Arkenstone - I played at the old one and it was so much better than this PB-Atl.
Nitro - is awesome and so much cheaper. Refs are cool and owner is really cool too
This place has no pro-shop! How retarded is that? I played here with a large group of people and everyone agreed that the fields are okay, but they need more woods ball fields b/c they have only 1 (that sucked). Everyone also agreed that the refs make this place a bad experience.
The refs were horrible, they were control freaks and yelled at everyone any chance they got b/c someone forgot their barrel plug or whatever it may have been. We all know these rules are in place for our safety but the method in which they enforce them is totally uncalled for. Don't yell at someone like an adult scolding a child, speak to them like an adult. One of the guys playing was supposedly their "head ref," had gotten into numerous shouting bouts with people. All the ref's suck. They are children and a few adults who are on ego trips and will get knocked out shouting at the wrong people one of these days. I got mad just listening and they weren't even shouting at me.
The refs yelling at people is for their own safety supposedly, but their field isn't even that safe. I see people playing full auto there, their whole method for the break is horrible and unfair to at least one of the teams, and everyone takes their guns and just shoot randomly before every game without looking to see if some one is about to walk by or not. Bad.
They split teams up so that all the amateurs were on the same team so that their friends would all be on the winning team. The opposing team won every single game is how bad they split it. Then the refs were even telling the other team players field information so that they would have an edge. When someone on our team tried to help out after being "dead," the ref would hurry over and force us away from the game area.
I've got an annual pass (girl bought a gun for me) and can get my paint for $60/cs there, but I still don't even know if i want to go back or not. Even for free with my pass.
If you guys at paintball atlanta read this, you need to put some rules in place about dealing with patrons there and how to treat them if they do break the safety rules on accident(which will of course happen occasionally). I've got a group of about 15 of us that play together, and we may never come back because of your refs.
