It is a X-ball format sideline coaching it is a big part of x-ball.
As for the ramping part it is difficult beacuse that means buying handheld radar guns for during the game to make sure their is no cheating and the chronos are not cheap. But their is a chance that it could become ramping in the future? Maybe? The 7-10 minute games is you have to have a staging area right their at the field witch means air also and it is difficult to get air at the fields without spending $$$$ alot of $$$$$$. IT is also a one day event with the 7-10min games it would be a 2-day event at least. But all these things will be considered for following events. Just starting out do not want to bite-off more than they can handle.

Xball would be a fun format but would take some skill outa the game...
Ramping 15 cap, but no sideline coaching
And make it 10 minute matches that would be the ****...

Thats just my opinion

There are a couple of attractions for the league (IPPS). Its @ one place so the long drives for some, aren't as much of an issue.
The other is the obvious opposit of what B**** Mower said. My team has already played 4 events of the CTS and its looking like our chances of winning it are slim to none. Why not get a fresh start @ a different series?

Xball isn't xball without coaching.

Why make matches 10 minutes? If the match goes to the limit there will be 9 points played. I don't think anyone can play 9 games in 10 minutes.

ya everyone complains because of the wait in between games in the cts. all this would do is make more complaints.

i think it should be a 7 man series not a 5 man. cts and the old icc were both 5 man and i think that a 7 man series would change it up some and people would like it.

Have we figured out the playing format yet? Who the ref squad is? How many games? Series prizes?
I am interested in entering a team or two.
P.S. Nice Rules page. Looks familiar.
Peace,
Cleebart

Tried and failed.

Midwest Xball is a growing thing; I could see a lot of teams interested if it is xball format.

While 7 man is still pball and fun, don't go 7 man there will be a lack of teams.
Any 5 man format is easier to play and will bring more teams.

I wish we could do at least one 7-man event around here, not a series obviously...just a single once or twice a year kinda thing...I know there was something like that awhile back...

7 man would be nifty, just because there is no real opportunity for most Indiana teams to try 7 man without driving out of state.

If there is an event, don't expect there to be more than 10 teams though. It's hard enough for most Indiana teams to get organized enough for 5 man.

If there were only eight teams, then they could do a round-robin with the top two going on to play a best of 3, it might be alot of paint though...since I haven't gotten much 7man experience, I don't know how much more you'd use...

The OTE used to run a 7man series, however in the latter years the number of teams dropped off and with other factors lead to the demise of this series. It was fun as hell to play and we won a ****load of regs from that series...

I believe all individuals who are "sponsered" By heat will not be allowed to play the events. They will be running them.

Correct me if this has changed since I was informed of this early on in the development of the series.
