Impact supports new League

As you may have already heard, we are one of the pro teams who have joined together to form a league; your paintball league. We have been working for weeks on ways to create a league that runs lean with a small but effective staff, cut wasteful spending, streamline the registration check-in process, ease the burden of time and financial commitments from lower divisional teams, assign committees to focus on ways to improve scheduling, make it easier for the industry to support us, address concerns and ideas from teams of all divisions and focus on the competition and excitement that is 7-man. This is our way of giving back.

The league will be a national series consisting of six events with four divisions of 7-man play and one 5-man division. A steering committee will be formed of representatives from all divisions to make sure this league will always be your paintball league. More information on the league, including the league name, venues, pricing and much more, will be released at the end of the week.

On behalf of our entire team, we encourage you to support this league in any way you can. Again, this is a league we can all believe in.

out of curiosity, how can 6 events be player-friendly? Even if the entry cost was free, plane tickets are ****ing expensive, and many people can't afford to take time off work and school to drive
I would have much preferred to have heard of a regional series tbh but this is still...ok I guess

dude, simples solution... dont play all 6 events! seriously, 6 events is awesome. think about it like this:
-more venues
-different layouts
-more chances to compete with people across the country(s)
-Good chance of at least one event being close enough to home that u dont have to fly

too many reasons to list honestly. but i can see nothing but positive things happening as a result of this league, and i am very happy i stumbled into this thread
