Congrats to them, but how is this possible? They didn't make it out of prelims in Vegas in semipro, had just a single finish in the top 22 last year, and never reached the quarterfinals in 2018. If they need to fill RL's spot, why not TonTon/Camp Factory (1) or even one of Noobies/Blitz/A-Team, the 2/3/4 teams from Vegas?

edit: The portion of this post pertaining to RL is speculative in nature and assumes that travel restrictions might prevent RL from attending any events. Apologies for any prior confusion I may have caused.

Yeah super confusing to me. Noobies has been dominating Semi Pro for a bit now and TonTons are a legitimate pro level team. Makes no sense to give the spot to a terrible SP team.

I don't even think they will get that. Most of what makes a pro team good is the level of experience and years in the pro league and funding, both of which this team is slim on.

I didn’t think they were slim on funding ?

I believe that the plan for 2020 World Cup has been that it would really be representative of the world, and that a couple top teams from NXLEU would join the pro bracket for the event. So I believe this is congruent with the plan to have a more international "World Cup".

I think part of the idea was to have teams from different regions, not just SP teams from the US NXL.

Then why not pull from European pro division? Bring Joy back, Ronholt blast, Breakout spa. There just seemed to be much better/more deserving options here

If I remember right that’s all you had to do to go pro in the original NPPL back in the ‘90s. Drop the extra $1000 or whatever it was for entry and presto you’re a pro team.

Yeah I was thinking there was some concern about whether or not they'd be able to make it to the events due to travel restrictions. I hadn't seen anything definitive - just speculation. Apologies for creating confusion

Let me rephrase that as, they will not be able to buy legit talent for their team.

Agree, I would be pissed if I was a top level EU team or a top D1 US team and I had to see a trash pile bottom of the D1 division team get the Cup spot. This is dumb to be honest, the pro division is about who the best is, not some stupid PR we are the world crap. I don’t think there are many foreign teams sitting going “WOW! A non American team got invited to World Cup for NXL pro and got smashed and wasted a bunch of money to do it”

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.
