Boy, you really work hard on coming up with topics don't you?

This seem like a job for Wikipedia!

Paintball is a game[2][3][4] in which players compete, in teams or individually, to eliminate opponents by tagging them with capsules containing water soluble dye and gelatin shell outside (referred to as paintballs) propelled from a device called a paintball marker (commonly referred to as a paintball gun). Paintballs are composed of a non-toxic, biodegradable, water soluble polymer. The game is regularly played at a sporting level with organized competition involving worldwide leagues, tournaments, professional teams, and players.[5][6] Paintball technology is also used by military forces, law enforcement, para-military and security organizations to supplement military training, as well as playing a role in riot response, and non-lethal suppression of dangerous suspects.

Games can be played on very hard floors in indoor fields, or outdoor fields of varying sizes. A game field is scattered with natural or artificial terrain, which players use for tactical cover. Game types in paintball vary, but can include capture the flag, elimination, ammunition limits, defending or attacking a particular point or area, or capturing objects of interest hidden in the playing area. Depending on the variant played, games can last from seconds to hours, or even days in scenario play.

The legality of paintball varies among countries and regions. In most areas where regulated play is offered, players are required to wear protective masks, and game rules are strictly enforced. This initial game was a capture the flag style scenario. Later, Bob Gurnsey formed the National Survival Game company, which was the first firm to sell paintball equipment.[7]

Paintball: Competition, tactics, and having fun. Three words that sums up paintball for me.

I am a very competitive person, and I like to win, so I have to learn different methods or "tactics" to improve my game, but overall if I don't have fun, than I won't continue playing.

its not bothering me at all... unless i have to stat moving your topics or closing them down... but yes. topics like this come across as the OP just trying to boost up their post count, as they are usually pretty useless topics... entertaining to watch the shit show, but ultimately useless

If his punctuation and capitalization were a bit better, I might actually consider taking him seriously before I start laughing.

Complaining about him "working on his post count" is stupid, because you are working your own up not providing to the topic.

I'm very joyful when I see newer players enjoying the sport and when my friends come to me about what they should get. Good reason to play a sport.

But it's not asking what he should get. He's putting up posts that could be answered in a few words from someone in chat or at the local field. This one kind of struck my interest, but then I thought about it, and the only thing that we could answer seriously on this is some cheesy, poetic representation of how paintball has affected their lives.

I think you post in every one of his topics.. Haven't you posted more then he does?

Tell us what you think about paintball. a mod already said it didn't bother him. So quit complaining and contribute tothe topics you click on.

The topic may not bother me... just makes the op look like a post whore.. what does bother me is when I see a regular user telling another regular user what to do... you have no authority here, so, telling someone to contribute to a topic can, and has, started unproductive and inflamitiory arguments in threads like this one. Instead of acting like a mod, simply report the posts you feel are trolling, and we will take care of it. But be careful on what yiu report, as we take abuse of the report system very seriously here.

Paintball is easy.
It boils down to objective oriented goal aquisition.

To put it in reverse:
You want to "Aquire" a goal.
The "Goal" is to win, or at least do better than the other team.
You Focus, or "orient", yourself on the objective.
The "objective" is often a flag, but can be whatever the field designates.
(a flag, a prop, a blow-up sex doll, Total Elimination of the other team, whatever)
