The recruiting strategies are different though, I try to keep the High Rollers roster as much Military related personnel (Service Members, Family Members and Military Retirees) first and foremost where as Insidious recruits from the entire population. We do an interview verses a tryout because we can teach paintball skills we cannot teach personality. Since we work with kids and Fort Drum FMWR we look for personality traits that blend in well with our mission. We are successful because we have merged into a family unit and build upon and draw from each otherís experience both on and off the field.
Realistically you canít go wrong with any team you play with because in the end you are still playing paintball. Even if you decided to start your own team the High Rollers will be there to help if you would like us to. It is all about paintball.
Kris and I are more serious about moving up the tournament ranks (playing national tournaments, CXBL, NAPL, etc.) than our other guys but one of our main goals is to build a lasting and competitive local team.
We have two prerequisites- be actively involved with the team (we've all become pretty close friends in short order) and don't be a total asshat. We're all radically different people (I'm pretty outgoing and boisterous while Jake may only know 50 words total) but at the end of the day everyone's a good guy and cares about both the team and local paintball.
Kris (koolcrss on 'nation) and I play a few times a week most weeks and we practice as a team every Sunday. Feel free to hit either of us up if you're looking to come out and play
