XSV is not playing in the NPPL this year

I spoke to one of the players on XSV and he says the team has no plans to play the NPPL in 2013. They will be focusing on the PSP this year.

That means they won't be defending their 2012 Season Championship.

Has a Pro team ever won the series and then not returned to defend their title?

Strange to me, only because I figured XSV was one of those pro teams that was more "in" with the NPPL, not the PSP. Oh well, good move.

Considering Kee has no interest in the NPPL, why would any of their teams continue to play in it? Wouldn't surprise me if Infamous moved along too.

Doesn't Rich Telford own part of the NPPL? I feel that this move had a lot to do with sponsorship and less to do with the team desire. The fact is they were a top team in the NPPL actually making money. If KEE is pulling teams, then who will be left? Xfactor, Aftershock?

Bye bye NPPL. Hopefully a newer/upgraded league will take its place, but still follow the slower paced speedball action.

If KEE teams want to play in the NPPL I believe the team has to fund it themselves. I also believe that Xfactor and Valken have a paint deal for the NPPL and Shock no longer plays the NPPL.

Same thought here. As for teams left, Xfactor plays both. You have Vendetta, Legend, Arsenal, Dynasty, Avalanche, Infamous, and then which ever new pro teams are coming up that still have to make announcements.

If Phoenix Contact intends to play again you have them as well, Houston Heat also made a brief appearance although I doubt they will play again.

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.
