So spring is *FINALLY* coming, it's still cold but at least we can see grass on the lawns. So this brings me to wanting to know what kind of programming you guys wanna see in the future.

I've already got slated "Speedballers Guide to Woodsball", that'll be a nice long series. But what I'd like to know is what else? Keep in mind that there's easily 100+ videos I've done in the past covering a LOT of things, but I still want to know what's missing or what you'd like to see covered. And before you suggest it, product reviews aren't going to happen. Unless companies get the idea to send me stuff for free (which they won't) that's not gonna happen.

So, what say you all?

Maybe you have done this already... But, a video that shows players what they "should" be paying attention to on the field would help players. I have found that when I shoot someone out, instead of just moving on to the next target. I watch that player. Almost always they will give away the position of other players that I had no idea were there... They look in their direction, or walk toward them. Something. It is very common, and has saved me many times when playing woodsball. Because dead men can't talk, but they sure say a lot with their actions and movements! I typically watch them walk all the way back into their camp if possible. And typically I can then attack their camp as I know where the "targets" are after watching the dead man give them away.

Also discuss the issue that most people have with hitting a moving target. I find many times guys stop when rushing, to "hide" behind a tree that is way too small... When if they just kept going they might capture the flag, as shooting a moving target with paint is not easy for the rookies of the sport.

I video all my games, with a helmet cam/ and now a gun cam as well. It really shows what I am doing wrong as I can go back and see what caused my elimination. This focus on your gameplay is critical in becoming a better player. and with the cost of video equipment so cheap today it is worth getting some type of recording device.

I have heard good things about these.

Do some newbie chats. Find a new player before a day of play, do a short interview with him/her about their expectations of the game. Maybe follow them around on the field, then interview them again and see what they did and didn't like, problems they had, best part of they day.... Something like this could shed a lot of light on what we can do to make the game a better draw for new players.

That's brilliant Puz, I like that a lot. I love talking to brand new & young players before & after games, there is almost always a big bit of apprehension heading in, but at the end of the day they are usually smiling ear to ear with all kinds of stories & ideas/thoughts for next time.

to expand on slinks idea: the behind the scenes stuff. where you may not play with it, but still important. like water, food, general overview.

If it's a GOOD party like a rockstar would have, it's NOT PG-13.
