20 November 2009 - 09:12 AM*yawn* whatever. I think I'm just going to remove this site from my bookmarks. It seems every time I post something here all I get is criticism from the elitists. Apparently you are all too good to just say "hey that was pretty neat" without pointing out something us backwoods hicks are doing wrong. You know what, screw all of you people.
Gravdigr, signing off permanently.

Yeah. Sadly the college speedball teams that showed up did not make it to the semi finals (My team took out one of them). So we had no 'professional' paintball players available to demonstrate proper walking. It's just not used much here.
19 November 2009 - 07:14 PMbarrel bags are not necessary when an air source is not hooked up, and we never wear a mask when chronoing, no real need with the mosquito net over the barrel. They do not use barrel plugs because they can be blown out, and when you go to a paintball shop to look at a marker do they insist you have a barrel bag on it when you look at it? Since opening in feb they have had over 7,000 unique visitors and have never had an incident attributed to safety which is amazing considering I would estimate 75% of their business comes from first time players. I play there every week. Safety is taken seriously there and employed where necessary. I think you may be taking it a bit overboard, but that's just me.
19 November 2009 - 06:35 PMWhat do you mean? Barrel bags are required before leaving the arena or entering the safe room. I didn't see any examples of not using barrel bags.
And the way we play is super crazy. We call it organized chaos. And it is dark down there lit only by some colored bulbs. This allows a person to wear just about anything and still blend in.
08 November 2009 - 10:35 PMI guess I view it as an objective game. During the deathmatch tourney a few months ago they enforced an anti-camping rule because teams would just sit and not move and matches would drag and be not fun. For the CTF tourney the camping rule was suspended to allow teams to leave defenders back at their base to prevent a flag cap. The strategy they used of grabbing the flag then taking it back to their base and sitting on it technically followed the rules but did not follow the spirit of the rule, a loophole if you will.
In any case the strategy did work. We tried to adjust but once they get dug in back there it was virtually impossible to crack them due to the course design. And we did a LOT of strategy. When we would see which team we would play next one or 2 of my team members would go pump any other teams they played for intelligence on how the team we were going to play did their thing. Were they fast? Did they rush tunnel? Were they able to be intimidated? There was a lot of psych warfare between matches. Like when we played team Young Guns, it was a local team of kids between the ages of 12 and 18. They though they were all that and a bag of chips. We learned they had a member or two that was afraid of being hit so we started talking loudly so they could overhear (their table was right by ours) about trying not to get flagged for overkill and make sure we hit them no more than 2 or 3 times per player. Then we would start pointing over discussing what order we would take them out. We loaded heavy with paint (I can carry almost 1,000 rounds in my pods) saying how we wanted to lay as much as possible. First match we came out gunning hardcore, not really shooting at the other team but hitting doors and any metal barrels, whatever would make the most racket. We won the first match, the second match a kid of about fifteen was seen on one of the arena cameras wiping paint off a wall onto his mask and calling himself hit. It was all a psych out. We did not 'light them up'. We never hit any of them with more than 1 ball. But the intimidation factor was huge hehe.
EDIT: oh, and during this game we and another team had flag runners who would drop their markers when they got the flag and low crawl with it into the other teams base. The flag was on a 4' long wooden pole and pretty heavy. Almost impossible to carry with a marker at the same time. Most of our caps were done by an unarmed player. In your example the player you describe completed the objective. Only one team completed an objective against us in one match. The rest used the camping loophole which IMO is not as honorable even though they technically stayed within the rules. I think other teams learned we play very agressive and are practically impossible to move the flag against and rather than try they took their other choice which was hide. So we definitely earned respect.
