Amsterdam Heat 2 To Play in Semi-Pro Paintball League
"As of 2012 the second squad from Amsterdam Heat will embark upon a whole new adventure leading them far away from Division 2 of the Millennium Series. Even though the team did not perform the way they had hoped in 2011, we feel confident enough to take the huge step into the slaughterhouse that is the Millennium Series Semi-Pro League.
Knowing things won’t come easy in the SPL division, the team is doing everything in its power to prepare itself for the struggle that lies ahead. With the right crew, hard work and the support of paintballsupplies.nl and Planet Eclipse we strive to do great things."

Rule Modification Announcement for 2012 and 2013 Seasons
The EPBF has 2 rule modifications for the 2012 season, which the Millennium Series has accepted and will implement for their 2012 Events. A further 2 rule modifications will be implemented for the 2013 season.
For 2012 Season:
No communication is allowed by anyone from the designated staging area to the active field of play during any team points or matches.
This means no pit side coaching will be allowed anymore. Teams, managers, pit crew or any other person will not be allowed to coach from the pit area. Teams violating this rule will be penalised in accordance with existing rules.
For 2012 any players false starting by removing the barrel of the gun from the start gate before the start signal is given, will NOT be automatically pulled from the point, as long as they immediately return it to the gate (touch back).
Even if the signal goes before they have retuned it, they may still return the barrel to the gate (touch back) and then can continue. If they fail to return the barrel to the gate (touch back) either before or after the start signal is given, they will be eliminated.
If, however, a player posts their marker or fires it before the start signal regardless as to whether they later touch back, they will be eliminated in the normal manner.
For 2013 Season:
The colour yellow is prohibited on any players equipment or clothing, except that a player's jersey, pants, gloves or shoes may have yellow, so long as no part of the yellow colouring is more than 0.25 cm from some other colour, and no more than 10% of any 5cm by 5cm square on clothing or item is yellow.
For reference purposes, 'yellow' is any colour similar to Pantone colours 101, 102, 107, 108, 109, 116, 3945, 3955, 3965, and 803, although any head judge may prohibit any equipment they believe interferes with the judges' ability to officiate effectively.
Paintballs may NOT contain PINK, RED, or ORANGE fill.
In future The EPBF will be setting organised time lines for the consideration of any rule changes by the rules committee via National Federations, and will in any case, announce by November 2012 for the 2013 and 2014 season . Announcements on the procedure will be placed on the EBPF website in due course.
