I can see paintballers getting hit by airsoft BBs (even if leaving a welt or bleeder somewhere), looking and claiming "I'm still in, the ball didn't break!" and carrying on. It really won't be a fun game for anyone, likely would end up looking like an NHL bench clearing brawl.

This sounds like bringing a taser to a stapler fight, pointless.

Now if you had a series of back to back matches maybe it would be OK. Setup the airsoft one as a milsim without the immediate engagement typical of paintball and then it would be interesting.

Soccer, you use your feet to kick the ball. Baseball, you must use a bat to hit the ball. Soccer has a different play style than baseball.

Airsoft, you use a gun to shoot bbs. Paintball, you use a gun to shoot paintballs.
Airsoft and paintball both have the same play styles.

You can see how airsoft is a little more similar to paintball as to soccer is more similar to baseball.

You just kick the damn soccer ball and scratch yourself like in baseball.

no the playing styles are different. the items used are similar (kind of).

chess and checkers use the same board but have very different playing styles.

Oh I remember! Soccer baseball is actually called Kickball. Played it all the time.

I guess milsim is quite similar as the others have said.

So airsoft players would have to wear additional gear and clothing, because of the paint and paintball players would have to use the honor system.
Or we could just put a blender up your ass.

Did I mention I don't like this idea?

I am not alright with the idea of being covered in paint, regardless what I am wearing.

What if you put the p-ballers in speedos? Less shrugging of hits.

I must have upset you guys. My question was if there were any games that consisted of airsoft vs paintball. I did not say that it was a good idea and that we should start it; I just saw some positives if it had existed. So please stop braking my balls. lol

We used to play full contact baseball in high school gym class. And full contat soccer, indoors and out. Hell, everything was full contact, including tennis (initiated my interest in hitting people with ball shaped projectiles early on............ .177cal pellets aren't ball shaped, but we did that too.................. oh ya, was the late 1980s. Lol)
