I'm not saying that intensity is bad, but there's a pretty clear line that separates the type of intensity that comes from a love of the game, and the intensity that makes everyone think you're two steps from being a serial killer.
True that. I like to think I have gun, goof off, and yet, shoot those guys out semi effortlessly lol

if you own them to bad then they wont have fun and wont want to play paintball anymore, you got to make it fun for them. the first time i went out, it was a ****ty day and there was only a team there, me and my friends and to play them all day and they didnt take it easy on us, i didnt get anyone out i remember and was shot like 2-3 times each out. but i still ended up playing because i like to be the best i can be out of anything i do, and i dont like people beating me

Younger kids seem to be quite annoying. Just this sunday, we had a walk on group of about 40, 10 of them being a group of kids around the ages 8-10, I think? Anyway, they struggled with the concept of keeping your mask on, as well as barrel bagging. Unfotunetely, me and my team (only 3 of us) were put on their team, along with 7 other kids who had rental guns. This brings me to my next point, of what pisses me off.... Refs not being able to distinguish good players from inexperienced players, and make teams even accordingly. We were thrown up against 20 more players, so number wise we were even, but out of those 20 players, 8 of them were in a group that comes every weekend, decked out in paintball pants, jerseys, fast shooting guns (Like my team of 3) as well as some other assorted groups of experienced geared players. So in all, about 15 of our players were in casual clothing, with a rental Tippman98, while as 0 of them were using a rental gun. Not only that, but we had the little kids. After being the last survivor on my team, taking out 2, then getting lit up in the back from 5 feet away, I ripped off my white band on my gun and changed teams. Mind you, this was after we nicely complained about the teams and asked for them to be made more even, for we had lost all those games so far in that day. For some reason, the refs gave us attitude about this, and wouldn't budge.

Over shooting newb players, bunkering newb players really gets my goat. In fact I will often swap out my electronic for a mech if a lot of "new" folks are playing at our field, which is often the case.

Last fall, at a scenario game, a full family reunion showed up to play. We were all like "UGggh", watching the experienced players start to remove tanks from their DM 12's and grab pump markers. You just don't want to hurt people that 1. don't have a clue what is about to happen, and 2. discourage folks from ever coming back.

When 2 players shoot each other at practice almost at the same time and then argue about it all day. Just both walk off and play the next game.

The people who come on the field for rec ball that act like they hate everybody and its them against the world. Its poisonous to small fields in small communities. If you play an expensive hobby with any fourm of passion then it should be the opposite.

Douchebags.

This covers the following:

- People who treat new players like crap
- People who bunker kids during rec games (unless everybody is semi-experienced and agrees upon it... all you're doing is ruining their good time most likely)
- People who act like they are the hottest commodity on the planet...

and the best sub-group of all, cheaters. I hate people who purposefully bonus ball others (I don't mean 3-4 extra, I mean like putting a lane on you as you try to get out of the way and don't let up)... I did that one time to a friend of mine who I shot in the face as he dove in the snake and he wiped it.

As he was walking off I put about 30 extra balls into his back. He quit cheating though

You sir are great! Even though it sucks to not play with your favorite gun you, for the sake of the game, swap over to something else to keep it fun.

So glad someone else feels this way, all the experienced players should try to make the PB community a welcoming one, not self-destructive.
