Looking to build 5-man team, Fort Paintball, north/east Dallas area

Ironyusa and I are looking for 2-3 players to form a new team in the area. We're hoping to play a local 4-man in the Greeneville area, as well as local DFW 5-mans and hopefully STAR next year. Requirements:
  • Reliable
  • Mature
  • Preferably age 25-35
  • Fairly athletic and a skilled player (obviously)
  • Gainfully employed and willing to play every other weekend or so

We typically play/practice at Fort Paintball in Parker, Tx. Post here and message me or ironyusa for more details.

I have some contacts in the industry and have already found a pretty good source for discounted paint. I may be able to get various other parts at a discounted rate as well... I'm working on it.

I don't think we'll be pursuing a specific manufacturer sponsorship so you're free to use your own gear which will keep the price reasonable. (Most "sponsorships" primarily benefit the manufacturer and not really the team.)


If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact Praetor or myself.

What kind of experience do you already have on the team and what division players are you looking for

I can't speak for Praetor, but I have ~16 years experience with a few breaks due to life events. I used to play pretty high level (prior to APPA rankings). I think we're aiming to start with d5 events and see where it'll go from there.

I played for about four years, from 99-03 and just got back into it this spring. Back then, I played for a couple novice teams, placed fourth and third in a couple tournies in Forney in the novice division (D ratings didn't exist back then, that I know of), and was a regular at Fun on the Run nightball for several seasons. I'd agree with ironyusa that I can see us comfortably contending w D5 teams and moving up from there.

i may be interested in jumping in sometime. You may not hav interest as i havent played in 10 years....(yea i know). But im in lavon and fort will be my field of choice. Just finally set back up with a few guns and all my gear in place.

As far a background, i started at 15 reffing and playing at official paintball, played for 5 years then got out for the marines. Now im out and a professional firefighter looking to get back into it. Ill be up there friday or saturday to put air through all my guns for testing if anyone is going to be around.

Sweet, where is that going to be?

Also, what do you shoot and what position/s do you typically play?

Mansfield paintball. I'l l tell you what guns I have as for right now I'll play with them all to get used to them once again. But a cocker, automag rt, Shoebox shocker, and an axe. Back in the day I played front/mid. But im 6 ft 220 so front is probably a past item

Well the tourney turned out well. My team got 1st, ended up on a few 3v1 against me and managed to live through the time limit while eliminating at least 2 of theirs. Fell in love with my rt though. The beast was ripping.

I'd possibly be interested. Just came back into the sport this year after a 7 year hiatus, but I've been playing pretty regularly. I'm stationed at NAS JRB(AR Marine) and live nearby, but I wouldn't mind making the drive. Shoot me some details on a likely schedule, fees, etc.

Btw, I run an Ego 11, rotor, 68/45
