I think on speedball courses your statement is more appropriate.
this is true. it was obnoxious playing in the thick, viny, forest section of my local field using a stock class marker. on the speedball course or the man made woods field is where i excelled with the stock class marker. otherwise it was too easy for rambo with his A-5 to sit in the bush and mow people down. i didn't like that style of play, so i tended to stick to the clear areas when i played on our local woods field.
about the only example i can think of i was glad i had a mech compared to an electro in woodsball was the time i jumped into a waist height puddle (half our field floods every winter and spring). the reason for doing that was nobody was man enough to even step in a puddle that went past their shoe/boot sole. i caught everyone off guard and shot 3 people and surrendered the rest.
although i suppose on a speedball field a player could just as simply dive wrong into some standing water that's just deep enough to do some damage to an electro. although our speedball field had drainage, so it was never an issue.
