Well when i started playing paintball a few months ago i heard that years ago a good box a paintballs cost around $100

well ramping came along and probably years before that paint prices started to drop. I originally thought that ramping was created so you'd buy more paint and waist more.

Ramping was introduced by Smart Parts in 1998ish, reasons being so that players would be able to improve on their movement without sacrificing ROF during said movement, not to waste paint.

Only time I use ramping is if I am playing with/against a group of friends and its what we are all doing, or if I am at a scenario with a lot of people.

As the paintball industry grew more paint production facilities were built and more paint was produced, which lead to lower prices.

Price also depends on where you are and fields. Canadians pay high dollar. I pay $30-40.

ramping was invented to shoot more, faster.

it has done that splendly.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

Ramping's awesome. Some look at it as an advantage I look at it as "leveling" the playing field

Ramping was started as a cheater mode to help players shoot a consistent stream of paint either hand without the need to practice that particular skill.

Eventually paintball leagues gave up trying to enforce the one pull one shot rule in the name of levelling the playing field. Witch is fine if ya like that but my only question then is why leave it as the cheating mode of pulling the trigger at a certain rate to shoot faster why not take away the false premiss that it's the player shooting that fast and just make it a 12.5bps full auto deal. Seems to me it level the playing field just as well and make the electronics just that much easier.
