Alleria micro isn't the most important thing really. If you lose too many footmen you're going to get run over by a good rush. If you take all their Allerias quickly or all of their Allerias while maintaining nearly 1 to 1 then yes. Alleria micro taking footmen and Allerias is key instead over just going for Allerias. There are more complex PBalls like 45 Man and 80 Man, they have mage and more varied units.

Translation:  He's butthurt.  I guess he's not to good and it bugs him when people rub it in.  That sort of thing usually motivates people to get better.  But then again it has the opposite effect on some others too.

Thomas you are welcome to the cash tournament on October 3rd, or any tournament I host. PBall is a lot more straight forward than BNEs or GOW, it's easier to pick up, but can be just as hard to master. To get decent at it shouldn't be as hard as GOW though, I'd be willing to help you, give you some tips of whatever. Anyone is welcome to my tournaments, and most of the PBall community is pretty nice we're willing to help. I mean you might get some shit, but it's all in good fun no one means it. Anyway you are welcome to the tournaments, and I'm willing to help you get good at PBall.

Pball,  the Dota (bane) of my existence (haha I crack me up).  If you like Pball, you are playing the wrong game.  I'll still come whoop you at it though if I am around :)  Why is it called "Pball" though?  I dont see any resemblance to paintball at all.  It's more like Dball if you ask me.  DodgeBall lmao.  Dota should have been called the same thing,  Dball,  and all of it's successors should all be called Dball hahaha.

With that argument I could name any game in existence, let's take Diablo 3 and say if you like Diablo 3 you are playing the wrong game. I've played PBall since 2002 when it came out, before that I played GOW, BGH, whatever was up. I have beaten the in game campaigns long ago and building maps got boring to me. It's all a video game it's what you enjoy. I enjoy the fast paced action of PBall, dodging or back and forth as you've said in 2 posts are not what PBall is about. PBall is about spreading your men out, well balanced and timed attacks with fireballs, and avoiding fireballs, rushes. It's basically a big micro war, you are using your men to strategically kill theirs. As for why it's PBall, in real Paintball the rules are usually you get hit once you are out, in almost all PBalls the units are 1 HP so one hit dead, there are some PBalls with low hp units but they are the minority.

Ok, so in Dodgeball,  you can take multiple hits and still be in the game?  Heh a rename is in order ;)  I'm just pickin on you :P  Pball is fine, I just would like to see people play a real war2 game is all.  It's not really that much different from the NWTR type of maps, the only difference are the units used.  The principle is exactly the same although dumbed down quite and much simpler to understand.  I can see how PBall would be easy to pick up and understand.  Of all the customs "types"  I think PBall is probably the only one that has any relevance in a real war2 game where skill directly translates and likely the only custom I'd ever actually consider trying out.  UC in a real war2 game is paramount, especially in something like GoW (12/2), NWTR, FoC, PoS, etc.  They all require good UC at some point during the game.

Yeah there is actually a dodgeball PBall game, its called Mageball haha. It's 4 mages on each team separated by water in the middle, you play dodgeball like in real life but with mages lol. Yeah PBall is easy to try out for your first time, you just have to fight the other team with your units. As you get better though you realize you have to spread out, ways to attack that get their units while saving yours, and your experience goes up. To get decent at PBall won't take long but to play on the top level with the best PBallers can be harder. Yeah unit control can definitely transfer to a normal game magic use, quick reactions, to me PBall is just quick paced fun that easily passes time. Hope you can make the tournament Lance, I'd even be willing to play a couple games of 60 Man / PBall with you sometime before then and give you some tips if you want.

Just thought I'd add a little strategy tips for 60 Man PBall for people interested in playing it. I've been hosting it on and off and will continue to host 60 Man PBall for the next month until the tournament if anyone wants to practice. Here's my tips for 60 Man:

You always want to stand ground your men, if you don't when they attack you with Alleria's or footmen your men will run away and die. Some people use 4 Allerias  at once some 1, its probably better to start out with 1, a lot of pros use 4 Allerias or switch(talked about later). Take footmen, don't just go for Allerias or you'll get rushed. You want to defend your front and side, some people use more footmen some use not that many whatever works for you, but guard all around. You can try attacking their side to get some surprise Allerias. Some people switch 1 Allerias with 1 Alleria in and out to clear the Alleria and lure. If you run out of Allerias you should probably try to rush all your men at once, if you've taken enough footmen you will win if your rush is good enough.
