Did you check out VFTD's Facebook page for rule #14? Well, it's your lucky day, slacker, as I intend to list all the available rules of the game. Not because I'm just that kind of decent guy. (You should really know better by now.) I want your ideas for rules of the game--which I will then shamelessly steal, claim for my own (if they are any good) and add to the list. Alternatively, (when you have no original ideas--like usual) it will be confirmed and unassailable that my rules are the best--and you got jack. Winner!
So put your rules ideas up in comments--or don't. And if you're not quite sure what might make for a rule, read the list.
Baca's Rule #3: Players cheat. Enough with the tantrums, stomping your feet and balling up your fists when you're whining to the refs about the other guy cheating you. Get over it. You cheat too. I know you cheat and you know you cheat so shut up. What you really want is refs who are only good enough to catch the other guy. If there's anything worse than a cheater it's a hypocritical whiny little bitch.
Baca's Rule #6: The shiny perfection of your gat is in inverse proportion to your ability to use it.
Baca's Rule #7: If you routinely dish out bonusballs quit squealing like a schoolgirl when you are on the receiving end. It's unmanly and pathetic. (Unless you happen to be a schoolgirl in which case it's okay. And could you post it on You Tube? Thanks.)
Baca's Rule #8: Communication is vision.
Baca's Rule #9: ROF is not the determinative factor in paint consumption.
Baca's Rule #10: effective shooting isn't the ability to put 15 balls on target, it's the ability to put the first ball on target.
Baca's Rule #14: most aftermarket parts are purely cosmetic. Those that aren't are still, more often than not, unnecessary. (Call me all the names you like but, please, no sticks and stones. I have sensitive skin and a soft head.)
Baca's Rule #17: 'Speedball' refers to any non-woods variant of paintball in which the participants imagine they are playing competitive paintball.
Baca's Rule #19: The ability to spastically twitch the index finger of either hand like an epileptic having a seizure is NOT a skill.
Baca's Rule #23: There are two kinds of cheaters in paintball, honest and dishonest. The majority of "honest" cheaters play out in the open where everyone can see and the bulk of the "dishonest" cheaters skulk around in the woods. There is a certain irony then in the fact it is the "honest" cheaters who are most often condemned. There is, however, a special corner of hell for the "dishonest" cheaters where Nine Inch Nails is the house band and they will be performing show tunes for eternity.
