What is the difference between...?

What is the difference between just a regular game of paintball and speedball?

there is no "regualr" game of paintball. many people play paintball in diff. ways. speedball is just one aspect of the sport. in speedball you play on a more open field with bunkers placed in certain positions. the fields are smaller and can be made of a variety of things like, spools, barrels, sup air, and hyperball fields. the object in speedball mostly involves around capturing a flag hung in the center of the field and bringing it to were your opponents started.

Id say the newer players like woods more (i know i did) but as you get better, you tend to really appreciate speedball, and start to prefer it. like i do.

Evil, I want you to understand one thing, this is a public paintball message board. Dont feel stupid asking questions. You are new, everyone was new once. Now sometimes you will get some a hole flaming newbies but most of the time the regulars will set them straight. Again its not a mistake, you are new, and we are here to help. Later

it just depends on what you like, if you like battle tactics, larger teams, little less hectic playing and wondering if that guy thats climbing that hill is on your team or the other team then you might wanna play forest
if you like in your face action, games that last a heart stopping 10 min (max) and getting bunkered and/or bunkering other people then there is nothing more lovely than a good game of speedball...

Me personally i liked speedball because its just more up front you know where everybody is and you can watch it from the sidelines and pick up on certain tactics better.

Hope this helps...

i personally cant stand woodsball...there is just something about not being able to see anyone, or even if you could, you would waste 99% of your paint on the underbrush and trees anyway...that of course, is my oppinion, but its a very good one =)
shooting an automag is like sleeping with an ugly woman...its fun until your friends find out. =)
