So i am just wondering how the event is going to be run at Pekin. unless they are adding another field, (last time i checked they weren't) they are only going to have one field up for this event.

how is the tournament going to be run? last event we had 2 fields and basically went nonstop until i think it was around 1 for prelims. 9-1 is 4 hours on two fields, so we are going to run 8 hours on one field give or take? then have semi finals and finals after that?

and then if all the d3 talk gets figured out and resolved and teams pay this time, adding another division to this event? how is that going to work?

Depending on teams, can they setup a second field? Even with 12+ teams in d4 alone 1 field will be rough...

The Word

Ideally, for each hosting field we want to set up an open Aftershock practice the Saturday prior to the event, which would allow teams to get some good practice in before the event. However, because of the situation at Pekin, this is how it’s going to go….

If the D3 team’s sign up wither its X-Ball or 5-Man, we will run all D3 matches on Saturday and D4 on Sunday. If the D3 Teams are a no show (again), there will be an open Aftershock practice that Saturday and the MWXL Event #2 matches on Sunday.

sounds good to me. but we are still going to run into the fact of only one field for possibly another 20 d4 teams.

well.. if thats the case. no one should have an excuse of not being ready nor should wait for a team to get onto the field when theres plenty of time on the side waiting.. but still.. ONE FIELD!? i guess..

yeah seriously, now i'll openly state that i'm not 100% familiar with psp rules but if there is over 4 games between your teams matches then you better be waiting to get onto the field... this BS of the ref asking "are you ready?" and teams saying "no hold on" is stupid. make them play with a player down or whatever. ESPECIALLY if people in d4 are wanting to move up into d3 xball later down the road

ya, you'd think teams would be ready when you hear you're in the hole. Although on the other side I will say it's hard as **** to hear ANYTHING in an indoor (let alone with 2 fields going).
That aside though, the last tourney went REALLY fast for d4, I wouldn't think running that many teams will be much of a problem.



Also, I don't know if it's been asked or not, but how are brackets/matches picked? Random or what?

Agreed. MPPL #1 went down pretty quick. I think it started a little later than planned, with 15 teams total, but we were done with the tournament by 5-530 pm. That includes shenanigans and cleaning up gear afterwards.

The teams would step onto the field when the horn from the previous game sounded. Mike would announce the teams that were on-field, on-deck and in the hole with each game, so there was little excuse for being late onto the field in the prelims.

I was ultimating that tournament and will be the next 2. With aftershock running the show it might be different. Mike would have to talk to then and laydown the law for teams to be ready once the flag is hung

If we have to run 1 field we will run one field. Teams will either sign-up for D3 or not. If we have 20 teams or more for D4 then we will start things a little earlier and make damn sure things are run tight and smooth.

We need teams to sign-up and sign-up now.

having only one field will require teams to keep track of who is playing where and to pay attention to what is going on on the field, which they should be doing anyway as prep, seeing what others teams do and what not...plus having only one field should allow teams more time for podding and what have you...so, in some repspects, there are adantages to the single field set up..not to mention the fact that with having the one field, when the finals come around one team wont have an adantage having played a lay out more often than another team, like at the last.....

in short: there are probably more advantages than disadvantages to playing on one field... deal with the layout and stop worrying

so, one question i do have though is how is matching working? are you keeping us in kind of the same brackets (i.e. vicious bunnys, edge army III, INcognito, Caustic, just like the first) or putting us all in a hat and setting brackets up that way? just curiouse

The APPA is used to generate the teams brackets.

Struggling to be ready for 5-man should not be an issue. As soon as you get off the field, fill up and clean yourselves off before talking about what happened or what you're going to do next. If xball teams can do it in less than 2 minutes, so can you. As stated above, you should be watching every possible game and have someone within earshot of the person calling out who's next.

With quick turnaround time and properly organized teams, this event should be over before it gets late. Good luck to everyone playing.
