NPPL chipping my gun...

This is my first event and someone told me about this.

We are playing D4. Is this for all players or just certain divisions?

How this exactly work? From what I understand we have to check our guns in and is this when they would put the chip in?

Thanks in advance.

It's a Virtue chip that all players need; they give you one for free, and then $60 for additional/replacements. It basically plugs into your board, and will record shots fired, how long you were alive, win/loss ratio, and estimated kills. Then NPPL emails you the stats after the event.

Thanks guys. Any downside to having this chip on your gun?

Are we able to take this out ourselves after the tournament or do we have to bring it back to NPPL after for them to take the chip out?

**** yeah there was a down side last year.. short circuited 2 of my ego 11s...
No one could fix them at any shop... was going crazy till i sent it to eclipse and they said the chip short circuited my board. Which was capping my gun at 11 semi... even though my gun was saying 15 and 15 capped..... Hate that chip...
Do what they do in psp and wcppl. a ****ing radar gun when you go in... Those chips are wack..

Wow. This is what I was afraid of.

Does NPPL have any sort of waiver stating that these chips wont do anything to the guns?

I used in in my ego11 last season and mine was fine. They plug into the solenoid port on your board then your solenoid plugs into the chip. It doesn't affect the gun (not supposed to). All divisions use them. They are easy to install and just sit next to the board. If you need help, the virtue people wil help you, as will fellow players.

The chip is included in your payment for your card. you pick it up at HB.
i HIGHLY recommend going thursday to put it in your gun and make sure everything is okay. don't wanna do it friday morning around 6am when registration will be packed and then your an hour till game time and your gun won't shoot… just my two cents

anyway Used one on my EGO 10 in Vegas 2012. didn't have any problems. The gun is more to make sure nobody is shooting hot or above the cap of 15 and just make sure your gun is in regulation with the NPPL rules

as far as the stats being emailed to you go… Vegas was last year… still haven't received mine.

anyone else?

Heard this was just for pro this year? Also, didn't stats only come out for HB and Chicago?

Also, the stats sucked. Said we shot like 5 cases total or something stupid. Complete waste. I've had the chip in my gun since last year's HB and never had a problem.

No, you're wrong, everyone needs one.

I read either on NPPL's fb, site, or e-mail that the chip was NOT going to be included with your ID this year and it would be an additional $60 if you did not get one in the 2012 season
Can someone clarify this please?

I don't know where you saw this. Since Vegas, I haven't seen any mention of chips of the emails, site, or FB.

It does not show how hot your shooting lol.... thats why they still chrono you before you walk in the field...... only tells how fast people are shooting.
