80% skill

20% Gun

I rate it like this because if you have a gun that does not shoot consistent, bust paint , and makes balls curve bad than you wont get any wheres but if you have a decent gun that does not do those things and are a good player than well  you get the picture.

I say its 70% skills, 25% gun and 1% luck... My reasoning is because it takes skill to have the reflexs and aimging to shoot some one .. the gun is important also so that your skill can work and your paintball wont go flying in another direction.. its also a little luck of popping out or cathing sum1 from behind.. thats my reasoning

You people read way to much into jokes that are made on this forum. But its all good, Its how I have fun on here.

And of course I havent been in a real war. Im 16, and I play paintball. If I wanted to play war, I would do airsoft or enlist. What kind of question is that.

This thread is to old anyway.

im on a paintball team called team impy cuz most of us have impulses(except me i have my perfictly good tippmann). the three of us versed 2 people with basically stock 98customs. the only thing done 2 their guns were 14 inch barrels.those guys beat 2 rat impulses and a hooked up tippmann with stock tippman 98 customs. we got beaten so badly. I think its 99% skill!

Quote probably because your buying a name. For example, why does a harley davidson cost so much? Because of the name. It doesnt mean it's the best, but that name has built a reputation, just like the name angel, e-blade cocker, and shocker. You hear those names and everyone of us automatically thinks of a great gun. It's skill all the way though


Its not always the name though. Your also paying for the materials its made from and what certain specials functions they contain that other items don't.
