There's a lot more to it than just throwing paint, though I can see how it looks that way from the outside. I really love the intensity of serious tournament ball, nothing else comes close. The higher ROF just means that you have to work harder and be smarter. There's less room for error on the field. I still enjoy playing in the woods every now and then, it's just not the same rush and challenge I've grown used to. It really is two totally different games. I would have to agree that the woods is WAY more friendly, especially to someone new to the game like you said. Either way there is defnitely something addictive about it.
