who cares if they have egos, theres your first problem...dont think just because they have a "highend" doesnt mean yall cant take them.....skill not eh gun...

and um...dont do energy drinks and crap like that if its hot, drink lots of water the day before, (a gatorade or two throughout the whole day, and just keep chugging water!)

Communitcate alot, depending on how far apart the bunkers are you'd probably want to have atleast 2 guns up off the break, if you try a play and it works out for you use it once more but not again (other teams will be watching to see how you guys play and if you do the same thing over and over they'll catch on), watch to see how other teams play to find their weaknesses. That's all I can think of for now

Make sure all your stuff is working 100% the night before and then show up early and check it because something will always go wrong. Watch the more experienced teams and how they handle situations, this will help you a lot. Above all, have fun and talk it up with some other ballers. This will help you relax which will help you play and think better and also it will improve your tourny experience and that will keep your love for the game and keep you coming back.

Well I know your no playing but advice is always good. Here is what I teach to all new players at my field.

1) Walk the field. Sit in every bunker and see where you can get shot from. Do this for every bunker and I mean it. Look for blind shots good bunkers, bad bunkers, etc.

2) After walking the field create 2 break outs. Only two and run them every game. Your in a 3 man it will work.

3) Take care of your body. Go to sleep early, Drink water, dont drink pop, energy drinks. During the tourny drink water, Gatorade, etc. (I drink cut Gatorade during the day i.e. Half Gatorade/Half Water)

4) Have fun and dont stress out. It isnt worth it and paintball is meant to be fun.
