X factor played there way to pro the won at all the lower divisions.

The original Infamous was Miami Effect and they won a bunch of stuff and has a load of season Pro's

Just to clear it up
Just to clear things up. No X Factor did not "win" their spot they admitted to buying it. Enough Said.

I thought X-Factor won their pro NPPL spot by winning semi-Pro in 2007. Then they proved they deserved it by winning their first Pro NPPL event in 2008. Am I remembering this wrong? They'd already been doing well in the NXL/Pro division in the PSP.

Damage bought our old Pro spot in the NPPL.

I'm pretty sure in the BOYD Archie Montemeyer is on camera explaining that they didn't win their spot and that they bought and were worried about catching flak for it. But then they crushed everyone at HB and dethroned Dyansty so it was all good.



Edit: I wish the best to Phoenix Contact in there new spot! Congrats guys show us what you are made of!!

Yes but they were already playing pro in the PSP. They won psp chicago 2007 (beat Ironmen in the finals) and then decided to play pro in the nppl in 2008. Its a little different.

Wondering what all the dedicated D1 NPPL teams think getting passed over for a pro spot for a team comprised of a couple old pros who have not played a NPPL event in years and some D3/D4 players? Although not all the team members played D3 PSP and got ran over surely the captain and a couple others did. The real blame in this goes to NPPL. Clearly the spot was "bought" with cash or some other consideration as if this throw togethr team is the best team to represent the NPPL brand the league is in serious trouble. When a league is on its last leg this kind of nonsense starts to ocur more and more frequently.

I like that they are stepping up and filling the void left by mutiny. Congrats on having the balls boys. Don't underestimate a team that just pops out of no where. I was on a team very similar to that last year and sure we got handled the first event but we came back and upset a lot of people with two 3rd place finishes. Good luck boys hope to meat up with u guys on the field in vegas, particularly u swizz.

If I have read this thread correctly "Phil" is a pro player who stated he played a D3 event this year because "why not".

A pro player who drops down to D3 because NPPL refuses to fall into a unified ranking system is neither professional or have integrity. How many pro players would really play a D3 event in the other league just because they can? If a pro player has to ask the paintball community "why not" then shame on them they are a black eye to all pro players who have worked countless hours to elevate the sport of paintball.

Mark, is this you?? I thought I set this record straight with you on PBAZ. Keep trying to perpetually scar my image in more and more venues. I have ALSO worked COUNTLESS hours over the past 10+ years helping elevate the sport of paintball, both in the NW and in the SW.

If you are not Mark. You have a twin in Arizona with the same crazy ideas about paintball ethics as you. PSP allows D2 players to play on D3 teams. I played pro in PSP 6 years ago...THEY re ranked me, I didnt ask. Ultimately I didnt feel too bad, I dont tend to think im the best player or will really add much to an entire teams effort, and not to mention the fact I had just gotten shoulder surgery and up until about a month before the event couldn't hold up a gun.....I figure it was a handicap I wasn't going to play anything higher than D3 with. I also didnt have any other current opportunities, I wanted to play paintball, that was the team that offered to have me for that event, so I played.

Everyone needs to chill with calling these guys out just because they're new in Pro. Who cares what division you've played before? As long they're putting the work in now to get ready for the jump, they'll do fine in the long run. Look at what Hinman did with a few D3 players in Pro and tell me they can't compete. Good luck Contact! Good to see more teams stepping up and trying to get to the next level

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.
