Thanks Shawn + Cyndi

As a player I would just like to say thanks to the promoters!! This event was ran much better then the last two, and I hope the next two will be even better ( maybe with lights ). perhaps a thread can be started for ideas to make the next event better.

Thanks again

The GPL is a very solid regional event that is growing.

I must say I am very impressed that this event is definitely growing with the players in mind as far as making changes to improve the event each time.

Anymore now I am basically keeping a journal of the progressiveness of this east coast event series.

The Infamy Referees are a rare commodity to this event. And they arent even officially trained refs but know how to ref an event, better than some of the NPPL refs in my assessment. And consistant too.

My only thing is definitely need more experienced and reliable ref staff that can do the job efficiently, not kids with A.D.D that barely have a clue and are so easily intimidated by players. Although the players should be respecting the refs, we all know the deal with that and how that can be.

But thats my unbiased viewpoint.

I agree with paintballtigger. This event was great except for finals. We played our last 2 games in the pitch black. I guess at some point in the middle of the last game the owner of dels came out and yelled at the refs telling them to stop the game. I think lights would be a good idea...or making the event run 2 days maybe. It will get darker earlier at the next event.

everything was much better than i have seen in the past... but still the problems with the refs.... i clearly saw someone get hit at least 3 times going into the dorito... the 2 players screaming to check him b/c he is hit...... it took 30 seconds for 1 ref to go over to pull him... and 30 secs is a long time....

to all players: if you are hit in an obvious place.. especially more than once pull your self out or you will be called for playing on... plain and simple!

other than that... awesome time....just mad about no 7 man........ imhoping to see more and better things out of event #5

you show me where it says to keep playing if it is an obvious hit numerous times?

so your telling me... if i was playing against u.. and you hit me in my mask 2 times... in the enter of my goggs... i should keep shooting and playinf till a ref comes over and pulls me?.... dont think so....

yes a ref should always be watching.. but if you are clearly shot and you know it..... its just the right thing to do... you dont want to be known as a cheater!

Lightbulb its a litle bit of both ref judgement call and rules

i ref the gpl and in my experience understanding the rules of obvious hits and all. i go by aftermath trail of a hit. if i go to a player and see a hit on his hopper if i dont see any affected areas on his goggles. and i know its in an area of the hopper that would not have trailed into the mask then i may be lean towards more of a single elimination than a 1 for 1. but knuckles head reg, (since thats where most people hold their guns), inside of gun sometimes even tank depending where. i might penalize because i know as a player those areas hit do happen without some sort of splash in someway shape or form. so its a matter of judgment call. and since you can feel balls hitting you in leg or body most times even when from a distance. those areas closer to the face are more scrutinzed than any where else.

Let me guess, you are one of the guys that complains about bad reffing all the time. It is painfully obvious that you have never truely reffed a tourny. In the sun. In 90 degree heat. All day. Few breaks. For 12 hours. For not enough pay (my opinion). For people that refuse to respect your effort.
What you just stated is just that, playing on, a 1 for 1 penality.

edit: squeaky! Your still my hero!
