OK....This is the best built field in the area. The level of quality and thought put into the development of the fields is great. The games are action packed, the staff is EXTREMELY nice and helpful and the field is easily accessible from the main road unlike most fields in the area. In addition all the fields are in close proximity to the building which means easy access to air and other supplies. There is a great mechanic there; he was able to fix one of our teammate's Cocker after Check-it and PEVS could not rectify the problem...and he did it for far less than Check-it or PEVS. The field only has compressed air so dont bring your CO2. If you plan to play all day you may want to bring 2 cases or buy 2 cases...really! At least their paint prices are reasonable...around $45. Unlike other fields in the area; your gun has to be under 300fps; which means that you can chrono at 299fps if you want. There is no 20ft, 10ft, or 5ft rule which is cool. There also appeared to be know rule on gun settings considering that their rental guns are all Tippman A-5s with response triggers (which is cool if you intend to rent).
The cost to play at WARPLAY is almost double that of any of the other fields in the area (PEVS is the second most expensive). Furthermore they charge you to use your own paint (the paint that they sell is not the best) which is strange to us. The fields are all woodsball and all games are respawn so there was rarely a win, if any from either team. We enjoy woodsball as much as we enjoy speedball but we are not big fans of respawn...we like for the games to actually have an ending...which brings me to a point we mentioned earlier; most will easily rip through 3000-4000 balls. The biggest CON of them all is BLIND FIRING; it is permitted at this field.
This is a great scenario field....maybe one of the best. (In a sidebar with the owner he mentioned that there are more fields on the way and they sound great). However, the price to play and the all-the-time-respawn was a turnoff for us. Also there are no speedball fields at all; there is however one game (King of the Hill) that mimics speedball. Again, the staff is nice and knowledgeable and create a welcoming atmoshere. There is a lot of action but you use A LOT of paint...and spend a lot of money. We will have to give it an 8 because of the costs involved and the fact that the games usually ended in a draw. We recommend that you visit at least once for the experience.
