That's what we're aiming for, keeping it local for the time being just so everyone can catch their bearings again

Its true, locals are usually more expensive though, not as good turnouts, i cant see that hyper pipe tourney getting 12 teams honestly.. But anyway, if you guys arent doing anything this Sunday, come up to All Star cause DSP will be up there!

There isn't one team from pro down to d5 that doesn't play locals so if you think that your crazy . Dynasty plays in the uwl for Christ sakes.

Everyone has a paintball gun and guess what it fires paintballs !

So go for it . You should really come together on what you want ... You want to play 5 man speed ball ? Then practice speedball not hyper pipe . If you want to play d4/5 5 man then you should look into a series that you can help grow with your boys and eventually make a name for yourself .

Mapl, Epl, Sps, all these leagues are just for d4/5 players looking to grow .

What you need is structure and direction .

Pick a format , pick your guys and take it one event at a time . If you invest all your eggs into one basket for this Otp event and your not ready and lose bad then what happens you guys going to break up ? You should consider practicing until your beating teams through and through each week then look to compete .


Just my two sense from
Someone who watches alot of paintball and players and teams grow.

This is a really good point, I don't think we should be getting ahead of ourselves into an event that won't be what we're targeting. If our initial mentality is to compete in 5 man then I think we should focus on that. As good as a start this hyperball tourney would be I do feel that were straying away from what our goal is, plus it's a different style of play from what we want to focus on. Maybe we should take a few weekends to practice before that 5 man otp, then we'll see if were ready for the quickshot tourney.

I'm just trying to help you guys . First of all Colin played for my local team for about 3 season straight playing in all the old gpl Otp tournaments ect.

I get nothing if you guys win or lose nor does your team affect my national team.

I just want to see you succeed with paintball grow your field your name and eventually be a contender in the sport that's all .

Seeing the teams we would be playing in future events wouldn't progress the team forward, also we won't see tourny prices this cheap much longer, it's $30 more than any practice with a chance of actually winning something, you can't let people who arnt on our team dictate where, when and what events we play, I do appreciate his 2 cents but I thought we already had a game plan set

ok, so what is everyone doing this weekend? I think we need to get together and honestly discuss what each of us think we should do. maybe even tonight if possible. We need to pick a direction to take the team and set goals personally and for the team.

Well then let's play it, I was just mentioning that it was a good point to focus on our goal of 5 man speedball. I'd love to play this event and I expect many good things out of it.

Yea, i would recommend the SPS, its D5 and below which would be great for you guys. They are all local locations and cheap. Its thru appa so you will need one of them and you get points too. These locals dont really do much for ya, cause id like to do the OTP in march and the Quickshot at the end of march, its just not worth the money. Its like practice that costs a lot
