i think it would be even better if we went paintballing instead of just playing computer games, which we do together anyway....

we need gals...

I think paintballing would be fun becuase we could actually see who IS the best out of game, and in game. Much more interesting than just sitting at a computer for 120 or so hours. + i dont have a good enough machine yet :(

PAINTBALL SUCKS ASS!

paintball sucks beacause:

the vast majority of ppl who go there are friends of Rebb, and will cheat, shout abuse at and stab you. and generally be pricks.

paintball guns lookg ghey

paintball guns easily lose their hopper so u lose 50 paintballs and have to reload.

paintballs are heavy and big which means they can hurt when they hit u and they have a tiny range. they're also stupidly inaccurate.

paintball guns use gas. gas runs out quick and costs a lot to reload.

paintball games are unrealistic and stupid

yes, paintball sucks. well, it dosnt suck. i mean its fun, but it sucks compared to Airsoft.

WTF is airsoft? well airsoft is similar to piantball so far as its a bunch of guys running about shooting each other. but instead of using paintball guns, u use airsoft guns. these fire 6mm plastic pellets which dont hurt and go much further than paintballs, much more accurately. the guns are also replics of real life guns like MP5s, desert eagles, M16s, AK47s and so on. u can get heavy metal guns, light plastic guns, loud guns, quiet guns, guns that kick, guns that dont, guns that hold 500 pellets in a mag, guns that hold 30 pellets in a mag, sniper rifles, machineguns, shotguns, grenade launchers, revolvers, handguns, modern guns, WW2 guns, everything. most of the ppl who play are ex-military and everyone's pretty dedicated so u get LOTS of teamplay and coordination. and most ppl use realistic kit with helmets, webbing, kevlar, camo and so on. you almost certianly live with 1 hours drive of a skirmish site, probably less than that. takes about half an hour to get to either of the 3 i visit. everyone is very friendly. they'll giveu advice, help with any technical problems or confussion. they'll talk with you, maybe let you hold or shoot their gun a little. some of them may even lend u gear if ur in a spot of bother, like u forgot your magazines or something. renting a gun costs about 15 and ammunition is about 8 for 3700 pellets which will last 2 or 3 days of fighting if you're trigger happy.
there are also theme games, often influenced by films and games. there have been numurous Resident Evil days played in abandoned nuclear bunkers and the like. there's been a half life game i know of. there's stargate games, WW2 days, WW1 days, ultra-realistic days. but msot of the time its just regular come along and have some fun killing each other.
incase ur wondering, the pellets do not mark your clothes. it is down to you to know when you're hit and to 'take your hit' i.e. go back to the safe zone/hosipital until the next round/you get sent back in or wait for a medic to revive you. it is very easy to cheat. however in all my years playing i have only seen one or 2 ppl cheat, and they were swiftly removed.

there was an Airsoft Promotional Video a lil while ago that was absolutely awesome but it seems to have dissapeared from the net. its still on my old HD so ill try positing it up for you all, but for now, here's is the noly half-decent movie i could find.

The sleaping area is usally crowded and stuffy, so its sensible to bring a tenty.

i wasnt complaining about the pain, that was paul. but some ppl dont like it, and airsoft dosnt hurt.

i would be up for i-23 but i cant make it :( just guardian suggested paintball which is not of my pet peeves.

i agree

who cares?
paintball guns easily lose their hopper so u lose 50 paintballs and have to reload.
only if you're a spastic/turn it upside down. its one thing that makes it fun.
paintballs are heavy and big which means they can hurt when they hit u and they have a tiny range. they're also stupidly inaccurate.
they WILL hurt you. That makes it fun so that you dont want to get hit. The range can be changed. Depending on the gas specification. Inaccuracy is a challange you have to get around.
paintball guns use gas. gas runs out quick and costs a lot to reload.
no it doesnt. 1 canister will last you like 5-10 rounds which is the most you play in a days game
paintball games are unrealistic and stupid
they look like they look. they're not supposed to be like real guns.

I've added the dates to the Calendar. I would like to go, but it is dependant on me getting a job in the meantime to pay for it :)

Flufball
Sunday, 16th January 2005, 15:41
And if you did get said job, getting time of work for it :p

Pegasus
Monday, 17th January 2005, 00:51
Depends Fluf, i think the only people from EvE (BmF) that will go will be Boss, so it depends where hes gonna sit, tbh id like to sit with RL.


Btw: it costs about 60 to go and you need to take your own PC and Moniter (altho there is a rental service for Moniters)

Early arrival (Thursday Night) is and extra 10 if you want it.
