i want to go play some scenario and stuff but everywhere says that field paint is required. i think this is a huge ripoff because i have a specific paint that works well for me and ive already bought it and now i have to buy theirs just to play there? what do you guys think???

the thing i dont like is how expensive it is for paint at fields. i buy wpn paint for $37 and i get a really good deal on that kind of stuff and then you go to the field and its like $55 for low grade stuff, thats just crazy and you would think that as many people play, they could lower those prices because the field admission price should cover alot, with so many people coming.

Paint prices are how fields cover a lot of their costs and also how they get money to keep their fields in good condition and even expand and improve. I know it kinda sucks but think of it as funding for better fields.

FPO is what keeps fields in business. Don't want to buy our Field paint?....good, get ready for exorbitant field fees, then you can bring whatever.


And no....we BARELY turn a profit on paint as it is.


Get ready btw, paint just went up 10-15 a case dealer price.

KEE just upped their dealer paint prices... so paint at the field will be going up too.

Field paint only is a fact of life. You can't go to the movie theater with your own popcorn, nor can you take your own hot dogs to the ball game... It is the way it is. However, I really hate it when places jack up their prices just for an event as some do. That is just price gouging.

hahaha. buyt he field paint, support the field. field very rarely stock crappy paint on purpose.
True, owners get very annoyed when the paint they've bought doesn't work well as it pisses off their customers.

yeah i like my field they sell 3 types of paint cheap $35 (like no brand ive seen) medium paint (draxxus i believe) and for like 55-60 depending on how business is they sell evil

but *****ing about a field trying to run a business is pointless. they are just trying to make ends meet just like you man and thats how they do it

No one ever said this was a cheap sport.
understatement of the year. I just sold all my old gear and bought new/er stuff.

among the list:
Ego6
rake trigger
hybrid grips
urban camo ccu
45/45 tank
urban camo jt team pants
empire shells & internals
magna drive upgrade
reballs
other random crap

the only thing that sucks is I sold my jersey, and I really shouldnt have...
