Basically everything is much crappier after they merged with another paintball company - EVERYTHING.
In the past, people who violated safety rules would be kick out of the game or banned from the field but now... they might get yelled at by a 15 year old kid who is volunteering as a ref.
Big. great for wood balls.
No longer use air honk to signal end of game (unlike before) - now using yelling which leaves players confused as to if the game is over or not.
Decent. Good for people who own their own equipment.
Staff are comprised of untrained or unknowledgeable people, some of whom are volunteer teenagers.
eg. "could you replace the O ring on my remote coil?" - me
"no, i have no experience with that and i don't want to screw up your coil" - staff
Poor explanation of games, leaving crucial details out.
No chronos at public field - very safe.
Use to have paper towels and water spray bottles for cleaning goggles, but not anymore
If you are using air at the public field, you have to walk over to the speed ball court. They will not have it at their main booth.
No longer uses 2 colour arm band system to differentiate teams (green on one arm and red on the other - so can distinguish by looking at the band less arm)
last time i went, they used only one colour on one team and band less for the other team.
For the people who have never been to this field, or only have been there recently - all i have to say is that it use to be better.
Tsawwassen Paintball is probably still the best field out there, but they are certainly not what they use to be. If they rectify theses issues mentioned above i would definitely give this field a 10.
It is not my staffs responsibility to work on your personal gear Stephen, as we discussed in our private emails on this matter. Remote coils are certainly not standard rental gear at any field I know of, and I have travelled North America playing. For a field referee not to know how to disassemble your personal gear is understandable.
If you would please remove this portion of your review, I would appreciate it. The rest of your comments I have already addressed.
