What an awesome event.
It's impossible, he still has his team of lawyers throw cease and disist orders and patent infringement claims in front of him to block the shots.

I do wonder what the gun rules are going to be. Those first seven world cups were a different time.

Wonder no more. As per the HCPL rule book on the site:

Quote:
GEAR WORN OR CARRIED

4.0 CLOTHING
4.01 Each player may wear only one layer of underclothing beneath jersey and pants.
4.02 Each player must wear only one long sleeved jersey and one pair of full length pants
(i) which are not over sized;
(ii) which are not made from highly absorbent material such as felt or fleece or of a highly padded or slick
material such as nylon or rubber;
(iii) the colors of which cannot be any shade of orange or red.
4.03 Players may wear a single pair of gloves, with or without full fingers. Gloves may be padded.
4.04 Players may wear single layer nylon neck protection.
4.05 Players may wear headgear which does not extend more than one inch below the collarbone or below the
shoulder blades.

4.1 PROTECTIVE GEAR
4.11 Players must wear goggles, full face and ear mask systems manufactured for use in paintball games which are in
good repair and with lenses not in any way damaged. These systems must meet or exceed ASTM standards.
4.12 Players may wear unmodified forearm, elbow, knee and shin protection over or under clothing. Male players may
wear groin protection, and female players may wear breast protection.4.2

MARKERS
4.21 Players may carry into a game and use only one 68 caliber pump or semiautomatic marker or an electronic
marker with a rate of fire capped at 10.5 balls a second or less, and which has a single barrel and a single action
trigger. Where applicable, the force needed to pull the trigger of the marker must exceed the bounce back force
of the trigger caused by the expenditure of the paintball, eliminating the possibility of a bouncing trigger.
4.22 All markers with any form of external velocity adjusters must be modified in such a way so that the velocity
adjuster is not readily accessible during the course of play. All regulators require tournament caps so that they
cannot be adjusted without a tool with the marker gassed or degassed.
4.23 Barrels may be equipped with porting, slots and/or rifling, but may not have a sound suppressor attached or an
integral part of the construction
4.24 Cloth, neoprene or other material may be used to cover the air tanks attached to the markers.
4.25 Barrel bags must be used off the field of play and away from the chronographing areas.

4.3 PAINT
4.31 Only 68 caliber paint shall be used.
4.32 Paint must be non-staining and water water soluble.
4.33 Red paint is prohibited.

4.4 OTHER EQUIPMENT
4.41 Players may carry any number of paint pouches, clips or loaders.
4.42 Players may carry one hand towel or washcloth, provided it is not orange, red or black.
4.43 Players may carry any number of squeegies and swabs.
4.44 Players may carry anti-fog cloths or spray.
4.45 Players may have just one compressed air or CO2 tank certified for use as of the dates of the tournament.

4.5 PROHIBITED EQUIPMENT
4.51 Prohibited equipment includes, without limitation, listening devices, any form of electronic surveillance, incendiary
devices, smoke producing devices, red paint, paint which contains toxins or pathogens, paint with a shell or fill
altered or augmented in any way or paint which is not biodegradable.
4.52 Markers or other equipment not in conformity with the provisions of Section 4.2 are prohibited.
No first strikes and no .50 cal.

Quote:
single action trigger
I take that to mean semi-only.

And no groin protection for women. I find that slightly odd, but whatever. It will be interesting to see their definition of "non-oversized" jersey and pants.

No FSR? That's a shame.

That means I cannot use a Splatmaster Rapide, a BE Poison or Barracuda or an AGA .62. (no rule against .62 caliber, so I could use a SMG-60 if I had fresh paint)
The Crossman 3357 is out twice, with a double-action trigger and being 50 cal.


Now I have a list of markers to bring.

I love you Jim.
Nothing like the "Creative Rules Interpretation" you get with us old guys.

You gotta be careful with Jerry, he's been known to "amend the rules" during the tournament......

I know Jerry...and some of his "amendments" all too well.

Sometimes the tail wags the dog.

I honestly can't see this being all that much of a thing. It's going to be the same guns we see now, just with the boards turned down another 2 BPS from NPPL settings. Woodsball fields and actually playing CTF are nice, though!

^^^Which reminds me, will these fields be sizeable enough to maneuver, or is it going to be speedball in the woods?

My guess is that they will try and set them up similar to the ESPN matches. Roughly rectangular, some small undergrowth, but open enough to catch Youngblood bunkering someone.
