The refs could have been alittle more organized and on the ball. But you would have been tired as hell too if you had to ref from 9:00 till 8:30. Im not trying to hide the fact that the reffing could have been better, Im just saying it wasnt their fault.

The air fills really screwed everyone up. Between long air lines and delayed games, it put everyone in a relaxed mood with the hour long waits for their game. GPL is not to blame for the stuff that happened Sunday. The compressor messing up is just something that happened and couldnt have been prevented.

NYJets25- Did you talk to Cyndi about your schedule problem? Im sure if it was a computer error and wasnt supposed to have happened, it would have been corrected.

As far as the finals for the B and C division, they just ran out of time. It was nobody's fault that the compressor messed up and the schedule got delayed. We ran out of time and it got dark too early. I doubt any one of those teams wanted to come back the next week or even better yet, play in the dark. I know alot of teams may have gotten ripped off or whatever but thats just the way it happened.

Cyndi and the rest of the GPL staff-
Thank you for running another great tournament. I figured last years GPL was going to be hard to beat, but this one was right up there. You guys had no control over the problems that happened. Keep up the good work!

Yea, man i did talk to cyndi and in the beginning of the tournament we were scored a 16 instead of a 60 or something because our captain signed in the wrong spot, and we got that changed... but with the whole bye thing we talked to them about that aswell and like i said in my post since all the teams didnt finish those games we couldnt be credited that, but i dont understand why the teams that finish the games keep those scores and the teams that didnt get a bye... either way i had a great time and its over... nothing can be changed. and for 70 teams the tournament was ran very well, as well as some of the better reffing i have seen. people who complain about reffing are whining about a cause that will never get fixed or be fixed, no matter what happens there will always be bad calls in ANY SPORT AT ANY TIME so just take it as it goes no body is perfect... and if your such a good player to deserve that call it shouldnt have come down to it in the first place so overall the reffing was great.. i sure as hell kno that i couldnt organize a tournament or ref a tournament for 14 hours straight so once again thank you to all the refs and the staff as well

I know its a little early.. but are there any plans to fix some of the problems w/ the first event? Another compressor, bigger banks for example. Like I said, I realize its really early for that, but curious if it was thrown around during the long day?

Compressor going down has nothing to do with bigger tanks... And im sure cyndi and brian will work out all the problems they are known to go overboard to make their customers happy.

avalanchejh- Who took 2nd again? Yeah ***** thats right, WE DID. Ill admit, you beat us, stepped on our guns, and bonus balled the ****ing **** out of our player. Im not the one to complain about being shot the hell up, but that was alittle uncalled for. You dont sit there and pound on the last guy left. Our guns were not leaning on the deadbox, they were laying on the ground. You about took the whole damn deadbox out. All I gotta say is, DONT STEP ON OUR ****.

Talk about sportsmanship LOL LOL man he's just pissed because he went to Skyball did 8th (check the scores again) and can't win at a Local event.. because you probably got spanked by Bluechips and shooters & Looters and alot of other teams yesterday..

But whatever, just because you didn't place doesn't mean that gives you the right to trash other teams.. Whats said on the fields stays on the fields.. Don't bring it into forums and try and make yourself feel better about losing... It's no one elses fault you played like junk but your own so suck it up and deal with it... Practice some more and win the next event and then you will have the last laugh, but as of right now zero defect has the last laugh on you because his team took second and you didn't....

did anyone get the info on the 5man B results. I really want to know how my team did?? we got the 2nd highest score in B, but i don't know how cyndi is going to rank the divisions since there were no finals. This kinda stuff really pisses me off. You work so hard to make the cut and then they tell us that there aren't gonna be final. I hope Global does something to strighten this all out soon cuz i've never had a tournament experience like this one before.

CFOA ran at least 90 teams, i think closer to 100 or possibly more, in the late march event. It shouldn't be based off of divisions when you have so many teams. There is a way of checking things where novice teams play ams and so forth that will make the scoring cool. Then limiting the games to like 6 or so with semis and finals might help scheduling issues. At the CFOA on like 6 fields or something all fields were done prelims before 1:30...it was pretty cool cause there was no BS...not to mention they were having compressor problems in the morning due to the volume of people!

it is a well run tournament that always seems to have some big problems. i just don't agree with the way the finals were handled, most teams work there a**es off to just enough points just to qualify for the finals, (so they can play the supposed best teams in the GPL for the 1st place prize) just to have that taken away. it just seems that you spent all that money on entry and paint and just didn't get the chance to play for the reward you rightly deserved. How sad :-(

next time things will be better right B & C??

Hey Booyahkai

I know what you mean. The very first time that my team advanced into the finals in the GPL, the weather (not running out of day light) was the problem. We were seeded fourth in the finals and beat two of the teams above us during the prelims. BUT due to the weather, Brian ask for a vote from the teams in the finals if they wanted to continue with it or let the prelim scores be the determining factor as far as result placement was concerned......

Well guess what, the team seeded first opted not to play the finals and the teams placed second and third 'didn't' want to play either...... so we got the short end of the stick.

But that's all good. Like you, I believe that the determining factor as far as result placement is concerned should be your finals score. That way, everyone will know exactly who was the best team there on that day.

The moral of the story is plain and simple. PLAY AS HARD AS YOU CAN, SCORE AS HIGH AS YOU CAN AND LEAVE NOTHING TO DOUBT.

Your team played well and I fully expect to bang heads with you all season long.....and I'm absolutely looking forward to it. As well as banging heads with all the other Div B teams.... of course.

Best regards,

I agree with you Ronin. Everything is decided in the finals doesn't matter how you placed in the prelims the finals are what counts. Even though my team got the 2nd highest score. We wanted to battle it out in the finals to see who was really going to come out on top. But the game we had with PBX fatal 5 was a great game and we'll probly get a chance for a rematch in the next event . . I hope Global has a way to correct this situation. Because in my mind the first event never ended and will never end until the finals are played and the score is calculated. Cuz everyone knows its a whole new game in the finals
