    I actually agree with you wholeheartedly. The major issue with the sport is that the game casual players want to play, and the the game that tournament players play, are almost completely separate entities. There's nothing "wrong" with speedball, but it's painfully clear what a disastrous effect it has had.

    I'd personally love to see a tournament magfed scene. Tons of new players get really hyped up about the magfed stuff.

    I don't have pics. I made three of them, about 6 years before I had a smartphone lol. They were just panels that used rebar as simultaneous hinge pins and and anchors.

    This is really cool. I'd like to make my own field someday and seeing your progress is inspiring 😎 I'll be checking up on this thread to see how it goes for you.

    Create an atmosphere catering more to newbs and rec players. when I changed my focus from all types of players to rec players and a heavy emphasis on newbs, my customer pool grew faster and larger. People want to have fun not get dominated, bonus balled, yelled at or experience hit wiping every game. change the games up regularly or even let them have choice with presented options on games or what constitutes a hit. also pace of game and down time between games matters. and if youve got a team that honestly sucks, try to balance them out or give the winning team a handicap of some kind.

    I went with the air ups because i didnt want it to look like a junk yard lol, theres no local fields so hopfully im the local. Working on a place to put them, we get alot of wind in SE Idaho so i have my eye on a old gravel pit. Should help with wind and the need for excessive netting

    I was starting to build some portable panel bunkers for the lot in the country I lived on. I was using 2x2" boards to make frames, with panoflex stapled to one side. I had two rolls of the stuff at the time. I only built a few, but it was easy to make squares, rectangles, and triangles. I linked them together as needed using a couple of eyebolts on the edges of each, with a piece of rebar going through them into the ground. Pull that out, stack 'em in the truck bed.
    If you have a local field, get students to want to come out. College or high school, you can trade a free field fee and/or equipment rental for an "A" on a report card. If it's free, they'll come out. At that age, they won't come alone.
    I've played for 25 years, and I'll play at any field. If it's a bunch of newbies, I'll just play mech or pistol, and put myself at a level tgat keeps the challenge up.

    Pump is too finicky.

    I'm a CMO by day.

    Friction and learning curve matters. Pump is too much friction. Slow or very limited semi is best.

    Familiarity also matters. That's why magfed can work - people get it, despite the learning curve.

    And I LOVE playing full noise speedball. But I'm also happy to admit that the insane paint volume arms race and business model is 50% of why paintball is in the toilet (gaming is the other 50%). If we'd been 50rnd hoppers from day one, the sport would be in a much better place globally including the pro level. Just keeping it separate from newbies isn't enough. It needs to die - not because it hurts, but because the business model is broken. Xball was designed not so much to be a TV sport as to sell more paint vs 7s, so the game design was massively compromised. Kore etc. actively resist anything that proposes limiting paint use for a reason, because they're all about the short term return and DGAF about the sport itself.
