It might be cheaper to buy 7 new empire jerseys and save on the discount. If you have over 7 players rotate jerseys based on whom is playing. you guys need to realize it's a recession and companies need to make money. The prices are a bit high though I must agree.

I haven't read this thread much, but if you are complaining, then it's quite hypocritical.

How many nationals have you played?
Ultra Evil and Draxxus Gold have been $55 since my first National. (Boston 2006)

HELL....go play some woods ball at Skirmish in Pennsylvania. It's over $100 a case for Evil.

Did you play WCO Last Year with BYOP? What place did you end up?
Do you fly cross country too?

My point is.....if you dont support the league sponsors, the league will fail.
If you dont have the money for paint, sell stuff on craigslist.

I think people just need to get complete information before they start to rant. It went from only one paint vendor to selling one type of paint. Since then, it has cleared up a bit and it's not the end of the world like people were making it.

Also, we have been shooting Valken this entire month and its honestly great paint. We have only shot their highest grade, which I think is all that available right now (thanks china). It was shooting dimes in 40 degree weather and also shot well in 80 degree weather last weekend.

I believe he was referring to how some people believe that pros get everything for free.

i'm tired of all the PSP people that ***** about the NPPL. I wonder where PSP came from anyways. Oh wait the NPPL since we were the first tournament series made you had to spawn from somewhere right.

your point?
the fact is that they obviously have enough teams... someone crying about paint prices due to no sponsor and threatening to leave a league isn't going to make KEE drop the price of paint.

the only reason this event is "sold out" is because they're limited to 3 fields. any more than 120 teams and they would be running games 24 hours.

the big problem is not that ultra evil is $55 per case. if you can pay that good for you.
the problem is that kee is not offering any lower grade paint for say. $40 to $45 per case.

valken on the other hand is charging $35 to $40 per case of paint.
i'd like to see how many more teams went with valken.

Valken

Because most pro teams pay for alot and everyone thinks its all free and its not

Mutiny has paid for almost everything and last year we traveled to play teams and thats all on us....If it wasnt for Tommy o and Tholey there would be no team

I think Walmart should consider selling paint at events



$.99 per can. Would eliminate the need for a gun, tank and hopper too

My point is that the person you responded to said the NPPL needs to get its act together or they will die, and that's what the past few years definitely look like- the death of the NPPL.
