cup this year was a joke. it was at my local field, they couldn't even afford to rent a venue like they had in years past.

and the best part, through some pissing match that valken got into/started with kee, you couldnt buy ANYTHING from empire at the event, not even a lense.. and the store section of the field was also banned from selling anything that wasnt a valken product.. "oh, sorry your e-flex lense got damaged, can i interest you in a pair of pro-fits?"

sadly, the NPPL has been circling the drain for years.. which is a shame because im not a fan of tournaments anymore thanks to ramping

Meh. Not surprising based on what I've read/heard for the past few years. Hopefully whatever fills the vacuum will be a little more, you know, professional. That's if there's a vacuum to fill.

They didn't "suck up" to "The Man", so they were blacklisted. Not the first time.
After I walked out way back in the early nineties for things just like this, I used to call it "The NPBNL": "The National Paintball Brown Nosers League"

Remember when "The Cup" promised $100,000.00 to the winner, but the winner only got $15,000.00? The winning team said "What the farts? Where's out hundred grand?" The "league" claimed that the lower than advertised payout was due to lack of team participation. The team had to smile and take it, or face blacklisting for making the "league" look bad.
Not much mention of that in Paintball History today, the "league" was powerful enough to perform "revisionist history" with the facts. That fact was just swept under the carpet
After that, "The Cup" would advertise "$100,000.00 in total cash and prizes".

Stuff like coming in fifth would get you 10 Stingrays and 10 cases of low-grade paint. Meanwhile your team shelled out over two grand in entrance fees and paint, not to mention airfare, meals, hotels, and rental cars, plus when you flew, your guns ALWAYS got jacked by baggage handlers, and jerk-off's at the "Splat Tables" would mark hits on your uniform with black "Sharpie" marker, so you'd need to replace them too.

Plus at its basic it is a war game, which is a no no for an accepted global competition.
And the cost is a definite issue.

Ah memories.

I've never really understoof the obsession iwth getting paintball into the Olympics, we're really not an Olympic sport. I could see us in the X Games maybe but a game about shooting each other played on the international level? Doesn't really go with the Olympic theme.

Yea but boxing was an original Greek Olympic sport and has a long history. We don't have that luxury.
