Here's How You Play Real "Winterball"

Thought I'd share with you folks. Permission has been granted by the photographers themselves.

Just so you have an idea, it was -13*C with the windchill at -18*C. Yeah, it was THAT cold. Coldest I've ever played and yes, I'd do it again!

I really liked the camera angles and how it followed the players. Really smooth movement, especially for trodding in the snow! The vid was cool and funny and made me jealous of 1) the field 2) white winters.

Looks like fun.
THe only time I've played in sub-zero temps, it was a disaster. Paintballs were freezing, and if you broke a ball, it would squeegee out like a popsicle.

So how was the functionality of those markers during play? Just curious as I've heard so many stories of winter ballin being ruined by finnicky markers.

I love how fluid this video looks. I cant imagine playing in cold weather like that. Im cold on like 50 degree days. Looks like you all had a great time though.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

I'm pretty sure I saw a few a5s [or x7s] a phenom, and a crossover in there. Other than that, yes there were 98's.
