Smart Parts press release...

Scottish Warriors adopt the SP-1

Leading European scenario team, Scottish Warriors adopt the SP-1 as their primary marker.

Loyalhanna, PA – February 24, 2009 – As the first Smart Parts sponsored scenario team in Europe, the Scottish Warriors have been putting the SP-8 Tactical Marker through its paces in all sorts of environments. Now the team is switching to the newer SP-1

Based in Glasgow, Scotland and captained by Tony Lindsay, the Scottish Warriors travel Europe to find the best scenario games. For the past three years, the Warriors have been doing so as one of the Tactical Squads of the Smart Parts Smart Corps, an elite group of factory sponsored scenario teams.

With their 2009 season including the UK Big Game, two German Big Games in Mahlwinkel and two French Games as well as other events, the Scottish Warriors are easy to spot in their distinctive black SAS gear and Smart Parts Defender pants. Uncommon competitors on the field, this team takes off-field fun to a whole other level and look forward to making new friends within the sport they love.

“The Scottish Warriors are our flagship team in Europe and are looking at expanding their fan base by welcoming all Smart Parts marker shooting players to come to these events and represent the Smart Corps Europe,” said Smart Parts Europe's director of European Affairs, Phil Webb.

Tournament teams nearly destroyed paintball. The industry is on the ropes and now I have another type of team to deal with. Yet another group of players who have turned a game into a battle of supremacy and honor waged by groups of segregated elitist. Yet another group of players I must kindly ask not to attend my Big Games. (And to be fair to Smart Parts, they are just one of many companies supporting and sponsoring scenario teams.)

Wow.

We here in the NW have a lot of "teams" in the scenario world, but for the most part, the competition is friendly and not nearly on any level like it sounds like over there. There are a few teams with big ego's and what not, but we all mostly get along and look forward to slinging paint with and at each other at big games.

Sucks that it isn't like that there. I do worry with all the new "scenario tournaments" that we might be heading that way.

What ever you might think about your NW teams any time you insert a "team" into a game that is suppose to consist of two teams you change the dynamic of the game.

You can stop worrying about scenario teams. They are here. And the down hill slide of scenarios has already begun.

I couldn't agree more Mik. As soon as "teams" are involved in paintball, things start heading in the wrong direction.

It's probably not a real popular opinion, but I see going down the road of big Scenario games as having much in common as the going down the speedball road we, as an industry, have gone down.

I don't have a problem with either forms of paintball but I don't cater to them at our field for a reason. There is only a small percentage of the general population that wants to be involved with anything that intense. Scenario paintball is not going to be the saviour of paintball, just as coming out of the woods and onto small airball fields was not the saviour. Having said that, there is room for all though, in my opinion, just not at the same facility.
