I don't see a problem. If you're comitted to the series you'll play all the events. Play the last msxl on the third then roll down to Florida on the fifth to play cup.ost people go down for the whole week anyway so playing the Saturday before is just a good practice for the big game!

because it screws over teams that have a bad event so if thats the case probably will not attend the rest of the events and i doubt other teams will continue to pour money in to get pounded or not have a chance at cup

That takes money out of the pockets of the promoters. The series prize is based on so many teams and events.

problem 1 to close and a lot of $$$$ to spend in one week during a recession

Problem 2 registration closes over 2 weeks away preventing teams from getting in on a 4 day notice because d3,d4 xball starts on wed

So does your team only play for profit? No playing for fun? No wonder you are so worried about it.

So unless you win the series you aren't going to cup? May as well save yourself some money and forget the rest of the season. As far as the recession if you don't have the money to play why are you? What bills are you not paying so you can pay?

Sorry you misunderstood i will be playing at cup either way i am not finicaly able to take a week plus off work cover plane tickets to orlando or tampa ship my reg's for my tank and pray that it gets there before i do to play its a lot your not thinking about and not the leagues fault cup is early this year just need to quickly find a solution or cut one event and make two events double points but then the league looses money. so do you have any suggestions that would work

how about giving darin some ideas that you guys are thinking, like lets move the sep event up and the make up for the gas event in the middle to end of aug like the 22nd and move the sep event to the 12th of sep i know that is close but it gives some recovery time for each event and some time for world cup. just my thoughts.

These are all valid views. Yes I am developing an ulcer over this one. I am leaning towards moving the Final event and Asylum event up 1 week earlier. That would give exactly 4 weeks between MSXL events and an extra week before Cup. What do you guys think?

No, The original schedule did not give 4 weeks off before Cup either, even if Cup was the 3rd week in October like usual the last MSXL would only be 2 weeks before Cup.

As some have suggested this is a great warmup for CUP.

Two weeks is certainly a lot better than 2 days. It's going to be a lot of expense in a short amount of time, but at least we have a few months so hopefully people can start saving now.

I agree with the concern, my team unfortunately had to miss the indy event but plan on playing the rest of the events.

The date of the last event would put a strain on my players being able to be off for the weekend and then taking off for Cup. Something would have to give.

I would agree with slighty moving back the dates of a couple of events to get them all in. Two weeks is alot better than a couple of days, I agree.

It is unfortunate that the PSP changed the dates up so far.

dont blame the msxl for this

the psp event date was released months after the date for this was made

i am sure Tapper will make the right decision for the players, because if this is handled wrong he will probably lose alot of teams for next year
