If you are new to the game then this "TAG TIP" will be of great help keeping you on the field and helping you put your opponents on the sideline. Simply put. "Don't Turn Your Back". Anyone who has played this game has been "Tagged Out" when a well placed arrow finds the space between one's shoulder blades. Just as easily this is one of the best ways to send an opponent to the sideline. Wait for the enemy to turn and send a foam tipped arrow their way knowing that the player being shot at has no idea what is coming at them to successfully avoid it.. Why? Because they can't see it coming that's why!
Yes, occasionally a player must "haul ass" to avoid a shower of arrows but keeping an eye on the field and your opponents as you back pedal away from the front lines allows you to see any attempts to pick you off coming your way. Once this is learned even new players will wait for that "less experienced" or "unaware" player to turn and lose sight of the field. Twang, thud. You are out!
