hey guys, just saw on NPPL's website that they no longer have 5 events, their back to the normal 4 locations and events. Anyone know what happened?

earlier this year it was Surf City, Chicago, Vancouver, DC, and Vegas. it looks like they dropped Vancouver.

Meh I'd rather not play in a series where I can only use china ball (Valken) or some paint I've never heard of (APX). I mean if they atleast had Pro Caps or hell even G.I. that'd be ok and even most preferred RPS/Empire.

IT's just not something I trust. Evil even says it on the box, it's won more tournaments than any other in the sport. Have I ever heard a complaint about Evil? No. Valken? Yes. APX? Yes. GI? Not Quite. DXS? No.<br><br>Good paint wins. Bad paint loses. You simply can't win with bad paint. I've seen non breaking Valken. I've seen awesome Valken. I've seen stuff that won't even go through a gun without breaking.<br><br><br>

I will have to agree with him here. We get fresh skids of valken every month and there very hit or miss. Were trying to switch soon.

Yup the NPPL fucked up once again. They refuse to update anyone and its been 37 minutes since it was supposed to start. Same thing that seems to happen every event.

Well it is finally up. Better late then never i guess.

The camera quality is horrendous! Keeps cutting out, lagging and going pixelated for me. Not sure if It's just me but it's a pain in the ass. And the announcers suck compared to the PSP. :P

Yeah this webcast does not have shit on PSP. Not to mention this new "race to" format is terrible. It might as well be the same thing.

Mhmm, I agree. I have never been fond of the NPPL. They better step their game up or they will be the ones risking bankruptcy.

At 3:20:20 they tell that bad weather made a mess and that's the reason for the webcast gone bad.

From watching it for a while now i agree. Quite a lot of "pixelation", especially at the dang wrong moments :P You hear the crowd yelling and the commentator go "Wooow!" while you get to watch the very special special effects.
And then there was this guy siting allmost in front of the camera for a while eating... something. Then he disappears for a few games before showing up again, this time rocking a hoodie taking up even more screen space.
But at least the games was really nice, i enjoyed what i got to watch.

PSP webcast is fast approaching "f**k tv, we doin' mah own thang!" pro level. If they manage 720p i could have a quite nice evening watching the games in my living room.
The thing NPPL is doing better is releasing the whole day on youtube, you do not need to hunt around for the games (big thumb up for that one).
