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!
yoo know what makes me really mad ppl will believe him just cuzs he platinum when plainy he dosnt know. ah well

News flash:
He's platinum for being really helpful, giving good advice, and
knowing his stuff.

My guess is that Rico was either badly-informed, or that he's
trying to pull a fast one on us....
If the latter is the case, then: I'M ON TO YOU, RICO!

Well, i dont see how it could hurt the sport at all, nor how it would lower the amount of skill needed. It shouldnt affect the snap shooting skills needed to play such a high level of ball, the shooting would be the same, just a tad bit slower. And i dont see how it would lower the apeal for the great game that is x-ball. I watch to see people like Gator and Olie and mr lasoya play, not hear or see people shoot just a bit faster than the new cap. And the amount of paint used might decrease, but it will still be in the hudreds of thoughsands of paintballs used at an event for a team, so i dont think the paint companies should be worried about a drop of 15-20 cases a team per event, as much as that may seem.
 
But i can respect asking for a link, so i will too, RICO, WE NEED A LINK!!
 
oh, and i know that chris and Gator dont play in the NXL anymore, but i needed some names to use, and they popped up.

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.

you're calling Rico a fool? ok then...

first: miami effect was bough SP one of the gardner brothers just so that SP could have two teams in the NXL. Now why would he have them pulled out of the NXL if the sole reason he bought them was to have a team in the NXL? And if you mean infamous, well get it right, and dont call people that are smarter than you fools.

Second, its not hard at all to tell the difference between 18 and 14, trust me. I could tell a deffinite difference in my impulse and viking when i started shooting 16 bps intead of 13 with my impulse. And even if it really is that hard for someone to hear, have a ref at the tournament who can actully shoot above 14 bps shoot it over a red chrono. Not to hard to do, even if you cant tell the difference between a gun with 14 and 18 bps.

Third, guess how many teams are alowed to be in on division? 10. And as you(incorrectly) said, there are 9. not to big of a difference.

Fourth, there are ten teams in the NXL. Legacy became the tenth a few months ago.

Man, I step out for a while and peeps start slinging names...

I don't have a link, do you want my source... here it is.  

His name is Blake Pruitt, he used to play for the Detroit FUSION #187, he now plays for the Chicago Aftershock.   He lives in Arlington, TX... his parents own Pruitt Auto Sales in Granbury, TX.   He shoots a clear DM4 with just a touch of cobalt mixed in... he USED to have an Aftershock team ramp board in his marker until yesterday when he came into Awful Paintball and More owned by Eric Hoffman.   Blake used to work for Eric before he started working in the family business.

At the shop, we removed the 'Shock board from his gun, put it in my DM4, took the NEW NXL APPROVED board out of the box that was shipped from the Badlands in Chicago and installed it into his marker.

We then aired his WGP 70ci stubby up and played around with it for 2 tank fulls.   After 2 quick pulls of the trigger, the marker locks into full auto at a rate of 14/15 BPS.  

The reasons given for the cap are:

-  it is very easy to tell if someone is shooting faster and pull them for ramp/bounce/uncapped boards.

-  Overshooting will be pulled back into check

Is that good enough for you FROGMAN?   I wouldn't get on here and say something like this if I didn't have a clue about what was going on.

Full auto can in a way have an advantage, because you will be able to pay attention a lot more, and be more focused on the enemy.

Id just like to say.. Frog Man, you are a
MORON.

PSP and NPPL are bigger and better? Well no DUR.. they are
public series. The NXL is a Franchise. If you want to see more
NXL teams then give some random team 250k to buy a
franchise and play.

Go play some national events, get to know the right people,
then talk like you know your way out of a box.
