Welcome to the Opponents Wanted section of the forums! Our job here is to help you get in touch with other players so you can get playing ASL as quickly as possible. That's why you popped into this section of the forums, right? :)

Another good rule of thumb is that if you are replying to an opponents wanted request, do so in their thread even just to say that you have sent them a private message or email. That helps everyone else know if the request is likely to already have been met.

There are also a few things that you might like to consider when you are writing an Opponents Wanted post.

  • Are you wanting to play by email (pbem) or live play on the VASL server?
  • Do you have a particular scenario or two in mind? A particular theatre?
  • How quickly do you send out logs? If playing by email, are you looking for someone who'll send you one log a day on average? Or a more laid back pace with just several logs a week?
  • If playing by live VASL, how many sessions of play would you like a week and what days or times suit you best?
  • Are you a new player wanting to play either another new player or a more experienced player? An experienced player wanting someone similar, or willing to teach a new player? Something in between? Don't really mind?
We recommend to put your location in the subject title so that if people are browsing the forum or doing a search by city they will spot your request straightaway.
