no, I think most of the other pro teams are now reaching the level dynasty has been playing at. Other teams have seen what it takes to win as many tournaments as dynasty has and they have worked much harder to be at that level. It shows. Either way you will continue to see dynasty on sundays.

Obviously thier style of play has worked in the past, and they continue to be in top four at the majority of events. They have earned a name for themselves in the past, which makes any loss a chance for for the accusation to be made that they are slipping. So far it seems to be unfounded, but a new season, a new sunday.

NO Dynasty is not declining.
If anything they are back on the rise again from the loss of Ollie several years ago.

I also agree and 2nd the ones i have quoted.

They are one of the few teams to have literally built a "Dynasty" on their team name. Consistently for the past 6 years they have won. Even through roster changes, after losing Lang, they still pull out wins.

They just won MAO as well... Do you really think they're declining?

I don't.

Wait a second, Ollie is no longer on Dynasty!?

Oh damn, they screwed!

Dynasty will continue to reign as long as they can keep their game plans tight. They aren't getting any worse, but I don't think they've been getting better. They've had many close finishes last year, in the NXL especially, but it all comes down to winning events. Don't get me wrong, Dynasty is probably the most sucessful paintball team of all time, but without those first place finishes, they're just coming up short. I have faith they'll begin winning more NXL events from now on. They're working on a different curve than any team out there, so they've got themselves to beat before than can take it against anyone else.

the most dominant team in paintball history for sure. theyve won the nppl every year of its existence. when they were teens they were beating the **** out teams who were in their prime like ironmen, aftershock, and bob longs ironmen. They won 3 out of 5 nppl events last year. they got 3rd 4 times and 2nd once at psp last year. If anything they had a decline in 06 but you could argue that it was their first year in the nxl and they still managed to place consistently in nppl to win the series, but anything could be considered decline after winning 8 out of 10 american events in 05.

I don't think its a question of them declining but rather the improvement of other teams they are playing.

Its taking some time but now all the teams in the sport are starting to catch up in skill level to Dynasty and its showing.

The name of the team says it all.

They innovated. Innovation eventually becomes mimicked, copied, and eventually, everyone figured out how to be competitive. They're better now than they've ever been. The level of skill is just that much higher.

Yeah all the other teams have gotten better the only show of decline I have seen is that they didn't make it to sunday in Jacksonville so as far as skill they aren't declining but wins they may begin to win alot less

dynasty won because they had the best 4 fronts in the buisness and versatile backs, and communicated better then anyone else in the buissness

their fronts are a little older and a little slower, however justin schwartz? has brought a little more firepower to the front line, so much so that they could even play with out fraige their cap and do decently well

I think that for the first time they wont win the NPPL, i think they have dug a hole thats pretty deep and would have to go on a run akin to the xsv dynasty war days, a run that will be so much harder with the level that the other teams are at, especially when Ironmen get to cheat like at jacksonville

they are still the greatest team in the history of the sport
