I can't afford to be on a team, in terms of both time and money as a full time college student with a job, so recball for me.

Being on a team can also be stressful and full of unnecessary drama, so I don't think I would join one even if I could.

If you get shot in the jaw you remember you are playing paintball, man the fuck up and say thank you sir, may I have another. - Cdn

I play on a divisional team, as well as playing for fun. You have to balance both.

Started my own scenario team. Started off originally as just a group running under a name with a couple of jerseys for LL5, and has since blown up and is starting to gain recognition in our little slice of the US haha.

I typically play for fun. Being in high school, I don't have the means to financially play competitively, and there aren't many great tournaments around me, so the commute to practice and to events would be pretty bad.

Right now I have a solid group of about 5 including me and we're gonna try to start up a team. 3 of them competed in a one day tournament about a month ago and did pretty good. I broke my arm and couldn't compete, so that sucked for me. They said they loved the tournament scene. No one around here has any tournament series going on. So for right now just playing for fun.

I've played on two teams, and another I was on until I started to resent that team so much that I left before the season started. I play for fun all the time, and to me, competing and tournaments are fun. I love the strive to be the best, and to be better than everyone else. That to me, is fun. Rec-ball days, I like to mess around; take out a sword, take out a pistol, take out my "sniper" gun and scare everyone, etc. But I love everything about being on a team and being in tournaments even more. I love the driving, the practices, the stress, the pressure, the preparing, the half-assed lazy stays in a hotel or relatives room just to make it to PSP Phoenix or wherever, the bragging rights of knowing I'm playing "Professional" or tournament paintball.
I like to make it to big events, however, such as Living Legends last year. There, I believe is the thing you mean by 'playing for fun', and that, too, I enjoy.

I play on a team that does all of the local tournaments, local leagues and some nppl/psp events, as well as playing as many big events/open play days as we can. Its fun, but expensive. Especially when we play every weekend.

Man being in Canada and trying to start and compete with an airball/speedball team is a paint in the ass. But it depends on whether or not the outcome is as good as the process

Playing on a competitive team is playing for fun to me.
I mucked around playing big games, private fields and walk ons but it gets old. It's kinda like poker. Playing a free hand is fun but without money on the table there is nothing to play for and no rush when you win.
Big games may as well be a shooting gallery. You go out, shoot your paint, tag a bunch of kids, get hit by one of the hundreds of dudes sitting on the bushes waiting for easy shots, go home.
Competition brings out more in the players. I like being put in a position that If I don't bring my A game I'm going to get beat down. It makes you strive to be better than I other guy. I want to shoot straighter, to run faster, to move smarter, because if I don't put everything I have on the table, I go home with nothing but a few welts and a bruised ego. But when you take home that hard earned trophy you feel like a king. You have proven that your crew is better than all those guys who stood in your way. And is that not what is best in life?

That is maybe the best comment I have ever seen. I am very competitive when I do any sports, and I HATE losing. No matter how or when.

This. This is exactly why I'm starting a team with my buddy. I wanna play hard, I wanna play better than the ther team, I wanna earn respect. But at the same time I want a new car. Haha so the money scares me away but I know that I will enjoy every second of it.

Well they do, but the experienced players only come so often, so its like once a month.

EDIT: Actually, in about a month, Disruptive will be opening another field a mile away from their main one, and I'm hoping it'll have more airball fields. As much as I hate playing airball in the deserts of Arizona, it's not as much as me hating the lack of airball in my town.

Both? They are not mutually exclusive? Its fun to get out and be competitive but some days you gotta just go bs around with friends and have a good time! If you dont you cant get the full feel of the sport as a whole.

I'm on a team, we play every saturday and sunday, But as far as tournaments, there are none worth playing up here. There are a few tournaments, but they aren't very fun, no bps cap, absolutely crappy reffing and there are only about 4 teams that ever show up.
