The prizes are better for 5 man than Xball compared to costs.

I strongly agree!!!!

Half the players, 1/3 Entry fee, 1/5 or less of the paint consumption and comparable cash prizes. It almost makes more sense to put in (2) 5 man teams and hope to get 1st and 2nd. You would come out ahead in 5 man, versus not even coming close to breaking even in Xball.

But I still prefer Xball, just for the format in general. Its much more fun!!!!

more teams dump more cash into the 5 man series. Look at the number of teams playing each event.

xball #1 = 31 teams
DSO = 97 teams

so 1/3 of the entry is made up when 3 times as many teams sign up.

But xball FTW!

i was about to say the same thing.
Good luck trying to get 1st and 2nd in 5-man, but you have a much better chance of doing that in xball.

Lets think of this logically. There is actually a very small revenue difference between the two events.

X-ball
25 D3 teams @ $1100-$27500
6 D2 teams @ $1200-$7200
=$34700

5-man
40 D5 teams @ $300-$12000
33 D4 teams @ $400-$13200
24 D2 teams @ $500-$12000
=$37200

With this being said. With more than double the teams, 5-man is bringing in only $2500 more in revenue. If someone wins an event, they should be able to at least cover their entry and paint, then have a little left over for themselves. What is the incentive for a team to move up if they can make the same amount in a lower division? I sure as hell wouldn't move up if I knew I could actually make money in a lower division. I just think the cash distribution should be re-thought. Just doing well in an event and not even breaking even and then seeing 5-man(which costs significantly less) winners take home around the same amount is discouraging. This is in no way bashing the CFOA, I enjoy playing the CFOA and think Larry, Josh and the refs all do outstanding jobs.

I understand that but where are they going to get the money to give to the xball teams?

also those prices don't include ID's and Paint Sells.
- I know most who play xball also play 5 man events usually.

But then think of paying the refs and things of that nature.

but i understand that xball players want more because it cost more to play but you also have to have more teams so prizes can be greater.

Also will prize payouts change per event being based on how many teams play?(have yet to see a post with all the prizes and winnings for each division and xball or 5man)

This is in no way bashing the CFOA, I enjoy playing the CFOA and think Larry, Josh and the refs all do outstanding jobs.

I don't think anybody could have said that any better!!

And the lower division or more teams in a different format argument doesn't fit this argument at all.

The point is, payouts should be based upon their skill level and division, not how many teams they have in their division. It has been said before: Should D5 5 mans teams get more money in payout than NXL teams becasue they have 60 teams per event and the NXL has 12? The answer is no, because the attendance numbers should be irrelevant when factoring the cash distribution between divisions and formats. The sole determining factor here should be the level of dedication, skill, and organization it takes to compete at the highest level your individual series may offer.

I have said it many times before, and I still stand beside what I have said about not personally caring about the prizes, but I have heard alot of stink about the cash distribution from many people and I too am left to wonder why it is the way it is. But truthfully, I'll still play regardless, because I love the format and this series and would not trade it and all the memories I get from it for anything else.

Can't wait for Xball #2

We'll be gunnin' for that #1 spot this time Collin!!!
