Cheating doesn't happen in the NPPL? Teams don't use cheater boards or bouncy guns to achieve higher rates of fire than the average person can honestly reach without some sort of assistance? I don't mean any offense, but I honestly believe the NPPL is allowing cheating by simply allowing everyone to use uncapped semi.
Also, there aren't any teams use hand signals or other means of communicating on the sidelines in the NPPL either? Sure it's not allowed, but you honestly think there aren't teams doing it? As much as I hate coaching, I have learned to accept it... the PSP at least recognizes that these are two things you can't really control with some arbitrary rules.
Don't get me wrong, I have always been against ramping and coaching even. But, honestly, from playing similar formats (admittedly no nationals) I personally believe that allowing capped ramping and coaching allows for the most even playing field possible. There is no easy/nor financially cheap way to control cheater or "electronically assisted" guns. Same goes for preventing spectators or teams having people pretending to be spectators signal/let other people know where players are at in the NPPL.
Then again, I haven't played in either league... so I wouldn't know if it's actually that big of an issue or not. Just simply stating my opinions.
