the problem is that masks fog for the most part. and if they don't fog, they often collect water on the outside of the lens and obscure visibility that way.

I don't mind playing in the rain, but i would play in any weather personally.

Well the weather man said 80% chance of rain/drizzle...not a bit today though until an hour after all the air was out and paint was gone, too funny, gear up for a rainy day and it was just water and mud puddles which made running a funny sight sometimes! loved reading all the replys wow some of that scenario play sounds incredible!!!

I'll have to remember all the advice particularly the covering the port holes on the barrel : )

All in all we had 4 great games today with 18 players.

And as far a snow goes I think it would be fun but too cold becomes problematic for my gun running CO2, the orings tend to shrink too causing seemingly crazy out of nowhere leaks : /

but fog whoa that would be too cool!!!

as stated earlier it just turned out to be a really nice sun shiny day of paintball!!! Had a blast.

I've played in the rain quite a bit, and will do it if needed.

The worst story I have was at Skirmish in October of 2006. It was raining so bad, that it was coming down sideways. It rained all day, and when the sun went down, it turned to hail. Talk about suckage.
Coming soon.

I love the occasional summer rain... really changes up the game, and only the good people stick around

...otherwise, meh, I had my 3 years of playing hail/sleet/flood... its not worth getting sick.

I have not had the opportunity to play in the rain yet (though I do manage to play in its after effects... mud anyone?)... But I normally enjoy rain to begin with so I wouldn't see why it would dampen my fun.

most memorable game i played in the rain was a d-day senario, with me and my buddy blazing hell down the field to the objective cause very few ventured out into the rain. lesson i learned from my friend: water proof boots work both ways.

I have played in the drizzle and the full out downpours. Middle of summer and just back a few days ago. Summer it's not too bad, but when you are playing in dark woods and the rain collects on your lense you tend to lose shapes behind dark bunkers. CO2 puffs often give away the players which adds an interesting surprise.

Porting is a no-no and can end with you feeling frustrated. Keep your paint dry and you can end up having a good day. I agree with as many towels that you can get, it helps.

Playing a few days ago, 4 vs. 4, I was able to flank the entire other team, but was a waste of paint due to not covering my porting. Tried sniping and that was useless as the balls curved left and right, but they couldn't see so I still had the advantage.
Aim for anything that is visible, most of my shots are either leg, elbow or head... that is if you see me first.

I like to play the day after it has rained lightly and the grass is still damp (but the ground is mostly dry) because you can get some wicked length on slides/dives. Also, playing the day after usually doesn't have the thick humidity in the summer that a day of light rain normally would have. :)

At my favorite field there is a field that is set on a gradual hill w/ a couple of forts and lots of bunkers and it's sooooooooooo fun to superman/baseball slide down to the bottom when it's damp. :P So ready for warm weather....

A video with some good rain game shots...if you look you can see the wind in the trees & flooded field. I wasnt there when this was filmed, but I have played this field in similar conditions. I actually saw someone lose a shoe in the mud...like LOST it, didnt get it back kinda lost.
Most of the playing area has enough ground cover & drainage to avoid flooding, but the back 3rd of the field can get a few feet of water in a bad storm.

Prefer the nice weather, but if it's raining it's not really gonna stop me from playing.

I played a game yesterday in the rain. Honestly I'm not too fond of rainy games but I dont mind. Yesterday I keep getting water in my barrel and balls were busting in it so my accuracy was shot..ha..shot..ehem nevermind...anyway if you add some fog it does become quite an epic experience. Fortunatly thats what saved it for me yesterday.
