Note: Hmmm... so much money involved, but in one of the worst location ever. Why not KL? This is where paintball is.

Sadly, it isn't true here. This has happened before. Big event, in the middle of nowhere, budget into millions, somebody comes out with thicker wallet for sure.

And these pro players (if it does happened) are paid to come and play.

Sigh. What's Persatuan Paintball Malaysia role in this one?

The issue that could happen is weather and accommodation. Dont the organizers know that Dec is the rainy season for east coast, together with frequent strong winds. The gotta be prepared to play in the rain and strong wind , and with those rains, spectators wont even come out in droves.

Accommodation wise...... there isnt even a decent hotel in Pekan. Nearest is in kuantan, and it could take about an hour just to reach Pekan from there.
