Review: Safety- The field is pretty safe. There are some idiots that take off their mask on the field. Being a paintball ref, I don't care how hot it is, it sure beats not having an eye. One thing that makes me angry is that they take off the safeties on the rental guns. How stupid is that?

Fields - I personally dont like playing woodsball, but some of the setups are pretty cool. Alot of big rocks to hide behind and some cool tanks and stuff.

Hours - pretty long play but it depends how fast your group can get ready to go back and forth b/w fields. You can play 5 times more at paintball on the fly.

Prices - ugh where to start. This place is almost as big as a ripoff as Skirmish. I guess its cool to suck a lot of people that are new to sport of buying very crappy paint at a high price. The paint grade sucks. At least they make a profit off of paint. Its just over priced, paintball is expensive enough.

Staff - friendly for the most part, but they treat you like you're idiots like you never held a gun before.

facilities - a few trailers and tents, they work.

I wouldn't say taking safety off rental guns is stupid.

I ref all the time, and been doing it for 15 years. Safeties on a gun are actually a headache. When I've reffed at fields with safeties on the guns, this is what I get, at the start of EVERY game,

"Ref, my gun doesn't work!"

"Take off the saftey."

"Where's that?"

"Small button above the trigger."

"Where's that, what, come show me!!"

Now multiply that by 5 or 7 players a game times 8 or 10 games a day.

Damn, I mean, most players who rent markers have a hard enough time remembering to take off their barrel sleeves, and I make a verbal announcement to do so before I count down each game. Add 2 or 3 people like that into the mix.

Most of my games spent with predominently "rental" players include the first 7 minutes or so going around swabbing out barrels of those forgetting to take off a barrel sleeeve or turning off a saftey. That's time wasted in reffing the game. Then these are the players who turn around and write bad reviews about a field saying that the guns suck, they break balls in the barrel, or just plain don't fire.

Barrel sleeves are a much easier method to actually enfore, and much easier for a ref to see that it's actually on the gun, even from a distance. You can't see a safety unless you're right up near the guy.
