I have noticed how many AXBL teams are for sale - it's a bit concerning. However, most of those teams have also found new owners and I suspect many of the same players will be back - just under new management.

As for your other question - I'd say foXball, but I'm a bit bias. However, with you owning a store and foXball being a byop tournament series - I'd have to say you can control your costs better then many other teams. No one is offering much in the way of prizes, so value can mainly be measured by the tournament series itself. Who do you want to play against? Which series will draw the teams you like (or dislike).

Best of luck in your decision George - I don't envy you or the other owners & players. There are some tough choices out there right now.

That is the most important question, and a big catch-22. How do you know what teams are really going to be playing where, and who is going to be on those teams? How long do you wait before you make a decision? Personally, I'd wait at least until after the NEPL players meeting next Thursday.

Gabe,

Why wait - you may find your self on the outside looking in. We only have so many slots available. As of right now:

Boston Plague
Lancaster Storm
Blackstone NEAA
Somerville Crisis (pending)

Teams in the process of signing up:
NTL
Smithfield Sharks
A team of regular players from Fox 4 (Don't know their team name - sorry)

That leaves 2 slots (9 teams) left to fill.

I"ll consider going to 18 teams (split on Saturday and Sunday), but we're focused on 9 teams right now.

Outside looking in?

Dave

I was speaking in general terms. Personally, I haven't decided if I even want to play paintball at all anymore. I'm quite tempted to just take my time money do a lot of traveling next year instead.

The main choices for teams in New England for next year seems to be foXball vs NEPL. Both leagues lock you in for the season. Both leagues have comparable offerings. Some teams will now have the benefit of knowing which teams are playing foXball, but they don't know who is playing NEPL. Nor does anyone really know for certain what is going to happen with AXBL/MXL/RXL. There seem to be a few other smaller local leagues trying to start up as well.

There are lots of options available for teams in the area next year. I think they should take the time to consider them carefully.

interesting concept in locking teams in, but what about teams that may not be interested in playing all 4 events but still wanna play xball? Is anyone offering a pay per event? I do like the idea of bringing my own paint.

There was a post in the New England forum about South Coast Paintball doing a PSP-like local series.

Dont wanna sound negitive but I need a league with experience in running and staffing an event. Last thing I need is to have my guys reffed by some 13 year old kids that dont have a clue.

George - the locked league thing - especially in XBall is for a purpose - primarily to guarantee the division. We had teams sign up for every XBall event this season, just not enough to run an event. Plus, XBall requires a certain number of teams to guarantee matches per team - so in that respect - for us anyway - the locked league makes sense.

And yes - we are holding a meeting next Thursday night (the 12th @7pm) in Everett about the 2010 Information, primarily the 7 Man & Xball divisions BUT we will discuss 3 man and 5 Man as well. ALL Players are invited to attend - not just captains. George - we would LOVE to see you The meeting is so we can go over the details of what we have put out so far. I promise lots of deep thought and maybe a pie chart or two

We do also have plans to run 3 Indoor Series over the winter - I hope to have all of that information at the meeting as well.

In the meantime - to anyone that cannot attend the meeting - please send me an email with any questions you have - and i will both answer it and bring it up at the meeting for you!
