Dynasty won't be playing NPPL Chicago - Official Release from the NPPL

Here's the official release from Dynasty and the NPPL:

Quote:

Scheduling conflict prevents Dynasty from attending Windy City Open.

San Diego Dynasty is unable to attend the next NPPL event at Paintball Explosion in Dundee, IL. It’s a crowded schedule this year and with two National events back to back it doesn’t allow proper preparation for both. A high functioning team like Dynasty wants to be at the top of their game and unfortunately missing the next NPPL is the only way to accomplish that.

“Dynasty loves playing paintball and it’s unfortunate we can’t figure out how to attend this next NPPL event and be still be properly prepared to compete at the level we are accustomed. We will continue to show our support for the NPPL and hopefully be invited to attend future events.” Says Dynasty Captain Alex Fraige

“Dynasty is a class act. They are true professionals. When they explained to me their reasoning for not being able to attend the next event I understood. It’s too bad the two events are so close to each other. This year there were only 9 events Professional teams could compete in here in the US. Hopefully next year we can coordinate with the other league so our events aren’t so close to each other.” Says Shawn Walker of PBPromotions.

Although unfortunate we won’t be able to see Dynasty in Chicago, the Pro division still has some of the best in the world competing. From young start up teams like Camp Pendleton Raiders and Fort Wayne Outlaws to industry stalwarts Portland Uprising and New England Avalanche the competition should be fierce.

The Windy City Open is August 9-11th at Paintball Explosion in Dundee, IL is shaping up to be a great event. New lower entry fees for the divisional teams, a new Sat/Sun only division, hotel discounts plus a world class facility that includes an indoor arena, full bar and restaurant on site, and the new Nuke Town paintball field.

Here's my original post:

We've learned that Dynasty doesn't plan to play the Chicago NPPL due to a scheduling conflict with practice for the Riverside PSP event the following weekend. It sounds like they are still open to playing the Las Vegas NPPL if everything works out.

The PSP only releases their layout in time for teams to practice two weekends before each event. The Chicago NPPL at PB Explosion is the weekend before the Riverside PSP which would only allow only one weekend for Dynasty to practice for the next PSP event. Dynasty is currently leading the PSP Pro division and does not want to miss out on the practice. The team actually practiced the Chicago PSP layout at the last NPPL event at OXCC after playing their tournament games, but PBExplosion doesn't have a full size PSP field so it wouldn't be possible to do that again.

We are waiting on an official release from the NPPL.

Thats going to hurt the NPPL...
Hopefully they play in Vegas. As much hate as the NPPL as been getting recently, the last thing you want to see is a league go under.

I wouldn't say that's the same thing as what's happening here though. Missing an event due to a scheduling conflict is not the same as not playing that format again.

I'd say it says something when they value the practice before a PSP event more than the entire NPPL event...

Wise decision on Dynasty's part but unfortunate for NPPL.

Seriously? A team misses an event for a practice and you still have doubt?

Not making Podium first two NPPL events might of helped Dynasty decide not to play Chicago. They raged pretty hard at eachother after losing to Uprising at HB and it looked bad for them. Then they go and smash PSP MAO lol. Its smart for Dynasty to concentrate only on PSP. They are looking ahead towards World Cup, not Vegas.

They like the PSP better. They perform better in the PSP, and the PSP is webcasted ALOT better than the NPPL is. PSP ftw.

It's strange how many nails this coffin seems to have in it before being buried.

Interested to hear if X Factor plan to attend.

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.
