As the title states what nation produces the most dominant players in your opinion? I know personally I am not familiar with many of the other leagues and players outside of the US so it should be interesting for the more worldly members to speak up! Considering everyone is gunning for Russians right now im going to have to say either them or the US but I would like to see what you guys think!

I wouldn't say one country has the "best" players. They all have some great players. All teams are different in the way they play. But, it's really hard to choose, IF I had to say a country had the "best".

The larger your player base and the more competition you can create means you have a greater propensity to find and cultivate talent in any given area. That said, the USA has the largest player base, therefore also the highest amount of skilled players. Russia would likely be second, although they appear to be gaining pretty quickly with their different take on player development.

I would say the US, I think Canada is up there though, many US pro guys come up to play CXBL, so the competition must be at least some what comparable.

Issue with Paintball in Canada is a lot of the talent is also insanely hot headed. At least that's how it is in the East.

But definitely US for #1, it's just more accessible to them than anyone else.

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.

I say the US. I would say Russia, but its not really fair since they literally train all day for paintball. Most players don't devote that much time to the sport because they have other shit to do like work to support themselves and afford paintball. Of course you are going to be amazing at something if you devote 40 hours a week to it.

America for the amount of great skilled players.

Then I'd say Russia for the most dominant players made(every Russian team i watch are always super aggressive and almost play the game with an aggressive melody)

Well in terms of talent, every country has it's prodigies, but Russia especially. Some of them are insanely talented, just lack proper experience. But in terms of what nation breeds the best players, I'd say whatever the country that has the largest paintball scene, as that means that there's easier development in skill and experience. Talent is really something you just have. The U.S. has currently the largest paintball scenes, so many great players arise from beating the thousands in the competition. Canada is a close second, and Russia is a following third due to the raw talent of many players that come from there.
