masterblasters (defunct) way better, family paintball/rentals in shelton also better.
I live in seattle and was headed down to a tourney in shelton.... well it was rained out so we decided to look for other options, at somepoint I had heard that there was a course a little further south so we decided to check it out.
While driving in the course seemed pretty decent, bunkers spools, a trench system etc. Even tho the weather sucked there was still about 15-20 ppl and the field fee was on par with other courses (like $15 if you have your own gun/$20 w/out).
Thats about were the fun ended tho, serious lack of chronoing on both sides of the scale. I saw a kid shooting at 195 and some other guy with a cocker over 370, thats just not right. on top of that the players there didnt seem to care if you shot them or not.
One guy tried to bunker one of my teammates so we opened up on him (real close range too) this guy took 2-3 shots from my friend, shot him then came over to where I was, I opened up (I have an A-5 RT and 4500PE tank w/flatline etc.) on the guy from about 10' away and he kept coming and shot me in the mask. I was like WTF, He was seriously green I counted 7 shots in his chest, 3 in his right lag and a couple on his mask/visor and that was just from my gun, he had pink on him from my bro too. when I asked him WTF he was doing he was like "you didnt shoot me" I was getting pretty pissed at this point and I said "look at your chest man, all that green is from my gun". He said he was sorry and that I could wipe and stay in the game, but at that point I didn't want to seem like a punk so I stepped out for the round.
Wait it gets better...
In the first game we played the teams were actually pretty even, with a few noobs and seasoned players each, well one guy on the other side was quick enough to get in behind us and pin one of our players down. I flanked in on him and took him out only to be lit up by my teammate (the guy who later chrono'ed in at 370) from less then 15 feet away. Now I can understand how this can happen in some cases, but he watched me move in at take out the other player and then move back into position.
dont be afraid to overshoot if you come here, it wont matter much anyhow, since the ppl keep shooting at you after you've hit em 3-5 times.
Yeah the ref pointed them out, but I guess me and my bro were the only ones that listened. they have a small skinney brush course on the left side of the driveway, well we dug in to cover the road which was the furthest thing on the right hand side that was still in bounds. Anyhow we were pushing up on the other side when we were lit up from the other other course! these two guys were hiding in the trench system on the other course... just plain weak.
all in all its really to bad, I drove almost 2 hours to get there from seattle only to have one of the worst times ever. If you live in the area I would suggest you hit up www.familypaintballandrentals.com its in shelton, the owner rocks, prices are fair and the players actually make the game enjoyable. Otherwise just get some air/co2 and shoot yourself from pointblank since thats whats in store for you at this place.
I'll give it a two since the guy running the joint was nice.
