I know, I know. "It's a year away!" Yes I get it.

 

This purpose of this topic is to start some chit chat, and build up to the event itself. 

 

I will attempt to keep this all up to date and post dates, teams, generals, squad leaders, all of that.

 

Basically anyone who wants to talk about LL8, do it here.


LL8 couldn't come any faster.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

I'm out next year. New baby coming in October and my wife would probably murder me if I even suggested going. Hopefully I can make it out for LL9.

As this event grows, mistakes made in planning & running it are amplified. 

 

Things like restrooms - On Sunday, CPX closed down the building bathrooms on Sunday, which were the Women's restrooms on Friday and Saturday. This left the women with using the port-o-potties that has been pee'd all over by the guys all day Friday and Saturday. I understand the property is on septic, and it's not ready to handle 3,000 people in a weekend, so plan on this properly and bring in APPROPRIATE female restrooms, not port-o-potties

 

Parking - The parking situation is horrific at best, it was bad at LL5, it's disastrous at this point. People are getting blocked in, people are parking anywhere they possibly can, they've got 500 spots for 2,000+ cars. 

 

I understand that an event of this size is complex, expensive, and difficult, but considering it's going on it's 8th year, many of these issues need to get corrected.

 

This year, they had close to 1,800 pre-registrations. IF you assume CPX makes $100 in profit on each one, that's $180,000 in upfront money they can use to put this together properly. 

 

 

The event (living legends) has long since outgrown the location (CPX), they aren't going to be given too many more chances to fix these issues before people stop going. 

 

They NEED to get this right. 

 

 

If you plan a wedding for 4,000 people, and only 3,500 show up, sure you might "overpay" a smidge on everything, but at least all 3,500 of those guests have a place to sit, and food to eat. Everyone is happy

 

If you plan a wedding for 2,000 people, and 3,000 people show up, you obviously now have a HUGE problem. Not enough seats, not enough food, everyone is pissed off, tension in the air, fighting, etc

Will definately try to be there again as well.

There probably will be new problems that will come up during LL8 but I hope the ones from past LLs are resolved

The only real issue for me was how wet the field had gotten I fell so many times even at the beginning of the first skirmish lol and cracked my halo shell :( but hey that's mother nature for ya

I got out of the paintball loop for like 4 months and I planned to go to LL7, but since I was out of the loop I completely forgot.

Hopefully next year.

I actually used the Reebok ATV 19+ shoes at LL7, and they worked so amazing I can't even begin to tell you

 

Yes I know they are crazy looking, yes I know they look like I have an octopus on the bottom of my feet, yes I understand how silly/dumb/crazy/insane/goofy/nerdy/stupid yada yada they look

 

But they performed AMAZING

 

No issues on smooth, wet concrete. No issues in deep mud, no issues on gravel, no issues on wet grass

 

For these conditions, with it being wet, slippery, muddy and miserable, they worked SO much better than anything I could have imagined.

I'll be there again as usual. This time I have to be honest, I didn't even hardly make an attempt to talk to a few TechPBers, other than Willie, Kevin, and Orange.. I was there with my two brothers and since my last time at LL3 the TechPB staging area seemed like it was very sequestered into groups of people who all knew eachother well. At LL3 it was just a huge conglomerate of people who had only seen screen names and text before LL, all hanging out and having fun. I hope to see that again next year.

Drive, fly, take the train, walk, learn how to teleport, your options are pretty open. All it takes is money and your parent/guardian's permission.

Well half the team was staged near the spawn, the other half staged in the pits

 

This year was completely different, since many of us had leadership roles on the field, we staged near the hospital.

Quite a few friends and I, who have never been to a living legends event, are excited to try and go to LL8 but it seems like living legends is always the third weekend in May which happens to be over finals. Any chance LL8 would be over the weekend of the May22-24 or is it pretty certain it will be May 15-17.

For LL8, they should make the skirmishes optional, but worth actual game points toward a win plus maybe some extra medic cards and stuff. I loved the field that the skirmishes were on during LL7 and so did everyone I talked to about it. I liked how it was off the actual field itself and it was just really fun to play on so hopefully they keep that the same for LL8.
