The difference between League and regular Laser Tag is that you get to experience Laser Tag as part of an organised 5 person team. Your team will develop good communication and technical skills throughout the 10 week season to become a cohesive unit by finals time.
Laserzone League caters for all skill levels. The Sunshine Coast is home to many friendly, experienced national and international players who help administer the league and guide new players. You’ll learn the tricks of the trade from the best in the business!
We utilise a unique handicapping system that automatically grades players on performance and then gives each team a % handicap on their team scores based upon the experience level of the players on the team. The system has proven successful in giving all teams a chance no matter what experience level they might be.
One of the things that makes Laser Tag different to other sports is that each game has 3 teams; Red, Blue and Green. Each team has 5 players and a home base. Each player can destroy the enemy bases once each.
Bases are worth 3001 points each, compared to only 150 points for a tag on another player. This creates a very tactical game where players will try to defend their home base while simultaneously attempting to destroy their opposition bases.
Another difference between regular laser tag and league are the extra rules players have to abide by during the game. An example of one of the additional rules is called base evacuation. Each base is marked by fluorescent lines on the floor. Players must be active while inside the base area. If you are in an evacuation area and are tagged, you must leave the area and wait until you reactivate before re-entering.
The game format used in League is different from standard games. It includes the following settings:
8 second deactivation
2 shots per second
The limited lives and shots are another feature of league play. When a player runs out of lives and/or shots, they must make their way to a reload station in order to recharge.
DO I NEED TO BRING A TEAM OR CAN I JOIN BY MYSELF?
You are welcome to join by yourself, with a friend or 2, or as a full team of 5. Our experiences has shown that full teams of 5 who intend to play together develop quicker by splitting up in their first season or 2, so that they can be shown the ropes by a couple of experienced players, and then re-forming once they are a little more experienced.
IS IT DIFFICULT TO PLAY?
With Laser League there is a learning curve, but it is pretty short. Within 4 weeks you will be able to hold your own, know which positions to take, and be starting to get a handle on some of the communication skills.
The tournament administrators and senior players are available throughout the season and offer special training to show new players all the tricks and techniques of the game. If you are keen to improve your game, there will be plenty of opportunities!
