Default What would you change about paintball?

Well, every now and then, PBN comes up with a thread that seems to be worth passing around to other forums. I saw this one yesterday (though it appears to have been started about a year or so ago) and thought that it sparked some interesting debate, along with the same old stupid answers you get over there...

Last year, I had the "VS" threads (you remember the "this vs this" threads where I chose a certain subject, but then it got horribly overblown with everyone else jumping in with their own versions? Yeah, that's the one...) So I thought, what a great way to start off this summer...

So, here's the FIRST question I have for you this summer. What are the TWO things you would change about the current state of paintball.

Rules:

1. Debate is allowed. Arguing and flaming is not. P - E - R - I - O - D! I'm on vacation and don't want to deal with attitudes. (Get the picture? )
2. List more than 2 things, and your post gets deleted. Continue to do it, and you get a vacation. This is supposed to inspire deep thought, not random whining.

Ok, on your mark........

get set ............

GO!

1. The rate of fire. Semi auto is fine with me but I prefer under 12 bps...something to bring back skill. I used to call tourney ball a "chess game with guns". Now it's 300 gallons of paint in the air.

2. The gangster attitude of alot of people that play. This is a sport afterall and people seem to forget that. Sportsmanship is greatly lacking.

1. I wish all the HK/AGG kids would grow up and stop ruining the game for some of the old school players and the new kids that are coming to the sport.

2. If some of the pro players in our sport would try to set a better example for the newer ppl. If some of the pros would stop over shooting so badly all the lil kids wouldn't think it was cool to put 10 extra balls in someones back.

We can do this WITHOUT avoiding the swear filter. Try again.

Oh, for technicalities sake - consider this a warning!

1. Allow rocking triggers since they don't make you shoot faster and its 1 shot 1 pull.
2. Also the only paint your taking to the field is whatever fits in your hopper. Makes the game a bit more stratigic, since you don't have enough paint to just unload on a bunker waiting for a guy to pop out.

I agree with STRIKEFIRST also.

1.Prices of markers, accessories etc are wayyy too high.
2.I hate to say it but, we need paintball markers that DONT resemble real guns because that gives people ideas..Most people are good about realizing that its just a game, but there are some select few who will ruin it for all of us eventually and give the sport an even WORSE name.

1. No more 12-14 year olds allowed at fields. I hate 99.9% of them because all they do is say "angel better".
2. Cheaper prices, I can understand a gun would be expensive but some paint these days are $70 a case......

1. Make paintball a bigger sport that more people know about so its easier to play more often.
2. Lower the cost of everything.

Hahaha, everytime I showed up with a new gun at the field, one of the Noobs at the field would tell me, "Yeah, I'm gonna get an Angel!" Like it's the only high end gun out there...

I can't understand why the guns are so expensive. You can get an actual firearm for hundreds less. I don't even understand why the tanks are so expensive...
