I think they only people complaining are those that play the grey areas. That or your too set in your ways. These rules will make paintball a lot more fair in the long run.

thats a good idea not to allow clear hoppers less distracting for refs.

If it makes the refs job easier then it makes the games more fair for you. Unless you are the type of person who believes that everybody should cheat and try to get away with it.

If loosing the clear hopper reduces cheating, then its for the better....thats the end of the story

Cheating is bad, and regardless of how many times you say "its a part of hte game now" it doesnt mean its good...

cheating is bad, just read that a few times and think about it....

Do you complain when you hit someone and they wipe it?

Have you, in recent memory, wiped a hit?

If the answer to the second question is yes, then the answer to the first one needs to be no...you cant ***** about something you do too...Its called hyprocrism, and is equally retarded as cheating...


The only time i view "cheating" as appropriate is in drills.....but only if it doesnt neglect the purpose of the drill...

That is a great qoute that can be applied to many people almost daily. Also, I think that in the long run that will be a good idea. But I also think that with some of hoppers like the Halo B Dust one that is transparent that it is easy to tell if the ball is broken inside or outside. That is the hopper that I use and I think it works well for that kind of situation.

Red and smoke hoppers are allowed. The basic thing is that if you have yellow shells in your hopper and you get hit with a paint that has a yellow fill, the hit is going to be almost impossible to see.

Really, it doesn't affect anyone in this forum. If you have a problem with it, don't play the NPPL, that simple. They can do what they want.

"What.. the Nppl made rules to make it easier to ref? That sucks! No way. Screw refs, cheatings part of the game. WHAAA!" Wow. I didn't know people would cry about it. My only problem would be that I would have to buy a new shell or a new hopper and HALO's are expensive.

I don't think the NPPL is losing any teams over these rules even if they aren't in effect yet, registration is already full a week prior to the event.

The above is correct and as already stated above to diferentiate between a broken shell in the hopper... I know it would suck to be pulled for breaking a ball in the hopper! I say good move makind the ref's job easier... it'll allow for them to make up for other areas they are lacking in! I know cheating is "part of the game" as many have posted but it always sucks when you get pulled for some b.s.
