So, what brought you to MCB?

Given that someone posted an "I Love MCB" thread I was wondering what it was that brought you here or drove you from the other sites.
For me, I was a pretty regular poster on AO and TechPB. AO, in the last ten years... the tone has grown bitter in my opinion, and TechPB I got pretty sick of that majority of posters being unable to articulate themselves with out using f-bombs and the closed mindedness - you cannot really disagree with the hype. Go over there once and tell someone that the Axe is nothing special and doesn't shoot smoother than a Luxe.

Drawn to the old school stuff. Coming back to paintball and feeling more nostalgic this seems like the place to do some socializing and shopping.

I wanted to get into pump paintball. I checked YouTube and found little help other than cockerpunk and Rob Reuban's video. Both of them mentioned this site and I checked it out. Happy I did!

I'm on TechPB but I don't go there very often. My ideas are often sneered at. I suggested a low capacity force fed loader and got totally flamed. Once the R7 rumor went around I went back and posted a link to my old thread asking when they suddenly changed.

Got no response from them.

You know anymore I can't really remember. Heck I avtually find it hard to really recall any of my "pre-MCB" days. It's my home anymore and I've found more clear headed chats, friendly and accepting folks here than anywhere else. I mean, we have people from ever race, color and creed, everyone is represented in some small part here in our little community. Can't really ask for any more than that.

I was posting on pumpplayers.org, PBN and StockClassPaintball.com. Whenever MCB would go down, people would show up on other forums and basically start an MCB Off Topic thread, wondering when it would be back up.

That first got me over here, but I wasn't really interested in the retro gear at first. I had my Phantom and that was good enough for me. I think the gun du jour at that point was the Vector, and the Hurricane was a close second.
