09 April 2011 - 06:35 PMSo the objective of shooting a paintball at someone, is to hit them with a paintball.
I could turn your whole argument around simply by arguing this one point.
That the point of shooting a paintball at someone, is to leave a mark of paint on that player.
The objective isn't to put a mark on the player - the mark just proves that you hit them. The objective is to hit them, and the mark takes away their ability to say that you didn't.
I would love it if people counted bounces - I have a few vivid memories where I completely outplayed someone, but only placed one or two shots on their chest, only to have the shots bounce and then get lit up for being nice.
26 January 2011 - 11:51 AMIt depends on where you are playing.
I love my ghillie, and I worked really hard to make it, but I don't use it at the local field because there isn't any brush for me to blend with, even on the woods fields. So I just wear a vest to carry my mags and I play a support role with the First Strike rounds. If needed, I'll jump in and play aggresive. As has been stated, do what is needed, not what the SpecOps position states that you have to do.
That said, if I play behind my house or at a field with lots of brush, I bring my ghillie. It works like a charm.
Those positions are marketable guidelines, nothing more.
12 January 2011 - 04:56 PMI don't really get close enough for that to happen a whole lot, but the way I see it - if someone got the drop on me and was nice enough to give me an opportunity to surrender, I'll take it. They could have shot me, and should be rewarded the kill, not punished for their kindness.
It does happen sometimes on the urban field here. I got caught reloading once and another time someone caught me looking out another door and was aiming at me from the back. I'm appreciative when someone is nice enough not to bunker me. If they do take the shot, well, that's just the game. I don't blame them for it.

12 January 2011 - 03:41 PMAs has already been stated, most fields do FPO to make money. I've only ever played at the one field nearby, so my experience is limited.
However, if using your own gear, entry is $10, all day. Paint is something like $70 a case, or $18 per bag. If you're renting, then you are paying $25 to play all day, with mask, gun, gas, and 100 balls.
There is a pretty good discount for having a large group (20 or more).
And, the last Sunday of every month is BYOP. The BYOP allows anything that is .68, except Monsterballs. They also run 4 small scenarios a year with something between 300-400 people, maybe slightly more. They have incredible fields, and a phenominal reffing staff.
Maybe some fields are a little rediculous, I don't know. I certainly have no complaints about the field I go to though.
I will say that I almost never go on a FPO day, mostly because I'm not exactly rich. Exceptions are the scenarios, which are worth every penny.
