I got to wis to play most of the time. Nicer people, honest people, friendly players, awesome atmosphere, always have fun in cheese land

It's funny.. that's the first thing I noticed when I watched that video was the semis mixing in with the pumps and no d-bags yelling at each other. I've only been playing pump since late '06 early '07 somewhere during the winter there. I love my mech cockers, my snipers, my older markers (blazer, pgp, pgp2, sterling), and my high end older electros like my LCD Angel and LCD Matrix.

I don't really have as much fun playing with an electro anymore. I love my LCD Angel and LCD Matrix but never really played more then one game each day I bring them to the field. I respect pretty much all players as long as they don't show boat and light kids up. It's really the agg kids that create problems at the field. They play for 1-2 years, get top of the line gear and play open play, then quit. The only other type of people I dislike are the ones who use a hopper and 3 pods a game and just hide behind the trigger. Electro is fine, but that's not needed in open play. They have no skill what so ever and people judge how good they are by how many pods they carry. 99% of the time, the two I mentioned above go hand in hand.

For me honestly paintball is paintball no matter what you use to play with , no matter what style you choose to play . We jus need to except it and stop taking the joy out of it . To me , I love watching a young kid for the first time goin to a field picking up a rental gun and gear , and playing out there on the field and having so much fun with no worries and no cares about what the other people or what their shooting . To see the look of exitement and happiness on that kids face is total bliss . And to hear from that kid how much fun he had and he wants to play again and again . To me guys , that's paintball ! . That's how I felt when I first played and that's how I feel everytime I play . But when you take that away , honestly you're killin the sport . Thanx for your time

I get joy out of shooting 1BPS by the way. Every sport has its elitists, and paintball has plenty cliques to go around. I guess some people just voice their opinions louder than others. I'll play how i like, he can play how he likes, your auntie ruth will play how she likes. That doesn't mean they all have to be a prick about it.

I don't think it has to do with "i only play pump fu" or "i only play semi, pump sucks!" I think its more the players general attitude towards other players/the game. Some people are just dicks.

A month ago I was at SC and hopped on a pick-up game 4 on 4 me and my buddy were both using our semis(ego/dm) the other 2 guys were using sniper2s and all they did was talk **** to us. "Shoot here, shoot there...what are you doing blah blah?"..Just total *******s. We won but they took all the credit like we didn't do anything and then commented that all we do is waste paint and real players play pump. WTF? The mouth on some of these kids is amazing. Between the the two of them they got one person out. People like this is what give pump players their share of crap... It's like the kids who think their hot **** shooting super highend guns decided to play pump and kicked up their ****ty attitude up a notch...

It's not everyone, I've met other pumpers who are very nice and friendly. That was the idea I got when these two asked to play with them. Just spoiled/bad seeds.

/rant off

Haven't read all the thread but here's my two cents. The EGO kills our sport, not hurts it, kills it. I saw fights at 6 out of 8 local tourneys... That's pathetic. If you can't get along with 4 other people go to counsiling. I recently bought a pump and I play pump and a dominantly electro field. I get lit up all the time. Don't care. Cuz I know the people who I play with arnt gonna laugh at me when I walk off the feild with paint behind my ears. I can't beleive other people can fight teamates over stuff that doesn't even matter. Untill we can show the rest of the world that paintball is a fun and safe sport. We can't get it into the olympics or even get magazines in barnes&noble... Lulz. When we start having the guideline that anyone can go buy equipment and have a goodtime with paintball at ANY feild or even MOST feilds, then we can work on promoting the sport. I'm not saying our sport is the only one with these problems. We can't have it this early in it's growth. Football is literally an empire in the US. Maybe it's just the US I live in or the sport. But it's unacceptable. There are good ballers out there I'm lucky to know some. Hope it's on topic. That's my 2 cents call me the dumbest or smartest 15 year old. Idc. Peace out pump hope u get an answer.

Why you must of got shot by a pump , that's why you hate them , hurt the heart to get shot by one . You think playing psp is all skills , try one ballin a guy . See if you got what it takes . Anybody can act like they are good with a semi . But true skills are shown with a pump . You can never know how good of gun fighter you are till you tried doin one ball at a time .

dawt.

First day with a pump i realized how much i needed to work on.. since i couldn't hid behind my paint any longer in tough situations. Now i've become so much stronger in the areas that i could never develop with an electro in my hand.

I played a couple days ago with an electro for the first time in god knows how long. My friends didn't want to let me use my pump because i'm "magical"..so i used a vibe. needless to say i noticed a drastic improvement in my skills and my way of thinking since the last time i've used an electro. Although i couldn't one ball people for **** with an electro.. i could only do it with a pump.. idk why.. maybe it's a sign i should no longer play electro.. lol.

remember people this thread is not about what is better but hating on another style of paintball that is not what you do

and it seems some pumpers in here are hating on semi play

FOR SHAME, you can learn a lot about tuning from a semi

I understand perfectly what you mean. Unfortunately, these segregations and prejudices are made because of many reasons, including players who don't respect the rules, or sometimes simply to increase competivity.
For example, take a look at fighting championships. They do it in weight ranges (Heavy weights, medium weights, etc) and sometimes, Paintball behaves the same (Pumps only, electros only, etc).

Honestly, I play with a semi and don't mind playing against people with pumps or electros. All I care is to play, because that's what I love, that's my passion, and I just want to go and kick some a**. I really don't care if the a** I'm kicking has a pump, an electro, a semi, a slingshot, whatever.

By the way, you can add bows to your list haha, because I've seen "bows only" games (with the new "Airrow" marker).
