Sunday Teams

So I know everyone wants to make it to sunday and be there to play with the elite teams.

But since there is only 21 teams in the int. division i believe the ruling would be that they only take 8 teams to sunday, but i think they should take 16 and let as many teams play on sunday as possible. This might help some paint vendors sell more paint and make some money.

Just an idea.

anyone else?

I agree, but bummer the system can't find a way to take top 12 or something. 16 out of 21 is cutting only 5 teams.

Would work if maybe top 4 stay as top four and the
next 8 compete in round robin or best 2 of 3.
The other 8, 5-12 would play sweet (12/16)bracket:
5 vs 12
6 vs 11
7 vs 10
8 vs 9

Winners become 5, 6, 7, 8
1 vs 8
2 vs 7
3 vs 6
4 vs 5

Then semis, finals etc..

The only reason to do more teams would be to make more teams happy, sell more paint and have a larger event on Sunday. Sounds like good reasons.

I think they will still take top 16 for interm. What about nov there are only 5 so far do you think they will just take top 2? I dont think so even top 4 would be retarded. I am sure it will be top 16 just to make people happy. What I do see happening is either they cancel nov division and combining nov and interm together. I would not hold it past XPSL to do something like that.

they have 7 paid from what I heard and will be taking top 4. Not great but still some teams. Sure they will keep it all seperate divisions for this event.

I think you need to read his post a little more carefully. It seems like his idea is kinda what the NXL was doing where the top 4 are auto into the elite 8, and the other 8 teams battle to play them. That way you can have more teams play Sunday, but those that busted their *** on Saturday get a little bit more of a reward. Or something like that.
