Seems odd given the travel restrictions going on right now.

Yea but after checking the Russian Embassy website for travel, it seems that as long as foreigners entering Russia show a negative COVID test three days prior to entering, they are allowed vice versa. I could have also misinterpreted some of the information so don't take this as gospel or it being correct.

I found it amusing those throwing shade at him as if any SP (and most pros) wouldnt take that opportunity. Its not like hes joining LVL or Outlaws...its the Russian Legion, you say yes to that call 100% of the time.

They could be looking for Americans to mold also, Iím not sure what itís like traveling from Russia to America right now. Either way sounds like a smart move on his part to join.

I’m thinking the Russians lost a player or two

Maybe they are realizing that a full Russian team canít win. So they are doing what they have always done and getting 5 American players so there is a Russian and an American line. Then Sunday you play your best players from both lines together as one line back to back.

6 American players have ever got a win while playing on Legion. I don't believe they've ever won with more than 3 Americans on the roster. They won in 2017 and had no Americans on that roster.

Yeah they've obviously proven over the past couple years they're a winning team with just Russian players, but some change could be good with one addition, one that I would like to see!

Not only is that statistically false but Russia literally beat USA in the Nations Cup in Amsterdam in 2019 (the most recent Nation's Cup). A USA team made of the "best American players" across every Pro USA NXL roster still didn't beat Russian Legion + Federov. Let's be honest, Russian Legion does not need Americans whatsoever.

For what it's worth, the last American to play with Russian Legion was Mykel Kovar in 2013. Since the start of 2018 the entire roster has been Russian, 2014-2017 the team was made up of Russians and a few French players.

Cup 2016 - 2nd
AC 2017 - 1st
Chi 2018 -1st
Cup 2018 - 2nd
Texas 2019 - 1st
Philly 2019 - 2nd
Cup 2019 - 2nd
Vegas 2020 - 2nd

Not to mention NXL Europe 2019 where RL beat Golden State Kings, an American "super team", in the finals twice.

In other words, a full Russian team with all the putin boys together, like Art Chaos, or 2004-2011 Russian legion, is arguably the greatest roster of all time. It’s a shame they get split up between heat and legion, they’re much better together, then they are separated

Indeed, an American who lives in Russia who works for Proshar and plays 0-1 point per tournament. But yes.

Alex Lundqvist as well, even though some folks may say he's Swedish, he's lived in the states since before his time on RL and APPA lists him as American.

Top 5 team years IMO are 2005 Dynasty, 2006 Russian legion, 2011 Dynasty, 2012 Houston heat and 2016 Impact. Who you guys got?

Was Bear Degedio on the winning Russian Legion roster the last year with JRab, Baines, Federov, Mishka, Serge and friends?

Bear played New Jersey with them and I believe they finished second to last that event. I think he only played 5 points or so. Bear can actually play at a higher level back in the day, like d2 or d1. I understand a lot of people talked smack about him playing pro just cus of his dad, but he was actually a lot better then a lot of people knew. Maybe if he had actually 100% committed to paintball as profession, he would have definitely made it.

Ryan greenspans next youtube show is supposed to have breaking news and he’s bringing rusty glaze on. I don’t see rusty rostered for Florida so I wonder if he’s calling it quits

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.
