I've wiped quite a few times, but it's not a habit for me. In rec games I might wipe if the shot was totally random from across the field because some noob was too afraid to move in and take me on. In tourney/speedball play, I have never wiped. It's totally situational. Usually though, I will call myself out even if a ref doesn't see the break.

Not to flame... but this is by far the worst justification for wiping yet. My friend jumped off a bridge without a parachute, I'm going to do it too... my friends all do drugs and everyone else is doing it, so am I!!

Being completely honest... no... I have never wiped in the 5 years I have played on/off. Where's the honor and... well fun in that?

Now this is motivational:

2. And what was the motive?
* Motive? Well, my motive for NOT wiping is that any hit is a hit. This game, at one time, had some honor in it. When people started justifying wiping, it pushed paintball back down the ugly road toward the old cops & robbers games of childhood - the days of "I shot you/No, I shot you/I shot you first!/No, I shot YOU first!". Have I had opportunities to wipe, or get away with cheating? Sure, but I'm not out there to break the most basic rule of the game.

1. Have i wiped ? Yeah
2. why? cause it was like off the break, and the guys pulled off the net before the game started... but if i sincerely get hit, i wait for the ref to check it, if not fair game, and i know that some will agree

Now this is motivational:


let me open your mind to something you obviously havn't thought about before....

In football, one of the best skills for a cornerback to have isn't just to cover the wide receivers, it's to mess them up and to get in as much contact as possible with the receiver WITHOUT getting a flag for pass interference. This is true in all sports. Basketball players and soccer players will fall down on purpose to get the other team a foul or penalty. Baseball players sometimes won't get out of the way of a ball coming for them while batting so they get on base.


Every good paintballer will wipe if the opppurtunity is there. We, like the players above, aren't just playing the game, we're playing to win. If you say tournament players are cheating when they wipe, then you're saying that everything listed above is cheating too.

It's people like you who are going to be the downfall of this sport. If you think wiping is not cheating then you have a serious problem. You cannot compare wiping to other sports like you did. If you're going to compare it would have to be as follows:
-after the other team scores you go and take a point of theirs off the score board

Their is no excuse for wiping. I don't care if it's because you're "dedicated" to the sport. That is not dedication, that is a disgrace.

yes, only in tournys.

dont look at it as cheat, it is a decision you make depending on the situation, obviously if a ref is right next to u don't. But think of it like this if you get caught you get penalized. Think of football. If a lineman goes offsides and gets caught, the other team gets 5 free yards, but if he gets away w/ it than he has an advantage over the opposition. Now everytime a penalty is called in any other sport no one calls it cheating. Wiping is a penalty.

Now in practice its just retarded to wipe because than you dont learn.

You need to stop comparing it to other sports. It is not even close to being the same. Wiping is not a penalty, IT IS CHEATING.
