I never quite understood why FAP is so popular. in 5 states of playing, it's the worst field I've ever been to.

Fort Adobe and cowtown both have good tourney feilds, I believe(correct me if im wrong) FAP is based on PSP bunkers and Cowtown was NPPL bunkers, although I havent played in about 5 months so things could have changed.

Not sure whats FAPs rec fields are like but the desert field at cowtown is pretty good for a change of pace when you want to just have some fun. I also like how you can BYOP at cowtown even though their field paint prices are very reasonable.

FAP is BYOP too and caters to 5man.
Cowtown caters to 7man, but AZ is a 5man dominated state so most play at FAP.

I miss having somewhere centrally located, both FAP and Cowtown are far drives compared to what 23 was.

Wild West works in a pinch, though.

You're probably remembering an old FAP. The newer one is superb.

But yes, Wild West is great, and Joe is a guy

Maybe I'll have to try going there again. I haven't been there in like 9 months because I was so underwhelmed by it.

You're right, WW is a way nicer field

Not to take anything away from Joe, I've known the guy for years, but to say his field is nicer than FAP is a laughing joke.

Where 1 field is always deflated so you have to wait 30 minutes because of the crowds to get a game of airball or play 20 v 20 games. I've been there 3 times since moving to Arizona, and every time only 1 airball field was inflated, and every time it was either play massive games or wait forever to play. I'd rather go to Wild West where they have 2 games running at once, their recball field isn't complete garbage, so you can actually enjoy playing on it, and you can go from game to game with just enough time to run and get air and restock your pods without waiting or having to play with triple the amount of players on airball as it's fun with.

No, it's got everything to do with the fact that I can go there and play. The recball field at FAP was garbage, and they only have ever had 1 airball field blown up when I went, so it was just no fun to wait and wait or play such huge games that airball fields are simply too small for. Just no fun. Do they actually blow up both airball fields and play normal games without eternal waiting now?
