2000 exactly iu pick most of my shots unless we play speed/x/airball

07-17-2008, 06:29 PM
Depending on the day, and which marker I've used, I'll go through 1000-1500 rounds in a day. But that's playing in the woods for recball, no sprayball.

MR2 W/eye- About 2000 (mostly use it for coverfire)
MR2 ACS-1000 (this is my filler gun if I play middel, flank light ect. or urban comabat)
MR1- 500 or so
Trracer pump-about 50-100 but every shot counts!

- if it's practice day, about 1000 to 1500 (depends what we're practicing that day)
- If it's speedball day, about a case, and up to two cases if I just feel like railing or if we're scrimmaging visiting tourney teams. (or if there's a couple of people who need a lesson - I don't overshoot them, but I make sure to hit their bunkers enough and whiz enough paint by their heads to let them know that they shouldn't be talking crap...) If it's just a bunch of cool guys or rec ballers, probably about a case or less.
- If it's woodsball day, about 1000 -1500, unless I'm using the pump.
- If it's pump day, about 300-400. Probably closer to 300 though (on a BUSY day - when I'm playing game after game and the shooting is intense, I may get close to 400 or more, but thats a lot of loading and pumping!)

I currently use no paint- because I dont play anymore.

When I played, Id go through atleast a case and a half on a not intense day. I love to shoot and I get pretty trigger happy :)

07-17-2008, 08:34 PM
I usually shoot 1000-2500, so I voted for the second to last choice. More so recently I shot 2000+.

But that "recently" has been a few months, being as I picked up pump play. :p

Now I'm shooting around 500 for the whole day.

07-17-2008, 08:37 PM
I use anywhere from 4-5 cases. I'm always ramping at 28bps with my Spyder VS1. :P

07-17-2008, 08:54 PM
Mostly about a case but sometimes more or less

07-17-2008, 10:42 PM
I usually stay under a case because I try to shoot conservatively.

07-17-2008, 10:45 PM
Being a pump player, I shoot 10-100 every game of rec. (Keep in mind, there are at least 10 people on the other side lmao)

Thats with a semi and pump. I can't stand wasting paint.

Btw, your poll cont with the post you made. Is it per play or per game? *sigh*

07-17-2008, 10:53 PM
Hmmm.... I'm confused. Ted's right, the poll is for PER GAME. But the OP says in his post, "on avg per day...."

WHAT DO YOU WANT????? :confused:

07-18-2008, 12:00 AM
Per day, usually over a case. Per game, I usually go through a hopper and a couple pods... but of course it varies.

07-18-2008, 01:25 PM
Depends, if it's less competative recball, I play hopper ball, in which case over about 4-5 hours of play, I'll go through maybe 1300-1600rnds.

If it is a more competative game, I'll use a couple pods per game, one just after the break and settling into my first bunker to refill for the game, and then usually one more towards the end of the game just to ensure I have enough paint if I'm stuck in a 1 on 1.

For tourney play though, whew, I played back/mid. I'd usually go through a hopper and about 5 pods a game. Sometimes more. I remember one time way back in the day I was playing a 3 man indoor tourney with my Angel, and I went out onto the field with about 9 pods, and I used every single one. That was a nuts game. I shot so many cases that tourney. Wasn't me shooting more intentionally though, just that like 5-6 teams were VERY trigger happy, so we had to shoot more just to pin them down and fend them off.

But pretty much, unless it's a tourney, a case will get me through the day. If I'm playing a little more competative recball, I'll buy two cases, but I'll usually have about a half to a quarter of a case left to take home.

i use about a case and a half.. just because im a bit trigger happy xP

Yeah, but sometimes those games are the most fun! The TAP Indoor I played years ago was like that - not much moving but a TON of paint in the air. I went through two cases in just 6 games and I shot less than everyone else on the team. I remember a couple of those games I carried as much as I could carry and shot through all those, and almost ran out of air in one of those games as well!

07-18-2008, 02:02 PM
The last 3 man tourney I played in...I shot exactly 2500 and played back/mid.

07-18-2008, 09:22 PM
Well, I guess I'll say what I consume paint-wise when I go playing... It depends on what gun I'm using. If it's the Cyborg, 2 cases per day, guaranteed. Even if it's just for one game, lol! If I'm playing with my Traccer, I'll probably use a case (I have a bad case of ADHD, and can't stick with one gun...). Per game, I use whatever I have on me with the Cyborg (normally my hopper and 4 pods) and a hopper and a pod for pump.
