All these props,demo,medic,tank,helo, and character cards are suppose to add an extra element to the game of paintball not be the game……..REMEMBER THE GAME…….. Tip Out………………..
What you are describing sounds like a Big Game (no props, no Role Players, no vehicles) not a Scenario Game. Just have two big teams and they go at it in the woods for the weekend. There are people that want a bigger challenge than that.
To defend his case, it gets ridiculous when the game is defined by role players and special equipment. It gets old quick when you have to scream TANK! every couple minutes. It gets really annoying when you are required to use a role player for a mission, only to find out that the few players with the cards are not around or just not interested. There are people who grab role playing cards and don't use them, which sometimes prevents missions from ever happening. I remember one guy snatching a Demo card, yet not once in the game did I see him with a LAW or a satchel in his hand.
Roles are still great and I love them, but if their use is poorly managed, they have the potential to screw the game.
