The Xball format is sweet to play, but the entire CXBL organization is a gigantic money pit. Especially now, with less Elite teams and the addition of RT5, players are going to be stuck paying $80/case for 15 cases/match forever, as only Elite teams have the chance for BYOP and paint deals.
Well actually the other divisional teams can get deals, they just have to ref the events. Which brings in the issue of having teams reffing the same league that they play..
Also, there's more or less no prizes, the teams I talked to last season who went to NAX and had to play another season's worth of matches to win their $3000 sure must have loved having the extra event and thousands of dollars in paint costs for extra games forced on them.
You do get a ton of playing time, but you're also paying out the *** for it.
For the cost of playing MXL and lower divisions, teams might as well head to the states if they can afford the travel. 5 months til the next PSP event, I'm jacked.
