This post is to answer some basic questions.
Is this an all MilSim league?
This league does not have any strict milsim rules. The reason the league is named milsim is because we use a military ranks system to rank individual players. Many scenario teams out there already name their members Captain, Lieutenant, Sergeant, etc. so we transferred the military ranking system to rank players in this league. It makes sense for a scenario league with scenario teams. The games are based on a scenario and played in the woods with certain objectives to complete. NO strict milsim rules.
Are there uniforms?
When you join you get an ID card, a full set of dog tags and two patches. The patches are not required to play in the Missions. However, if you compete in the Championships, these two patches are required. A league patch and a name patch. Simple and included when you join. There are other patches players earn while playing in the league but players can wear them at their discretion.
Where are the games played?
Across the country
There are about 30 fields right now with more fields signing up each week. You can view the list of Authorized Fields on the website. If there isnít a field near you, post in the Field Request forum and weíll work on it.
When are the games played?
Each Authorized field will hold a Mission Day each month from March to September. Each month will be a different Mission and you can play in one or all of the missions. There are no team entry fees. Just pay what you normally pay when you play paintball, nothing extra like in Big Games or Tournaments.
How does my team participate?
Easy as 1-2-3
1. Go to the league website and submit your team name using the Contact Us form.
2. You will get a Team ID within 24 hours.
3. Contact your field to get on the schedule for the next Mission Day.
Thatís it. Show up, give your Team ID and compete in the games. All of the scores will be posted on the website and teams will be ranked locally, regionally and nationally.
Whatís up with Mines?
We use them
See the About The League page in the section for Demolition objective for more info.
What about prizes?
We have them
There are prizes from our sponsors that league members can win based on battlefield performance.
Why havenít I heard about the league before?
This is the last step. We have been working with field owners and sponsors for the last several months. Itís how we were able to get all the fields for our players. Now the challenge is set and weíre ready to register teams.
Why the Challenge?
This Challenge is held to introduce the league to the paintball community. If you like the league and want to your team to compete in the Championships for a chance at the National Title, become a league member. If not, thanks for trying it out and good luck!
