MSXL Announcing Major Upgrades for 2012

With the successful addition of RaceTo 2 at the 2011 Regional Championship round we have agreed to make these needed improvements going into 2012 and beyond.

We have made arrangements to provide a full-time PSP certified ref staff at each 2012 event.
This is a long time over due and should ad an increased level of consistency to our series.
This should be done in a manner that only increases entry a very small amount if any.
Keeping the MSXL the most affordable Regional Championship Series remains our primary goal!!!


Also we are adopting a rule that teams will be required to shoot paint from MSXL approved paint manufactures exclusively. We already have DXS on board and will offer a promotional package to all other major manufacturers similar to what PSP offers and ask for them to help support our league and keep paintball affordable. This will help keep the players cost to participate down. If a manufacturer doesn't want to show support for the MSXL and our teams we done want to support them by allowing them to profit from paint sales to you to be used at our events.

More to come.

Sure you can bring your own paint as long as your paint manufacturer cares enough about you to help keep your event cost down by supporting your league.

I think what Tapper is trying to emphasize is that if the paint manufacturers will not endorse a tournament circuit that will spread to the growth of the sport, and marketing on their behalf, then why would you want to support their company?

Just to be clear. I am 100% against FPO.

The fact remains the MSXL has to rely on outside support to keep entries and event cost the most affordable. If we are shooting 1000-1200 cases an event as we have as a whole, that's a huge profit for the paint manufacturers. Of that only 3-4 hundred being purchased at the event, we are going backwards fast.

The other 7-8 skids are being purchased by teams through their local fields which is great!!! But no benefit to the league and keeping you entries and event cost down.

Tell your paint sponsor you want them to support the MSXL. I promise their support will be VERY affordable and a great promotional asset.

You have the right idea here Darin. I can not attend the event this weekend due to school, but I look forward to playing future events.

Tapper, good move on the reffing staff! as far as the paint sponsors go...damn good idea attempting to get more on board and growing the league. most of them have no idea just how much this league has grown in just 3 years time and still growing. great job...see you this weekend!

I assume the plan is to keep the prize package "Race to Cup" for 2012 but has there been any consideration into changing that?? Its odd that this tournament is being held at one of the better fields I've played and were only at 5 teams for D4... Then you go back to March and there were 13 teams in Memphis for D4.

I think if you want to consistently have good turnouts at events the MSXL will have to start offering something at each event worth the teams while.

Obviously it would cost more to give prize packages at each individual event but it shows when there is something to play for the teams will show up. Once they have played themselves out of the chance to win the package the teams fade away.

I agree with having bigger prizes at each individual event. How about adding D2X also?
