I'm pretty sure that would be covered by the registration portion. My field is 18+, but 12+ with a parent signing the registration form for the minor.

I don't think it matters. I've seen plenty of 18+ people do the same thing. Hell I've seen 40 year olds light up a 12 y/o kid's back.

*edit* I should add the only thing that I've seen works really well is to send 5 really good guys after the asshat who lights up 12 y/o. Once the asshat is the victim they stop doing it to other people.

tournament paintball has different levels and you generally know what you are getting into from the word go - how many big events post up that players tend to hose a lot of paint and it is not for the faint of heart?
This. If I sign up for a tournament I know what I am getting into. Do the people who sign up for this know what they are getting into? What about the people who like big games without this type of play?

Just because you can shoot 13BPS does not mean you should.

These are not tournament wanna-be's. This is normal fare at a Scenario Game.

When I see scenario players routinely carry their paint out in wagons before a final battle - I think we need to not demonize the tournament players who carry a few pods in a pack.

Oh - and if you have a speed feed - why is your damned hopper lid always open.

according to the shooter, it was brand new and still very stiff, thus the lid being open.

I try not to demonize anyone on appearance alone - but action there are some that I am ok with and others I am not. excessive paint flying as you turn a blind corner can be dangerous.

its more a question of finding a happy place where folks know whats going on and accept where they are at in terms of volume of paint, method of play, etc.

I will be the first to say that when the conditions demand it - I can throw paint well, but I try to keep an eye out for people who are obviously new and do my best to go easy on em a bit or help them out. If we are to expect new blood to infuse our sport - we have to be willing to nurture it a bit eh?

=p

ah well - certainly a topic for many differing opinions

Okay guys back to point of this thread.... It is high rates of fire that scare away new and lesser experinced players. And that was the point that Russc was trying to make. The video just shows some of the high rates of fire out there.

I know this was at a big game where high ROF are the norm. But think of it at a walkon day. I have seen it happen at my local field. When high rates of fire are present newer player cringe in the staging area. Some dont even comeback!

If we keep scaring away new players there will be no one left to play.
