stand in the middle of the field.

if they dont....
split the teams up without them.

have half walk, half stay
when they either walk or stay
now 1 team has more say hey 2 of you guys need to go to the other end

we had that problem at my old indoor field.

they would come on a rec day and play 5 vs walkons/renters all day
they wiped, they cheated, they cursed, they were stoner idiots
nobody liked em, nobody could really beat em as a team.
but when you split them up, they sucked, they fell apart, they went away.


IF THE REF WONT TAKE CONTROL, SOMEBODY HAS TO.

Good Idea!

And I wanted to reiterate this point

IF THE REF WONT TAKE CONTROL, SOMEBODY HAS TO.

maybe one more time too

IF THE REF WONT TAKE CONTROL, SOMEBODY HAS TO.


Just make sure its you and dont give that 'team' the chance to take it for themselves, because they have before and will again if given the chance...

When I played last week I was playing with my sniper with autotrigger and I just so happened to be the last guy left on my team so when this happens I was able to hold off a 3 vs 1 for about 5min (in the woods). Then the reff yells out just go get him he's only got a pump . So now I have three kids with elecrtos charging at me! I get hit and raise my arms yelling out and still get blasted by abot 10-12 more shots. I started yelling at this kid and he kinda got scared and said that he did not hear me yell out. My team even said that they heard me across the field. Later I heard someone say that he goes "deaf" on the field and he can never hear his team. Don't really matter tough because I won a by myself with three guys against me later in the day. With my "stupid" pump gun!

Muffinman you aren't all that far from me. I'd be interested to know what field...I'd also be interested in showing them how to play properly.


Also to repeat this one more time....

No. I don't think grabbing another electro and blasting back is a strategy that works. The guys the OP is talking about obviously prefer that type of game anyway. So all that be accomplished from trying to hose them back is a waste of time, money, paint, and anger....The OP and anyone for that matter is far better off just physically moving to a different field and expressing their concerns to the field owners...over and over and over again...
No I agree with you. In the situation where there are rentals and newer players, yes a team who regularly plays together should split up to balance teams. And yes, shooting your teammates/friends is more of a challenge and more fun than "pounding" new players. I'm just saying that I can get where the guys the OP is refering to are coming from.

Sometimes the strategy works and sometimes it doesn't lol. And I am definitely not saying to do it out of anger. It's probably not the "correct" way to deal with the problem but what I am saying is sometimes people just deserve and *** beating

I love playing against members of my team. They are some of the best players I know and since they know how I play it keeps me on my toes. Best way to learn new tricks is when you play your buddies that know all of yours.
