Paintball can be as easy and as hard as you want it to be. If you want to play competitively and have the most expensice gear you're gonna have to work for it. I've got a beat to shit 98 custom sitting my room that ended up getting for free because I sold everything it came with. Throw on a $6 50 round hopper and buy a Co2 tank from Fleet Farm. Boom. Then buy whatever mask you want. I could have a $50 setup to play in the woods with on the weekends. Use 500 balls a day and just enjoy myself. I don't play like that, but you don't need much to enjoy yourself.

Not buying every shocker you see.

This right here ^^

when playing: Resisting the urge to bonus ball the renters who walk through the open to my bunker yelling "SURRENDER!" as loud as they can thinking I'll just give up.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

Hmmm.....

 

Dealing with people who:

  • Are convinced Tippmann is dominant or whatever other MILSIM crap they use.
  • Try to give out orders that actually have no idea what the hell they are saying
  • Use excessively long barrels....
  • Don't know/understand the rules in a match that everyone else is playing by same rules.
  • Wipe/Cheat.
  • Light up renters/new people who just want to play and have fun.

Other:

  • Being kinda in debt from buying all my expensive desired speedball gear within a short period of time because i hate playing with basic gear especially/not limited to the 98 Custom.
  • Explaining why i need to play this expensive habit more often.

At the moment not sure what else to say. Haha.

Do people realize this is the HARDEST thing to do in paintball thread, not the "things that bother me or are somewhat difficult" in paintball thread?

I say pulling off a 1 v 5 (or more) against opponents that are at least as skilled as you.

Convincing your cheap ass buddies to not cheap out on buying equipment (aka mask, tank. Etc)

So they could atleast quit complaining about their mask fogging :I

Or that their tank reg doesnt fit their asa.

Explaining to people that there are other guns besides Spyders and Tippmanns......

Oh my god. I hate that
I second that notion. Some people just don't understand that there are better guns then they're precious little spyder fenix, Much better shit like an axe or etek

My setup: Tippy 98 custom pro, guardian 48/3000 tank, e-flex, and PROTO PRIMO (best hopper EVER)

Hardest thing to do? Trying to justify spending well now so you don't have to later to a friend who's new to paintball. Guy was all like: "It's ok, my mask won't fog and it's really breathable and light." About the jt raptor mask that came om his walmart kit.

Trying to not blow your cover when pooping halfway through a woodsball game into the ground after Mountain Dew and Taco Bell while your anus is sounds reminiscent of little kids stepping on balloons during cleanup time after a party.

 

TechPB's magical solution to my problem worked yet again: I shat on the field, because the game took too long.
