The 3rd stop in the 2008 NPPL season brings us to Buffalo, New York. This event has a total of 106 teams registered, as compared to the overwhelming 220 at NPPL Hunington Beach and 125 teams at NPPL Jacksonville. This is to be expected though as the third event (previously located in Boston) has traditionally had a smaller turn out.
Divisional Players that flew via AirTran were stuck in Atlanta for over 5 hours. Some players / entire teams ended up being flown into Rochester, NY rather than the original destination. Many of them received free tickets after being bused in to the event. If you haven’t already, take advantage of this opportunity to get a free airline ticket to NPPL #4 located in Houston, Texas.
On day 1 of the event we heard several reports of games running rather smoothly. The event has a total of 4 Fields (traditionally its been 5 or 6 fields) and a small vendor area. For one reason or another the reknown NXL Ref’s didn’t make it back. Captain Carls Ref crew came back and is reffing on the Spyder field. Guy and his GPL refs are running the angel field. Games are said to be running on time and no “crazy” complaints on either fields.
Team Petra has been having a rough time. This is the 2nd event in a row that they have received a 6 game suspension for a ramping marker. Gun was never taken to the robot (no robot at the event). Ego was cycling down (out of air) and thus not technically “playable”, but penalty was assessed anyhow. Many of the players are former Mantis players.
Be sure to check back for PBRESERVE’s “LIVE, FROM BUFFALO!” coverage of Saturday & Sunday’s matches.
Players & readers rejoice, ProPaintball is about to UPGRADE! With NPPL Buffalo we will be rolling out several new phases to our project.
1. NPPL Center Court Photography
- The infamous Kyle Johnson (formerly of PB2X & Chrono300) has teamed up with ProPaintball and will be shooting the event. Make sure you say hello!
- For those of you at home – Kyle will be shooting from some crazy angles and bringing a new style to the screen. Photos will be uploaded each day of the event for you to check out and stay current.
2. Daily Event Coverage
- We will have daily reports, photos of new gear, and a no-bs assessment of the event.
Best of all..it doesn’t cost you a dime!
Do us a favor though, show some love and add us to your signature, link us from your teams website, and most importantly, tell your friends!

After a very successful first season on FOX Sports Net last fall, Xtreme Paintball: Beyond the Paint is ready to bring you an entire new set of episodes starting Tuesday, July 1st!
Xtreme Paintball Season 1 made its debut on Fox Sports Net (FSN) October 2, 2007. The season consisted of 13 episodes which aired weekly through the end of 2007. Not only are all thirteen episodes now available on DVD, but eight of these episodes re-aired nationwide to 89 million households on FSN earlier this summer. These re-runs are a fantastic lead in to the launch of Xtreme Paintball Season 2 which will begin airing Tuesdays at 4:30 pm on FSN July 1st and will run until September 22nd.
The second season will consist of 13 all new episodes featuring deeper story lines on NPPL Professional and Semi-Professional players, intense game action from the NPPL as well as a look at the recreational side of the sport. Viewers will find that the production team put much more emphasis on the action portion of the episodes this season. With wider camera angles, better graphics to help first-time viewers follow the game and additional footage from the NPPL All-Stars Game and the NPPL Skills Challenge, there are plenty of new elements to make everyone tune in for more.
Sponsors for this year’s season of Xtreme Paintball are Spyder, KEE, Rockstar Energy Drink, the United States Marines Corps and JT Sports. We thank each of these supporters for their commitment to the show and encourage each of you to thank them for making this second season possible.

PROPAINTBALL Exclusive: Flux by GANGSTAR PB
The great guys behind Gangstar paintball (remember that vlocity chip that everyone and their mother has been trying to knock off?) sent us a note about the new FLUX pack. From the looks of things its pretty darn impressive, a speedy recharge time of only 90 minutes, over 5 cases per charge and best of all, its plug and play (meaning zero installation).
Stay tuned, we will have a hands on review next week.
