Flagraiders - The best you can get.
Review: This field has quite a few major problems:

1) All staff, with the exception of Ray & Hal, need to be fired.

They are terrible. Rude, ignorant, (insert any derogatory comment here). I swear many of them know nothing about paintball as a sport. They know nothing about markers. Even if they did, I would never let them touch mine.

2) Paint prices

$10 for 90 balls? No thankz. Unless you are gonna let me use marbelizers, thats outrageous.

3) Field problems

- Its not complete
- No angles
- Buildings are useless since they only have one exit each.
- Too much empty space
- gravel is the worst idea ever
- 230 fps? Thats a little low. 250 is a pretty standard velocity. Most markers cant get below 250, yet if they do, they lob paint badly.

4) Mercy rules

10 feet is a little much and is very controversial. 3 feet is a little more realistic.

5) Experienced players beware

They completely isolate players who they see as intimidating. For example, I play on 5 man local team and we all have matching team jerseys/gear etc. They refused to let us play with the other people that were there "just because we were sponsored". 3 of us where using pump markers as well.

6) Criticism is not welcome with them

They got a "Comments/Suggestions" board set up in the staging area. A few teamates and myself added some suggestions on how to improve the place and they were removed and thrown out after we left to enter our next game.

OVERALL

Dissappointing field. Play at own risk.

First off it's a "NOVICE" field. If you don't no what novice means then go to http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=novice. They should tell you it means NEW. If that is to complex for your simple mind then search the word NEW it will use the word novice in it's definition. New people don't have Angles and new people like to have open spaces so they can see whats happening. Also no point blank because there NOVICE. Would you want to play a game for the first time and come home with bloody welts after a retarded 5 man local team bunkers you. If you don't like it then don't go back because no one wants your business.

First off...there ARE angles...go into the pub, can get mad angles in there.


2nd...Lets see you move to a new feild, add new awesome stuff every monday and try to keep prices fair, they lowered the amount of pb's so they can add great stuff to the feild...

Why would your local 5man team go to a (as elponcho says it) NOVICE feild and expect equal skill on the feild....bad planning if you ask me. You probably didn't even go on a friday anyway....ElPoncho couldn't have stressed it anymore...its a novice feild my friend.
