Review: First off I can only tell you about the Trilogy Games (Global Conquest, Michigan Monster Game, and Tippmann World Challenge) as I live 2 hours away and dont go to open play.

Paint: This is a FPO field at $60.00 a case or $15.00 a bag (tax included in price) and is stored in a refridgerated trailer. The paint breaks red (close to blood red as you get) and is made by Draxxuss (Pro Caps) it is called Fireball and has a Custom fill and shell and is Inferno Grade. Its fill is thick and breaks easily on a body. This paint is well worth it for the price and works in all guns and the bore size averages .689. Fireball is the only paint allowed on the field or in the chrono area and the field does hopper and pod checks.

Field: This is the best field I have ever been at. Troop insertions are done by deuce and a halfs and humvees that follow a road which loops the field provided they are not in Iraq (these are actual military vehicles). The bunkers are nice and there are many many base complexes including a village (25 or so 1 story buildings you can go into with a 2 story building in the middle) 2 story castle, 3 story Tippmann Towers, 3 story Highlands, 2 story west point, NEW prop wooden tank and 3 pillboxes including sandbags for Firebase Bravo. Currently the other 3 base complexes are being redesigned and rebuilt.

Refs: The ref are the best I have seen ever! they are at every base 100% of the time and they follow most every firefight. This field is insane about safety. They use color coded ID cards and radar tags which incorporate a 3 strikes your out system for safety violations using hole punches on your id tag. 3 strikes doesnt mean your dead it means your out of the field "possibly for life". They also have 2 chrono stations always manned 1 has 3 stations and the other has 8 stations. In addition to this they have ATV and golf cart mounted chrono stations and pocket chronos for on field tests.
side note: At a game this year I saw a boy who didnt have his mask tight and it got knocked off onto the ground "IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIREFIGHT", within seconds a ref pushed the boy to the ground and shielded the boys entire face and head with his body curling up over the boys head while a second ref retrieved the boys mask. talk about quick thinking.

Refs in play: By far one of the most innovative concepts ever. simply put these are players who also ref but in these games they are UNDERCOVER refs. Play fair and safe cause you never know if the player next to you in a firefight is a ref or not.

Safety: The safest field I have ever seen. Check hydro dates. chrono tags are color coded. 289 FPS or less. Barrel plugs are NOT ALLOWED must be BARRELL SOCKS. Masks on at all times within the field or chrono (signs, tape, and refs remind you of this)
No tools allowed on the field and all gun work needs to be done inside the chrono area with your mask on. You cannot remove your barrel sock in the staging area PERIOD.

Air: Its free, almost. The only air you have to pay for is co-2 being put into your own personal tanks i dont know how much it costs cause I have never seen anyone use their own co2 tanks. The field offers FREE co-2 tanks when you give them your State ID card at the registration window and these tanks utilize the Tippmann quick fill system filling by pressure by 1 one the 30 or so quick fill self serve stations. HPA is also FREE and uses self fill stations that are "idiot proof".

Proshop: It is a custom made, side opening, 53' semi-trailer "SWIIT" a little over priced but usually very well stocked and the guys are pretty knowledgeable.

Bathrooms: well the only bad thing of the field but what can you say everyone knows what a porta potty is. They have 8 of these plus 2 for women. they are changed out at every big game. There are hand washing facilities on site and hoses on a table for equipment cleaning.

Food: lacks a bit but the vendors at the big games and Marcos pizza take pretty good care of you at the normal inflated prices, not too inflated though.

Bonuses: the big games have Raffles except for global which has an auction. Their are mercenanies you can hire using officer money as well as tanks and the tanks are unkillable. You can use money for a airplane mission where you are invulnerable untill you parachute off but can throw grenades while your on it. You can use grenades at this field "Baby Blue Fill" like tippmanns and COLD BURNING smoke grenades NO FUSES "pull pin only".
