AXBL format

What kinda format do you guys think the Axbl should implement this season? After watching the Cxbl at cup this year id like to try the old school xball format. so please vote and discuss pros and cons for both formats

I'd love for them to go back to the CXBL format but as a former player and owner in the old AXBL, it's really expensive. Alot of fun though shooting people coming out of the penalty box. Trust me when I say it's not going to happen. Plus having to buy about 18 cases per match gets old real fast.

Damn.
This is a hard one. I would love to play CXBL style, but that will be way more expensive...

The AXBL last year was pretty cool... The true x ball would be too expensive unless somehow you could get the paint for really cheap.

One thing that I didn't really like was just playing the 2 matches. (Driving from Baton Rouge was a little rough). SO in that case I wouldn't mind seeing it go "true or old school xball" but lower the rof to maybe 10 to help with the paint cost and the length of the match.
Just my 2 cents. Either way I'm sure I'll be playing at least one of these next season.

They already do... it's for the D4 race 2 in Class AA. In Class A it is similar to how xball was played, but cost of paint will be high.

You have to understand that the AXBL format for race to 7 is played over the whole season for several months. While the D4 Race 2 was per event with event prizes and end of series prizes as well.

Also remember this is a feeder league that follows what PSP does...

I think he's talking about NCPA Class A, rather than Class AA.

They play with modified old X-Ball rules, but adhere to the 12.5 BPS and I believe they changed the amount of timeouts allotted.

Raceto7 was great. The raceto2 was well run, as well. It wasn't like PSP where you have to wait between points as they cycle through teams.

I wouldn't mind trying the old X ball style. I never had a chance to play it and I'll be doing NPPL events mostly this year so AXBL will just be for a fun experience. I love 15 bps and I've never heard anything negative (other than cost) about true x ball.

The old xball style is too expensive, race to 12.5bps is more affordable
