+ $60-$100 every time one goes to play. Gear is not the most expensive part about paintball...playing is.

People don't have money to spend like they used to. The avid paintballer could save close to 500 bucks a month if they took a break. For some people nowadays paintball is the difference between feeding your family and not.

Massive fields/teams would be fun to watch on TV, 100 plus yard fields with tons of bunkers, limit it to gravity fed hoppers only(like 7-8bps max) or maybe a paint cap and you would get tons of movement

and end the retarded firing modes semi or full auto only

What killed paintball was e-guns shooting insane speeds. It made a lot of people to afraid to play, and even more think it was just to expensive.

Next was all the 15 year old know it alls. Nothing chases away adults faster. It is the reason I quit.

I like the 15 year old know-it-all's. it feels wonderful to eliminate them.

seriously though, thanks to this shoddy economy, i haven't played paintball in almost two years. once i realized money was tight and bills were in danger, i had to quit. so i played one more day of speedball, pulled off a 5-on-1 and just retired.

call it a "permanent hiatus". System Of a Down did, and they came back!

Im 14 and I captain a successful tournament team. Not to be a "know it all" but im respected as a player and a person. You know players like me will be the adult player in the next decade so if you constantly put down the "15 year old know it alls" then paintball will die.

You are misunderstanding.
We dont mind kids playing paintball. What we do mind is 15 year olds coming in your face telling that they know better then the older gen.
We dont like kids bragging about that the got a rotor, and asking why you shoot a ****ty Halo and so on...

hey now, leave the rotor outta this

but yeah kid, we are cool with young ballers who do well and also behave like stand-up gents, what we have a problem with is like he said: bite-sized wiseguys who think they know more than you. it only takes one ball to get someone out, whether it's an ego with a rotor or a spyder with a revvy, too many kids (and a lot of adults) don't seem to grasp that.

The worst ones didn't even play. They would sit in the staging area and talk about how great there gun is.

Then there was the ones going around saying I'm a tourney player to anyone that listened. Most weren't even on a real team. They would play in some local event 2 times a year.

I don't expect paintball to survive, when I started it was considered a rich mans hobby. It went to being thought of as a nerd hobby then was main stream for a few years. It then went back to a nerd hobby, and now it is thought of as a hobby for nerdy little kids or adults nerds that never grew up.

you're right, but only to a point.

Paintball still has every single one of those attributes, depending on who you talk to. every time i meet someone, i never know which of those traits they are gonna assume. and i feel like it's been that way for the last decade.

it all comes down to this:

not open-minded or just really old = "childish war game"

almost but not really open-minded = "nerdy war game"

slightly in touch with whats going on in society = "i've heard of that... not a sport tho"

better in touch with whats going on in society = "cool, so its a sport... and do you guys all play in the woods?"

has been exposed to tournament paintball in some way = "cool, so its a sport... and do you guys all play in the woods?"

attended Huntington Beach and watched finals = "cool, so its a sport... and do you guys all play in the woods?"

is in the 50 dorito = "cool, so its a sport... and you guys all play in the woods?"

I took about a 7 year hiatus and the game is mostly the same but the people and attitude of some of the players seems to be pretty bad. I remember back years ago watching the nppl in Denver and having a blast, you could barley find a place to sit it was so busy. But it seems that those days are behind us. Whenever i tell anyone i like to play paintball they look at me like, "Oh so you wear camouflage and pretend your in the army."

Also it seems that the rampant cheating of the professionals doesn't help the sport to be taken seriously. Sad really. . . .

To put this shortly, tl;dr.

I consider the sport of paintball like a socially acceptable fight club. People who know about it are involved however they choose. People who don't know about it.. we know how that goes. They are blind to it, deaf to our words, and numb to the thoughts of people running around with hundreds of dollars in gear; legally shooting each other repetively. We as a unified club, paintballers, appreciate the conversations we share. We enjoy going to the fields and understanding the constantly changing and developing situations behind each bunker. We do these things because we love something others don't understand. The more you involve yourself in the lifestyle of paintball, the more you will notice it's not "dying." It's just become our own personal escape from the day to day grind we each live through. It may not be mainstream, or advertised nationally on television, but if you thought about it.. Would you really want it to be that way? Would you really want it to become something that everyone is doing?

I don't.

the first rule about paintball is you do not talk about paintball.
