I entered the sport completely new, aswell as everyone else. Since starting to enjoy and embrace the sport, I have developed strong bonds with people I would have never met outside of the sport. There was a point in my life were I was hammered with so many emotional nails that I broke down. I wasnt in a good mental state and going to the games distracted me, repairing other peoples toy blasters provided me with a mental distraction, and allowed me to keep continuing. Even since then, I have only furthered the friend group I have through this beautiful sport. This sport has provided so many people with an amazing get away that other sports dont offer. Its a social milestone for some, and has grown into a large community containing in the thousands of members. I own a lot to this amazing sport, and the friendships ive formed will always remain.
