Here is the way to your new hero mentality. Just read it up? man. It is your
new paintball mentality. Get ready for it! Paqintball is great!
We've all had the experience.... "Hey you guys cover me while I run up!"
The reply? "Yeah, ok man!"
Three steps outside your bunker, and you've been hit 6 times already.
What do you do? Well, you could always yell your head off like, "You call
THAT cover?!?" but that generally irritates your teammates and can result
in "accidental" shots to your rear in future games. Does this mean
just don't worry about teammates
anymore? No! It means the guys behind you aren't perfect. Maybe they missed,
maybe they had a marker jam, maybe they ran out of paint or air-- the possible
things that can go wrong are endless.
I have heard the saying, "People make mistakes, so gimme this gun over
teammates" or some stupid remark like that. Baloney! No matter how hot
shot, or accurate, or fast you are, you aren't going to win ANY paintball
games (whether tournament or otherwise) without your teammates. (OK OK I
realize there are one-on-one tournaments, but you get the picture...for the
most part, you need teammates. No matter how you slice it, you're stuck with em!).
And half the time, the "mistake" that costs you the game or gets you
shot is a marker jam!

were mentally prepared to take on the whole other team single-handed, and now,
look at all the other guys helping
