So playing Hyperball the other I noticed that the only thing we called in common was snake.

I would call "left 50 can" or "mid-right can in front of X", because you know, they're sewer pipes. Can't really call them anything else.
Maybe one or two would understand, and then others would call out the same position with a different name like "50 short-stack" or "home tall", which I wouldn't have a problem with, if there weren't 5 other "50 short-stack"s or "home tall"s.

So let this be a lesson, decide with your group what you're gonna call things, like on the recball field, you call the farthest right car "50 right car" instead of just "car! car!". that doesn't help much when there's 5 different cars.

More of a rant than anything but you guys get what I mean.

Umm...chicken in the coop? Idk just use 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 left or right should do fine. That at least gets them looking. Carwash is another popular one, and diamond/dorito side would be opposite of snake if that helps.

Well no we were playing hyperball because the airball field was AFK that day.
So there really isn't doritos or diamonds.

But I get what you're saying.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to yell that all day.

I guess I was too busy doing the "D1" stance off break.

Tank on neck, grabbing tank with left hand, barrel in the right.

I honestly try to make the bunker codes as SIMPLE as possible

back center = home
dorito corner, then D1, D2, D3, 50 dorito
Snake Corner, then S1, S2, S3

Sometimes, if they have a can in the middle of the field, I call that a turret

If they have a Mayan in the middle, I tend to call that a rocket (snake rocket, dorito rocket, etc)

And if there is a dominant bunker that has clear shots on everything, I'll call that a "God" bunker


When you start naming the bunkers after dead presidents, providences of Canada, shit gets all fucked up

In my area people usually use 1-5 for the back line of bunkers. For example, snake corner is 1, home is 3, and dorito corner is 5. Then everyone goes by D1, S1, etc.

I know this past weekend, I was trying to yell out calls, but just some things on a recball field you don't know what it is. I mostly used the "Back and home" because I figured people would kind of know what it was.

In a true woodsball field it can be tough to have "bunker" names, when shit can be so different, however.

I always try to relate it in the standard "yard line" format.

For example, on a hill of small dirt piles with little trails between them, If I see a guy on the right side, three quarters of the way up the field I'll say "RIGHT 70!", if a guy is in the very middle I'll call "50 CENTER!" Stuff like that.


Keeps it simple, and every team has a different way of communicating.
