Yea, one thing that a lot of chairsofters and new guys don't understand is what they see --HERE-- on the forums is --NOT-- how it is on the field. I come across as an arrogant prick with an ego the size of South Africa, however I like to think I'm a little bit different in person.

However only team-mates and those I've played with can truly answer that one. But yes I still must agree, the attitudes of airsofters is quite often much different than those attitudes of paintballers.

Plus, the realism of airsoft appeals to me so much more than paintball.
those are more likely the so called speedball fairies most of the milsim guys that i had the pleasure to play with are pretty much like the old airsofters, they just play the game and chit chat after over ice cold beers. These so called speedball fairies are much like the arrogant noobs we encounter in some of our games to which i have no problem saying to them after an embarrasing knife kill "How do you like them apples biatch??"

I've played both sports. Personally I like airsoft not jsut ebcause of the look of the gun's but because of the feel. I like the feeling of having the stock on my shoulder when aiming which is hard to find with rental markers from paintball fields. I enjoy the odd paintball game with my friends out at the woodball field here in Halifax but personally my choice is with airsoft. Everyone can have their own feeling to either or but this argument is a never ending one. So I agree with Wildcard go out and do your own thing in the end it's your choice.

Wildcard, there is no woodsball anywhere near me. It doesn't pay the bills to have guys dump 100 rounds in an hour. They need to dump a pod every 2 minutes to make paintball profitable enough to even consider it a business.

That's why you see 99.999% speedball. If you play woodsball, you are a small minority my friend.

I guess we are a little spoiled here in Ontario, but this argument of which is better? is still childish and a waste of time and i STILL rather be shooting than argue which is better, Majority of the guys I play with (Paintball) do call these speedball woosies "babies" and yes we do tend to butt heads with them when we play much like some of the noobs i 've seen attending the games, unfortunately there are always bad apples in BOTH games and quite often these are the real guys that always start the shitstorm.

But when you have to share a paintball field with paintballers, this comes up everytime. And it's usually much worse in person than online. I've seen guys almost come to blows over it, or you get the drunk 40-something running his mouth off over us and our little toy guns.

I'd rather be shooting too, but it's not always an option.
