ok today we went woodsballin. we have this open area with some big clumps of trees and a windbreak goin along one side. so we were playing CTF 3v3 and i had went through the windbreak and all the way to their flag, came back through the windbreak, got their flag, went back through the windbreak again, and back to my side.... now there's this kid on the other team that's been shot in the face before because he took off his mask in a game, which he does a lot, and he's the type that will shoot you till you clearly hold your gun and hands in the air and yell "I'm out".... so i'm coming back through this windbreak right where our flag is, and i see my teammate and this kid standing there talking with their masks off. so i'm like "Ok they are both out" in my mind. I start walking towards them, gun down but mask still on cause i'm in, and this kid pulls up and starts shooting at me, using my teammate without his mask on, as a bunker. and there was a train going by at this time so we couldn't communicate. so he's shooting at me with his mask off, and i'm crouched down hands up screaming, "WHAT THE HECK" (only more profane). i get hit in the face and he finally stops shooting and i just throw my mask off and start yelling at him. to my surprise he doesn't admit that was stupid, he yells at me and says I'm out. I was so mad. I told him I would never shoot at anyone with their mask off, and he just says "I don't care. Shoot at me with my mask off, it's my fault if I get hit in the face." I couldn't believe it. We are cool now i guess and i'll be making sure the rules are known next time.

oh no, I read it.

It would piss me off too. Way back, when I still played, if some one had their mask off in game on my field... they were ejected with out question.


But, just for your own personal knowledge. We dont generaly talk about Paintball in the T&O.

Dude I was the teammate. He took cover behind me. I was right in the open waiting for the game to end close to the edge of the field. I was standing in that spot before and I saw the kid first and I raised my hand to tell him I was out and he just started shooting at me.

I hate it when people do that. During a woodsgame with some people I hadn't played with before, I was creeping along beside this road into the woods on their property. These kids were all huddled in a group, walking down the middle of the road, four easy eliminations. They had no idea I was there, and I had a clear line of sight.

Just as I'm about to fire the tall one takes off his mask and stands there chatting for awhile. I knew if I stepped off right then his buddies would start firing. They had already exibited how stupid they were off the field, and this sealed the deal. I called him on it in front of his friends and he denied it.

It was a bad day and I never played with those guys again.

They had no idea what a chrono was or how to use it. When I showed them and told them to keep it under 300 they looked shocked, as all of them were firing closer to 450. I could tell when the first guy hit me that he was way over.

The kids were throwing a frisbee up into the air and shooting at it. Nobody has masks on and wouldn't listen when we asked them to put them on because "we're not on the field." Then the frisbee went over their heads and towards the truck where my friend and I were sitting. And those dumb kids shot at it as it went over their heads, and bent over backwards as it came to us, still firing. The guns were upside down because they'd bent backwards and not feeding paint, so I'm not blind, but I haven't yelled at strangers like that in a looong time.

Sometimes you have to just walk away and leave the work to Darwin.

If someone does hold you hostage in a game without a mask on. Hit him and get away.

that happens with us too. there is always this one kid who has his mask off in the middle of a game. it ticks me off because i'll have a clear shot at him but i cant shoot so i walk over to him and tell him to put his mask on. (we once had an incident where a person was shot without a mask and it hit right below the ear. it could have been much worse)

maybe everyone should have their mask on anyway?  until they're in a safe zone?  sounds like a good idea to me.

i would have gotten very pissed off.  it's people like that that give a bad name to paintball.  they're just out to hurt people.

nah, i know where you guys are coming from, but you forget how paintballs break.  they don't just bust and fall to the ground, the shell usually breaks and shoots all over the place....  that's why masks are ALWAYS essential while shooting at anything closer than 10ft.  but you should wear your mask all the time when shooting a marker, but it's usually okay as long as you're very carefull.
