Default Why they keep shooting?

Im starting at paintball and i have enter little tournamnets... and my Q. is why if a dude shoots you and he saw that was direct hit and the ref. is tellin me that im "dead" why they keep shooting?? One time someone shoted me in the head and a very short distance and i tell you that it relly hurts and leave me atonished, and the guy who shot me saw that i was grabbing my head in pain and he continued shooting at me... well, i think if a new player that whats to start at the sport and he/she sees that, i think it would be not a good presentation for the sport.. what do you think??

You ran your word's together a little bit and it was kinda hard to decipher what you were saying but it sound's like you just got shot by the wrong guy who takes pride in overshooting I guess to make him feel better about himself.

Next time it happen's take it up with a ref if he doesn't help you take it up with the owner of the field.

well, I think those players like the one that keep shotting at you,(you know, seein you how you was suffering, or grabbin your head with a lot of pain).....i will say they are pus%........next time, go and talk with the owner field to fix that up......if the owner do not fix that up....i will suggest change your palce to play paintballl....

Hello and welcome.

Lets see from my experience in tourneys and reason why I keep shooting someone when I know that they are already shot is to get them off the field faster. Sorry. Some of the people on the opposing team walk off too slow so that they can still call out people and where my team mates are at. As a Back player it is my duty to escort them off the field as quickly as I can so that they don't have time to relay that my front men have moved up. Sorry but it is true.

I shoot, and shoot, and shoot, and keep shooting until you get the heck off my field. I don't care what the ref is saying to you, you aren't out until you walk off, so until then, I'll keep shooting. The worst thing you can do is shoot someone once and then move to shoot someone else. We lost our first game at Cup because one of our guys shot out someone, then exposed his body to that guy to shoot someone else...the first guy played on and shot out half our team.

He did say it was in a tourney didn't he. Goes back to that punctuation thing!

Yep. If this was Rec ball it would be a different story. I don't overshoot in rec ball...

It's called 'bonusballing' and most fields regulate against it. The reasons for it could be:
1. To ensure a person has too much paint on to 'wipe'
2. To enflict pain
3. To make them feel better about their own inadequacies as a person, or baller

Remember who they are and next game, get 'em in the 'happy-sack'...then walk up to them and repeat these words....
"everytime I see you bonus ball someone like you did ME the last game, I will increase this reaction by 5 more balls."
