I just sent in my proposed prize list to KEE for approval. Once they approve, I'll make that known to you players.

The prizes will be Minis with other prizes for first. I can't do higher markers simply because I don't get the good deals that I get when I go with KEE markers. Not to mention, I'm sitting at 41 teams currently for event 3 compared to 60+ at event #1 when I was able to afford those droids.

I think you'll still be happy. I am going to 6th place in L3 and L4 and up to 4th place in L4. If more teams register at the last miniute, the prizes may go up.

I'll list the prizes... probably tomorrow.

thanks,

Dan

I don't know of a single team that doesn't play for first.
if your team is there "just to have fun" then is doesn't matter what the prizes are.

If you want "better" prizes then you better be willing to pay a larger entry fee.

ill pay a larger entry fee.. i dont care one bit.. i just think that having better prizes for the top 3 or 4 teams makes more sense. im not even playing th is event. just reffing. but i may be playing other events and im expressing my opinions for the sake of the teams. i know all teams play for 1st but dont you think the team that does get first should be rewarded as much as possible? either way its a fun tourney and ill still support the mps.. i just think that prizes could be better.. maybe g3's or something along the lines of that?

G3s are a very minor, if at all, upgrade from minis.
Just a different gun.

I think they would be too, talked to eric about it earlier this morning.

maybe have them play in level 2 division and compete for prizes(cash) separately?

I tried several times last year doing that very thing and a lot of the L2 teams threw a fit. Maybe they were scared?? We could entertain that idea for this event but understand that the prizes for all the other levels would drop some.

Let me hear from you L2 teams... can the L1 guys be in your Level and play against you?? We would do points just like normal... however the two L1 teams would not be part of your prize pool. They would have their own prizes.

The bad thing about this is if there are 2-3 other L2 teams that actually beat these L1 teams, the L1 teams could still get better prizes because they are in their own prize pool. May seam a little un-fair from that standpoint.

I'll do whatever, as long as a majority of the teams are happy. Just let me know what you want to do. You L2 team captains email me at midwestpaintballseries@cox.net with your opinion and I'll make my decision.

Really, this is a good idea.... your playing better teams so it is better practice for you and they don't take your prizes.
