Not playing nearly enough

I could care less if it became an olympic sport or not. But one format that I think could do well televised would be the 1 on 1, perhaps with limited paint. Turn it from a team sport to an individual sport (or a team with only one competitor on the field at a time), top gun style.

The cameras only have to focus on two players tops, getting regular sideline shots and mask cams for the action. Easy for the refs to keep eyes out for cheaters and the spectators to know what's going on.

Plenty of 1 on 1's I've experienced or witnessed had the two players ducking and circling and sprinting like madmen to get an angle or shake the opponent. Plenty of action to be spectated. Go with an x-ball style point system for each round and the games could last longer than 30 seconds too. If too many of these games turn into sit-it-out exchanges, maybe introduce a "shot clock" type timer to force players to move out of their bunkers or face penalties/loss of points etc.

I have always thought that 2 or 3 man stock class paintball in a mirrored arena, with identical guns, one 12 gram, and one tube of paint per opponent, would be about as sport-like paintball could ever become.

It's actually more exciting than the "professional" formats nowadays.
