Question Any tips for 3-man beginners tourney?

Hey eveyone, I am looking to start into some 3 man tourneys this fall and was curious how you think it would be best to gameplan and practice/drill for 3 man? The rules should mirror PSP style race to series rules. Thanks for any assists.

Live behind your guns never stop shooting. learn to shoot & load well, learn to get a kill or two on the break, obviously capitalize on a kill if you get it, keep up good communication, develop a few different game plans you guys can mix it up with, play paintball have fun shoot people!

*edit*
Off the field everyone has a job no one sits around. Couple guys getting air everyone loading pods & discussing what went well or what when bad & decided what to do next game.

One thing I will tell you is that most new teams don't scout or watch the other teams they are playing. Trust me, If you go watch teams that you are supposed to play in their early games, you will know what to expect from them. What routes they run, where they lane, how aggressive they play, what positions they push, and just generally what kind of game they are bringing. If you have this knowledge of the teams you are playing it will give you a huge advantage. But the most important thing you need to focus on is HAVING FUN! Good luck man and have a good time

I will be trying to find either a 3 or 5 man low division team for the CFOA/PBC series in NC. Don't know anyone that plays paintball there yet... Probably won't start playing tournaments till next year.

I played in another 3 man last month

I have a 3 & 5 man setup. When you play 3 man there is such a big deal on the first out. The last time we played a 3v tourney we got raped the first 1/2 day. Then we switched up and did pretty well. It was our first time together and we were a little over our heads but we worked it out.
Big differences:
We overloaded one side. Don't care witch but what worked the best was overload snake. Other teams were doing it dorito. If you go snake tell your snake man not to shoot anything but the corner till his back player calls the shot for him.
One down on the break sucks, you almost can't recover if the other team is any good. Play slow. don't try to take everything off the break. wait till you have a side bunkered down then move. We did our best moving into the corners. Heavy paint on the break for 20-30 seconds countering their moves. Shoot opposite corners. The last NPPL I went to was amazing how 2 corners playing cross field could hold 4/5 men back.
Develop your own lingo, talk non stop,
I know it's crappy but there was a sht load of wiping, I don't wipe but I won't call myself out in a tourney, I just stop shooting and try to be a distraction till I'm checked.

Good luck man
