    I'm new to paintball so please reply in English. I'm only 5'5 so pretty short for a bloke and was wondering where shorter players have the most amount of advantage during a game.

    Short... as far my experience of short players go, they're generally useful pretty much anywhere. (this is assuming we're talking Tourney, as I saw from one of your other posts that you've just joined Quest. Say hi to Gary and Frank for me)

    Generally, if you're put in the snake and have the ability to stay small, you'll do good on the field.

    How much experience do you have playing? (also, welcome to the forums!)

    The stereotypical position for a small player is the snake because you have the advantage of fitting behind the smaller bunkers easier! In reality, don't worry about your size dictating where you play. There is no point a small player going in the snake if they aren't aggressive enough or fast enough to get up the field quickly. If you can point your gun down range and hose paint like you're not paying for it you'll be just fine playing a role at the back of the field.

    Where have you liked playing so far?
