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.
