Speedball pretty much means what it's name says it is:

You try to shoot 340923814128374 paintballs at the other team before they can shoot them at you.

Right, too hard to explain. Basically, woodsball without trees, air bunkers, fast paced, no snipers(never should be), and thats pretty much it.

This is not always true. I typically play 3 man and rarely go through a hopper. The games are very fast and you don't usually get a chance to just sit and burn.

The scoring is different, but where I play it works out like this:

50 points for a flag pull. This means that the flag is placed at center filed and the team that grabs it first gets 50 points.

20 points for a hang. This means that if you can get the flag to the opposing teams starting box you will get 20 points.

7 points for every opposing team member you get out.

3 points for every team member remaining on your team at the end.

This gives you a possible score of 100 points. If you get that it's called a Max.

The tournament brackets will be based simply on who has the most accumulated points.

Well, I don't about tournaments, but speedball is woodsball- just like a 300 meter run is like a 100 meter run. It's just a different field layout- which is why I find it funny the woodsball guys and the speedbal guys act like they're so much better than each other because they play woods or speed. It's like saying because I play paintball I can school you paintball playin' wussies- it doesn't make any sense.

You have basically have a frontman, 2 mid-men, and 2 backs. Fronts don't shoot too much and should be very quick becuase they need to get to the opposing team's side without getting marked. The mid players are basically to stay in the middle of the field and help out the front player. front player. The back players stay in the back bunkers and just fly paint to the enemie's team.

I play front, it's fun!
