You're just as - if not more so - incoherent than the first guy. Paint has gotten cheaper for a multitude of reasons, some good, some bad, most indifferent - - but the most important (read: relevant to any diehard player) reason paint has gotten cheaper is that fields are desperate to expand their customer base. Enticing new players (which, if you do your research, is where the fresh money is coming in, which - and I shouldn't have to explain this - is the only way paintball as a sport is going to survive in the current economy) by making things more affordable (your average newb isn't into dumping all that cash for admission/air/paint/gear/etc. before deciding if he/she even likes the game) as a business tactic has its merits, though, of course, the obvious downside is the reduction in cash gain if nobody goes for the bait. Your average paintball field is essentially sinking more or less rapidly in financial quicksand right now - - and like any business that senses its own demise, owners begin to try different ways to wrangle some fresh blood. Cheaper paint is nothing more than three or four completely impact-less factors (such as cheaper paint manufacture) covering up for the big banana, which is that commercial paintball - as a whole -is circling the drain.
Of course, explaining all that to a guy who doesn't know how to use the word "comprehensive" appropriately in a sentence is like spending a decade teaching gerbils to remember the quadratic equation... boring, pointless, and ultimately impossible to try to ram cogent thought into a brain smaller than a grape.

I will be new to playing back. When i used to play i was a front guy and absolutely loved it. Now i am getting back into pb after 6yrs and a recent injury has left me slightly immobile when it comes to sprinting and such.

I have always had love for my guys in the standups but now i will truly see how difficult the job can be.

Accuracy was always pivotal for me. I rocked out a shocker sport forever and it rarely let me down. The freak system made all the difference when it came out

You don't have to tell them what to do or where to go necessarily. Just let them know, "I've got you covered" or "You're clear to move". You don't have to be demanding just let them know that if they want to the opportunity is there.

As for the guy that doesn't think they should listen. Don't worry about them, just call out opposing players positions and do your thing. If they think they know best let them try to make moves and get shot due to lack of information. If they really want to be condescending and/or rude towards you. Maybe you wrap or shoot out the other side of your bunker when you see them going to make their big move.

My two cents:

I switch out between playing front and back. When I'm playing front I love my back player. With that said, I can see the logic in putting slower players in the back. However it's comforting to know that my back player will be fast enough to make the corner. There's nothing more disheartening to me, then making the snake only to hear that my back player got shot out running to the corner.

When I'm playing back corner it's kind of nice to know that I can at least run fast enough to run down the high way or tape line to bunker their snake player once their corner has been killed. I've found that this can be extremely helpful because it keeps your snake player in the game if you get shot or trade out with their snake guy. In some cases during rec ball with no coaches, the other team may even think it was your snake player that did the run through and they don't know he's still in giving him the chance to move up as far as possible and make some important kills.

Also it's terribly fun when playing back center, once we've made a decent to push, to haul *** on up to that 50 yard line bunker to take a few guys out.

I had a back player in a couple of speedball games the other week and he failed me in two games, though it worked out in the end. In one game I flopped into the snake and he let one of their guys get into the snake with me. Luckily I saw him move into the insert and was able to post up and get him out, but on this field my backy should have easily stopped the guy from getting to the insert in the first place. In the next game, I got into the snake and moved the the 50 and began harassing their world big time, and one of their mids decided to put an end to it since I was irritatingly snapping and had taken out their midfield frontman already. This guy crossed over from the 30 while I was hunkered down, and luckily I was facing forwards when he came across their end of the snake and I put two balls on him while he bounced one off my softcap (ref checked) I went on to pillage the field, but here too was another time when my backy should've been lambasting the crossing mugger.
The point being that if you're playing back and your front is counting on you, you kind of need to do your job and not let your attention wander, even if it's getting dull watching an empty lane. Targets of opportunity will pop up off your lane, but you can't leave it for long or your front guy may get screwed...
