Wouldn't you rather be playing on one day, and have the other day to look at the city, watch games, etc? Plus if your "one day" was on Saturday the whole leaving on friday thing.
poor choice IMO.
its not a vacation, its a paintball tournament that people spend a lot of money to attend. with the 2 day prelims, you usually are schedule to play all the in morning on all the afternoon on a day, so its not like you waste the day, there is plenty of time to soak up the city and watch games...
and this is only for HB for now... the middle events are more regional focused and since they are being hosted at actual paintball fields they can probably squeeze everyone into a 1 day prelim for those events, who knows. HB being the premier event at a premier location it makes sense to keep it 2 days.
