Well, here's what I was thinking... What if paintball fields were to invest in one of these regulation sized X Ball fields and have it set up for open play? Would you wanna go play X Ball like you would play b-ball pick up games at the local black top? I think players would want to go play pick up games afterschool/work during the week. I asked SC Arena's VP about setting up an X Ball field at H.S.P., and he said something I can't remember... um, yeah. Playing X ball as practice can really help you learn how to play aggressively and help improve your snap shooting and run thrus. Imagine being able to watch how the proballers play the field, learning from it, and then applying those concepts in your own game. Like how the above pictures show BC thinking on his feet, working with backplayers, and move with perfect timing. Or, watching the SC Ironmen send one runner and keep 4 sweetspotters in the back, to sweetspot three of our players on the break (they've discovered a foolproof top secret strategy to make this happen, watch for it at the next XBall event). Or, watching the SC Ironmen provide enough coverfire for Zyzek to run thru and bunker/shoot out 4 of our players (whew! glad I wasn't playing that game). Or, watch SC Ironmen coordinate another top secret Zyzek run thru, again. I'm glad I spend most of my time at the field watching and not play too many games. It helps me save a lot of money on paint. Plus, playing with a pumpgun has its accuracy advantages, ya know? Anyway, like I said, it was lots of fun standing on the sidelines all day and being able to watch SC Ironmen execute the different plays from their top secret, 1,000+ page playbook. I think I've learned a lot.

Good article, although I am ignorant in the HK-IK sense.
Nope, I don't see any HK-IK or hkSNPR info here. For a full report on their X Ball practice this past weekend, do a search on the "Hostile Pukes" thread in this forum.
