eeerrrr

i hope not cause L.A. swat is such a sweet name every body will steal it...

examples.... griff from red nrg said he loved the name l.a. swat so much he was going to name his next gerbil that

and

i remember last year when some1 told me 2xteme tried to change their name to l.a. swat cause it was the coolest.. then the ironmen at the beging of the psp season this year did... i guess when you have the coolest name its tough cause everyone wants it....

thats just what you have to deal with when you have the coolest paintball team name in the universe.

teams with out a name should try the name viper strike echo 4.... cause its a cool one too.

CFOA DSO 5-Man, look at the team list; Affliction comes up twice. This was totally unintentional I hope, as the D3 squad has been using that moniker since Cup of last year and the lesser squad finished second to last as Rookies or Beginner or whatever, and had never played an event before. All it did was create confusion.

The team name is not leathal or LA SWAT, and we have registered for the Queen City Masters and paid the entry fee and as of now there is not a team registered for that event with our same name..But when looking for a friends team standing in the PBC 3 man series I noticed a team with our same name, we had no knowadge of this team prior to naming our team. DANG IT!

So this is why I am asking if there are any rules against two teams with the same name I know it might cause a lot of confusion if both teams with the same name entered a tourney in the same division as far as scoring goes, and if we decide to change our name is it possible to do so after you have already registered for an event?

Thank you for any help on this subject.

So i don't really know what they are doing.
well i know that Ky Lethal have register before La. Lethal and we will make the correction on this and use LA. Lethal, sorry for the confusion guys, i just did that so it will save us a spot.

You can change your team name even you have register it, but as long as you have not payed yet. Once you pay your Team is lock in unless you talk to Mr. Larry or Josh about the situation and they will resolve everything for you........

You can change your team team anytime. You could have a different team name each event, but never have to register different teams.

It is very difficult for an event to run having two teams with the same name, obviously. Scheduling, etc, it puts a huge pain on the people running it. If you want to change your teams name without losing the record on APPA you can email chris raehl or larry and explain the situation, it can be changed. ie: hershy heat to carolina heat, Raiden X to LA Sound

It's not even that hard. No emailing Required. Just log into your team profile, and you'll see this:


Change what's circled in red the the picture^ and Tada! Team name changed until you change it again. Theres no hassle at all.

APPA makes NO EFFORT to only have one team with a given name. As far as APPA is concerned, any team can use any name at any time. The only thing we do do is kick out an error if you try and register a new team in the same state as an existing team with the exact same team name (down to the character), but that's just to prevent people from accidentally signing up the same team twice.
