So I watched all 3 days of the flooding, er I mean games.

People who played the actual snake beams got shot in the pack quite often, cant say for sure if they got shot more often than not but it was a decent amount of times. For the most part, like others said, the players didn't play the snake itself, they played the other bunkers mixed into the snake.

and snakesniped is right, even though he worded it wrong, he wasn't meaning straight hopping over the bunkers when standing up, that is easy with the old and new. He meant how the players were frog hopping frrom a crouched position over the bunkers. That would be more difficult from those positions with taller snake bunkers and players did it decently often to get behind the inside can or whatever it was they had on the inside of the snake setup.

Of course this event may not have been the best, as players had to watch the river running through the snake so their guns didn't dip into it and this may have cause them to be a bit higher than normal which exposed their pack to the people on the D side.

from my perspective the beams are exclusive
for (really low) crawling, you're not supposed
to play them anymore, which is a big change.

on the matter of forcing new bunkers on field
owners, agreed. but on the other hand, the 2
fields in my area that acquired them are jam
packed every weekend, when the fields that
did not are very much empty every sunday..

honestly hated it. I watched paintball from all divisons at galveston with my own eyes from D4- pro and I hated it. Not a fan at all of the changes and I feel that it slowed the game down. I hate what the psp is doing to this sport

There is no doubt that there are fields that can handle buying new bunkers. But there are many that can not, and those are the fields that are home to a huge populous of us ballers.

i dont see why people are complaining about how this will affect field owners. They only need to buy a couple of new bunkers for the season. And I bet the majoirty of fields will not have to buy these snake bunkers unless they hold tournaments on the regular or they hold psp events....which is not the majority of fields in America

correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe those only come in a set.
I don't think you can purchase them separately or just a snake

i'm also pretty sure that you can no longer purchase the old-style beams from Sup-air, at least that's what i remember from talking with my field owner.

Or if they have tournament teams that practice regularly for events. My team loves our home field but they don't stay updated on the newest bunkers. So when tournament time comes around, for 3-4 weeks, we are away from the home field at a competitors so we can play on the layout. Us not being there, takes business away from them. Not only are we gone but the teams and players that come play against us. I can only imagine the losses a field would have if several teams were in the area and they all left to practice a layout somewhere else. It's true a field doesn't need a bunker update if they aren't hosting events, but you better believe they are gonna want one if they have players that compete.

the new elbow bunker seems likes the only interesting one. I think it would be the most interesting bunker to watch out of this set.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
