Well i've decided to leave sniping and put my e-grip to good use for a while. However im a little diffrent then the average sabre. Intead of when a fire fight starts i dont start to swap paint. I immediatly pull back and and start to flank and i open up a flank on a side. Am i more of a ghost flanker or a Sabre? I would say im a dagger but i really dont play aggresivley.

You are a paintball player. But, to answer your question, you're a flanker guy.

personally, id call you a paintballer. dont worry aboutthe position deal. even in the real armed forces, all units are riflemen at heart. thats what you are. you can have your specialties, but in the end, you are a paintballer.

but, to stay on topic, id say you were a sabre. but, if i was against you, id call you " The guy on the left/ right"

You can be whatever you want to be. If you want to be considered a Sabre then sure - I'll consider you a Sabre. However you play the game is up to you, but if you ask me the best players are the ones who don't classify themselves.

The folks above have it all right- don't limit your thinking by a name or position. Work on all the skills that make a paintball player great, not just those that a "Sabre" or "Dagger" would use. The best players can fill any spot on a field effectively if need be, regardless of the gun or gear they are carrying. I'd call you a player, player. :dodgy:

OH boy, another one of these threads.

Just go out there and play paintball. If you want to consider yourself a Sabre, the more power too you. But to the people on the other side, you are just someone on the other team. Go out there, have fun, and play paintball.

For that stile of play I would call it dagger. But feel free to adapt when the game needs it.

Isn't the definition of a Sabre "the player who does everything"? If so, aren't ALL paintball players Sabres?



Also, I think some of you folks are missing the point. People don't classify themselves by a position to limit their gameplay style, they do it because it's part of the fun in figuring out your paintball mindset, identity and natural abilities. You classify yourself by how you already predominantly play. You don't adjust your play style to fit the classification.

I've seen a few of these posts saying "don't classify yourself, just play" and I have to respond by saying that if people are playing, they're not worried about classification. Nobody hits the field chanting "I'm a Sabre. I'm a Sabre. I'm a Sabre" to themselves. They only talk about classification when they're on forums, talking with their friends, and thinking about paintball in general. It's part of the fun of the off-field hours. It keeps you juiced up and looking forward to the next day of play. Don't try to take that away. Encourage it.

Welcome to the forum Justus. Please keep in mind the date of the post in any thread as necro-posting is generally frowned upon. For example, this thread was 2 years without a post.

However, you did do right by actually posting coherent thoughts rather than the typical necro-posts of, "yes", "no" or some other truly pointless crap.

Yeah, I knew it was a necro post by the date. But it was still on the first page of the Sabre forum, which means it was a most recent topic of conversation in this section - even if "most recent" means two years ago. I typically don't necro post but, as you can see, in this case there was no other option. We either necro or start new (duplicate) topics and get told to use the search button.

Well, we're usually pretty good about not pulling out the search button. Generally speaking, unless it's a subject that's been beaten to death over and over or is in one of the "stickys"/FAQs nobody really mentions the search button, even if they've seen the subject before. I mean, it's paintball, and eventually you are going to cover every possible subject (well, outside of new products/fields/events, but you get my point).

Plus, sometimes the discussion can change with time. New products or tactics (or at least revisited ones) can often gain traction. For example, way back in the day some people tried to put out paintballs with stabilizing fins on them for better accuracy. They didn't really take off, and the idea went untested for a while. Then, Tiberius comes out with their "first strike" paintballs, which are basically the same idea in a new package. While they remain a novelty for now, they have turned up in more games and gained a lot more of a serious discussion than the last time the idea passed through.

People post so little to this forum anymore that I hardly think anyone needs to be overly concerned about necro-posting.
