Review: I've been here twice this year, and I quite enjoyed my time. It seems that some of the more negative reviews are people that have been playing for five years.. What are you, 15?? As an older paintball player (late 20s), I try to get into the advanced games here at SC Village, when I can. The pluses of going into the advanced group are you have a bunch of older players who are truly into the game as having fun and not complaining about someone elses gun or wiping or what have you. There's a lot more respect among the players in the advance group, and a lot more teamwork. Good safety coverage, good checks for 285fps field limit, and decent rules. I don't like the no marker hit rule, especially when some people blind fire. I've never had to wait more than a couple minutes to get chrono'd, but it would help if there were separate stations where you could fire your gun. I've never had a wait for an HPA fill. The players I played with were professional, and knew what to do and how to communicate among strangers.

Suffice to say, on Sunday when I went it started out around 75-80 degrees, and hit 90 when I left around 1pm. Not to bad, and some of the games were in the shade. Changed from last time is a kids group. There is kids (for kids 11-15), beginners, intermediate, and advanced. A lot of the time it seems the advanced group gets paired down into the intermediate. When we went Sunday we happened to get paired into the intermediate group, but the teams were advanced vs intermediate, eight of us vs about 20-30 of them. Our ref was excellent. He was an older guy, name tag was Rob, and he knew the fields and did a decent job of paint checking when I felt I might have been hit.

The fields are good, and this time around I played on different ones.. So far I've done Bosnia, North Vietnam, Kosovo, Iraq, Beruit, and Gettysburg. They all have different tactics, and it makes playing there enjoyable. A brief description of fields that I've done so far.

Bosnia: one with the Hind helicopters and airplane fuselage. Open to the hot sun. Some decent barricades and netting, and some small hills. Largish map. Was awesome shooting around the helis and planes.

North Vietnam: NV village on one site with a tower (non enterable) and forest on the other. Middle area had thick grass around 5 feet high (which made for excellent cover). Fun and tactically hard map. Medium sized.

Kosovo: Small, open to the sun map! Trench warfare at it's finest. Middle of the map has some structures with minimal paintball protection.

Iraq: Small, open to sun map, with varied hilly terrain. A couple bunkers, but fairly open on one side, with short brush on the other.

Beruit: Urban firefighting. Excellent medium sized map. Again, open to the sun. Enterable buildings (with no roofs). Lots of different angles to play and practice good for team communication.

Gettysburg: Narrow, forested, medium sized map. No bunkers, just hills and branches and some short grass for cover. Tough map, you can almost hit people from the get go. Pretty dusty when I played.

All in all, a decent place to play. Sure, you have to drive past cow farms, but once you're there I didn't notice any smell. Parking is plentiful. Hint. Get there early and park near the store and airfill station! That's the best place to be and be able to get to the other games. I paid $10 for all day air for my 68/4500, and didn't have to fill it up again once. Probably better to get it filled somewhere else for cheaper if you have a largish HPA tank. Oh, and if you've been playing paintball for five plus years, go into the advanced group there and quit complaining.
