found this while perusing my subscriptions. Credit goes to fellow norcal baller cityfrags, he really managed to nail, well, pretty much all the rentals down that frequent the local field lol. Enjoy :)

Yeah, pretty much..... There's a few other stupid things I've heard, but he got most of it.
I've had kindof a bad day, but that made me smile. :)

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.

Lol guys see you walk on the field in a jersey, pants, cool mask, and decent gun: "Oh that's not fair, that guy's a pro!"
Ego boost, though I prefer Geo's :P
Also another thing they say: "How are you shooting full auto?!"

When rentals say maps and ammo or bullets it just kind of drives me nuts. You want to go up and correct them when you know you shouldn't. My friend who hardly ever plays paintball was selling his tippmann 98 for $160, gun only, :o and was calling it a type 98 :angry: I'm guessing he was thinking COD :P

My only complaint to coffin stuffers... i mean new players is.

"I bet it hurts to get shot by that gun, it must shoot like quarter mile."

That's really about it all a rental person can say that just rocks my nerves. I explain to them ALL markers shoot at or near the same velocity and no marker shoots further then another one.

I don't think it's funny. I think this kid is a douche. Everyone was ignorant once. You have to start some where. I am glad the people I ran into early on were patient enough to try and explain things kindly to me and that I had this great site as a resource to learn about paint ball. Tons and tons of kids play games. Tons of people play games in general. If they love CoD and they think that because of that they may want to try paint ball out cool. If they call a map a field who gives a shit? Do you think the field owner cares? If you want paint ball to grow then videos and attitudes like this are counter productive.

Yes, we are supposed to help out the newer kids, but sometimes they'll say or do something that's priceless and most people can't help but laugh.
Are we still helping them when possible? yes.
Do we have to be 100% serious while doing it? I don't think so.

Also when a Tippmann runs out of air and all the rentals say "I don't want to play against him, he's shooting fully automatic!"

"How do you keep your mask from fogging? Is that mask for pros?"

(When I am reffing) "Do you play paintball too?" really, do I play paintball? No, I just like acting like a douche and telling kids they've been hit and letting them shoot me... (I feel like such a tool telling someone they're out, you know?)

"I've only played paintball once and am trying to start a team, how do I do that?"

"If it hits my gun am I out?"

"I'm HIT!!!" even though it was a bounce

I was playing with my SP shocker and my nephews 98 was acting up. I switched him to try and figure it out. This kid seen me walk to the other team and yells to his team mates. " hey the ref made him switch gun. Told you his other one was a full auto. Cheater". I lot it when my 11 year old nephew got him with my "full auto cheater gun"

I completely agree. One time at the fill station, a 12 year old renter asked "How do I charge this?" and i was like "WHAT?!?!". He pointed at his tank and asked again "How do i charge this?" and i realized he wanted to know how to fill his tank. Was it funny?... yes. Did i keep the laughter in?... Yes. Did i help him out?... Yes.

Another common one includes a kid with a alphablack
Kid:Look at my New Machine Gun. It has sights and everything.
Friend:(with a 98 rental) Woah, its an m16. You are going to wipe down everyone!!!

There is being light hearted and goofy, and then there is mockery and condescension. I thought the video was condescending towards renters and new players. I don't even think there is any question. The tone in the persons voice and the way they speak is done in such a way to deliberately sound stupid. Inexperience is a stupid thing to mock some one over. The terminology in paint ball is pretty specific to paint ball. There are others ways you can describe what you see on a field and still make sense and people generally try to relate that with things they already know. In most cases that would be video games. It is ridiculous to think some one trying paint ball out for the first time will know what guns do what, what ramping is, what a pump gun is, etc. And to me paint ball should be about fun more than anything.

A regular pump player at my field once accused a rental player of shooting full auto with a 98 :dodgy:
He almost started yelling at him, this kid was 12 and was probably scared since the guy was like 25+

The best is the look of amazment/ fear in their eyes when you're on the field and how happy they sare when you lend them your gun....Although I hate when they call it a map, or when they they me that "THIS AREA IS TOO CLOSE! WE DON"T WANT TO GET INTO a STICKY SITUATION! FALL BACK!!!!!!". Also when they fire 150 out of their vl200 before the match even starts annnoys the hell out of me! Especially when they almost hit you multiple times...

So glad the refs helped me when I was a renter and ignorant. I was scared to play against the speedball players, because their guns shot faster. He explained to me that the guns shot almost the same speed, just that they had electronic hoppers.

Great guy helped me out.
So glad to not be a noob anymore.

I can be a bit of a smartass and even an a-hole. Please bear with me.

Agreed, Do I sometimes chuckle inside when I get asked these questions sure... Would I make a video about it nope... There is already a stereotype of the avid paintballers... This just further encourages that myth that we are all douche bags... I was lucky enough to start playing with people I knew and that have played for awhile... These videos discourage new people to get involved and get started for fear of looking like an idiot... We want the sport to grow. This is counterproductive to what everyone on this site wants...
