New Saskatchewan airsoft site

Hello, Im just letting everyone know there is a new Airsoft site in Saskatchewan. The site is very new. We are setting up a site for retail and to start a league setting for teams that are interested with ranked matches and tourny's with prizes, Trophies and most important bragging rights. You can visit us at www.saskairsoft.com if you want to check us out and sign up to the forums. I would like to know what people think, good and bad input please. Thank you

Saskatchewan already has a main website, PDW.
And you know that.

No point in having more than one, it just spreads information out and makes things more difficult.

I don't mean to take anything from pdw

Hello, I know of the pdw and I met a couple of the guys and I really like how they are ran things. With that said I'm not trying to take anything away from pdw's site, but I thought that the pdw web site was more of a team website that has matches they run and for other teams to post with the pdw squad. The idea for my website is not for my team or for any team, its for all teams to set up matches with themselfs and to see what people think of a league setting. Sorry if that upsets you but it is all in good fun thank you for your input

Sounds like nasty Paintball style Airsoft to me IMO.

If there is already a website for your region that is of good quality, why bother trying to make another?

Good luck with the retailing, it's always nice to have more retailers.

As for the other league stuff with points.....just no. Stop now.

Question

Hello, Im just wondering why isnt a league something airsofters what to get into. I love sporting events and challanges. Sims are fun but I like a good competition. But that might just be me.

Every airsoft game in Canada is NOT in a league. That's what keeps it fun.

no that's FACT more than anything, airsoft is based on honour unlike paintball hence the need for refs in paintball

Airsoft's main goal is about having fun, not collecting trophies and sponsors

Have a look at the events section of this very site and see if you see anything about leagues.

People just aren't into the league thing. There are lots of reasons. To sum it all up, it has been tried, and failed as the mindset is most everyone are into it for fun. There is very little competition and that creates a friendly environment. That is a positive thing for airsoft. Competition tends to bring out lots of unfriendliness, and lots of unhappy, which is negative for airsoft.. and we don't want any negative in airsoft. And that is the main reason.

response

I understand there is no league setting set up at all, and that kind of was the piont of my site and post. cause all the people that Im with in airsoft like the idea of a league. It would be nice to understand and get a better response other then "I just dont like" or hey "check the site there is no league in play"

Have you been out to any of the local (Regina) games that have been hosted? That is where the majority of players in Saskatchewan play. Theres a fair sized group in each of our major cities (Regina, Moose Jaw, Saskatoon), pretty much we mainly play skrims and milsims. Most of us left paintball and its style of play behind years ago.

Best thing to do is get your "group" and come out and meet the main group that plays here in Saskatchewan. For the most part I'd say its safe to say the majority of players out this way are not into leagues. We have our teams and each one is different. Some practice as a team on a regular basis, while others just group as a team for identity and enjoy playing together.

Best to research what your local community and outlying area of established players are into before jumping into the frying pan.

Other then that nothing wrong with another team website/forum being set up. Just keep in mind the majority of players are use to the 1 main forums here in Saskatchewan being the PDW boards and thats where they go to check out games. Posting them in multiple places less frequented just ensures that less people come to play at yours.


Also when did you join the Saskatchewan Airsoft Association? Don't remeber you? Just curious by your Website Page Title.
