Can we have a paintball match on ice? I want to see someone dive and slide all the way to the opposite end while shooting people.

OK, there's lots to love about this.

I really miss all the one off events like Skyball, the Memphis Indoor, Splat-1's Knoxville Championships, Ultimate Madness, Cash Bash, Aruba Madness, Mardi Gras and others. They were great events that were just fun. Less stress because there was no season championship. No season rankings. And it was an opportunity to play up a division and take a chance.

I would LOVE to see at least one throw-together Pro team of known players who don't usually get to play together. Dynapact? Ironkids? A new Image?

I would LOVE to see one Pro team field two squads that have to eventually face each other.

I would LOVE to see some non-Pro guys step up and play against the pros for a shot at cash and glory.

I would LOVE to see some experienced Divisional guys play up a division or two and see what it's like.

Will teams play against other divisions? Is this true 5-man?

This has all the potential in the world.What would you guys like to see that could differentiate this from a regular event?

They gave away Mustangs one time. And you would have had to beat Dynasty to win them. But more people didn't necessarily play those big prize events. Also, everyone who played for Mustangs HAD to use a Spdyer. It's not like it was a normal event.

I do know that the SAME GUY who put on some of those legendary events that gave away cars is the one in charge of the NXL now. I know Tom Cole would LOVE to do bigger and badder events. But if you don't support when they try something different, then don't expect more.

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.
