then you obviously didn't play Vegas last year. I usually prefer Evil but it was a disaster at that event. It was my first time shooting Valken at HB and it was awesome. cant vouch for APX

Valken makes superb paint. I would shoot it over Evil any day.

this discussion isn't about what paint is better, people will debate on that for days. I would just like to see NPPL try and either address some of the peoples concerns or explain themselves. The politics and favoritism is what needs to stop, this league won't survive otherwise

Everyone is confusing the issues here. The NPPL did not allow anyone but pro teams to shoot GI or RPS paint. If divisional teams got a hold of it it was because pro teams violated their sponsorships and sold it/gave it to those divisional teams.
Does someone have pictures or know which divisional teams were shooting evil? It would be a lot easier to track down the root cause of this.

I'd hate to get involved in this but I gotta say everyone *****ing about this are a bunch of ****ing idiots.. Pro teams shot evil because many of us are under contract.. If nppl didn't let us shoot evil a lot of teams wouldn't be playing the event.. So shut the **** up and play paintball. As for the divisional teams getting it I don't know.. Either way sack up and quit *****ing.

still just politics. why let the pro's shoot it and not divisionals. If they aren't an authorized paint vendor, why bend the rules for the pro's?

If nppl is going to take a hard stance, then don't puss out.

I can guarantee you won't see valken at a psp event handing paint to x-factor to shoot.

14 pro teams vs 100+ divisional teams...

You obviously didnt read/understand what i posted. I understand that you and other pro teams are under contract and have an obligation to shoot ultra evil, thats fine and awesome, thats not what im disputing or what im upset about, you (pros) get special privleges because of who you are and what you do. The problem comes when DIVISIONAL teams are shooting ultra evil, this is complete bull**** and i wish Nppl would address this issue, at this point it doesnt look like they give a ****, and any teams can shoot whatever the hell they want.

again im not saying the valken shot bad, it shot fine, but if the nppl says that only X and Y paint can be shot at the event, and teams are shooting brand Z with no repercussions whatsoever, thats when i have a problem.

People are complying bc it gives an unfair advantage to some teams. It does not matter if valken shot good or not. The fact of matter is some div teams got the choice of what kind of paint they shot and some did not.

I know for a fact that some paint companies had offered to hook it up with divisional teams due to their relationships with those teams.

I can't name teams or which companies, but it was definitely offered.

Evil was not available for us to shoot at HB.
We shot Valken Pro and it was amazing.

Wrong. I made it to sunday, thats absolutely not what this is about. As stated many times before "if the nppl says that only X and Y paint can be shot at the event, and teams are shooting brand Z with no repercussions whatsoever, thats when i have a problem.

This whole thread is about what paint was being offered, and shot at the event, not how my team did, or if we made sunday or anything of that nature.

I think i can shed some light on this situation.
TCP was playing camp pendleton raiders to move on to top four. the games were tied up and came down to a third game. the third game tcp lost fair and square to camp pendleton raiders but continued to complain about how they cheated. a fight ensued but was shortly broken up.
then minutes after tcp's loss they were scouring the field for evil paint that cpr was supposedly shooting. TCP couldnt except that they lost so they were looking for any excuse to blame everyone and anyone but themselves. they embarrass the sport and their own players.
my proof to this is simple. why didnt tcp mention this friday morning when games started? they waited till sunday after all the games were finished to complain. they are soar losers and lost what little respect i had for them

Well there you go looks like you got it all figured out.
1. I did not, nor have i ever played for Tcp Machine, nor did i play under a tcp team at this event.
2. The only thing im looking for is a response/ explanation from Nppl

You won't get one dude. Not through PBN at least. You want a response you better go to the NPPL website and get some contact info and either start making calls or emails. However you need to make sure you word out everything right or you will just get an answer like, "That didn't happen kid, only pro teams had KEE paint."
