We’s gonna cut a little close to the bone this week, boys and girls. By talking about value. Oh, I know, this is paintball and value has nothing to do with it--except when it does. We spend ridiculous amounts of time and money playing this silly game but somewhere in the love/hate equation value (or our individual perceptions of value) tips the scale on when enough is enough or too much is really too much, dammit.
How much are you willing to pay to play Xball? (Or Race 2, blah blah blah) Because there are a ton of variables involved in this I’m gonna set the game’s parameters and you’re gonna vote on the value you’re willing to assign it. Let’s begin with D2 Race2-5. As it is today. Today’s rules, today’s clock, etc. What I’m looking for is a sense of price sensitivity. (Sure there’s lots of other costs for each player involved and you ought to take them into account but what I want to know is when D2 Race2-5 hits the wall.) Currently $2600 is the minimum entry and $2900 is the maximum.
