I just got into paintball last year, I started out with a tippy like almost everyone else. I also live way the hell up here in Maine. Now we just got a sweet store called splatz last summer and it is probably the best thing ever to come to Bangor. That week I know atleast 30 kids who bought paintball guns and all of the stuff that goes with it. After like 3 or four times just playing woods ball they never played again. Personally I don't think all of the kids that play GHPP are going to ruin the sport. And to say that kids who think they are cool are going to start to play, i don't think thats a bad thing. Maybe the kids who skate and the kids who play football and stuff will start to hang out and be cool with one another. I know thats what happened with me. I have a butt load of "popular" friends and about the same amount of friends what skate and stuff. In all i think it will be good for the sport after a few months it will weed out the weak and maybe some quality players will appear who knows?

Hey man, its good and bad, double edged sword. More noobs to pwn, but then again... More noobs to get their eyes blown out if a ref isnt looking.

More strain on us refs too. Have you ever been a lone ref with a field packed with newbies? Its like corraling cats with a straw.

But then again, more is always more fun. Also, I'm planning to host a big "get to know paintball" event in my back woods as a woodsball game and as a fund raiser! Its gonna be sweet.

Supply and Demand.
Every one would want the thing you want, and it would take 3 months for you to get it.

Damn you people, get your drugs right.

Anyways, of course I want Pball to go mainstream though it is going to suck for a while because it is a "extreme" sport and the typical "extreme" sports enthuist is lame and always trying to hard to be something. But after a while it will be excepted and treated as a true sport and it will be all good. Especially for all the Balla's that want to make some CA$H.

Another thought though.
IF paintball does become a major sport, like skateboarding, wouldn't that make it capable of being in the X-Games?

i think it would be cool to have it go mainstream, i could see why people wouldnt, cuz of all the posers and stuff..but once you ball with those posers and get them in check, they will soon learn how the game is played, right now paintball doesnt get as much respect as it should, i think it would get 10 times more if it were mainstream, and why not share the love we all seem to have for it with everyone else?

Exactally. People think paintball is like all ****ty guns with hell of ****ty goggles that barely cover your eyes.... I don't know, people think it's really a lot different than it is.

They think it's all woods, too.

When was the last time you asked an older person if they knew what Paintball is, and they explained to you about Speedball?

They always relate it to the woods.... and some people usually ask
"Do you wear a mask? I wouldn't, especially if it wasn't required...."

You know? So having it become mainstream has it's ups and downs.....

UPS:
XGAMES, BABY!!! Hell of sick coverage, too...
A lot of people would know what Speedball is, and actually know more about how the game is played....
Price Drops!
More video games, like Greg Hasting's Tourny Paintball!

DOWNS....
Hell of gay posers, who think they're tough....
Things would be a lot harder to purchase...
Crime rates, through the roof...
It won't feel the same, because every one at the field is gonna be a newb....


You guys name the rest... Fill in the blanks that I'm sure I missed out on

More people=More fields and cheaper prices.
Prices now are pathetic for paint and field entry.

and to answer you question no i hope paintball doesnt go main stream because then it would just get stupid. I chose paintball for a sport for a reason, to NOT go mainstream like basketball, and baseball like everyone else.

I agree all the way, there are tons of posers at my school and even though I am new to the forum paintball is my life and only 2 ppl in myschool paintball I am one.
