Hi everyone, I've been playing paintball for almost 2 years now. I used to do woodsball and stuff but now I hate it and I love speedball. Usually when my friend and I go to play at our local field (Hollywood Sports) we play speedball with people at our level.
I have a ProMaster and he has an 05 Proto. So we played 2 on 2 with some guys that had Timmies and they were pretty good. We lost the first game but we played again and we won. After the second game was over a guy on the other team asked me, "Do you wanna play one on one?" And I said "No thanks, I already know you're better than me." And his friend said "Just do it, it will make you better." So I said "Ok, I'll play." And we played and he shot me im the leg.
So then we went to go play X-Ball. Usually there's players from a team sponsored by Hollywood Sports that have Ego's and Shocker's and you know. So one of them asked me if I wanted to play and I said "Sure." and my friend was like "I'll sit out." So right off the break I run to the dorito and start shooting down my tape, then I looked at the snake and there was a guy in it. I started shooting at him and he ducked and some other people kept him pinned while I looked for other players and before you know it "Bam!" I get like 5 balls in my back and I start walking off and then I get 5 more balls to my side while walking off! I was really pissed and now I don't play with them anymore. So my main question is, how is getting bonus balled making me better?
And also when I play with people that shoot alot of paint really fast I kinda get scared and hide behind my bunker and I can't do anything. I snap out and like 10 balls fly at my face. What can I do about this?
Sorry for such a long long post, this is probably the longest thread I've posted yet. So please just give me some advice and help me out. Thanks alot for your time
