besides rooting on all your favorite pros on the same team (like a 20 man lineup and they alternate 7's) im sure theyd have fun with it and maybe get to see some locals beat the pros
You're connfusing two different things... There was the WPL that did a 3-man Xball-style thing and used a bunch of pro teams. The Smart Parts Championship or whatever was a bunch of Smart Parts teams (A few made up just for the event) plus like XSV and maybe one other team. They did regular Xball, but without an X.

IMO it would just mix it up a little bit i mean i know a guy who owns a local shop and he has a video of his team beating dynasty so it would just show how "pro" some team really is

Smart Parts filmed a tournament, consisting of mostly Smart Parts-sponsored teams, in addition to XSV and New York Extreme (?). It was the X-ball format without an X in the middle, and it used semi auto. With the exception of all the Smart Parts advertisements, the show itself was of good quality. There were plenty of camera angles and the overall product was very professional.

The WPL/UAPL was a 3-man series filmed in Vegas. While there was a nice mix of pro players, there were even a few D3/4 teams playing. I know this because the field I used to work at was the home field for Chicago Resistance, the same team seen on that show. The layout for that show was great and it was actually a pretty decent program. It was aired on WGN back in 2005ish.

not a lot of people can say they have played with/against pros so it would make it well worth your entry money into the tourney

an electronic spyder with a revy is the most comparable thing to semi-auto.
your fingers are moving just as fast with an ego but it shoots 3 times as fast in semi auto, does that make sense?

It wouldn't be worth the Pro's entry money.

umm I'm afraid no, the smart parts world championship was semi auto, NOT ramping, like most xball
they said it about twice during each match and you can tell cause people didn't reload as much as nxl

Must be nice to be so positively wrong.

It was semi-auto.
