Closing Notes



Written by DEO

First off, this is not a strategy or tactics article. This is just something I wrote to express my mind, and if you’ve ever read one of my longer notes, you know it takes me a long time to say what I want to say. Now you’re probably all thinking, why is DEO talking about old school? He’s not really old. And you’re absolutely right. I never played when everyone used old school tactics, but I do know a lot about them. When I first started, like I said, not EVERYONE was old school, and there are even fewer today. But there was still a few old school players when I started and I watched them. Boo Yaow is old school, he played a lot when I was a newbie. He was real

good, too. Like he said in his ‘What’s Changed?’ article, people that nade’d would shoot maybe 3 nades at you and if they all missed they would try something different. Now, if someone shoots some nades at you and they miss, they think “Yeah, he can dodge one nade, let’s see how he does with 15 coming at him!” And they nuke you. Seems the only way to get ahead nowadays is to nade, rocket, spread NB or FNB. And when the newbies see the ‘wallet winners’ (That’s my term for the people that seem good because they have the money to “buy splats”) spraying their FNB they think, wow I wanna have as many splats as him one day, all I need to do is get enough cash to spray the field down in paint. Now, just because I mostly use a can, I’m not saying I’m old school. I admit I’m far from it. What I am saying, is I wish I was Old School. I want to be Old School. And the only way to be old school is to

use skill, and tactics. Idling in one place in your hider suit waiting for a

guy to walk by is not using skill and tactics, and I admit I’ve done this too before. But the fun leaves the game, there’s no thrill in not being seen. Some of the best times I’ve had is having fire fights with old school players. Lil Oly used a hider suit, but he didn’t just sit there in it, I remember running around and all of a sudden a nade would land right beside me, then Oly would jump out and cyan me, luckily I was bouncy. He usually ended up hitting me with another nade though. That was old school, and those days were the best I ever had on PBN. So, I challenge all you wallet winners to try single shot FNB or NB, I can’t promise more splats, but I’m almost certain you’ll have more fun.

Invaders Secrets

Written by AlphaAce

Hi all its me AlphaAce. Well im sitting here in Longbeach California on my grandma’s webTV. Bah no pbn on this thing. Its raining and I have nothing better to do so i am going to give you all of my Vaders secrets. Ok first buy a pair of X-ray glasses at bottom store and wear them. Now go to top left store and buy a high velocity semi-auto gun/rifle. Now go to top right store and purchase a spread fire kit and a hugh expansion. Assemble both these kits to your hv gun/rifle. Now go to middle store and buy a backpack of some sort. Put your rifle into you backpack. Go back to top right store and buy a water camo kit. Assemble this kit to you backpack.

Next go to bottom store buy some leggings or boots. Go back up to top right store and buy turbo & swim kits and assemble it to your leggings. (If you can afford jet assemble it to a multi-jacket with your water camo kit) Once you have your leggings with the kits on them wear them. When the vaders game begins don’t run anywhere yet. Take your time look around at where there is a thin lake and there isn’t very many mountains/bushes/hills around to block your paint. When you get this area get in some water and type the command crouch. After playing for vaders for a long time you get to know at what part of  the song the bots come out. A few seconds before the bots come out start  spraying at the wall. Shoot far away down the map to near you. This way all the paint will hit wall area at same time. Hopefully the second the bots  are released. You will receive many splats instantly. Now just keep firing till all the bots are cleared away from you. If your still alive and you  can’t see any bots type stand. This will increase your eye site. Now you  should see a few more bots. Sniper them off. Keep doing this until all bots are dead. You should be able to win the game. Only 1 rule and that is stay in the water! Also check your ammo, nothing like have you and 3 bots left and only 8 paintballs in your weapon. So use your ammo sparingly if you are low on ammo.

‘Equipment, More’

Written By FlameStag

“I hate Canners,” go and say her, splatting bots, and splatting players,

With my can I splat them all, I splat them all and splat them more,
I fire my can, nearly splatting, almost hit them while I’m canning,
Then I see someone Nading, Nading them and Nading more,
“Takes no skill,” I shouted, “For Nading I shall ignore,
You Naded, and nothing more.”

Ah, way back in November, I started playing if I remember,
Each splat upon another, quickly mounting up a storm,
Another splat I really wanted, a victim is what I hunted,
Over a mountain for some splats, splats I must have more,
For I am but a newbie, I must have and can’t ignore,
Equipment, I need some more.

Who is this? She is undine, QtPie a ninety-nine?
An admin is what I wished, but my dream is unfinished,
Equipment I need to hold, more weight is what I lore,
I need more space, more, more, more and more,
Padding I need some more, keep on bouncing more and more,
Equipment, I need some more.

A level up I must send, ten bucks I need to spend,
To RM I need to mail, my level up mail by snail,
For I have no Card of Credit, Therefor cash is my debit,
To the mailbox I journey for, I send my check, twas no chore,
Can’t be long, not much more, soon to be level twelve, for,
Equipment, I need some more.

It came, It came, a level up in my name,
I head to the Depot, some padding in my arsenal,
I add a scarf, a pack, some boots, and some more
Some boots of down, no more, I found the inner core,
Padding is what I plenty, no more am I sore,
Equipment, I need no more.
