Review: Alright Iv played a grand total of about 9 or 10 times all of which were at lone wolf. I don't have much experience so im just going to say what i liked.

Each time i have gone iv found a wide range of players both new and very experienced. Almost every1 uses a Tipp 98 or A5, some with mods some without. I have always seen no fewer than 20 and no greater than 30 people so the games are very even and laid across a wide area.

Terrain is awesome and very wide ranged. A swamp, a ravine, with lots of hills and natural terrain is great. Bunkers are well placed creating a very defined battle line with weaknesses on both sides allowing the opportunistic an advantage. The boundaries are well placed as well keeping the action confined but allowing enough room for strategy.

Refs are GREAT! They are very strict about goggles and barrel condoms. I have seen a ref run through a fire fight to give a paint check, and they are thorough. Service is out of a shanty but still is very helpful and polite. Prices are somewhat high id suggest bringing your own paint if you have a gun its prob 20-30 bucks cheaper. 20 to play all day 10 to 4 i think.

My only Beef with this field is that i have seen a lot of little kids 10-13 playing and it tends to mess up the play (hard to assault a bunker when you end up tagging a youngster at close range). Iv made one cry myself and it doesnt fell to good (nothing an ice cold Gatorade couldnt fix).

As to other people's dislike of a Head shot not counting i tend to disagree. I have never seen any1 get reamed for shooting at anothers head unless they are in very close proximity. Iv never seen any1 reamed at all for any kind of infraction but politely asked to leave and then told why. The idea is that a gun shot counts where as a head shot doesnt and i v noticed this rule keeps noobs from blindly shooting around a corner.

All in All im very satisfied with Lone Wolf West. The only way id go to another place is for a change in scenery.

They revamped the rules and headshots DO count now - It makes the game play go much faster, as you don't get stagnant games with people looking over the bunkers anymore
