What he said, who really cares? No one wants some 200 word reason on the issue anymore.



Who cares about snipers in paintball, what I really want to know is why people who are so disturbed by sniper threads seem to be compelled to repeatedly return to them and bump them back to the first page.  Is it just me or does this seem like a "duh" moment?

I think the sniper fascination basically boils down to new players afraid to get hit. Sniper sounds better then coward, when you foolishly think you will have the ability to do your work efficiently at a distance. I mean come on, if you are so far back that you cannot even contribute suppressive fire... Reminds me of a famous Patton quote something like: "No one ever became a hero by dieing for their country. You become a hero by making those other poor SOBs die for thiers."

 I think new players should start out playing small games (4 players) with pump markers - As did most of us growing up.

Think and give them all you have from the beginning, and never weaken!

Some of us believe in sniping. Others don't. It's a totally inconsequential and insignificant question, and there will never be a consensus. Stop bringing up this crap.


Beavis, you're an illiterate tool. You're an embarassment to the language and to western culture. Kindly cut off your fingers and stop posting these inane replies.

What the heck? Is this even English?

And Vraptor, nobody cares about the poll. It's not doing any harm to anybody, it's been officially established snipers don't exist, and if someguy wants to spend his whole life clicking on a poll.....so what? he's not doing me any harm, nor you, nor anyone else on this board. And Rambino has better things to do than watch a poll (like play with a new C3)

if you get someone out they are out it doesnt matter how you do it. so sniping is just a person who decides they dont want to get shot. wimps.

 

these are the people you use to play hide and seek with and then you would purposely forget about them.

noob


Yeah,  how many people have already said that  paintballs are just to inconsistent?  how many people said that they just don't shoot far enough? 

Sniping in paintball  is yes,  for those who we TRY to forget in hide and seek.   Snipers  are those who come off the field with nothing to talk about.  They sit by the side of the group listening in on how people played the game and didn't sit and watch their team do all the work.   Snipers are the ones who do nothing in the nfirst part of the game  and when the other team comes,  they surrender cause they're to afraid  to shoot back when they're this close. 

I've seen so many "snipers"  sit in the back of the field and just take their little pot shots at 150 +  feet and never hit anybody,  then their team gets owned because of the snipers who don't hit anybody. 
Then the bad guys come back with the flag and see this sniper who's wettin his pants  cause he didn't have the guts  to help his team and now  the people that he didn't snipe  are comin for him. 

I walked within 10 FEET of one of these "snipers"  once  and he didn't shoot me.

He simply let me walk past and score the flag.
The good thing was that,  he ADMITTED he was terrified. 
He said he was SCARED cause he didn't want to get SHOT.
This guy was sitting in the back of the field "sniping"  people  and when his whole team was eliminated he cowered  in the back.

My experience with snipers is that they are the lowest form of pathetic newbs.
In a world where everyone has gone mad, only the lunatic is truly sane.

Since my first two not-so-subtle hints apparently passed you by, I will spell it out for you:

1.  Nobody cares about your poll.

2.  Nobody cares whether your poll is accurate.

3.  Nobody cares whether somebody is stacking your poll.

4.  This is the internet - people stack polls all the time.

5.  This is the internet - people lie and cheat all the time.

6.  This is the internet - nobody cares.

7.  More to the point, I do not care whether your poll is being stacked or not, and neither does any other Mod.

8.  Even if I did care (which I don't) I have no way to check the accuracy of your poll.

9.  Even if I did have a way to check, I have about eleventy-thousand other Modding things that are more important.

10.  Modding is not a job - we are all volunteers with actual day jobs.  We come here and delete offensive posts in our spare time.

11.  Nobody is going to check your poll.  Not now, not ever.

Allright, maby this will help. Rambino has a life. He's probably got a full time job. Maybe a wife and kids. He's got friends he hangs out with. And you know what? He probably even plays paintball in his free time! He's not going to live on the internet, just to mod your stupid poll, which no cares about. And as a mod, his job is to keep the forum in order. If everything is good (no flames, no bad language), then he doesn't need to post. A mod's job goes far beyond just posting.

And concerning your poll:

NOBODY CARES!

I feel myself caring about the accuracy of this poll.





No, wait a minute now.




Never mind, I wasn't experiencing caring, it was just a gas bubble.

Well, I think this has seen more than its day.

Rambino, unlock it if you feel like I've overstepped, but I dont think this thread can serve any serious purpose anymore.
