Operation Paintball - Cost more, not as good
Review: I played pb a few years back with a group at CPX back when it was challenge park. Recently I bought my own equipment and decided I would like to play a little more than once every couple of years.
Of the 3 times I've been out this year 2 of them have been to Fox. The reason for the return was that it was cheaper, closer to more of the players and seemed better run than our other day at Operation Paintball. BYOP is a big plus.

$30 entry is a touch expensive but it's not too bad. I've never bought paint here and I have never personally used one of their rentals. Friends who did usually went with the upgraded A5 rental which seemed to play well for them. The same friends noted poor performance from the C98 rentals at OP.

Fields are decent. The first time we went out I though that they were way to small. I had only played larger fields at CPX beforehand. I got used to the size though and found that they did have some much larger maps, we were just a small group. I assume they were trying to size appropriately.

The first time out we had a lot of down time between games. Things seemed poorly run. We almost didn't return because of that. The second trip again was much better. I had enough time to hit the head and air up before heading back. A stark contrast to the previous where I could have sat for lunch.

Refs seemed alright to me. I felt bad for them at times as there were plenty of players yelling at the refs to do paint checks on players they hadn't even come close to hitting. I had a couple of illegitimate ones called on me to the point where I felt the opposing team was just using them to get me to stop firing or put something in the open.

At times the games were noticeably one sided. It was obvious that one group were regular players and the others were rentals. I was with the rentals for a few games and we were consistently murdered. Not that I didn't appreciate the challenge of insurmountable odds, but I felt that the refs should have done a better job dividing those teams if only based on the players look and equipment.

The shop was my favorite part. I was in the middle of a game when my marker simply stopped shooting. I was getting air but no ball. The guy at the shop explained to my ratcheting feeder was broken. After a little bit of talking he traded me one from the rentals for mine, free of charge. Completely unnecessary and very much appreciated. That kept me in the game for the rest of the day and made me a person who will certainly be back to play.
