2012 VICIOUS RaceTo Series - Event #2 - Premier Schedule


Registration will open at 6AM Sunday morning.

There will be a MANDATORY Captain's Meeting at 7:30AM on Sunday. We will use this to go over the new format and ensure everybody understands how it will work, as well as to answer any questions you might have that morning.

Our New Expedited Format:
How it normally works: Two teams play at a time: your team, and the other team. You play a point, get a 2 minute break. Play another point, get a 2 minute break. This process repeats until somebody scores 4 points and wins.

How it’s going down this year: Instead of having the 2 minute down time between each point where nothing is happening, spectators get bored, etc we’re going to fill that time. How you ask? Simple, with another game! While the first two teams, let’s call them A1 and A2 are playing their first point, teams B1 and B2 are in the pits getting loaded up. As soon as A1 scores on A2, their point is over. Teams B1 and B2 now have 30 seconds to run onto the field, reach their start station, and get ready to play. While B1 and B2 are playing their point, Teams A1 and A2 are loading back up for their next point. One of the biggest benefits is that you can potentially have more than the normal 2 minutes to get ready.

Now I know you’re thinking, “30 seconds isn’t enough time to get on the field!” It actually is. Because you still have all of the time it takes them to play their point to get loaded back up and cleaned off.
“But what if their point only takes like 20 seconds?” No worries, it won’t. And in the freak event it does, you will get a full minute to get yourselves ready in the pit, along with the 30 seconds to make it to the start box.
“What if in the excitement of the match, my guys try to go on the field at the wrong time?” Don’t worry; we are using custom built software for the monitors in the pit and spectator areas. The screen will change colors for each game being played. Teams A1 and A2 might have a Blue background, while teams B1 and B2 might have a Red background. We will also be announcing which teams are on the field each time to help minimize any confusion, but we have a feeling once you get the hang of it, its going to be a breeze.

What makes this so great you ask? It’s faster. It’s more exciting to watch and play. Did we mention it was faster? Faster tournaments mean you get headed home earlier in the day, meaning you get home earlier, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t like that? Vicious played an event in 2011 that utilized a similar concept and it was non-stop paintball excitement.

** This expedited format will be used in the 2012 VICIOUS Series in the Premier Division events that have 10 or more teams signed up. If 9 or fewer teams are registered at the time the schedule is generated we will use the classical, one match at-a-time style of running matches.

Something not making sense? Have a question? No problem, we’re here to help! Email us at ViciousSeries@gmail.com or call the store at 402-502-3434

We will have chronographs available to players beforehand, chronos in the pits, as well as spot checking players on the field.

players can pick pods up as they leave the field like they always have.

you can also have a staff person that runs out as soon as the flag is hung to start picking up pods.

you can also have a quantity of pods on hand and grab them every few points.

you can also bust *** around the field on a segway snagging pods left and right: FINDERS? KEEPERS!

Sounds good!

Now we know what you're thinking... How will I know if my point got added to the scoreboard? We got you covered. The BLUE games score and game time will be displayed in a smaller window while the RED teams are playing.

Check it out!!
