Ok, I have played ball here a few times and (for the most part) have had a good experience:
*the fields are great
* the indoor area is nice
*the prices are fair (70 bucks/case, 10 bucks/nitro all day, free CO2).
Although there are many good points about Liberty, there def. are some areas it needs to work on...
The last time I played at liberty was 7/2/06. I played as a walk on as did everyone else that day (there weren't many people... probably because it was 95 degrees). Got there at around 930 am and gased up, bought paint and got ready to go. I walked over to rinse my googles and upon my return to my table, my paint was gone. Im not blaming the field for this in any way shape or form, it was just a bummer and a bad way to start the day. I got another case, filled up, and locked the rest in my car. \
I brought my own gun, as did many of the players that day and none of use were tested( in the morning) to see how hard the guns were shooting. I checked myself and I was shooting at 292, 295,296,295....so I was good (they said you have to be under 300 fps)....we played till lunch. At lunch they said they were chrono checking (probably because some people complained)..but instead of having a ref in the testing area, they just told us all to check our own guns. When i got to the chrono there were a group of kids probably around 15-16) with their own tippman guns..I watched the first kid shoot 385, 390, 402!! The machine was beeping like crazy but nobody cared...I told the kid that his gun was shooting way to hard and he just looked at me and walked away ...the other kids in the group all were shooting well over 300, and after watching one of these punks shoot 350, and decide to turn the fps up on his gun I decided to tell the ref, who did nothing. Im not the type to snitch about people's guns shooting too hard, but this was outrageous. This was/is the major problem I have with this place. Chronoing seems to be optional.
The refs need work as well. I know its tough to ref a paintball game...ive done it before...but a little effort never hurt anyone. As I mentioned above, there werent that many people, the teams were probably around 12-15 people each and we didnt play many woods games...mostly on scenario type fields...but there was a lot of cheating going on. I myself watched as at least 2 balls I shot broke on some jerks mask, only to have this clown duck back behind a bunker and pop back up...HE WIPED A MASK SHOT AND NOBODY DID ANYTHING! I screamed at the ref who was over against the netting of the field, and didnt move before saying this guy was still in. I was pissed. There were a few people who worked at the field who were playing with us...which kind of explains things. this type of thing went on all day.
So thats it really, dont want to go into too many details here, but those were my major concerns with the place. I rate this place a 7-8. its fun, but the chrono thin needs to be worked out.
Fully agree with Bronx’s opinion. Great fields with so much potential, I play there every now and then too. I would go and bring more friends to introduce them to the game more offend, but most of the staff couldn’t give a rats ass, if the paying customers are having a good time, playing safe, wiping… If management, considered tighten up the level of honor of play, they would get more repeat customers, as apposed to letting the quality of the walk on games sink to that of a pre-teen free for all.
I have said it in many comments before, please help us. i have a ref in the chrono are and are working on a system to id guns that have been chroned. we do invitr all our player to chck thier own guns but we do the final check. As for the refs, i think you will find a pleasent change. if you see a cheater please let us know. see you soon i hope.
