surround yourself with people better than you with good work ethics and learn everything you can from them.

Check out the 2nd post

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3750737

You've got to learn to not just be a robot, moving up in a predictable pattern; breakout drills and snap shooting will only get you so far, you have got to learn how to truly understand the game.
At higher levels paintball begins to resemble a chess match, skill will only get you so far, once you have skill down it becomes understanding the game, understanding how the game you are in right now will affect the next game you play.

In my area it's all politics, moving up has nothing to do with how good you are.

That is actually more common than you would think. Paintball is just like anything else in this world and who you know matters....a lot.

My team has been on the grind for a couple months now trying to break through to the next level. Its a lot of time, money and hard work but its worth every moment of it when you finally start to "click" with each other.

oh i dont doubt that for a second. it's always good to have people that can get things done for you. but in regards of moving to the next level, politics dont play a role in building strong players. yes, politics influence money, but a crappy team that has financial backing and political connections in the business is still a crappy team. no one tells you you cant play paintball, and no one tells you you cant win tournaments.......unless the refs are against you. if thats the case, people will notice an injustice. playing paintball, and personal drive to be better gets you through to the next level.
