when i was a noob, i thought all paintballs were created equal...
but then my aunt gave me all of her paintballs which consisted of 3 bags of Xball Bronze and a bag of some really old paint.
i wasn't a noob for long since i did tons of research with one of my best friends, the internet
but i have come a long way even though it has only been about a year now, lets just say that tygers "tip clips" have become instilled into my head. he even convinced me that there are no snipers in paintball.
i remember my first game, i had my tippmann 98 custom for 3 weeks [got it for christmas] and i was dying to use it in my first game of paintball. we played an outlaw match at my friends house. my friend had two brothers that wanted to play, and we invited my brother and three other kids who actually have played before. one the of the experienced players was supposed to bring his extra goggles, so that we can all play. unfortunately, we ended up with 4 pairs of goggles and 8 players. so we decided to have just a 2 on 2 tournament. one mistake we made was put the most experienced players on one team. i had the other experienced player on my team. the first match was my team vs. my brother and my friend. right at the beginning of the match my teammate ran out of co2. so it was just me. i quickly ran up the left flank and i shot out my friend who tried to flank me. then it was just me and my twin brother. i quickly switched to the other side of the field and tried to come behind him. it worked but all of a sudden my friend starts shooting at me. i give away my position to yell,
he responded with, "i thought we had two lives."
so now my brother turns around and starts shooting at me. started to snap shoot from behind the big tree i was behind. like a true noob, i became predictable and came out the same side each time. this led to me being gogged. i was furious that my friend didn't know the rules and made me give away my position.
losing this game made my team drop out of the tournament, which sucked as i set the whole thing up and i got to play only once.
wow that was alot the write, maybe i'll start a journal to record my mistakes...
