I know nothing of this or the person, but if it went down the way it is stated I would not be impressed.

But really a place where you can loosen your tie... We'll see what happens. I figure that with the right set of people to begin with, we could have a good forum.

Otherwise it could go right down the drain...

So we'll see.

HOw do you measure how much a person has done for a sport v. something like this?

HOw do you quantify the attention and media the field owner wanted to generate by asking a certain person to be a general v. the effect of them not showing up?

too bad. This seems more like big scale paintball politics, which just sucks for all parties involved.

Hope everyone can recover from this earth shattering travesty

Doesn't seem like big scale politics. By the looks of the field it looks like a humble little field not like CPX or anything.

im gonna have to disagree.

If a promoter is getting paid 50% of the gate for example why should he expect his generals to promote the event and recruit players.. If they do, great - but to expect them to is stupid. Generals normally get comped entry.. maybe a case... but thats it.

Furthermore I would hope that a producer would work to pick and balance sides to help make the event fun for all - and not a landslide. .. and with this in mind recruiting players by a general might be a bit counter productive if they might (50/50) end up on the other side.

I'de like to hear the general-in-question's take on why he walked... $20 says it was legit.

they made it pretty clear who it was.

anyway, i thought generals were only supposed to strategize within the game, ergo, not responsible for marketing, because you know, that's the field's job.

the general's a player of that game after all, leaving is kinda bad but why fault him for not advertising?

I think the point was that this individual (the general) had means to advertise using his social media pages and the point was that he did not and dropped the ball.
