hmm. weird bcuz from what i heard from Valken.. was that they were the only paint being sold at HB and their would be no more Evil or DXS.. as to why most of the smaller divisional teams are seeking sponsorships from Valken. And when I called the NPPL office and asked to reserve paint, the female only gave me Valkens number to reserve paint. does that say anything? IDK, im just wanting HB to be fun like it always has been..but this is starting to get rediculous..

Maybe that's because Valken is the only paint vendor set to sell paint at HB?! NOWAI! That's not news. This has been known for like a month.

Duh! It was to prove a point that minions wasn't lying and kee and psp are not allowing evil or dxs to sell paint at nppl. As valken is now sole provider for nppl and Dleague. I hear with Rpl as well.

you really have no clue what you're talking about and obviously haven't read all the press releases and official comments from these companies recently.

his b/s/t feedback has nothing to do with his lack of knowledge on this subject.

http://www.nppl.com/sponsors

They're not listed as sponsors, but this hasn't been news for awhile.

The companies said merge or one league dies. They didn't merge so the companies made their choice. It was inevitable. Happens to all sports that have multiple leagues with professional aspirations.

I just hope if psp takes over they use NPPL venues. Huntington Beach beats Galveston any day. Of course world cup vs Vegas is a toughie... I'd go with Florida... It doesn't get so e cold at night that you can't shoot paint without making confetti.

HB, Chicago, Vegas, Cup would be for sure. If they went with a fifth I don't know. That's where I'm stuck.

And before anyone freaks out, I'm not saying that is what it would be or I have any knowledge, but what I would want to see.

They will figure out a way to use their sponsors paint. I highly doubt that pro teams who dont pay for paint are going to fork out the money for paint now. Im sure they will figure out a way to use their sponsored paint.

I could think that the pro's will shoot the paint and their sponsors will cover the cost. Ive seen that done before.

Pretty sure quite a few people have thought and are thinking about this. Don't give yourself too much credit.

lol win

Either the sponsors will cover the cost of paint, or valken will give pro teams paint for free. I don't think Valken would mind the attention of all the pro teams using their paint, it's their chance to advertise on teams that normally that aren't able to.

Typically thats not how sponsorship works, either you use what your sponsors give you or you dont play (no grey area). At least that's how it was in the old days, if your sponsor gave you a gun and it went down and there wasn't a back up ready another player with a working gun jumped on the field. You didnt just grab another gun and go for it, unless it was another teammates gun that was provided or made by the sponsor.

I know the paintball extravaganza is going on this week. That might be taking up some of there time. Its an international tradeshow kind of thing. I think several of the NPPL committee are helping to host/facilitate it.
