Agreed. The Big Indian website has zero information as to what the event registration is. The person they have as the contct for information ships you right over to APPA. You HAVE to go to APPA to even view the registration cutoff date, which is February 19th, 2013 by 11:59 PM EST at the latest. Theres only 3 teams signed up for each D4 or D5 and only 1 of the D5 teams has even paid. On top of that, theres no information as to the layout or when it will be released.
Take all three of these issues into account and it makes it extremely unlikely that players will choose this event. We're looking to bring out 2 to 3 lines but not if our 2 to 3 lines are going to be playing against each other the entire event. If the management at the event is handled anywhere near as poorly as information is being conveyed, how can you expect a turnout? At the very least, release a field layout and change the BPS rate to 12.5 . It is a PSP ruled event so 12.5 is standard per the PSP guidelines and ruling. See the following link -
It states Section 188.8.131.52. "May fire no more than one paintball within 80 milliseconds (12.5 bps)".
Albeit this is stated as a guideline
, it is a suggested fire rate and 98-100% of open running tournaments and series running under the APPA use a 12.5 BPS.
