Dude. Hawaii is just slightly bigger than Chicagoland, and doesn't have anywhere near the population. A lot of people are going to be flying in and staying at hotels. That's expensive as hell, especially when you don't give them a lot of lead time.

This is going to cost teams a **** ton of money... Way to think NPPL. Release a schedule 3 weeks ahead of time and expect people to come. Well, if nothing else, hopefully this spill speed your demise.

So let me get this straight. It costs 1200 to enter. if you win first you get 1200 towards an nppl tournament and a trophy. It would cost that much for 2 plane tickets to get to the lower 48 in its self, let alone for 7-8 people. And at least in the PSP feeder series' people can make a little money.

I think you mean cover a little of the cost. Make money is the wrong term.

some people forget about the teams from hawaii that travel every year to attend the events in the states , and how much money they dish out every year . its about time they get a homebase event , might not be the best but its an event . give them that much respect .

Lets be honest... How many teams/people fly from Hawaii for each event? It can't be that many.

At least five teams are dedicated to the tournament scene . I can tell you that it aint cheap for them to show up at the tourneys.

If they are all dedicated to NPPL, then that makes sense as it accounts for half of the divisional teams who compete in the NPPL. Really though, make 95% of your teams double their investment to compete for no prizes?

Makes, literally, no cents.

What the hell happened to tournament paintball. Back in the day you would win new guns, loaders, sponsorship packages etc... Now people just get a discount to play for imaginary points. The payouts for these tournaments does nothing more than allow you to break even after all expenses spent. Bring back REAL prize packages.

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.
