the one problem w/ is that this is more of a scenario guide i dont know how your local woodsball field is set up my mine has no teams at all if yours does and is big enough to longball (mine isn't i can hit a pair of googles on the other side easy) then this guide would work damn i wish there was a bigger woodsball field in the bay area nice guide tho
Long balling wasn't mentioned in the guide at all... tribs did a great job of writing up some of the most crucial elements of pump in the woods and it seems to have been simply overlooked but take a few minutes and carefuly read through it trust me you can pick up a lot of good stuff, that's what it's there for!
And as far as free for all... in 10 years i can honestly say i can count on one hand the number of time's i've played it. Two times were at skirmish paintball on a field with a giant red penis shaped bunker in the center called the red rocket or "dog boner" by the local players
And every one started at it, because it is dead center of the field... the ref starts counting at 10 and when he hits one and blows the horn it's fair game... it was actually pretty fun and i won both times there i took out at least 2 people to start the game then picked the rest off one by one.
Outside and my local fields the only time we'll play a free for all, which is rare is at the end of the game if there is 5 people and we all want to play, and theres not 2 that much better players who'd want to go 2 vs 3... we'll play free for all... but we have only done this twice and both times it was pretty lame, most people shot eachother out and the one guy who sees no action wins lol
And as far as the aiming up tip people.... it's not just long balling. there are two ends of the spectrum in my opinion, the 2 extremes are, very high long arched longballs, and shooting straight on. Now in flat woods the longest ball i can hit i'd say is around 265 feet, maybe if we are playing around 300 FPS. I'd say at 280-285 FPS i'm able to hit at 250 feet but that's absolute range. The other extreme is shooting flat, and i'd say at 280 it's effective range to aim straight as the person and hit them is about 75 feet where it's gonna be higher chest and up if you aim direct at the head.
Now the in-between is where people lack the aiming up. It can be used to hit shots at the 150s where the balls simply won't make it by shooting straight at some one on flat ground, but your also not going to be perched back launching mortars into the sky to hit them.
I'd say i've gotten very good at longballing and on a good day in ideal conditions i had a 6 foot human target at 200 feet that i was able to hit 27 times out of 30, which for math guys is 90% so i'd say at that range i am very deadly with a long ball, but that's not my maximum range, although it is generally on flat ground the farthest i will ever think about engaging a target
In big games and scenarios where you see people with apex's and there are towers on hill tops, and now with first strike rounds and all that crazyness, you are going to see some extremely ridiculous shots people, I'm talking about pushing over 300 feet easily if you've got a big enough field there will be a lot crazier things happening with long distanced shots (and an ending note i don't know why i added this very last part... just felt the need to say it)
