What is the CEF:

The Commonwealth is an international scenario paintball team born at Oklahoma D-Day, run by a dedicated volunteer staff of administration, competing in games run world-wide.

Return

Where is the CEF:

We gather every year in Oklahoma for the DDAY game at full strength, and usually compete world-wide in a variety of other events and competitions. We have competed en force at events in Belgium, France, the UK, Croatia, Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand, to name a few.

Return

How does the CEF operate:

We have a dedicated team of volunteer personnel who work together on common goals and individual projects throughout the year, communicating via email, skype or Facebook to make things happen. Onsite, we have meetings and general info sessions as well as field walks, training sessions and operational seminars to keep everyone in the loop.

Return

Why play for the CEF:

The CEF is the most organized and largest paintball team in the entire world, period. No matter what game we play at, we consistently roll in with the biggest crew and our campsite is impossible to miss. Our organization, dedication and resourcing allows our players to perform to the utmost of their capacity, fulfilling their greatest potential as players because they have the best team standing behind them one hundred percent. Oh, and we have tanks!

Return

When does the CEF play:

All year round we compete in various events, see our forum and schedule for sanctioned events near you.

What is the policy for cigarettes, drugs, alcohol and general behavior on the Commonwealth campsite? What are the penalty for breaking any of these rules?

The most important thing to remember is that most paintball scenarios are family-oriented events. We want everybody to have fun, and that includes the numerous parents and children we have in our ranks. Cigarettes are OK, just remember to respect the non-smokers around you and don't leave butts laying everywhere-pitch them into the firepit or garbage can when you're done. Drugs are not allowed under any circumstances. Alcohol is OK for persons of age, and must be kept in an opaque container and on your campsite (Or, if you're visiting another camp, on theirs-no wandering around the field or the vendor area with an open drink.)

Return

What is the Commonwealth policy on cheating (Wiping, playing on, ect.)?

Zero tolerance. You cheat, you're out. It's that simple. We do not tolerate anything less than sportsmanlike and honorable conduct on and off the field.

My Username or Password doesn't work on the CEF website.

During our switch over to the new website, the password section of the database did not appear to transfer entirely.
If you are having this problem, try clicking on "Forgot Login?".
Then select "Lost Password", and enter your username and email below.
When you click on "Send Username/Password" it should send you a new one in an email. Make sure to check your spambox if you don't receive the email within a few minutes.

How do I change my Username or Password?

Your username and password controls your profile access. You cannot change your username (without creating a new one), but you can regularly change your password.
To do this, make sure you are in the "Home" section of the site.
Below the chatbox and the login module, you will find the User Menu.
In that menu you will click Edit Profile - your profile options will come up.
To change your password, click on the Contact Info tab.
Enter your new password into the password fields and press the Update button.
From that point on, your old password will no longer be operational.

Return

What should I pack for my paintball roadtrip?

The CEF packing list is not a strict requirement but more an exhaustive list of potential items one may need. Please refer to this list while thinking of your own packing needs, or creating your own list to use for any events. See packing list here: Link
