Good eye. The entry fee has been paid since before the first deadline, but it sounds like they decided later they weren't going.

APPA does refunds (minus late fees). So keep watching and see if it changes to "pending."

I say we just raise the FPS limit to 350 and drop the rate of fire to 9 bps. When I was 16, my friends and I played with our markers running around 320-350fps all the time. Most of us had JT pro flex style mask and they can handle that kind of abuse.

what a dumb idea lowering the bps again would be so bunk

See, now we are getting somewhere.

But it's hard to imagine the Tontons not coming back to the PSP for World Cup had the issue at hand never happened.

The biggest issue foreign teams face here is the bias against them and now we go and make it harder for each team from overseas to get fair treatment.

London Tigers complained of biased reffing, so did Joy, and now TONTON.
Amen to that!

The tontons not playing the world cup psp due to financial problems was already known before the fourth event.. But i am sure that the incident did not help..

Guys for a team of 7 and 1 coach, we are talkÓng about 13 to 15 thousend dollars to play world cup..

Was that the penalty point during MAO Ironmen vs Dynasty when they said the Ironmen were not paying attention on PBA? Looks like it, sadly the demand video on PBA is pointing towards Dynasty though so you can't see it.

Edit: Yeah just figured out that this video clip is from the Bloody Knuckles reckoning series and it shows it on there haha. Nice.

They were a great team to watch, and some great players, I hope some of them will come back to guest on other teams.

Seriously, how is everyone over thinking this? Teams cheat. They got caught. They got penalized. Vacating scores from one event isn't the end of the world. Sponsors aren't going to drop them because of it. They weren't in contention for a top 4 finish on the year. The penalty was not nearly as harsh as the public manner in which it was applied. But the PSP weren't the only ones making a very loud and public fuss over this. The PSP weren't the first ones, either, for that matter.

This is undoubtedly why they aren't playing. If they hadn't been caught cheating, or at least hadn't been publicly admonished for it, they'd be at Cup.

I don't know who is in more need of manning up. The team or the fan boys making excuses for them.
I'm surprised by your response, actually.

Imagine if you had a team that was going all the way to Europe where nobody wanted you to come, you're down players, plus you're not even in the race to win anything. Would you blow the money for that? I can't believe the amount of **** these guys get. They're flying across the world to play these events with a limited schedule and budget, yet nobody gives them a lick of credit for it.

American teams do the same exact **** for the Euro leagues anyhow. I saw that Cassidy from HK guested on Infamous for the CPS championship. He doesn't even play tournaments, so how serious could they have been taking it? (not hating on the team here) I'm just saying that it's the same ****, different continent.

Um, what? Ever since this whole ordeal started I can't even count how many people have said they love watching the Ton Tons play at PSP.

I'm sure they have supporters, I don't doubt that, I just see a lot of hate on these forums, facebook, etc. Especially since the hot gun incident.

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.
