Some people don't need to shoot 50 paintballs at one person to keep them down or hit them.

Hehe, yeah it was an over exadration (how ever it's spelled), however I did see a few kids who went through 1000 rounds in a 3 min game and didn't tag anyone. I see that alot unfortunetly.

I understand there are CQB skills in Speedball, I just don't see the point in the whole 20bps battery powered spray hosing that I see alot of people doing. If I am on a speedball field I do like you (Cenic), 10 is the most, I ususally keep it in 3 to 5 range. I am not bashing speedball per say, it is very fun. I know some of the Jesters here in Jersey, and they would be the first I would pick in any type of CQB game. I just don't like the additude alot of SB players have about how great speedball is and how woodsball sucks and how everyone should only play speedball. If you scroll through the forums you see it alot. As you can see with PB freaks responce, he thinks that the majority of players are SB players. That must be why 1700+ people showed up for D-Day at skirmish, a big scenario game. If you look across the board, I'd say about 45% of PB players are woods only, 45% are speedbal only, and the other 10% switch back and forth. PBfreak010 you may be just in an area where speedball rules the fields, out here there are alot more woodsball players. If you would grow up and see that people play diffrently and not everyone agrees with you, and you can learn to respect that, maybe alot more people wouldn't think you are such an annoying little ****. I personaly prefer woods (which is how it all started) to SB, but I switch back and forth to what ever game is being played. I like SB once in a while, I just think it's a waist of paint for the most part, but I can still respect SB player. When I play SB I uses a hopper maybe a hopper and 1/2 if I am a front man, It's just ***** like you pbfreak010, that I can't tollerate. People who think the world should revolve around the way they play, and only what they think is right. In closing I would just like to say, grow up and learn to respect other peoples styles of play and maybe you will get some friends.

I'm a rec ball player so I play whatever style of paintball is at the field I'm at. It ranges from woods to speed or whatever is in between. Personally I prefer woods because the game is more varied then speed. But I enjoy both, after all it's all paintball and thatís what we all do. I'll throw the paint when necessary. But realistically speaking, the guy on the other team is going to keep his head down whether he has 2 paintballs going for his head or 30 for his general location.

^^^
Now whos bashing on whos type of play *****?????????
u r the biggest ****ing hypocryte i have ever met....
also when u said u use a hopper maybey a hopper and a half if u play front... its kind of obvious that you have no clue what so ever about paintball noob...... if u ever payed attention to any APG/ PB2X you would notice that backplayers cary around 12-14 pods while front players only carry 3 pods maybey a 4+3 so in your saying that you would prolly use more paint playin front than you would playin back then u must be a complete idiot..
ok 1700 people played at D-DAY whoopy frikin doo... how many teams play at World Cup/ IAO??????
Altho that doesnt matter because i never bashed woodsball infact i play it from time to time....... i bash idiots like you that think they snipe and that want to have some cool guy armotech...
so before u try to make ur self sound cool maybey you should read the previous post and try to say something a little more intelligent... if not then just STFU!!!

First.

I use an AT85 or a Maverick, the only ArmoTech I have are 2 ZEUS G2 pistols. Let's do the math, A hopper on an AT85 is a quick chance foward loader. This foward loader holds 55 rounds. If I use a hopper to a hopper and 1/2 that means at most I use 75, let's say I go crazy and use 2 hoppers, that's 110 rounds. 110 rounds is 1/2 of a standard hoppers capicity.

2nd I never said you would use more paint in the front then the back. The back guy is the spray machine that keeps heads down at a distance so the front players can move with out getting nailed. I have been playing this sport for years and I think I know how this stuff works.

3rd, A basic 3 pod pack at 140 a pod (140 pods seem more comon then the 100 for most speedball players) = 420 rounds. Even if I used a standard hopper at 200 rounds, and I used 1 to 1/2 hoppers then I am only using 1 reload pod and have alot of extra ammo left because I would be shooting around 300 total shots. But like I said, I use an AT85 when I play speedball and I use 1 to 1 1/2 hoppers totaling about 75 to 80 rounds, and that is with alot of cover fire. As rfsutcl pointed out, a person can be bunkered weither it is 2 well placed shots or 30 sprayed ones. You only need them to hide there head for a second to gain an advantage.

