Oh god... that was my day today. Shot 2 bags in a whole day, and 1 of them was in a single game where I basically decided to play like a back and basically lane the whole game. Coincidentally that was the only game of the day we won. The worst part was the group that made up the majority of the walk-ons I played with was a bunch of older tournament ballers with some friends who had never played before. In honor of this occasion they brought out the automags and stuff to make sure the renters among them didn't feel totally outclassed. Fair enough. These guys decided to take charge every time it came to split up and make teams. They'd make it look fair, even numbers, a young kid, a renter or two on each team, . What they failed to ever account for was the complete skill mis-match between themselves and the rest of the people. Sure, that 14 year old kid has an Ego 11 that his mom bought him, but I became well aware that idea of crossing the field up is completely foreign to him, as is any sense of communication. Meanwhile we're getting absolutely schooled round after round and these guys continually talk **** about how they're using mags and some of the others (myself included) are using electros and that the teams don't seem fair. Really dude? I was going to switch to my prostock after a few rounds, but these jerks changed my mind. And of course, all of this is on top of everything you described... except for the credit card thing, my field actually takes plastic!

I've never come across a field in which refs were actively trying to get players to hurry up and play. It seems like every field is okay with letting people sit for an hour "reloading their pods."

Move to a better area that isn't infested with time wasting fools. At the field I play at we take just like 5 mins between games unless everyone has air and paint. In which case we just flip it and keep playing

My field always flips games even if they run long. But when teams are there practicing its tough to get field time.

Normally its not so bad. We usually play 2, flip after 1 then take 15-20 min or so between when it gets going. Today was really bad because there weren't that many walk-ons who weren't renters, so it took a long time to get enough people to get it going regularly.

I've been known to loan renters pods or some of my caddies so they can load faster especialy if they are there often. This summer has been slow for me with paintball though

I've done that in the past, but it wouldn't have helped because they were dividing up renter walk-ons from people with their own gear. Generally a good practice, but just not enough of us today.

My field usually runs two games per field. They'll run the first game, flip sides, run the second game. There is usually a 5-10 minute break between games for pods, air, or whatever, and then next field is announced. After the announcement, it's about 5 minutes to next game while the refs even up teams. It's pretty efficient. If you miss the call, you miss out for that game. No rushing required.

Our regulars are good to play with the renters usually. We have some dick players that the other regs usually take care of by shooting the crap outta them. Especially if we see them wipe a hit. I've actually shot a team mate if I see him wipe a hit from a renter

It is for the most part a woodsball field, there are too many people to run 5 man games. So, they built a hyperball field big enough to handle ~15v15 without it feeling cramped, probably maxes around 20v20. It's a pretty big speedball field. Then there is a woodsball which is your standard mix-and-match trees and stuff to play in. Then there is a fort which truly is huge, 2 stories and quite large. There are a lot of bunkers outside the fort and attack/defend games are quite intense.

Throughout the day I want to say you can expect to have with a minimum of 50 people out there, however the number of birthday parties varies however there is a lot of difficult games to be had.

So, the games are big and intense, however it can be quite a long process to round 50 people up. So, I understand it at that field. However, I have noticed quite a few "tourney ballers" who seem to take FOREVER to load up.

There was. **** was pretty funny throughout. A lot of sexual humor such as the trees doggy styling the girl when she fell down. Things like that.
