This is true.

When dishonest play becomes "part of the game" or "how it is", that is when people should really stop to evaluate the ethics that are being conveyed to each other, and new players more so.

Airsoft had been a great concept but, unfortunately, the same players that make Airsoft a non-viable game are those in which we currently speak of in paintball. Dishonest players have turned the game of Airsoft, which is quite fun if all abide by the rules, into an impossible game of "Did - Did Not" arguments.

I'm not sure when this behavior became accepted as an "industry norm", but this must cease in order to preserve the integrity of our sport. You would not stand at the plate after your third strike, run into the end-zone after being tackled, or lay a hay-maker after the bell rings in boxing... so why should this be treated any differently?

I urge those who are serious in their convictions to uphold the honor of the game to speak out against those who are commit these infractions. If not, I feel that eventually we, the paintball community, will all be guilty by association.


Thanks!

Had to add my agreement here. Anytime someone tells me "everybody wipes at some point" I let them know it is far from the truth. I've played alongside some of you guys and know that you feel the same way I do about playing with honor and knowing when you win it is earned !

This is why when the CRU teams win at local and/or National Events, we can all fully support the achievement since they are fair and honest wins that reflect on the time and effort the team has put in. Cheating essentially negates all of the money, time, and effort that the ethical players have dedicated to the game.

If every team/player operated on these ethics, the sport would continue to grow in ways which we could not fathom.

I would agree. Over the next few weeks we will start to rotate players into positions that are best suited for the time being and work from there. We would like to get a level of comfortableness between the players and their respected positions.

All the kinks will be worked out and it will run like a well oiled machine.
