In Topic: fazmags

30 June 2014 - 10:45 AM

Fazmags for sure.  They are great.  I've had mags get caught in those nylon ones and also drop all the paint out of my mag into the pocket.  Never had any problem with fazmags and can't say enough good stuff about them.  I do shoot a TiPX though, but if the t8.1s are half as good as these than i would say that makes them twice as good as any nylon constructed mag pouches.


In Topic: How should i improve my woodsball loadout

27 June 2014 - 12:59 PM

Personally I live by the Apex 2.  They are amazing, its not the accuracy but the consistency that makes them what they are.  I would also recommend taking the tank off your back and putting it back on the gun.  Switching hands is infinity easier this way.  If you don't switch hands already, learn to.  It will make you that much more of a threat on both sides of the field instead of just one.  Then look into a 3 pod pack.  I don't think you'll need more than that in any one given game with an A-5, and holding more paint than your gun can shoot or than you plan to shoot is a waste of weight and comfort. 


In Topic: I need a good inexpensive speedball gun. Please help

Whoa whoa whoa, slow the train up for a second.  $300 for a new (or lightly used) marker is not bad, but more importantly, do you already have the associated necessities?  Lets say you go with the Axe, your CO2 and Shake and shoot loader isn't going to cut it anymore.  Now figure $140 minimum for an air tank and $80 minimum for a loader.  Your $300 for a new marker just dropped to $80.  There are ways around this, but up to now we've all just been kind of assuming you already have the necessities.

^^^ Hot Damn, this forum needs a like button.

 

No Name on Jersey (working on that)

New Empire Praetorian Guard

 

Saturday:

Insertions: 7+Dinner Battle

Favorite part:  Rangel telling me to lead a bunch of people to take Merida right as I picked up a Demo DAM w/box mag.  We pushed from the Eastern Edge of Vera Cruise up to the Western Edge of Merida before I ran out of paint and air.  Not sure if he's on here at all but there was a guy I "Taught" more or less to use his Apex the right way.  1 person laying down behind a log was holding us back.  Told him to flip the apex over and put 2 shots just over the log.  Next thing we see is a hand coming up and our team pushing futher on. 

Least Favorite part:  People that don't understand that once you hit someone and they call for a medic, that you should stop shooting.  I'm going to have to edit that clip out of my video or at least drop the volume after what I was yelling.  That and being one of 4-5 people that tried to hold the woods in the dinner battle. 

 

Sunday:

Insertions 4+ Final Battle

Favorite Part:  Armageddon push to Bedlam (that never quite made it).  The whole time was great.  From being a human shield for medics and Heavy weapons to turning around and seeing that I'm sharing a bunker with one of the LA Hitmen, it was just a good time all together.

Least Favorite Part:  30 seconds left in the final battle I get hit, as I grab my pod and turn around to leave I hear the end game screamer go off.  I figured I should go back to the temple and congratulate/shake hands with the Horde players.  While walking back (probably a full 30-60 seconds after End Game) I got lit up.  At least another 10 breaks on me not including the bounces.  Turned my comments from "good game" to "What the fuck" real quick.

 

Thoughts on the event as a whole:

Of course I would have liked to win, but that said, I still had a great time.  I was a little frustrated that the skirmishes ended up the way they did.  I was looking forward to them and the Praetorian Guard were told to stand down from the skirmish just as their first one was about to start, then our second one on Sunday was flat out canceled.  It sucks and is frustrating, but shit happens and like I said, I still had a great time. 

 

The amount of organization that Mike had for this event was ridiculous and I hope will set a new standard for events in the future. 

 

I do want to get this out there though that events like this bring out the best and the worst in people.  The best in my eyes being the emotion and the care for that sport.  Whether it be Mike basically donating $5k to someone that isn't even involved with paintball or an entire crowd getting behind making things right for a 12 year old kid.  Those parts changed my mind entirely on the event, for the better.  Why for the better, because prior to those things happening I was on the edge of not bothering to return to Living Legends next year, and this is where that worst part comes in.  Seeing how the final battle and the dinner battle went down was very disappointing to me.  Solely because of the sheer disregard for safety some people have.  When someone goes up to hit the slap stick, I get it, shoot them.  When they are on the ground rolling away or on the ground in the fetal position, point your fucking gun somewhere else.  What happened to the one of the Schack brothers on Saturday during the dinner battle to me is inexcusable.  Yes he went up to the stick knowing full well what was waiting for him on the other side and he took his hits.  But when he fell to the ground and you could still hear the roar of markers going off, not paint that was already in the air but fresh shots, it just sends a sickening feeling through me.  Knowing that there are people that spend the entire dinner/final battle laying prone with their gun up just waiting to put their 30 shots into someone, with out having the balls to actually step up and receive for once really pisses me off.  I know I don't have the balls to go up and hit a slap stick, which is why I don't sit and wait to punish the ones that do.  There's a pretty clear difference between defending a slap stick and being an asshole.  To the ones that stopped firing after they saw he was hit, job well done.  To the ones that kept firing while the player was on the ground, you sir are an asshole... bet of luck to you in life.

 

I know I'm just being a crotchety old guy, but that's my opinion and I fully anticipate getting heat for it.


In Topic: Saturday opening charge

Cockerpunk is correct. Sunday morning not as many people make it there like they do for Saturday morning, so every body is that much more important than in the other charge.
