High Velocity indoor field- bayshore
Alright, i've seen you guys posting reviews and i joined up to say this, some of you guys leave something out each time one of you speaks (almost each one anyway) so ill start this review with as soon as you get there.
So you arrive there and the first 3 things you'll notice are 1. right next to a strip club 2. right next to power station/dump 3. there's no lighting. well, obvoiusly its not a good neighborhood, if they tried to build in a nice area they'd never have been able to build, and no there's no lighting outside, Well who cares!?! what, you cant see the see-through glass window and the light coming from inside- as well as the people who go out for a smoke? Not only that but, theres hardly any fields with good outside lighting.
Next, when you walk in there are usually plenty of space on weekdays and sunday no matter what, there at least 30 diffrent tables to put your gear bag on. The floor usually is always dirty when those 2 new refs work, so you'll be stepping on paintballs often sometimes, the setup is nice and the on site IPS store is great and open as long as the arena's open. on to the refill station guy (I do know his name FYI) yes, the fat one that everyone has a problem with. well to start off, think how he feels sitting thhere all day basically, and hearing noob (yes noob) 11 yr olds be retarded thinking they no so much about the sport, then those kids slam the tank in front him and say "i need air". He's a nice guy if you get to know him, he's also a great paintballer whom i have alot of respect for. sometimes he'll snap if you get him annoyed or angry, well- No sh*t, and at the very least say please or thank you.
The field, depending on the ref's is going to tell you what to expect, basically if its the two new ones (who's names i dont know) which you can tell by if there using the riot shield things, the field willl be cleaned maybe every 8th game and the floor will be cleaned every 9th, every other ref cleans every other or each game. excluding the 2 new refs, they will check your paint, make sure you have chronoed your gun, all that good stuff, they'll also make sure to check you to see if you get shot.
Now the ref's & staff on site. as im sure you've noticed by now, i have a problem with those 2 new refs who i dont even really know. those 2 always seem to ref together and if you seem them refing, i pray to god for you. Besides them everyone is nice, though sometimes the kinda rotund one at the end of the store by the back door looks mean he's really fun and nice at heart. Now back to the 2 ref's. They are usually lazy and dont clean the field, never check for chrono or paint.they always stack the good vs the bad players. if anyone shold rally be fired-its them. one time my freind went it with me 2v6 because it was their whole group and they didnt want to split, might i add they didn't even chrono their guns, and so as soon as those ref's got on field they started chatting, so we waited for 10 minutes ( i counted) before we started. 2 minutes later he was shot and the refs were still talking. he tried to get up and walk off but each time he tried, they shot at him (yes he was signaling he was out) after two more minutes of him shouting at the ref's who were still chatting away, he just got up and ran. afterward he asked forsome bandaids since some of the shots he got while trying to get off the field were bleeding. they literally walked away still chatting, took 10 minutes (which never ever happens any other time) to go behind the desk, came back with band aids- still talking.
Safety. They have alot of great rules for beginners they dont allow bunkering, and they do yell at you if you dont keep your barrel sock on. they also kick you out (literally) if your playing with modes like psp millenium or uncapped and break any other kinds of rules aswell. all in all they have great rules
Final: overall its one of the best beginer places to go, and they also have a night specifically for advanced players on tuesday, its a great place to save some money and still go ballin', i love the place. but i have to minus for those two refs and how they usually dont clean the floors untill they actually see how bad it is.
