In Topic: Has techpb officially died?

Hahaha ah, well in that case I hope all is well.



Yeah, sadly old forum culture is becoming a thing of the past because of pages like FB and Reddit. I've met some awesome people (like in real life and stuff) because of this forum, and I'm thankful it has presented me the opportunity to do so. Here's to TechPB, for what is was, what it is, and what it will continue to be, regardless the forums.

Be quiet Dev.

First time I've logged in since I can't remember, and I see a newbie saying this to Dev. My heart is happy.  ^_^


Forums have been dying in general for years. As FB groups have taken off, forum activity has drastically declined. What's funny is some of the biggest FB Paintball groups have been started/have grown because of members of TechPB. Look at Orange and the various Canadian groups, or Kevin and the Parabolic/Flex groups for example. As sad as it is to say, TechPB as a forum will probably die. However, TechPB in spirit and on the field is what will continue to live on. Mike and TechPB go hand-in-hand, and as long as he is still playing, there will still be "TechPB," whether or not the forums exist is irrelevant.


I'm sad to say I've recently sold a majority of my old equipment because I haven't played for nearly two years. Life's circumstances have put other things ahead of Paintball for now. I know I'll come back to pump play in the future, but for now I'm on the final stretch of a degree and internship. I hope to be out on a field somewhere in the next year or so =/
