You won't need 2 lines. Your team plays every other game. We are giving the players what they wanted. Our Venues and staff with the race to format that Xball offers. I don't see how this is a bad thing. Make sure your team registers early because I know we are going to sell out in HB. See you guys on the BEACH......

Pump is not dead. We are looking at the capacity issue right now for another division.

I like the no coaching thought. But to keep it different than 7 man, leave the ramping. And what kind of layout would they use for their version of x-ball. I hope not the same layout as the 7-man fields

Hm, so it's like playing 5man at PSP events? That's pretty lame, IMO.

7-man race-to is going to drag on, players will shoot MORE paint making it MORE expensive than PSP
If they are going to copy the race-to format, they should at least keep it the same.

Seems like NPPL is trying to entice teams that have played PSP exclusively in the past to switch over.
you misquote shockwave trying to make him look dumb, but then you end up looking like an *** because he never said anything about 7 man millenium.. then agree with him in the next sentence.. cool.

i also don't think this is the right move, trying to please everyone is usually not the best idea.

Without bias as to which league I prefer, I really just wish, for the sake of the public's perception of this - a sport which most don't fully understand - that we'd lay out ONE major league with ONE set of rules. If there were this many leagues and variations within football, it would be too messy, as paintball is, and I'd be willing to bet significantly less popular.

We have people within our sport, who know everything about it and love it, that are still constantly at odds about it, in large part due to its lack of ability to make a freaking decision. Maybe we could all just chill out and try to work our sport into the public eye more professionally if we were able to just organize a standard set of rules for one professional league, rather than two major leagues and three, different, major formats.

I'd love to see the solitary, organized "NPL" on TV someday.

But I guess, for the time being, it DOES appeal to more players...

i think its safe to say that both leagues are going for the "kill shot" this year...each are probably going to have 5 events to almost force sponsors to choose...

Hopefully works out then.

I do love all the changes NPPL is doing though thus far.

I just don't see why you would switch from PSP xball. It has been running the format for years and is so well established in that niche of paintball. I refuse to be a guinea pig for a league that has never run this format before.

Quite the contrary. In adopting the race to format, the NPPL just confirmed that the PSP has the better format.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
