So, I’ve noticed that there’s been a decline in interest on the WoodsballGuide…probably due to my lack of interest of maintaining the content. So, in an effort to re-excite the woodsball crowd and revive the site, I have decided to start going through the whole site and re-structuring the old posts and start adding new posts. This also means that I’ll be updating the theme of the site, FINALLY! So if you notice some things that are a little off over the coming months, please excuse my clutter. I’m trying to make the site better so if you have any input please let me know. I need ideas for new articles and also ideas on how to improve the old ones.
I was looking through some of my old files and stuff from when I ran a paintball field and found my archive of some of the old articles from specialopspaintball when they used to have lots of cool info. I think out of all the woodsball information specops had, the team positions was what I found the most useful as a “Commander”. It seems kind of silly and a lot of people hate the idea of the team positions that specops created, but it really helped to give a clear goal and focus to my team and it really gave us a cohesion that we were lacking otherwise. Unfortunately specialopspaintball is no longer up and running, except for the forum, but at least I still have the memories! So, check out the “Team Stuff” section of the site and you’ll find all the old team stuff I found from back in the prime time of woodsball.
One of these days I’ll get around to posting up the “Officer’s Test” from the old specops brigade. I still have the questions and answers, so we’ll see how many of you would hold up to the standards of woodsball in 2007.
On a side note, I’m wondering if anyone would be interested in a revival of the specops brigade?…possibly in a newer form but with the same basic idea of a community of woodsballers that have a place to track their stats as an individual and a team, and also organize games with other teams and earn patches and “rank” as you add to your log.
As you may have noticed, things are changing. Paintball is changing. The industry is changing. Gun laws are changing. Woodsball hasnt changed much, but im sure a few things about it have. The Art of woodsball was a great start but the woodsball guide is a new improved version. I’ll be rewriting articles, adding new articles and updating all of the diagrams and addinf more pictures.
