People play pump so they have an excuse for why they suck so bad :D

haha i bet most pump players could own your easily >.<

And thats the attitude I hate about pump players. The "I play pump so I'm automatically better than everyone else" attitude. Have you ever seen BAGELS play? I'm going to assume that you haven't. So pretty much your basing your decision on the fact that they play pump and he doesn't. Hate to tell you but playing pump doesn't make you the best player in the world.

If I offended anyone by this post get over it. I know most pump players don't have this attitude but a lot do.

Heck, I've been playing almost exclusively pump for the last couple of months (not that often) and I still suck. But I have fun. And that's the point.

listen to this guy. his words should be seared into your brains.

forget about your kill to dath ratio.
forget about your maximum BPS.
forget about your accuracy ratio.
forget about low profile vs high profile.
forget about what make your marker is.
forget about how much money is in your barrel.
forget about the best paintball
forget about which is better Grills or E-vents
forget about company's
forget about how many headshots you got today.
forget about how often you get to play

Go play paintball and have fun.

Good point Eskimo.

I hate to say it, but pump players get on my nerves at times. It's not the fact that they use a pump that gets me, it's the mentality of the player. I'm not saying all you pumpers out there do this, but from my experience pump players act like they're so much better than players that use electric markers. They give people crap like, "you're not good, you rely solely on firepower for kills." People like that need a smack to the jaw. They act like they're so much better than players with electros, but yet they're taken out in about a 15 second firefight. Another thing that frustrates me about pump players I meet is that when they are taken out by anyone, they use the same excuse everytime, "It's because I'm using a pump." Here's a solution, use the pump for your stock class games, and use a rental gun so you don't have anything to whine about.

Don't take what I've said in the wrong way, one of my best friends plays with a pump but he's a good sport and a nice guy. I'm not saying all pump players are obnoxious, but many of the ones I've seen are.

Some pump players at my local field are really mean and think that they are the best and that there are no real pump players except for them. But that doesn't stop me from playing pump.

I can safely say I am a humble pump player. And I don't think that I am that good, mediocre at best. I play rec ball and I have forgotten my KDR lately because I stopped caring.

I will say all of the people that say pump isn't a disadvantage and then there will be the people that don't play pump that say it is. Well the pumping part isn't for me I do it naturally with out thinking. Its just the 10balls in my tube that hinders me. And no I won't do it with a semi.

And the proof that people play pump because its the new "AGG" or whatever is that there are a few people talking about how they are a pumper and can do all this and either just bought one and haven't even played with it yet or haven't even bought one yet.

-keep it :mellow:

This

Let me edit that to say, I don't hate pumps, or pump players. Personally I won't play pump, nor will I use it to 'improve my skills' because I prefer to practice how I play- and hacking off the not-insignificant amounts of weight from my marker won't help me in the long run. But I have no problem with people that prefer to play with pumps or anything. I do hate the attitude many pump players (even some here) seem to have where, just by dint of the fact that they play pump, they are better players. It's more amusing when it's both something to hide behind ("well, of course you beat me, I'm using a pump!") and something to insult you with ("haha you just got beaten by a pump!"). Note that by amusing I mean agitating- it's like dealing with tippmann fanbois. actually, I figure both tippman fanbois and elitist pumpers are equally as bad.

We ran to the sounds of the thunder.
We danced among the lightning bolts,
and tore the world asunder.

Think the thing most people are missing is its not the playing pump that makes you dislike the person, its just the person thats playing pump. I garentee you they would have the same mentality if they played with a semi. Half the problems out there come from a persons personality and those around that influence that personality.

Aloha, Doug

agreed. I have been playing pump for years, and exclusively pump for quite some times now. I still suck more than a hoover on High speed. I get eliminated far more than i get people out. But like Doug, i just play to have fun.

I don't care about my "kill count" or "mowing muppets" or "showing them." i just play cause i enjoy it and it takes my mind off my outside life. I couldn't care less if i get 1 elimantion a game, 1 all day, or 15 in a game, it doesn't matter to me. As soon as i get one elimnation in the day, that's all i am counting to, after that, i don't bother keeping track. I don't log my play log on the brigades, i don't care if i have 1,000 to 1 ratio or a 1 to 1,000 ratio. I just want to play and enjoy myself.

I stopped having the winning = everything menatlity many years ago. Now if i do something, it's just cause i enjoy it and that's it. I don't play anything to win at all costs, i just play to have fun and have some funny stories to share after with my comrades. :laugh:

And i agree about pump being the new agg and some guys sounding like the tippy fanboys. It is VERY annoying; but like was said, they would brag that way if they bought a new electro, a mech, or a pump. They are just the type of people that "have to be the best at everything" no matter what it is they ar doing. Either way, they'd be bragging how they "own people", just sucks that now they are in the pump field, making us look bad. :(

Why I'm becoming a pump hater:

Q: I'm trying to decide between an Ego or a Cyborg which one should I get?

A#1: Yuck batteries!!!
A#2: Buy a pump and save money on paint.
A#3: Pump makes you a better player!
A#4: Playing pump cures male pattern baldness
A#5: You should get a pump because a bunch of people you don't know said to buy a pump.
