It is true they were supposed to make the game more playable for the masses, rather than 5'5" tall guys who weight 140 pounds lol. They were supposed to help the tall and fat guys out with more and bigger bunkers. Guess they gave up on that when the figured how much more the fields would cost and how much longer they'd take to blow up. I'd still love to see it though. Lose the crawling bunkers period and the game will speed right up!!! Guys will be flying at you from every angle. Might be a reffing nightmare but sure would be fun. I imagine paint sales would suffer though, so I don't see that happening.

I'd play a field with a couple of those slides on it no problem! LOL. I'm not cleaning it at the end of the day though........

These little elbows make playing the snake complete crap. It is undoubtedly the hardest bunker to stay alive in even on your stomach. Too low, too small, too cumbersome and imposing. I HATE THESE NEW SNAKE BUNKERS!

There is one positive thing to be said. In a way it changes the game up a bit. Maybe having an amazing snake player isn't enough to win anymore. You'll need more of a team effort. That's not all too bad. Unless you're the amazing snake player who's losing some face lol.

I think by "cumbersome" he's referring to the fact that, unless you're a midget contortionist, it's tough to move around behind one of the beams with out getting shot, or ending up with your legs stuck behind your head.

Imposing... I'm thinking it has to do with the fact that players don't want to go there anymore. It's sort of nice when someone other than the afore mentioned midget contortionist can fill the snake should the first guy get knocked out.

I've played them a bit, you have to play a lot tighter than the old ones. Also the lower nature of them further restricts who can go there. I'm not a big guy by any stretch and I have some issues playing these snakes without getting my face blown off. I usually leave it to someone younger and more flexible. The Elbows...I guess they eliminate some "cracks" in the snake, which is nice. It would be nicer if they were really playable. Such as it is, I've seen them used more as a useless knuckle to force the player out towards the wire as he tries to move up. Good news for corner players I s'pose.

My argument is that psp said that they were adding bigger bunkers in order to compensate for larger people as well. They did the opposite. Idc
im a bigger dude not like massive or anything, and i have 0 problems with the size of any of the bunkers....my big *** can still fit in a small cake

Damn. There's no good reason to shrink the cans that far. #disappointment...again.

But from a field owner's perspective, PSP needs to cool it with field updates. I like the every 2 years idea. Keeps things fresh and is a lot less demanding on an owner's wallet.

Chop the X in half, size down the snakes, change the bunkers multiple times. I know I'm missing plenty of other key changes as well.. Interesting..

6ft cans means some people could shoot OT in them. hhmmmm

I mostly play back and mid, its easier to shoot people out of the new snakes but I still want the old ones back. I do like how they've gotten more creative with snake designs instead of the same basic snake all the time.

Yeah dude, look at 2009/2010 for PSP chicago. It still can be accomplished with the old snakes.

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.
