Topics I've Started
03 May 2010 - 01:12 AMHere are a few simple things I've learned over the last 7-8 years I've been playing Rec Ball.
1. K.I.S.S Keep it simple stupid.
This applies to most aspects of the game. Keep a simple plan, this will make it easier to be responsive to the situation, rather than get bogged down in the intricacies of an over thought plan. This also applies to your maker, don't over accessorize your marker. Keep it light and comfortable, and once you have a setup that fits you, don't change it. A good fitting maker, gets better and better with use.
2. Communicate. Talk to your team members on the field and off the field. This will help you in game, and if you play often you will see the same people at the field. Learn their playing styles and try to get a grasp of how they think, this will help you work with them to win, and also beat them.
3. Shoot 10x the amount of paint off the field as on the field. Your marker should be and extension of your arm, and nothing helps like off the field practice.
Practice shooting form different positions, Lay down and shoot at a target 20 feet above you, crouch and shoot around a tree that would give you cover. Shoot through cracks in bushes. Practice anything you might have to do in game.
4. Shoot 10x less paint on the field. Nothing gives your position away like a stream of bright paint balls. Don't shoot unless you know you can hit, or you have the job of suppressing/Distracting the other team. Paintball is like pool, any decent player can make a shot, but a pro can make a shot and set up his next. Paintball is won by positioning, not marksmanship. Watch any game of speed-ball and this will be apparent, this applies equally to woods ball.
5. Stay low, most wooded areas have many layers of growth. Use the bushes to your advantage, and get comfortable crawling and shooting while laying down.
6. Shoot from the shadows into the sunlight. Stay out of illuminated areas. If you lay in a bush in the shade, and shoot at some one in a bunker in the sun light, there is very little chance of them spotting you. If you apply rule 4 and slowly dial in your shots one at a time, the chances of them seeing you are even lower. Also nothing is more demoralizing then getting randomly shot at from an unknown position, it will totally throw off a mediocre players game.
I hope you these tips help you, I wish some one would have taught them to me.
