Nitehawk- Woodsball, but much better paint and prices, not to mention a nicer owner. Blows VA out of the water
Linken paintball- MUCH friendlier servce. Smaller, but better field.
I've played in two tourny's at VA. Both were pretty bad experiences.
Field: The field was pretty bad. It's a sand field in what looks like a big yellow circus tent. Visibility was poor, and the sand got everywhere imaginable. (it's fine grain sand to, will wreak havok on your gun). I feel sorry for the people with tinted lens
Service: The employe's are friendly enough. KC However seems to have a headset glued to his ear at all times and is more worrie about that then his actuall customers.
Products: Their paint is substandard. Their so called "premium" is about on par with paint you would find at wal-mart. Soft spots on 98% of the balls made it next to impossable to break on anything short of a gun or mask hit. Though I heard the normal stuff was good stuff. I'm dissapointed that they can only fill up too 3000PSI but that;s only a minor detail.
Tourny: The tourny was poorly run. The intermideate players always get screwed. If you've ever played in a tourny there you will get bumped up to the next slot(advanced/pro w/e) It really sucks too. Reff's are sharp though they have a lot of help(spectaters can see everything!) At the end of the day the gave away prizes, they throw them into the croud(brutle) but they are decent prizes(a raffle would be better)
I won't be going back for a long time. Lincon and nitehawk are closer and much better fields overall. I give it a 3 because the staff is nice and KC is helping lincon paintball grow with his service.
