Whats the thing that pisses you off the most at the field?

For me it tends to be arrogant noobs. I tend not to go easy on them the first game or so, just because they think they are the best thing that walked this earth and need to be put in place. What about you guys?

Arrogant anybody.

Experienced players who "club baby seals", whumping on renters and kids with speedball/tournament tactics and such. I'm no Oliver Lang myself, but if I'm going to play with a group of renters or young players, I'll leave my Darq in my gearbag and break out my pump.

People who think it's "cool" to bunker those same renters and kids. No reason for that.

People that basically act like jerks. There is no reason to ramp in rec games, bunker people etc. it's even worse when they brag about it. Bad reffing too...that really gets under my skin as well.

The stuck up guy who won't play with anybody. "oh, he has a pump/renter/mech/anything that's not a Luxe, I wouldn't dream of demeaning myself by playing with someone like that." then they finally do play and suck. So bad.

I know this thread is titled "What's the thing that pisses you off THE MOST at the field," but I have a couple:

1.) I used to say simply "cheating" but that doesn't cover enough ground. I now put it under the heading of "Dishonorable Playing"

This includes the worst of literal cheating (wiping, cheating the chrono, knowingly playing-on through hits (this includes waiting for a ref to call you out when you know you're out), and using illegal modes and/or trigger bounce on semi). I'm sure I missed some of the methods, but they're all included.

^^These things alone have played a HUGE role in the decline of paintball and the reluctance of new players to join the sport.

However, it goes further than that (and this is where the "dishonorable playing" title comes in):

Even in the absence of "cheating" per-se, a player with the wrong attitude and lack of self-control can still cause damage to the sport. What I'm talking about here is:

a.) No respect for field staff/authority and/or other players.
b.) Going "hard" on new players.
c.) Overshooting ANYONE. PERIOD.
d.) Bunkering when a single shot or two from a distance was possible.
e.) Poor-sportsmanship, whether it's sore-losing or unneeded gloating on a win.


2.) For lack of a better term:

"People who won't put their money where their mouth is."

a.) "Speedballers" who talk smack and disrespect of the game of 'woodsball;' yet won't "lower themselves" to actually go try it out. Utterly silly. They wouldn't have 'speedball' if it wasn't for woodsball. Frankly, they are the same game and require the same set of skills -- the fields just look different. In my opinion, a true "paintballer" uses the terrain and the environment to his/her best advantage, and doesn't give that terrain and/or environment a second thought.

b.) "Woodsballers" who talk smack and disrespect of the game of 'speedball,' yet won't "lower themselves" to actually go try it out. See reasons listed in exhibit a.) above.


Have a nice day!

Woodsballers, who think we are playing call of duty,Cause belive it or not those guys who are full up camo with the vests and the tm15s are the ones lighting people up and people blame us speedballers.When people bring up coms, calling diffrent games "mods" and, barking orders at us while they sit back and fire at the trees blowing in the wind i often switch sides and light them up and show the renters just cause you look like your in the army dont mean your perform like it, And i tell all the little renters, this

Agreed. My first time out I was bunkered by a guy with a good 10 or so inches between his barrel and my leg. I still have the scar.
