fields of fire.. sc village... conquest.. california paintball park...
look... everybody talks about the field and how bad it is.. the fact of the matter is the people just dont like it because the refs piss them off and the service sux. the field is actually not that bad. you either start at the top or the bottom and to be honest no matter where you start there is still ways to go that will give you a good game. when i start at the top i take the huge hill and i get behind the other team every time and get an average of 5 kills a game. when i start at the bottom i can either take the hill or rush the city and i will get just as many kills as if i would have started on top. so the fact is that everybody who has been to paintball usa just gets mad at the refs. i was there one time and they had a girl ref there who doesnt paintball she said she was just friends w/ the owner. that got me kinda mad. plus the guys who work in the shop and the maintenance booth (if you can call it that) are real punks. they dont help you out at all. they just sit there like they hate there life. and the refs just act like they cant wait until the days over so they shorten the games sometimes and will stack the teams so the games are faster. you can tell that they dont want to be there. so basically the service sux. the other bad thing abuot it is that if your goin to go make sure you have your own gear or at least your own paint... they completely rip you off if you buy paint there. also the coupons are completely deceptive and they dont help you out at all because you still have to buy a whole bunch of stuff. its not that bad if you bring your own paint and rent there.. i used to do that about 4 years ago when i just started paintballin.. but DONT BUY THEIR PAINT. you can rent there but dont get ripped off w/ the paint.
i guess to sum everything up.. in order to have a good paintballing experience at paintball usa.. just stay away from the workers as much as possible and do everything yourself. try as hard as you can not to deal w/ the people or refs who work there... renting is not a huge hassel so its safe to rent as long as you bring your own paint.. even buying cheap paint at sport chalet is better than spending a fortune on theirs. but all things considered.. the field is fine but the service sux
So let me see if I have this straight...
The service sucks.
The refs are terrible.
There are huge hills.
The rentals suck.
The prices are too high.
You should avoid all of the staff.
and...you would be better off doing everything yourself.
But you gave this field an 8? Doesn't make sense to me.
