PSP or USPL?

In your opinion wich series host better events and has the best prices?

I can play both formats and enjoy them both but I can only afford to play one event this year and don't know wich series to go with.

Well, unless your d2 and up, your going to be getting jackshiz(gave up swearing for lent so give me some slack) from the PSP.

Thats why our team is going with USPL.

Buttt....

PSP IMO has better venues, or more of a selection

I play the PSP as I enjoy the format the most. I have played and won at both styles. I really enjoy the fun that the Race2 format offer.

If I were to play for money I would stop as there is no way in psp or nppl to make money. You play for the love of the game and to see just how good you and your team are.

Also if you don't go to PSP events you can't watch Vicious play

4 matches in xball prelims. 8-12 games in 5-man. Because the 5-man format is set up to be best of 3, you may play 8 games if you win in the first two games against each team or you lose in the first two games against each team. If you split (go 1-1) the first two games, you play a third game. Assuming you split all 4 sets, you could play 12 games in prelims independent of whether or not you're advancing.

I would say psp. Psp has better venues, more teams, bigger trade show, and just a better atmosphere than the uspl.

Now maybe if it was back when nppl was still going strong that would beat out the psp. Nppl had the better venues and better atmosphere.
