ASC Server Maintenance
Sep 12, 2014 - 2:29 PM - by Mantelope
Hey all, you may have noticed some technical problems with the forums lately; our server HDDs are reporting some errors and they need to be replaced. We've scheduled this to happen at 2AM on the 14th, early Sunday morning, and it could take up to six hours or even longer if there are complications. Rest assured that we have offsite backups so there is no risk of catastrophic data loss. If you need any information for Sunday morning like game details, I recommend copying them down some time before Saturday evening.

If anyone's counting, the server has now been up without a restart for 936 days, a little over two and a half years.

Lifetime Membership Charity Auction
Sep 04, 2014 - 9:01 PM - by bean
You read that right. Are you tired of paying a yearly fee to keep a big inbox and that fancy ass tag. Well here's your chance to do it with all the money going to Wounded Warrior.

Here is how it works. There might be multiple winners pending on how the bidding goes. That means you can bid the same as someone but that can only happen once. So two people can bid the same price the next bidder has to bid higher then them by $5. All increased bids must be $5 more then the previous. You can add onto someone's bid if you like them say +$20 to Aqua's bid etc. Bidding starts at $70. Because I'm awesome bidding begins on my birthday September 14 and runs until one of my favorite holidays Halloween.

Feel free to ask questions if things aren't clear from now and when the contest starts. When it starts bid high and bid often.

Blacksheep MilSim Squad Tactics Training
Apr 10, 2014 - 12:56 PM - by foxtrot-one7


When: May 17th 2014
Where: Niagara Quartermaster Airsoft Field
--->Map, click here

Cost: $55

(patches included)




Ever wanted to participate in real MILSIM training?
Need to brush up on your Squad Tactics?



“Squad Tactics is the foundation for MILSIM. It’s a gamechanger for those who attend this training and achieve proficiency. Any level of tactical operations is based on squads doing their job – a platoon is 3+squads working together, a company is 12+ squads working together, a battalions 45+ squads working together. Obviously there are increasing levels of command, control and communication required at higher levels.

Training is conducted using common practices from the USArmy – Crawl, Walk and Run phases. The Crawl phase is about two hours of classroom instruction. The Walk phase is about one hour of open field manoeuvres to practice the principles taught in the classroom. The Run phase is about a five hour live fire exercise where squads defend and attack – there is plenty of trigger time. Each battle is followed by an After Action Review to discuss lessons learned.”


Throughout the day you will learn the following:

-Leadership Building Blocks
-Leadership Procedures
-Take Charge Minute
-Five Point Contingency Plan
-Reporting Enemy Information
-METT-T
-OCOKA
-Actions on Capturing POWs
-The Clock Method
-Warning Order
-Operation Order (OPORD)
-Arm & Hand Signals
-Individual Movement Techniques
-Buddy Team Movement/Communication
-Temporary Fighting Positions
-Fighting Position Characteristics
-The Fire Team
-Fire Team Bounding
-The Squad
-Squad Movement
-Fire Team Defensive Position
-Squad Defensive Position
-Platoon & Company Operations
-Offensive Combat Drill
-Defence – Priority of Work
-Defence – Responsibilities



Blacksheep6's MILSIM manuals will be avalible for on-site purchase for an additional $10

2015 Airsoft Charity Calendar!
Apr 02, 2014 - 11:13 PM - by Aquamarine


It's officially ready AND for sale!!! The 2015 charity calendar produced by my studio, Pozland Photography is officially ready go to out the door!!!
We are using money raised by this 'Dangerous Toys' calendar to help those affected by the tsunami in the Minamisoma region of Japan. We plan on forwarding funds to the Save Minamisoma Project (http://saveminamisoma.org/) in hopes of of bringing fresh water, food and assistance to those who lost homes and families during the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

I have spent a couple well over a year and a half putting this together, including girls who are involved in airsoft as players, as spouses of players or those who are simply interested in the military. Our girls come from various parts of the world such as Japan (where most of the photos were shot), Russia, Germany, Canada, New Zealand and even Brazil!)

Our calendars are only $20+ shipping and can be purchased either directly through me via EMT or through our website at http://airsoft-calendar.squarespace.com/ (where credit cards ARE accepted). Our first-run batch is ONLY 40 copies and more will be produced if there is call.

We would like to thank all of those involved in the assistance of production. Our models, location owners, make-up artists and those who donated clothing and airsoft guns for the photo shoots! Help make someone's life a little better and pick up a calendar or two for yourself, your husband's man-cave, or as a gift for a friend!

*noted, the calendar is a swimsuit/lingerie calendar, but is being given a PG-13 rating and is more or less safe for those over 13 years of age... in other words, if you've hit puberty, then it's safe*

Threats of Physical Harm
Mar 12, 2014 - 12:58 AM - by BloodSport
I should not be having to make a post about this, threatening other members with physical harm is against the forum rules, and can also become an issue with the authorities if the member threatened deems it necessary to contact the police.

Tonight I was provided proof from a member who received a threat from another member to act with physical harm at an upcoming event.

Said member has been given his only warning to never do so again here. Next time it is full removal from the site for ever.

I am also providing said members information to the event hosts for them to make their own decision on whether to allow him access to their events or not.

If you threaten physical harm, and the receiving party decides to take it to the police and they investigate we will give up your information if it is done via ASC to the police. This includes your age verification information.

No one needs or deserves threats of physical assault over anything to do with out sport like that.

Nuff said.

Op georgian spring - 30 mar 14 - black cobra airsoft
Jan 28, 2014 - 1:00 PM - by Kokanee


Background Narrative

Spring of 2021, the world has been greatly destabilized politically and economically by resource shortages, multiple regional wars and economic crashes. In an attempt to stabilize their country, the government of Georgia enters into final negotiations with both NATO and the European Union with an aim to joining both organizations. However, after both the Ukraine and Belarus begin to make similar overtures to join Georgia in it's negotiations, the residents of Tibsili awake in the early morning to the sounds of explosions and the drone of Russian TU-95 long range bombers streaking overhead. Advance elements of the Russian 106th Guards Airborne Division lead the spearhead, followed by armoured and motorized infantry which have launched a surprise attack through the northern Georgia frontier.

NATO and EU military forces throughout the region are placed on high alert. As the Georgian military crumbles against the Russian onslaught, preparations are made to launch the largest military operation since the second Iraq war, and to liberate Georgia.

Come on out to the first game of the Edmonton 2014 season!
