All three are professional paintball leagues with the NPPL and PSP in the US and Millenium in Europe. As far as rules all im aware of is that NPPL uses straight semi for their markers and PSP and Millenium use different forms of ramping.

PSP rules are pretty lax, but no full auto is allowed, only a certain amount of ramping. Basically you can have no less than 5 pulls (maybe it's 4 now that they've dropped the BPS) to reach the max ROF of 13.33bps (used to be 15.4bps). You can do this kind of format either with a 3-round burst, or by using straight up ramping. This mode resets its shot count (you must pull 3 semi auto shots before the ramping/burst kicks in) after one second.

NXL is very simple... pull three semi auto shots, then hold the fourth for the max ROF of 13.33bps. The same reset for the ramping as the PSP is used. This format is also VERY fast paced and most teams actually use two teams for an event due to the short amount of time between games (I forget exactly what it is, but it's less than 10min, probably closer to 3 or 4).

NPPL is straight-up uncapped semi automatic. There's not much else to it.

Millenium... uh... ****... I forget what that mode is, as it's foreign. I'll look it up for ya in a second here and edit into this post.

Most local tournaments use a break-off of the NPPL rules, normally capping guns at 15.4bps or 13.33bps.
