These are the ideas that I would like to see as positions. (Some have been suggested before. I am not going to take credit for your ideas, just thought these were cool.)

Sniper-spotter: This is a player that doesn't actually snipe, but covers the sniper. He may have a ghilly, any kind of marker (probably auto), and will sit about 10-15 feet away from the sniper. They would set up ambushes in the way that when the sniper fires, the spotter opens up as well, keeping the attention off of the sniper, who most likely couldn't hold up in a firefight on their own. This is a good tactic, and I've used it with our sniper before. (I'm a Broadsword.) I'd like to see what you guys have to say.

Grenadier: This does not mean he has to own a launcher like the HAVOC or Sceptre, but that he primarily specializes in the use of hand grenades. He probably carrys 4-6+ grenades and about four pods. He got an accurate throw, and could probably get a 'nade through a small window at 50 yards at any time (exaggeration.) If they do have a laucher, great. But this is not a requirement, only that they use excessive amounts of grenades compared to other players. This class is less likely to pass, but still works, I think.

These two are the less likely candidates. (Mostly for recognitions sake. Maybe make into awards for the Brigade page?)
Dual-Pistol Specialist: They use Dual Pistols in any situation as their primarys. They run around like they are gods and pop people in the back of the head because they could be more mobile thanks to having less equipment.

Pump Specialist: Pretty straightforward. They use pump over the rest of us. They deserve their pride at being better than us.

No one person plays like anyone else.
Please, I know that these could all somehow be incorperated into another position that already exists. However, the play styles and/or the loadouts are different in some way compared to what already exists. This is my reasoning. Now, for your opinions.

so you're suggesting everyone that plays pump is just overlooked and thrown into the pump-specialist position? Boy you must be pretty pump/paintball illiterate. The grenadier thing is a pretty bad idea as paint grenades aren't very useful. I'm not going to go into other ones and sorry If It sounds like I'm flaming but so many people post similar suggestions with no regards to if its been shot down before or simply wont work or if they're spamming they just want to say it themselves. . .

No, no. I mean there should be some type of recognition for Pump players on Brigade. I say this because I've tried Pump play and suck... really bad. So kudos to them.

Yeah, as I said in the first post, these ideas may have be said, and possibly shot down, but I like explaining the positions myself. The spotter position is the one position that I really like. I only say them if I think they could work.

As for nades... I don't know about you, but I've never missed with one and they've never failed me, so...

Spotters are a waste of a good player. Grenadier has already been done to death. Please use the search. Dual-pistols doesn't work that well to begin with-I've tried-and it would play like a Dagger if you got the hang of it. Pumpers aren't dumb enough to buy into the position stuff to begin with.

Another pointless post.

It is a good thing you had this disclaimer. I realize you were trying to condense the new positions you liked into one post but you have to understand that some of us have seen literally hundreds of these posts come up just with different wording. So please forgive us if we are a little curt with you. I hope this helps you to understand where we are coming from on this. We don't mean to flame but it is so hard when we see the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Once again thanks for understanding what is in your disclaimer. That puts you far above many of the other new position posters. It is good to not have to type that part myself.


Oh, one last thing. Play how you like and don't worry about how you or others may label your style. Play to have fun and to win. (but mostly to have fun.)

Thank you all. If any mods or admins come across this post, please close it. I tried to set this up accoirding to Puz's sticky, but it didn't work out the way I'd hoped. Either way, I've had my say.

Yeah, Playing for fun is the key. I'm kinda a Dagger or sniper depending on what setup I'm running. I'd like to be knowen as the "Sapper" with my Master mines But the dagger is good at that I guess.

This is why we need to have the "other" position. AKA, a self-entered position on the brigade. You could make up any position you want, make up a description, and even an icon to boot, and then we'd end this section altogether.

I would like to see a tank commander position, or demo expert. These would actually be pretty damn smart to add. :ninja:

You know, I forgot about this post, but I'm glad I found it again.

I.K.E., I like your idea. That would let people really express what their true style of play is, and I think it'd really cool for someone to make a position of their own.

Then again, it would suck to stop having the "interesting" conversations about everyone's "NEW AND IMPROVED" positions! :D

The only problem withg that is that it requires specific equipment (a radio.) These positions are not supposed to be influenced by "exotic" equipment. That is where most people make mistakes when planning a position.
