I really like Valken paint, Redemption and Graffiti are my favorite to shoot.
It often depends on how far you are from the factory as well, I know GI paint is utter trash here, but a large percent of tournament teams shoot GI.
It's also going to depend on how you intend to use it, for speedball type games you will want a brittle paint with good break-ability. In the woods you will want something with a bit of a thicker shell that will make it through the twigs and branches without breaking.
All you can do is try out pant and find the one that A) is regularly available to you and B ) Is allowed at your field and C) suits your needs

How well can your marker handle brittle paint.
How much money you're willing to spend.
How fresh it will be from the factory in comparison to where you live.
That being accounted for, I normally prefer Empire and RPS paint, mostly due to the fact I get discounts on them. Marbalizers I found to be nice if your gun cannot handle super brittle paint, and Ultra Evil is great if it can. For general use/minor tourney's/practices, I favor RPS Premium or Empire Custom Blend (same thing, just different color fill/shell). I do like the new Dye paint, however, though I believe it to be nostalgia on my part.
I have used GI 5 star once, and I liked it as well.
But it's Empire and RPS for me. Just not All-star. I hate All-Star.

The freshest paint you can get your hands on.
And in most cases, you won't really get a say. The field/event will dictate what you can buy.
