There are 8 fields right now in Charlotte. There are 10 if you count Command Decisions and Wolf Creek which are about 1.5 hours away. You can probably get to PBC Greenville or Greensboro in slightly over that time, and TriggerTyme and Ball Busters in SC within about 1.75 hours.
Of the 8 Charlotte fields, three have put major investment into upgrading their fields in the past few months (PBC, Mighty Sports, and Boss). For that matter, Mighty Sports was just built late last year as a brand new field. Paintball Paradyes has only been open maybe 2-3 years. That's a lot of choices to have for our Metro population. Honestly, I would like to see about 2 of the fields die off - I'm hopeful people will pay for good product and the "cheap and sleazy" fields won't last. As far as good fields that I'm concerned about, I like Paintball Kingdom and Paintball Paradyes but I'm not sure where they're headed. Boss and PBC will keep on trucking as the premiere Charlotte Fields while Command Decisions will still be the go-to scenario field this year again.
If your field of choice doesn't seem to be doing well, go try another one. There are way too many good options out there to try.
Is TriggerTyme still open? I play at BallBusters but I heard they closed down?
