Excuses/cheating accusations etc

A short blog post I did today referencing a paintball trend I've noticed lately.

Very to the point......I like it man, if they are cheating then don't make excuses, you play how you play, they'll play how they play and one of you will get a lot better.

I like your thinking. It's hard to keep your cool in situations like that, but stooping down to their level does nothing to remedy the problem. Thanks for sharing. It's nice to have a reminder like this every so often.

I don't care if I get better.

I don't care if my opponent is better than me.

I'm not looking to improve myself, to "practice" for some theoretical future game that's somehow the more "real" game, or to reach some future goal.

Nope, I'm there to play. A game. An activity that's inherently fun. And I take the basic premise of the game (I shoot at you, you shoot at me, someone gets a splat and they're out) dead seriously. And being surrounded by those who take the premise of the game as seriously as me brings me nothing but joy, even when I'm losing.

Those who ignore the basic premise of the game (which is again you get hit, you go out), for whatever reasoning they think of in their inferior minds, just aren't real players. They're just pretending to play paintball, and I do not appreciate these non-players wasting my time, paint, and money on my field. They most certainly aren't "better" than me or any other player. Heck, that first timer with a rental is a better paintball than these losers since he's actually playing paintball, and not just pretending to play.

There will always be cheaters, but that's not an excuse for them. Call them out on it, let it be known that it is NOT acceptable behavior for a real paintballer. Peer pressure is a surprisingly powerful thing, best to use it only for good.

Let the refs know if there is someone cheating and if your local field is tight knit enough just exile that one guy from playing in your game.

And then you could always let him play in your group and have someone bonus ball the **** out of him til he gets the point and calls him self out while you yell gtfo gtfo gtfo!!!!! Heheheheh
