Topics I've Started
20 January 2011 - 08:49 AMOkay, many people avoid playing paintball at night because they fear the other side has night vision. Over the years I have done tons of research on how to get the advantage over those that can see through the darkness. Here are some basic tactics that will leave you and your team in the driver seat during night time engagments with night vision.
First know how knight vision (NV) works. The science behind it is real cool, the bottom line is the NV device snatches all the available light and generates an image.
Second most NV devices do not generate an imagage that accurately gauge distances between foreground and background, That is not to say they don't or that the operator hasn't developed a system of determaning distance.
Third NV devices MAY be suspect to too much light. MAY!
okay so how do we overcome these very clever NV devices and operators.
First operate with your squad an assume you will encounter NV. You must have a clear leader in the squad that will determine position and formation the second you make contact with and NV device! You must take the initiative away from the NV operator with superior firepower and numbers. You must actively search out the NV operator and eliminate him.
Second take the proper tools onto the field to do the job right. Make sure to follow all the fields saftey rules. You will need light...lots of it...lots of it. One tac light will not get it done...two tac lights will not get it done..every one in the squad needs to have a tach light. Preferably one with a strobe feature.
Okay here is the set up. 24 hour scenario game. NV is on the field with an expirienced operator. He is off a highly used trail. There is plenty of cover to sheild him from paint, and he has found himself a kill-hole to shoot through.
Your squad enters the field. Squad leader is in the back. Point man up front. Set up 5 yard intervals with a reversed v formation. Remember point man's job is to be a rabbit for the NV user to shoot at. Talk openly and loud for direction. You will not have time for radio button pressing. Now, with alternating users light up the covered areas! Only do it for a couple of seconds..3 to 4 secs at the most. Guns up and at the ready.
When the NV user sees you coming...and he will. He will have to decide. Lay low and let you pass..and hope you don't find him, or move. Either way you have silenced him..you win.
If there is an NV operator working in conjunction with a fire squad, your primary mission must still be to eliminate the NV operator. When engaged in squad sized firefight at night remember to keep the targets in the light..effectivly bliding them. Continue to move to their flanks and press. Always alternating your light source form one tac light to another.
If you have strobe light even better. You can effectivly blind an entire squad with one light source. Don't worry about epilepse enduced symtpoms anyone that is suspect to epilepse knows to look away.
Bottom line..respect the NV and operator, they can play havoc on a paintball field. However, don't miss the rush of night fight because you fear the NV.
We roll out at every event and we are always the last team to leave the field...and we have NEVER used NV. Infact it is too slow and cumbersome for us to use.

This is going to be their first big game for the year. It is a new field located just outside of Lake Placid. Check em out they have been getting bigger and bigger with each event.
03 September 2008 - 02:19 PMPlease tell us what do players want from a scenario.
Let your imaginations run wild.
2. prize packages (what kinds)
3. price (what do you think is fair)
4. field up grades (what kinds)
5. game styles (points vs missions completed totals)
6. genres (western, sci-fi, real war scenarios)
7.What keeps you from showing up (besides wives, previous engagment..see wives, or lack of funds...see wives)
please let it all hang out. If you feel the need to bash someone (producer, team, field owner) please don't. Just let us know how to make things better. We are listening!
28 July 2008 - 07:31 AMMako here,
I am looking for anyone interested in slinging some paint at an awesome new field. I need an Executive Officer XO and some "missions" based teams. I don't care if your new to scenarios or a seasoned pro. I don't care if your 15 or a 150 years old like DUNCAN, I just need some folks who like to kick butt. I don't care if you walk on alone or have 30 guys on a team. I have a spot for you on the VC side. Are you like my team and hate running missions...that's okay, are you a missions junkie trying to complete every mission on your own...that's okay, sniper? Okay, Trooper....Okay.
In other words... I welcome everyone and as your general I will gaurentee only one thing... you will have a great time doing what you want to do!
