That is by far the worst attempt at justifying reasoning I have ever seen. There is no logical thinking behind it, there is nothing of supporting words, ideas, or thought even. Nice try, but again...even you have failed to debunk that.
That makes no sense. Even by adding the word paintball blue doesn't change meaning. Even by adding the word paintball to sniper it doesn't change meaning. If you want to go around making up words then by all means do so but I'm going to continue to speak english and in english you aren't a sniper when you play paintball. Might as well PM me if you feel like responding. Apparently I'm one of the only ones on here to disagree and I doubt I'll respond in this thread again so it would really do you no good to respond in this thread.
You are right, it made absolutely no sense at all...at least you saw that yourself. If you like to speak English, and define things by the English language, then perhaps you should take some time and actually study the language and discover how many new words are being added to the English Dictionary every year. When you find out that this language you like to speak and define by so much is always changing, then maybe you will learn even more.
As far as sending you a PM, why? Are you incapable of discussion and actually backing the thoughts and reasoning in public posts? I mean, you come in here and try to justify your thoughts, make a reply or two and then take the easy road out.
Apparently I'm not making this clear enough. I DO NOT believe that RELATIVE range is important when defining a sniper. Range, yes, more range then the other guy, no.
See, even that just solidified the definition we have come up with for a paintball sniper...Range has no place in defining the position and you just backed us on that, we thank you for that
If you start to touch the other aspects of the sniper, I'm sure you'd very quickly become convinced that the word sniper doesn't fit any position in paintball no matter what.
Actually, if you are going to come into a discussion it really helps if you read the whole post, especially the first one. Had you read the entire first posting you would have discovered that I went into the other aspects of the sniper...yet clearly missed again by yourself and many others.
Sure, a paintball sniper is mainly a person who shoots from a concealed location, hell if you are a hammer and shot from a hidden place, call yourself a sniper if you want, we don't care. The point is this is just a label, a position, and primary style of play that follows the lines of a sniper, with limitations.
I mean by those thoughts then a Hammer shouldn't be called a Hammer, last time I was playing next to my team's Hammer he wasn't pounding nails into anything. The same goes for the Dagger, never saw that guy playing with a knife....
So, what is you beef with just this position? Are you just following the band wagon because everybody else is? If that is the case, then why don't you take it one step further and start debating those other positions as well...I mean, you are debating the single definition of the word "sniper" here, so let's go on a rampage and start picking away at the others as well.
This is getting so old with the half-thought-reasonings behind why people fail to recognize a paintball sniper. Peopl hear sniper and automatically think of Tom Beringer or other real life snipers...odd how they don't do that with the Dagger and Hammer positions isn't it?
