We are shooting GI paint. It will not be onsite and as far as I know only we are the only ones using it.
Sooooo basically warm-up games. However usually tournament dates don't conflict so if you guys CAN make it to the other events without struggle is it something you guys are interested in?

this league wont make it. go to their website and look at the team list. mayb 5-6 pro teams? and then barely any divisional teams? this is just another attempt by the old NPPL to try and start a new league under a different banner. dont see this working.

First tournament, first season. It would be pretty unrealistic to expect insane attendance unless the prices were extremely low, but that isn't possible because they actually want to pay out good prizes.

If the first event goes well I bet it will pick up a lot for the following ones.

If you look at the APL list, it already has every team that played the NPPL last year.

It would be pretty risky for any major PSP pro team to contractually commit to an entire pro season in the APL before they know what to expect. Especially given that the PSP's authority is the current paintball standard of legitimacy in tournament play. It would be downright bad management to hedge a professional team's bets on the APL's success so soon, given that it has no history.

I for one hope that the APL is a big success because that would mean more events for everyone, more webcasts of the teams playing, and the potential for more exposure. Haters gonna hate.
May be a new league but the powers to be can be judged on their past experience running XPSL and NPPL.
