Dynasty
Ironmen

South/central

AC diesel

Damage
ML Kings

Eastern
NYX
Revo
NRG

Hopefully we can get back to paintball.

I’m not sure the Russians will be making it but the event will still go on. There also may be challenges for other players that are out of the country. Aftermath is in the East because they are based out of the Midwest rather then what there name suggests kind of like infamous.

I think that most of the players are from the MW and they are taking travel and restrictions into consideration.

Kind of off topic, but is there any reason that teams do this?

I think because the teams originated from there. SDA was based out of San Diego, and LA Infamous started in LA.

I think they based it more on travel then anything else. It’s easier say for TMG who is from Indiana to drive to the mid Atlantic then it is for them to drive to Texas for an event.

I know there is trademarks and legal reasons but I would love for LA Infamous to change their name to Detroit Infamous.

Or no one wants to pay the 5k price tag. Thats why Revo is still Revo.

Infamous was originally called Miami effect because back in the early days (2003) each paintball team needed a city to be “marketable” regardless of if they lived there or not because of the TV deal. They later became known as infamous because they broke a rule the original NXL had about playing other leagues. Even though they are “LA” infamous the actual players are from Maine, Wisconsin, and various other states

Aftermath used to be from SD but those guys slowly left the team and got replaced by Chicago based players from Breakout Paintball Field

Seattle thunder There are many guys that’s fly into the northwest for practice but they’re not actually living there. Home Field is Diamond Hill Paintball

New York Xtreme plays at Matt's Outback, a great field in Connecticut

Seattle Uprising is mostly Portland based. Home Field is Impact Action Sports

Edmonton Impact is mostly American players except Josh, Justin and the Yachimec brothers

Baltimore Revo slowly but surely became full of the Boston area players from Upton 187 Crew but kept the name to avoid a $5,000 fee to change a Pro Paintball team name

Houston Heat is full of Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Russian players

San Antonio Xfactor is pretty true to the city name. Home field is Xfactor

Moscow/Russian Legion is pretty true to city name. They have a private field.

MLKings are mostly Florida players. The European version of the team is pretty geographically correct from what I know. I believe they practice at Central Florida Paintball

San Diego Dynasty is pretty true to name. The play mostly at Camp Pendelton

LA Ironmen are about 50/50 local and fly-in players from what I know. Home field is Camp Pendelton

Sacramento DMG is true to name. Home Field being Capitol Edge.

Tampa Bay Damage is true to name. Home Field is Central Florida Paintball

Columbus LVL is true to name Home Field is LVLUP Sports.

AC : Dallas is true to name Home Field is PBFIT.

AC : Diesel isn't named after a city but is also based out of PBFIT.

TRADEMYGUN Outlaws aren't based on a city but on GoSports they're called Ft Wayne Outlaws because their home field is Paintball Plex.

NRG Elite isn't named after a city but they live in Wisconsin, Virginia and a couple other spots from what I know. Home Field is CSP Paintball

Thank you. I'm amazed at how many people are still confused by this.

Also, I think this could be massive. Yall go see your local pro teams play and turn this **** into a spectator sport.

I started caring about pro pb in ~2005, and I've heard about the origin of the Infamous name, but honestly I'm not sure I could have produced that exact detail without a hint. They've been around for so long that it's easy to just consider them a legacy team, at least in my own head. It might be different had I been more than a rental player in '03.

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.
