As someone that played the snake during 15 bps. I don’t miss it. I don’t care what anyone says getting hit 6 times during a bunkering, because the guy pulled the trigger twice at me, was horrible. Also it was scary for new players.

We should have kept it at 12.5 bps.

I mean, when you play front and get bunkered now you still get shot 4-6 times

I think bunkering back in the day has too much rose-tined glasses tbh.

Bunkering or overshooting has been largely the same (for better or worse for specific players) over the years. 15bps was not as awesome as some people want to remember it as imo; it did live through two eras of hoppers though, the end of lids and beginning of speed feeds (game changer and thank god), but 15bps shot through a pod way too quick to be practical imo despite those layouts of the era producing quicker points in certain times depending on the layout/division.

10.2 to me is perfect for how were playing right now; a hopper lasts long enough; there is a percentage chance someone wont make it through your lane; gun battling feels pretty much like semi auto. 12.5 is where a lot of people wish to be and thats not too terrible although not a fan. True semi is the best move since cheater boards have largely left behind and i think policing methods of semi could be a thing.

anyways... yepp

You missed the part about the guy pulling the trigger twice. Usual they didnít do that and you got shot a lot more. Go watch old videos and you can count how many times you see people getting hunkered and their back is just covered in hits.

I know it really wasnt a world cup kinda year and we were just lucky to a second event in.

But i find it abysmal that PBN to date still hasnt posted a congrats to Dynasty on here for their cup win. Usually this is done within minutes of the finals ending. Has PBN just given up? Is a changing of the guard needed?

John is literally the only one who actively admins the site and hes known to be a HUGE Impact fan, thats why he didn't post anything.

JK, I'm sure he's just busy and something like that isn't a priority.

Nobody went ahead and made a thread for it either, there's no rule saying only Admins/Mods can do that. I'm sure if someone had he could've easily made a front page post about it.

Yeah, but I bet you also felt superhuman when you torpedoed through those 15 bps lanes into the snake (I know I did).

Didn't Tweeter do that with this thread? The very first comment on this thread is DYNASTY wins in bold. Then Tweeter goes on to do a great daily overview of the event. It seems more than sufficient to me.

That is true. I remember running and diving and just the air was full of paint. You used to be a real gamble running to the snake otb.

I dont know about you, but I generally don't read the OP more than once, especially on a 10 page thread.

Pretty sure John stopped caring about PBn as soon as vertical scope laid him off due to COVID and he just stole the PBn Instagram and social media to start pushing his PB retro stuff.

I’ve echoed it forever, this site didn’t die because “sOciAL mEdiA” it died because the owner chose milking a slow death over just revamping and modernizing the website with live chat, better BST, direct image upload, etc. they stayed in 2004 technology and wondered why it went to ****.

I mean MCB probably spent like $500 to redo the site when it went down and they have all those above features so it can’t be because of cost like the ownership always echoes

I agree with oc rage, I don’t go back to the op once a thread has taken off.

We used to create a thread for the every event winner. With a write up. I do enough in the luxe and air forums plus graphic design isn’t my thing or else I would. I just feel dynasty deserves it.

I will admit I have no idea how John runs this site and it isn't any of my business. In the past when an event was over there was usually a thread stating who the winner was or the thread about the event was changed to acknowledge the winner. Is that something John just did on his own or did the NXL pay for that news up? I was very surprised to see the Virginia exhibition on YouTube and there was no newsup about it on PBNation. I came across it by accident. It seems the NXL has cut back on any advertisement on PBNation. When I have a question about the site I usually just send John a private message. He responds about 80% of the time. I have gotten snarky with him but he is very diplomatic and seems like a pretty good dude.

John isn't involved with PBN anymore. He now runs PBretro, so I wouldn't expect anything like that anymore unless someone else in the community steps up and does it.

Yup, no real write up about World Cup, No Word Cup Field Layout, and No Write up of the winner of World cup this year.

I guess it must be true that John is no longer looking after PBN.

Did you see the original post in this thread? I gave daily updates each morning of World Cup, announced the winner their, listed the new products, etc

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.
