07 June 2008 - 12:50 PMIm pretty sure everyone is taking this woodsball thing far to serious. The woods just happen to be where we play because there is no where else to go. The underlying passion comes from the freedom of professional fields and their gestapo rules. And, of course, from all the friendly antics as well. As the man said, "Over 90% of players play paintball in the woods", so its not like any of us are special. The only reason why speedball is in the limelight is because of the political nature of speedball. Compared to playing in the woods, speedball is a gold mine because of all the money sunk into the high tech equipment and cases of rounds shot each game. And its for that reason why sponsors make sure speedball is on tv and played at all fields. So stop trying to turn "woodsball" into the rebellion against the speedball empire because its all a matter of people just trying to make a buck.
What I see at speed ball events is people who want to be known and be in the limelight. They are in most part overly aggressive and short tempeard. The bad thing about it is that everyone can see it. Speed ball is the face of paint ball ( mostly becouse it's hard to see someone in camo in the woods lol ). It may be only a few of them that do it but that is what most people will remember about the game. Also most speedballers dont realy try to promote the fun part of this way of life and help each other it's a pay check for them.
In Woodsball most people will help out others ( even if they are on the other side ), give pointers, take newbes under there wings, and try to get more people involved in the game. It's more like a family. That is the point I get from Tiger. I also thank more and more companies are starting to cove the scenario aspect of the game. I see more and more markers designed for us every day, but remember most of the new market ( like new players and people who want to start playing ) only see speed ball, so untill woodsball and scenario games get in the media they have no other place for ther products to be viewed.
Tyger keep up the great work and keep cranking out the videos it really helps the sport and the people who gust love to play. You contribute a positive view to paintball Thanks!
P.S. I'll be at EMR"s Fall Castle Conquest with my ney Helm Cam
