Do it, do it, do it!
The UK refs, and the ones that are normally at CPPS are great humans, especially when compared to those giant russians and lazy americans.
(the russian dudes are actually pretty rad, but those americans...)
As long as this vaccine thing happens in time. I'll be leading my merry band of German (and american/whoever else we get) hooligans to both. We tend to have 2 Div 3, Div 2, and we'll have a Pro team this year as well.
I love the NXL, but gah more Paris events.
Still hoping for a Portugal...
An extremely Merry/Happy Christmas to all. Mod or User, you're all amazing and integral to advancing paintball across the UK/EMEA. Thank you all, I wish you good health, happiness, and much paintball for the new year.
Wow Dynasty mercy rules Impact, and X-Factor squeak out a win against damage after 15 points. I honestly hope x-factor is gassed and Dynasty wins, it would be an incredible 20 year anniversary present to them and an amaaaaazing story.
Whew some amazing games already!
Dynasty on a run and looking good, going up against Impact (missing JRab and all the Canadians) so that should be super close.
Damage vs X-Factor in the semi's as well.
Going to be a great semis and finals. Really looking forward to it.
Wild Dogs looked pretty darn good beating MLK, super fast and aggressive. I had to step away so was really impressed to see the Infamous score.
Lvl doing well too.
Weather conditions looking real rough though.
Paintball Empire Enters Canadian Receivership, U.S. Bankruptcy
Oct. 16, 2020, 10:14 AM
G.I. Sportz and Tippmann will hand reins to receiver in Canada
The paintball equipment maker also files bankruptcy in U.S.
G.I. Sportz Inc. and affiliate Tippmann Sports, the...
Russell from ICC event just posted a video, stating that Tim passed from complications due to COVID-19. He complained of a headache and went to the hospital. Autopsy will reveal more, but it is due to complications from COVID-19.
36 years old and very healthy, COVID took him from us.
Absolutely stunned by the news last night. A couple different folks saying he went to the hospital with a headache and never came out. Either way, it's just a crushing loss for the paintball community world wide. He brought back the fire and enjoyment of Classic paintball with the ICC. He played...
So Spain is 100% on, and within 2 weeks the NXL will announce (hopefully) another event.
NXL UK is CANCELLED. :(
For 2021, there's a 90% chance that there will be an event in Germany. Hopefully Portugal is on there as well, as they tried pretty hard to get an event there this year but it was...
So EPBF posted a photo on their FB profile saying they're putting all Nation events into the Gandia Spain event.
I personally am not sure that'll still happen, hopeful, but I don't think any form of season will be salvaged in Europe.
We're planning on going to the Croatia cup because Mark...
I do believe there is talk of 2 events for Europe. *maybe* It's being talked about supposedly, but only if teams agree. Not sure how well that'll go over with teams, but at this point I highly doubt there's any events for Europe.
I know there's a couple guys from the Norn that play, but they fly to B'ham to play CPPS. Not sure how much of a scene there is up there, in fact all over the Irish isle its not great. I live in Dublin, and fly to CPPS and NXL to play.
Couple of folks already saying Richmond in the US won't happen. So that'll be 3 out of 5 events in the US left to go on. September and November. Might be late enough to happen. With NXL Europe's last event being (most likely) France in late August...the Euro season may be done.
Time for the...
Scheduled for the last week in May. NXL just released a press statement cancelling Prague event, and keeping a close eye on being able to run the UK event in mid July.
I am cautiously optimistic that that event will still go on. However, I know of industry folks in the US who are planning on...
They may actually close pubs soon. To maintain the social distance thing. Some wanker on twitter called out my local pub for not enforcing it. I'm like...90% of the people in their survived wars and don't give an f about getting sick. So stop blowing up our spot you twatwaffle.
Los Angeles Ironmen
Moscow Red Legion
San Diego Dynasty
Tampa Bay Damage
San Antonio X-Factor
New York Xtreme
Booking for house was fully refundable up until last week. Non-refundable now :(
Flights non-refundable, but appealing anyway.
The government recommended avoiding travel both within and outside Spain and banned indoor gatherings of more than 1,000 people in the regions most affected by the...
Yep, Spain is cancelled. Talk of it maybe being punted until October, but who knows. Season opener in Prague, last week in May.
Super disappointed, but can't say I'm surprised, all of Italy on lockdown, France tightening restrictions. Possible that it happens to more countries, so why take the...
11 years after the last win, they take Vegas.
A-Rod came in and has crushed it and takes the golden barrel.
Slowiak is the anchor they needed.
Taking down X-Factor twice, and the Russians in the final. Wow!
The best part of the whole event, only 1 team went 0-4. Tons of teams...
