Long game Question

After reading through a lot of game posts here and through various U.S. airsoft sites and what not I got to wondering. How many folks would attend a 3 day long game? For argument sake the game would be modern milisim held over 3 days during a long weekend or something. Camping would be held on field in each teams operations base.
I have seen that our American counter parts seem to go all out and hit events that take up entire weekends. Mind you they have a larger base of players than we do but it made me wonder just how many folks in Canada would go to such an event?

I would definitely go, camping and airsoft into one experience, who could want more?

The longest airsoft event in the world is Berget in Sweden, its a week long airsoft event.

A non-stop three day scenario, or a scenario parceled into three days?

For argument sakes let say.. 3 day long scenario.... now that should make it really interesting...lol.

But comments on both would be welcomed as well... I am just wondering where Canadian airsofters are at as opposed to American airsofters.

I'd be all for it, although like likelihood that I'd be able to get away for a full 3 days is next to nil.

I'd love something like that... only problem is of course, many people do not have enough equipment for games like that (enough batteries and the like)

You would need a Very Very large secluded area, a few hundred acres at the very least to sustain something to last that long. Or a very small player cap just to keep things interesting. People get bored and "wander" aimlessly if they are not entertained enough. It would really have to be a very well disciplined group of players, not your average skirmisher etc. Just my two cents. A 48 hr OP would be fun...72 might be pushing the fun bar a bit out of my reach.

I agree with Ex, 48 hours non stop would be great. Each team would have a base to retreat to for rearming and reloading, with command posts that can be captured and occupied. The whole field would be in play, no out of play areas to "take a break". It would definitly be test of organizational skills for the host, keeping objectives and missions going to keep everyone in the fight. I'd be up for it, and I think the player cap should be kept low to have quality players over a quantity of players that will get bored/tired/lazy.

Something like this would be cool. Though perhaps before jumping right into a 48-72 hour op perhaps first do a non-stop 24 hour one. That way it's still long that the stress and tiredness factor will kick in but short enough that the organizers can get a really good idea of the logistical needs for a longer running game as well.

isn't there an event similar to this?

I'm speaking of BorderWars

The idea of making long games is very interesting. Having 200+ airsofters playing for 2-3 days non stop would really make it nice. That's only if EVERYONE participates and plays fair. (calling hits)

Border wars has breaks and safe areas. I think this is like no breaks no safe areas, sleep and eat with goggles on and can be attacked at any time. Basically no matter what you're doing you're still in play.

The reason I ask is that after reading many posts and AA reports from various games in the states it seems that the majority of players really like those total immersion type games that last all weekend and I wonder how many of the Canadian airsofter's are into that type of game?
