So I have nothing to do and I want to go paintballing but all my friends are on holidays. I'm kind of nervous about going alone i'm not very good because I've only been speedballing about five times. I'm going to calgary rampage also i'm a younger player, 13, so i'm just wondering is it worth going alone? Also does open day on sunday at rampage mean drop in?

If you're under 18 and pay for your own stuff, put this in your signature.

as long as the field has enough folks to run some games, yeah, go alone!

you never know, you might make new friends too. me and  bryce met at a farmland game, and the rest ... is history ;)

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."

You should go, you never know who you'll meet there.

Definitely go.  I started going alone last year and made a ton of new paintballing buddies that I shoot the shit with every weekend now.

go for sure
rampage is a great place to meet other players, especially on open nights. i know the guys from 5150 and some of the players from pandemonium are always there on sunday nights and they're great guys to play with and they can give you a lot of helpful advice

unless regulars in that field are douches, there is nothing wrong to go play on your own, i have been going by my self for the most part of the 10 years i have been playing.

you can always meet new ppl..

I never have fear of going alone, because my friends are the regulars at the field. I went alone so many times that everyone there just sort of became my friend.

This is so true. I never went with friends and I have to admit I was nervous the first few times but you get used to going alone and if you just talk to other people at the field and make friends with the refs and stuff you will have a good time.

I normally dont go alone, But I bring a friend of mine. But If You do go alone, Go just find someone who looks pretty cool and laid back and play with them. Normally most of the pump guys are cool and would love to play with yah. Just dont worry about it and join a few games, you will forget about it when you start playing. In general 99.9% of paintballers are going to be really nice to you and help you out. Heck at my local field its all smiles, last weekend I was playing with this other random regular guy around my age and when I ran out of paint he gave me a free bag.


Its kinda funny because I remember last week A kids gun was down so I lent him my LV1... Not the best Idea in retrospect, But He had fun and I was already out anyways so...  You just have to be nice, I know not all fields are exactly like mine, but I doubt yours would be very far off.

I honestly felt nervous the first time I went alone.  I was used to having a bunch of my friends on my team.  But I was over thinking it, and it turned out I got to talking to the field regulars more and made new friends with them instead.

I am qmto on youtube, i make funny videos because i love you all.

I made one of my best friends on a day I went to play alone.

here is my story on my first time going alone. I didn't exactly go alone, I was with a friend but if he didn't come then I was willing to go alone. (he was the only friend out of the normal group of friends that was willing to go this weekend). anyways so we went out to one of our local fields and we parked right next to these bunch of pump players. After playing a few games we were both sitting down at our respective benches when they asked us if we wanted to play speed ball with them while they ran practice. so we said sure why not since all the other walk ones weren't rotating through the speed ball field. anyways about half way through the day I finally took a good look at their jerseys and it turned out to be LA Hitmen which is a pretty well known pump team. they were really friendly and willing to give us some tips as well as commend us for giving them good practice partners. Thats the first time I met the legend that is sonny lopez. this guy played on dynasty, naughty dogs as well as executive director at WGP.


So don't be afraid to go alone because you might end up meeting some awesome people like I did and others here in this thread.
