Millennium Series 2015 ... What’s New?




In order to make each event an unforgettable experience, the Millennium have created an Entertainment department to ensure we bring back the fun and festival atmosphere into tournament paintball and build on what we achieved in Chantilly in 2014.

New to Each Event:

  • There will be at each Millennium event a field available where spectators will be able to give paintball a go. This field will also be used to run 3man competitions.
  • Camping will be available at each event to help make playing top end tournament paintball much more affordable and help players with limited budgets.
  • A huge amount of time and money will be spent in promoting our events to the outside Paintball world with the most professional web cast ever, an advertising agency and local promotions.
Rule Changes 2015:

  • Paint: In order to make the game more interesting, appealing to mainstream audiences by making it easier to follow allowing spectators and TV audiences to watch games unfold in a much clearer way, only Lime green (Pantone 375c, 376c, 368c) and Bright orange (Pantone 1505c, 021c, 1585c) shell will be allowed.
New Divisions:

  • Open Division 3 (OD3) – Affordable Paintball. Available to any team which has not played a Millennium event in the last 2 years. Race to 2 format, played on Saturday and Sunday. Price €750 plus VAT, to include 10 boxes of paint.
  • 3-Man. Several formats including 50cal will be played at each event, on the open field. No ID Card required.
Roster Changes 2015:

In 2015 Team Rosters will only be locked in the top 3, locked divisions. Please pay attention to the new seasonal roster limits:

CPL – 10 (no change)
SPL1 – 10 (instead of 12)
SPL2 - 12 (instead of 14)


Event Roster for ALL teams will now be 9 players.

Unlimited roster for ALL unlocked divisions – OD1, OD2, OD3, 3man. This now allows players to SWITCH teams throughout the season, allowing further opportunities for players to attend more events.

N.B – Players can only change teams within the unlocked divisions (OD1, OD2, OD3, 3man)

ID Prices:

ID Card prices remain the same as for 2015, but we will introduce a 1 Event card at €25 or €20 if you pre-register.

Prize Money:

CPL prize money will now be allocated at the end of each event, based on the results from that event as follows:

1st Place - €5000
2nd Place - €3000
3rd Place - €2000

Further Information:

Many people have contacted the Millennium over the last few days regarding some rules change on the other side of the Atlantic. We want to make clear that we will not be “semi auto only” as the Millennium believe this is an unenforceable rule and very open to abuse.

Regarding coaching, the rule stays the same as previous years. No communication is allowed by anyone (players, coaches, pit crew or any other person) from the designated pit-areas and fenced area near the netting from the spectator’s side, to the active field of play during any team points or matches. (Article 8.9.1).

However, we still encourage spectators to support their favourite team and we believe that the atmosphere from grandstands on the spectator’s side is very important for our sport.

Layouts will continue to be released 4 weeks prior to the event.

If the Millennium is today the best Paintball league in the world, it’s mainly because we have continuously tried to put on the best show possible, but also to be the fairest and most competitive series for teams. We believe that all rules should be applied to all divisions as we are all playing the same game.

Lets together make 2015 a true festival of Paintball, enjoyable for all, but with true and fair competition.

1 event ID = fantastic! only played campaign this year in the end so kinda sucked having to splash out for the full season. I'm sure for the massive number of teams that will only play their local event this will be a big help. especially when you see the volume of british/french teams that only play campaign/world cup.

This has to be a good move by millennium. Hopefully we see teams take advantage of it, unlike the breakout division this year at Mills.

If you camp at the event, and the unlimited roster, it can be quite cheap per person per team per event.

I love these changes especially with the PSP seemingly taken a step backwards with their changes and not knowing the answers to half of the questions asked during the interview with pbnation.
Mills is really impressive and has a whole lot of people in the states hoping to fly over to take part.

Saw the pbnation thread and the people States side are impressed. I saw some rumours about the webcast also. Wonder if they are true.

If this doesn't make you shed a tear or understand and look at someone like " yea right?!" Then you haven't been there.

Hmm, wonder if that's something they had in the modeling program or it's actually coming up next year.

I always hated playing cones, like a bad cross between a dorito and a can. Never big enough, and bounce shots can be nasty.
