I had the honor to go to the tippmann world challange. It was by far the best Paintball Experience in my life. Thousands of people, vendors, Prizes, Military tatics. It was the best thing for a senerio player. I did use alot of paint, but at the time it was BYOP so it was worth it. I think it was a little expesive, but it was sweet. The reffs are kinda new at it, but the did there part.
Futureball's outdoor field is definitely the only one that competes.
The head ref, "Popeye" acts like a drill sergeant so that nobody does anything stupid. He's pretty funny too. In public, he'll scare the crap out of you but he's really nice man-to-man.
Field's can be a little cheap and compact, but overall a blast. You'll find the boundary lines aren't always super obvious, but you get over it. There's this one multiple story castle that's a lot of fun, along with a "village", essentially a lot of metal, freight car-like boxes with a lot of scrap metal. Those are some fun courses. Prices decent. Good enforcement. Good, honest, average field.
The filed is ok. The bad aprts is that 1-the oldest ref thinks hes in the army and says out loud yelling "lets move ladies"!!!. It is just really stupid and lame. Th rest of the refs are pretty good ones. Prices are reasonable, byop. Most ppl dont like the fact that if you have an electric hopper you have to paly in advance or if you have anything electric or an hpa tank. I like to play advanced with a old pgp. Its really easy cuz most arent that good. The fields themselves are sweet. The best is the village. A bunch of house-like buildings. The only other bad part is the time between games. Usually 10 minutes. 8/10.
Atomix, Futureball. If you want speedball, definatly go to Atomix. If you want woodsball/hyperball, defintaly go to Hells Survivors. Nothing beats it for woodsball.
Getting registered, buying paint, getting fills, etc is very easy and quick at Hells Survivors. The head ref (an ex-army drill sarge we call Popeye) is the best I've seen at explaining rules to new people and experienced a like. And he enforces them very well too.
The fields here are very well kept. Underbrush is cut down and the fields are clean. The fields are large, and can accept up to 80 people at a time. They have great variation too. One is a large cliff, another is a castle attack/defend (and when I say castle, I mean a large, well built castle with multiple entrances), another is a village type game with lots of small buildings, and then anoter field that is a fight over two bridges that go accross a stream with the flag in the middle of one of the bridges. There is also a hyperball field, and the owner says that they are planning a 10 man speedball field for next year.
As for pricing, the prices are good. Its 15 bucks for entry, and 60 for a case of paint, but you can bring your own paint for no additional charge. Any color. The only place where you get totally ripped off is in air fills. To fill a 68/3000 its 6 bucks. CO2 is pretty cheap though.
They hold three senerio games per year. I went to World Conquest this past year, and it was probably one of the most fun times Ive had in my life. The size of the battles that occured for key points in the HUGE FIELD (they open up most of the field that usually isnt played on during rec for senerio games) were amazing. It was run very smoothly too.
Overall this field is very nice. I wish they would give free air fills and maybe play for a little longer than 3 hour sessions. Also a Xball field would be great.
umm future paintball is a really good indoor paintball field...
atomixs is another good indoor paintball feild
but hell survivors is the best
i have been playing at hell survivors every wed. for our clan pratice...INSANESPYDERS
i have been really shocked about how much fun you can have there..they have a nice big feild..if you are the competeing type inter in the michgan monster game held and hell. the people that work there are really nice.and give you help all the time.
so.....lets go play some ball
I think this field is the best. The big games always rock. There are problems with some of the refs from time to time but usually not much of a problem. Nice little speed ball course not fancy or anything but works for team practices. This field is awesome and if your a V.I.P. its even better becuase you get dicounts right down the street at Exotic Sportz. Plus being able to cut inline is an awesome feeling. If you haven't played here you should give it a try.
this is the best field i have ever played at though out my time thats 7 years. i love this place they are always on top of things. they have the best refs and some of the biggest games. the field prices are a little more then the store. this is the best place in michigan. they have a been for 20 years or around there
Atomix in Walled Lake is a good field if you like to play indoors
Hell Survivors is an awsome field to play at. It has 5 different areas that you get to play at, a castle you take and defend, a huge hill that you take, a swamp you can play in, and a little village. the price is right and you can bring your own paint to.
lone wolf and ultimate paintball challenge, not as big or as good
best outdoor field I have ever played in. hs has everything, a swamp, a castle and every bunker you can imagine. they even have a plane and a crashed apc. the refs are pretty good and the prices are pretty good. hs also has three massive scenario games. you should definitely go to hs, while your there you should visit hell michigan just a few miles away
This place is horrible not to be rude or anything but i hate it the prices are so jacked up there and ooo myy gosh the judges i seriusly saw a judge whipe a kids mask before in the middle of a game, and then i got hit on my loader and then judge cam over was like i saw it you realy didnt get hit and whiped it but i just sayed "hey foo this aint paintball no mor brotha i will forgive you but i will never come her again". Then i was playing th owners son and i bunkered him and the judge saw it and kicked me out even though the rule board say's bunkering is ok if they say yes or no before the game about it and they did sya yes that day.
so over all i would never go here and i would like to say this place is haunted as well the ghost were scary!!!
