T.A.G. - When I last played there, I was not impressed. Things may have changed, this was a long time ago.
Review: I first want to say I am a proud employee of I&I Sports Los Gatos. I do not want my position in influence anything except make the reader understand the person "communistsrlsrs", about the second-to-last review, should be ignored. I want to clarify a few things he complains about:

He says, "The field is sloped and the refs generally set up games with teams alternating between having the uphill advantage". This is not the case. When I play there, the games are set up "top-to-bottom" much less than they are "side-to-side". Bear Creek understands no one likes to hike up a hill while playing.

He goes on to say, "One of the worst [rules] is they make you chrono your gun before every single game...this is bullsh!t...etc". I am in awe of this statement. Bear Creek, like most fields, is committed to making sure their players have a SAFE and fun experience. This rule is in place to insure no player shoots over the internationally-accepted speed limit of paintball because goggles are only manufactured to withstand impacts up to that speed. If players are shooting "hot" or too fast, then paintballs can go through goggles and damage a player's eye. Beak Creek, like most fields, is committed to providing a safe and fun environment for everyone to participate. Me and the people I work with personally enjoy having rules such as this one enforced.

Later on he complains, "Also, you can't use pink, red, orange or any bright colored paint because "it stains clothes". Not only is this rule retarded it makes no sense b/c no one plays paintball in a pair of f*cking slacks!". Bear Creek does not allow and red or pink filled paintballs because they are known to stain not only clothes, but goggle lenses, equipment, bunkers, trees, cars, and everything else you can imagine. This rule is in place to ensure no one has to replace equipment or clothing resulting from a stain.

His closing complaints are, "Some of the other crap rules are no bunkering, surrender rule, and no guns shooting over 260fps". Bear Creek does not allow bunkering and requires use of the "surrender" rule because this is a field designed for the beginning and recreational player. It is very intimidating for a new player to be bunkered on their first day, no one wants that experience. The field's speed limit is 270 feet per second last time I played. Because everyone is playing at the same speed, there is no advantage or disadvantage. There is no issue here.

My final comment. The person who wrote that claims to be 16 years old. I am personally appalled by what he/she wrote. People like this give paintball a bad name. PBReview.com was not designed for immature people like this to complain after only playing at a field once! I am greatly disappointed. I hope this review was helpful, and if you have any other comments or questions, feel free to send me a personal message.
