Tips to become a better player:

Go play paintball

No matter what equipment you have, no matter how many youtube videos you watch or how many how-to threads you read it will never even come close to real experience. You have money for better gear? Play with the stuff you have and spend that money on paint. Go out and play 2-3 weeks in a row both saturday and sunday back-to-back. If you play enough you'll be unstoppable, because you can't buy skill off the shelf.
A new luxe won't make you a better player, but after 30 cases of paint in your old marker you'll be invincible.

And take advice from better players. If somebody tells you that you might play a different position better, don't hesitate to try it. You can always go back if it doesn't feel right.

All you have to do is play against better people.
Trial and error will only make you stronger..
clinics are a waste of good money imo.

what is see in most woods games

is new players bunch up and stay way to far back and try to long ball people.
I learned by running with a group of players during the bigger games and watching them.

first & foremost, Always try to dissect everything that happened in the game & see how you can improve on it. Focus on form & controlling the game while in the game. I see way too many players make a mistake 1 game then turn around & do the same thing the next game without even realizing why they lost.

i dont see what's wrong with "chicken-winging", or atleast while you're in a bunker. but when you're running and gunning, i realize it makes your profile larger, therefore making it easier to get shot. i chicken-wing when im in a bunker to push the bunker in and get really tight.

if im wrong, please clue me in..

I guess I should have been more specific. I am more referring to when someone is grabbing for their pods on their back and sticks their elbow out the side of the bunker for me to give it a little icing with my boomstick.

It's more of a "Keep a tight position when you're behind that bunker." I try to keep my elbows close to my body at all times, which makes it muscle memory for me to keep them close when I'm reloading. That being said pushing the bunker with your elbows is a hugely different story.

Yes i could do that if i wanted to do it the easy way or what i did was take a couple of clinics with pro teams and or players like Ryan Podesta that kind of training is almost invaluable i dont think paintball can be learned from a video or by watching games you need to do it period.

I do it all the time when running and gunning and I've got to say I have never been shot in the elbow. When you factor in the size of your arm vs your entire body it's actually a small percentage.
What chicken wing does give you is a MUCH more stable shooting platform.
