Basically, I'm asking if any refs at woodsball fields across America use this rule; and if so, what's the penalty???

Pneumaniac227, don't sweat it, you've answered my question.



All I'm really asking for is a "YEA" or "NEA" from ALL woodsball refs.

(Maybe I should make a poll........)

I would not penalize unless it was specifically against the rules, becuase I believe people should call paintchecks if they are fairly certain that they hit the other player. Sometimes, people go overboard, but for the most part, paintchecks keep the game fair.

I don't use it in woodsball, nor will I use it on the touney players in open tourney play. If it becomes a rule, then I will use it, but our rules are more for safety then trying to punish someone over something as trivial as checking clean people and giving a penalty to the other team.

My experience is that in the SPPL, calling for a paintcheck on an opponent is asking to get penalized.. everyone was so honest, it dosen't make any sense unless you saw it break on someones goggles and he popped up again with the hit there in plain sight (which never happened, btw)

Also, in basic woodsball, there isn't any real way to penalize the team most of the time.. in the SPPL it is a 5 point deduction, but in a basic woodsball game, you could only pull a player (too drastic), or hand the game to the team who the paintcheck was called upon..neither of which works
