You've stated you don't offer surrenders, but you haven't clearly stated why.
Why do you not offer surrenders?
Hopefully you have a better reason than, "because I don't like getting shot", as that would be obvious hypocrisy.
I hardly think you're shooting them BECAUSE they are "pussies", so that's not really an explanation either.
I love surrendering people. A successful surrender is one of those win-win-win scenarios. I claim the bunker, the customer never gets shot, and I don't waste paint/air doing it. Most people that I surrender aren't even worth the 1 ball it would take to eliminate them at close range. It's my way of saying, "You're not worth it, now get out of my bunker."
As a low volume player, surrendering people is a mandatory
skill in the toolbox.
People being "pussies" never enters the equation at all for me.
If you have the option of removing a player without firing a shot, why not take it?
Because you're afraid of getting shot?
