shawn =D i still love you, even though you ruined a perfectly good league that doesnt need fancy broadcasting. who didnt know the nppl back then? hell, if u played paintball, you knew what the nppl was. but not only did u screw that up, nppl was banned from pbnation for the longest, and it took you forever for people to be allowed to discuss nppl on pbnation. look at pbnation now, nppl is still not on the front page. seriously, how bad can you mess up to be boycotted from a FORUM!!! this is a forum site, for christ sakes.


What did you do wrong Shawn Walker?

Seriously, I want the answer to that.

The answer is he stole money form the NPPL organization, and had no concern about what was going to happen to his co-workers. He is a greedy *** hole. Now is the people he used to work with are out of a job.

One can only hope it's true!

The important question is, as long as you can HIT with 1 bps, isn't that good enough?

At first I was all up for helping the NPPL get back on it's feet, I was even ready to donate money for the cause. After carefully reading all the threads regarding the bankruptcy situation, I say screw em. Shawn Walker is plain and simple what is wrong with this country. You get someone into power and they get greedy. They get power hungry, they don't care about anyone but themselves and along the way they dont care who's jobs they take. Shawn Walker here is to you, you Imperialist Bastard, rot in hell. I hope all the people you embezzled from sue your *** and you spend the next 25-30 years in a prison cell with your *** up against the wall in fear of Bubba.

You all know that the PSP will have 7-man next year, why not? Those greedy bastards will take full on advantage of the situation and look to better line their pockets.

I say screw em both; go back to the regional tournies and go back to the roots of paintball. All you top-notch teams go mingle with us common players and give kids something to look forward to. If you all big leaguers are still lookin for a challenge and want to stay together than hop the pond and play against the Europeans.

10 bps still feels fast - I don't think people will mind 13->10 any more than people minded 15.4->13.

8 definitely feels slower. 8 is about where you stop feeling like someone is throwing a rope of paint at you - i.e. about as fast as you want for new players.

But, I think the industry has finally had an epiphany. At least I hope they have. I hope they don't care if current tournament players like it. I hope they've realized that the high rates of fire have been killing their business and they are going to roll it back so paintball is fun for new players again. If a couple crybabies quit because they suck too bad to hit anything at 8 bps, I hope that's a price the industry is willing to pay to have growth again.

Hell, at 8-10 bps, we might even put ramping in the NCPA.

- Chris

ok i think your going to have a severe backlash,, shooting paint pellets fast is fun and is a huge part of paintball , a watered down politiclly correct xball league is going to be very weak ,luckily for them the other bozos killed off their comp other wise there would be a revolution,, im my experiance when governments,leagues ,companies or w/e try to legislate their agenda it has a way of creating compitition and ultimitly killing itself off,, paint manufacturos trying to limit the rof and ultimitly increase the price of paintballs will backfire,, tournanments decreasing the rof and different skill sets will fail,, you talk about cry babies quitting, those cry babies are the customers and players ,why do you hate them so much ? becouse they want the sport that was promised them, remeber that the players and customers didnt invent technology that shot guns at 18 bps . and the funny thing is the arm race continues ,dye has a gun thats rumoured to shoot 40 bps?? for what? all becouse fields cant control the different skill levels or seperate the new players from the experianced ones? and the industry cant get together to promote paintball and figure out a cheaper way to make paintballs? this is like telling surfers they cant use shortboards anymore becouse it freaks out new guys so they have to only use longboards, GOOD LUCK !!!
