this kid talks about how skilled he and his gear are and actually CRITICIZES how rental players play!!!!
money has little to do with it. I know alot of friends who say they'd never play paintball because it's not worth getting all ****ed up and shot up and have to spend $80 doing so.
I can't say with 100% accuracy but generally all the *******s are the 15 year olds with brand new gear.
Th majority of tourney players are pretty nice people. You won't really see them at recball fields ****ting on rental players. They have higher priorities, like practicing against good players who they'll be playing at an event in 2 weeks.
It's usually days I play recball where I don't have practice and my friends who don't play want to play paintball with me or we don't have practice and my teammates and I play recball and do dumb **** like use pocket hoppers, musket ball, nxl ramping at capped at 5bps, lay on the ground like snipers, do somersaults/side rolls while playing, etc.
We just generally dick around for fun because regardless of whether we try or not, we are still considerably better than everyone we play that day. We know it, and people know it after a game or two. I don't have to talk **** to rentals for people to see I'm good.
If there's some kid with brand new gear running his mouth and being a dick to rentals, I'm usually a dick to that kid. Something simple like "Your gear looks brand new, did your mom buy it this morning? If you were playing better your gear wouldn't be clean." usually shakes their false-confidence pretty hard.
When recballers approach me and ask how did I do this or how was I able to pull that off, I'm nice and generally tell them how and why it works.
tl;dr; tourney players are nice, 15yr olds who feel self entitled are the dickheads. Don't let it ruin your day.
