I wasn't too bothered by it, I saw it two days ago and didn't feel the need to post about it.

all I'm saying is that if your going to show an ad with a sport then don't BS it, at least give them some masks, if you look at ads of other sports being played you see helmets and proper gear.

Unfortunately unless you've actually gone out and played paintball before this is how you most likely view it.

They probably used no masks, though, so that people viewing it could relate to the actors, since they look like average people.
If you're under 18 and pay for your own stuff, put this in your signature.
On a side note... Royal Highlanders rule!

I feel like this add supports the general public's connotation about paintball, but I also think that adds like this scare people away from trying the game,

they show a general stereotype of one "experienced" player who just goes out and wrecks all the renters. I don't think that any young kid wants to come out and get destroyed by someone who is way better than them, which is basically what is going on in this commercial.

"It costs me more than $3,000 to play paintball every year, therefore I'd get a used highend for around $300- $600 and use the rest towards paint, gas, food, hotel costs, alcohol, and cheap hookers." SOUP on March 31, 2014
