ATWL Expands to New Brunswick

The <a href="" target="_blank">Tippmann X7 Phenom Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League (ATWL)</a> is excited to announce that, for the first time in league history the league is expanding outside Nova Scotia. The ATWL has come to an agreement with Mission Paintball and Outdoor Adventure in Moncton, New Brunswick where ATWL Event 3 will be played on September 22, 2012.
League Commissioner Bruce Johnston couldn't be happier about the move to a neighbouring province. "From its inception the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League was meant to be a league for all of the players in the Maritimes." Johnston continued "This is the second season teams from New Brunswick have played the league. The support from New Brunswick is there so it makes sense to expand our list of official fields to include Mission Paintball."
Josh Gastelum Manager of Mission Paintball and Outdoor Adventure was glad an agreement could be reached and the ATWL brought to Moncton. "We feel that the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League is making all the right moves in both the format of play and the expansion to New Brunswick." Gastelum continued "We hope that this is the first event of what will be a long relationship between the ATWL and Mission Paintball."
Mission Paintball has long been a hot spot for tournament play, producing some of the best players and teams in the region including the 2011CXBL Eastern Conference Champion Strict Union. Moving toward a tactical /scenario play is new for Mission, but the scenario field created will make for new and exciting play for ATWL teams.
Josh Gastelum is sure the players of the ATWL will enjoy the new field, "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase our dynamic urban village to the players of the ATWL. The environment we have created is like nothing the players have encountered in Atlantic Canada."
The ATWL is currently in the sixth season of play. The league has proven its value to the players, because of the stability brought by a dynamic management team who are willing to listen to and give the players what they want.
Thanks to the generous support of <a href="" target="_blank">Tippmann Sports</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">PBL Action Sports</a>, the team owners and most of all the players, the Tippmann X7 Phenom Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League is excited to expand to Mission Paintball in Moncton and become a true league of Atlantic Canada.

Crossovers Break Into Tournament Paintball

Tippmann Crossover The Tippinators Paintball Team from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, are very proud to be the Canadian Factory Team for Tippmann Sports. As such the Tippinators are asked to test prototype markers and give real world feedback to the design team at Tippmann.

Tippmann Sports has produced high quality paintball markers like the 98, SL68, Pro Carbine, A5, Phenom, and FT-12 for over 25 years. These markers are some of the most rugged and reliable on the market. Now Tippmann ruggedness, reliability and quality have been put into the first paintball marker designed for any style of play with the all new Crossover.

The Crossover a sleek, lightweight, center feed marker that embodies woodsball durability with tournament speed and agility was most recently tested by the Tippinators. The marker is smaller than any other made by Tippmann and is of comparable size to other tournament markers.

After the testing was complete, the team received an order of Crossovers just in time for the start of the tournament season. The Tippinators planned to put these first production run markers to the ultimate test and to be the first team to take the Crossover into rigors of league xball.

Crossover In Action The fast pace of each point, and the chaos in the pits between points, over the course of a 50 minute xball match puts stress on seasoned players, and proved equipment. The Tippinators planned to take the untried Crossovers into competitive xball play after only one practice to get familiar with the new markers.

Canadian Xtreme Paintball League’s Atlantic Division MXL Event 1 held on June 23rd, 2012 at Armymans Paintball in Truro Nova Scotia was the first opportunity for the Tippinators to give the Crossovers a real test.

Tippinator Ken Gardiner a six year xball veteran of the CXBL, AXBL and MXL was impressed with the performance of the Crossover. "I have had the opportunity to have used a wide variety of markers from all of the leading manufacturers over the past six years. This year I was handed a Tippmann Crossover right out of the box with only an adjustment to fire mode and rate of fire." Gardiner said "The marker chrono’d consistently within 7 fps and ran smoothly, point in and point out, for the entire day."

The markers preformed magnificently for the entire team. CXBL event paint for the 2012 season is GI Sportz 4 Star Tournament Grade, in the past the Tippinators would not be able to shoot such brittle paint in their high pressure 98s. Ten players used Crossovers for the day, shooting a total of 22 cases of paint without an issue. Every Tippinator who played with a Crossover was impressed with the markers performance.

Chris Landry Battling with a Crossover Gardiner summed up the feelings of the entire team, "The performance of the marker allowing me to make eliminations early in points, shoot tight lines and hold lanes to lock down zones. The Crossover performed as well, if not better than, markers valued at over $1000."

The Tippmann Crossover’s first step into the world of tournament paintball was an unqualified success. Tippinator Captain Bruce Johnston offered a different insight into the Crossover, "If this marker can keep an average player like myself in the game a little longer, I shudder to think what a truly talented player would be able to do with a Crossover in their hands."
