Just saw this on my old teams forum and wondered what you lot reckon basicly we usually head out to Mahlweinkel(sp) for what I think is the best game in Europe. The Germans were always a bit touchy with paintball with official FPS limit of 217. and you have to have the guns stamped to take them into the country so they can be traced back to you.

 However the Euro big game itself has been cast into doubt after the powers that be have proposed to ban the following.

Quote - Wearing Military or Paramilitary clothing
- Using markers that look like real weapons, ak,mp5 etc etc. i. S. d. WaffG sind
- The use of red paintballs
- The use of paintballs that contain no colour (reballs)
- Differentiating between "lethal" and "non-lethal" hits.
- The use of utensils in Game: which could be seen as based on a military,police or military practise.
ex, use of bunkers, but also for personal equip. such as Tac-vests, steel helmets, walky talkys,
This also goes for such things as smoke bombs + grenades.

Generally to keep the play as non military and non police as possible.

- The use of Land-, Water- or air vehicals during and before and after the game.
- The playing in a non secured area without marshals present (this one seems to be a little bit openly written...)
- Running of a game which imitates police or military training / simulations
- people under 18 playing
- letting outsiders see the equipment.
- playing in the Dark or under fake lighting at night UNLESS it is completely lit up by fake light during the whole night play with a constant light intensity.

This has been bouncing around for a while.

Crazy Germans, starting world wars and banning paintball.
