I've gotten so tired of getting shot while trying to surrender people, I just quit trying. 9 out of 10 times I get right up on them, stick my barrel a foot away from them, yell "surrender!", and they turn around and start shooting. I can't think of any good stories right now except for a recent one. I was playing rec on the tireball field and there was one guy left on the other team. I decided to just bunker him and get him out. Well, I stayed out a little ways so it wouldn't hurt as bad, and I only hit him maybe twice. He decided I was being a jerk though and ran up with his little Spyder and shot me in the back on the knee. It hurt like heck and I think they tested his marker and he was shooting hot (300 something). That's all I can think of right now

When I was just a lil 14-15yrs old.. around 2002-2003.. myself and a group of 4 other friends went to a feild.. and while waiting for a group of recs and a ref to get going some guys from chicago aftershock invited us to play a 5 of us vs 4 of them while they waiting for their 5th guy to show.. so of course we did.

off the break I charged hard for the snake, got there and popped a front and back player and both wiped I went from sooooo pumped to broken hearted and was pretty much pushed away from ever wanting to play with "those tourny.kinda guys'.. I know better now that not all do it but not then

Last year, we had these guys at our field. They would play on or wipe in practice sometimes, and had really bad attitudes. They aren't around though anymore thankfully Generally, most of the speedballers I play with are awesome people though.

I was reffing a game with my friends on speedball. (We're all speedball players not nubs) One kid pointed at his sandana/head wrap and shouted "Am I hit?!" And may I note: on his head wrap exactly where he pointed was an orange spot from the graphics or picture on it. And from like 3 feet away I said he was hit.

Well, he wasn't hit and he got really pissed. What he didn't realize was that there where 2 people running down to bunker him. One on each side. S chances are I probably saved his *** lol. He was last anyways.

I hate that. 2 guys charged up the side when I was playing Saturday. I lit up both of them and they continued to play, then bragged about it. Those ****ing *** holes. If they weren't sponsored by the field I would of called them out.

Would have gave me more reason to call them out. If my field sponsor found out anyone on our team was cheating, they would be kicked off the team. Our owner does not like to get a bad name for his team.

There more of a team that uses the feild's name. Like if the field was Storm paintball, the team would be storm paintball

The worst situation I've been in as a ref was calling someone out who shot a kid for a few seconds on full auto with an X7 then getting it turned to me. So throughout the rest of the day the dick would always shoot at me. I got my revenge when I got his *** with uncapped PSP when I got around to playing

My worst situation as a player was when I got hit twice on the shoulder and started walking to the deadbox only to get lit up by some rentals who were at the back. I guess having my hand up and being halfway into the deadbox means that I'm the priority target :/

I had gotten shot out in a big game of rec-ball,just standing on the sidelines with my gun set down on the ground chatting it up with the other dead players. I saw a young rental player's mask fall off near the middle of the field and instinctively took off running at him while screaming "MASK! MASK! MASK!" Players from both teams light me up as I'm running and players from the kid's team are still shooting at me when I dive on top of him and shield his face. The refs call the game dead and try to get everyone to stop shooting. I walk off the field just covered in hits with the refs thanking me.

I know it's not my job to help the refs and probably made it worse by running and screaming but hey,better safe than sorry.

As a referee, I always appreciate it when the customers help me out. Sometimes its hard for one person like me to control 30 some people, so help is always awesome.

If a player purposely hits me like that as a referee, I'd instantly throw him out

Yea wearing colors like yellow or orange is never a good idea because typically those two colors are not allowed in most leagues because that is what fill the paint is. And it's not like it was a tourney, just practice, so there is always another game.

Worst thing I've seen happen was last weekend I was just watching/reffing a game of like 5v5 rentals. It was like 4:45 so there wasn't too many people left.
Then I hear a kid crying. Me and the ref look behind throat he net and they were talking about him getting shot in the eye.
The look the ref gave me was priceless. I'm not sure if he fired a paintball, or if it was air, I don't think a paintball was fired, as he was able to walk away.


Defiantly the most scariest!

One time there was this guy who did not speak English and he ran all the way across the field getting hit multiple times then proceeded to shoot all of our team as we shot him many more times(id say he walked of with about 50 or so hits). Every one was yelling at him but he did not understand.

overall not good.

Yea I've had the same problem with customers like that who don't speak english. It's impossible to get them under control when they can't understand you.

Same thing happened to me. He then was out of bounds shooting at me. Thankfully the refs took his gun away

I love refs sometimes. Some aren't aware of the rules at my field, because they have never played before. (Recreational, not FA, I'm in AZ)
Edit: FA is another field.

The worst I've ever had was when we were playing capture the fort and I was defending. I got shot out inside the little house, and walked out the back with my gun in the air. As I left the back of the house, I got lit up from rentals who didn't seem to understand (or were just acting on their instincts) that my gun in the air meant that i was out. I got hit nearly 10 times, once in the neck and all up my side. I yelled out "I'm already out" and they stopped, but It always stings to take an unexpected one in the neck while not playing.

I think all refs need to have playing experience. Having a ref that has never played before just doesn't make sense to me.

Yea, or I just love it when rec players will shoot as me (as a ref) when I'm reffing when we have yellow caution tape lines marking the boundaries, which I am outside of, in a yellow and black striped shirt that says ref on it, and without a gun in my hand, and they just continually shoot at me when I'm yelling and waving at them saying that I'm the referee, and then I'm forced to take their gun or pull them out of the game.

Worst situation for me: Going to surrender a young kid I was on the opposite side of the bunker he was in. I knew he was there, he did not know I was there. I went over the top to surrender him thinking I'd be nice because he was like 10 and obviously new and he whipped his gun up and hit me in the face with it while wildly shooting. He came very close to shooting me under my mask and also managed to flip my mask partly off with his barrel. I'm really surprised I didn't lose any teeth or eyes.

I've decided everyone from now on is getting bunkered.

Worst thing I saw a ref had to deal with was an annoying 12 year old kid in head-to-toe Dye C12 gear with a DM12 and all that walk out the back of a field at the start of the game, crawl under the net, walk all the way around the parking lot, and crawl back under the net on the opposing team's side where he promptly shot them all in the back. They kicked him out but because of his stupidity the owner had a real fun time trying to calm down the large group on the other team who was not very happy about the shenanigans. I think they all left. Was like 10 people.
