The way a similar series we play runs it with 1 field is there's a early group and a later group. Then you don't have 20 teams trying to huddle around 1 field. It works pretty well. The only early teams that have to stick around are the ones that are moving on, but they get a nice little break while the later group plays.

We will run two fields and have D4 on one and D3 on the other. If D3 falls through (which it wont), we will run D4 on both fields.

P.S. I did let everyone know... the same way you found out. But seriously, I will be posting up a new thread with details on how the event will run

PSP rules say if your goggles don't have ears you can't play so put something there and then cover up with a beanie and your fine

I'd be down to try it Black. Anyway to hook us up with some type of "pits with air." We where playing points back to back during the semis and finals at Plex and we had beg for some time to feel air etc.

Also, i owe you some entry money for this next event. Wait for you account to get unbanned?

Pits with air would be amazing...because of the race-to-2 it would halp a lot of teams and would allow things to go smoother

Last time I was at PG they had air right off the field. This was like almost a year and a half so maybe some of the pg guys can let us know for sure on this.

Are you gonna make it to where whoever is on the field for that point has there stuff set up either in the pits or right next to it so we can get air and paint right there? I think that would make it 1. more like a psp feel to it, and 2. more importantly it would make the turn around times go a lot faster.

Its common courtesy to not go into the pits if you are not playing.

Actually it cost about the same. Even though you shoot more paint you have twice as many players the cost is divided between more guys. Either way paintball is paintball and its always fun Stoked to play my first MWXL event!
