True Ballers are looking for a big season with NPPL, don't take it away. Too much fun and competition to take it out.

Don't take pump out.
These were the more exciting games to watch.

I'm with JT on this one.

I was scheming with some Hawaiians to put in a team for HB. But at this point, even if they put it back in, I'm not convinced it's any better than hitting up a BRPL event.

Truth. I hope NPPL sees all of the people who are shocked by this and realize that it was a mistake.

My own personal opinions.

Still think that pump division isnt the Black sheep of the NPPL? Its the easiest money/division to run. The price difference for the 2011 season???Was that the kiss on the way out?

What I dont understand is why you would sign a petition to give this league your money? Instead I will invest my money in other leagues, series and events. Here are some links that might interest some of you if you feel the same. If you do not share my opinion then enjoy the 2012 NPPL season and all it has to offer. If anyone would want to coordinate what events you will make it to this year then there is a thread started for that already. I hope the PSP reads this thread and can pick up where the NPPL left off. The one PSP pump event that was held was half the cost and just as much fun if not more so. The format was definatly different but a great time.

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3713764
Im sure there will be new postings/changes in this since this thread has been started.

UWL - The absolute most fun I have had playing a tournament in a long time thanks to Tom Cole. When my team played we played with all pumps with the exception of two or three. Even with a team of all pumps you would do more than hold your own and have a blast doing it.

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3708415
An airball series held by none other than BLITZ. The feedback on these events has been amazing and if bieng on a vid playing against the best pump teams is what you seek... The camera is rolling at every event they hold... Check the thread.

In the end I hope all the pump teams that have an interest in playing this year can end up in ONE spot this year to have an unforgettable pump event for 2012.
I've gotta agree with you JT, especially about the events that Blitz puts on. I had never played a Race-To format before, and we had so much fun! I didn't even care that we came in dead last in that event (Blitz 2011 event 2). We had a blast, and learned a lot. Well, "learned a lot" may be a bit of an understatement, since we learned so much that we took first at NPPL Vegas last month!

Another great league is David Justin's Woodsball Tournament League (WTL). It's limited paint (2 pods per player, with empty hopper), with the exception of one heavy gunner who has as much paint as he can carry (and can't share it) per team. This lends itself to a team of pumps with one electro paint slinger.

We had planned on pre-paying for all 4 stateside NPPL events for 2012, since it seems like we've finally got our act together as a team, but this looks like a bummer now. At least Xtreme Paintball Park is still going to hold pump events, right? (Hint) You know FrontKick will be there to shoot at Greif, since we were robbed of our chance to play you guys in the finals here in Vegas!

I'm trying to think positive thoughts that there will be some top-notch pump events for 2012.

NPPL is a business, not a charity. I love pump as much as the next guy, but the teams didn't come out. You can say bring back pump, but it's not worth it for them if only 5 teams or less come out.

Pump players could have saved the pump division by playing it. They didn't unfortunately. It's a shame that pump players are so damn fickle because it's fun to play pump, but it seems damn near impossible to get pump teams to show up in numbers large enough to keep a pump division going.

i kinda agree but at least put pump on like probation type of thing for 2012 if teams don't show up as much as they would like then take it out for 2013 don't just take it out all of a sudden with no warning

Just sent in my comment. Flood this thing with interest in pump and it can just as easily be added back to the schedule.

Still looking on how to fit us into the schedule, and still looking for a sponsor for the pumps.
They said they hope to have an announcement around the first of the year....I called them last Wednesday, at least the lady on the phone was nice!
