Wonderful. Well done to both those who made the film, and of course, those who played paintball in it!

Thanks for all the great comments! It's almost impossible for paintball to be officiated 100% correctly. The point of Omeed's comment was not to poke at Vicious or the refs, and I think the way I edited it may have caused it to look that way...

Omeed has a lot of respect for them, and he actually says he dislikes playing them "it's always so close when we play Vicious, always a grind"

The reality is - you shouldn't leave a match up to the refs and the last second points. Storm got the short end of the stick multiple times but perseverance put them in the champs division.

With all that said. I still want to see the penalty footage that DerDer supposedly has. Either way it won't change the past.

*PLOT TWIST* - At 5-10 seconds remaining on the final point, the same ref threw the major on Storm at MAO AND WORLD CUP finals while playing Vicious. #conspiracy!!!!!!!

I kid, I kid. Maybe.

Hey, refs are human and can get things wrong. If it's wrong it's much more likely that it's just human error than a conspiracy. If it was politics playing a role for the whole match, they wouldn't have been behind needing the point for overtime. That situation is *really* easy to avoid.

I'd honestly rather see more power of discretion given to the refs, rather then blanketed penalty rules.

IE

World Cup Finals at 2 seconds left.... Player 1 runs down the dorrito corner and player 2 spins on player 1. Both are marked. However there is no one near the flag let alone, have the chance to hang the flag.

Is the penalty worth a swing point AND player 2 staying in the deadbox during the overtime point?

How is this not a detriment to the purity of the finals?


Allowing the refs to make that judgment call, could be one of the many steps in cleaning up the officiating concerns.

I look at Texas Storm in a new way now, definitely the underdog I'm going to root for at dallas. I've had similar experiences with shady ref call. It shouldn't all just be determined by what a ref somewhere on the field sees. Questionable calls should be determined by footage... I've greatly enjoyed all three parts, good luck at the festival. Although, I do feel that it could of been centered around Omeed a little more.

There are 2 versions of the rookie season 1.

The one released to PbNation was centered around Paintball.
The one released to IDF has a bit more background. Couple scenes on the plane, in the car, in the hotel room etc

I may have a part 4 filled with bloopers/funny stuff I filmed throughout the year

edit: But, yes thank you. After I sitdown and watch it now, it could have had a few more background bullet points answered....

How did he go from D4 to Pro in 1 off season with only 1 nation even played (D4 race to 2 mind you...)
How did the tryout go?
What was traveling like from Houston to OKC every weekend for practice?
How did it effect your school/family/etc...

all items i'll keep in mind for next season.

I watched that Finals game on the webcast and it felt very much like a robbery then, and felt exactly the same watching this now.

with that said, gotta give it up to Vicious for capitalizing on the opportunity. It could have easily not gone that way and Vicious supporters would be the ones crying foul. I like both squads and couldn't have been happier that the game was THAT close.

2014 is going to be crazy and ill be rooting on STORM from anywhere I am.

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.
