I went to 2 World Cups when it was still 20 minute halves, and honestly the matches can get really really boring even with a ton on the line.
From a player standpoint it would obviously mean more paintball, but is more always better? You will end up spending 2-3 times as much on paint, and have nothing to show for it even if you win, because you could have won in the current format by scoring way less points.
In summary, who the crap knows?
The NCPA is an exception because it's a mix of player skills. Some teams are good, a lot are bad. If it were to be done in the PSP you wouldn't see games go on like that as often.
If you spend 2-3x more on paint, you get to play 2-3x more. So that argument doesn't hold up, really.
There are obviously still a lot of flaws but I still think it's at least more fun to play and entertaining to watch.
