Flash,
Like I said earlier, constructive criticism is always welcomed. I posted in response to the first line of your post.. "If you need 2 months to practice a field you shouldn't be playing paintball". My comments were simply to give examples of the good it can bring to new and young teams and players and it is not necessary for despairing remarks. I hope that field layouts do not dictate what tournaments you play as you stated you would have probably signed your team up if the MAO layout was being used. If you plan on playing PSP and want to get practice on the layout, I completely understand. Unfortunately due to the fact that the PSP event is so close to the MAPL event there will be teams that can't play both. Best of luck to you and your team in whatever league you compete in this year. And I am by no means a sensitive gal, but would love to have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and constructive criticisms face to face. Feel free to come down to the park and I will buy lunch and we can talk.

Crazy, I know.

Word I understand your argument now.

I was in the wrong and I apologize. The MAPL is a great league and I wish it nothing but success.
