It?s a brand new season. And as usual, Facefull delivers the goods: A full Millennium and NPPL season preview, the world league project and the newest gear available from today?s best paintball manufacturers.
Spray and pray
Following the online battle between Alex Fraige (Dynasty) and Rich Telford (XSV), we?ve decided to let them go head to head in Facefull magazine, giving Alex his own Speaker?s corner, entitled the B Side. From teams buying slots in the NPPL to how X-Ball killed the star player, you get the best pro coverage from all angles.
3G is coming
This issue also features an exclusive interview with Arthur Chang, CEO of the Kingman group, who spills on the industry slump, the aggressive competition and how he plans on revolutionizing the paintball industry with his new 3G Spyders. And speaking of gear, you?ll find tests of the new Kingman Spyder MR2, the Viewloader Vlocity, the Empire
Fuel system and one of today?s best goggle systems: the Proto Axis. Yes, our tech writers were busy, also giving you one of the most compelling tech features on the Evolution of Markers over time, and the manufacturer?s marketing strategy in keeping you wanting more, every single year.
The Star Fucker syndrome
We here at Facefull love star power. Possibly even more than the NPPL. That?s why we?ve landed an exclusive interview with vice world Formula One champion Eddie Irvine on his new passion for paintball. But the biggest surprise is a behind the scenes look at the #1 movie at the box office this weekend: Failure to Launch. Why? Because between all the things your girlfriend will want to see, you?ll find the best produced recreation of a paintball tournament. You?ll see the first pictures of Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker wearing NXE gear and playing paintball in this top grossing Hollywood movie. And that?s more exposure than both ESPN and the UAPL are getting, Dick Clark or no Dick Clark. You?ll find a full feature with exclusive interviews with the scriptwriters and producers and find out how this scene even came about.
You dream it, we make it happen.
