EhBomb28 Sunday, March 8th, 2009
Period of
Field Use:
Just once
Date There: March 7th, 2009
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Skirmish - Skirmish is way more expensive but has a lot more fields to play on.
Directions
to the Field:
My GPS knew LVP as "Global Paintball" so if you are doing a search in your GPS, you might want to try that.
Review: *Prices - $18 for field fee and all day air. $55 for a case of Diablo Formula 13.
*Field Surface - The field has turf sitting on top of concrete. This made for great sliding, but there was one section of turf that came up as I was sliding into a bunker. Also, I recommend knee pads as the ground is hard and it will begin to hurt after a couple slides without them.
*Field Setup - LVP is in an old warehouse with the ceiling supported by metal "I" beams. The field is setup in a way to avoid having normal running lanes go near these beams, I think that hurt their ability to lay out a really great field. The far side seems cluttered with tacos and a long can and the back lacks good bunkers for taller players.
*Reffing - There was only one ref watching a game and he stood at the 50 on the near side the entire time. That makes it nearly impossible to get a paint check on yourself or anyone else, which isn't terrible, but it is annoying.
*Players - I didn't have a problem with any of the other players. All seemed to be honest calling themselves out and were friendly and helpful.
*Play time - There was quite a bit (15-20) min) of downtime between games slowing down the pace of the day. Also, since games weren't that frequent, most people played in each game resulting in large (8 or 9) teams on a field that's good for 4-4 or 5-5.
*Other - The refs took a 1/2 hour for dinner around 5 during which time there was no play. This again slowed the pace of the day down. I suppose if you planned to eat then to, you might welcome that break though.

*Overall
What it comes down to really is this: Would I play there again? Yes, I would. The experience as a whole was good, but the pace, field condition, and reffing could have been better.
