Truthfully though the positions really don't mean a whole lot. They are just differant terms for the old fashioned Front, Mid, and Back players. Even then the player positions are still guidelines. The real key to being a successful player is to be versatile on the field. You just have to learn when to make the moves that will win the game. The only way to learn when to make those moves is to play.

the positions created by specops are a base title used to seperate the type of player you are. yes, they also use it as a marketing gimmick to attract new and sometimes expireinced players to specific set-ups to make sales. but, just because you have an a-5 with response trigger dpesnt limit you to say "Dagger" or "Sabre". Play how you like, and if one of those "positions" falls onto you rather than visa versa, then so be it, but you have learned that its not always about the gimmick, its just about the game.

Just get out and play. Then just play naturally. Some people naturally are more of a suppressive fire player, while others do more of the rushing. Play how you want.
I play a few different ways, depending on the event I'm at. Normally, I play limited paint/conservative on the paint and do a mix of firing paint and moving up the field. During major events, I carry more paint and go heavy because there's just more people to shoot and I want the capability to stay out in the field longer.

ZOMG N00b! H3 can 0n7Y PlAy Br0Ad5w0arD with teh R/T a5!!!one!!eleven!!
Just kidding of course. Position depends on the player, not the marker. And I'd like to point out that not all woodsballers are on SO, so when you go to a field as a walk-on you'll most likely be divided into either defense, or thrown into one of multiple attack squads. When you engage, you'll either supress or flank. It's not rocket science and the marker doesn't matter, although that R/T will probably convince your team that you will be good as a supressor.
