo patterns at events. I think that will be the future of the sport. But for now, we need a camo pattern that opposites multicam. Even though multicam causes debate, I've never attended a game where it was not considered tan. So it does matter. If I say attend Claybank, Battlefield, Fiery Spoon, Risky Sun, Etc; itll be predetermined tan or green. And more than likely it'll be considered the same at all of the above, even though they are put on by different groups/teams.
It enevitably will be decided by the major game organizers, and serious well known teams. Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba have large groups connected together. We tend to all share some general ideals, and talk often whilst attending each others events. And the tan/green system is alive and well here. Where a small milsim usually has between sixty and one hundred players in attendance, it's "easiest" to separate by pattern. And I estimate that system will continue for some time.
My team runs multicam. Some of us think it's tan, others green. That's not important. What is important is that it "is" considered tan at 99% of the events we go to. Therefore we know which team we will be on. We are in the market for a "predominantly considered green camo", and A-Tacs FG caught my eye. However I haven't seen enough of it used yet to see where it's going to be placed. But it "will" be sided with one or the other. So does any game organizers or Airsoft conglomerates know or have a thought as to where it'll end up? We all know it has tan and green, and placement could be argued. But the powers that be will tilt it one way.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
