New Idea For Mwxl #2... Your Thoughts Please!



What's up guys (and gals),

So, I was speaking with Steven who is the Team Captain of Vicious Bunnys this past weekend (Thanks again for all your help) who had, what I thought was a great idea! Apparently, he had this Idea last year but I shot it down without even listing to it. Only because it had to do with X-Ball and that everything we have thrown out with regards to a local X-Ball series goes nowhere! However, he and some of his teammates had my ear this weekend and it really made a lot of sense!

So check it out, there seems to be a love hate feeling with paintball players when it comes to 5 Man (Race to 2) format. You hate it because it takes too long between games however, you like it because you shoot way less paint than X-ball making the format more affordable. So here is the idea... What if beginning with the 2nd event at the Proving Grounds we implement X-ball Race to 2?

Here is how it would work. It would be pretty much the same way it is now however, when you come out to play a team in your bracket, you will play all of your matches against that team at once, we would give you time between matches (3 Minutes) to go pod up and get yourself together between matches, then come right back and play the next game. If one team wins two in a row, the third game does not need to be played then it’s on to the next two teams. If the teams split, then of course we play the third game, the same way we do now except the games are played back to back like X-ball. The beauty of it is you are still shooting the same amount of paint as well as event time is potentially shorten.

Post up your thoughts please

As long as the time between isn't ridiculously strict, especially for the first event trying this format, I would say this is a great way to go about it. Its like the other race to x formats, so it won't be a huge change.

Team College votes yes.

This is how many of the other series do it now. Its quicker and its a great introduction to the Race 2 format. However you need to run it with a time between points... just like xball. otherwise it can drag out forever.

Yes, that's the 3 minutes between matches. I think it's 2 in X-Ball?

I like the idea...

TO help with time in between the matches you could run another one, so it would be game 1 of A vs. B then game 1 of C vs. D... then A Vs. B again??

^^^ I seen this on the NPPL fields this past weekend thats where the idea came from...



I can say the Rejects would be down for the turning points style over the long delay's...

GIVE ME MORE AND IT'S A GO!!!
Let's here from more teams that have constantly played the series as well as those planning too... If the majority is for the change in format, we will roll with it!

We play another regional series and they run RaceTo2 with 2 minutes between points, which is definitely doable. But 3 minutes or running another game's point between your points would obviously work as well since it would be even more time. For a format like this, teams want to make sure they have extra pods, because you won't really have time to go pick them up between points.

I like the change in format to run the race to 2 you guys decided. This idea above also can work, an event our team was in ran this format with a vs b then c vs d then back to a vs b, this worked as the other teams just sat in the deadbox and when the game was done the teams in the deadbox moves onto the field and the team on the field waits back in the deadbox for next game. This allows people to get a little breather and fill back up on pods if you give them enough time. Either way both ways will work and I do like the change and cant wait for event 2

We are going to try to put a line in for 2 or 3 events this year and would love to see the xball race to 2 format.

Why not run it like an xball event.. race to 2 with a 2 min turn around between points. Also run an 8 min game clock. first to 2 wins or most wins after 8mind wins the match... this was the format for the msxl indoor event and I loved the way it worked out. I think having 4 teams on th field at once can turn into a cluster f**k. just my 2 cents on it..
