okey
im getting kinda sick and tired of all the focus on the gear! fuck that. its only stuff. the forums and the chat is filled with what kinda gear that gear that. its almost never talk abuot the game! and lets all be honest we love the game. the gear is just a bonus. i meen i love pb guns more the next guy. but i miss talking abuot the game. talking abuot field stuff, layouts,plays.tactics,drills, and so on.

the game is so mutch more important then the gear.

Hmm... Na, it's too fun to argue with everyone over gear.

Yeah that would be a nice change of pace, swapping stories like we do at big games with one another and sharing tactics and building team commradery!

I hear ya man, part of the reason I burnt out for a bit on the forums when I got back from basic. Also the reason I'm hunting 2 end all guns, I'm getting an S6 pump in and want to get a T2 and be done with it. I also want to get a Victory and be done with it so I can just focus on the game and be satisfied with my gear.

Me too!

But I agree, it's all about the gear these days.

"Should I get super badass gun 1 that anybody would be happy with, or super badass gun 2 that anyone would be happy with?"
"Super badass gun 1 sucks because it's .1 oz heavier!!!1 I hate that gun and so should everybody else!"
"I agree, so I'm gonna get super badass gun 2, spend all my money on it and not have enough to play, and then say I'm better than everyone else because I have new shit while advising everyone that they need to be just like me otherwise they suck."
Fuck that.

That's why I've mostly turned to the off-topic forums. I also lurk around the pump forums because I feel that pump will eventually turn paintball away from all the petty crap seen above. But I'm sure that's just wishful thinking...

I dont really mind the gear talk online, but it annoys me when its at the field. No one cares if you have an NT you just got shot out in about 4 seconds...

I dip into the paintball chatter section every once in a while, again mostly gear talk, equipment advice I answer the questions about what gear newer players should get since they aren't hunting the latest high end. But for the most part I stick to the scenario/woodsball forum, the OT forums and Pump World along with the staff forums obviously.

Personally I think a pump league would be much more enjoyable than ramping/semi. Think about it, no bonus balling, easier to ref, more skill, more movement since lanes aren't locked down by ropes of paint.

Do what I do every couple of years for shits and grins....

I show up at a field that I never been to before for some rec-play wearing cargo pants with a t-shirt....carrying a old mech Spyder and two pringle potato chip cans for pods shoved in the pants pockets. The stares are priceless and after the first game or so you get to see the grins from the ref and players who know....priceless.

That is always fun to go back to my roots to remember where I'm coiming from. When I used to be big into running remote lines with my a-5. Couldn't find my remote line screw in at the top. So instead I used a old side 2 pod little pack that went on my hip and just used that. It was a heck of a lot lighter and a lot of fun!

It's almost natural instinct to show off what you have and compare it to others.

But I think showing off your skill and knowledge of the sport is better than showing off your gajillion dollar marker that shoots ropes, lasers, Russian prostitutes, or whatever the hell kids are calling it these days.

I agree. Just get out and play, if people spent the time worrying about how they play vs. what gear they use then they might actually be good.

I would pay more than a gajillion dollars for a gun that shoots russian prostitutes, given that they, ya know, would cooperate and do their job

Moose speaks the truth. Plain and simple.

Sadly I have relized this now in my life. Really wished I would have relized it sooner I would have saved some money! But I am ok as a paintballer. I have certaintly gotten better. Yes I was concentrated on other sports but. Now I just have paintball! I focused more on my game and with my G3 and less with my gear! I practiced this summer for a few days I need to start it up again. But really to learn how to shoot left handed. I would stay up late till about 1 am just taking my gun near my side tank and hopper and shouldering it on my right, putting it down and shouldering it on my left. That would be one count. I did 50 of these a night! I now am better with my left hand! I also worked on sliding and I am great at it! Plus when I really put my heart into paintball I started a paintball field at the local golf dome and it is legit!
