Why the hell don't we have a Combine?

Ok with all the teams looking to pick up players all the way from the d5/beginner level thru the d1 level....

At the high level you've got

D1 Infamous
D1 Damage Inc
D1 Boom
D2 Project Mayhem
D2 Siege
D2 AC402.com

At the mid level you've got
D3 Damage Inc
D3 Enemy
D3 Bomb Squad
D3 Project Mayhem
D3 Boom
D3 MW Arson

At the lower level you've got
To many to name.....

I am certain that any and all of these teams would love to see the free agent talent in the MW right now, and would most likely be willing to pick up players. Instead of everyone and there brother try to run a tryout and having them conflict with other tryouts and practices and tournaments, I think someone should just sack up and put together a combine.

*****CENSORED SO NO FEELINGS GET HURT..... We need to organize this so all teams and all players in the area are able to attend.

I personally would be more than willing to assit in putting this together if someone else wants to take point on the project.

So what you're saying, is you want paintball players to actually be ORGANIZED and work together for a change? Blasphemy!

I know it was done like 2 years ago right? Im not saying this like it's some fresh new idea I came up with, I am saying we should do it AGAIN! It seems like there are a lot of teams out there looking for bodies right now.

Did it not work last time, is that the issue? I did not attend the last one because I was traveling for work at the time, but I remember seeing posts about it on the nation.

Last time didn't really work out that well tbh. Too many slackers always come out for these type of things, make it on to a team, then quit a month later for some BS reason. I see where your coming from, but too many players are simply unreliable.

here is the thing Eddie when u have tryouts sometimes not all the guys that want to tryout cant make it so then you have to run another one so they can make it this time an while ur at putting another one together for those why not see if anyone else wants to tryout an see if they have what it takes to make it on the team.

But i understand what ur saying an the last time there was one big tryout with more then one team there looking you run into problems

1 u have to worry if they really want on ur or not
2 u might to compete with the other teams to pick that player up
3 the one team runs there tryouts might not be what the other teams want to do
4 everyone wants to know the deals so then u have players trying to play teams against each other to give a better. team deals are for those guys that play for the team not for them to pit team against team for the better
5 if i have to argue with a kid about his getting a better deal somewhere then i say go play there an good luck

so there u go eddie there in my opinion why it doesnt happen when there are top level teams looking at those kind of tryouts

Boston Paintball, amongst other places, has been running Combines for several years, but it is also rolled into a mini- clinic and 1v1 tournament with prizes, pro-clinic, video game competition, etc. I know that the ability to run a thorough clinic is limited, but Nick might have some insight into this, having been involved with it a year ago. Granted, the sole purpose is not just teams grabbing players.

I wonder what other leagues/regions run a Combine? No offense to Badladz, but doing a Combine outdoors on a cold, rainy November morning outdoors does not promote turnout. This would need to be indoor, about December/January.

I understand that this is not the easiest of tasks, and I know that we do not live in a perfect world.

I guess I was just hoping that MAYBE, just maybe that the players in the MW paintball scene could all get together and act like adults for one or 2 days.

If players can't commit, I don't understand why they would waste their time and money coming, I am sure its happened but honestly why give off false expectations?

As far as players price shopping teams that sounds retarded to me. Any decent player should be price shopping teams for their organization, talent pool, and overall potential to win. Not how cheap they get paint.... And if they are not doing that, then they are most likely a player no one will want..

Once again, I know this is not easy, and if I had the knowledge and resources I would put this together myself.... But I don't, which is why I made this thread, to get others opinions and insite. And my offer still stands that if anyone wants to take lead on this and try to set it up I will do everything I can to help and make it work.

I think Eddie would be a great person to organize a Combine.....
