havent played in round rock before, but Paintball Knights in San Antonio is awesome.
Directions to the Field:
dont wast your time.
ok, im a rookie player, who played at their tournament today. it was the worst paintball experience of my life. nobody knew what they were doing at all.
the head ref made up the rules/point system DURING the captains meeting. the person filling my tank didnt know how (he actually told another ref he had never done it before). also, they wouldnt even fill it up all the way. me and my team are using 4500's and they only filled them up to 3000. they didnt call out wiping OR bonus balling (my team mate got hit 10 times and the ref next to him said "oooh thats some bonus balling!" and just stood there). they didnt even know what they were doing when they tried. one ref thought he saw a hit on a players arm, so instead of running over to check like any good ref, he call out (without moving a foot) "player!, let me see your arm! let me see your arm!" also, they use handheld chronos that really suck, had different readings for the same gun on different chronos.
i saw AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE WITH OUT BARREL SLEEVES. the refs saw them too, they just ignored it. they didnt care if you walked around the field without a mask, either. their "chrono station" (a ref with a hand crono) wasnt even behind nets. it was partially obscured by the nets. the sides and ends were covered, but the back where you entered just had a net running from top to bottom with 3 FEET OF SPACE ON EACH SIDE. there were people crono-ing 2 feet infront of/beside people without masks on. and if that wasnt bad enough, there were plenty of spaces in between the nets for paintballs to get through. there was almost no safety at all.
ok, on flagstation they said they just got a "new xball field". it wasnt. it was half xball / half no-name-recball bunkers. there wasnt even an X. worse than that, they didnt even have an entire field. they had 22 BUNKERS! FOR 5-MAN! half the team would get out off the break.
HOW IT WAS RUN:
they didnt even give you a schedule. they had one person calling out the names of the teams right next to the field. nowhere near the staging area. you had to get your gear ready, then wait by the field if you werent one of the lucky 2 teams who got the little area next to it.
CLEANLINESS: yeah, right. everything was covered in 3 year old paint, including the bathrooms. no, they werent port-o-potties. they were a ten-year-old cinder-block building with a door that wont close all the way, and a sink that looked like you would be making your hands worse than they already were.
they didnt run a tournament. they didnt even run paintball game. that wasnt paintball, that was who could cheat the best. CORRECTION: who could cheat THE MOST. they didnt even call them out for wiping except for once. i dont know about the rec ballers, but if your a tournament player, STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM THIS FIELD AS POSSIBLE. if you can make the drive, go to Paintball Knights in San Antonio. they know how to run tournaments. if you think this field is good, you havent played paintball. the worst field in SA is better that this. also, i dont know what the other guys on here are talking about. the xball field is a joke, they are probably paid to say their good. (im completely serious.)
this field gets a 1, only because there isnt a 0.
