Airsoft is fucking serious.
I'm my first job. My day job is just to support my airsoft.

Warning, a little bit of a rant coming on!

Good topic right about now especially with this BC wide fps draft going around as of late. I run semi private games here in Mission both night and day games and if I have to adhere to all this nit picking ( not going into details ) 8 days before my scheduled mil/sim on Sept 18th I will freak,I'll run rogue and run my own show labeled as private and take as many players as want to jump on board with me. Don't get me wrong I will adhere to and obey any rules at any field I decide to play at,but I will not force MY players that sign up for my sim's to adhere to anything other than what I post up.

Ok much better now,no more Joe pesci flare ups.

The moto I post under my game sign ups is as such:

"My games are for the not f@@kn' around crew,if this is you sign up,if it's not stay home"

So yes I take my airsoft seriously.....

LOL excellent topic

I'm a competitive athlete, I wanna win, but it's still a game.
However I know of some people that think it's the army. Like, their airsoft gear includes a mess kit. Serious.

The only thing which I take super seriously in airsoft, and will piss me off to no extent, is when the dead talk. I don't particularly care if you're a goofball, nooby, or dead serious milsimmer... shut the fuck up after you call hit. I have literally been in a room (behind a door that opens towards me) , at night, had an entry team come in, I kill them both, had them apologise to me (wtf?) then tell the next entry team where I was as they left.

Major Buzzkill.

On a side note, Im not quite sure how serious some people take training, but there are groups of likeminded individuals, and if you train, they will notice.

In my experience there are three grades of players:

Group 1 - the casual players for whom its just another game or weekend sport, the way some people will go play tennis or ride a bike or something: go play every once in a while for shits and giggles if the weather is nice and nothing else is planned;

Group 2 - the serious players, who see airsoft as a more serious hobby and will invest more money into good gear and higher end guns. Not unlike people involved in amateur league sports (but it's still just a game): will try to make it out to games regularly, might play on a team, will be much more serious about the game although they might be skirmishers as much as milsimmers;

Group 3 - players for whom airsoft is a lifestyle rather than just an occasional hobby or sport: as with any other lifestyle choice, a regular and significant portion of income is used to support it; guns and gear are important -- you don't see pro athletes using low end equipment or serious musicians playing Walmart guitars; many everyday friends are fellow airsofters (usually people who also have an airsoft lifestyle); involvement in the airsoft world is daily [some of us dedicating our free time to staff forums and such ]; schedules are fitted around airsoft dates, moreso since many of people in this category are organizers (specially of major/serious events); they might be on a team (if they can find like-minded people) and will usually take the team very seriously; and they take the game very seriously, because it's a fundamental part of their lives -- and by extension dislike having it trashed by "tourists" who just come out to fuck around.


Obviously I'm part of Group 3.

I think, generally speaking, group 1 and 3 don't get along that well ("OMFG asshole elistists" vs. "Stupid noobs with clear guns")

If I was in BC, I'd wanna check out Six4's games.

I agree with Drake on the 3 groups.

I spending literaly all my money on gear because I love re-enacting.

If I'm killing my feet in leather Corcorans at everygame, I don't want to see someone next to me in Nike with jeans and a hoodie that "order" me to move forward because his clearsoft has "no fps therefore no range".

And I hate when the "dead" are standing because there is mud/sand/debris on the group.

I take airsoft as seriously as I can given that I play about once a month. I play to have a good time and learn something new about the games nuances. I prefer games with a historical theme. I enjoy games with a chain of command and kit requirements. Training events are useful.

In general, I find airsoft games to be similar to bedding a hot chick that farts after sex. It was a good time but some of the experience I could have done without.

for me its 100% a game, but that doesn't mean it can't be serious

My style of playing is just trying to have fun though. I mean I'm not a real soldier, and I don't pretend like I'm one, while I've seen people who really think of themselves as real soldiers...

I don't really care about them though, if they have some fun doing it, so be it! For me, I just try to play as strategic as I can, and thats all. no matter if I end the game at 20-5 or at 5-20, it doesn't matter as long as I had some fun. I play fair, I call my hits, and this is all that is importan to me... if the guy I shoot don't call their hits, I don't even care, it just gives me the opportunity to shoot at him again! lol.

yeah me too. I like to win. but in the end, its the team that has to win, not me. this is why I was saying that I don't care ending a game at 5-20... if we won, we won! but in the very end... we have fun doing it, so winning or loosing really makes no difference. We have a cool day with nice people, and that's priceless!

While I know what you're getting at, just because they are dressed to go to the mall, you shouldnt underestimate players who are poorly dressed, some of the most fierce guys I know roll jeans and a hoodie.

In fact, next nonmilsim I go to, Im going to roll jeans and hoodie and see how I get treated.

I just want to shoot people with limited consequences. Seriously.

What do you mean, "I get to play action hero" for the day and not sit around in front of the computer getting fat(ter)? sign me up.

It's a game period, I don't want to wear everyshit a real soldier wear on his vest but I like to look like one so my gear is expensive, but I don't have useless things like fake gps on my wrist or tourniquet etc. I also like to play with people well equipped like me because that fucking looks bad ass.

I like the realistic look of that game, otherwise I would be playing paintball to shoot on people.
