warfare = mass combat, in the first games there were no teams, you used your personal skills against a few others acting individualy.

I was first introduced to the sport back in '86 when I was 4. My parents say that my dad came back after playing for the first time and told us the stories. My twin and I were hooked. I imagined it was a powder splat instead of wet for some reason.

Then, when I was about 13 or 14, in 95-96ish, We played our first game. It was scary. My pump rental had terrible velocity, but I didn't know better to get a new one. I got one elimination, my twin, by catching his watch. One game it came down to 8 adults with semis to me. Scary...

We played it two more times, and though it was fun, we hid most of the time. It wasn't until after college that I got back into it, got my first marker, started hanging out on pbreview and learning. From that point on, I was hooked.

I play mostly pump, because of my phantom. It was made in Oregon, I live in Oregon, it was my second new marker, and still my most expensive out right purchase (though my mags are a little more now). I didn't start pump because of the reduced cost, though that is a nice bonus. I did it for the challenge and to stand out. I always have to stand out. I've never had the same marker as another person on the field. It's a good conversation starter, especially when the other walk on's (my main type of play) say "what's that?"
