In Topic: Who plays on a Team or plays for fun?

Playing on a competitive team is playing for fun to me.
I mucked around playing big games, private fields and walk ons but it gets old. It's kinda like poker. Playing a free hand is fun but without money on the table there is nothing to play for and no rush when you win.
Big games may as well be a shooting gallery. You go out, shoot your paint, tag a bunch of kids, get hit by one of the hundreds of dudes sitting on the bushes waiting for easy shots, go home.
Competition brings out more in the players. I like being put in a position that If I don't bring my A game I'm going to get beat down. It makes you strive to be better than I other guy. I want to shoot straighter, to run faster, to move smarter, because if I don't put everything I have on the table, I go home with nothing but a few welts and a bruised ego. But when you take home that hard earned trophy you feel like a king. You have proven that your crew is better than all those guys who stood in your way. And is that not what is best in life?

Why do many of you like center drop necks? I actually like a offset better. Think of it this way. You spend most of your time behind cover right? With an offfset, your hopper has to stick out farther before you can shoot out which makes it harder to avoid getting shot in the hopper. The other thing is that it tends to block off a large chunk of whats directly front-right of you. Try it out yourself. Grab a gun with a right side offset, cyclone or ripclip and line up behind something like you would behind a bunker. Come out with the gun in your right hand, trying to expose as little as possible. The hopper has to come way out for the gun to be clear of your cover.

Do the electro's break down a lot? Generally they need more TLC. They need to be cleaned and lubed more frequently and you have to keep on top of your batteries. Its's usually no more than what most people do for their tippmanns as well. The difference is kinda moot most of the time.

Are the Tippmans really at a disadvantage in accuracy and range? Guns have no bearing on accuracy or range.


Offset feednecks are pointless IMO. I really don't understand why people like them. So far the only reason I hear is so that you can use a sight but seeing as they are more detrimental than helpful, it's not a good excuse either.

"Bunker" usually describes inflatable cover of some kind. It can also be used as a blanket term for any solid cover.
