One of the most exciting things about paintball is the heart pounding adrenaline rush that you get from competing against your friends. A lot of us are fans of popular on-line multi-player First Person Shooter games. In these games you are dropped into shoes of a soldier in simulated combat environments. While fun and entertaining, FPS lack the total immersion that some are looking for. So for those players the Paintball genre of MILSIM or Military SIMulation is just what they are looking for to maximize their paintball experience. Tippmann markers are legendary for their ability to be customized by the player into one of many weapons used by today's and yesterday’s Soldiers.

The Windy City Classic will be a Big Game style format with several fields turned into one. There will be two large teams, that will have a command center and battle for control of areas of the field for points. The game will be hours long. If you get eliminated, you just go back to your command center to the insertion area to come back into the game. The insertion gates will open every 10 minutes. At the end of the game, we will have the final battle called “City Wars.” The battle will be between our famous fields of the Town of Bedlam and Armageddon. To score points, each team will have to control the flag station on the hill between the two fields. The final battle is one hour of the craziest and most intense paintball on the planet!
The Red Team will be led by Jon “LJ” Woodley of Houston Heat. Houston Heat is currently in first place of the professional division of the PSP. His XO (executive officer) will be Living Legends winning general , D.J. “Honu” Fox, of Team Ohana PB.
The Blue Team will be led by Dan Colby of Immortal Air. Dan Colby is a legend in the paintball industry helping to bring compressed air to the masses under a previous company called Air America. He has been an integral part of the paintball industry for decades. His XO (executive officer) will be the famous Mike Phillips of TechPB.
If you have never played a Big Game or a Scenario Game, the Windy City Classic is a great way to check out the format, make new friends, and most of all, to have a great time. We hope to see you all there!
