During the game you need to constantly wear a protective mask.
You can shoot from markers only on the playing field or in specially designated places. On the base territory it is necessary to use barrel gags.
The use of smoke bombs, explosive devices, min-traps (unless specified before the start of the game) and other unexpected obstacles is not allowed; cannot climb trees; Do not enter into direct physical contact with other players.
When you were marked, shout out loud “Killed” or “Retire” (“Retired”), raise the marker above your head and leave the field without stopping shouting “Killed”, “Retire”.
A player can pull another player out of the game with a colored ball. A player is considered to be knocked out if the ball bursts when hit by a player or a weapon. If the ball remains intact, the player stays on the field. A player leaves the game also when a player of his own team gets into it. You are considered marked if you get and have a color mark the size of a 5 ruble coin (2-3 cm) or more, or a piece of the "skin" of the ball remains on the player. Sprays falling on you from trees, walls, etc. are not considered. Paint splashing from a ball bursting nearby does not take the player out of the game; in controversial cases, the judge shall decide.
If it seemed to you that you were labeled and you shouted that you were eliminating the game, then you consider you to be eliminated even if you later find out that you were mistaken and you are not marked. Examine yourself carefully before shouting “Retire” or ask the referee or other players for help.
If someone shouted “Killed,” “Retire,” stop shooting him immediately! If you shoot him after his words, the judge may put you out of the game.
After you are out of the game you have no right to talk with other players. You can not go beyond the playing area. You can’t erase fresh tags - be honest if you are tagged. Those who play dishonestly spoil the game for the rest and will be removed from the game. Remember: this is just a game. We gathered here to enjoy her.
When playing for a flag, a win is awarded only if the team has an opponent’s flag and its own flag is required. If you were marked while you are carrying the flag, drop it to the ground - any other player will be able to raise it. If you took the flag of your team from the enemy, immediately return it to your command post (the flag's original location).
The game begins at the sign of the judge from its own base. All players who are outside the base at the start of the game exit the game immediately. The referee also ends the game.
The border of the site is indicated by tape, flags or natural barriers, such as a ditch or road or the walls of the room as in our club. If a player crosses the border, he leaves the game. Intentional shooting outside the boundaries of the site is prohibited.
During each paintball game, a referee (or several referees) must be present on the field. As in any decent sport with an international scope, judges will sooner or later face the same problem: how to understand the referee's decision in the game in an understandable and accessible way for all, when there is practically no time and ability to perceive speech? To indicate the judges ’decisions during the game, they use a set of gestures - signals, which we propose to familiarize with in this section.
The referee points to the affected or removed player (it is advisable to point a hand at the spot of paint made by a shot to avoid misunderstandings and delay the game process) and makes a sharp gesture towards the edge of the field with a squeezed palm with the thumb set aside. He then removes the bandage from the player and steps back, watching the player leave the field. If the removal of the player is connected with violation of the boundary of the field, the referee shall indicate to the offending player at the boundary of the field. Instead of a gesture with a palm, the judge crosses his arms extended forward and quickly spreads them apart parallel to the ground. This gesture is more common for British and American referees, but it is much better visible to players and spectators.
It is used in case of injuries or other unforeseen situations to stop the game within a radius of 3-5 meters from the player. The judge stands over the player who needs help and raises his arms above his head in the form of the letter T. After that, he must check the player’s condition and, if necessary, seek the help of other judges.
Neutral paintcheck (check)
Neutral paintcheckCheck mode, in cases of doubtful hits unnoticed by a player or judge. The judge stands above the player being tested, touching his head with one hand and abruptly throwing up his other hand. During the test, the hands should remain in this position! Stains of paint obtained as a result of random shots during the verification process, of course, are not counted and are erased. If the player is struck, the judge executes the “Defeated player” signal, if not, removes the hand from the head of the inspected. From now on, the testee is in the game. It should be noted that at tournaments they are now striving to reduce neutral paint checks to a minimum or to do without them at all, so as not to affect the course of the game. In this case, the judges conduct verification without stopping the game, inspecting the player under fire, and if necessary, even crawling around him.
The judge gives a series of short whistles and “flaps his wings” - raises his hands across the sides from the hips to touch over his head and lowers it back. The signal is given until the last player leaves the field.
The game continues
Sometimes situations arise when it is necessary to indicate that the game is still ongoing - for example, when the player who brought the flag to the base was defeated. In this case, the judge holds one hand on the belt, and the second rotates in a plane perpendicular to the ground - a kind of commissar gesture "follow me, attack, forward!"
The referee raises his palms up at shoulder level and negatively shakes his head, depicting misunderstanding or ignorance. It is used when players ask inappropriate questions such as "how much time is left" or "where is the flag."
