Yuck with the drug talk but I am a parent who buys some nicer stuff for my kids to play with. In fact I paid more for their setups then my own, in order to encourage them playing paintball. (I figure it is something we can do together) That said as you can see from my sig, neither has a CSL or anything close. But my youngest does have a shocker for his first marker and he did save up for half. I covered the rest and some adjustments. He may even get an eigan bolt for Christmas. As far as an Ion, seems like a fine first marker, that son likes it very much. I have even switched to a Phantom to cut my paint costs so we can get out and play more, don't hate life is to short. Do try and get all those newbees playing because the more who play the more fun it will be.

Why are we upset at the kid with new gear that we either can't afford ourselves or worked hard to get the money. There is a kid at by local field whose parents have made a gun whore. He is always walling around trying to sell a gun that he is tired of for full retail price. I have seen him pocket that cash right after a deal. The last time he asked me to buy his spire with no speed feed for $200 right after It's release, I told him to get away from me. The next time he was hocking his crap in between rec ball all day. I made a point to inform his mom who didn't have a clue. To into tattling but selling gear you didn't buy and keeping the cash....wow what a douche.

Honestly I have come across more of the kids with all the newest gear who were really good, so I understood why they had all the nice stuff. But I have meet a kid who it was his first day wearing all the nicest stuff and he couldn't lane worth ****, he just stayed at home and did nothing, so I hate it when parents spoil their little kids, and make them think they are already a member of dynasty and act like the greatest and blame me for our team loosing. So in short they have terrible attitudes.

YOU are the reason I hate noob kids. Retards? expand your vocabulary. You arent tearing anyone up, youre just trying to sound cool on the internet.

I'm a little jealous, but I usually don't mind unless they are absolutely terrible and make no effort to get better.

One such kid was at the field I go to a a couple months ago. All he would do was sit either at home or when there were only 2 or so people left on either team, he MIGHT get bold and move to a back corner. One game I was yelling at him to move up to get a guy in the snake, and I ended up running halfway around the field to win the round.

In brief, if they know the game, aren't cocky or annoying, and don't play like absolute **** -- I played better than the kid with my ****ty 8 year old Kingman Spyder Sonix mech -- then I don't mind them.

It's just the general stereotype that all kids with nice gear are *******s.

wait so you have been using an extcy that your parents bought you, and now your getting an axe that your parents or some other family member will buy you after just a year and a half? YOU are in fact the spoiled kid that this very thread was created to talk about. Congrats

You're one of those kids. It doesn't matter how good your gear is; it's your attitude that separates you from us and "those kids."

It's Because people mistake skill for good gear. And if there is something everyone loathes it's a poser.

Christian's rec ball rules...

1) only shot rental players if you have to. They are civilians in my world.

2) Target the pump players first. If you play pump, you have some skill and its an accurate marker.

3) Electrics are king. If a kid can lane, shoot a long shot, or take a bunker out of play, HE (or she) is the focal point to watch while running to a point. Change you target accordingly and take cover as far forward in the break.

4) Kids that don't deserve their markers hide behind home and blind fire. I've been shot by my own teammate in the back 3 different weekends this year because someone doesn't know they have to AIM a gun or how to.

That's it, don't shot me when I'm on your team and we are good. I like kids that have Empire markers. I do like the custom guns and admire the pump players. I don't hate the players or the new gear. I usually check put the Spire this way but still keep my rotor.

Keep coming out kids.

The point is to shoot everyone on the opposing team. I'm not going to prolong a game so that a renter can feel better about him/herself.

A pump is no more accurate that any other gun, and people are not magically more skilled just because they have a pump.

Thank you for posting what I was too lazy to. All dat quoting nd stuf. Aint nobuddy got fo dat.
Also, that whole post didn't really pertain to the rest of the thread.
Also, I think we've covered all the bases in this thread. Let's cast into Mordor now.

We don't always agree but on these two things we do

You know, I think it comes down to the fact, that we don't think they have the skill nor deserve to own a marker like they do. Those kids think it comes down to which gun they have, but I think it comes down to skill. I can take a Spyder Pilot ACS and go own some 12/13 year old kid with a DM12 or DM13 or Luxe or Ego. I've been playing recreationally for about 4/5 years, and a lot of people think, just because I have a beginner's gun, that I'm a bad player. It does not come down to the gun/marker. It comes down to the player. One of those higher end guns, are practically useless for those spoiled 12/13 year old kids.

At the rec fields, I keep my mouth shut. Anybody who talks smack due to having a good gun, or is dressed like they've played for a long time, I'm not going easy on them.

I never had good gear when i was a kid. If i become a dad i will buy them good gear because i dont want them having the experience i had. I look back and wonder why i stuck with the sport.

I think the problem is that people are quick to judge any young kid with a nice gun.

Whether the kid bought it himself or his parents bought it for him, you shouldn't hate on him for being fortunate enough to have it. A lot of these kids as y'all have said are spoiled brats but not all of them are. I'm just saying don't hate until the kid gives you a reason to hate. If the kid turns out to be a spoiled brat that looks down on everyone and doesn't respect his gear, hate away.
