I really need to get a list of bands I have in my library.  It might be enlightening to some...

You can only market "upgrades" on craigslist and eBay nowadays.  Pacos hit it on the head.


In Topic: West versus East

02 July 2014 - 01:12 PM

The east is just more accessible I think.  You've got huge teams out of Canada coming down into PA and NY.  Michigan Monster Game, Castle Conquest, CPX Sports and more within a half days drive from thousands of players around the nation.  Plus I don't know how many times I've heard "Don't even bother to play a scenario on the West Coast."  I've never once heard it about anything besides DDay east of the Rockies.

 

I think the draw of eCelebs definitely helps but I still have a great time going back to my "home" field even though its 5 hours away just to see all the guys I grew up playing with.  I think the draw of eCelebs is just that, they have a huge following online already which many local players don't have and will struggle to find.  Many also now have the advantage of having generaled upwards of a dozen or more huge events.  They know how to motivate, how to work the fields, and how to prepare.  Everyone also has they favorites...  ATrain, Mike, Kaz, TomCat, and dozens more.  Who doesn't want to see their e-hero battle it out on the field instead of online?


In Topic: Good Starter Tactical Vest?

23 June 2014 - 12:23 PM

I saw your other post and I really think you are getting paintball confused with airsoft.  Milsim in paintball is just not effective.  Go with a large capacity pod pack.  Molle is useless if all you have to carry is pods.  

 

Keep the negativism to yourself.  If the OP wants a vest and asks a specific question about that and you don't like it, move along.  Otherwise your post is just clutter.

 

Now, me personally, I love the old special ops vests in MOLLE.  If you can find an old forge vest you won't get one much better than that.  I used mine for a little over 6 seasons of play and it took everything I could give it.  The one thing which sucks about MOLLE vests is you are always spending more money for new attachments. 

 

The dye vests are also really nice.  Mike swore by them for a time.  The dye MOLLE attachments are also really well put together, albeit expensive.


In Topic: ANY BIG GAMES IN FLORIDA?

Waynes World big games?  Mike would know a lot more and unfortunately I can't link to the site at work :(  Web filter and such...
