make it a seperate event all together.i don't think teams will play 5 man and seven man the same weekend.maybe a seven man event a month before the nppl d.c. event might be a good warm up for d.c.!

i would love for this to happen but realistically i dont think it's cost effective for the mapl to do this. it cost's a good amount to run an event like this and splitting up formats would increase costs.

If you're interested in the idea, why doesn't each team have a representative in here post information pertaining to their team. [Contact Person/Phone Number & Team Name]

Build up a small projected list to ease the organizational part of running the event. The more teams that show interest, the better chance this can happen. Ultimately, it lies in the hands of the players, so if you want this to happen, work with each other and spread the word so there east coast 7man can return to OXCC/MAPL.

I think the big factor is going to be how you work paint pricing for 7man. If teams are going to play for basically fun and medals they are not gonna wanna spend a fortune in paint/entry. Only because now days teams can't afford that kind of set back.

This is what i have in mind.

Entry - $300 ($30/person w/10 guys)
Paint - $35-40/Case (Keep it around practice pricing. 7man teams shoot a lot)
Prizes - 1st-Entry Next event (good for 5 or 7man) + Trophies
2nd- Half off entry - Medals
3rd - Medals
4th - Medals
35$!!! and its perfect

Well the team that I play for did GPL 7man when you guys presented it and we was upset when you guys stopped it guess due to the lack of teams. And I think that lack of teams came from running 5man and 7man the same day, I think you guys should have the 5man mid of the month and have the 7man towards the end of the month which would give most guys to get they funds correct for the 7man.

First place Prize should be free entry for next event W/ trophy
Second paint for next event W/ trophy
Third trophy
Forth Thanks have a nice day

Ranking should stay the way it is with 5 man

I feel entry should be $300 BUT if you guys wanna be nice to us set it at $100 LOL!!!!

BYOP BYOP BYOP BYOP!!!!!!

If its BYOP that means MAPL is only bringing in funds through Entry.. They still have to pay all the refs.. Yes they wanna do it for the players but they are still a business. They need to show some sort of profit so its worth to keep it alive.

I say **** the whole BYOP BS. Just Sell Event Paint for a much lower rate for 7man. MAPL still sees some sort of income from the paint and the players don't pay as much out of pocket. Both sides come to a happy medium.

I never played 7-man @ the GPL but I do recall 7-man was either BYOP or you could get cases from GPL @ $30. Can someone verify this?

I like the idea of having this event on a later date BUT, for this to get back up and going I believe you have to hold this the same weekend as your 5man event for it to be cost efficient. Also it's 2 different playing styles I think if this was to be set in stone within the next week you will get the teams you need to make this happen. Also i like the sound of what people have in mind for fee's and prizes.

What i like the most
Entry $300
Paint if penny pintching i say mid grade such as silver and crusade to be offered
Prizes 1st entry to next event and paint(not too sure what a good number is for a 7man team)
2nd half entry and paint
3rd masks and paint
4th jerseys and paint

or something along those lines

just my .02

If you were to do an event they should do it like thay used to. Different divisions but everyone plays everyone. Going off the points systems give less experienced teams experience playing more experrienced teams but when it comes to finals you play teams in your division. This reduces the amount of teams from being scared off. Because if a D3 team gets blown off by a D2 team they still have a chance because the other D3 teams have the same obstacles. And it is great for experience in bringing 7man back. Prizes, any typer of prizes to help ofset the cost of the event would help! That is my two cents. Message me if you wish to discuss.

if prizes, cash would be nice. Just enough to get back what you spent. Gear is difficult to sell.
