Yeah, they do, but it is about as far from the PSPs current business model as can be. PSP organizes 5 tournaments this year and has the people and equipment to make that happen. Chancing that so that they would collect money from all the local tournament organizers would force to change about everything they do.

There is lots of hoopla about all the new feeder series and maybe the idea is - some day in future - to have them actually matter and feed teams to one big championship tournament, but I don't think that is happening soon. The current feeder series run their own businesses and crown their own champions, getting them to give that away is going to take time.

Moving to "local tournaments - regional tournaments - championship tournament" model would also directly fight the current big push to make the webcast. Instead of having five big tournaments per year for people to watch, there would be only one big and a bunch of smaller ones with lower level of play. I don't think that is what is aimed for in the new webcast venture either.

I only believe this should happen with the low ranks. Like d5/d4 and maybe d3, as an introduction to the high levels

aw, i'm soo glad you asked.

they need only to create a new category or division as you might say. and they only need to apply it once (normally on world cup, being the biggest event)

the regional tournaments could be handled by the PSP itself, but being that this is maybe too much work for them, they could just let other parties handle the tournaments (the way they do with their already existing affiliate leagues)

the crowned champions from this "regional" leagues are endorsed and sponsored to play on world cup, for the National - Regional Division Cup or whatever you want to call it.

The "regional division" would have to be regulated in such a way that the already existing PRO teams are not allowed to participate in it (so as to let other new people the chance to make something), and the whole PRO division would then be classified truly as a Professional Club Division.
You want to go pro, you're going to have to belong in the club via past achievements (winning D1, winning National cup, etc etc) and applying for it, similar to how you do it now

that way you protect the Pro Division and the National division per see and let each one be.
The Pro division would still be la creme de la creme, but national championships would actually now mean something too.

the PSP won't lose busyness at all.
if anything they're giving the fighting chance to all the teams that can't normally afford to travel and play in events but can afford to play local and are damn good at it, to actually go to world cup and kick ***.

it won't discourage D1,D2,D3,D4... teams from going to the events they were already planning on attending, as they are just as free to enrole in those divisions as they are now.
But it might encourage local tournament attendance, as those D teams will be tempted to win locally so as to ensure free of charge participation to world cup and the chance to a little more meaningful tittle than D3 champs. They get the chance to become National Champions or whatever. that sounds a little better.

just my two cents.

I have met the NPL leadership and for one completely understand why they did not explain everything the way we wanted and instead explained it the way they wanted because their method was best for them!

Top secret meetings - wow seriously. Like the SUPER EGO MANIACS over at N**L and P*P didn't have any of those too. Why don't you start your comments with "I LOVE EVERYTHING P*P and LANE too!" so we know your a hater of everything else.

Don't be mad because you have wasted thousands of dollars on a league(s) that have done nothing new for the sport except make themselves more money.

Feeder leagues, what a joke. Just realize that the old systems are broken and whatever you do, don't ever come up with a new idea because someone will tell you to scrap it as garbage and stick with the old way. I for one am glad no one ever told Dana White of the UFC that.

isnt this what march madness is? cant a team's fans watch all the regular games and then there is the best in the nation that make it to the final big tounament that the whole nation watches? that is the premise. each region plays against itself and then once the regiions best overall team is crowned the best teams from around the nation face off and fight there way to a national championship. this i think would encourage more people to play and develop across the nation than sitting at home watching the worlds worst streaming footage of the same eight teams at every webcast tournament.

Its official Brules is a moron! 1) not understanding that the video was for demo only and those of us that play the game know its so much faster than anything Brules can ever handle and thats why your sitting at HB right now waiting 45 minutes between games to play in the worlds most boring format. They have 10 cameras out there and they still cant cover the slowest paintball format ever created.
Oh you have the NPL confused with NPPL - that makes sense.

2) Stupid comment
3) can't count number of players on the field as there is only 8 - geez. take your shoes off

I am willing to bet that you are sitting at HB wishing you did not waste your money. BLAH HA HA. Knowing that Arkansas produced another illiterate = fail.

Really, don't get your panties in a wad - if you love PSP or NPPL just say so and don't worry about what this league does or does not do. Its just not for you and that is totally ok since not everyone can play this fast of a game. Every team needs a Pod B***H.

haha just attended a brother field trying out the format.

in the middle of the second half, someone plugged the laptop with the xball timer to the stereo and everybody started playing race to 3.

this format is huge fail.

NPPL is no good, and PSP does have room to improve, but out of them all i'll stick with PSP and their defacto leadership any day.

This format, in my opinion, is so far off from where we need to be. No, I don't think that the NPPL or PSP are ideal, either.

This is adding layers of complexity to the game without adding much value, if any at all.

Yes 7v7 for NPPL but for N.P.L it is 4v4. The points are back to back. The written rules are VERY convoluted but the play is super is to understand. Im not sure what field you were at when they played it but he numberous times we have played it up here have been very successful and spectator friendly. This is change and there will always be those apposed to change. NPPL and PSP all started somewhere COMPLETELY different than where they are now. And EVERY step of the way there was push back.

It would be cool if a local field from NJ joined the league so your area could be represented in the post season playoffs and possibly at the national championship. I have read through this leagues rules and players guide and then met them at a demonstration game. The whole crew is totally into making speedball better for everyone and especially local players who normally don't attend the other league events and field owners who have been backing away from speedball because of all the issues surrounding it.

Tell a local field about the league, tell them your interested, tell them to schedule a demonstration game, and then contact the league so you all can experience what we have found to be the fastest and most fun game in speedballs history.

Wow, you are an *******.

Seriously, you come on the Nation and insult people for playing PSP or NPPL. You make repeated jabs at the NPPL and their leadership, and call players clowns because we "want to wear pink beanies [and] everything a different color." You claim to be unaffiliated with the NPL, yet every single one of your posts is in some way related to it. Get off your high horse, and listen to your own ****ing advice. If you like the NPL, don't worry about what the other leagues are doing.

Josh,

You are absolutely right. I was being very much an *******.

To be clear, I don't care what people play. I just know that my team spent a lot of money over the years to be screwed over by the other leagues and we are very ready for something new.

I don't worry about what the other leagues are doing and am only responding to the people here that like to talk about other leagues on a thread that is suppose to be discussing the NPL.

I am not affiliated with the league, but wish I was because I believe they are on the right track.

I do apologize for being rude, but the post was about NPPL and I got very frustrated. The posts I made about the NPPL and PSP were banned and or removed so oh well I guess I struck a nerve and thats why the NCPA ducked out of this thread too.

Thanks for setting me straight.

Some valid points. Just one thing, watched hb, love the event always have. But to me 7 some odd minutes wasted with people looking the same direction and making their primaries then not moving is boring, and these are pros. (mutiny game prelims) NPL puts athleticism back into paintball. PSP turns you around in 2 minutes npl turns you around as fast as you can go. playing the format I had 30 seconds between a point and no ability for a line change.

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.
