Well, to be honest, I think the system is a little to easy.
I've been playing paint for a long time, prolly 1/2 the time of most pros who have 14+ years under their belts, but I've been doing it for a while. I've got a lot of game time under my belt, I'm no weekend warrior, but I didn't go back and list every game I've ever played. Hell I've had games where I was hit maybe 2 times the whole 2 days worth of playing, but I'm not going to list it because it was like a year or 2 ago. I guess some people just try and post up a lot of games they played in the "past". I don't know why they have rankings really. The honor system will always be broken.

Exactly, only reason I made it was to find local games, and peeps in TN. I'm also looking to start a team or join a team. I really could care less what it tells me I am.

Kinda to be expected, there are people who feel the need to be more than they actually are.
Good job on reviewing the pages and pruning out the deadwood.

Brigade has two awesome uses, the perks for using it a lot are just gravy. I like keeping track of my stats and putting my field notes out of my little green notebook and onto my page. And I also like using it to find local games that are coming up, if only people would put more up it would be awesome. Or if there were functionality for opting into walk-on games at local fields and announcing the opt-in to other players.

I look at the rank system as just a gimmick - kinda fun to play around with & an entertaining way to get some perks on my orders, but not important.
I do use my game log all the time, but its just for me...I dont think anyone else has ever even looked at it.

Yeah I was saddened to see that a vast majority of the officer ranks are fluffed. A lot of the higher ranks have 6 games played in one day, when a game day is pretty clearly defined as 8 hours or so of play. Basically, its to represent your entire outing, not each match on each field. I made another post somewhere stating that basically, if once a year, someone went through 100 officer brigade pages a day, they would be able to check and purge the entire officer corps inside of like 2 weeks, at least keeping that end of things honest. However, some of it simply needs to be better coded to prevent some of the misuse. Its not too hard to disallow multiple game entries for the same day.

Requirement for Commanding General "Commendation from Team Special Ops", yet I see no commendations for any of the commanding generals. Am I missing something?

I, for one, do look up peoples brigade pages to learn more about other players and to check for honesty. Yes, I also look at gear kits, pics, and play log. The Stuntman I have looked you up before and found that you are a credible and worth reading your posts. I'm just a curious person that way. :P It's a fun way to see what others have done. Yes, the ranks are meaningless but are still fun to watch.

No you're not missing anything. For the rank to be "real" the commendation is required.

It is VERY difficult to get that commendation.

I imagine it would be a matter of being where ever the person qualified to make that commendation was at that particular day to witness whatever deed you performed to earn it. I also imagine that there are a precious few who qualify to make that particular commendation, and those people would rarely be at a local field.

Sure, I could make a brigade page, but am I going to remember 20 years worth of games to record?
I could say I own over 60 markers, and have Generalled 14 scenario games with a record of 12:2, but how do you prove that? And what good does it do me to try and prove it?

I'll admit that a brigade page can help with your personal stats, if you have a need to keep track of such things but using it to achieve some kind of recognition is useless. Anyone can post anything in there, real or not.

Those stats I mentioned were real, I've been playing since 1988 and run a small museum of paintball. I've met most of the biggest names in the industry, but how do I prove that to a bunch of folks on the internet?

Pics?
Here's my daughter with a few people:

Does all that prove anything? Or pics that are not digital of me with Jerry Braun, Paul Fogal or Jim Iulo make a difference? Most players don't even know those names.

So in my opinion a brigade page is for you, yourself. Not to try and garner special points from people who don't affect your game.
Sorry about all this, I just got off on a rant.

Pirate Jim, nice video. I liked looking at all the different markers. The pictures aren't bad, but I prefer more paintball action. And, you are right, the brigade page is more of a personal domain than a public one. However, it is used both ways. I use it for showing off some of my markers to others as well as for me to keep personal stats on my playing. Everyone thinks I'm anal that way, alright, I admit it, I am! :blush: Since there is no "real" way to stop people from "how should I say 'embellishing'" oh, I mean lying about their stats all they are is for personal use really. When people fake their stats, they are just trying to look better than they are. :eck:

Thanks for taking the time out to post the video and the pictures. B) I appreciate it. Though, I only know of one person there. I have only been playing for 10 years, and half of that was in North Dakota, which 90% of the US think is in Canada. :D

I agree that the brigade page stats can easily be faked, I simply use it to look at stuff I've done not for "the rank".

First, why bother with a brigade page and a banner saying "check it out" in your sig and then hide it? That proves nothing.
Second, you are fourteen years old. I have paintballs older than you.


Pyrate Jim do you think you could take it a little easier on us young folk? Judging someone by their age is just as bad as judging people by there race, religion, or appearence.

For those who do not think that 6 games in one day is possible...(think ol skool airball, recball...etc...)you had better start looking into round robin big games. Ignorance of or lack of experience in regards to a 12 hour multi-game format with revolving teams and allegiances does not make it "shady"...travel to more fields that run more interesting formats.

Whether a games lasts 10 hours or 10 minutes, it is still a game and can be tracked anyway a player wants in his/her stats page. The stats page is for you...It will not impress anyone...other than your son or daughter or the kinda shaky kid down the street.

HAVE FUN!

The point system is not based on "per game" but based on "per day". I my self may have a double booked a day because I refereed for eight hours, left that field and went to an other field to play. If that is shady, then I will be happy to remove it. I do not want to cheat the system the same as, I don't like to cheat at paintball. I do make mistakes (everyone does) but I will apologize and correct them if I do.
