FPPL is three man and 65 round limit. I'd say change it to:

1st: 3 pumps
2nd: 3 masks
3rd: 3 Cases of premium paint
4th: Free Entry

I wish that were the case, but the FPPL is on hiatus for now.

Either way, whether or not the FPPL is still up and functioning, the FXBL is trying to provide an alternative league for pump players. I encourage people to support both leagues.

I think four man would make the tournament more appealing, and more fun. With 3man you usually dont see people making busty moves that just break open the game, because there isnt much cover fire and because if they get shot well then the other team just rolls them over. Therefor 4man would make them games more exciting.

wow you guys must really be resistant to change out there. You want 65 in lieu of 60 rounds, 4 peeps instead of 3. Our OSC tourneys out here are 3 man 40 rounds. All formats, 3, 4, or 5 man are completely different styles of play. 3 man is best cause there is a higher potential for more players. instead of 1 five man team, you can use your alt. and make 2 3 man teams

Thats fine and well, but if you got one player that doesnt cover your tapes. . . they will run you down easy. And the trick with three man. . . what happens when they run to the 50 as well and keep going, bunker you and one of the sides. Before you know it you got a two on one situation. 30 seconds into the game. And field layout doesnt always allow for huge moves at the start. Good luck with it. Either you are really cocky or you have practiced a lot at 3 man and have stuff down to a science.

you play a 2 man split to both tapes, send one down the center. it allows for crossing it up or tape protection. I play a lot of 3 man. Like i said before Fppl is 3man. So i am reffering to the last season i played.

I am not being cocky, just know many crazy moves can happen at the 50. You won't be seeing it from me this next season unless i get more mobility.
