Player 1:  "Ref . . . overshooting!  Ref!"


I lol'd.

I think it is a cool concept but like Stormy said, I wouldn't stand to be eliminated from a game without actually being hit.

[sarcasm]What's to stop somebody from making an artillery card?  I can see it now just as the game begins a player calls a ref over to use his card to fire a shell at the opposite end of the field.  Boom.  Other team completely eliminated without a shot being fired.  Game over.  Yeah, that is just good fun.[/sarcasm]

Well, there is an air strike card (not sarcasm).

Okay. You're in a bunker. The bunker was hit with a LAW. You're caught in the blast. You're out. Not much different; you weren't hit by a paintball...

Look, this is one of those "don't knock it until you try it" things. I can understand how it doesn't sound appealing, but it actually works out quite well when applied.

Ugh.

F-- on this idea.

I swear, if I showed up to a game and this was enacted, I'd go home. Why in the hell should some dude dressed in a bush suit be able to get me out just by looking at me? When I see opponents from concealed positions all the time and can't do anything about it because they're out of range?

Crap on this. It's absolutely ridiculous. We're amending the rules of the game to pander to video-induced conceptions of awesomeness that these kids have of the game and combat simulations.

I think I'll sell all my markers, buy a ghillie and a deck of tarot cards, and I can be the most successful paintball player out there.....or....would I not be a paintball player anymore?

I still hate it, because....even if you're a general, what paintball player stays in one place long enough for the 'sniper' to call the referee, who walks over and tags the guy? What's to say that this 'sniper' doesn't cheat and radio the ref and say 'Yeah, uh, I sniped the general, but he moved from where he was before you got there.....I swear I got him though' while in reality, super-camper never saw the general at all. How does the ref know?

Its another excuse to pander to the crowd who watched too much tv or plays too many video games.
