Not if you have a good back corner who can watch your *** and give you opportunities with covering fire.

People are saying it will make the D side more dominant, I respectfully disagree. Keep in mind that even though the knuckles aren't there, the D side players still can't be sure where in the snake their opponent is, especially with the elimination of sideline coaching.

Also, the increased crossfield shot opportunities from removing the knuckles means that eliminating the back snake corner player on the break becomes more of a priority. Likewise staying alive and keeping the back snake corner filled become more important. Someone in snake 3 who's a good shot can now easily shoot out the back center and opposite corner guys (depending on the layout of course).

All in all, it seems as though the PSP is moving towards more of a technical game, which is a good thing.

I'd like to think the PSP and Sup'Air are wise enough that they won't let that happen. Maybe they're planning on using some larger bunkers as knuckles instead of just the mini cakes to allow bigger guys to play the snake now?

Ive seen on other sites where people are complaining about "this is why i like nppl" nppl has its place. But if you want a rush, play some x-ball. It sucks for fields, but ive always liked it when its a level playing field and no one knows the field. Thats where you seperate the ballers from the pussies.

I absolutely love change, and knowing that they are gunning for me in the snake corner makes me have to elevate my game.....and bring it.

This is probably the stupidest thing ever. Let's just take all of the athleticism out of the game.

This is the problem with paintball. Everyone thinks that there is a "major" problem with the sport and they hope to "revolutionize" it and change it for the better. NOOO. The problem is ignorant people thinking that they have to change everything when it was perfectly fine.

Let's hope Bud Selig redesigns a baseball field....its been the same for too long so it must obviously need changed.

I don't know how I feel about these new bunkers. I will have to wait until I see them for myself at the field.

He does not have a taller bunker to block out parts of the field to play with - he is exposed 90 degrees when he want to do anything but play the wire.
This is where communication between the back corner and snake player becomes essential. back corner spots and communicates to the snake. Result: Gs.

What everyone fails to realize is it not just the back player, it is the coach talking to the snake player telling him what to do, where to shoot, scoot back, scoot up. The coach has an even higher responsibility.

I seriously, seriously want you to be the first one to play in this snake, just so I can see you explain yourself when you're proven wrong. The back corner can put in one, maybe two guys if he's good. Say one other guy is blocked by bunkers, that's two people that can still blast the snake when he pops up.

EDIT: guy above me is 100% right, coaching snake side is huge now.

You better believe it.

Listen, all of this is in theory. Obviously during a game things just happen naturally. I do see the point about the opposing corner laying down fire over the top, bu I think the ability to see the entire field instead of a pillow makes up for it.

If you can see me then I can see you. Chances are once the word goes out that you entered "Snake X" Ill just start hosing the top of the bunker knowing you will have no other option but to play the tape.

If im using my bunker to my advantage im probably blocking out most of the field and all of the other players but you. Nobody can do anything to stop me if my team still has bodies on the field and there is little to no chance you will get a shot off over the top.

Shooting across the field is a thing of the past now.

Moving to the end of the snake can and only will happen when the opposing corner is eliminated and even then will be sketchy at best.

Nick Brockdorff, I don't know who you are but you continue to impress me with your arguments here in the News section.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
