Well, advantage has a set BPS that the gun will start ramping at. Maybe the NPPL has a new robot that can be set to shoot 12BPS... if it does and at the same time it reads its really shooting 18, Voila... DQ. At least for the ones that cannot turn on and off.

However for the Speedy chips, I really dont know how they will catch those.

The chips have a different coding system on every gun that the player sets. No two codes are the same. I am sure there are like a couple that are out there.

AdvantagePB is a messed up company. They had an auction on EBay for 2 cents for a chip. I did Buy IT Now and now they will not honor my purchase.
They said "That was just an advertisment." I advised that EBay does not allow advertisments, nor links to outside venues to purtchase items;and something has to be sold, so they owe me a chip.
Choads.

Haha I saw that auction your an idiot if you think your getting a $300 board for a penny.

It clearly didn't say that a board was being sold, it was an ad, it wasn't even misleading.

I hope you get emailed a picture of a board.

Heh, "$300 board"..

All they sell are 50 cent pic chips that anyone with a burner could make in a minute provided they had the code (say, from another chip)..

your an idiot if you thought you were getting a $300 chip for a penny..

LOL

now here on the other hand:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...1404 702&rd=1

THE CHIPS CANNOT BE COPIED..

There are ways to break this protection scheme, but it is not cheap and requires some serious hardware.

So you have two options:

Lock it.

Leave it exposed.

There is nothing in between.

Ok, so they read protect the chips, that still doesn't make it a "$300 board".

Either way its pretty lame that people are taking advantage of paintballers who feel the need to waste their money to cheat by gouging them for something that is so very cheap to manufacture. Supply and demand and all that jazz, but its still lame.

P.S. Don't bother giving me the lecture on how people can use them in the privacy of their homes etc. It's lame no matter how you slice it, and its a damn shame that the NPPL has to waste man hours to keep people honest.

You're probably one of the choads that screws people here on the BST forums too. I placed a bid because I knew Ebay does not allow adds on their auctions. The auction was a fraud in terms of Ebay's and my definition. They were just trying to get cheap advertizement, and they should have to pay for their mistake.

Advantage makes some of the best products out there... they ad you showed was just an ad.. no where did it say you could buy a chip for 2 cents.. Sounds like you are trying to fraud them though!!

Oh, yeah he's trying to defraud them by taking part in their fradulent ebay "advertisement", that makes a lot of sense.

And by best products out there, did you mean "best products out there for people who intend on using these in the privacy of their own homes", or "best products out there for people who intend on breaking the rules of tournament or recreational play"?
