read some of the features....one of them is "cheat meter!"

basicly it gives u a meter where u can try to wipe off the hit without being caught..that is ****en bull****...paintball is about getting hit...taking the hit and callin urself out...NOT trying to cheat ur way to victory

lol this is really old news... it even shows it in the vids posted about 2 months ago.

Its REALLY easy to wipe the first hit too, but if you get hit again while your trying to wipe, your out automaticaly, same with goggle hits.

no matter how much people cheat in tourny ball, its pretty lame to integrate into a video game

Hmm, if you get lit up, duck into your bunker then wipe, will you get away with it?

the meter probably wouldnt go up very fast at all, maybe it only goes up if you hit sombody or do other stuff good, but yea its still very lame that they made a cheat meter in this game. it ruins some of the fun of it, although, it happens in real life too. We'll just have to live with it

hmm, thats kinda annoying, i dont like the fact that theyve put in a method of cheating into a paintball video game, it gives people the idea that you normally wipe, and that EVERYbody does it... It just doesnt look good

yoru not supposed to cheat in real life...but in this game it integrates it like your SUPPOSED to.

in real life its not a disadvantage if u dont wipe...if ur out ur out...but in this game u have a disadvantage if u dont wipe.

its puting a aspect of paintballin that no one likes under the spotlight....you dont tell the world players in paintball cheat.

I for one do not cheat. Especailly in tourny ball...if ur out ur out...thats the way i play.

You're heterosexualy challenged ...did you just hear about this game or what? way to live under a rock. If you would actually pay attention to things you would have seen video clips of the game and you don't wipe the hits, the cheat meter is about bouncing balls off you. And if you thing that you shouldn't cheat in tourney ball, especially, then your blind. All the pro teams you watch, cheat.

As much as I don't like the idea of promoting cheating, think about it from a gameplay point of view. How much fun would it be if you get hit off the break and end up watching the rest of the game... think of it like a health bar... except that instead of every time you get hit you lose health, every time you get hit you gain cheat points. Once you get a certain number of points you get called out. It's just implementing a way of letting the rounds last longer without the unrealistic addition of requiring 10 hits before someone is out.
