Event #2 pics or video?

anybody got any pics or video from the event today?












and i would like to add a sidenote that the refs on field 4 absolutely sucked and were never consistent with pulling people for having their barrel not below thier waist. our guy got pulled for it when we played at least 2 teams that had people with their guns above their waist and the refs did nothing. nobody would even come onto the field to check anybody... and when i was shooting i saw a ref flailing his arms and like 10 seconds later i looked over to realize he was calling me out. he couldn't even walk onto the field to pull me. worst reffing ever. ik our team will never be back again



and honestly what tournament that boasts to be "the biggest tournament in the midwest" makes the teams play on a small *** 3-man field? we dont pay a ton of money and stay overnight in hotels to play 3-man fields.

field did suck but you cant call a series horrible b/c a couple refs didn't catch people with their guns below their waist and one that didnt feel it necessary to come over to you to tell you that you were out.

If you have a problem with it bump up to D2, they play on the Xball field all day.

and get absolutely creamed. no thank you. its the torunament series job to make sure their refs are consistant. this same crap happened to us the first event also.

they are pulling in in upwards of $18,000 in ONE day for a tournament. the least they could do would be to train the refs at a psp certification clinic or something. i mean where does that $18,000 go? of course they did just get some new xball bunkers but in no way does that total $18,000. plus they make that much money every event! there are around 6 events. its rediculous

That shocktech field was sweet... it was like wide open, you could win every game w/ 5 guns up off the break.

We had one (IMO) ****ty call, which I believe prevented us from making the semi-finals. It was down to 2v1 and one of our players apparently already had a hit on his hopper which he didn't know about. He ran up the field and shot the last guy (who called himself out), the refs proceeded to pull both our players for playing on, but then also put the other player *back in* and let him grab and cap the flag.

Other than that, the playing and reffing was great. It didn't rain either (which is was supposed to). Field 4 wasn't great, especially looking at it at first, but playing on it was good enough.

Shut up with calling the reffing bad. Deal with it. It's paintball. If you are soo good, you should be shooting all 5 people anyways so quick that it shouldn't matter if a reff missed a call.

Watching from the sidelines I saw this happen. Your teammate was hit on the hopper (left side) away from the refs view on the right. The ref all the way acroos on the left side saw the hit tried yelling to take him out but he tried to run through and bunker a kid. He did bunker him and traded out with a hit before bunkering him. thats a 1 for 1. And if I recall you won that game still even with the 1 for 1. If this was the incident on field #2.

I could be wrong but that sure sounds like the 1 for 1 that i saw.

Honestly, I don't remember what field it was on (2 or 3) though I'm sure I could ask a teammate which it was (pretty sure it was #2 though). Anyway, my teammate was in the back center and ran up the middle to the X. By this time, I was already eliminated and on my way to the deadbox, which was to his right so I didn't see any hits on him. So I'll have to go by what you're saying.

Anyway, I don't understand why a ref on the sideline would yell to a ref across the field to a ref on the other side to pull the player, when they're the same distance from the player... I mean, why not just go do it yourself instead? Why not just pull them to begin with so there aren't instances like this? I suppose ref zones play into it, but with 3 players on the field, I think it could've been taken care of better (if what you're describing was the case); on the other hand, my memory of the situation is foggy and I wasn't in the refs place.

I'm sure the 1 for 1 was the right call to make, that's not an issue at all. It was the other player being called out, the other player calling *himself* out, then telling him he's still in and can go grab / cap the flag that kinda gets to me.

We did lose that game, I believe our score was 16 for eliminating 4 players and theirs was 50 something. The judges *did* score incorrectly though, they had the points swapped for the teams; we took the sheet up to the scoring table and got it sorted out afterwards though

I also liked the fact that you couldn't watch the games from the sidelines on fields 2 & 3 (made seeing players crossfield much easier) as well as enforcing the deadboxes.

All in all, a great day. Nice weather, great reffing, great teams
