I take it one step past pumps and play with pistols. Feels great to rush up against your opponent and catch them by surprise!

Good thing I can get good paintballs for $30-$35 a case.

Suppressive fire, 450 round hopper, can pack about 2500 rounds into a game, keeping heads down for others to run up.

I'm losing some weight and lack of $$$ for paint, I changed styles. I like this newer kind of play and will be going with it for a while.

Newer style of play? For you, I suppose that's true. :-P

As long as I've been playing pump and "slow semi", I did feel a bit of satisfaction tearing some people apart at LL3 after all my pump hits were wiped the first day. The first time I've podded in-game for years.

Switched to mostly pump play after the first couple of times out playing paintball and am still mostly a pumper rocking some sort of nelson (phantoms and now a gargoyle). Some days though I just can't seem to hit anything with my VSC pump setups and that is when I break out the "mini" mini (pocket hopper and 13/3000) or mag rifle (19 round springfeed). Still pretty much the same style of play, lots of moving, ninjaing and snapping but with the ability to put a second ball near/on the target without the rock n cock.

Really though in most 15 min rec games I go through less than 35 rounds regardless of what I playing with.

Y'all are funny. Espousing how the game is purer, and so much more fun playing with a pump, whatever. You are almost as elitist in the opposite direction and the little tourney agg boys.

Even electros have a trigger and semi modes that can be controlled through user will. You can only carry a hopper of paint on the field, and actually limit yourself to what you shoot.
The important thing is getting out, with whatever you want to use, and have a good time, be a good sport, and play with honor.

What thread did you just read?

I don't recall many (if any) of the people here acting like elitists. An elitist is someone that believes the ONLY proper way to play is how they play. Thats not at all the general atmosphere of this thread. Its what the individuals are finding more fun, and why. Hell, the largest reason I changed playstyle was financial. I just was surprised to find the low-paint way to be more fun. I thought I'd hate the change.

But now, find it more fun to play with low-paint. (I don't even care if its pump/pistol/semi, its more the low-paint factor) as it makes for a much more interesting and aggressive style of play.

I actually -want- my opponents to play high paint. (Or whatever they want) Strategies change greatly from going against someone high paint or someone low paint. Someone else low paint (to me) is far more dangerous because they aren't shooting enough for me to follow when my heads down, and are more likely to be where I don't want them to me. Like behind me, or at my sides.

Regardless, I didn't think that ny

I've been hearing this "elitist" thing on MCB a whole lot lately. I mean, I'm sorry...are we making some of you guys feel insecure about your play styles?

It's like thinking that guys who drive stickshift are hifalutin elitist snobs and are looking down on automatic drivers. Do you honestly just want us to stop talking about how we like pump guns? Do you want us to just silently enjoy our chosen gear? It's a forum - you'd better expect people to talk about what they like.

How exciting would forum discussion be if everyone just neutered their opinion into middle of the road nothingness? It would be like MCB, brought to you by CNN. Liking pump play over semi play and telling people about it doesn't make you an elitist.

Its a game, it takes skill no matter what gear you are using. It just takes a bit more skill to eliminate your opponent when they are shooting 11 bps before ramping kicks in and you have a mechanical limitation of about 4 bps. I also play all styles of paintball and don't favor one over the other. This thread is about the simple fun of losing all the excess gear and playing with limited paint and air IIRC.

Maybe noone cares when the lose at pump. No "pride" on the line if you will. Just playing for fun, and if you lose you lose and noone cares?

I'm pretty sure this guy hit the nail on the head. Its all about doing something different than what you normally do that brings back some excitement. Its no longer routine.

When I started playing paintball it was 12 grams and 10 round tubes. Nelson's and PMI-1's were the norm. A bag of 100 paintballs would last the whole weekend.

Then I got my first pump rifle with 50 round hopper and it was awesome. Firefights got bigger and more intense.

Then I got my automag, played with that for years. It was awesome. Could lay prone without having to fight the ground to pump my rifle. Carried 150 paintballs in the hopper. It was so much better than playing pump with 10 rounds.

Just bought an Emag a few months ago, and I'm loving the ridiculous amount of firepower. Where as before I used carry only what fit in my hopper, now I'm toting 4 pods around with me, heavy gun, heavy powered hopper, etc.. I'm an adult in an established career and I can afford a couple of cases of paint for the weekend scenario game and I love it.

While I'm a bit behind the electro curve, its new to me, so the novelty is still there, and probably one day I'll wake up and decide that I'm tired of carrying all that weight, I'll change up my play style.
