Never Quit! I look forward to meeting you in the future. Start barrel tagging? Buy a pistol? Go to a new field if this one bores you.

Possibly, try another hobby for a while.
Just whatever interests you.


Probably will. I'm buying a kaos and calling it good.

well there's three things you can do about this

1: try a different hobby

2: look really hard to see if there are any good fields around you

3: suck it up and play

I did i played and did my best to ref at hurlburt for about three years, let me tell you it is a chore. I Live in orlando now, and i play on the UCF squad, ( which we are not doing bad at all right now btw 6th and 5th in our first two NCPAA tornaments). but one thing i can tell you is yes they are douche bags and you almost have to be one back to them off the field to deal with them, but if you want i have some good friends that play up there. they are not milsimers by any means and they are out there every weekend, they are great guys, i hung out with them. Austin goes out there with his girlfriend and takes another kid out there every weekend. but he his supper chill, and if you want as well i know the guy who runns the place really really well, Stick, possibly the nicest old man i have ever meet, but he always helped me out. ( gave me 1000 community service hours for working for him wile i lived there). but if you want to give it a shot, the more and more i go out there the less douche bags there are if its been a while since you have been i suggest you give it another shot.

Never, ever, lose hope. I can go to my local field any time I want, but I don't like the refs there, so I go with people in Long Island or Upstate whenever I have the chance cause they're a lot funner. I would either say find another field, or try and get better than the other players. Better gear doesn't mean they're better than you. So get out there and make THEM quit.


In all honesty, I could beat most of the kids at my field. I play with a pump gun, that's why.


I don't understand. If you're playing pump, what are they playing?


semi?


I've never seen that before. I always thought it was pump vs. pump and semi vs. semi. Maybe that's part of the reason why you keep losing haha.

Anywho, I've quit recball and only play scenarios now. Keeps me excited enough to want to play, gives me time to get money for entry/paint between events, opens up weekends, etc.. Do what you want, it'll probably make you happy.

I think he means the stuck up shit-heads that have no gun discipline.


I'm sorry if you misunderstood my post, Distortion. I didn't mean that tournament players are assholes. I was referring to the people that play a lot of tournaments and head to the field on saturdays and beat up on the rental players and the new players. Bigballa was right when he said "I think he means the stuck up shit-heads that have no gun discipline." I'm sorry if i offended you, I do not mean to insult tournament players

I remember that I was getting a tank filled when I was there once and his mom walked in and traded his mini + $300 for the ego7. He didn't even say thanks to his mom, he just told her to buy him a case of paint, which she did. Anyway he was bitching to his mom because she didn't buy him his rotor. The kid then goes on to throw his vlocity into a bunker and had a fit. He's 17, good God. And YOU tell me that my gear is shit.

1) stop playing pump and start ramping

2) go to another field and deal with the milsimers

3) quit

or

4) start an outlaw field...



those are your options....

I just went and shot all the guns when they were gone. Not too impressive...the best gun they had was a dm6.

There is a field in Foley, like an hour away and a field off the interstate. And of course there is outlaw ball. Anyone wanna sell me a chronograph?

Foley, AL?

From what I've heard it's not such a great field...

Been playing 23 years now, and several times I thought I would quit because of the attitude of "other" players.
Never have, and it's because a single relevation that is very obvious in hindsight:
If I'm not having fun, it's nobodies' fault but my own.

So now, I play for myself and to have fun. No other reason.
I don't play for any team, I rarely do tournaments and I often wear costumes at scenario games.

sounds like you need an elctro bigballa

and if money's an issue, there are many guns with high performance for very, very low cost

if you dont mind a bit of weight, Dm4's and ego5's are super cheap, 150-170 respectivly
they destroy most of the new low end guns like the pmr's mini's ect.
you can find a good loaders for 25-50 like the fasta or halo's or velocitiesa
and you already have an air tank

you probobly already know that
but,
I played pump for a year at my local feild, and against the normal crowd of renters and the occasional regulars, i had a real good time and shot lots of people, but when the shit hits the fan, and paints taking up all the air space, it really makes it more fun, or at least it did for me, when i could give bcak just as much paint as i was getting flinged at me.

Look, I have the same dilemma as you do

The fields here are awesome, all of them. There are many within a close distance, but there is a stigma in Quebec where EVERY damn paintball field is milsim.
When i play, out of a 10v10, at absolute most you will see 3 people with a smaller gun (me being one of them)
The fields are super expensive and everybody acts like they are the shit. But I play regardless, because covering their ass in paint with my ''little toy'' is much better than just sulking about it and quitting.
There are diamonds in the rough, but if it really pisses you off, then just take a break and come back later on. Paintball wont disintegrate while you're gone

Well, if you don't have a decent field, there isn't really much you can do, to be honest. My advice is to find another field, even if it's a few hours drive, and then just go less often.


TK speaks the truth.


Agreed.

I mean, if you're really not having that good of a time IDK what to do?

The only other field is an hour away. I've been there. The field ROCKS but the people don't. The staff is almost non-existent. All of the locals to that area are HARDCORE millsimmers and it's annoying as fuck to play with them. Really, you can't go a minute into the game without hearing "Get him in the flank!!!!!" "RETREAT!!!!" "CHARGGGGGEEEEE" "MAN DOWN....MAN DOWN!!!!!"

Get the idea? It's just a ton of kids wanting to play halo

Really...last time some kid with an x7 asked to see my gun(AKP) and asked why I used it. I said "It's lighter, more efficient and more practical, and what I like". He then proceeds to say "It's cheap...itll just break and we'll shoot you"...I said "It's just as durable as yours, dude..." and he proceeds to take my gun, drop it in the dirt and walk off. Not been back sense.

you should Try it one more time

Seems like I'm a very lucky person. There's only one field on the entire island, but it's a 30 minute ride. The owner is a good guy, but we have to ref ourselves. Everyone that plays there I know from school or i've met them before.

This.

But seriously, if the owner can't barely speak english, get to know your stuff about every marker. Ask him if you even just help out behind the desk or whatever. Then you can work your way up and OWN THE FIELD MUHHAHAHHAA........

Sorry.

Okay but seriously ask him if you could come in early (either field) and help out and maybe just MAYBE some other kid will try to. You can always move up to Canada ;)

OR talk to to the owner of the field in person or depending on your age ask one of your parents to talk to the owner about it. Let him know that what is going on is bad for business and it would make him some money to have the staff do a better job.

If the staff do their job and explain before games to the tournament players to go easy on the newer less experienced players or have them cap their ROF at 10 bps regardless of the mode they are using. Also, if the staff are doing a better job keeping the field in good shape then even better.

Take the initiative to try and fix things yourself like if the air bunkers on the field you are about to play on are deflated grab the leaf blower they have and do it yourself. If you get shot out and there is no one reffing then jump in and do the paint checks yourself. You get what I am trying to say. Taking the initiative to above and beyond in situations where others are not even doing what is required will cause a ripple effect of more and more good things.
