unless i am wrong, the version of centermass that used to play here is done, i used to play for them. The Hawaii version was founded by the same guy and i believe he is in town. most of those teams are actually dated. right now i believe we have active rebellion, UNR, and NV Reign. Let me know if thats not right for that scene. I know on sunday, if you are interested, there will be people at RIP. I know there is a big game out at Herbies on sat. both start around 9.

Most of the older teams have gone dorment but still have players floating around here and there. CenterMass still has players in Reno and we have been playing in the NPPL last season under our Hawaii banner and will be again this year. We did pretty well in 2012. Rebellion was another team in Reno along with Brigade most of who's active players are with RIP if I'm not mistaken.

Both of you two are correct. Just a heads up, tryouts/combine for Reign and various other teams is March 18 at RIP.

dude to be honest with you, you really want teams 2 try out for and play with, go 2 the norcal threads capital edge, davis, and midway in norcal would be your best luck, theres like 2 ok teams in nor nevada.
not 2 hate on reno i wish there were more but thats the truth.

Paintball will never be as big here as it is in NorCal. There are enough players here to run the league and it's always growing.

No kidding. Seems like everybody has beef with everybody and that will probably never happen. I agree though, it would be nice.

For the record; Reno Indoor Paintball (RIP) does not have a beef with anyone. Tournaments are dead. That is why we joined the National Paintball League and formed 6 teams to compete this year. If you want to play, then join one of our teams and compete for the national championship title. Only one team from Reno will earn the right to enter the NPL's Post Season Playoff Series. Its the cheapest paintball series you will ever enter.

Pay your NPL registration fee of $100 if you attended combine, $140 if you did not, and buy your team jersey/headband/barrel back/barrel cover pack for $86 and RIP is giving you free unlimited entry and air from April to August and sponsored paint prices.

And if other fields ever want to work together, then all they have to do is ask since RIP hosted a 3 field meeting 3 years ago and nothing ever came of it because the players did not show up to events.

That wasn't a personal attack...just a general statement and it wasn't even pointed at RIP.

Um, nobody saw that as a personal attack, just a response to the post. Everyone step back, take a breath, and realize that paintball needs to evolve and not everyone can handle that because it does not immediately benefit them.

As stated earlier, most of the teams that used to be around and competitive have since become inactive. I moved to Denver 4 years ago but am still in touch with several of the people I used to play with (and against) and most of them have since stopped playing, but there are a few still grinding it out every weekend - unfortunately most of them have to do it at fields in Northern California. I've heard of the RIP field being open and having a competition team, and then there's ALWAYS Herbies, but that's about it as far as I know.

It's unfortunate that in the past, the owners of the Reno-area fields could never work together to setup a nice tournament series for all of the local ballers due to business differences. I don't know how it is there now, or if it's gotten any better, but all it would do is BENEFIT the field owners to work together and setup something for local players and businesses to be excited about.

I'm in Denver now and there are about 5 fields within an hour of me and they all work together (for the most part) to setup and run a 3/5 man tournament series every year which plays host for several local teams/players to move up to the national level of paintball all while helping fund the local fields that they all started at.
