PbN Official Poll - What type of competitive paintball do you want to play next year?

There has been a lot of talk about what kind of competitive paintball should be played next year. The leagues are still talking about a possible merger but since nothing has been decided, it is time to make yourself heard. You can vote for more than one option if you must.

Vote and share it so your friends can vote too.

If you have the PSP badge and actually play the PSP, you can also vote here in the private PSP forum.

Keep two leagues: PSP and NPPL each have something to offer
NPPL 7-Man (no coaching)
PSP 5-Man RaceTo (coaching)
PSP style RaceTo with more than 5 players on the field (coaching)
NPPL style with less than 7 players on the field (no coaching)
I don't care, just merge the leagues already, I'll play any of it.
Just get rid of coaching and I'll play it.
Just make sure it uses the point system and I'll play it.

If you have another option that is important to you, post it below! If it is popular enough, I'll even add it.

Honestly though just get rid of coaching minus spectator participation, make it XBall and 6 bodies on the field. 30min games with 15min halves

Before they showcased the new format at the DC challenge I made a joke about a new format with two types of flags...

When I saw it with my own eyes it made me sad

so many choices John, why you do that lol?
I personally dislike coaching with all my heart,
I like the seven man pace, but I love the "race"
point system, so I don't really have my perfect
option in your poll, reason I voted for "get rid of
coaching". I'll believe in the merge when I see it.

I would love to see coaching go away and uncapped semi come back. The league I play doesn't have coaching (thank God) but does follow the PSP 12.5 ramping rule. It would be nice to see the skill of being able to fire fast while playing be brought back and get rid of the "leveling the playing field" crap.

Great idea! Lets have everyone play and become comfortable with 5 man, but then switch it to 7 man for Pro so that it is an entirely different game! BRILLIANT! D1/Semi-Pro teams will be jumping to Pro like it's nothing!

Does anyone think before they post? All of the major tournaments in the world are using 5 man formats. Why in the **** should we be an exception? Kill 7 man, 5 man for life.

leave the PSP like it is. merge the leagues, and have 7man divisions. use the NPPL's marketing skills and the PSP's, well, everything else. i don't think i am the only one who would like to see the above happen.

Get rid of coaching but keep the crowd into it and let them scream or say whatever they want. make the field longer(like the 7man field) and add 2 bodies to the psp raceto formatt.

just getting rid of coaching would be great. it's better to watch and it allows players use their skills to its full potential.

I play 5 man race to with 12.5 and I love it. If the leagues merge, maybe lose coaching and that's it. Most 7 man players will play 5 man, why wouldn't they?

7 man is dying, everyone plays the 5 man race format.

I just want to play paintball and watch great paintball games, to me it does not matter the format, number of players, coaching, flags, etc. Just play paintball.
