thign shave been chaotic here laely, sorry for the silence.

On a fun note, not even an hour up and 2 ups and 1 down on youtube, must mean I'm doing something right when people actually have the guts to dislike something.

Reminds me of a story I read on MCB - the guy had fashioned a big "camera" around "half" of a Phantom...made it REALLY hard to pump and stuff, not having a grip frame (or something)...

But he was wearing arm bands and stuff, started on one side with one of the teams...

Promptly walked up behind the other team with his "camera" and shot them in the back.

He was a legal "player", but now it has just made people paranoid of camera men...and guys with cameras typically don't want their gear shot....

So, what about legit players who get hit, walk to the side to watch, but don't feel like holding their arms up for 20 minutes straight while they do so? Lots of players in scenario games hold up their hands until they are clear of the area they got shot in, then put their hands down.

In small walk-on games, I like to watch from the side as well.... sometimes I get shot...repeatedly. It pisses me off (especially when the guy that did it is the one that I'd been trading shots with 5 minutes earlier and I haven't moved from my watching spot since) and it makes players reluctant to shoot at people that are standing around non-chalantly.

I once had another player walk ACROSS the centre of a map, in front of 3 of us, (pointing his marker at the ground)... then have him circle back around from the outside edge and "mercy" us. While it is "legal", it is taking advantage of people who could have lit him up, and I disagree with it, personally.

As a player I know the rules so if I don't keep my arm up I risk being shot again.

We know the rules and we know the tricks
If you shot me a minute ago, I walk away and then linger. It may be that at a scenario I've respawned by medic etc and am up to something - if I've gone out of site and come back
But repeatedly shooting someone who is hanging around isn't polite

*medics didn't exist in the scenarios I've played in*

I'd just feel like a dick if I shot some person walking down, presumably out, not playing, or "unarmed". So I don't, and sometimes I pay for it... but one day I might see a newbie pull that trick and then I'll just have to shoot every newbie I see... :P

Yeah, definitely a dirty trick! But you weren't breaking the rules. Its the other team's fault for being so unobservant. In the case of cdrink, i think its different. It's easy to confuse a player walking of the field. But he was actually talking to them!

Years ago, we were playing a big game (for my field) of around 40+ players, and almost everyone on my team was out, except for around 4 guys guarding my flag. Well, as you can imagine, there was this huge firefight going on at the flag, while the other team tried to get into the camp to capture our flag. We knew we were going down, but hey, maybe?...

So in the middle of this huge fire fight, this one guy walks into the camp RIGHT BETWEEN this firefight... He had no gun, and was just ambling along slowly towards the flag.

Everyone assumed he was out... But, his hand wasn't up...

he got within about 5 feet of the flag, and suddenly someone yelled. "shoot him, he is still in"!

But, it was too late, he walked over picked up the flag and ended the game! Without firing a shot... Turns out his gun ran out of air at the beginning of the game, so he just stayed back until the teams had wittled down to a small group and then took the walk of fame!

It was awesome... Probably will never work again... But, I saw it, and WISH I had a videocamera back then!

Know the rules for the field/game you're at. At the field I commonly play at you are supposed to get off the field when eliminated to prevent confusion. You are also supposed to have a barrel blocking device in place and at least on hand in the air until you get off the field. This means that anyone on the field without a BBD in place and a hand in the air is a legitimate target no matter how uninterested they seem to be in what is going on around them and I will treat them as such.


Your paintball gun is not the only "weapon" you take on the field . . .



. . . so is your brain.
-95% of people with a flatline think it makes the gun inaccurate; if you are the part of the other 5%, who take the time to sit down and tune it right, put this in your sig.
