hey guys...what would you have done in my situation?

So i was playing last weekend as I am getting back into the sport after a looong time off. Off break i did some sweet spotting then hit my stand up while my boy ran to the dorito on the left tape. I was shooting snake when out of corner of my eye i see my friend get eaten alive by a wall of paint at his dorito. I immediately fill his bunker while the dude who shot him filled my mirror but didn't know I was there. So i posted up on his and when he snapped out i let a rope go. First ball hit his hopper, dead on. He didnt see/feel it i guess and kept shooting but I snapped back in so he missed. I yelled to the ref to check his hopper and he went over to his dorito to check it. So I start shooting snake again and before i know it this dude from my mirror is standing behind me unloading on my back. We got a one-4-one, but I just thought it was bull**** he didn't get out....it was ****ing rec ball. If you were me in that situation, would you have just kept shooting the little prick until he got out? or did I make the right decision?

In the future, stay on the guy until you see the ref call him out. Never assume that he is out just because you sent the ref over for a paint check.

Last sunday I was playing snake, and closing out a game I ran down tape and noticed a guy still at the crossfield Dorito.... shooting at me like a rabid duck... so I made a little emergency dive (more like a flop) int their snake... popped up and let a rope hit him... he stands up and immediately starts yelling at me "check your tank, check your tank! I ****ing hit you! look ref!" I immediately stop, and hold my gun away so he can't say I wiped anything... ref runs over... I am 100% clean.

moral?

you didn't hit him

Yeah as said before, never assume someone is out until the ref calls them out. You never know, you may not have hit him, or what the ref saw he thought was bunker rub or he did cheat or whatever you can't assume he is out until he is called out.

Is that sort of thing a regular occurrance at your field, or one of those things that's unusual enough to have caught your attention firmly? If it's something that's normal, personally, I'd shop for somewhere else to play. If it's pretty rare, it might have been just one guy who didn't realize he'd been hit, or one guy who happens to be an ***. There's really no need, IMO, for such things in rec-ball to begin with, as it's supposed to be about the fun.

Quite honestly, the more recball starts looking like team practices, the less appealing it gets. Some fields promote a fun day for everyone, some let things go whichever way the players want (not always the majority, either, sometimes it's the field's team guys who get their way).

You did the right thing. It's just rec-ball, everyone is there to have fun.

Was the hit still on his hopper when he bunkered you? If not, he either wiped it or you never hit him to begin with - so I guess you're in the same boat either way, lol.

If the hit was still there, chances are he didn't feel it. I've been playing for 16 years and there are still occasions where I don't know the tip of my hopper has been hit until later on. Sometimes you just don't feel it, especially if you're rolling your gun on someone.

Like Pump Scout said, if this sort of thing turns out to be the norm at your field, I'd look for somewhere else to play.

The hit WAS still there...he tried to say it was "rub" from the dorito he was at..but it wasn't. The ref from the other side of the field ran over and chewed his *** out saying he saw it his his hopper/feedneck from across the field....there was even a few pieces of shell in the paint lol...it was a clear, thick, circular hit.

^^Sorry to hear that. It sounds like he was just being dishonest. I can't stand playing against people like that. It takes away the meaning in the game.

Why would you think it was a good idea to fill a bunker your teammate just got pinched out of?

Wait, wait, wait. If the ref saw it, why wasn't he pulled?? How was he still able run up on you and shoot you in the back. Sounds like the ref wasn't doing his job. What happened to the ref that you sent over for the paint check?

If the ref from the other side of the field saw it he should have communicated with the other ref instead of just letting it happen.

Sounds like bad reffing more than anything. Just talk to the ref about it and keep on having fun. Like you said, its rec ball.

The phrase "Out on your loader" would have fixed that quickly.

Well, If I'm playing pump I'd just try to shoot their gogs. If I'm shooting a electro, I'd just lay paint on em' until the leave.

I would assume the ref was mad. You stood there for about 2 seconds blasting away while you already hit him? Doesn't sound very nice does it?

Usually I get out even on bounce when training. Because if you're at a tourney, paint will be more brittle that the training paint and you would have been out. Better training imo.
