In Topic: Any Scenarios Like This?

I have never played a game with three or more (About equal in size) fractions does it provide a much different paintball Scenario experience?


I'm playing my first one in just over a month, I'll let you know how it goes. Others have definitely enjoyed it though and said that it provides a different experience.

The Fort put on by Shoreline has 4 factions.

Tippmann Challenge UK has 8 factions.

Cheers!

Pretty sure you don't need a license in France, I'm playing there in 2 months lol.

In Topic: RedBull does not support Paintball AT ALL?

Right, I realize I'm a little bit late to the party, but oh well!

Now if you look at his proposal, it doesn't exactly scream professional or beneficial to Red Bull to be a part of.

He is missing some key parts to his proposal/request.

1) Size of events
2) Demographic of players
3) How Red Bull can help them (Whether it be funding, just Red Bull's presence using a tent and Red Bull girls, etc.)
4) Most importantly HOW THEY CAN HELP RED BULL. Branding on the events (websites, posters, banners, all media)

Now I don't believe what Tyger is saying at all. The problem with Coca-Cola is that paintball doesn't fit into their brand. If you look at Pepsi Co. branding vs. Coca-Cola branding, it's completely different.

Coca-Cola is all about the family atmosphere, nostalgia, bubbly fun stuff. Pepsi is about the crazy, over the top, fun. So if any of the soft-drink/soda/pop companies were to sponsor an event, it would most likely be Pepsi Co. and they'd most likely do it under the Mountain Dew brand.

Trying to say that certain personalities in paintball have poisoned the well is ludicrous. I don't see companies shying away from sponsoring sports in the X-Games, and if you think the personalities there are any different than paintball, you're dead wrong.

It's all in how you pitch it. If you come off unprofessional and not showing what you can offer them, they'll turn you down instantly, but pitch a creative idea to them and they'll probably open their ears a bit more. (See Crashed Ice, Flugtag, etc.)
