Well Niagara Tactical was the first field I ever played at. My friends and I decided to take up Paintballing after we discussed it over some coffee quite a while ago. So in less then a week, 6 markers were purchased (4 from there) and we got on our way.
I have to say, playing for the first time was quite fun, it was exciting. But after a few times of being there and witnessing "pros" not call out VERY often, or being in the dark and -wasting- half a hopper on a guy who is under a bus and asking him to get out and there being absolutely no refs, or just 1 ...you know to cover the entire field...anyway it gets on your nervs, I guess that is why they move over to speedball. So that you can play in a great dimly lit field and have everyone play fairly. Im not sure </sarcasm>
My greatest dissapointment came when my own brother who was on MY team was shot at by a teamate because a ref told him he was on the opposite team and to shoot him. THE HELL ARE THE REFS DOING TELLING HIS FRIENDS TO SHOOT ANYONE???!? The refs arent there to play or have fun at all, they are there to ref. I had the flag, dropped it at the other end, but the super duper refs had no idea what was going on and the game kept playing....(isnt it supposed to end, game over, we win?) Im there waiting at the barrel and you know..calling we win..stop shooting? Anyway, OK so appearantly the game still goes on.
So a few weeks later, my marker fails on me, me being relatively new to the sport, I can't easily take apart my marker and tell what is wrong, I knew it was something simple but had to have someone experienced look at it. So i ask the staff nicely but once they asked me where I bought it and responded (not there). They simply shot it a few times and said..""well it just may need oil" you know even though the darn thing is shooting ice everywhere and i've oiled it and done the basics to my knowledge a million times..o did i mention we've already spent about 2 thousand on getting our equipment there..in a week.. but its ok. Hey no one HAS to fix my gun, i just thought id get better service.
I havent played the indoor field, but ive seen it, and it looks really really dirty and unplayable, hopefully everyone has fun, but i dont see myself paying to play there anymore.
