I can't say I'm a "paintball player" but I have gone paintballing about 20 times. I'm pretty much sick of it. The thing is we keep going to the same field and maybe that's why I get bored. Also the guns we rent are pretty crappy.

Aha, that's why you gotta buy yourself a gun. I have about $1500 worth of paintball gear, it changes the entire experience.

When you have your own gun and gear, the game becomes a whole lot better. I play with the pros and lemme tell you, it's one hell of a thrill, beats playing with a bunch of newbies who come and don't know what their doing.

Btw, what did you play? Woodsball? Speedball? Xball?

Didn't think so, figured I'd give a try.

Anyway, I'm really into it, I spent a crapload of money on it, but at the end of the day, it's fun.

I have gone a couple of times but its kind of hard if you wear glasses because the googles always tend to fog up even with the anti fog spray.

Thats why you buy goggles with Thermal lenses, I have the empire Events, awesome mask, the thing never fogs up.

I would venture a guess that Woodsball is played in a wooded field, Speedball is played in a small field with a whole bunch of obstacles and I have no idea what Xball is...

Your right, xball is basically the same thing as speedball just that it has a large X in the center of the field. Once your past that you basically won the game.

Corny, dude seriously man, you gotta try it sometime, I'm looking forward to the day I can mow your face!!! LMAO

when you don't know something you don't have to guess, just look it up on wikipedia
