I dont think it has ever been fair, but to put it in perspective this would be the same as if the New England Patriots/New York Yankees/Miami Heat/whatever top level team missed out on the playoffs due to a technicality, then the rules get scrutinized. But when the Raiders/Cubs/whatever constantly low level team gets screwed by a technicality, then it isn't a big deal.

Paintball wise, Dynasty is the star team. They're always the ones to make the headlines, and not without reason. They're one of the stronger teams and with their rich history, it is a pretty big deal for them, of all teams, to not play top level cup.

Call me crazy, but I think that is what he meant by saying world cup. May have forgotten the word champion. Use your brain here

I agree the only legit teams in the challengers are infamous, shock, and dynasty. The rest don't really stand a chance in the champs division. Honestly 187 is not a real contender either, I would say the same for vicious but they did manage a 2 in Dallas.

im pretty sure having back to back weddings the last two weekends during their "practice time," didn't help at all. penalties killed this team. if you noticed, they lost 4 games by 1 point. and every single game, they got AT LEAST 2 or 3 penalties....

Seems like someone is always on the road, that's gotta affect practice and team mojo

I managed to make my wife a Dynasty fan and we were going to go to cup to see Dynasty compete for the cup but now she doesnt want to go.
In all honestly Spicka is totally detrimental to the team. Oliver Lang calls him his "baby" but he needs to let go Spicka is just a penalty magnet and when hes not getting penalty's hes not doing anything. Need more players like Glenn Takemoto who are just clutch as can be when the team needs you

ya, watch oliver and ryan just pull another player like glen right out of their *****.....they have no other option. spicka is good sometimes, he's just inconsistent. i've said this before and i'll say it again. dynasty should get marcello....i really don't see the ironmen going anywhere, and i can see the core of dynasty retiring with in the next couple of years. they just need 1 more super star...this season has been crazy. i **** ton of good teams have been relegated...heat, xfactor, infamous, art chaos, and now dynasty? you can't sleep on anyone in the champions bracket. even upton beat art chaos.

The implied change where the bottom Champs play a game against the top Challengers to determine placement within Champs for the next event (ie. VFTDB) should be reconsidered (ie. instead of the usual top go up, bottom go down). The current format is hard on the Champs teams, but better overall for the talent quality found among the Champs/Challengers division as a whole. Honestly, the only people complaining about the current format are the Champ "regulars" (ie. Blute) who feel threatened by the Challengers breathing down their necks. I say keep it the same. The cream will rise, every event will be entertaining, and the overall quality of talent will only rise. You keep what you kill and you have to earn that kill. The Champs division isn't about inflating the egos of the current members. It's about who's determining who the best race-to format players are in the world. Period.

It's obvious, IMO, that even one event where a Challenger team faces the "dogs of war" in the Champs division is a team defining moment for the better. They'll likely lose, but they'll get a taste so that they only come back harder and better. Which can only benefit the audience more.

Reconsider PSP.......reconsider.
You are absolutely correct!

The PSP is getting enriched in a major way currently, in terms of teams all over the US starting to believe they can make it.

Consequently, In a few years we will see a lot more teams at national level, if the current promotion/relegation system is kept in place, and possibly even extended downwards to lower divisions.

People that talk of yearly promotion/relegation, or champs playing off against challengers, don't get it.... paintball is more exiting than ever these days, to play and to watch, because there is so much at stake every Sunday, every event.

- and teams like Revo are proving to Paintball America, that it CAN be done, you CAN get to play WC with your boys, if you work hard for it.... and it doesn't have to take 6 years to get there.

It would be the biggest mistake ever, if the PSP was to slow the development they have started, because some veteran teams and their owners fear for their standing in the game.

- as for playing games Thursday before the event to decide which division you play: No go in my book.... you need the time to prepare for an event, if you want to hack it at Pro level.... it would be unfair to leave it to Thursday night, for some teams to know who they are playing.

SUCKS to see Dynasty move down, but they will not be going out like that... watch them make a big comeback next year, and then see a lot of the veterans retire after winning the WC

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.
