Honestly, woodsball blows.  Speedball is where it's at if you want to play paintball.  Milsim is just something military wannabes get into to fuel their desire to look manly and feel like they have some sort of power.  All in all, the whole game is just a very elaborate and expensive version of "tag".

Now, that's just my opinion.  I'm open to whatever anyone has to say, if these "anyones" actually have anything to say.

Wow trog, trolling much?

Speedball's great, I try to play it as much as possible as it's my favorite type of game. But seriously, purposefully trying to re-kindle a flame war is just lame.

Woodsball is just a wannabe compared to speedball?? Which came first? Granted, it's your opinion, and I'll respect that. I started playing and still prefer woodsball, but I've had fun when speedball was the only thing my field was playing. Both are fun, even if they appeal to different tastes.

As far as milsim, meh, I wouldn't pay out to make my 98 look like a military issue assault rifle, but I do want it to 'feel' like one.

What I'm saying is that, to me, a fake magazine or an AK or M4 barrel kit seem pointless, even if they look cool. But I do want a stock. There's nothing like having a good butt stock to stabilize your marker as a shooting platform. The downside? Yeah, it's going to be a little awkward if I'm doing a speedball bunker crouch. It's a price I'm willing to pay for the stability and the feel that I'm shooting a gun (as opposed to operating a piece of sports equipment).

Style, feel, look and functionality have different values to different players.

For me as a woodsball player to state that speedball is just a cheesy counter-strike experience is like having a PC user bashing on Mac, or PC gamer bashing on Console gamers.

I may not prefer speedball, or enjoy it as much, but I can still respect it. Everybody has their own style and preferences.

Come back after months and the same old arguements prevail.

Mil-sim v new tech

Woods v speed

I dont mind mil-sim, i mind the idiots who think they know the guns when they dont know crap, we have AR-15's M1A's and that kind of stuff and when i hear kids at school talking like they know the stuff so well and what their saying is just stupid. i just about explode i find mostly airsoft kids do this, i had one airsoft kid at school tell me how good he was and how he can snipe people from 25 yards, talking as if its hard to do, i can throw a rock atleast 75 yards easy. but if you make your gun look mil-sim that fine just dont act like you know things about the real gun. and some mil-sim stuff is useful, im lookin to get a folding stock for my gun and a massive drop forward for my tank because my prefence is woodsball/urban but i like speedball also, so id like to have the stock for woods and be able to fold it up and make it so i can hold close to me for speedball, just my opinion .
Sorry for long post.

Heh, I know how you feel. I love guns, but I have very little experience. I've had a little range time with an M16A2, but to claim that I would be a good shot with a rifle would require a sociopathic ability to lie on my part.

On the whole milsim/woods/speed subject, I just want to repeat, I didn't want to flame anyone; I just prefer woods to speed. Both can be fun.

I'm currently puting a tacstock, drop forward and sight rail on my T98c, I can't wait to get that setup on the feild.

THAT pisses me off. It's like the kids who play CS 3-4 times and think they know everything about guns.

I love MilSim I can't stand red/blue shiny guns, I NEED the matte black weapons and stuff. I don't need to have a marker that looks exactly like a real gun, but at least look like it could be a real world firearm.

That being said I personnaly can't stand Speed Ball, though I have the upmost respect for them as I realise that It does require a good trigger finger and even better knees.

I like more the slower paced MilSim and Scenario matches, gives me the time to think and make less misstakes (die less :P).
