The field and the players are a mixed bag of good and bad. The field it's self is pretty nice, compatible with many age ranges. We played a 5vs5 on a smaller portion and while not completely balanced, the field was fun to play on. With plenty of obstacles, buildings, and cover.
The players were good, for the most part. My guys I teach to be fair, honest, and always do the more honorable thing. If you get hit, your out. If you think you got hit and you can't get a paint check, your out. I don't expect all players to hold to this, but when I send paint down and 3 balls splat easily visible on a guy, I would hope for a good sportsman like conduct. It seemed the only times on the "really good" players there that I would hit and get out was a direct mask lens shot. I even hit a guy in the side, shoulder, and side head, and he just kept on trucking for the rest of the game with marks there. I don't find wasting paint fun, or feeling like I'm just a moving, shooting target dummy. It was very frustrating, and calling for a paint check on the players in question would have been very difficult.
Another problem, being that even vets of the game and I believe of the field have hot heads on them from accidents from new guys I brought and am trying to show the game.
As for guidelines, fields I've played on require chrono. They generally make wiping paint after you are out a staple motion too. As for chrono, they had one, and forgot to use it. My team made sure to use it, but other players did not. I won't complain too much on that, but the fact that the chrono was not working correctly was a pain in making sure my guys weren't shooting too hot. (gotta get a pocket chrono).
As for balls per second, there was also no limit. To me a fair game makes all players have a little fun by limiting bps so players from any price range can still have a chance. I guess this isn't a big area to worry about, I didn't have much problem, but checking bps and setting a limit is nicer to have, just my preference.
Paint marks from hits were hardly wiped, which becomes a problem to me. If you wipe paint after you're hit and get back to the spawn point, paint checks can be accurate and people can tell when fresh paint is on. Not too many people were wiping paint until the end of the game (minus mask hits).
I would recommend more solid guidelines and instructions to help refs and players play a better, more accurate game. The field, the equipment, the paint it's self all play a factor in paintball, but players and refs make and break the game completely. As for this field, I would love to go back and play do to the cost of playing and that I can pick my own paint. But I probably won't and couldn't recommend it to anyone new, and veterans that I know of the sport would get hot headed from the stuff that I did see happening from what I'm assuming were regulars. That is the main problem for my playing.
My conclusion and summary being this field is a good field, with a nice layout. There are good players, and the price is amazing. I would recommend this, but at the same time I wouldn't. I put no for the simple fact that a complete stranger, I would not recommend playing here to, but someone I know, I would tell the pro's and cons, and say I would give it another shot. Playing once doesn't tell all there is to tell, but first impressions are everything.
I know my review is winded and lengthy, and my first (but not last) of places I've played, but this is the one that prompted me to write about my experience. It wasn't all bad, in fact a lot of the guys there were awesome and very experienced on tactical play and knowing their field. But with players that (i don't want to say cheat) can't be honest with even the most obvious of hits, and no full regulations on how hot guns are shooting and such, this field is not somewhere I'd introduce anyone to the game.
