  1. In Topic: Protecting our man-ness

    30 September 2010 - 03:36 PM

    I noted in my first post that I'd never been shot in the nuts yet.

    This past weekend, from inside of 5 meters, got shot 4 times in the groin area. I have 3 bruises on my thighs. I knew I was shot in the groin, but my friend pointed out that I'd been shot in the nuts; twice. One of them must have broke on my nuts without me feeling it. The other one must've glanced off the cup and then broke on my thigh.

    I doubt a soft pad would've provided the same protection.

    That being said, I hate when I need to get down on the ground with a cup on, and think a soft pad with a hard shell that was flat would be ideal.

    I'm going to have to agree with Drek on this one. All things being equal, a pump player is at a disadvantage against an equally good semi player. It's just basic logic for me. If Player A and Player B are equal in all skill sets (snap shooting, communication, moving, et cetera), but Player A has a pump and Player B has a semi, Player B has a clear advantage as far as fire power goes.

    All things being equal..the semi player is a ta disadvantage in this situation.

    In the scenario ou paint the semi player is going to lay down volumes of paint evertime he sees the chance. He is going to lean on the crutch of the trigger and be quite sure that he will win due to the firepower. Over confident, he will hang out to long and get snapped.

    The pump teaches a player to think...not just shoot.

    That is why I do it. It makes me a better player.

    I was only at a disadvantage when I started pumping becuase I was still limping on the semiauto crutch. Now when I semi...I think and trigger. This has turned me into a much better player.

    Man i can't wait...we are going to start running pump only ariball tournies again! OhhhYEAH!

    No offense, but that is probably one of the dumbest, most stereotypical things I've heard all day. Just because the other guy is running a semi doesn't mean he is going to rely solely on his firepower.

    Mehphisto...gotta agree with you here. Come on Krazy, you really think people who play with a semi have no control over their trigger fingers?

    Nowaih? I wonder if they will even go that far.

    Quick tip for all the agg-n00bs out there. Easiest way to be agg is to bring agg FROM THE FUTURE.

    Lol nice, i tend to like keeping my visor on anymore, since i seem to get this habit of getting my head shot at. Now it might seem odd, why keep the visor? Ha, I think ive had more paint bounce/slide on my visor and go over my head on the rebound than have broken on me. Hooray for the grooves on i3's.

    I discovered the reason for visors. It's to keep paint out of your mask. Got shot from an elevated perch, and the paint got onto the inside of my dual-pane lenses (E-Vents). Eventually absorbed into the material, ruining the lens. Word of warning.

    I don't mind it over there. Yeah, there is a load of fan-boys, but people are sheep by nature, if he wasn't leading them I'm sure they'd find someone else to follow. Plus I think Mike has some pretty solid values that gets imprinted onto their brains.

    Plus I like the activity.
