the rest just drinking tea.
My mate shot my other friend in the face once. Wise move.
I am going again in august and am very much looking forward to it. I had bruises all over me after the last time.
Each hour had one game in it followed by a rest period (roughly) - might have been a half hour.
There was food and drinks in between.
The actual games are good fun, capture the flag type affairs but when I went it was very hot and I got EXTREMELY sweaty.
People cheat. I don't know what you can say to someone who's over the age of 12 and feels the need to cheat at this sort of thing but it's really annoying.
It's fairly expensive. You have to buy ammo and then people run out of money and drop out earlier on and by the last game you either have fuck all or you're trying to get rid of all your ammo because you bought too much.
I wouldn't ever bother to do it again but I also had more fun doing it than I expected.
the teams were broadly divided into northerners and southerners. the southerners cheated, the northerners were fat.
Sneaked up on two enemy combatants from behind and they raised their guns in surrender but I proceeded to shoot them anyway from a range of about 2 feet. Got one of them in the head. They were NOT happy and I got told off. I don't take no prisoners.
Central Command have yet to inform me that the game is over so I'm posting this from the New Forest.
Not your courage 'balls' like, it's only paintball. But those paintballs are expensive. Especially if you buy them from a foreign paintball afternoon vendor on the high street.
Last time I played I was shot by traitors in teh bunker, it was sad like a film
It's a couple hours
Only shoot when you know you can't miss. Too many players make the mistake of spraying their balls all over the place (lol) and they don't even hit anyone. Sometimes you have to provide covering fire for team mates but they're usually expendable anyway so save your ammo and watch them march to their deaths.
Got paint on my hands and it stinks of fish, about to get a shower in a minute like. All in all it was reasonably entertaining but I still wanted it to end, glad it's over, wouldn't do again though, 5/10.
