If we play pump xball the games are going to be over far faster then I can burn 100 balls. I dont really care about a limit I have played with both styles it just alters a few things. Im sure the field wants it unlimited I cannot blame them, if they put up the effort to throw a tourney they want to sell paint to get some income from it.

Limited paint does change some basic ideas of speedball though. not many lanes off break is something that you need to adjust to the faster more aggressive breakout with limited paint. Also you can only post and cannot keep a lane on a particular area which is basically a fundamental part of speedball.
Good to know. Thanks for the info. The way I see it is if more field offer pump only days rather than just one field pump play can really start to expand by draw of crowd.
I'll check out topgun when I get a chance but I really do hope more fields make pump days.

Hoping to have the first pump "meet and greet / format test" in mid December, possibly the 11th or 18th...

Any thoughts on these dates? We would love to have as many people out as possible to run some throw together games and get face to face feedback.

UPDATE:

Looking for players to come out on December 4th to get input on format and play a few games to familiarize new players and solo players with the proposed 3/5 man formats. Unfortunately, due to the cold weather, we will not have the speedball air bunkers available, but we will be playing some 3v3 and 5v5 to get everyone involved.

Solo player looking to get some games in? Come on down. We will be playing throw-together teams with all of our solo players to keep everyone involved.

If you have any questions, let us know, and we hope to see everyone who is available out for this! It will be a great time to get your input in for the upcoming season of our pump tournament.

Awesome. We are hoping to have a lot of solo players so I am excited about some throw together team play.

Anybody else planning on attending? We would love to get input on future pump events and format suggestions for the proposed spring tournaments from people.

Please let us know if you can make it out so that we can plan accordingly. If we do not get more interested parties, we may have to wait for the Spring, and that means less pump paintball for everyone... which is never good.

Just so we dont hold anyone's weekend plans up, this event will have to be rescheduled due to a lack of availability from the majority of interested parties.

We will aim for something early next year however we will keep this thread going for those with interest or ideas for the event between now and then. Please post here of PM me with any questions. Thanks again guys!

Will do, sorry for the delay, but we are hoping it will be worth it when people can make it out next Spring!

So what exactly are you looking to hold?
A single pump tournament or a pump tournament "Series", like it says in your sig?

Haha even though you might play pump with a hopper and auto trigger
in my eyes it's not a true pump game.
Pump to me is stock class
it fixes the limited paint problem and the skill level goes up
it's a throw back to the orignal game we come to love and how it was when I started playing

sure fields have these pump games every month,I don't go due to the fact that some cat with a high volume shooting marker thinks he's playing pump.

Try it you'll see it's a lot harder and more enjoyable than what most think is a pump game
old skool tubes and 12g
