I have been playing paintball for a few years and recently started reffing for my local field. I was wondering if anyone else who refs has noticed a change in their game play since they started reffing.

My game has gone to a higher level since reffing. I believe one reason for this, and this is something even none refs can do, is that as I watch the game I notice others who have the same playing style I do and learn from their eleminations how to better my play.

Yes, I ref. and play too. Also look at the mistakes that get players taged out as well.

There are a couple of things that come into play when you begin Refing

First- You do get a far greater opportunity to see the field and how it works or doesn’t work as you see players all bring different approaches and styles to dealing with a constant…the field. You really do pick up subtle nuances to how to work the field better yourself.

You also are a “REF” and I believe, weather you realize it or not, you begin playing in a more “fair” manner. I am not saying that you cheated before and now you stopped, what I mean is that you realize the things that make calling a game difficult for a Ref and you begin sorting those things out of your play style.

I will tell you that the opposite is also true for some. I know Ref’s that actually cheat more now as players than they did before being trained as a Ref. They have taken what they learned about the position and used it to inappositely benefit their personal game.
Death is just a passage...so bring more paint!!!

Yes, I look at what caused all the players that I can note to be tagged out. I also don't "cheat" (I notice my hits more for some reason) as much in a game. One thing that I have found very interesting is that even when I go to other fields to play my game has gone up to a higher level.
