If you're looking for a new paintball experience, Paintball League of America is the perfect choice. We have a new and unique approach to the game, with innovative gameplay and rules that will challenge you in exciting new ways. Our league is local to Connecticut, New York and New Jersey and we welcome players of all levels to join us. Whether you're a seasoned veteran or a newbie, our friendly and welcoming atmosphere will make you feel right at home.

Standard Elimination

Standard elimination style where you must completely eliminate the other team. If you don't eliminate the other team by the end of the time, both teams lose.

Frenemies Match

Your best friend may soon be your own worst enemy. The top 4 teams will square off together first taking their favorite 3 people on each team and having them bad together. 1st & 4th vs 2nd & 3rd. Whichever teams wins will disband back to their original team to face against their former bestie who helped them win moments earlier.

Capture the Flag with respawn

Ready set go! Go get that flag and bring it back to your own side. If you get out, there is a 1 minute wait to respawn penalty. Run out of paintballs, that's too bad! You should of brought all of the supplies you need onto the field and then some. Remember best 2 out of 3 wins!

Game Time is 5 minutes 4 minute break.

 

Each team can have up to 6 players on their roster.

 

During semi final matches where a win is needed over shooting will cause the individual to have the points penalized on the following tournament. This will cause the team to start negative on points out of the gate for the next tournament.

 

All guns will be set to semi-automatic if a gun is turned on the automatic then it will be a loss giving the other team the victory.

Overshooting/Excessive Shooting

 

Over 4 paintball breaks is considered overshooting. This is per the person shooting them.  

  • 5 shots or more is 2 points that are lost and 1 point goes to the other team

  • 6 shots or more is 3 points that are lost and 1 point goes to the other team

  • 7 shots or more is 5 points that are lost and 1 point goes to the other team

  • If someone that is being shot at is attempting to earn points by intentionally walking into a stream of paint aka “Martyring” will not be penalized nor will the person shooting them. This should be punishment unto itself.

Elimination

Over 4 paintball breaks is considered overshooting. This is per the person shooting them.  Below is a breakout of points lost, with 1 point going to the other team.

  • 5 shots or more is 2 points that are lost 

    • 6 shots or more is 3 points

  • What is considered as being eliminated: Being shot anywhere on the body including anything that is being held or hanging off (harnesses, tubes etc.). Getting hit anywhere in the gun also will eliminate a player.

  • When a player is eliminated they must immediately put their gun over their head yell “Eliminated” or “Elim” for short and proceed off the field to the safe area. From there they must not help either team. They cannot communicate via hand signal, voice, text, code etc to their team about the other team or their teams positions or they risk disqualification and forfeit the round and the next round too.

The top 4 teams will move forward to compete.

 

Once there are 4 teams then they will play a frenemies match where the 1st and the 4th place team play on the same team essentially going from a team of 5 to a team of 6 (3 players from each side) to compete against teams ranked 2nd and 3rd to compete in the finals. Whichever team of 6 wins they will then separate themselves back into their original teams and play against their former allied team.

 

Once the top two teams are left they will play a game of capture the flag.

For higher tiered Tournament Play:

To advance to the next division a first place win is needed.

Once you advance to the next tier you are ineligible to play in the tier league that you just came from for prizes. As a benefit of winning you are allowed to play against the top half of teams with a 50% discount on admission.

To advance to the next league for the first 3 divisions would be a first place win.

 

Once you advance to the next tier you are ineligible to play in the tier league that you just came from for prizes. As a benefit of winning you are allowed to play against the top half of teams with a 50% discount on admission.

Capture the Flag

This is played with a 15 minute time limit. The object is to take the flag that is placed in the middle and bring it back to their own side. During the duration of the game there are no permanent eliminations. Each time someone is eliminated it is for 60 seconds. The time for that starts as soon as they get to the respawn area. Once they have completed the 60 seconds they are allowed to get to the immediate bunker without being eliminated.

 

15 minute stale mate turns to pistols which is 2 minutes at length and best 2 out of 3.

Penalties

Unsportsmanlike Conduct - Anything deemed to be extremely unprofessional and unkind to other players. This will include cursing/profanity, fighting, shooting another player before/after a game has ended. This is not limited to intimidation and threats and anything else that puts the sport in a negative light. Point deductions go from 5 points to additional 5 points in the next tournament to expulsion and banning from the league. 

False Starts - A false start will be a 1 point penalty and will make the other team move 1 giant step forward.

Wiping off Paint - This is a 10 point penalty for the first offense, 20 points for the 2nd offense and expulsion for the 3rd offense and possible banning.

 

Out of Bounds - 5 point penalty, there is no reason why someone is going around the boundaries unless to do something not ethical.

 

Late Start - If a team is not ready for a game then the players that aren’t ready do not play. 

 

Shooting at a dead player - Don’t, if seen shooting on more than one occasion it is a 2 point penalty. This may happen from time to time so if someone is walking off without their gun over their head then it is not necessarily the person’s fault who is shooting at them.

 

Excessive clothing/padding - If it is deemed that there is too much clothing being worn to help prevent paintballs from breaking there will be a 10 point penalty in addition to the removal of clothing. Understanding that in the winter people wear excess layers. This would be in excess of excess.

 

Faking that your out is not allowed and will be penalized by being out the next 2 rounds as well.

If a team has won to the point where they are not eligible to play in the same tournament anymore they can have the option to play without prizes against the best top 6 teams for a discount. The players that are not eligible for prizes will be guaranteed 4 games. 

 

There are no smoke grenades permitted in and there are no listening devices allowed. Using your cell phone to text, zoom, skype, talk etc is prohibited.

 

Tournaments operate under common sense rules. For example it would not be appropriate to run out of bounds and to sneak around the other team to get them out. If it seems like it is unfair or doesn’t make sense it probably won’t fly in our tournaments.
