Ramping was one of the biggest differences from the leagues. I'm seriously doubt that's going to change
Hopefully some other things though.

not in my eyes, I think they were both tied, I liked some things about both of them, for instance. I loved how the NPPL was 7-man, I loved how PSP had a timer and rounds (although I do not like the new race style where the first team to I think it is 6 wins), I loved how the NPPL was semi, I loved how the NPPL had no sideline coaching, I loved how the penalties are in PSP, I loved the reffing of the PSP, I didn't like how the PSP has sideline coaching.

My perfect format would be 7-man on a football sized field, the field was based on a large xball field, semi, timer, not a first to however points wins, no sideline coaching, PSP style penalties, and PSP's style of reffing. I think that would be perfect.

Many may disagree with me and thats fine, but I think that would be the perfect format.

Here is a charity tournament - http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2762298

and the pros coming to it - http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2901061

My view on the whole situation is that this is in no way a negitave to the paintball industry and world for players or tournaments. This can only go in two dirrections, growth, or merger.

By the meanings of growth, the psp is one of the remaining 'major' leauges. This in no way means that they're 'happy' about the NPPL hitting bankrupt. But by groth the psp can invest in buying the NPPL (Pacific Paintball) which will lead to a merge. By a merge I mean by the idea of the PSP purchasing the NPPL, they can add more divisions and a new format to PSP. By doing that they can have more tournaments, or longer tournamnets, more venders, more sponsors, and yes, more orginization; now all tournaments can be appa formated which will lead to better ranking classificication. (spelt wrong, i know).

This is not obama's fault, this is not anyones fault execept for Pacific Paintball, which even then, it is still not they're fault. This is a bad few weeks, espically when check's are bouncing and they're is alot of doubt. But everything will be okay in the end, if its not okay, its not the end.

Since we are in the midwest, we traveled to KC and picked up a field from the event after it was over. The NPPL had nothing to do with the sale.

Wasn't it the owner of Edmonton Impact who even admitted that his guns all had cheater boards at the NPPL meeting at SD? I think I remember someone saying something about it. One of the ref staff or someone else high up in the org. If they are doing it, you can bet that most of the other pro and semi pro teams are.

we get it, the NPPL didn't use your infinantly better player ID system, so everything else about them must be horrible too
but you know what, some of us spent the last 20 or so years learning marker skills and think that ramping is just plain lazy, and we have spent that same time learning field awarness and think that sideline coaching in paintball just dumbs it down, but hey you have you opinion and I have mine

He is simply stating the truth. Its just plain ignorant to think that cheater boards/ramping/bounce whatever and even sideline coaching weren't a part of the NPPL.

Seriously, this is not the first time he tried to put down NPPL, XPSL and Shawn Walker. And I agree it's because they didn't use his id system. If they were using his system. All the negative quotes that he has posted, and there have been PLENTY!!! Would infact be all positive of course. As a business owner that isn't very professional. Get over it already!!!
