Seems sketchy with all of the fields that there are, it'd be hard to juggle them all to set up tournaments and events...

We'll see though.

Just read the rules, seems like if it gets off the ground it could be very legit.
East and West Conference. Teams based of off the region. Let's hope it will be as organized as I think it is.

There are at least 6 teams to a field. We play each other until there is one top team, then off to a semi finals with the other fields, then a finals with the top 2 teams.

The actual games are super fun!

Offense-Defense thing seems weird. I like the idea to have teams per region and more of a league-schedule structure instead of 5 tourneys a year, though; a step towards having hometown teams and building a system more like other high-level sports.

I think it'll be hard to get off the ground and I wish the website had a tad bit more quality, of something that looks professional at least..

Reading the Player Guide it sounds like Football + Paintball. Which is what Moneyball was back in 2005...
This league seems REALLY full of itself, and it's rules are more complicated than necessary....

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.
