ROF chip questions...

My team will have 8 players(for 7 man format), but sounds like we will be receiving 7 chips... do we need to purchase and 8th? if so, will it be $60 as stated in another thread?

Also, say for a 7 man team, a gun goes down and they dont have an extra gun with a chip installed and now only have 6 guns with chips, do they play a player down? borrow a gun?

this. one of my back ups is a 2k4 RL timmy. This is a huge question that has been posted multiple times yet the NPPL has continued to ignore it. so please, answer this question. If it is not known, then tell us and have a virtue rep come in and explain it to us

Call virtue .... I did they were more than helpful and happy to answer questions... If needed I can also google and post the number

Or

Just have someone in your pit power up the gun without air and work the trigger while the back up gun is used on the field. Simple fix.

They say on the ROF-fi description page that it works with all guns. It does use the battery from your gun. I am assuming that it uses the same connector that is used to hook up to the computer. In which case, all of the high end guns will have it. Unless you are using a gun without a board, you should be ok.

Email Valerie to make sure 7 man only recieves 7 chips. I emailed her earlier in the week and she said that 5 man teams will recieve 7 chips so i would guess 7 man would recieve more?

Can the NPPL please just come in and verify this all please?

How many chips do we get?
How much are they?
What happens if one of those chips mess up our guns?
What happens if we get caught with a gun without a chip?
Edit: Also how easy is it to access the data the chip collects?

Can you buy some extras now and have them installed now so we don't have to worry about it later and better yet, how can we access the shot information that these chips provide so that we can see who is doing what during practices? It is my understanding that these chips can provide a lot more info than just rate of fire. I am more in favor of getting some ahead of time and getting them installed early so I don't have to worry about it when I get there. If they will help the game of tournament paintball and we need to have them then so be it, I want to be proactive in being a part of a solution.

So true! How are they going to tell the difference? It seems to me that this causing more hassle then good.

they explained this earlier that each individual gun, while being chronographed, will be linked to a computer one at a time by a virtue tech that will stand next to you while you shoot the gun. you will not be allowed to leave the pit area or pass off a gun in the mean time.

They will do blah blah blah, whatever. I am curious about using this someplace OTHER than at an NPPL tournament. It seems like it might be cool to see some telemetry after/during practices. When do they release the software for us to link on our own, at home? Until then, who cares, it's such a minor inconvenience , it doesnt even register on the scale.

Thank you for the heads up!

This sounds like a simple chip guys. It monitors the solenoid power to know when the noid fires. It then transmits this via RF I believe.

It should work with any electric marker.

I would like to see if this effects scheduling. With one more thing to check before you get on the field, there are bound to be delays.

Yes I would like to see that as well. Even before they came out with this idea there has been delays in the chrono station. This will slow down the Race to games forsure.

the ability to use the information during practice would be a great way to figure out who is doing what and could be a key in helping teams improve themselves

I had the same thoughts when i first saw this, but then I thought to myself; It can't take more than 7 minutes (the time of a 7 man match) to chrono 14 guns. Then I remembered we are dealing with paintball players

Well hopefully they figure out a quick way to do this. Worked for the pros last year though, right? It's not like they are just coming up with this right now. We need to remember they have done this already.
