I believe the numbers are for statistics... doubt NCPA will follow.

I like the numbers. (imo) they look good, and it definitely helps keep track of players for any reason you can think of. The only inconvenience the stickers bring is printing, organizing, logistics, etc.

I would hope that wouldn't blow people's minds. We're not computers; we have brains. I saw it happen on the webcast today, where someone with 00 on their jersey had 02 on their gun. Sure, the system may not be perfect, but I just see it as a neat, interesting idea, with little downside.

except screw the colored dye rotors. that would ruin everysing!

The numbers they put on the hoppers are to help out the people doing the webcast. There is alot of work that goes into this. They have 3-5 guys just sitting there writing down what players are running out, what players are getting kills, who they're killing, the bunker they were on, shot. I mean any little detail you guys can think of, the guys doing the webcast/ scoring for the Pros do it all. Those guys have a tough job. Next time you guys see a webcast, appreciate all the work these people do.

This happened a bunch in texas, I think the guys just switched to different guns with different numbers and said screw it. more important to have a working gun

Chris has been doing his own system making players fill out tanks, hoppers, masks, and guns on APPA as a waiver for NCPA Nationals.

To my knowledge, this is to help the broadcasters on the webcast identify players quicker and more accurately. Maybe stickers will follow for Class A. I certainly don't see it any time soon for Class AA.
