Personally, I much prefer allowing people to wear what they want and make the distinction of sides a command decision.
Armbands are not as" paintball" as you may think. It's a time honored practice in theaters where the factions look the same " think Russian winter". When everyone is wearing whites the only way to distinguish your side was colored arm bands.
You may not need to go that far, but something as simple as a flash of a particular color applied to some agreed location on the body .. Most of us are festooned with. Velcro real estate, this solution to friend vs foe issues should not be that hard to solve without forcing people to wear bad camo.
This is actually a very good idea. It's the same reason, while armies wear their uniforms, they also wear other identifiers, like flags. Green is green, multiple nations now use Multicam, what differentiates them is that flag. While a flag isn't really practical for airsoft, the idea is still very valid Brian, and I like it.
