I hate people who play pump only or semi players who hate

I'm Over! pump fascists! and semi fascists

as i was watching this vid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_MkJNuAzRA) i was thinking how in Hawaii we got a nice mix of pump, semi and electro players, and everyone is all in together in having fun and talking story. And it got me thinking why dont i see this environment in other vids or fields i have gone to in the US?

i hear a lot of Stockclass only, Pump only, Semi only, Mech only, Electro only in forums(whose membership makes up of mainly US citizens), its almost like how surfers dont like bodyboarders and vice versa , we only hear that bull**** from guys from Cali BTW. Paintball has a dbaggyness of exclusive culture which i think is mainly due to the anonymity of the internet, Thank god no one in Hawaii really goes to forums or cares what they say, it has kept Hawaii a very inclusive environment for paintball.

if your having fun and if your playing, its all paintball, im stoked on all kinds of guns and people, it helps me get another perspective of mods and tuning that i dont normally see here in Hawaii. If we as pump players succumb to the evils exclusiveness in acceptance of people, guns and ideas, we have lost an ability to think in new ways, which means we have stagnated and have failed to keep evolving which is regression


gotta remember our sport/game began in fun, and thats how we get new players its that contagious fun that builds upon its self, but once you shut that down from excluding people and trying to hurt them, we have shot ourselves in the foot. Gotta keep the fun building and building, grow it, foster it.

there are dicks every where, even in paintball, a game made for fun. hopefully we can lessen the amount but there are always going to be people who think their way of thinking and their opinions are the only way. all people have their own opinions and you should respect that and just leave it at that. i dont see it doing any harm where i am but i am pretty much the only pumper in my area and people respect me as a player

...So let me get this strait. You hate people who are elitist...yet you claim that only Hawaii is the paintball place paintball players aren't like this?

Doesn't sound like a little elitist to you? Should we cut off your food supply and see how much you ***** about 'the mainland?'

but if we leave it alone they can grow and foster as well, we need to engage those counter active ideas!

I actually don't see the attitude when I go to the field, it seems to be more of an online thing which like you said is fueled by the anonymity of forums. I hope it stays online.

The only thing I will say that I do notice is the constant battle between the woodsballers and speedballers. Both seem to think that their way of playing is the best, and the rest suck.

Regarding the video, you are a very entertaining person.

I'm sorry. I work with a guy from Hawaii and so far everyone I've met and/or talked to from there has been a douche.

We have no such problems here in the Midwest, and if we do we take it up on the field and not on the internet. Actually; every time I play with my pumps we seem to earn mad respect from everyone, and actually end up getting people to try it out.

I have never seen any hate between pump/electro/semi everyone here respects me for playing pump and I shoot those who play semi. It's just the circle of life.

I've only ever had one guy get mad at me for using my pump.

We were teamed up and I had yet to beat the learning curve on the Phantom I was using.

Him
"No more pump! We need to win."

Me
"It's my hot body and I do what I want!"

I've got 2 pumps, 2 mech semi, and 1 electro. I try to play with one of each category every weekend.

bro food is not our problem here in hawaii , toilet paper is our concern , you cut that supply , were doomed

i agree with you koa , i wouldnt play paintball if i didnt think it was fun anymore . we need to keep the fun aspect of it alive or we'll just wither up and die

I agree with you Koa. But back in the day, I dont think there wasthe mutual respect most players have now. For me when Im playing a fun day (which is rare) I dont mind mixing it up with everyone. Its all about having a good time. However 95% of the time that Im playing, its either scrimmages or practices and I am exclusively pump only depending what tournament my team is getting ready for.

I only play pump because I can't afford to play semi, or I should say I choose not to spend that much money on electros, but I have no problem with anyone who plays semi. Heck, I played tournament paintball for 4 years and that's all I used. I am just a cheap bastard these days
