Its weird someone holds the flag during play and if hes shot someone from his team has to retrieve said flag.

I had a good chunk of skin missing the last time I dove on the turf........ I'm giving it one more shot though for WCPS, and possibly to try this format.

better than clay lol. turf is a bit sticky but with the sand underneath it, there is no way around it. none of us have ever had a problem with it, as long as your wearing gloves your fine. look forward to seeing you guys again but i strongly encourage everyone to come to the info meeting to see what all of this is about. allot of time has gone into this by allot of people and i think itl pan out great.

...

as with anything new...dont dismiss it until you try it. play one round first, then decide whether or not you like it.

the changes in the way the flag is used makes things very interesting, hard yet fast play. I went and watched the format and my first thought about the flag carrier was that it seemed impossible to score points, but with the change, it makes it hard but not impossible, which is where communication and strategy comes to play. this format brings back teamwork to paintball.

So again, dont brush off the format until after you try it...

Red Dot will be holding an info meeting on the 28th at the shop and then doing a demo at the field with in a week or so after that.

Not feeling the vibe. No snake, the field is very narrow, and the whole offense/defense thing does not seem logical to me.

the field size 100 by 180, and there can be a snake. again, dont dismiss it until you have a chance to play it.

Should be able to work that out no problem. Ill take some notes and post what I get.

The field. Used in the demo video looked really small to me too. But the actual dimensions aren't bad at all for 4 man.

why isnt paintball in the x-games or on tv anymore? because its to hard to film. to speratic, action all over the place. give everyone a focal point of attention (moving flag) and it becomes less difficult to film and give commentary.

the rules and format itself aren't that complicated at all, not much more than x ball. just think of it as a race to with offense and defense.

Really? get the flag to the other end, dont get shot, do it within time limit...not that hard.

The problem with this format is it does two things.

One, it encourages a team to sit and defend. If you don't have the flag, just sit and shoot and let time expire.

Two, this really ends up the same as most games anyway. To score a point, shoot the other team out.
