I'll be completely honest. I almost always know when I'm hit. Granted, I play x-ball, so there tends to be quite alot of paint in the air.  Even then though, it's not about feeling the hit, it's learning how to ignore it unless it's an obvious hit.

The pain never really goes away. Its always going to hurt the same amount, what changes is how you deal with it. Eventually it becomes just a notification that you screwed up...

Yeah, hits are going to hurt no matter what. Most of the time though, your adreneline will be rushing, which will take a bit of the "ouch"-factor out of it.

The pain is always there, everyone should admit that. It is just the pain seems to go away faster because you don't care and want to get the next game going. As long as you don't concentrate on the pain, it won't be there as long.

You play X-Ball! Honestly, you just went up like 30 E-points. I love X-ball and I didn't know any of the regs played speedball (except for Gatyr)...or even paintball for that matter.

The pain usually dulls down over time. And with a mixture of adreniline, sometimes you won't feel the hit at all.

Yeah, you'd think that with the T&O and Regs posts being filled with
people who don't play anymore. I haven't played tournaments in years,
but still play each month at least twice and try to play speedball for most
of that. I'm getting back into the tournament scene with the Pev's X-ball
league this spring.

I agree whole heartedly with USAFPilot on this point though, while you
may know you've been hit, it usually doesn't hurt as much AND in
speedball/tournaments you play on unless it's obvious.

Yup.

I play for QueenCityKillers, or QCK, out of Charlotte, NC.  We're going to be playing D3, or D2, PSP X-ball, and D2 CFOA Xball this season. 


P.S. I look better than Gatyr, and 7-man isn't as cool as xball.

It's always going to hurt, and occasionally a surprising amount. Usually you get so into a game that you're less concerned with the pain of it than the "oh crap I forgot to clear that tower I just ran by". It's more annoying that you have to stop playing. Besides, few hits ever really seems to hurt for that long after impact anyways.

when i played tournies, i couldn't feel the hits...  unless i got bunkered...in which, i had a paintball rip my shirt...  i think they where shooting a little hot.  however, i have never cheated.  if i catch someone cheating, i will make the rest of their day miserable.
