Hey guys, I have started a petition on change.org to change the dimensions of the NXL field from 150x120 to 180x100. The square footage of the field remains the same, but I believe there are several benefits to adopting these dimensions. The link is below, sign up if you agree with the points laid out in the petition, flame this post to hell if you don't
Change NXL field size to 180'x100'
After thorough discussions on PBNation, many players have come to the agreement that the field size for the NXL should be changed from 150'x120' to 180'x100'. We believe that these field dimensions will help facilitate a more balanced professional level, in addition to a more viewer friendly sport. By changing the field size, players will be able to take more aggressive break outs and will have to push the field harder in order to gain a superior angle over their opponents. We believe this will reduce the number of points where there are several immediate eliminations at the start of the point and the rest of the game is played on the back line. Allowing teams a better chance to make it to their primary bunkers alive should keep games more interesting by giving teams a chance to make an aggressive move. With more aggressive tactics, more players surviving to their primary bunkers, and less points played off the back line, paintball has the chance to develop into a much more "consumer-friendly" sport. It can be difficult to stay focused on point after point of teams locking down the field from the back line, and just like other professional sports that have made changes to their rules over the years to promote a more exciting game, paintball should take that chance as well. The desired end result is that we may be able to bring the sport of paintball into a more mainstream view.
