Glad to have this option now. Can't wait to play in the mud again!

On a side note, can the field get a PA system of sorts? It was very confusing to figure out what teams were up next, if the flag was dirty or not, etc.

We have turf now so mud shouldn't be as big an issue. Also, we have added a schedule monitor to keep everyone on track. Not sure what you mean about the flag? I like the idea of a PA system though...

I never really much minded the mud. At the end of the day, the more mud you have on the more productive I felt haha. The PA isn't such a crazy idea either.

PA system isn't really needed since the scoreboard and walkie talkies of the reffs.

The turf makes things soo much better, wetting the turf down between points was key.

When we moved to RaceTo-3 instead of RaceTo-2 we could no longer do 15 teams. So we are at 12 now...

Wait, you have D5 capped at 6 teams? I'm not sure I understand that. Do you want new players filtering through the MILP system, or did you want to have D4 teams only and have it die off in a few years when they all find something more interesting to do and quit? I was at the last event, and it seemed that you were catering to the D3 players and trying to rush the D5 players out of the way. Saving paint for the D3 players and whatnot.

Have you fixed the air fill issues? Paint issues? Did you lay the turf out properly or is it still sitting on top of mud and puddles so that it soaks through anyways? I would fix those issues before spending money on a scoreboard that counts to....2. or 3.

To address the air issues: a new compressor and tanks were purchased and we had no problems once it was hooked up the weekend after the MiLP.

Regarding the paint: D3 also was restricted on what paint could be used, most teams shot spectrum all day. It was a pretty big surprise how quickly D4 and D5 shot through paint. No event prior to that had the paint consumption of the past event.

With all of that said, I know the guys that run the MiLP will address player feedback and always want to hear a response after playing the event. They have made a great deal of changes to Insane paintball in the last year.
