GT Paintball Series - Event 2 of 3 - July 16th, 2005

Reported by: Andrew Saunders

The whole day ran smooth, not one hiccup. Good turnout, nice weather. The field layout was something new, no center back bunker. Most people complained but it made for some interesting games as it was pointless to try and sweet spot from the middle. I personally liked it, save the paint spraying fields for the Atlantics where a fast gun and eight pods is the norm. But why was the X laying down? Why lord? I think everyone was looking forward to playing that since the start of the season. Instead it was laying down on the 50 against the tape so it could only be played on one side. The snake on the opposite side was a pivotal position. Whomever owned the snake usually won the game.

Something funny happened this event. In the game between Shock ECO and Heavy Metal, Trevor blasted the 'sideline' refs. Fact is if you want to pretend to be part of the game, stand within a few feet of the field with your goggles on and be the sixth player, then expect to be lit. Enjoy this video anyway.


Rookie Division - Finals
  Team  AP  BCP  TTS  TOR   Total / 300
  Apocalypse Purple (AP)     100  95  90  285 (1st)
  BC Predators (BCP)  0     10  95  105 (4th)
  Tsunami (TS)  10  95     0  105 (3rd)
  Torsion (TOR)  20  10  100     130 (2nd)


Novice Division - Finals
  Team  S51  ECO  FG  SM   Total / 300
  Spikes 5150 (S51)     15  97  100  212 (2nd)
  Shock ECO (ECO)  91     97  100  288 (1st)
  Fuel Gold (FG)  5  5     25  35 (3rd)
  Shock Metal (SM)  0  0  25     25 (4th)


Shock ECO won every game except for one. The final game for first came down to Spikes 5150 vs Shock ECO with two wins each, in fact, with the exact same score (197). Shock ECO won it, again. Now they have a perfect 100 seed points going into the last game so it's likely they'll win it all (whatever 'all' is this season?). The novice division in the finals was decided by a tie breaker (although I believe this was contrary to the rules).

The reffing was great again, thanks to Strict Union. A couple crazy calls this event but it was a crazy day.


  INFRASTRUCTURE  4 / 5 
  SCHEDULING  4 / 5 
  CATERING  3.5 / 5 
  FIELDS  4 / 5 
  MARSHALING  4 / 5 
  ATMOSPHERE  4.5 / 5 


At the end of the day I felt unfulfilled. This event was lacking something, everybody felt it, everybody was on edge, there was a void, but I just couldn't put my finger on it.
