Cheaters have no place in paintball, all they do is give paintball a black-eye. I wish they would cheat at poker games and get their buts kicked or worse. That's what they deserve!

because too many players would find themselves waist deep in the lake.....

because overshooting is already too big of a problem when you can see what your shooting at.....

because nobody would ever call themselves out......

You have no idea what you're even talking about?

I guess when your idea of a 'Big Game' is 70-players, anything over that must seem crazy to you. 

Stop hanging out with loosers...

This will be the first year OMHW does not show for TWC, and for all the reasons mentioned previously. Field has gone down hill fast, rampant overshooting, wiping, poor sportsmanship, etc. Too many of us drive from too far to be again disappointed at what the TWC has turned into. Also our allegience to Tippmann has diminished and many of us have gone to other markers, as well as how Tippmann treated two of our members who were employees of Tippmann, corperate paintball, profit over play both Dave and Tippmann.......

Hey Oldsoldier

If you are not planing on playing in the TWC this year..

How about getting paid, to help referee the game instead?

I think you guys would be a great asset to the event!

summary.....
cram 10 people in a phone booth with markers, start shooting.
the field is way too small to have that many people. eventually
what happens is players start shooting anything, hit or not, just
so they can say they marked someone. i think the overshooting
is a justification so they don't feel like they wasted money. you
can keep yelling you are out, marker in the air, and guaranteed
you will get nailed all the way back to the dmz

Its not as bad when some people get overshot. I donb't exactly mind cause its usually at a distance. But when you have 10-12 year old kids, or whatever the minimum age is, scared to come out of their bunkers because someone is dumping on it at 25bps while their barrel is raised WITH a barrel bag. Then thats just BS.

Needless to say I just about tossed that guy in the lake so the kids could walk off.

By the way Dave, if you want my honest opinion, you could make the TWC totally awesome again.

First thing, reffereeing. I still see too many refs sitting around not doing anything. Give them some padded clothes and get them moving.

Second, why do all the employees go home as soon as play is done first day???? Apart from a small security detail everyone bails. Just because the game is done for the day doesn't mean the festivites have to be. Have a ginormous bonfire like there used to be. Have a massive weenie roast or something. More opportunity for charity involvement right there.

Third, parking. Kudos on the taxi service but it isn't always available. I have no suggestion for parking, but it just plain sucks sometimes.

Fourth, campsites. Some of them just plain suck. We got screwed last time i went because half of our campsite was unuseable because it had small tree all over. We couldn't fit enough tents, and some had to sleep in their cars.

Fifth, how about some awards or something. Refs spot good sportsmanship all the time. Someone helping another player off the field, escorting groups through firefights. Why not reward it. Or take some judgement and give away a marker or something.

I play frequently at HS and FB outdoor, have for a few years, and I have only seen things get better and better as time goes by. Yes HS is a smaller area, but I was there for last years Global Conquest and TWC and had a great time. Sure with that many people you will have some incidents, but overall both great games. This year the FPO at HS is a big change, but they have returned to the $ 20 al day fee, and you get free co2, so the FPO isn't that big a deal. The fireball paint is very good, and the red fill is not that bad for staining.

Futureball outdoor has made A LOT of improvements and is still BYOP and $ 15 all day play with a bunch of new field bunkers. With all of their area to play it is a great deal.

So I really don't understand why people think the FPO at HS is a big deal at $60 a case, that is an average price. The MMP(manufacturers minimum price) for Marbelizer is $57.50, so the price is in line with a standard "great" paint. Every field has their own way to make their money. If you don't like it, don't go. It is as simple as that.

This year I'll be going to Skirmish D-Day for the first time, as well as returning to Ok. D-Day and the TWC, so we'll see what each has to offer.

 

Play safe! Play often!

Now you see me..

Now you don't!

the big issue I have with FPO, is that usually when you charge for field paint entry is supposed to go down. Big games are still the same price.

Both are good fields.

I might volunteer my services as a ref since I have over a years experience. I should contact them, I could use the $$

Reffing is the most thanless job...

I've ahd to sacrifice my body so i could get kids out of bunkers where people were just unlaoding on them.

I would think that the Global Conquest would be posted up here rather than TWC. Pre-reg ended last night. I pre-regged at 10 pm.

Will Global Conquest be using the Ref's in play?
