Considering that the format is now called "race-2" and not "xball".. then "real" xball is dead.. lol i really don't car what layout we play for the event.. i'd like to have a newer one actually. but no, it's definitely not in it's prime right now

And of I course I appriciate paintball in the earlier days. I've been playing xball since 10 man died and xball was begining in chicago '03. I've played about every layout there has been and I liked them just as much as anyone else.

The smart thing to do is what Tapper already suggested and use 09 filed bunkers (which most fields have by now) and get a layout created for this event.
i dont get where you think xball is in its prime. there are less teams in the psp than ever before. i dont kow if you knoticed the name change but xball is called race to .But i do agree with you on using the upto date field. but i would also like to see an old 06 or 07 layout creep out of the box

Xball - Race, whatever you want to call it, PSP is very strong. Over 300 teams the last 3 years. Anyone forget we are in a recession? All things considered we are in great shape and the future looks strong.

World Cup
2009: 308 Teams
2008: 333

PSP would like to get more into promoting regional series like ours and having Cup as the single National event determining the National Champions from all the regions. They are more interested in growing the sport than hosting mega National events.

So, Bears are signing up this week, basic is there and dirtlife says they're playing. Anyone know what the other teams plans are or if there are more teams interested in playing D3.

The recession is obvious I believe especially in the paintball industry. World cup is always going to have a lot of teams sign up an play. It's the biggest event in the world. As far as xball/race to being in it's prime I disagree. Race to format is not near as fun as real xball but it's still a good format. I personally would love to see us go back to the original xball format but at this point it's not feasible. I think the psp has made leaps and bounds over the years to get to where they are now. I believe that the formats that psp has had over years were much better than the current. Thankfully paintball is still an amazing sport. Magic cocker.....you play at Chicago land correct? Ask Andrew if fields in tn are rag tag...I highly disagree with that seeing as how I've played at multiple fields across the country and in all areas you have rag tag fields ad the great ones.

I know not all fields in TN are rag tag. The family that owns our field also owns one in TN. I've been to a few of them down there. The people I was referring to just seemed to be living in the past or play specifically at some filed that still lives in the '04-'07 paintball era.

Xball and the race to format is an ever changing experiment for paintball. "Real Xball" was in no way superior to the race to format. It wasn't more fun. The matches were to long, paint consumption was extremely high, and you faced the chance that you would go to an event and go 2 and out. The sport is progressing, that's the important thing here. They're making it as affordable as possible, spectator friendly, and further legitimizing the sport.

If you are in this for the money than you might as well sell all your paintball gear and stay home and save your money cuz you will never get ahead. I play for the sport of it and this is the cheapest you will find to do that.
