ok ive been a commander/medium rifleman for close to a year. wat ive found in teams is dont look for personalities that mix well. the last thing you need is your sniper and your gunner duking it outon the feild "true story". make sure ur team can get along well that way you ALL have more fun.

and really i dont think it matters to much on pisitions. at the moment my team is made up of me 4 "sabres" and a sniper who in some games can also act as our gunner

sorry i didnt mean dont look for personalities that go well i meant look for personalities that go well...

lol

For your team you can use all the players you can get. Just make sure they are willing to follow orders, are willing to go paintballing often, and are willing to learn.

The only position you should limit is snipers..... There's no reason to have a team full of snipers...

With my team we just got a few friends together and started playing. People fell into the positions as they found their strengths and needs of the team, and as of now we have me, a commanding saber, a dagger, and a saber/broadsword/sniper/dagger depending on the needs and strategy. Also, don't expect everyone to necessarily stay in a position for good. People will switch around as they find where they play well and where they have the most fun, and also things may have to change as the needs of the team change depending on strategy and who shows up to play. So as for a number of people to have on a team, there is no good number. The more the merrier, if you get to many just form 2 units under the same team name. They can go to events individually or play in big games as a larger unit. As long as the positions required for the strategy are covered and everyone is having a good time, then all is well. You will find probably that you will have a few "core" players who are always there and ready to go, and who will probably fall into fairly permanent positions. Then there will be the rest of the team that comes and goes and changes around. You may want to keep the core players as the tournament team and the full team as open play and big game team.

I like what he had to say. I was going to post something similar, but my experience.

Designated marksman, and buddy. But those are only needed in scenario/big-game situations, on small fields they should be your hard flankers and advancing your line

Positions are overrated and mold the way people play in good and bad ways. I'm not bashing, I like the idea a lot. I think of the positions as a way to describe how people play almost, their playing style. I still call myself by positions but I find that I play all of them in the same game. What am I then a commadabreswordammerambusher?

the number of people you have on your team depends on how and where you play.
IF TIS WHORTH DOING ITS WHORTH OVER-DOING.
