The recent spate of attacks on individuals is really uncalled for.Do read up more about paintball and know how the game works before we pass the death sentence on any individuals.The very disputes that us players have in malaysia is played out on all paintball fields around the world.Eg.newbies complaining that players do not admit to being shot by them,how they couldn't have missed from that distance,that they are being shot at close range,that players continue shooting even when they have been shot etc.etc.
newbies,please be aware of the following:
1.when under pressure,u don't shoot straight.u panic too much.your normally excellent shot at the target practice area is not recognizable.veteran players who shot u first will have killed u and your subsequent hits on them do not count.they don't have time to explain to u then as they have to deal with your team members as well.
2.learning to surrender and signal killed is very important.a swift decisive yell,raised arm or even general body language will do.non of the seniors are will like to waste more paintballs than they need to.they do want to know that they have eliminated the target,as do u.
3.the seniors want to promote paintball because they love the game,not because they want to trash individuals.
