It does block the vision if you close one eye, and aim down it like a traditional scope. However, if you open both eyes and aim down the sight, then the little dot/cross hair super imposes itself on your designated target.
A collimator sight is a type of optical sight that allows the user looking into it to see an illuminated aiming point aligned with the device the sight is attached to regardless of eye position (with little parallax). Collimator sights are blind sights, they are used with both eyes open while one looks into the sight, with one eye open and moving the head to alternately see the sight and then at the target, or using one eye to partially see the sight and target at the same time. Collimator sights are a relatively old idea, being used in many forms for almost 100 years. They are also referred to as collimating sights or "occluded eye gunsight" (OEG).
As for your original question, is RF/LF, then Powerfeed, then Vert feed. Vert feed was established as it was suggested that a gun with a taller ball stack would feed faster then the powerfeeds with the loaders at that time. As the loaders got faster, the vert feeds got shorter and people learned to shoot with both eyes open.
As many do, people compare paintball markers to real guns and try to shoot them based on what they have learned in the past. You have to change your shooting style to get optimal performance with a paintball marker. Also, I don't know if you ever used a double triggered marker before, but how many times have you seen a double trigger on a real firearm ? To all the genius's out there, I'm referring to a two finger trigger, not the double action on a double barrel shotgun.

I have shot left right and center. Center is the easiest to play with in my experience. I can go left or right handed. And it is not off balanced.

I would say that it's a combination on factors...
1) sight use is on the decline. Offset feeds were built specifically so that all players could install a sight, or at least sight down the barrel... (Danoman's last point... People were used to sighting firearms down the barrel or with a sight there.)
2) Center feed is simpler to design and simpler to make. Probably some savings in production cost at volume, too.
I like rf/lf guns too... Partially because there aren't a lot of them made anymore.
You know what's DEFINITELY staying dead? Powerfeed.

I much prefer a RF 'gun. I shoulder the 'gun on my right and having the hopper on the right opens up my field of view during play. I also use a red dot sight and like having as little as possible in my sight path. I have no problems sighting with both eyes open.
Right feed/left feed 'guns are preferred equipment for those with stronger shooting backgrounds with real steel. Center feed 'guns are preferred mostly by those players with little shooting background outside paintball.
There are negatives to CF over RF/LF if the player perceives there to be - despite what one of the above posters states.

I hope RF would gain more popularity again. Then I could shoot hoppers all day long.
In woodsball, its not that critical, but in speedball it is. Thatīs also where most guns are designed.
You're on an internet forum.
Every first post is a cry for attention.

I am however pretty driven at the moment to get into some magazine/warp feed/qloader action though, just so I don't have a hopper of any sorts hanging out the side of the bunker. Just the barrel and an eyeball.
