while im against bonus balling, i have to agree with this statement, while an apology or at least a my Bad would have been nice, it is no way owed, its one thing if he caught you off guard and railed those shots in your side while you were looking another way but he was making an aggressive move to ( I know its not really bunkering) bunker you out, which by the fact that the ref was seen in the vid standing next to the player ( at least i assume hes a ref) indicates that its allowed by the field to do so since no reprimand or indication of wrong doing was given. he was against an opponent that at least from what i saw in the video was a competent player not some first time renter. was it more shots then needed probably, Im not trying to make excuses for the player but dont really see it as a big deal either.
Cool, someone thinks I'm a competent player! Thanks for that and I see your point in your post.
The rules aren't explained at this field so I want to tell the refs to give a short safety briefing. Some common understanding has to be established for casual/new players about bunkering/surrendering.
I can't speak for this guy either. But what I get as the guy on the receiving end is "Ouch that f-in sucked and why did you need to shoot me 5+ times?" What I also get is this guy wanted to prove something and he doesn't know where the line is. I really do believe this guy would have lit up your little brother or sister or girlfriend the same way he did to me. That's what makes me bitter about this.
I play paintball to have fun. I'm glad this only happened once that day. I'm never going to play tournaments and I don't want to play someone with a tournament mentality.
