True enough... but if there is no good reason to compete.. why do it? Other than for hubris sake.
as Atreyu says it is not like Hosts get paid... for the most part the only ones making money are the paintball places. And they don't give a crap about us.
If there was money to be made I understand competition.. but there is not.. so competition is self defeating.. is works against us not for us.
it is a simple thing... plan ahead, put your game in the calendar. and if there is one on the weekend you had planned.. choose a different date.
This way when your game comes up.. everyone who plays regular will be at your game, plus all the folks that only play at your games plus all the ones who only go to the field that you host at.
Every field would then have a big game every month rather than 2 small ones.
As most people only play once a month ... it will service the needs ofthe community to advantage.
That's a good point, about not having good reason to compete, because the hosts aren't making money.....except for one. You are the owner of your field/CQB school/whatever you want to call it, so IMO, you are being biased against competition, because, although WE as players, benifit from compteition, YOU benifit from the lack thereof.
Most of the rest of what I wanted to add, has already been said above, so I won't repeat it.
