What of the few of us who prefer to be attached to a team, but works completely unattached and move on our own accord. Any true stalker or rogue who has played on a large natural field with teams ranging from small to large knows just what I am saying. It only takes one skilled player to overtake or completely disrupt a team in due time with he right environment...the ghosts; phantoms of paintball.

I do understand what you're saying, but that 'lone wolf' approach works better in recball than it does in scenario. Most rogues don't take a side; they go off with their own agenda and are considered outcast and often a threat by the side they abandoned. Besides, as a rogue, you need to be able to do any or all of the regular positions. If you're outmanned but not spotted, you act as a sniper. If you're outmanned and spotted, you act as a Hammer (or as Jesse Owens, depending on how outmanned you are). You become a generalist.

There aren't any specific equipment, tactics, or methodologies to being a rogue, which is why I don't see it being much of a SO position. But that's just my 2˘.
Whether or not you support a war, support your troops, both past and present. Remember, they may not agree with the war either, but they're still out there, voluntarily risking everything for us. The least we can do is be grateful.

When I went to my first scenario game last month I pretty much did play as a rogue player. I was part of a team but when I got out on the field, I either found a few guys to help me out with the mission I wanted to do, or if no one wanted to come I just did it on my own. Going rogue is ALOT harder than it sounds, there's always enemy around you, you don't have any back up, and most of the time you are doing reconnasince, atleast that's what I did alot of. But it can be helpful, take for instance, I went rogue and found out that the enemy had a weak flank on their right side. So I reported it back to our commander, and he decided to send a small team out to take their base. And guess which flank we used, that's right we used the enemies right flank, and we took their base. If you know how to do it well it's a good way to play, just don't expect to shoot at every enemy you see, most of the time you have to hide from them, which isn't alot of fun in the summer when you've got every bug imaginable crawling on you.

It would not be worth it unless it were insane difficult. Going rogue is by far my favorite position
unless I am commanding a small team of my own doing essentially the same thing. Though commanders are not always happy that we are doing it in my experience, though never been told not to haha. Become far to useful of an asset. If just beginning being a ghost has no true purpose being that it takes experience to move in and out of enemy lines unscathed. Most just get themselves killed shooting at everything that moves including friendlies being that they are jumpy and do not have the required patience. Gives us a bad rep as an ineffective unit. Not playing right unless your down and dirty and have discovered a new species of insect.

This is the worst irony of all. Every day when I go alone to the local field, I try my best to quickly make new friends and make some kind of team. Otherwise, it's everyone for themselves, and maybe with their friends that they brought along. This is why so many woodsball players hate when speedball players on the same team show up. They have a bond and they know what they are doing.

Rougue is good....as long as it is not everyone.

Being a rogue is great for when it works. I can't help but look at this from the point of a commander who has someone on his team state that they are going to go off on their own to be a "rogue". If I were that commander I would have to rethink my whole game and, for practicality's sake, write off that player because, even if he does pull his weight and survives, I still can not call on him when the rest of the team gets into a situation where I could use an extra man.

I am not at all trying to flame you because I realize that to pull this whole "rogue" thing off you would have to be way more skilled than I am on a paintball field. My primary thought is that a dagger player who is moving upfield stealthily enough will have the same chances to come across vital information and because he has a squad backing him up can usually relay that to the rest of the team in half the time. It seems to me to be more of a position used to get away from the responsibilities of doing what is best for the team instead of what will get you the most glory.

If you happen to play better on your own than with a team backing you up then congrats. I, personally, would not want a person playing "rogue" on my team.

it sounds a lot to me like an ambush sniper that moves... :P i like to do that in pairs though its a lot harder to get bogged down with cover fire.
