I'd take it as more of an effort to bolster the pump division at this venue than a lead up to a product promotion. The low turnout and last minuteness of this makes me doubt it is a premeditated promotion. That's coming from someone extremely skeptical towards any marketing shenanigans such as myself. Though I could be wrong.

That said I think the raised pricing for the division didn't help things. I'll be there but I'm playing Living Legends instead and getting a couple days of play for my money rather than six games.

That could be what I'm missing do they sponsor the event as a whole?

I don't know such stuff!

CPX is the park that NPPL Chicago is played at so assume money is exchanged in some manner.

I know it was a general question to everyone.

If they are the venue then it all makes sense. Call in some big names, give them a deal so they will show up and plan on their attendance drawing more people.

Just having a hard time believeing that the sponsorship (which is a marketing tool) is just to show off and tote how great soft goods and accessories are.
i honestly dont think its a marketing stunt. I think these guys just like to play pump. The ironmen and DYE dont sponsor or endorse the NPPL, nor do they sponsor a team in the NPPL. I think its just a bunch of guys who want some friendly pump competition. Ive seen paxton play pump at a few events.

Dont know what they'll be shooting though

I very well could be wrong on this one, I'm not up to date on any of thise stuff like I said. My business head just keeps telling me that when a company says they are putting a team in an event, there is a reason.

I'm not trying to downplay the importance at all, more teams at a event is always great, good honest players always a big bonus, being able to have some fun and enjoy it a wonderful thing, canceling because of a bad turnout SUCKS.

If this was the goal, It would have had to be done before the registration closed yesterday, the same day they announced it. Dye trailer/crew was also on site yesterday. i just think it was a last minute throw together of some big names that wanted to get some pump action.
