In an agreement reached today, Lucky Paintball has agreed to sponsor the CFOA Tournament Series. Lucky’s rapidly growing selection of quality paintball products will be offered as prizes at every CFOA event in 2007.

“Lucky has truly come out of nowhere to redefine the definition of what a high performance piece of paintball equipment is,” stated Joshua D. Silverman, Director of Marketing and Sponsorship for the CFOA. “Lucky?s products perform well enough to be used by top players, yet deliver that kind of quality at an affordable price. Performance and affordability is a combination any player can love and I know Lucky will be a hit within the CFOA!”

The world?s largest producer of five-man paintball tournaments, the CFOA will promote five-man, X-Ball and scenario-based ten-man woodsball events during the 2007 season.

Lucky Paintball does its best to offer quality products at an affordable price. We figure if you spend less on gear then you can play more paintball, so it just makes sense that Lucky Paintball supports the CFOA. We are excited to get some Lucky prizes to CFOA teams and help expose more players to products and events that don?t break the bank,” stated Sonny Lopez, Director of Marketing of Lucky Paintball. Online at and featuring an exclusive dedicated forum on PbNation, no paintball company is as accessible to retail and wholesale customers as Lucky.

RAP4 :: Tactical Ten Paintball League

by on Feb.02, 2007, under Events, News, Press Releases, Tournaments

Real Action Paintball is proud to announce the Tactical Ten Paintball League (TTPL), a tactical paintball competitive league. The TTPL competitions employ real-life tactics from SWAT and Special Forces teams, and many elite units around the world. This is tactical paintball at it best—as real as it gets!

The TTPL was formed by paintball team Undertakers, and RAP4. Hercules Papadogiannis, team captain of the Undertakers, is the main force behind the TTPL, and is the man who’s responsible for bringing the league together.

The TTPL follows a 10 on 10 format, with each team allowed to roster as many or as few players as they choose. Teams may even choose to field three members to compete instead of ten, if that’s their fancy! Since some teams works better in a small squads, the choice is left up to them!

Each game consists of two 45 minute halves. Each side takes turns attacking and defending, while accomplishing one major objective per team. A scoring system awards and subtracts points according to objectives completed or failed. Certain roles, such as a team commander, team medic, team sniper, and team demolition man, are in effect.

The TTPL is about taking scenario-style competition to the next level, and allowing each team to use their true tactical skills. This game is not about spraying and praying, because each player’s hopper (or magazine) is limited to only 50 rounds. Additionally, each marker used in the competition must be semi automatic only.

The TTPL’s first annual competition will be will at Pyro’s Production on November 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. For more information about the league, please visit
