District 10


It’s taken just 19 days into the New Year and Shoreline are delighted to announce the first stop in the 2011 paintball season is the hotly anticipated Super 6/1: District 10 weekend at Skirmish Paintball Nottingham.

What is expected to be the largest scenario day in the UK, this fantastic event stretches over two days, each day packed with exciting events which aren’t to be missed!

Saturday

Saturday will be brimming full with activities and events. Although ‘ballers do not have to attend on Saturday, it is included in the player pack and is a fantastic way to have a look around the traders stalls, have access to FREE technical support and why not attend the pre-event meet up and have a few drinks with like-minded ‘ballers? A great way to kick-back and relax in preparation to what will be one of the best scenario events in the UK! Shoreline will also be running 2, two-hour paintball games, each with a fun theme and it is expected these will be closely contended!

Sunday

And now the details you’ve all been waiting for!

The full details for the game including the game map, scoring periods and all other relevant information will be released before the event in the form of a Player Pack.
As with most Shoreline events, the game itself will be multi-layered. There will be time based missions to complete, territory based missions and secret missions throughout the event. Players can choose to involve themselves on a highly tactical and strategic basis, or players can just walk onto the field and shoot up the opposition – either is good and there should be plenty in the game to keep the hardcore tactical scenario player amused as well as the guys who just love to run and gun.
The artifacts hidden around the field will be based on Alien Technology and Cat Food. If you’ve not seen the film, then the cat food reference will be lost on you – get down to BlockBuster and rent the movie!
Each faction will be allocated a HQ tent which will contain a computer, 42 inch LCD screen and network connection. Throughout the game, special missions will be transmitted to each factions HQ terminal including intel, maps and points details. Each faction will need to convert this intel into ‘points on the ground’ so good communications will be key.

The game will be open to any level of player, so if you’ve never played a Big Scenario Game before, don’t worry! It may seem complicated now, but just rock up with your gun and a smile on your face and you’ll fit right in. Shoreline games are renowned for being the safest and the best organised in the UK – that’s why we have players from all over the world travel to play at our games. So no matter what your experience level, you’ll be more than welcome!

We’ve been asked on numerous occasion’s by newcomers about how best to win a paintball game. Now, this comes with practice, but we’ve compiled a little ‘cheat sheet’ which provides good reading before you come paintballing with us!

Written up by a marshals at our Nottingham Paintball venue, here is a run down on things to remember…

The key to squad sports is that they need teamwork, skill, and preparation. These aspects of team sports are very often seen in games like basketball, football and baseball thereby creating a worthwhile paintball squad is no exception. To make a winning team, every participant ought to be a good squad as well as individual player and it all begins during the training sessions where players learn how to play on the offense as well as on the defense side.

War games are the replica of the real-life conditions and after every game players must critically analyze their performances. This is how players can review and rectify the faults they made so that in future they play more efficiently as a squad. After some practice with the home squad, it is always fruitful to invite another team to join the practice session, since the players can know some other techniques and better their own skill sets.

There are several ways to play a paintball game: You can end the match by capturing the other squad’s flag or a time limit can be set so that whoever has the most players left wins. The match can also be played till such times that all the squad members of a particular team are ousted. Setting a time limit to the game is good for the practice sessions, since this makes every participant put in his best efforts to score goals for the team. One strategy to play paintball is to create a defense team who act as protectors of the fort while the balance players go on playing on the offensive.

Developing sharp-shooting skills is an important part of training and players ought to efficiently hit mobile as well as frozen targets. With ammo being restricted, it is important that players shoot targets, which are clearly visible rather than shooting any random target, which only results in wastage of ammo.

Sneakiness is a great property to have for winning a paintball game so when a team creeps in opposition soil unnoticed they can launch a sudden attack before the other squad can gather their counterattack. So the skill to move stealthily can increase your chances of winning the match. Using hand signs, or sounds are a great way to communicate during a paintball match as this would never allow the opposing squad to ever know what your team is preparation to do next, and this could be a path leading to winning. The other team will not be able to expose your plans so by using all of these drills and scenarios in each time the team practices, they will be ready to challenge anyone in the league. In reality it is very easy to win in paintball, provided the team members have practiced sufficiently and know just what is expected of them during the match.

So here you have it, taken straight from the horses mouth!


Occasionally we have the odd celebrity popping in, and last weekend Olly Murs dropped by with a Stag Party for a full day of paintball!

The chirpy Essex lad wowed the judges and audience with his performance on the X Factor in 2009, went through to Simon’s House in Los Angeles, then into the finals.

Great to see him on Sunday..in a more relaxed atmosphere! and having a ball with his mates! He definitely gets a Yes from us 🙂
