It's debatable depending on who you ask are the best but to keep from flaming the website I will list some games that draw large numbers and you can do your own homework to decide where you want to play..not listing them in any order of importance just what pops into my brain first and forgive me if I forget somebodys game.
1. D-Day, Oklahoma 2. CPX sports, Living Legends produced by Viper, Chicago Area 3. Skirmish 4. Wayne World Grand Finale, Florida 5. Final finale in Georgia 6. Twilight Zone, TXR, Houston Texas (You can also check viperpaintball.com for other Texas games) 7. Decay of Nations: World Pandemic, SC Village, Chino, CA
There more but thats all I can think of at the momment.
At my field, there are anywhere from 6-20 people that walk on on Saturday, and even fewer on Sunday. The refs just wait around forever and then ask everyone if they want to play speed all or woodsball. The kids all say speedball, and the rest of us all say woodsball, and then no one is really happy with what the ref decides on. Basically, we end up playing 2 rounds of speedball on a tiny field of pallets and 12" high weeds, switching sides in between, and then sitting there for another 30 minutes until the process starts over again.
Do most fields split up woodsballers, and speedballers, or do they make them play together?
Also, do most fields schedule games, as in having a certain amount o intermission between games, or do th do loke my field, and just wait on everyone to get pissed off before that start another one?
I've only been to this one field (its the only one within 2.5 hours drive time) so I don't know what is normal. Can someone please describe a normal day at their field, and how they run things?
Thanks in advance for your help.
I have noticed many of your threads asking different questions about wanting to know if this is the way it's done or wanting to put together your own PBclub or outlaw type field. Honestly, you really need to get out and drive the distance. It's really to bad you are in Lubbock but, honestly and sincerely I would like to suggest you get out and make the 4 to 8 hours drive to a field with more traffic or large scenario games..There was one in Dallas this weekend and another large scenario game coming to Houston in November. Plan for it if you can. You really will have a better understanding on the field then on the computor..Forums are perfect for extra help and finding places to place and meeting players but they will never replace on the field experience. I wish you all the best in your quest to learn, it's wonder that you are trying so hard to create your own PB community where you live. I wish more people would.
I am not defending playing at a field for any special reason, but I don't think this post is about expenses from the original post..I understand your position because most college kids are poor. Since you are itemizing..you forgot to figure the cost of gas to go get your paintballs and air and the food you eat at home, not to mention the fact that you won't have easy access to a gun tech or field store if something came up. Even if your parents paid, gave you a ride or bought your grocerys the money was spent. I also agree the safey of having chronos and refs are worth the few extra dollars...
(FYI, off topic and none of my business)..Gatorade should be drank days before you play not while you playing..drink water!
My last thing to say.."it's only thought to be safe, until someone gets hurt..then we all suffer.that's how bans, laws and restrictions are written....we should police ourselves before outsiders that don't understand paintball make rules and laws for us.."
