Default First paintball tournament - NERVOUS!!

Yep that's right. I'm going to a paintball tournament at Antioch Paintball. It's a three man tourny. It's the first tourny I've ever been in. I'm really nervous by what to expect and not looking like an idiot. AQny incouragment?

The best advice in the world...Check your equipment before the morning of the Tourny. Air it up, make sure it's not bouncing, leaking, your loader has fresh batteries and is feeding right, etc. That way you don't have to deal w/the anxiety and stress of having to deal with that before you walk on the field...and make sure your teammates do the same.
Short of that, relax, have fun, and do your best.

it is..there is a whole lot less strategy and more individual skill..one really good player could win a 3man for his team most of the time. just alot more individual skill is shown in 3man,imo

Yep i agree, that happened to me a two of my friends.....There was a small local tournament and three of us entered....well 45 seconds into the match im left alone and i PWND the crap out of the other team who still had three people.........The refs gave me props they said that they basically had me surrounded but when you see a 6 foot 215 lbs guy come from behind a bunker yelling like a mad man you kind of get shocked

Make sure your not the teammate that doesn't get half way to the snake...dive for a dorito...lay his gun in front of him...put his hands on his head...and scream like an infant and call himself out.

Yeah...I was in such shock seeing that unfold before my eyes, I forgot I was in the middle of a game and got lit up.

After you see something like that...there is nothing to be worried about.
