by Andrew McNaught [January 29, 2007]
Paintball is listed third in the world in popularity. Paintball is a highly stimulating game that is competitive and helps in team building.
Paintball is third in popularity, right behind inline skating and skateboarding according to the 2005 statistics of Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association International.
The love of "extreme sports" is a big reason why paintball is so important. Paintball is popular because it causes an adrenaline rush due to its highly competitive nature. Every player is trying to win the game, so it is important for you to learn any hints possible to give you the competitive edge.
Here are some hints for you to prevail in battle and play the game as best as possible:
1. Be positive
Being positive and confident is a huge advantage in the game of paintball. Paintball is a war game and every player's main goal is to win. Being a good sport is essential in this game, because there is a big chance that you will be a loser at one time or another.
If you lose the game, then be a good sport about it and try to find the areas where you need some work. There is always another game for you to win. Just try to keep this in mind.
2. Failure is not bad
View every failure as a way to learn more about paintball and the game. If you work on the areas that are causing you to fail, then you will be using the failure as a learning experience, rather than a bad experience.
3. Do not play alone
It is better to play on a team, rather than playing alone. On a team, you have more people to cover for you, so it will help you to continue in the game for a longer period of time.
4. Hiding out is not a good idea
If your game strategy is hiding out to keep from being hit by your opponents, you need to keep in mind that you can not hit your opponents if you are hiding out. You will also not learn strategies that can help you win, unless you come out and play the game rather than hiding.
5. Surrender, never!
It is best not surrender, even if the odds of you winning are higher. You want to sty in the game as long as possible so that you get more experience as a "hard target."
How you play paintball is even more important than winning. If you do your best and still lose, then consider it as a learning experience and play again!
