When I play pump, it's pump vs. semi. Even when I am playing against only pumps, autotrigger makes it feel like I am playing against semis anyway. The only difference between the two, is that one group has to jack their gun off.

Pump vs. Semi. There just isn't a big pump scene here, which sucks because it's crazy fun! It's all good though, it's nice to play some recball and not catch a bunch of crap for overshooting, or being too aggressive, or scaring the newbies etc.

Actually, I'm just about to head over to the GA state forum and ask if there's a pump day somewhere...a man can dream.

There are plenty of GA pump players. Since the state is so big, it is hard to get everyone to 1 place. I personally know at least 10-15 pump players in the Atlanta area. Getting the 10-15 pump players to agree on a date and time is hard to do.

pump vs pump is def. harder. CFOA added a pump series for us and its def alot harder playing regional pvp vs showing up to the random local vent and blasting away sloppy semi players

Played pump with "new" 2003 autococker. Was shooting ropes. Okay, was shooting nice. Thing sticks up like a periscope, though, with a Rotor on it.

usually play with one other pump guy at my field we team up take on semis in airball/speedball. 1st helps with snapshooting when u go back to semi playing, 2nd, felling of accomplishment when u gog someone with one ball, 3rd helps me play more aggresive for somereason (idk why cant explain) but i do so i do the bunkering on people not get bunkered with pump. 4th save so much money on paint when i play hopper ball.

Jungle Island also has a strong pump community too! Management is trying to organize a pump only day during the week if we get enough interest. We even have kids that are middle school and high school age who rock pumps every week. So exciting to see that style of play getting popular.

Would your answers change IF you had a CHOICE of what to play. personally i would rather shoot semi guys all day long, they are usually easier to beat. pump vs pump whether its turf or woods is hard

I play on a 5 man speedball team with the only pump and I use empire sniper with a empire reloader b and. 50/4500 and love it I carry 420 rounds and always have some left!!! I play mid. Our fronts goes out with 720, and the other mid and back carry a case between them there are times when they run out easily yet we average the same amount of kills. The main difference is when running pump u really learn to be accurate as to running semi

I play pump vs semi cause it helps me become a better semi player. Also the fact that I know nobody at my field that actually have a pump so semi was the only option.

The part that I enjoy most when I am using a pump vs. a semi player, is when they are just spraying my bunker...all I can hear is the constant rain of the paintballs hitting my bunker or whizzing by me...then I snap...and all the paint from the other player just stops.

That is the best feeling!!!

That is exactly the thrill of it all! Someone shooting 15 bps against your 2 bps pump and the second you snap out they tuck back in. Another great feeling is when you bunker them with your pump. Awesome feeling

I typically play semi v pump, but they dont take me lightly as I have proven myself/ earned respect at my local field.

I think it is fun to shoot semis and I love the satisfaction of shooting a player out with 1 ball. Great feeling for me.

I also love pump v pump games. It is def more of a challenge and I love to challenge myself against other great pump players. I wish we had a huge scene here in Indy, but I have to travel a bit to get those games in. I think the pump v pump games mean more and do more for me personally than playing semis.
