@ Lohman446 I can see I won't be able to persuade you to accept my version of reality so I'll let it rest for now, though I think you'll come around if you ponder it a bit.
I'll accept the disagreement and note it may well end being one of wording. Perhaps I have already thought about it too much. I'll PM you to avoid this becoming a long winded discussion here

I've gotta disagree on one thing, I started wearing the dye core arm pads recently b/c I play in short sleeve shirt's mostly (it's hot in FL) and I'd either end up scraping the crap out of my forearms or getting nice allergic reactions from crawling through all the vegetation.
I wear those pads for protection, and they are the most comfortable without being bulky. I do benefit from more arm bounces, but those aren't "vital" areas anyway and I usually call myself out on any body/neck/head shot regardless of break.

Basically I agree with you except for forearm pads.

Padding and the requiring a break to be out rule are the major factor for overshooting. As a primarily pistol and pump player, getting unnecessarily lit up by some prick wannabe-speedballer who doesn't know how to fire 1-2 shots at a time, gets old quick.

dont do that either, youll just use 10x the amount of small words needed to say nothing.

it doesnt matter what shape you see morality as, circular...rectangular... cheating is cheating, in any game. you know if your playing as a good sport or not. play like a prick, noone wants to play with you.

im sick of being overshot because everyone thinks "maybe those all bounced". i have 4 huge bruises on my calf from 4 weeks ago. the guy couldnt see the paint breaking, so decided to shoot me in the leg until i started walking towards him yelling 'im out! whats your damn problem?'. my hands went up, and i just kept getting shot 'i didnt know if they were breaking'. he was like 20 ft away.
