ive been tryin to say the same things about speedball for along time, thanks you guys for gettin it out there, i hate how all the kids just starting paintball are goin strit for speed ball,wuts the fun in spray and pray? i hear ppl talk about all the big pros and teams but i hate hearin about that, id like to see team dynasty playin with all stock guns, that would be a real match, i realy respect those stock guys, there awesome and have excellent aim, playin stock is kinda like airsoft,(i dont play it much though) u have one or two shots at a time, you have to make those few shots count so in lamest terms...

Go WooDS BaLL!!

Maybe im just mad because i hate almost all "high end" guns, and if tippmann made something like that it would just convince more newbies that spraying paint and having no skill is what its all about.

I totally disagree. Just because its a high-end gun doesn't mean it wouldn't be good for the average rec-baller. Because it's a high-end doesn't mean its just designed to sling paint. It could have the durability and dependibility of a Tippmann while being ultra compact and 1/4 of the weight. It could be accurate right out of the box while being twice as efficient. If Tippmann never improved on their designs we would all still be using a Pro-lite. And it doesn't have to be a "speedball" gun just because its a high-end marker. What about the Tac-one or Carters. 


But what I do I do because I like to do.

Ok first off, I'm gonna defend the game of speedball.  Speedball is a completely different gameplay than woodsball.  They are setup to be a very fastpace game.  It's on a small course and it makes you feel almost trapped and pinned down 24/7.  It's not about stealth at all, it takes agility, strategy, and, most of the time, a fast gun.

Stating this as much opinionated as possible, yes, I myself play both woodsball and speedball, but I think speedball gets your adrenaline pumping at a level that woodsball could never do.  Woodsball tactics are about opposite from speedball.  In woodsball you try to be as covert as possible and steathy, trying not to be spotted.  In speedball, your in a small course and you know where everyone is.

You guys are saying that woodsball is for men, let's see you hide behind those "bubble bunkers" getting shot at by guns shooting 25bps, you'd soil yourselves.  Hidding in some brush with a ghuille suit and a camo'd 98c, waiting for someone to walk by so you could "snipe" them out doesn't take all that much skill.  Stop saying that woodsball is for men, because just because you don't get all that dirty playing speedball, that doesn't mean they aren't afraid do get covered in mud.

I'm not saying that woodsball doesn't take any skill, it's just that the skill needed for woods/speedball are way different.  This is for you guys that say there's no need for guns that shoot 20+bps.  Most of you guys that play woodsball and occasionally play on speedball fields notice that if you try to shoot only when you have a clear shot, you usually get pwned out by the speedball players by their ropes of paint flying at you.  Guess why?  Because it works to shoot faster when your in a tight spot with people all around you.

As I have pointed out, speedball and woodsball are two completely different types of gameplay for the sport of paintball.  It takes different skills for the game you play.  All I ask is that you discontinue the stereotype that woodsball players are "more manly" than speedball players because you get dirtier.

Now for the topic of a new Tippmann "highend marker."  I hope that eventually they do sink their teeth into the game of speedball.  Also opinionated, I believe speedball is for the more serious paintball players, and Tippmann knows that's where the money's at.

Yes, Tippmann makes undisputedly the best woodsball markers on the market, but you can't just stay with the 98c or A5 forever.  The future means change, and change is what is needed in order to keep up with today's society.

Tippmann, I think most everyone would agree, is mostly a "beginner's gun", not trying to knock it's reputation but it is true.  Very good quality beginner's guns none the less, but if they make a new gun for speedball, and it's a success, which most likely it will be, considering Tippmann makes some of the most innovative products on the market (cyclone, r/t, etc.), The community of paintball will look at Tippmann in a whole new perspective.

Overall, I think the idea for a high end gun in the future will only aid Tippmann in the conquest to TAKE OVER THE WORLD!  Haha, just kidding, but it looks like a bright future for Tippmann, but of course, only time will tell.

Good luck to Tippmann if this rumor is in progress, and keep up the good work.

As for you that actually took the time to read this post, I hope I didn't waste your time or seem to bash woodsball, by no means do I try to, but anyway, thanks for reading!

i dont like fast guns for these simple reasons... 1.they use alot of paint and i just dont have the money to keep up with that kind of paint usage 2. it only takes one hit to get someone out .... soo what about the other 30 balls already in the air after someone has called themselves out i know i appreciate it when someone only pulls the trigger once or twice and i try to do the same

Heard it was supposedly a Timmy with a Tippmann body or some crap like that.

If the paintball world were in fact an actual planet, I would drop an EMP on it, destroying once and for all, all electronics on Planet Paintball.

*Sigh* R.I.P. Tippmann. Once you go down the road of building crappy electronics, there's no turning back.

I'm going to agree with that. To me I am not impressed by a $1400 marker. It irks me when I see these young kids at the field who are playing with them and they think they are untouchable. To me the marker does not make you a better player. It is the player. My paint will break on you the same way whether it gets there by a Cocker or a C98.
I would hate to see a high end Tippmann. It would ruin the franchise. Why change something that is not broken?

eric

first thing why would it ruin the franchise if tippmann made a electro marker, seeing that theer name pretty much stands for quality and durable I dont think that there gonna make a brake able speedball gun, and maybe some people play speedball that like fast guns and some people like woodsball your talking like "ooh i dont like tippmann because of one product they make" and you have to admit there are advatages over a tippmann from a cocker, cockers are the most accurate gun on the planet. alot of stock tippy 98's are very unacurate and I want to make it clear that i have NOTHING against tippmann, (why would i be on the forums if i did) but why are you getting mad over this ?

I disagree with that I play speedball and I don't spray and pray I use my double trigger as a single man.

Uh let's see.

Have some multi-million dollar company buy your company out to help you figure out a way to make more money.

"Ok Tippmann company we've done some massive number crunching over a period of months and spent millions on research. Just keep building 98's and give us half the profit. Thank you and please come again"

actually accuracy has to do with the quality of the barrel and apaint to barrel amtch.
