Prestige,

We attended a meeting this past weekend with the powers that be at Giant and they are doing what they can to address paint issues.

First, keep in mind they don't make the paint. They try to get it as fresh as possible within the confines of paintball production. They are doing three things this year in order to bring quality paint for the players.

First, they are taking steps to do all they can to make sure the batch of paint they get is as fresh as possible. I won't go into detail as it's not my place.

Second, they are adding two more grades of paint. The same three levels will be offered as last year at the same price points. However, there will be two more grades of paint above the Evil that was offered last year and these two tears will be priced accordingly. (See the fliers above...paint prices are there.)

Third, Giant is trying to secure a refridgerated trailer for paint storage to keep the paint cool and fresh throughout the weekend. Players will be able to pick up paint throughout the weekend so that the paint they're not using can be stored in this trailer safe and cool. So far this last step hadn't been finalized but if they do this it will be the first time I've seen it at a game.

Giant has definately heard the complaints about event paint though and is doing something to try and resolve the issue.

This was posted on the Decay of Nations Facebook page:

If you or your team are down to help us, we will have our final scenario teams round table meeting Monday, Aug 19th @6:00pm at HSP.

Wanted: Advanced scenario players to be XO’s OR Cardinals for Decay of Nations.

Description for the role of the XO.
Their responsibility will include the following: To assist their Generals in whatever capacity, such as giving out missions, leading missions, motivating players in a positive manner, helping out with role playing, mentoring new players in the way of scenario paintball and clarifying rules.
Note: cannot sign off on missions and cannot be a Cardinal.

Description for the role of the Cardinal.
Cardinals are essentially on field “Player Refs.” In that capacity, the Cardinal must know Giant Scenario rules, will do paint checks on both sides and sign off on mission cards on both sides. Must be stand up, honorable players that are willing to put the integrity of the game above all else.
Note: Cannot be an XO.

If you have what it takes to be an XO or a Cardinal, contact paul@giantsportz.com, gio@giantsportz.com or Brian K Kosola on facebook and let them know what side you will be playing on, what paintball team you are on (if applicable) and what position you are interested in.

I'm sure that will be ok. The past couple of years that they have done multiple XO's, some like to be in the field, others like to stay back. You can do everything listed in the description except for leading missions, nothing wrong with that

Thanks so much for the info, it is clear that there is more work into making this event more enjoyable for everyone. Hopefully this year it isn't too hot for the paint!

I sent Brian a PM on Facebook. We'll see if he can use me.

Prestige, most certainly they have put in a lot to make the paint a non-issue this year. From what they were talking about, if you order a bunch of paint you don't have to take possession of it all at once. This way, the paint you don't need right at that moment can stay in their refridgerated trailer. At least that's the current plan.

Just passing the word on...Decay needs ExOs and Cardinals (player reds). If you are a team capt, look into being an ExO. If you are a trust worthy player looking to make everyone's gaming experience the best it can, look into being a Cardinal. You can PM me here, or Brian Kosola on Facebook.
You can always pest'r the helloutof Gadget to (he loves the attention)

So what was clarified at the team meeting last night with Gio was the following:
  • Clarification on the use of rubber and paint-filled grenades.
  • Clarification on how tanks, PUG's and Mech's are eliminated.
  • And that Giant is working to have a specially marked paint for this event that will ensure freshness.

Robotech and/or Jazzious can chime in if I missed anything or incorrect on anything.

Thanks Robotech.

Just one more FYI for everyone, when the rules for this event are cleaned up and finalized, I have been told that they will be posted up here as well as on the Decay of Nations website ... whenever that get's done.

They are pretty much standard rules, but will be having those clarified rules that are not normally used on rec play.

The first 3 are Giant Branded paint, then GI4 and GI5 are Draxxus/GI Sportz paint.

This is an Event Paint Only scenario. It's not about using that type of paint, it's about using the paint that is sold at the event. The paint they are ordering is going to have a specific color fill. If you bring in outside paint, it probably won't have this fill. I don't know how it is usually handled with Giant...and I'll be asking...but at most events I've been to if you're hit by non-event paint...you're not out.

There will be extra paint if you don't pre-order. First two brands will be Giant Specific. Evil will now be the mid grade (last year that was your high end) GI 4 Star and GI 5 Star will be the two upper brands.

HOWEVER

If you're thinking about buying paint locally know that Giant is ordering a special fill color for all their brands and it is not the typical fill color that comes in these balls otherwise. So a GI 4 Star paint you buy in the local store is not the same as what you'll have at this event fill color wise.

no worries I understand about the special fill or shell color for the event. I'm just trying to figure out if I want to spend the $$ on the evil. If the mid grade is going to be private label marbalizer or premium or something else.
