Reffing at cup

How does everyone feel about the quality of reffing at cup this year?

I personally thought it was the worst reffing I have ever experienced at a PSP event. I totally understand that there are going to be some grey area calls, that is paintball. What I am talking about it straight up laziness or disregard for the rules.

I played on the 10 man field and PSP 2 field and the reffing was fine on both fields. There did need to be more refs on the field for 10 man, but other than that, the gentlemen and ladies running those fields were professional and fair.

What do you know, the generic "My team didn't win and I blame it on the refs!" thread that pops up after EVERY EVENT no matter the league....

I saw several bad calls on empire field. Pure laziness and lack of experience. And no didn't play I watched. The fields I played on had good reffing for the most part

Couple of absolute BS calls or disregard and blatant unknowing of the rules on the PSP1.

The inconsistency/ bias was really my only concern. I thought the reffing was great as far as hard work and paint checking was good, but some teams got some special love while others got majors for the Exact same thing. I had a great time and am going to train harder to not let the deciding factor of my tournament be the refs.

I felt the reffing was fine, they were just very inconsistent, especially with penalties. One day there were no penalties and the next majors flying left and right. I also realize that more fields means Tim needs to pull in more "rookie" refs to help so obviously the quality might not be the best compared to a smaller event with more veteran refs on one field. It still wasnt bad enough to complain about it though. I don't feel the ref's ever screwed our team over or anything like that.

I agree in the inconsistency part when it came to penaltys but the reffing was good in all the fields we played.

Referring was good for us. Just had one complaint with the head ref not knowing the rules of 5 man and giving us false information before a point.

i thought the referring was fair on all parts. I played and had to work on multiply fields and all the refs made calls fair for both teams. Dont complain about majors and minors, don't cheat and you wont get penalties

I saw some really bad calls and I saw some refs working their tails off. I think the idea of perfect reffing is impossible to achieve. I never saw anything that would have changed the outcome of a game. Standing on the sidelines relaxed and watching a game you are going to see stuff a busy ref might not, you also will miss tons of stuff that a ref does see. It happens. We had two calls at this tournament that we truly felt were incorrect calls, but that's paintball, its part of the game, and neither call changed whether we won or not. We walked off the field and moved on. Reffing sucks and they don't get enough credit for how crappy of a job they have. They make correct calls and no one says a word, they miss a hit on a guy running to the corner and he slides on it and people lose their **** over it. Props to the WC refs

I was psp 3 Saturday and dye on Sunday. No a single issue with refs on either field. I think they did a good job. They are the reason we get to play.If they weren't there then the game wouldn't be where it's at today.

Agreed, but sometimes they do a bad job? You've NEVER had a ****ty ref?

I think they did great this event, but sometimes they're not so good. You can't say you've never complained about a ref.

Saw a guy wipe a hit off his hopper right in front of the ref. Another guy got shot on the side of the mask and kept playing (same ref). Another ref had to come in and pull that player out. That was the only "bad" reffing i saw. Other than that everything went well!

Psp field 1 right? On the lense near the earpieces and the ref didn't pull him, a cross field ref had to run over and pull him. no major or anything.

Reffing seemed consistent, fair, and representative of the rules. There are always poor, missed, or questionable calls.. I didn't really see any. Reffing staff was very professional every time I interacted with them. We didn't win, but that's because we are dumb.

I was on DYE field and PE field.
