First Tournament.

Hey everybody.

I never played a tournament in my life.

So I was thinking about getting a D6 5 man speedball team together to play in the EPL. In Division six, is it hard?

And I was wondering if you could post some advice.


I have an 08 ego


thanks.

Are you any good? It doesn't matter what gun you have, but do you have skill? Can you snap shoot? Shoot left handed? Take snake? Have balls?

If yes to about 3 of those, you should be good for D6.

He pretty much covered it... Make sure you have a team of people you can get along with and People who are willing to listen and play their positions... Make sure everyone is willing to be loud and communicate where people are... It makes a world of difference...

Ive never even heard of D6. D5 is very easy so im guessing D6 is really easy.
good luck man.

If you and some buddies started a team, a big thing to worry about is attitude. Most likely, your first tournament together...you won't do so hot. Do NOT get discouraged. You need some time to practice together, and get used to each other's playing styles. If you stick with your team, you'll be surprised as how fast you each progress.

If you are going to do a tourney, you better make sure you have 100% communication. Don't try to make any stupid moves, play the field smart. Try not to get tunnel vision, its one of worst mistakes you can make playing. Also have a good strategy of what you are doing, play aggressive and just use teamwork.

if you lose every game, don't feel bad. my team did that last year. at the end of the season, we were consistently near the top. the first tourney is more getting a feel for tournaments AND seeing what you need to work on. Remember to walk the field before hand.
