I only have enough money right now for admission and 1 case of paint and I'm hoping I can scrape by with that. I have a 98c with e-grip and will be on semi the whole time to help cut down on paint. Do you guys think it would work? I may be using a t9 if my friend cant go so that would help even more.

It's possible if being very selective with your shots. You could also focus on accomplishing missions and objectives with whatever legion you're in so you don't have to be a frontline shooter. Could also ask your legion commander about playing the role of medic if you think that is something you can do.

Don't, they aren't legal. You'd be better off acting as a medic and helping your team where at all possible.

Everyone knows my opinion on this but ill state it again. If you are only planning on bein on the line, not a medic or something like that, get at least two cases. The shear amount of people you can run into along with nerves from an event of this size you will use a lot of paint. He dinner battle and final battle will cost most people a case. Still if you pllay conservatively you can make one case happen.

My friend did last year. But he wss extremely conservative and played pump. You could try that, or just help out your team without being on the front lines.

Through the past 5 scenarios (local ones and legends), my friend and I have consistently only gone through a case (if that) combined per scenario and we like to be up on the front lines. It is very possible to conserve paint and play aggressive. You just have to be selective with your shots at the same time.

LLV I went through 5 cases... planning on 7-8 this year. I provide firepower during objectives. My squad really appreciated the cover fire, and you can be more aggressive on front lines AND objectives knowing you have plenty of ammo. It is way more fun with paint flying through the air. That being said, a one-case scenario can still be fun, just a completely different playing style.

You could. I'd suggest to play pump or play as a medic to try to cut down on paint. I'd really recommend to try to be a medic as they can be essential to game, and it can really save you some paint. I do believe it's possible to do.

Borg did legends on one case, he shot fools all day long. We had to force him to use a full case.
He was always selective with his shots and used the suppression fire of others to get forward - play smart and that will be fine :)

I usually run with only a case every year, but it all really depends on how often you get into... THE ZONE o_O

If you end up going and run out of paint, you can buy a single bag from me if you need to. Just an offer so you won't have to buy a whole case.
