yeah thats what i was trying to point out...its really dumb to do the whole position thing...they really dont mean anything... I play X-ball...there are three psitions on the feild front, mid, and back. The Font guy is in the front basically spending the whole game on his belly getting shot at. the mid guy hangs out in a middle of the feild and trys to take the heat off the front guy. and the back guy hangs out in the back keeping the opposing teams' heads down.
I was really just poking fun at the whole thing........I am not a ubernube

I'm resisting the temptation to flame you hardcore, although you kinda deserve it. Why do you say Woodsballers are less talented? That's moronic stereotyping at best. Your argument has no weight to it whatsoever, as you list the three positions for X-Ball (Front, Mid, and Back) which require different gear loads and mind sets, then say X-Ballers have to be good at everything. The purpose of different positions in both variations of the general heading of paintball are the same- a light, fast guy to draw fire and run around (Dagger of Front), a middle ground guy who can cover most any job (Sabre or Mid), and a guy carrying a crap-load of paint that lays it heavy to keep the enemy's head down (Broadsword/Hammer or Back).
The other positions in Woodsball (Commander and Ambush sniper) are due to the fact that Woodsball games last longer then three minutes and require communication, and the fact it's pretty hard to set an ambush in a hundred yard long open field where you can see the other end. I guess you can have a commander in X-Ball, but it's not as necessary as it is in a longer game where you can't see the rest of the field.
