X- Games= PAINTBALL?

ok so apparently there is a new league out called Moneyball and it'll be in the x games http://youtube.com/watch?v=MW6rhNI_EnY check that out. Well I would like to add I like the fact that paintball is expanding and getting bigger. BUT I don't like it that there is a whole new league for it with really strange rules. Why don't they just use X-Ball?

The concept of a "Moneyball" league's been around for ages. It's rediculous and looked down upon by many players. Unfortunately, Xball's boring as crap after about a year because by then the players are practically robots; there's no room to try new techniques because the fields are all the same. There's really basically two or three strategies and they all have relatively close breakouts compared to the NPPL.

I think Xball is fine, but they need to change the fields up a bit more.

Moneyball just seems... dumb to me.

that's a terrible format. It will soon become a running game instead of a shooting sport. We need less format's to legitimize the sport, not more.

The game is not that complicated but they have taken the whole reason for playing paintball (shoosting people) out of the game. The field needs to be bigger at least with more people and a center flag that is actually in the center so it takes some skill to run down field as opposed to being on the outside.

The whole 'run-thru and you eliminate everyone' thing is lame. It ruins the excitement of a run-thru.

I think they should play xball with 7 men, semi only, and on NPPL fields. Just seems like it'd be fun

it looks like a good why to move paintball into the spot light but changing up the rules that much will confuse anyone who starts to look into the game. if they changes some rules like if you move past the line there eliminated it would be better
