You're a big enough fan of the NXL to go to every event they have had, but not a big enough fan to go to the NXL website and look at the schedule??? You have been around long enough to know that this site is dead and you should not be relying on it for any useful news updates. This day and age it's best to follow the source directly. If you don't want to use social media then go the their website and sign up for email updates. Companies aren't going to waste time or money posting on a dying forum.

The schedule has been out for a while now. It is also the same time as last years event, not sure how you wouldn't have known. I get the point, but I think the last place they should sink money for advertisement for the event is PBN. Would be smarter to advertise locally to try and draw outsiders.

Tickets for what? You could watch ALL the fields for free. If VIP and the stands were sold out, you could still watch the Pro field.

The schedule has been out all year. And the NPPL isn't back.

LOL, I actually sponsored the Astra event and I have no idea who you are. I glanced and all I see is you posting negative things.

I notice you weren't able to contradict anything I said. But if you don't like the NXL, don't play it. No one cares if you don't. If you hate it so much, why are you trying to spend money there? Or promote you once played it with your NXL badge? You literally could watch every division for free and you're still complaining they wouldn't "sell you a ticket."

Better yet, start working with someone who is doing it better.

And RIP Country Club for sure. I helped lay the turf down in there for free. Most miserable couple days of my life, but I guess it goes towards what I said above. Stop whining and start building up the guys doing it better.

Got to talking with others there and concur there was less than 1% outside paintball family/friends spectators there. Its not drawing people to events its turning them away….. Im in a huge rush to bring the family to the next one &#x1f923;&#x1f923;&#x1f602;&#x1f602;&#x1f602;&#x1f 602;
The stands were literally free to get into. This is just an outright lie or you talked to someone that wasnt an NXL staffer. In terms of booths, they were pretty much all open until like 7ish pm on Friday and Saturday, and they tend to start to close down after divisional finals start because the vast majority of the people they are selling to are gone and they have long trips and work ahead of them to break down booths and ship them out.

I still ask this same question every time, why does paintball need to be a spectator sport? Can it just be fun to play and for the players? Why do we need people to watch us play glorified tag? I never see people in other niche sports complain about this. Why did paintball earn the right? Why does it deserve hoards of non-players? The problem people dont absorb about paintball is that its super fun with a low entry barrier. Why the hell would you only be a spectator if you can grab a gun and go play it?

Wha? The NXL and its social media put out about 1000 posts advertising the schedules with daily updates. The schedule for this event has been active since February 2021 and on the NXL website. If your saying you missed it because the NXL didn't post to PBN, a long dying internet forum, thats on you lol.

Chicago, for all of paintball history, has been the historically weakest event in any series to ever go there. It's far from both costs, and normally towards the end of the year when most guys are trying to save money for cup. I see you didn't reference any of the the first two events or regionals that had really strong turnouts because it didn't fit your narrative. We all have our NXL gripes, but to just spew nonsense is also dumb.

Raney hurt his back at the end of the Revo game.

He tried to give it a go in the finals but his body wasn't having it.

Congrats to Dynasty! Enjoyed seeing the "old" guys do well!

My favorite part though, was seeing newer/underdogs playing in the quarter finals (Revo, Uprising, NRG, and LVL). Congrats to them as well!

I realize the schedule has been out for a year. I just don't follow paintball that closely anymore. This is where I come to get paintball info. As cheater, I mean Tweeter said, that is on me. It is a bummer that companies don't advertise on this website any longer but ultimately it saves me money so no big deal. I was just venting.

Want to know the biggest difference I see in the paintball/video game/sports communities?

People *****ing online.

The focus used to be on what was fun and cool about these activities but as the internet has become more and more popular and people become more and more sedentary and miserable in their own lives, they come online to attack one another, businesses and leagues so they can feel better for a second instead of actually taking action.

Just something to think about before you want to come say something rotten to people that are trying to enjoy something.

Dynasty and Xfactor are my 2 favorite teams, so I'm glad they both had a chance to fight for the trophy. Back in WC20 I was rooting for Dynasty, so this time I wanted Xfactor to lift the trophy, so I'm a tiny bit bummed they didn't but its all ok because I still love Dynasty lol.

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.
