(parenthetical phrases shall be my opinion of what I am thinking at the time)
Today, I went up and bunkered a player from up top. shot him once within 2 feet. I didn't want to shoot him more than once because....well for safety reasons and I was right on top of his head and didn't want to give that guy a headache if i let it rip.
The player claims that the ball bounced off of him and he didn't want to come out because of it. I informed the ref you have to get him out because well I bunkered him within two feet. Its only fair that he would surrender in that situation. After I shot him i hid on the poison side of the bunker. (refs have made it known that you should not shoot a player up close more than once or twice or shoot a player within 10 feet of you That's one of the rules they preach).
The ref didn't want to listen and said..."well if the ball bounced, he should still be in". I got ticked off because this ref obviously has no idea how to control the game or how to hand out the rules. Let's name this ref BOBBY.
I then popped out of the poison bunker and let 20-30 balls rip on the gun right on top of his head. The situation should not have come to that. I, of course, was shot out because I was wide open ripping on the guy.
After the game, BOBBY approached me and spoke with me. If the ball does not break then the player should not be out.
I told BOBBY, "isn't one of the rules that you give is that if you are within 10 feet of the player, shoot him in the butt, the leg, or body? I was right on top of him and could have ripped his head with red bumps".
The ref replied "well surrender is an option".
I responded "last week, the ref in the orange t-shirt told me that I shouldn't be ripping on players that close". The ref in the orange actually on that day, held my barrel so that I would cease shooting.
Bobby replied, "isn't he the manager, I worked here for 3 years as a ref, I know the rules. If the balls don't break, you are not eliminated" (Bobby is completely incompetent. He worked here for 3 years, can't even get promoted to manager and still making minimum wage, and still doesn't know how to control a game).
I told Bobby, "ok you said it. Next time I'll just keep shooting until i see a break. (which doesn't make sense for the safety of the park, since we all know the balls are crap).
(I believe this field needs some major changes. If you are going to stick by one rule go for it. Don't try to change a rule because you are incompetent to make a decision).
Dispute: I have to say that I agree with ref "Bobby." The ball didn't break and you didn't yell surrender, therefore, your player is not out. Yes, safety dictates that you should not unload your hopper on another person from 2 feet away, but don't you have any common sense? You make it sound like there is no middle ground between bouncing a single shot on a guy and lighting him up with 20-30 hits.
And secondly, did you actually say that a ref once had to grab your gun to get you to stop shooting somebody? Do you even realize how bad that sounds? You've totally succeeded portraying yourself as, both, hot-headed and dangerous. Guys like you (arguing with refs, unneccesarily lighting people up, acting way too gung-ho) only serve to ruin the experience for the rest of us.
Ah hahahaha!! Bracer028!!!! I knew your screen name looked familiar! I read one of your reviews for Warped Paintball Park a while ago. All you do is go around to different fields pissing off the refs and acting like a complete fool. Then afterwards, you go home and cry. But once you finish wiping your tears with a maxi pad, you open up yer can-O'-wup-ass and write scathing and hilarious reviews about how everyone there hated you.
I'm sorry. I wouldn't normally flame you so hard if you weren't such a whiny little girl. Hope I didn't hurt your feelings too badly ya big puss.
