Speed ball owns. woods ball is meant for airsoft...just too much anti-realism with paintball, and now that ppl can shoot 35bps...all they do is mow, no tactics in it.

I like both, but i play woodsball more because the closest field is an hour away. And with woodsball i spend less money on paint. I buy 1000 paintballs and use about 600.

I play both, I am fortunate that my local field has both speedball and woodsball fields, when i began playing not too long ago I was attached to woodsball but as I progressed I was slowly drawn towards the fast paced action of speedball... right now im neutral and kind of hope it stays that way

I personally like speedball better. It makes your adrenaline pump a lot more and it seems more fun to me.

Use search, you'll find 8 million of these threads, and not one has anything good in them. Don't waste everyone's time with these petty threads. yesh!

Unfortunetly, by law, we are required to have AT LEAST 1 speedball vs woodsball thread a week.
Sorry, its not my rules.

Personally, I've played both, and will always prefer woodsball, but I like both. Woodsball IMO is much more complicated, and requires greater skill to master. But speedball is, with out a doubt, faster. If you perfer adrenalin over strategy, then speedball would probobly be better.

I biased though. I started well before speedball ever existed. All tournaments were in the woods, and speedball was considered a joke when it first came out. But, paint-sponsors realized they could make more money with speedball, and field operators realized they are cheaper to operate.

REGARDLESS of which is better, I think the fact that we have 2 very different styles of paintball to be one of our best attributes. My local field has both a great woodsball field and a good speedball course. I'll spend the day at the woodsball field, then finish with the speedball course (generally when I'm tired of walking).

The main problem with the woods/speed debate is many players have NOT played both, so they make ignorant assumptions like "woodsball is just for newbies", or "speedball is just for cheaters"... etc.. neither states are true.

Woodsball

Woodsball... Why? because where i live paintball is not considered a sport and no one plays. Also I love the woods, and personally I don't think playing on a field where there is just blow up bunkers is... I don't know how to put it, but i like when i can hide in the forest and wait for the suckers to come to me. Or i can flank them navy seals style. (riiiggghhhtt...)

Though before I die i would like to try this speedball everyone talks about. Then i can have a better idea on it. It looks fun dont get me wrong.
