EPL TAC-5 Woodsball Challenge


Right now Chad and I are putting together the details for the woodsball event in October. This will be a first for the EPL series.

We are seeking input from players to help us decide which way to go. This will be a 5-Man event, with standard APPA Roster limits. We will be using the APPA system for registration.

Please give us your feedback! We are looking to make a decision here very shortly (By Aug 24th)

Things to think about in my opinion.

-team paint limits (pods per point)
-team gun limitations (pump, mech, semi, ramping)
-radio communication

Just spitballing.....

From our conversations yesterday, I believe the tactical would be with gun limitations and radios OK

The 2 flag "capture the flag" we'd considers a MECHANICAL ONLY - with any hopper and Open marker Semi capped to 12.5 - with any hopper

I don't believe paint limitation is being considered.

When I hear people say "no paint limit" it makes me think;

"I want to play tactical, but I also want to spray and pray"

When I say paint limit, im thinking something like 15pods per "point" per team. A paint limit would also make for more action. You wouldn't be able to sit there and camp with your 114 tank and 18pods of paint. Again, this is my opinion, take it or leave it....

The thing is spray and pray is an actual tactic used by the military for cover fire I say u don't limit paint but one person has to be designated as heavy gunner and they are the only one that can be on ramp and at 12.5 bps everyone else is semi 10 bps

In my opinion I say fallow the PSP rules . 12.5 capped ramping is optional but so is fully automatic. It would have to be up to the players digression on how much paint they would want to go through in a single point. With a single center flag similar to x ball

I would say 3 or 4 pods max. 2 flags race to 2 games. Have it a semi capped at 12.5.
Also just a thought. 3 guys have to use mechanical guns or pump. And 2 can use electrical guns.

Minor mathematical error needs to be corrected:
"5 Points for each opponent eliminated (x 5 possible 30 points maximum)" at the following url: http://eplseries.com/tac5/tac5format

I hope I can play this event. I think you nailed the format.

You're welcome, but please check your other math. You had the 100 points before, but didn't get there correctly. Now you don't have the 100 points. I'd bump up the points for a hang, or make each player left alive worth 2 points.

100 Point Game Max
40 points for a flag hang
These points are scored by capturing the opponent station and returning it to your home station.
This also signals the end of the game.
25 points for first flag pull
This is awarded to the team who is the first to reach the opponent station and pull the flag from the base flag stand.
This is determined by time remaining at the time of pulled flag, as it is possible that two flags could be in motion at close to the same time.
5 Points for each opponent eliminated (x 5 possible 25 points maximum)
1 point for each live player active at the end of a game. (x 1 possible 5 points maximum)

40+25+25+5 = 95

Where can one read about the rules of the this tournament? Are they in print somewhere, or are they still being thought up? I'm good either way, but I'm considering putting a team together for this and it would be a much easier pitch, if I could explain it properly.
