New Snake Bunkers for the PSP for 2012 - This changes everything!

PSP will be changing bunkers for 2012. Here's the scoop:

"For the past 10 years, the Snake on an Sup'AirBall field has been pretty much the same. The Giant Beams, much wider and taller than their Hyperball predecessors, have been keeping front players safe from cross field lanes. Large knuckles, such as Cakes, Baby Bricks even Temples, protecting them from getting shot by their mirrors.
This Era has ended. The Snake will be technical again.

The 2012 season brings the Snake back to life with the addition of 2 new bunkers:
A shorter and more narrow version of the Giant Beam, the "Snake Beam" and a L shaped bunker, the "Elbow", will be the new components of the spectator side of the field.
Though there is still plenty of space to hide behind, tighter play and better timing will be required."

Elbow bunker:


Snake Beam bunker:






"On the PSP or the Millennium field, those 2012 bunkers not only bring a renewed interest on playing the Snake but also bring 2 extra bunkers to the set. The 6 Giant Beams from the previous seasons are replaced by 4 Snake Beams and 4 Elbows, which will increase the options for field layouts' designs.

The combination of Snake Beams and Elbows also frees up bunkers normally used as knuckles. Those extra bunkers will allow for shorter moves elsewhere on the field and a wider range of play options."

New beam, in front of old beam, in front of cake:


Close to the top, despite being on your stomach


No room to put your legs under you


Gives you an idea of how small the elbow is, and how much lower in the centre of it

Every two years would help standardize things a bit more, just hope if there are any new bunkers they aren't as bad as the mini X's

Mini X's from awhile back? or the mini A's that we have now? Either way I love both of them.

I did love the old Mini-X's. I can't see them coming back though. They always seemed to have issues staying inflated.

ya stop changing the bunkers up, costs to much to the fields and hurts them more then helps the sport. I think every three to four years would be best but every two years is good to

Every 2 years would be great. Replacing the bunkers that are on the 4-6 year old cycle. This way we would be replacing bunkers that are at or near the end of their lives.

the mini X's were the best to play, but the worst to maintain. I too would love to see every two years.

MINI CARWASH

though we'll likely see something they already make, the NPPL cubes, or a mini spike, implemented in a way they works with the PSP's gameplay

I do also agree that every two years would be right to have field changes.

the players dont like the field always changing. I hate those freakin mini A's. I just wish they would stick to the way things are or elimante the mini a's and gow ith mini x's.

From a field standpoint you guys are making these field shell out tons of cash just to keep up with the newest things which is stupid. Dont be suprised if you guys dont sell many of these upgrade kits

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
