The NXL is switching to allow fully auto markers in competition.   However, the BPS is now limited to 14 BPS...  I would have to turn the Tippmann down, LOL!!

Thoughts?

Well, wouldn't full auto mean that bounce and such would be eliminated?

yes acually it would. I would like to know the NXL's reason for doing this, but it seems kinda smart.

And im with dave, semi is faster, for me anyway, along with most pros as well.

Probably, And I bet we'll start seeing Tippmanns in paintball more because of the reliability and tippmanns will do 14 and so will everyone else.

Many people are HK, but there is only one Gatyr, and Gator, and both guys are pimp(sorry, but Mr. glaze is awsome).

And i highly doubt that anyone playing x-ball will want to use a tippmann. The 98 is way to long, the A-5 has that huge hoper on the side, and there are othere reasons as to why the 98 and a-5 will never be used on that level, cept by TE or some tippmann sponsored team.

so can they still use uncaped semi?

If that is the case nobody will use full auto anyway.

*edit* nevermind didnt whole thread lol.

I think thats dumb to allow full auto, but I think lowering the cap is good (even though I love shooting fast), It seems their goal is to make it even faster though, now people can run full speed while sweet spoting a bunker.

COME ON PPL DONT LISTEN TO THIS FOOL

do you have any proof. i think he just made it up.

its supid how could you ever enforce a max of 14bps no ref could tell diff between 14 and 18 it would be way to hard and stupid.

find proof then i will believe you

*EDIT* and ill tell you one thing if this is true more ppl are going to leave the nxl. mimia effect already has and a few other teams might to. you do know that is only 9 teams in the nxl. NPPL and PSP are way bigger and better any way.

Same; i don't see how this would benefit the sport at
all....

It would lower the amount of skill involved (shooting, snap
shooting, etc.), it would actually lower the appeal for
spectators....and the NXL is designed to be a spectator sport, it
would make these high ends virtually useless, and, in the end,
have people buying less paint.

I'm with Dave all the way on this one...
Shenanigans!
