"Wow, they just mowed us down. There was nothing we could do. It was a slaughter." I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard that statement or something similar coming from paint covered players in the neutral zone after a game. The truth of the matter is that yes they did mow you down but there is always something you can do. If you know the types of engagements that may occur on the paintball field while you are moving toward the opponent's base you will be able to overcome and dominate any situation.

"They had paint raining down on us from every direction. There was no way we could get anywhere near the flag."
Does that sound familiar? It is fun to run around in the woods shooting paint but capturing the flag is the name of the game. I constantly hear people complain about how hard it is to attack the other team's base and capture the flag. Assaulting the flag might very well be the easiest part of a woodsball game, if it's done right. Unfortunately too many players and teams go about the assaulting the flag all wrong.
