In medevil arms and armour, a basilard was a long-bladed, double edged dagger that was worn with ordinary clothing.

So, in that spirit, here is my position idea...

I was playing a game last saturday in where myself and three others managed to backdoor the entire enemy army. Realizing the potential for mayhem, we got to the back right corner of the field, where we split into a staggered line and ran foreward at an angle, until we reached the center of the field. The attack left almost 30 bad guys in the respawn point and made the enemy general become extreamly defensive (he didn't attack until the final battle).

Name: Basilard
Arment: light gun, paint grenades, and smoke bombs
Job: Get behind the enemy lines and cause havoc

The ideal way for this to work is to send a three man crew sprinting along the tapeline to get to the back. This would involve both speed and stealth. Then, conduct a fast, fighting drive back tword your own lines. Here the smoke and paint grenades would come into their own to add to the havoc. Never stop moving in some way. When you get back to your base, arm up and go out again!

I will continue to refine and work on this method, but in the meantime I would love to hear any ideas or comments!

The name just sounds too much like an MMORPG, but the play idea sounds really cool B)

Needs more work but a player dedicated to creating diversions and confusion could be handy.

I like that idea. It seems to be what I do, but I don't have the paint grenades. Good job posting this up!

It is a creative idea and chaos causing is a blast but I can't say I am 100% behind this one. The basic positions that SO has made popular are just that. . . basic. Paintball doesn't need complex positions to make it fun. The positions are more of guidelines and a visual reminder of where you want to focus your style of play. To take those basics and make them more complex and create all these detailed over-specific hybrid sub-positions and name them after fancy blades is overkill.

To be honest it sounds to me like a small squad of 3 independent daggers who focus on using their play style to confuse more than any other single objective. I don't mean to sound so negative but the only position I would even consider adding is the tank hunter because their play style is completely different from the other positions.

(that and I am just waiting for someone to turn the letter "i" in Basilard sideways and combine it with the "l". Seriously, I know I can't be the only one thinking it.)
