When I first started, I just thought it was a fun way to play army, and my parents never let me have toy guns or any games that weren't rated E so I never really played that type of game as a kid. It was new to me, and it was really fun.
Then I eventually got myself a marker, an Invert Mini. Played recball and eventually found speedball.
Next year I started playing tournaments. Started off with my friends in a fundraiser, which we placed second. We were pretty happy, seeing as we came into it expecting last place. The other teams had egos and high end markers. I came out of it with second place, my first bunker, my first successful 2v1, a signed Edmonton Impact jersey, an invite to another team (which I declined), and a smile on my face and $400 raised for ALS research and treatment from my team of three.
We had a few practices, and entered ourselves into a division 4 tournament. We were one of the better teams in the divison, and took second again. I really think we could have won first if it was a race-to format instead of best of one.
Then I subbed for a div2 team in a PPL event, which we also took second place in. Though I got lit up a lot, and I have a scar on my neck from getting bunkered. Probably because I'm not a div2 player
Then I bought a fancy G6R.
So yeah, that's how old I was
