I know that he is one of the more knowledgeable staff there. Call in the afternoon and ask for him (unless he's at the LA County Fair)
Too bad I didn't catch your reply before I called this morning. Just to double check I had asked if the mid grade paint was indeed 2000 rounds a case. They were telling me that it was still 1600 even after I mentioned on the flyer it said it was 2000 for the event. I don't think the general office number knows there are 5 grades of paint for Decay, either. I'll try to give Mr. Williams a call later today if I get a chance. Totally forgot to ask about the parking/camping... got distracted after asking my paint question lol.

Thanks again, Gadget.

I can't believe they are gonna pull the 1,600 case crap again!!!! That is a actually pretty upsetting knowing that i paid $175 for 5 cases of 2000!!! This is honestly enough to turn people away!!!It won't deter me but it may for some people....

I can't remember her name I should have written it down. But I've spoken with her quite a few times making group reservations and she's very friendly. I just don't think Giant properly informed all of their staff on the details.

Their cheapest paint has always been 1600 rounds. thats the SC brand paint. and the $45 a case is actually the mid grade at 2000 rounds. At least thats how it is during regular games.I look at Decay as a business for Gio and his partners. They do need to make money some how. Their margins increase on the cheapest paint by selling it at 1600 rounds. This is why they offer so many paint choices this year. you can spend as much as $65 a case or as little as $35. Just be glad they offer options in all pricing categories.

Sad thing is, those are the players that are ignorant about the dangers of those energy drinks or they think that they have it under control, but still suffer from the effects. Plus, I'm sure that they are not informed to hydrate around a week in advance to prevent heat injuries and take it for granted.

From what I know, Giant does make timely announcements, especially when it's hot, to constantly drink water. I think they will also have cooling tents near the insertion points as well (don't quote me on that tho lol)

IF they run it like Tet back in June (and I don't know why they wouldn't), They provided water in the CPs and had a couple stations out on the field where you could hydrate also. I hope they do it again this year. I know last year at decay they had the cooling tents with water in them too.

Did anyone notice the link to download the Waiver on the decayofnations.com site is dead? Are they using the general waiver for Giant parks because i have a vip card and i assume i dont need a special waiver for Decay of Nations Specifically? Just wondering

While I don't know for certain, in past years they have only used the standard waiver, nothing Decay specific.

You mean "artificial" ivory, right, Robo? You don't want to break any international treaties on the import and sale of illegal substances, do you? ;-)
