I was at the last event, and it seemed that you were catering to the D3 players and trying to rush the D5 players out of the way. Saving paint for the D3 players and whatnot.

Have you fixed the air fill issues? Paint issues? Did you lay the turf out properly or is it still sitting on top of mud and puddles so that it soaks through anyways? I would fix those issues before spending money on a scoreboard that counts to....2. or 3.
I am not sure how long you have been playing the series, but we just started offering D5 last event. There are a finite number of teams that can be accommodated in a given day. D4 has traditionally been the most popular division drawing the most teams, so it makes sense for that division to have a higher cap.

We don't rush anyone, we try to maintain the schedule and keep everyone on time. If you knew me or MiLP or CEP, you would know that we have a long history of developing local and regional players and teams. So this idea that we cater to one division over D5 is nonsense.

For the record, here are the improvements that have been made recently: PSP scoreboard, inflatable start stations, pit improvements, walkie talkies for the refs, 45'x20' players tent, on-field chronos, PSP Affiliate status, Exalt as new sponsor, turf (not perfect but big improvement over mud puddles when the weather is bad) and this week the upgrades to the air system (thanks Insane). All of that is in that past two months or so and the improvements will keep coming...

Easy with the personnel attacks to milp. They ran a great event and the refs were awesome! Yeah, the weather didnt please people, but guess what, rain happens. Learn to adapt and have fun getting muddy. As far as the air is concerned, why isnt 3000 psi enough for a point? Do you really shoot that much in a game? And paint? Really, gonna gripe about that issue? I see that as a good sign. Way more teams signed up then expwcted, shot more paint then expected. This means paintball is still growing! Be glad to see our sport on the up and up. I wasnt mad one bit. I got to play a great event, had fun getting muddy, and got to support my home field by using their paint. Win win for everyone imo.

Let me start by saying MILP is a great series, but Air fills of 3k can be a big issue. On a side note Insane has bumped up their air system. Making the best tournament series in the southeast even better.

GJ Steve, and thank you to the rest of CEP/Insane for running/hosting such a great series.

If you want to hear honest criticism, this is it. Trying is great, but I'm driving 3 hours to get to your facility and paying ~120 to play your series. Plus a room, gas, food, etc. I would like to see more than try.

But you do see that there are more D5 teams signed up than D3 or even D4 at this point. How can you claim D4 is more popular when you've never offered D5 before. If you want to make money, you'll open D5 up and run more matches for them. If you want to give half your day to 3 D3 teams, that's fine. But let me do the math for you:
6 D5 teams x 300 = 1800
3 D3 teams x 500 = 1500
Plus 6 D5 teams shoot a hell of a lot more paint than 3 D3 teams and their matches are over faster.

Of course I could be totally wrong, but those lucrative and prolific D4 teams had to come from somewhere. Like D5.

I think you are on Axis right? Axis has been a great supporter of the league, so I want to spend the time to answer your questions.

First, we aren't trying, we are doing. I listed all of the improvements we have made recently and we will keep making improvements until we are perfect.

There are still 30 days to go until the next event. The divisions will fill up as we get closer to the event date. There is no telling if the current registration numbers will hold or change.

In previous events, the D4 division has pulled as high as 15 teams and has been the division we have built our series on. Perhaps the new D5 division will grow to be a stronger division and if so, I will make adjustments to accommodate that growth.

NOP this is not one of my guys I'll kick some *** if he was.
The MILP has worked hard to put there events on and do one hell of a job. We know what it's like to drive to play and I say 3hr that just a short one he needs to pull one of the 6 to 8 hr drives and see how that is.
You guys have AXIS in the game and we like it we now drive 2hr to play one of this states and most all states in South East top event. It keeps geting better. And if we can help out just let us know.

Been wondering on how the 2013 season will go for the MiLP event? Xtreme Paintball Factory will be committing to a PSP Affiliated series next season and we are trying to decide which series we should go with.. If you could just give me the run down on 2013 MiLP. Mainly what the series prizes will be lol
