i enjoyed my time untill the last game. i believe it was called escort. at first we had a good team and i was sure we would do pretty good. then the ref took 3 of our players and put them on the other team stacking that team more. red team was deffinetly going to lose this one. we were waiting for the game to start. when the ref runs around the corner and goes oh the game just started. no count down. no warning. the enemy team had gotten a false start and where already right outside our spawn before we were able to really move out. from then on it got worse. the blue team move closer to our spawn keeping us pinned in the office. one threw a grenade and got most of the red team out but the decided to keep shooting even though 7 or 8 people were yelling "HIT". then to top it all off atleast one maybe two of the blue teams team members went full auto and lit my friend jon up. it was him and his brothers first time there and im sure jons not wanting to come back after this. when enforcing the rules you guys really need to knock off the double standard and hold everyone equaly acountable. noobs and vets shouldnt matter
i did some what enjoy my time because i met some good friends there but if the vet players get a "get out of jail free" card and other players dont its not worth it. the ref said that night he wouldnt take any bull shit from anyone but yet rules were still broken and no action was taken. in a way im kind of disapointed i thought my first CQB fight would be a little better. hope you read this even though it will probably get deleted.

Don't let this stop you from playing, like i said its a great CQB place and run by some cool guys who are more than willing to help you.

As for your buddy being shot on full auto, that is not ok by any means and we have and idea of who it was and will definitely be handling that issue, so it doesn't happen again. even if a person is not calling hits, it doesn't give you the right to flip your weapon on full auto and blast them. that is not only a violation of the rules, but causes harm to others.
again I apologize for the confusion, but i am not just a player trying to be a dick, i am staff member trying to keep the honesty, and integrity in the game so everyone has a good time.

friday was my first time with my friends jon and his brother alex. but bryce (the guy you yelled at) has been playing with me for a while. the only time he doesnt call hit is if he doesnt feel the hit. he doesnt lie and always plays fair. me and him have been playing for a while and i know he plays fair. it wasnt just him though i watch mike yell at another kid the kid turned around and said "F*** this i quit" and i asked him why he got yelled at and he said he didnt know he didnt get hit and wasnt blind firing. im willing to give it another try just i dont want me and bryce to experience a bad game again. we can be good team mates and good friends and we learn quickly. i didnt want to come on here and trash the citadel i just wanted a better explanation and understanding of what happened and and why it seem like the rule were being broken. bryce claims he hit mike multiple times and saw him flinch and then was never hit at all. he was not hit into the elbow and has no mark welts or bruises to show he got hit. and no he was not duppled up with long sleeve shirts so it would of let a mark. just seems strange to get in someones face about it. i dont understand why people would be saying my group was not calling there hits. maybe alex and jon didnt but me and bryce always called our hits even if i was shot by the player i just got out i still would call hit. my group as far as me and bryce are not cheaters. we player paintball and experienced alot of cheating and arguing but have still always called our hits. one last thing is i can understand if you yell at a player for not calling there hits but swearing and cursing at them doesnt get there attention and gets them to learn that just makes them angry and want to get you back for it. i dont know im not a ref i just didnt expect to have my team accused of not callin our hit when we were over honest and would always call our hits weather we knew we were hit or where unsure about it. just hope this can be resolved and our next visit will be better
School vacation games tend to be really hectic because there are so many people there and many of them are new. Don't be discouraged by all the conflicts there were at your first game, try going on a day after this week is over and it will definitely be more controlled and more fun.

As far as hit calling complaints, two things... first adrenaline affects not only pain threshold but judgement. You may not feel a hit or two that only hit fabric and not skin behind it, and second sometimes people all jacked up make poor decisions they wouldn't normally do even in another game situation. There is a difference between "i was panicked and made a bad decision, my bad" and being a dirty dirty cheater. One is not intentional the other isn't.
As far as "yelling" goes. The field is noisy, there is gunfire and people talking and running around. Trying to have a calm talk with someone isn't going to happen on the field and it shouldn't be taken personally unless someone is up in your face screaming and pointing fingers in your face. If this happens call a ref and someone is going to sit down or go home.
Lastly on ref calls. Like football refs don't always have the right angle or a clear view. We don't have instant replay. Sometimes the calls work against you, sometimes for you. It is what it is and don't read too much into it. The refs have a hard job and do the best they can.
I don't know who hung up on you but I will find out because that is unacceptable.

im new thought so everything i say probably is false right?
That's not what I meant at all, I should have worded this differently. The point I was trying to make was it seems like you just got unlucky in your first game. Sometimes there are conflicts and trust me I understand how things can heat up really fast on the field. One problem leads to the next and as more and more people get frustrated the more confusion and tension there is. All I'm trying to say is give it another try, the Citadel can be really fun and the staff does their best to resolve all the conflicts and keep everyone happy even if it doesn't work out 100% of the time.
