there are so many variables involved
that it'd be silly to say what percentage is what
of course better equipment in general will help your game(or if you're a pessimist, it'll be less likely to make you worse )
rof is only a tiny chunk of everything it is to be able to play this game well.
as is marker profile...sure it helps but it won't win you a game by itself
you have to also factor in the marker's accuracy(which includes valving, consistency..etc), reliability and ability to not break balls. The quality of the paint, which also affects accuracy and ball breaks(both inside your gun and on the player you're trying to eliminate)
and most importantly, you have to factor in the players skills. A short list of player skills include:
running(which in itself includes both speed and quickness), snapshooting, shot accuracy(in general), strategy, decision making...by far an incomplete list but you get the idea
the point is
don't worry about analyzing it so much
just get out there and play
too many kids see this emphasis on equipment
they see a thread like this where people are saying it's 50% skill 50% equipment
"mommy bought me an angel, im half way there already"
i will say there are certain pre-requisites for equipment
but i don't count rof as being that high on the list
id like to see more posts about
