I'm sure many of you have seen this video by now. This is definately one of the worst incidents I have seen and/or heard of, or even witnessed. This video was seriously dissapointing, and I hope everyone can take something away from it.
Airsoft is a game of competition, realism, and honor, but too often sparks anger and frustration. People not calling their hits, getting sprayed by too many rounds, teams/players blatantly cheating, games falling apart, campers, players shooting into your spawn point, giving your all only to get your ass kicked, etc, etc, and more etc. All of these things are aggravating and unfortunately all too common in airsoft. When we go out and play, we accept that these inevitabilities will happen, and will create more obstacles than necessary sometimes to enjoy our day of shooting. But none of that matters, it just happens, and a smart airsofter will push on and make it fun. Anyone who gets shot can be reshot, anyone who is cheating can be reported, and any game that falls apart can be fixed.
My point is that no matter what goes wrong, these behaviours are unacceptable. Fighting, screaming, threatening, etc, has very literally NO PLACE
, on the field. If you can't control yourself or your temper, if idiots set you off easily, or if you resort to any of theee behaviours, YOU
do not belong out there. Go play checkers by yourself if you're an emotional wreck. Congratulations, you're the equivalent of a twelve year old threatening and whining at people while playing COD online.
If anyone's witnesses this type of behaviour at an airsoft event, report them to the admins immediately, and hope the admins have the foresight to ban them for life.
