Review: This field was alright, but i still had a good time. Due to the San Diego Fires some of the fields were toasted but most of them were still open. They had a couple good fields that had some good bunkers to hide in, but a lot of the fields like the spools and the hyperball field were WAY too small. Plus the spools were a half spools course. one side of the field had a bunch of spools on one side, and you had awesome cover. but on the other side the only cover was some like roadside cement blocks or something with trashcans and a couple spools that were sitting on the side. (so it looked like a a big T). almost no cover at all. i had to lie on my stomach at the cement blocks and im only 5'8". They have a couple good fields but the spools and hyperball fields were the ones that kinda annoyed me. the rest are alright.

the people that work there are pretty nice, they aren't as stuck up as the people at velocity are. you know, the people that always think they are better than you, which may be true but no need to be a jerk about it. one thing i noticed about the refs is that they never explained the rules/or all of them to my group. i was with a group of friends that were newbs so we were playing novice and this guy came up and tried to bunker me. which he sucked at cuz he didnt even hit me. but since i returned fire at him the ref called both of us out. which i understand and im not mad about but he neglected to tell us the fact that u cant fire back at someone who is trying to bunker. im sorry but i just cant do that. its a natural reaction to return fire at someone who is firing at you. plus he was like 3 feet away.

my biggest concern about this field is that there is almost no concern for safety here. at some of the fields you aren't required to have your mask on if you outside the net, but then at others you were. so i was confused about that. but the biggest problem was people running aorund with no barrel plugs outside of the field and in the staging areas. these people even had their guns at their hip and their fingers on the trigger. no supervision=someones eye getting taken out.

one thing that sucks is the fact that gun hits dont count and its player hits only. it makes new players skills go down. they get used to not getting out on it. for me i got shot prolly like 3 or 4 times in the day in the hopper and once in the barrel and i didnt have to get out. which brings me back to my other point of them not telling rules. becuz i actually called myself out on a hopper hit in the first game i played. i also got about 5-6 gun hits during the day which again didnt count.

the prices were cheap, but i heard it waas only like that cuz its summer, and there were free refills all day which is good for co2 people. all in all i had a good time despite a couple mix ups and dumb wipers and people bunkering when they arent supposed to.
but i probably won't be going back too soon because of the lack of concern for safety and the field only paint requirement. although they do have evil, marbs, and big ball on sale. but u still have to spend 18 bucks on 500 rounds of field paint as another requirement. i liked this field because it wasnt as crowded as velocity and doesnt have so many advanced players preying on novice players. (like me! haha).
