Dallas questions:
1 pro field?
if more, which will be webcasted? or will the 10 minute break be filled with highlights/realtime footage of the second field?
How many games per team?
Thursday starting time?


I read through most of the thread, I don't think that these questions were mentioned.

Same as always.
Not sure.

Really? I'm pretty sure they said they were throwing down the money for a second field and ref staff. I'd like to think it would also be for Dallas as there is a potential for up to 20 teams*.

*This goes off the fact that I'm aware there was at least one team trying to start up with pro's like Houston Heat did.

So a team can win the first three events without dropping a match, get the flue the week of event #4, and not play in the World Cup because they "didn't qualify?!" Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of circulating talent, but I think a simple "win your in" is too easy of an answer, and will ultimately come up short. Past qualifications need to be addressed as well, so you don't get a fresh D1 team replacing a team like Heat or Damage. That wouldn't be a quality substitute.

He came back talking about how Infamous came back and won, how the Russians were really good, etc. etc. To this day, after just helping us out at 1 event, and not being a player, he's still "liking" posts on our Facebook page about various teams.

So there is definitely a set of guys who will eat up paintball. The problem is they are hard to "reach". It would seem to me the proper crowd for introducing competitive paintball is not ESPN but the various hunting channels (these guys do after all sit for hours (days!?) in a hunting blind waiting for an elk to pass by so they can shoot it, paintball is pretty intense and interesting to that crowd!)
Live is far different than on TV. You can see what's going on live.

Either way I don't see this format change making a lot of people happy once it get's going.

There probably won't be any coverage of the 2nd non-champ field, as that is another big expense on top.

With Dallas as the first event they will only have the existing PSP Pro teams play on one Champions field. All the other teams who want to join will be playing D1 at Dallas. The new Champ/Challenger format will start at the second event. They have to do it this way to figure out which of the 2012 PSP pro teams will play the second event in the challenger division.
I talked with Tom Cole about this before it was made public and he stated that running another Pro field with a Pro crew and PBA coverage would be too expensive at this time. I am 99% sure that the Sunday games for the Challengers will be played on the Champions field with PBA web coverage.

Below is a quote from the PSP press release,

"The PSP Professional teams will compete against each other in the 2013 PSP Dallas Open. The top 10 teams from that event will move on to PSP’s Event #2 and play in the newly established Champions Division. They will perform on the main field for all the glory in front of thousands of fans watching from the PaintballAccess.com webcast and the PSP grandstands.

The other Pro teams from the Dallas Open will be enlisted in a new division known as the Challengers Division. They will be joining other teams to be named at a later date. The group of teams in the Challengers Divisions will use the same format and rules, but play on a secondary Professional field during the prelims and will play their final match on the main field for all their fans to watch. Starting after Event #2, the top two teams from the Challengers Division in each event will move up and compete in the PSP Champions Division for the following event. They will be replacing the bottom 2 finishers from the previous event’s Champions Division, who will instead perform in the Challengers Division. "

I think the PSP would be better if they randomly changed the layout during an event . Or switched formats , like there is a wheel and you either play 5 man xball or 7 man or 10 man . And the layout randomly changes

1 pro field for Dallas starting on Thursday to accommodate the extra pro teams playing for a Champions spot come the second event. Each team will have a 4 match prelim. Thursday start time will depend on total number of Dallas teams though the league and PBA will have some flexibility given they won't need a full day's schedule on Thursday.

Blah. I can't get anymore days off work, will have to get a red eye from Sacramento to be there on time. Any word at what time in the morning they plan to start? I imagine not because they still have to confirm which teams are moving around, but one can hope.

When in paintball history did it ever happen that a team won 3 pro titles in a row, and then dropped to 9th?

Let's keep it real

Yeah, the teams that traditionally hover around 8th place, will be in danger of moving down.... but rest assured, the best team in the world at that point in time, will win WC.... especially because now, teams from all over the world will have 3 events to make it into the pro division, to be able to play WC as pros

So... how will these changes effect stats and player ratings?
Also, will there be a new set of stats that will be created in light of these new format changes?

Ok think logistically like UPS for a sec.

You want them to spin a wheel and magically change the field dimensions, number or bunkers, placement, number of refs, etc between each game depending on what they land on?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
