Actually this isn't exactly correct. The MAPL has never intended nor do we intend to "mirror the previous PSP event." Not at all. We would LOVE to run layouts from the UPCOMING PSP event and hope to do so at future events. We did NOT do so at the first event due to having released information months in advance stating the Dallas layout would be used, and didn't want to go back on our word for teams who had spent a great deal of time practicing that layout. Plus, the MAO layout wasn't available until just before the first MAPL event.
It is our hope as we move forward with the 2013 season that we will offer MAPL field layouts using the UPCOMING PSP event, if possible.
Thank you so much for your feedback!
