Are they doing that just so the top teams show up next year? Are they hoping that a team forgets or breaks up by then? Are they hoping that the price of the tanks drop by then? Or are they just going to use some of the money made off of event#1 in 2011 to pay for the previous years series prizes? I have no idea.
If your all even planning on putting on the MPS series you need to do some major restructuring on how the series is ran. You all act like it is a big problem and a hassle to put on these events. Frankly I don't see what you all really do except, write a rule book and book fields to have events, and come up with game schedules, and decide on prizes. "My Internet isn't working" isn't a good excusse not to get on here and give teams updates about what's going on. 4 in 5 homes have Internet. As an event promoter it's a resposibility to keep teams informed. Changing the format or giving better prizes will not change your team turnout. There are some other major things that need to be worked on. Some teams are smarter than you all think. The teams that you are going to get to show up at every event look for more than just a good prize package. They look at how the event is structured. I won't send any of my teams to an event that has an awesome prize package but is ran terribly. All I'm really saying is the series needs some major work to be a success next year.
I typed this on on my iPhone so if some doesn't make sence or has typos....my bad.
It is not the players fault that the mps was not promoted correctly... with that being said... I am sorry your turn out was low... I truly am...BUT....
We held up our end of the deal... Played every event, spent money at every event( even when we won we barely broke even).... NOW please hold up your end of the bargain.
You can do so by shipping the series prizes for Kick'n Factory "level" 2 series champions to me directly at
