I was just wondering if anybody had any helpful about how I could improve my game or things that I practice that will help me out. All tips and advice are welcome but I'm looking for mostly advice about speedball specifically.

Play against better players whenever you can. It'll suck getting beat all the time, but you'll get better. Practice snapshooting, sliding etc at home when you can.

fuck yolo

I always like to suggest watching Dynasty Dysected. You should be able to find it on youtube, and it has a bunch of really helpful tips on just about everything you need to know. Mike made some good videos as well, you'll have to search his channel for those.

 

The biggest thing I can suggest is to just go out and play. Watching videos can help, but they don't do anything for you if you don't play. Also, always play people better than you. The only way to learn anything is to fail. The way to fail is to get beat, and the way to get beat is to play people that will beat you. It won't be fun getting beat all the time, but you will get better in the end.

Play when ever you can, and in your down time go out for a small jog or do sit ups or something to help your movement on the field.

Play as much as possible. With better players if possible.

Like said before practice snap shooting at home. Maybe use a mirror so you can see yourself and the profile your giving off.

Videos can help but nothing beat muscle memory.

Learn to hit what you are aiming at with your FIRST shot. You want to get to the point where you DON'T have to aim, you just point and shoot. I haven't thought about "aiming" in years, I picked a gun when I started playing paintball, and never changed that gun, so my muscle memory is based on that gun. If I need an improvement I just change barrels based on the paint or the temperatures... 

 

Nothing beats repetition. The more you play, the more you learn. But, you can watch and learn from Tips & Tricks videos as well, especially basics like not getting tunnel vision. Learning how to predict movements. How to snap shoot, ect.

this will sound weird but use a old mask on a stick if you practice shooting a bunker  you're instinct will be to hit the bunker not the mask

Play more. Think about your mistakes. Win.
Biggest bit of advice is to learn how to play tight.
