A while ago I was out with my semi-auto A5 and this speedballer kept lighting me up even though field limit is 3 balls per person. And I wasn't the only one he did this to, we were all telling him to stop or leave but he just told us to "fuck off". Am I the only one who just has a bad notion about these 30bps people?

So, I'm going to guess your title should actually read: "Don't like that one guy who was an asshole," since not all paintballers are the same. I've had "woodsball" guys with their full auto Tippmanns light up everyone like paint was on sale. Also, was he actually shooting at 30 bps?

Well you've never even met me so how do you know you don't like all "speedballers." You actually havent met half the people who play speedball so how can you make such a judgment?

I highly doubt the dude was shooting 30bps. Most guns cant even handle that rof consistently. He was likely shooting 12-15bps

this.

Until this year I played almost strictly woodsball, and I know how it feels to be in your shoes. Getting shot more then once made me mad... Then I started playing airball. Now My answer? man up its only paint.

And I wasn't the only one he did this to, we were all telling him to stop or leave but he just told us to "fuck off". Am I the only one who just has a bad notion about these 30bps people?

Options:
1 - Talk to the field manager about him.

2 - Politely ask him to stop (what you did I assume)

3 - Gun battle with him (you will likely lose if he has an electro, but you may have a high pain tolerance so there's that too)

There will always be "the asshole". Wherever you are, whatever youre doing, he'll be somewhere nearby. Personally, it was adult "speedballers" that really welcomed me to the paintball community and helped me improve, and this was back when I only played woodsball. I have met many camo wearing and jersey wearing people that are now good friends, and I've met assholes that wear both as well.
The best thing to do IMO is have the manager talk to them and just ignore them. Go with some people and play on a different field if possible.

That sounds really stupid. So if you hit someone three times and they don't break you lose?

Ok, I must clarify that I've met a few really great sppedballers but there is always a few who are just jerks. They light you up, shoot you after your out or when you're spectating, or just do really stupid stuff. Sorry for the misunderstanding

No, they either call themselves out or call for a paintcheck. If they don't you shoot them again.

It's kind of a given to sometimes get shot while spectating, just happens.. There are also those kinds of people in all forms of paintball, hate to break it to you..

I know but it's so much worse when they intentionally shoot you, and maybe it's just my field or the amount of spray but it seems it more speedballers and they are usually more jerk-ish about it.

Stupid people are stupid people. Speedballers, woodsballers, every type can be stupid. It just so happens that speedballers, for a good amount, take paintball as a competitive sport due to their innate competitiveness, will be asses because theres no reason to be anything but to the opposition.

Honestly out of everyone at my field that plays seriously(aka not just having a random speedball gun and coming out occasionally) it's the guys with woodsball guns that shoot a ton. All the speedball guys have their guns capped at 12.5 while the guys with upped woodsball guns are shooting full auto and 15+bps. Also 3 balls is nothing, and it's expected to get shot as a spectator if you're in the nets. It's also important to not mistake walking into lanes as intentionally shooting people that are already out.

I can honestly say that there is a major diference between a speedballer, and a person with a smart parts ion in the woods

yeah, well I understand not to get in the way of people firing but I just don't like the guys who continue to aim and shoot when you're walking off or they just shoot you until they're bored.

When you get a little older, you'll learn that this is true for every type of person / group of people. There are shitheads all over the place, dude. You have to blame the person, not take what one person does and make it a rule for an entire population.

But wait.... The reason I became a speedie baller was so I could yell "Get juiced!" every time I hit someone, Yelling, muttering, complaining, all the new 2014 gear flashy colours and of course the primate to primate angry yelling who hit who and who's the real noob was all part of my plan.


Are you saying im not supposed to be a jackhole on the field?
im so confused.


In all seriousness. even on games where I would ref I noticed More E-grip milsim and scenario players would have their markers set for 11BPS auto while many of the Electro guys just used semi.

maybe my area was different. but I noticed higher rates of fire from that crowed, then the "everyday weekend bro with a E-gun"
