After I went to a field in Pitt, i've decided to change my review. It was too long, anyway.
RENTALS: 9/10 Tippmann 98 customs that work well.
ACCOMMODATIONS: 10/10 The guys at skirmish have everything you need to play there, they even rent camo jumpsuits. There are also lockers and packs with tubes to rent. They have it all.
FIELDS: 9/10 This place has the best fields around. The Tippmann Castle was especially cool. The only problems were the occasional waits before and after games, and the distance from field to field means a bit of a walk.
REFS: 9/10 Our group of about 40 had two Refs, and they were great. They did the best they could to enforce the rules, but gave us too long of a break for lunch and before games to get ready. They were also very nice and informative.
LUNCH: 10/10 Bought from a snack bar. Reasonably priced, food consists of hot dogs, hamburgers, gatorade or soda, and various snacks. Excellent for the price.
PAINT: 8/10 Must be bought at Skirmish, Diablo Midnight, Green shell and yellow fill.
(Edit: The paint might have been draxxus)
SPECIALS: 9/10 They have many group benefits and Reduced Rate days, you also get to keep a flag you capture- a nice touch. Players with their own equipment get 100 paintballs free- normally not a big deal, but when you are paying $10 at skirmish for that, it is well worth it.
PRICE: 3/10 Normally the prices are horrendous, but if you go on a 1/2 price or other special day you can reduce the sting in the wallet. At least you get free c02 fills.
