Millenium Series at 12 bps!

SPIRIT-OF-PAINT.com - Millennium Series 2008 : Les faits....

It seems that the low BPS movement has reached Europe's Millennium Series! 2008 is shaping up to be a very interesting year for tournament paintball!

I have to admit, I may actually watch some event videos just to see how the PSP and Millennium rule changes work out.

Quote:
First 3 shots in semi auto.
For the rules we will phrase it as "time between two shots initiated not lower than 83ms". This leads to a ROF cap of 12,048. So a reading of 12,0 is legal, 12,1 will be illegal.
No runaway.
Also, get this:

Quote:

shaking hand :

mandatory at the end of the game, front of the spectator.

Shaking hands is a GOOD practice. It may seem odd or even stupid, but it adds to the game, and certainly could help.
And 12bps is good.
Of course, I still prefer NPPL or CFOA (methinks CFOA is semi-only, limited to 15bps). But this looks like a nice start.

I really like the handshake idea. It helps reinforce the idea that paintball is and always has been an honor-based sport.

How about referencing what we all play is just a game, and deserves no hard feelings after the fact?

Sounds interesting. You could go back to using a revvy on most of these guns!

CFOA is ramp. They use straight PSP rules.

Interesting, this is DEFINITELY slower than most people can walk with practice.
Maybe single triggers will make a comeback.

I LOVE watching the millennium series on one4one.tv and will be very interested to see how the 12bps rule works out. As far as walking the trigger that fast, or even going to single triggers, it's not much of a matter in millennium rules as I'm pretty sure they're a 3-pull-to-full-auto IIRC.

So instead of 1500 balls in the air at the whisle it will only be 1200! Man, you could walk around with that low of a number.

In my best Conan voice

In the year 2000, PSP will be offended by Millenium lowering their rate of fire lower and this will set off a arms race resulting in most players picking pump play simply because "It's faster".

In the year 2000, CFOA will realize that shaking hands is not a deep enough gesture and require players to go to the bar together, become old fasioned pen pals, and even get matching dragonfly tattoo's.

In the year 2000, Smart Parts will sue claiming that their guns were designed to break down, effectively lowering the average ROF.
