PbNation Official Poll: The best paintball team of all time

I've been getting a lot of requests to do more of these polls and this is one I hear discussed often.

If you have a team that you think should make the list and isn't up there, feel free to not vote and just post. If we get enough requests, I'll add them.

Bonus points if you post the year you think the team really stood out.

PRO-90's through early 00's Aftershock! dominant as hell and helped make World Cup bigger.
Am-A/D1/Semi-Pro(Whatever you want to call it) Trauma 01-02 6 straight wins (W.C. to W.C.). Trauma is my favorite team by far.

Both Dynasty and Ironmen have such storied histories, but overall, Dynasty has to have the best record of all time.

This is a tough one... the AA's took a lot of titles, as did Aftershock/Lords/Scream. Dynasty's had an amazing career as a team. Teams like Trauma and Avalanche were outstanding while they were on their game, but their runs were shorter. Bob's various teams, especially back in the day, have to be respected as well. Heck, even Joy Division had some amazing times in the Milennium series, but were less successful in the US events.

One of the other interesting facets to this is that sometimes entire teams up and left, reforming as something else. XSV were the core of the Ironmen from 2003. Infamous/Miami Effect were the core of Avalance from 2001. And weren't Image and Trauma really the same team under different names at different times?

I think people forget how good the original Ironmen team was when Bob was still with them.

DOT.

Most people on here don't remember that though. They think "Yeah, well the same can be said of Dynasty." Dynasty is a great team. They win, they're consistent, and they've always risen to the challenge. But back in the day, Aftershock was insanely dominant! They didn't rise to the challenge because they were the challenge.

I think this would have been better had it been done in smaller groups.

Maybe who was the greatest team Pre-2000, 2000-2005, 2005-2010, 2010-now.

We just have too big of a history to say one team has been the best ever IMO.

Just to throw a wrench into your gears though, I choose Brimstone Smoke.

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.
