I see you and Lastcall are in the same boat Jo. You want to piss and complain, attack Larry in Chris's case or in your case attack the integrity of the sport that you both claim to love.

Real quality individuals.

is anyone happy there is finally a release of rules? I am just happy at this point that we have something to go by so we can shoot each others heads off now. Anyone else ready to try this out?

I don't understand why you people are complaining about the complainers. We've got enough sheep in the league, what we need is more people that stand up for what they believe in.

Did you people forget that the CFOA got where it is(err..was) by listening to the complaints of players? If we wouldn't have been complaining, for years, about the things that we disliked, then the CFOA may still be: played in limited locations, played on random *** fields thrown together by the field owner an hour before the event, played with semi-auto guns using cheater boards firing at 20+bps, reffed by teams we were competing against the event prior, giving coupons as prizes, using no official ranking system thus allowing people to sandbag eternally, etc...

Even if i don't agree with all of the complaints, for the complainers.

And for the record...

Race2 format.
Unified ranking.
New tactical division.

Crowd Participation.
Allowing PSP/APPA to dictate what the players "need/want".

(should be a sideways thumb) For 10.5 bps.

Agreed

My beef is we are told the rate of fire as taken all the skill from the players ... Then you go and add coaching to 5 man.... Why even have a 5 man div.... go ahead and force everyone to play x-ball this year instead of waiting until next year to boot it.

I disrespect those who disrespect me.... You feed me all this **** about your doing something to save the sport... Then you take the biggest skill away... I love playing x-ball dont get me wrong... But coaching in 5 man is taking the most important skill from that div. Before a 5 man team could travel from states away and battle teams for a win.. Now they have to battle the team and their friends on the side.... For example.... say your from Tenn. and you ride to ATL.. Atl teams will have more people on the sides coaching for a race to 2... Before you and you team rode out ready to play, now you will have to gather people to ride down to keep things fair.

I am going to assume that Larry has no money right now, and knows he won't be making any this year. This year is about keeping the sport alive and making a tournament available, then leagues can work on making the game tougher and more skill based in the coming years.

The new USPL league is taxing paint prices, going up over 20% per case for every team, just to help build a little cash to support their league. Venues get more expensive, sponsors drop out. I know sponsors have been less every year because of money.

The changes do suck, but I cannot see any other way of letting this year happen. Only surprise to me is the increase of xball events. with rosters cut and paint, gas, hotel, etc all going up, hopefully they will offer a drop score and only count 5 events. all in all, teams will still play, events will go on.

I'm just happy that the rules and the costs have finally been released. We can finally move forward and get ready for X-Ball 1.

I don't see anything about restricted paints this year, so I will play dumb and assume that all paints are allowed??? Not that it pertains to us, just asking the question for the general population.

As far as the changes, there are some that I agree with and some that I don't agree with. I will voice my opinion about the changes to the proper people at the event. There is no need for me to air out my dirty laundry on here. Regardless, I will still play and be happy that there is a stout series in the local area, and I don't have to drive to Phoenix, or California to play good paintball.

See you fools on Valentines Day!!!!

I'm not very fond of the changes but I'll deal with them and play, BUT, I just don't agree very much with their justification of said changes.
