Now let say you where going to play a weekend scenario, and the entry fee includes a BOX of paint. But when you get there, the operator has decided that you will get your box by the pod fill. Now you've got 50 or so people digging into this communal box, chances of breaks in this box are high.

1. Would you be annoyed.
2. Do you think this is a good idea.
3. would you prefer to get you box of paint, and do with it what you will during the day. After all you've paid for it right?

Thoughts....

(ps. im assuming im posting this in the right place, couldn't think of a better place)

What? Was he high? They can at least give it to you buy the bag. I would probably tell them to TINKLE off and just buy my own damn paint.

I'd be mad. If he orders say 30 cases. now 10 people bought these. Thats an average of 3 cases a person. If everyone dips into this box that means people could get more paint than they paid for. Possibly making you get less. Also if my paint gets covered in a break, which wouldn't happen if i just had my box, i expect some fresh paint. After all, thats what i paid for. I would definetly want my own box.

plus when you get a box you know its 2000 rounds, when you fill per pod, you're not even sure that you're getting 160 rounds into the pod. Along with the fact that i may have a 160 round pod, but say its a 150...

Exactly. Even if your honest there's a good chance of you accidently going over.

That sounds like a scam, in the sense that the person running it knows that people are going to use more paint than they should and that someone might purchase more paint then... because they want to have fun.

I'd say just give me my case. Unless they have the pods all filled and give me my case thats already separated into pods. Free pods. But I doubt that. Communal sharing is for losers.

Ok I need some details, what field and what producer? That is complete bull, the registration price includes 1 case of paint, not a communal pot, its his responsibility to distribute the paint in order to make sure that all who paid for the game got what they paid for. This is entirely uncalled for. Who?

Figured, some field did that in the states he'd be closed by the end of the season. Good luck bud, I don't cross big bodies of water...

please tell me this is a hypothetical question. If i ever went to a game and the producer tried to pull something like that, I'd do things to him....very violent things...that would get me banned if I even started describing them.

That's total BS.
I'd just buy my own case and steal his pods.

Actually... I just thought of something.
I'd bring my own empty box. And ask for my pod by pod fills consecutively.
