Last year we broke the news that the NPPL/PSP pro paintball merger was off of the table. Throughout the merger discussions, rumors circulated that the paintball manufactures were hoping to scale down the number of events in a season so that they could more effectively market paintball and support the teams competing. As you can only imagine, rolling several semi-trucks loaded with paintball gear and staff to 10 or 12 different locations is a costly endeavor.

Rumors have circulated as to what direction Empire Paintball, GI Sports, Valken, Procaps, Planet Eclipse and others were taking in the 2012 paintball season. The following press release landed in our inbox moments ago confirming Empire Paintball’s direction.

What are your thoughts on this paintball news?

Playing regularly since 1997. Competed in local, regional, national and international paintball series. Founded and lead Long Beach State to a National Collegiate Championship victory. Proudly banned from the NPPL after legitimately winning a 5 on 1. Have since made it a hobby to promote paintball and at the same time make a point to call out paintball industry shenanigans and those that intentionally impede the growth of paintball.
