I'm always curious about this topic with the NXL. Even more curious with the non-season we've had this year.
I want to say Tom said there would be and regulation this year on the PTG podcast but that could just have been an idea on his part.

I couldn’t imagine they would do this. How could they justify sending down a pro team with essentially only one real event on the year, since WC is a bit restricted with some Pro teams unable to bring in players from Canada and overseas.

Same without SP. Promotion is all about weeding out the bad teams and having the best possible team be promoted there could be a team that got pummeled in Vegas, and win WC and get promoted based on points with only two event s

I have been in discussions with Nick Slowiak about jumping on to play with them for cup.


The discussion went as follows:

Me: “Can I play Cup with you?”
Slowiak: “No.”

Not to derail the thread, but in the context of the point above, I think it'd be sweet if rosters were based off a points total similar to what they had implemented in the ICPL. That way you could potentially see pro teams with experienced pros (with very high points totals) playing alongside guys ranked SP or even D1 to balance out said totals. That'd be cool, I think.

I saw somewhere that there was a good chance they weren’t going.

Unfortunately I have to practice drinking for 10-man this weekend instead. I’m sure there will be other chubby 30 year old divisional players going 2-2 in the prelims at regional tournaments you can choose from though.

Uprising opted out and decided not to play Cup.

If a chubby 30 y/o divisional player is good you should see what kind of damage a 40 y/o who hasn't played xball in 15 years could do. And by damage I mean to the bar tab.

This is why I think relegation and promotion will not happen. Cant expect teams to risk their health just to keep their pro spot or earn in.

They need to either bring back champs and challengers brackets, or make a semi pro division between d1 and pro. I can think of a few teams off the top of my head that have no business being in the pro division. Back when the psp was doing the champions division, you literally couldn’t count out any team and I watched most of the matches. Now I don’t even watch 50% of them, so many blow outs now.

Correct. I confirmed there is no promotion or relegation this season in the pro division of the NXL.

I just happened to look at team rosters for Cup. A few days ago Ironmen didn't have any players listed and today A Rod is listed on the Ironmen roster?

I've only heard from Ironmen players that Arod said he was leaving for Impact. Has anyone heard something official from either camp?

Only from Mouse in his interview on gosports. He said Arod will be playing with them and that he got permission to announce it to everyone during the interview.

Not sure how contracts and everything played out with this scuffed season.

Sounds like Uprising opted out of Cup due to Covid precautions.

He hasn’t made an announcement. He’s probably embarrassed

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.
