Why 5-man?

As a hard core NPPL fan, I'm happy to see them expanding and trying to draw more teams with event alternatives. However, I don't really understand the recent decision to start a new 5-man ramping division. Although I understand and agree with the optional format changes, why not make it 7-man. 7-man is the core of NPPL. It's almost a core value. Look at Las Vegas. Opening a D4 7-man was widely popular and successful.

Again, I agree with having the optional format that allows players to ramp, but keep your core values of 7-man for all divisions.

I think its good. 5 man is fast paced and a lot of people enjoy it. Plus, 7 man is just too expensive to play for some teams

To me, I think its a beginning to a smoother merger between PSP and NPPL.

i would guess that they didnt get rid of the traditional 7 man because if this new format doesnt work out they still have their roots at every event. 5 man i would assume because its much easier to coordinate 5 instead of 7 making it more likely for more teams; even though they will likely roster ~7 since its race to.. and they said their is no ramping or coaching...

so its like their d4 5 man that theyve had running, but you expand to higher divisions and make it matches not just games. not too much different.

Somewhat off topic but I thought the 5man race to was still semi 15bps?

It is semi and no coaching. Sorry if I caused any confusion.
