Fun on the run is ok, the only cool thing there has been the night games and even those aren't so great. The refs wipe for players and the fields team wipes like crazy also. You get games that are like 15 on 15 and that field is definitely not set up for that kind of play. Another thing is their shop not too long ago tried to sell me an angel threaded feed neck for my impulse and instead of telling me about it they try to glue it on and then when it falls off they try to tell me that I broke it and that it was my fault. I hate this field mainly for that reason and C.J. you can say whatever you want but i kno that there is a field team you cant say there isn't.
Wow i love how everyone comes on line and complains about the cheating at nightball but they dont say anything to me in person. If you took more than 2 seconds to talk to me you would know i dont allow any type of cheating on the fields and that goes for these Field teams you speak of. Torn and Addicted (which is no longer a team) dont have field sponsorships worked out their sponsorships are through the store which is a different type of thing. Its a points sponsorship, if you dont know what that means then ask around.
As for the 15 on 15 yes we do run games like that, but please remember nightball is only 4 1/2 hours long. If we have 70 people there (which is the average that we ran last year) and i make 8 groups to play how many games do you think you will get in ?? Then you will complain that you paid to much money and didnt get enough games in. You people act like we are the only field to do that, umm i can name 3 other fields that do it also. Problem is we tend to run more people for night ball than most other fields around us so there for we cant make our numbers 7 on 7.
Me and my team will be reffing nightball this year along with two of the reffs from last year, if you for one second think someone is cheating you let me know i dont care who they are i dont allow it. I can also insure you that no reff on the field will ever wipe a hit from a player unless the player shot the other person first and that player played on.
aright next time i go to night games i will tell you of wiping i see i mean i dont mean to be a pain in the a** or complain but after telling a ref 10 times to go check a player and when he finally does it with an additude it makes it seem like hes too good to go and do his job and then the next time i almost get in a fight with one of the store employees because i bonus balled him because he kept playing after an obvious hit on the arm that doesnt make me feel very welcome hopefully you can understand where im coming from im not saying all of fun on the run is bad and theres allways gonna be the downside that as a customer i wont like but i just felt like i needed to say this
Well a lot of times players call for checks on players when a reff can see that he isnt hit. Sometimes we dont have to move from our post to see that they is no hit on the player. As a player i know you have heard and seen many times when you swear you hit your buddy only to check him later on and see it bounced. I promise you the reffs that reffed last year and the ones that reff this year have no love for cheating no matter who might be doing it.
I dont recall there almost being a fight last year except for with two gentalmen and which i know you were neither of them. Unless a reff calls you or warns you about over shooting another player your not in the wrong in my book. I have been shot a lot of times while doing a run through and they kept shooting till i came to a stop, i didnt like it but its part of paintball.
Like i said before this year we will be opening nightball the 3rd weekend in June and if there is any problems you have no matter the size please let me know. If your having the problem someone else might be also. So dont think of it as being a pain in the rear your only helping to improve the field so more people can enjoy it.
