Xball centers more around the concept of a faster-paced version of paintball. There are two timed halves of the game in which as many rounds are played, center flag format, as possible for points. When a team wins a round, they get one point. The team with the most points at the end of both halves is the winner. Penalties are assessed based on time in a penalty box, similar to hockey. The rest is pretty much nit picky stuff.

X-ball is a faster, and more expensive version of the game, you would have to see a complete rule book, but

the fields are different setup
15 bps full auto
3 timers going
5 min between games
15 min matches
play for 15 minutes and whoever gets the most points in the 15 minutes wins.....


now im not entireley sure on all of that but i think thats the basics

Generally, division 2 and 3 X-ball teams bring two lines. A line is five people. The lines aren't concrete; you can swap out players if needed, as long as you got your five on the field. Open and NXL teams usually bring three lines.

Open X-ball is two 16-minute halves. I believe time continuously runs, but I might be wrong. Divisional X-ball is 15-minutes of game time, so the game clock stops in between points. D2 is first to 7 points or until time is up, and D3 is first to 5 points or until time is up.

xball= whinny people, a **** load of paint, running like a scared Mexican, and shooting the other team before they shot you. And its a smaller field with a giant X in the center.

I'm sure he means he plays regular speedball without the big X in the middle.
