Deadliest Paintball Player
Posted 09 May 2009 - 11:45 PM
If he rips my legs off, I'll bite him to death.
If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death.
And if he gouges my eyes out, I'll curse him from beyond the grave.

1.protective clothing for bounces,
3. shoots 25 bps, extremely accurate marker.
1. long range: marker with stock and flatline for distance, semi only.
2. medium range: grenades to go over bunkers

The tourney player would have his bright DYE pants and jersey on, NXE slider shorts and DYE knee pads, DYE I4 mask, an NXE pod pack, and proably a DM9, EGO09, Geo, bob long, or an Angel A1 fly, along with a dye rotor or empire prophrecy.
Both players would have been playing for the same amount of years, and both have an equal number of hours of game time.
In an all natural woodsball environment, heavily wooded, lots of fallen trees, thick brush, sticks and leaves, an average amount of sunlight and all the rest of an ideal woodsball game. The tourney player would most likely be the one to be on the hunt, whereas the woodsball player would have concealed himself in a good ambush position, proably along the tape so as not to be flanked. If the woodsball player managed to hit the tourney player when the tourney player enters the killzone, it would go to the woodsballer.
If he missed however, chances are the game would go to the tourney player, in which the game would turn into a snapshooting battle once the tourney player finds the woodsballer.

We may pretend they see each other across a open field. Tourney player attacks and the woodsball player hits the brush. Let the game begin.

They make green, black, and camo speedball gear.
I think the tourney player would win. He's got a lot more going for him. Marker wise, since the woods player will be using an a-5, or similar tippmann, there hasn't been much advancement in ergonomics, efficiency, etc. Tourney guns one up themselves almost every year, so they will always be better than a tippmann.
I'd add more, but I don't really feel like it.

Nicky, becuase he's actually crazy.. I have no doubt in my mind he is insane. actually, mentally insane.
I guess the tournament player would have a double trigger, ( now becuase this goes into types of fingers and stuff, lets say he's usuing a spring return trigger with a simple "C" shape.) the woodballer would have a double trigger also, although it's probaly more like a tippmann or a BT double trigger. not so much a double trigger as a long single trigger

and as some one great once said:
ok now my opinion..speedballers generally are more skilled than woodsballers for these reasons: they practice running, sliding, snapping, fast fingers, and all that good stuff...when released in the woods no matter how flashy they are they will still win 80 percent of the time, i speak from my experiance of course..

You have a medium Brush situation, no created cover. only trees and small brushes.
Now, assuming you have two players of the Exact skill level. think of yourself facing yourself.
in the Clothing.
The tourny player will have his slider shorts on, his pants and his jersey. While it does not give him the bonus in camoflauge the additional support from the hip protection, the knee padding and the ventalated legs keeps him cool, plus the jersey will have added for-arm protection and the lightwight mesh in between his arms and back will keep him flexible as well provide even more ventallation.
The woodsball player will have his camoflauge equipment ( for arguments sake, he will be wearing the avarage BDU) so, as a paintball player he also will be wearing slider shorts under his pants, but will not be supplemented by the hip and knee padding with the venting. so his legs will be less protected and might heat up a bit more, but he also has the advantage of camo-flauge. His shirt will also suffer the elbow and the mesh, but gains in camoflauge.
Now in the shoes
Tourny player will be wearing eather Soccer cleats, football cleats or golf cleats. all will providing a low ankle for flexibility and the short cleat will keep him very nimble both on the turf and the woods.
Woodsball player will be in Boots. Providing maximum ankle support for roll-overs and the increased arch supoort from the soal, although will have less flxibility and movment. ( water proofing not a factor)
The tournament player will have a lightwieght, small and compact marker. tank will be shouldered and the centerfeed hopper provides the ability to go from left to right handed without marker obstuction. the marker itself with paintballs only weighs a total of roughly 4 pounds.
the Woodsball player will have a medium built marker, was light to start, but the addition of a stock and various peices rose the general wieght to roughly 5 pounds.
Note: Both players have 68/4500 tanks. Both players are on semi-automatic only. both players have thier hopper plus 4 x140 pods.
The tournament player will have focused on his agility and form while playing, planning 3 bunkers ahead moves from tree to tree cover to cover, the tournament player has the advantage with a more compact marker, the player also has the advantage in snap-shooting and moving while shooting.
( teamwork and communication unless on a 1 vs 1)
the woodsball player will have the enviroment for the advantage. knowing he's both out gunned and fundamentally out-skilled, relies on the forest to cover his movments while trying to find the tournament player, his off-set hopper means he's going to try to play the right side of a bunker more often.
persoanlly, I think on a 1 vs 1 the tournament will win, Purly becuase if the woodsball player cannot eliminate him at the start he cannot let the tournament player behind cover, he will have a hard time snap-shooting out his opponent and when the tournament player moves from one tree to the next he knows his aiming is going to be much better then his.
"Speedball" gear is not necessarily brightly coloured, just like camoflauge isn't necessarily digital. And your assumption that speedball/tourney players "most of the time will spray and pray" is pathetically inaccurate.
