Don't hug cover, and ALWAYS have an extra trick up your sleeve!

by Colin MacRae
(Singapore)

I don't have a story because I haven't played paintball yet. I'm only 12, and the age limit of Singapore (In south-east Asia, below Malaysia) for paintball is at least 14 years old, but you have to have permission from parents/guardian until you're 18. Besides, Singapore only has 2 paintball fields, and from looks, they both SUCK! But my parents have been looking into going back to the U.S (I'm from America, just so you guys can know). Anyways, enough of that crap. From the countless articles I have read, and Youtube vids I have watched (I greatly recommend the user Claydo11) I think one of the major all-time paintball rules is (especially in speedball) don't hide in the same cover for the whole game. I've read somewhere that if you stay too long in the cover, you 1: Have a larger chance of getting shot 2: Miss out on all the fun. Who cares if you get out? Okay, maybe it's the last round of the finals for some big-a** tournament and 1 mill. (Do they have cash prizes that big, if they have cash prizes at all?) But you go out there to have some fun and to shoot some paintballs, not try to make your opponent choke on paint. And if that's what he wants, then lets just hope you can run fast and have some good cover and teammates! :P Also another thing that I would like to try when I get on the field is always remembering some good ambush tactic. Just spend 20-30 minutes on the web looking for some good flanking technique or defensive ambush to pull out your butt when all screws up. It may give you the winning edge. A (apparently good technique) is the HOOK AND BAIT. Search this on the web, get it down in your head, chant it billion times, hell, make some flash cards. Whatever it takes for you to remember good strategies. Bye!

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT
by: Colin MacRae

Whoever had the title no offense, well, you didn't offend me and you're right! But fortunatley I have finally been able to play at two fields in Seattle when I went there for vacation; number 1: North West Paintball Field. I had a great time and I made loads of friends. Ironically, when I was playing I thought "I can't believe I thought I knew so much about paintball." And I got out around 5 people (2 I was unsure of) and was hit 3 times. I played about 9 games and had a hell of a time! The other place I played in was Portland Paintball Field. It was messy, had a hard concrete floor (slippery too,) and the referee was like trippin'or something cause he had NO IDEA what was going on. Don't waste your money there!

no offense
by: Anonymous

no offense you can't read some articles and know how to play paintball. I have been playing paintball for nearly 8 years and the best tip is to just keep moving, dont shoot too soon, and work with your teammates.
