Maybe its time to take a look in the mirror.
Why do you think all the teams from the cincy area make the hour and a half drive to XCape every Sunday instead of your field? I'm just telling it like it is, people don't feel welcome there. You can blame it on everyone else but the bottom line is that's the way its going to stay until the leadership of fuse adjusts its own attitude.
I'm not sure who you are, so I don't know what your experience is, and I have no clue what you're talking about with a policy of who gets to play and who doesn't; there is no such policy. When the field is up the field is up... whether you play on it or not is your choice.
I've asked myself about Xcape vs. Cabin Creek a lot actually and I think there are a few factors to that:
#1. Xcape has been catering exclusively to the tournament crowd for the better part of a decade now. The atmosphere is pretty chill and there are always people to play. Cabin Creek only has an airball field because we bought one to play on; tournament play isn't the focus of the business so it doesn't get promoted as much.
#2. Xcape sells paint much cheaper. There are also no entry or air fees. I think this is the biggest factor as we are all cheap bastards.
#3. We grind. There is a reason that teams like Asylum and Trade My Gun ask us to come scrimmage them; they know they will get a workout. Frankly I feel like many of the teams around here don't want to practice that way so they go somewhere where they know they won't get marched off the field point after point. Xcape is more relaxed and lets those players spend a bit more time playing and less time getting shot. (Note: this is not a jab at anyone's playing ability, I'm just trying to differentiate between the 'tone' of the two fields: for example, you will never see jakesak and crew drinking beers and having Sunday Funday at Cabin Creek)
