Haven't played in years, I feel lost-ontario

What is going on?

1.) Checked in to see some games, and it's mostly empty.. have games moved to Facebook? Reddit? Something else? Or has airsoft died down?

2.) Is vfc not top dog?

3.) What's the Poppin camo? Is everyone still rocking multicam?

4.) Are guardians of Asgard still a team? Who's the teams in Ontario still going?

Thanks all... Trying to get back into a game or two

1) Games are sometimes posted here, sometimes on the ASC FB group. (This place is for the most part pretty dead aside from the classifieds)
2) VFC is still very much top dog, along with LCT
3) Multicam is still go to
4) GoA is still alive. Bunch of us still play, some are retired, some starting to come back out of retirement.

You are in for quite a surprise. I played back in 2009-10, the days where there were no regular Airsoft venues and most games were invite/ASC only.

Now there are quite a few places around Ontario dedicated to Airsoft. My favourite being Siege Airsoft. You'll also be surprise to see a new class of players, the Speedsofters or SpeedQB players. See video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7TgqtajPno&t=6s Basically a blend of Speedball and Airsoft together. I find there seems to be more SpeedQB teams than Milsim Teams.

Back then all those private ASC games were midcaps only. Now most players carry high caps. Of course there are those who still play with Mid caps but you'll find hi-caps are more common.

Still I have fun either way. You may hear people say "There are so many cheaters nowadays" or "People aren't calling their hits." it's fine, cause us oldies just have to teach them the "Fire for effect." rule in which we continue shooting them until they call it. Then let the refs know too

Personally, I've found the quality of players to have declined. It's basically a rarity at this point now that people even stay for the entirety of a full milsim. When this place was the gatekeeper AND the educator, things were a lot different. All we can really do is try and guide the new players along the right path and the right attitude to this hobby.

I would LOVE to go back to the invite/asc only days.

High caps? So the noobs won eh? Lol

Siege was still a thing last I left, I just never cared for cqb. Too many shots I wouldn't want to give/take.... Unless it's Picton. Is that place still hosting milsims?

I agree with most of the statements above. The quality of the common player has gone down. When I first started playing in 2009 it was a whole different atmosphere, especially here on ASC. These days this site doesn't see too much traffic other than the sales threads, and spammers.

Yeah The old ways will not come back. But if you still play and you still have a tight group of friends that play as well, don't lose them! I still have a lot of fun with a group of friends I play with. Never a dull moment. And if we do spot a cheater, we Fire For Effect. Shoot all the fleshy spots until they call it.
