How to get better thread

Heres a few sources for people wanting to know "How do i....", "whats the best way to...."

The "How To" thread:
http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3136778
-covers how to load, and hold your marker, and slide and dive

Rob Rubin aka Web Dog Radio:
http://www.youtube.com/user/TygerWDR
He covers pretty much everything you can think of

He also has a lot of videos uploaded on Expert Village, i can't find a playlist so heres a link to one of his videos:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw-3SncF39Q
from there you can look in "related videos" for an even bigger sea of knowledge

In the end, you can watch just about as many videos, how to guides, and watch as many people play, but in the end, you have to go out and play.

hope this helps

Keep in mind, no matter how good your equipment is, the difference is YOU. You can win a game with a spyder just as good as with a luxe if you're good enough.
If you have to choose between getting a better gun/upgrade or going to play paintball. Go out and play.

Main advice: DON'T BE AFRAID! Afraid of getting hit (unless someone is using wal-mart paint) afraid of going to find your opponents, afraid of the older players, afraid of players that look better than you, theres no reason to be scared, nothing but the paintballs are going to hurt you and they just feel like a big rubber band sting for a second anyways, also just because a player has an SLS a jersey pants and 2 cases of paint on the table they're using doesn't automatically make them a good player, it just makes them someone who can afford that stuff.

Scrimming against people better than you is the best way to get better. If your playing against people who don't have a clue how to play your not going to get any better.

The first and second link is really important because many of the people want to know that how can they post become a good thread.
So good to see this one.

Best way it to play with good teams and get your *** kicked over and over. You will pick up on things quickly.

Watch the one with the gun video. Also over-bore your barrels use a .692 - .695 when you play also its not the gun that's good its the player. One game I jumped on a team with little kids that had rentals and the other team were shooting egos while I had an ion. We mowed that team over I just gave the kids the right advice.

I'm fairly new again at paintball but my advice to some people I played with this weekend was that once you get shot once your automatically better. Knowing that it hurts less than you thought makes it easier to actually try and play more and improve.

The best way to get better is by getting out there on the field playing. Don't freeze up (move) and don't be afraid it doesn't hurt to get shot. Play for the fun of the game. Experience will come in time

Also, consider all criticism any player gives you. If you block out constructive criticism your not gonna get any better.
