Welcome to the forum, man. This is a good idea for a thread but it has been way discussed before and no one agreed on anything. I mean, there is not alot of info to base the descision on. Are we talking a newb, player? A 120 pound Hammer? A 5' 9' 340 pound sniper? This is too broad.


I fear no position, never have. But I have been wary of many players in those "positions".


Sorry, I couldn't, and didn't, vote...

The only people i have ever "feared" on the PB fields is the 30+ year old guy in tattered jeans, a t-shirt, and rockin an old pump older than most people on this forum. Then i am in deep fear. Cause i know no matter how hard i try to follow this guy, he will be a ghost within 20 seconds of the games starting. He has been playing longer than i have walked and is pretty much at the point where he just doesn't care about being flashy or the newest toys, he just wants to have fun.

I agree with you Legato. However the guy I do not want to face off against at my field is the 50+ man toting an old school 'cocker with an old school remote. He is not as quick as he once was. However he disappears with 20 seconds of game on.

Amen.

Thats who I was thinking of when I voted. Both the Old gun wearing an old dark green jumpsuit in his mat black pump and the t-shirt and jeans old cocker with remote with a bumb knee. The guy with the cockertaught me years ago when I was a member of Bound by Honor, not to get tunnel vision or someone like him will be shooting you in the back.
Paintball is a game. Win or lose you still need to wash your camo. Winners just use less soap.

It's troof. Whenever I have the time to plan and get stuff together beforehand and show up all decked-out, I'm just another guy. If I've got about 10 minutes and all I can grab is my PMI-1, harness 'o tubes and some old green cargo pants, I scare the crap out of...well, basically everybody.

Fear the pumpers, for we have more balls then you. And, also, simultaneously fewer balls. But we know how to use those balls. Both kinds.

In my own experience (which is very little actual game time), I think people tend to be intimidated by two possible things:

1) a guy (or a girl) who will disappear within 20 seconds of the game starting (which no one actually did), or

2) big, loud, good-shooting guns (Hammers)

I could say very little for anything else.

I wouldn't say I fear this type of individual, but rather that I respect his abilities and must be very wary.

In that regard, I never judge a player by the gear he's carrying (unless it's a pump) or what he's wearing. I must see him play first. That said, if someone tells me they're a particular position, that really doesn't mean anything to me until I see how they move and react on the field.

Anyone with homemade weaponry (I am so conceited). Many a time people have come onto the field and seen my stuff and have been like "Zomg! I'm gonna get shot with that...thing?"

I can't say that I have ever feared anyone I met at the field, though some players have certainly gained my respect due to their their exceptional skills.

If I were to fear anyone, it would probably be myself. I believe that my own mistakes have caused me to be eliminated more often than any other factor. Usually when someone makes a good move and scores a hit against me, my hindsight informs me that I created the opportunity for the other player by using poor tactics such as popping out of the same place twice or not switching bunkers. Too bad that crystal-clear hindsight hasn't become foresight.

I hope I get a chance to play against an old-school pumper. So far, the only pump I have ever seen in person is the one that I own.
