My name is David Jones and I own Ultimate Airsoft in Whitechapel in London. Thank you for your post and your valuable feedback. I am really sorry to hear that Blitz CQB did not live up to your expectations. I fully take on board what you have said especially your concerns regarding safety. Let me first point out that Airbourne Airsoft run their Blitz CQB from my site. In my experience with Kenny and his team, they run a really tight and professional game, and I'm sorry if they have fallen short in this occasion. I'm sure they will want to make it up to you if you would be up to giving them another chance. And that's FOC on me. Let me address some of your concerns.
I obviously have a chrono on site and am not sure why it is not being used. Rest assured, from this moment on all players will be required to chrono test their weapons upon entry to the game zones. As we speak, my team are setting up individual team chrono stations as you walk into each side of the field. This will cut down on the time to ensure maximum game time. 328ft/s make absolute sense on our site, not just for safety, but also for comfortable and enjoyable game play.
I will insist that at least one marshal be present in the game zone at all times. As I'm sure you are aware, the site has many blind spots and it's not going to be feasible to have eyes everywhere but you are absolutely right in that a marshal should be present in the field. The marshal booth is for controlling the game and not for safety observation.
We'll turn it down. Should only be there for atmospherics.
Come on, it's not all about the size (or so I keep telling my wife!). Yes, we're not the biggest CQB site. But that's what CQB is all about. Even the Epsom Tunnels can't give the kind of game play Ultimate Airsoft can give. There are a multitude of rooms and angles that can result in some awesome firefights. If there was enough cover. Leads me to the next point.
I completely take on board the remarks about the respawn area. My team will work with Kenny this week to work out how we can close down some of the kill zones and even up the game play from both sides. Hands up, this is my bad. We did identify this earlier and I will ensure this gets sorted this week.
Yes we are a little dearer than other sites. But to be fair, there are few (if any) sites so centrally located in any major city in the country, than Ultimate Airsoft. We have developed a dedicated Airsoft zone, designed by players, for players. We're not a bunch of pallets knocked together. I hope you would agree that it does have a certain wow factor as you walk in. We knew we were going to have to charge a little more but we have really tried to offer a proper cool immersive gaming experience in return.
I hope this helps relieve some of your grievances. Let me know if you'll let me make it up to you and get you back down.