4th, As far as sniping. I do snipe. Not many people espically people like you with your closed minded spray and prey only mentality can understand what that means, and alot of people just don't have the paitence or nerve for it. On large games (Scenario espically) as a sniper you can go for 30 minutes to an hour and not see any action, but when you do it's sweet. A paintball sniper is someone who concels himself from view, slowly moves in to position and takes 1 or 2 very well aimed shots to take out an oppent and keeps his position hidden while moving very slowly to the next one. Ghilie suits are a common tool of a paintball sniper because a paintball gun's accuracy range is not very far so you need to get very close to insure a good clean single mark shot. I can get 20oz soad bottles with my AT85 at a measured 87 feet with 1 shot 19 out of 20 times, but past that the group start to widen considerably, however it's enough to get the job done. I usually get to about 30 to 40 feet away before I consider taking a shot, and several people who uses similar stragities, myself included can be 5 feet away from you and you will never see it coming.

5th, ArmoTech's are nice guns if you really want to spend $500 for a Spyder or Tippmann clone that looks milsim, with mostly stock parts (execpt the barrel), but for that kind of money I would rather have a Phantom Stock, or a selectfire AT85, or save some cash and get an A5 with flatline. I don't think they are worth the cash for the cosmetic aspect alone. Now for example my AT85, I got it off Ebay for $280. It retails for over $600 w/ the starter kit. If I had to spend $600 on a gun I would get an AT85 before any other, then a tippman A5 (Sorry I just don't like batterues) then an autococker and trick it a bit. The AT85 fits all my needs. Yes it is a MilSim, it dosn't have a hopper like a standard gun, it has a foward loader and a mini warp system in the clip, it has mecanical select fire, and is the most accurate gun I have ever seen, including any Angel with barrel system, due to it's micro honed barrel and unisizer (which makes a peferect barrel to paint match no matter what type of paint you are using, as long as it is high quality. Mixed included). Anyway I am getting off track. The AT85 fits my needs and as such I would drop $600 on an AT85 before I would even thing about an Armotech M4. I have to agree with you that an Armotech rifle is a waist of money unless you just want the looks. I would take a stock spyder with freak barrel kit and a revy over a loaded $600 Armotech.

6th, If you read my post after that first "Oh look at me..." Qoute and could understand what it means, I said I was exaderting and acknoldged that SB players have CQB skills and that I just happen to see alot of spray and prey going on in the SB fields, espically with the newbies.

7th, I wasn't bashing Speedball or there players, but rather the newbies who spray from start to stop and your dumb *** for be a "the world revolves around me" type *** hole.

8th, I really wouldn't know how many teams play at the WC or IAO, because I don't follow them. You have to ask yourself a few questions though. I have seen a few of these games (dvd or tape at a store that the employies were watching, and I figured "sure why not?" and sat there and watched a few matches.). Haven't you ever noticed hot damn hostile everyone is? It's just a game, but someone gets tagged out and it's obscenity's flying everywhere! Where is the sportsman ship?
The 2nd question you have to ask yourself is Why are they here at the WC or IAO? It's not purly for fun. It's for the large Cash prizes and a chance at a either getting sponcered or getting a better deal and more free stuff. How many people do you think would show up at an IAO game if there wern't Thousands in prizes and they assured the players there would be no contracts one. It would cirtenly be a lot less people. D-Day is an example of people who want to play for fun. The only prizes awared where a few tippmanns and a random drawing for some other lower cost items. Almost everyone there was there to play for fun and where paying for it out of pocket, not because they thought they could win the money back and tons of prizes, and air time on TV, they where there to have fun. They walked in for a 2 day game, and walked out 2 days later, a few hundred dollars down, much happier, and had a lot more fun then most any of the people who go to those champion ship sporting events.

Maybe you should reflect on things before you start your babble postings.

Basic jist.... Have fun playing PAINTBALL, not speedball, woodsball, airball, Xball....etc...etc.

Paintball is fun, when it's not fun anymore then I will no longer play. I will find some other sport more fitting of my age, like checkers.

Actually the team i play with just got back from a bridge to far where the Armotech guns were out firing A-5 users for range yeah there are similarities to other guns with the armos but if you really want to get down to it there are between most guns. The armos are highly accurate guns, very good ranged guns, very durable, and fit milsim and scenario play very well. Everyone is entitled to their opinions as far as what guns they liek and what style they like but when it comes down to it it is mostly all your skills that make the kills, and a little luck thrown in never hurts. and liek the man said its all paintball in the end have fun whatever style you ply using whatever guns you like. But in my opinion for what i like to play armos rule.
