One of these things is not like the other.....
Seriously, playing with out tooth protection is like playing hot potato with a greanade.
And players who "don't smile when they shoot, have to learn how to call hit with their mouth closed.
I got lucky and only had to shell out 350 for the dentist, wife said I could keep playing. (she was fine with the splatters knee injury too untill I let it slip that I jumped
and hadn't slipped
as initially reported) But yes a 2500 root canal would have put a serious damper on the uninsured players lifestyle.
So spend $10.00 save your teeth. They look cool and very CS. What needs to change is hosts need to EDUCATE noobs about the dangers of playing sans mask.
Is there a thread in the FAQ or NEWBIE GUIDE about this yet.
