HB layout..what!???

I for one, am not looking to playing an entire event on this single layout:








It looks as if they just threw some bunkers on a field in whatever formation they landed in, inflated them and said lets play! I dont see any strategy to this layout. out of all the layouts I have seen/ played this may be the worst. I can tell you already that this layout is going to be a sit and shoot field.. There is almost no way to break past the 50. and what happened to a real snake?? I just think our voices should be heard!

Now dont get me wrong Im not trying to bash on the Nppl. I love the Nppl and its format, I just dont want to see my favorite event of the year ruined due to this.

I agree this is one of the worst layouts I have seen in awhile, it needs to be changed or HB is not going to be the event that everyone wants to see.

"I for one, am not looking to playing an entire event on this single layout:"

i miss when Nppl had MORE than a single layout at a event. would this still be a issue if there was more than one layout for the event?

pretty bad when you got pro players requesting a change in the layout, seems nppl needs to take notice and fix this issue..

I played it today and it wasn't bad. Kinda goofy at first, but once you play a couple games on it, it feels alright.

Now 4 of 4 that played it and shared have liked it. Why do people voice opinions on a layout that they haven't played? I don't understand paintballers now matter how hard I try.

Edit: One bad thing about the layout is the 7 giant beams. I know a lot of fields that only have 6.

Ah crap, I thought that center one on the snake side was a brick. Interesting.

I like the layout personally. Think about it for a second... Not many lanes so it gives the opportunity for 7v7 right off the hop. Plenty of opportunity to get up the field instead of having someone sit in the back with 15 pods on their back just pooring paint. Plus like someone said above... The better team is going to win. So set the field layout up at your local paintball facility, start your practises, find those shots. Stop acting like a bunch of whining babies. NPPL made it like that.. Deal with it. It is a challanging field, its not suppose to be easy. Doesn't allow people to just walk up that dorito side and shoot cross field or just power down the snake and pop up outta nowhere. I for one am looking forward to playing this layout... See everyone down there..
