Well jackrock it has been my experiance that speedball players that step into the woods for the most part get destroyed out there. and the same thing goes for woodsballers that go onto speedball coureses. My team of dudes calls me the tourny player killer.


phew...then the speedballers up there need lots of practice then, it's quite opposite down here in texas, ask anyone at tactical paintball, and they'll tell you straight up, that speedballers, wearing bright colored schemes, like me of team abysmal x, and trail of team delerium, are widely feared across the woodland terrains

any good and great player with a vast wealth of knowledge and experience, can utilize anykind of marker, and any kind of clothes and get away with victory
for one, we attend scenario games the way we are
just because we're wearing our distinguished colors, representing, doesn't mean we'll be "destroyed" because of it
quite frankly, i can take comfort in the fact, thus far, i've nevered been "owned" by any woodsballers, except those like me whom switch back and forth between ,woodsball, speedball, stock class, and xball, for we are experienced in all forms and art of paintball



I'm gonna have to agree with DZ on this one. I've seen "speedballers' dominate time and time and time again. That is, until the woodsball teams finally started realizing that they needed to take lessons from these guys. Combining woodsball patience and strategy with speedball firefight tactics, they began to turn the tide fairly quickly.

There's a reason I walk on to the speedball field several times a year. Course, I do it in full camo with a vest. The refs go "HUH?!" :laugh:

yeah, we really started playing as a unit immediately, we had to. Now, when we go to the woods, we are playing and moving up like we would in speedball but on a larger scale. The 50 is no longer a dorito but a large boulder, tree, or log. We all know what we need to do and were everyone should be. It is a lot more fun now.

I was wondering when someone from delta was going to come in.

I mainly play woodsball. But Ive played a little speedball as well. And everytime I walk out on my personal feild against the local speedballers I get my butt handed to me. (Some of thisis they have been playing longer)

Not alot of people around here where bright colored jerseys, but they dont htink twice about walking out in a white T shirt. Just because there easily spotted doesnt mean there easily shot. Its there aggressivness that more often the not wins them the battle. They move up and get in your face. alot of times they can sling there own suppression fire, and walk right up to you. That is a valuable edge.

In my experience both from reffing and from playing, speedballer or woodsballer, its the players, key is playerS, that win it. I play on a scenario team, but to practice more we play indoor at least every couple weeks, what happens is you get good at snapping and moving from bunker to bunker quickly, combine that with flanking ideas and team unity on the field and you end up with an nearly unstoppable force (we're good but not perfect). Best thing is when all my guys are together and we play a few of the fields at High Velocity on Long Island(where I ref) and players are wondering how we got behind them or how did we seem like we were everywhere at once, we know how to spread and communicate well, and we are VERY, VERY agressive. Camo is not the end all/be all either, bright guns and bright jerseys aren't what eliminates players; no matter what you're wearing if you're out in open then you're going to be seen, if you're moving bunker to bunker then it doesn't matter what you're wearing you have most of your body blocked anyway.

Hay guys this idea i had sort of poped into my the other night, cause i have never played against a really good speedball team. The only decent palyer that i have seen that plays woodsball with a tourny marker is a teamate of mine. I do enjoy playing both types of paintball.

Why should it matter what a player wears?

Most folks that try to apply military tactics to paintball simply fail. Military tactics for the most part have no place in pb... the distances are off, the ballistics are shot... Half the fun I have playing in FL is wiping the floor with the Marines I play with.

Sorry, but not all speedballers "waste" their paint. What about the ones that happen to play speedball with stock class pumps?

And why doesn't it make sense to wear bright colours in the woods? Sure it's a little easier to hide, but what if that isn't their style? There's no real reason to buy and wear camo in the woods if you're not going to try and hide with it. If they already have speedball clothes, why should they buy a camo set just for woods use? I think that is the part that doesn't make sense.

-Z3R0



So i guess going by that logic it would be perfectly normal for a player to show up to a speedball game in a ghille suit?

Its a free country people can wear what they like. But speedball gear in the woods is lame imo.

Essentially, because speedball teams don't rely on stealth. They rely on aggression.

Let me ask you this: who wins more often when you have woodsballers and speedballers going head to head? It's been my experience that unless the woodsball team was agressive, the speedballers tend to mop up pretty fast.



i think thats because the Speedball players work together as a team more than the average woodsball player. put a skilled woodsball team against a skilled speedball team and it could go either way.

At larger games Stealth is less of an issue , alot of the time the liv=nes stabilize and there is very little sneaking around.

This argument is alot like the domestic car vs ricer war. its just two different styles. and yeah on average the ricers are usually all slow no go. putiing a coffe can on your exaust doesnt make you fast, wearing bmx gear doesnt make you invincible, its just different styles of play. id personally rather be dead then wear speedball gear in scenario or woodsball. But some people are into it.

i like shooting speedball players in the woods maybee ill take a pic when i shoot Foote @ Russian front hahahah :dodgy:

thats only because they dont adapt there tactics for the sport. i tell military personel that i play with that no matter the distance "you have to think CQB" basicly every thing we do in woodsball can be translated in military form but at a much closer distance. once they figure that out the tactics tought by the military carries over into woodsball very well. i myself use alot of the training i resieved in the Army, just adjusted for woodsball. now speedball on the other hand is a completely different story.

Actually, since the field I play at has a decent mix of woods and speedball players, we generally play both during a day.

Thus, you WILL see someone in a ghillie suit on the speedball field. It's like a tree hopped up and started running around. Much fun is had by all watching.

Either way, if you're playing aggressive and not wanting to hide in the first place, it doesn't matter what you wear in Woodsball.

If they want to wear Ghillie on an airball field, sure, why not? It might not be the best choice but there's nothing wrong with it. It might hinder movement a little compared to a jersey or even plain old BDU's, but there's nothing wrong with it. I guess you were trying to get a different response from me, though.

And you're right, it is a free country. Which is basically my point. Wear what you want, it doesn't matter. I don't see how it's lame to wear speedball gear in the woods. You might stick out and have a little trouble hiding, but if that's what you have and what you're comfortable with, why not wear it?
