Marker hits

I have played at fields where marker hits count and I have also played at a few fields where marker hits don't count.
What is your view and general opinion on this rule?
Should marker hits count as out or not?

if anything you as a player has in your possesion on the field of play is hit you are eliminated from the game. this includes marker, hopper, pack ect...

our field marker hits count. its just easier. if you have an experienced player the gun is what you only see most of the time, so they will be playing a long time. hope that made sense?

also, it eliminates people from blind firing

I think all hits should count.

Played at a scenario recently where gun hits didn't count. I wonder how many times I was out, but forgot that gun hits didn't count.

Depends on the field. Simple as that.

In tournament play: All gear counts.
In scenario and recreational: That's completely up to the field to decide, doesn't change the fact that I have no intention of putting my marker out to get shot, I hate having to do excess cleaning, and risk hand shots.

On our speedball fields everything counts.
On our recball fields gun hits don't count.
I think this is perfect that way and i like it.

i agree this is totally field dependant, however being in the military i have alot of friends who claim they would be more interested in playing paintball if gun hits didnt count, which makes sense to an extent, we are talking about a bunch of guys who actually have tactical training and what not and dont care if their gun gets shot in battle as long as the bullet doesnt hit them. but as someone who is in the military and is an avid fan of all things paintball i would be very upset if they suddenly decided everywhere that gun hits didnt count.

I think they should count... but solely because if they play on that just means more things to clean at the end of the day..

Marker hits should count. This prevents endless blind firing.

Imo All hits should count. It keeps it streamlined with no grey area.

i like that at my field everything counts. like a couple before me less blind fireing which = less time running around telling them not to.

Like Alex said, at our field on the rec ball gun hits don't count, and what he didn't mention was that no blind firing is allowed, if you get caught doing it you're out

I think that gun hits should count. Many times I've been playing rec ball in the woods and all you can see is the side of a guys mask and his gun, and it sucks because you either have to wait forever for him/her to expose more of themselves as a target, or you have to go through tons of paint to try and hit such a small target. It really slows down the game when gun hits don't count.

I think everything should count.

while staying somewhat on topic.... i was at a field yesterday that didnt count head hits. Thought it was pretty stupid, but i guess their reasoning was because the newer players would always stick their heads out and get out within the first minute of the game. So to make it a little more fun for the new players and to keep them coming back they made it easier for them. I can understand the reasoning, so i didnt care if they didnt go out... but i still called myself out if i was hit in the face

It's up to the field to make that choice. My personal opition is marker hits count. Recball or speedball I play that way. I played with a guy who didn't know that marker hits count, but we told him anyways. I shot him in his marker and I prepared to shoot the next guy. I look to check that he is walkign out and I see his gun sticking out still. I turn to shooting him again and I shot his marker 6 times and then said to him that he was out. He said marker hits count? I just find things like that don't happen if you play all hits count. Because trying to figure out where to hit the guy if he plays smart is very hard.

I believe marker hits should count. I have fun either way, but it can be annoying to go back in forth between fields with two different rules.
