: After having my belongings stolen from the parking lot and talking to the other people who were robbed I have to ask Why Miami.

I'm not sure, but I think the decision to hold the game in Miami was made to honor the memory of Maurice Gibb in his adopted home town


The police told me they have so many robberies they have to take reports by the phone only cause they dont have enough officers to send to the scene. If your going to hold a tournament in a marshmallowhole like Miami you should post a warning for the players and fans.Having poor security on thursday didnt help either.It was a great tournament and very well done ,but WHY MIAMI

For the most part, security was reasonably good. The Miami-Dade County Sheriff's Office had a very visible presence on the site, and the DAK security people were on the gates and in the parking lots.

Unfortunately, there are some thieves that are resourceful and clever. I heard reports of a thief that used a master remote to unlock several vehicles, and steal a number of high end guns.

I'm going to assume that the affected vehicles were rented, and that being the case, the first place I'd look, would be employees of the rental agency. They would probably have, or could probably get access to, master remotes to unlock vehicles and vehicle trunks, especially if the car rental agency has a fleet of vehicles from the same manufacturer.

Also, security is not going to bother anyone that looks like they belong. If the thief is wearing a paintball jersey, and walks up to a vehicle like he owns it, he is not going to attract the attention of the security people.

In all probability, the thief knew your vehicle, knew what it had in it, and knew how to get at it without attracting attention.
