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.


that ones actually true.....



but honestly, the only time ive ever seen something like that is when someone posted:

"hmm....i dont know what to get, i have $250 and i want a nice set-up"

but i have never seen this when someone asks between two non-pump markers.....but if you could prove me wrong ide love to see it...

I give huge props to those who play and are good at playing pump. I find it difficult to do and takes a good amount of skill. I will never bash a pump player. Not saying I'll ever become one either, though.

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.

Umm ya I wasn't saying that in a good way. I use an electro. And think pumps are way overrated.

...have you even played with a pump for a significant amount of time in order to form your opinion....theres a reason people rant and rave about pumps....because they are FAR more exciting to use than a semi....and before you go off....yes i do play equally with both of them...

It seems that all the staffers are either Mag or pumpers. So it's hard to say we hate pumps.

I do hate when somebody asks which marker Ego or DM, then somebody says get a pump. THat's getting old.

I disagree. I find pump play boring and slow, compared to semi play.

and i know you didn't mean the agg of woodsball in a good way. I was agreeing.

. it aint that great playing pump i like having the option of throwing alot of paint down the feild if i want to

i played pump speedball before when i went on a vacation there where a bunch of pumpers at a feild and the let me use one of there pump guns it wasnt that fast paced the only good thing was i was used to runing through strings of 13.3 bps so i moved up pretty quickly.

Yep. Sure have. They weren't good pumps but they were pumps none the less. I just didn't think it was as fun to have one or 2 balls flying at you every second. Or having to break aim after every shot. I think semi is FAR more exciting. And I'm tired of people saying to get a pump when someone comes on and asks what kind of electro to get.

This is why I play pump, so I can keep my luscious locks. :P

I haven't seen many comments like that, but I would be fairly irritated if I did.

I agree with legato, yea some pump players think that pumps are superior, but tippmann fanboys think that the x7 is the greatest gun ever made, and agglets think that you arn't good unless you have an ion with atleast $300 worth of upgrades in it. its a type of person, not the gun they use.

Amen.

But, you're talking about playing with only pumpers. I play pump against semis and I've played against pumpers before and honestly I'd rather play against semis. It's much more fun. If every one used a pump I think it'd be kinda boring.

Well, pumps have kinda taken a back seat with me now since I discovered the wonderful world of 'mags. :huh: Anyway, imo, ever since pumps hit the mainstream there have been far too many so-called-pumpers being buttocks and giving every one else a bad rep. So, let bigons be bigons (whatever bigon are) and let's get on with paintball...er...I mean life.
