Take whatever the entry fee is and plan on shooting 6 cases on paint in prelims.

just to give you an idea of what my last 3 man cost.

We each bought 2 cases of evil for $60 a piece... lasted the whole tourny...(they had cheaper paint for $50... I think it was empire custom blend)

Entry was $25 a person ($75 a team)

I think we spend another 20-30 a piece for gas / food / drink and random stuff....

the main random card is how much paint you shoot... paintball field owners are not stupid... if they allow ramping... your going to shoot a lot more paint. Also it depends on how far you go... prelims / semi's / finals

Entry Fee: Divide it by how many players you have on roster
Paint: dpending on your teams style of play and if you are ramping / semi auto plan to shoot a case EACH minimum. I always tell my players to plan to shoot 3 cases each for EVERY tournament and have enough reserve for 2-3 more cases in case the layout plays slow long points.
It also depends on how many teams you play and how many games against each team.

Then of course figure in travel (gas/hotel/food) if the tournament is not local.

Then figure in any emergency expenses if team members don't have multiple gear setups (stuff does break, remember Murphy's law)

Budgeting for food, gas, entry, and 2-3 cases per player is a healthy estimate. Word of advice: Always pay for better paint. If standard paint is mid-grade and you can pay $10-$20 per case more on high end paint (Ultra Evil, DXS Silver/Gold, etc) you may actually save money because you'll bounce people less often. If you can't afford that, buy one case of the expensive paint and use it in your hoppers off the break.
