Dan, we have no problem playing these teams. what kind of prizes can you really give a division with only 2 teams? How much of the L2 package will be lost? My vote is let them play. Will there still be top 6 to finals? or what is the format for this event (single round robin or 2 divisions)

i cannot and will not speak for the rest of my team, but i don't have an issue playing as long the points for an l2 team winning or losing against an l1 do not affect the l2 standing for prizes and making finals. i mean you *could* as an l2 team lose the l1 games, win enough points against other l2 teams to make top 6 for finals; but not make finals due to another team beating the l1 teams. but that would probably happen only to a team on the brink of not making finals, and it may or may not happen. but id be pissed if a situation like that happened. but if goes like that, then there is not reason for an l2 team to play an l1 team, forfeit the game and save your paint; you havent lost anything.

its gonna be a controversy if you let them(l1 teams) play l2 teams, but you already know that by now.

how you would do l1 points is up to you and the l1 teams that decide to show up.

im not scared to play the l1 teams, ive played storm's lines and senate. its they are in a higher division for a reason, due to their game skill, not so much the physical gun fighting, laning, and such but the game intelligence in most cases; but they can be beaten by l2 teams.

i really do believe that if you dont have enough teams to have a certain division in a regional tournament, then cancel that division. its a sad situation, but there just arent enough teams willing to compete with each other in that high of a level for a regional event. most of the l1 teams are national level teams, at least d2, so they focus more on the psp/uspl rather than the regional tournament series.

as I stated before.... points will still be recorded. Theoretically, all L1 teams will beat the remaining L2 teams and the points will not matter because it will all be equal... however, those L2 teams who beat a L1 team will be that much higher up on points if they win and will deserve to move to finals.

What would happen is we would have a total of 18 teams. We would do 2 brackets with one L1 team in each bracket.... giving each bracket 9 teams each.

points will still be recorded and the top 3 L2 teams from each bracket would advance to finals and the L1 teams will compete in a best 2 out of 3 competition.

All the emails I've received have approved this idea... so as of now, this is what we will do.

I will modify the prize list and post soon.

Dan

For us teams that could not manage to make it up to the field this weekend, will the five man layout be set up after the 3 man saturday evening? or sunday morning. if it is set up saturday after the three man. will there be a chance for us to walk the field, aside from sunday morning?

does that make sense?

since you mentioned the heat... make sure you all invest in a pop-up tent. I will be bringing a mysting hose and hooking it up to my second tent for shade and a cool mist to keep your bodies from overheating. Make sure you bring lots of water. Forecase as of last nights news was high in the lower 90's. Still going to be hot but could have been a lot worse.
