D-5.

A great way to get started in the world of tournament PB. CJ and crew run a great event... plus the BBQ is awesome.

As far as I know, it's race to two and uses the rules for PSP race to two. The points aren't back to back. You play a point and then the other teams rotate though playing their points. So, you will have time between points. the exact amount of time depends on the other games and how long they take.

so we'd play one, then the other teams would play one, then go on for our second, and so on?

Hated that format. You feel really rushed in the 5 man.

yes, it's based on the 2013 PSP 5 man race to 2 rules.

The nice thing is that you have more than 2 mins to get ready for the next point and get back in the start box. with teams of only 3 or 4 this is very nice. The bad thing is, you have to pay attention to the rotation. There should be a guy with a clipboard letting you know what games are up and where the rotation is. In general there will be a few minutes between games and each game will take 3 - 5 minutes.

This is a beginners tournament. I'm sure the refs and staff will work with teams within the realm of reason. CJs crew is always pretty good about working with teams. The goal is to have a good, fun day of competitive paintball.

I'm assuming were going to be playing on the new gi sportz field? Are we going to be able to practice on it before the tourny?

as bad as this is going to sound, i really hope not... we're coming down from sioux city and with this being a D4+5 tourney it puts us at a serious disadvantage lol, i loved playing the UNO series years back cuz it seemed like a new layout each time

I don't think it's a bad thing at all. I remember playing in a tournament where they moved a bunker or two after the prelims and after the semi's. You then got a little bit to look at the field before playing. Was sort of cool, mixed things up some. That's not going to happen in this one.

Sorry GP i'm not following, are you confirming that we'll play once, let the other teams play, then go back on to play the same team again?

I Apologize if I'm being thick, i'm just not familiar with race to two since i haven't played the format

okay, i'm not GP the great and powerful but i can try to shed some light on this.

taken from the PSP rule book. page 6, section 2- MATCH STRUCTURE, subsection- 2.1. RaceTo-2

"[5] With 4 opponents, a team will play one point against each of Opponents A, B, C then D; then play a second point against each opponent, then play third points as necessary"

This means it will look like this with 5 teams. (this is off the top of my head. The order may be different in reality, but it should be close)

rotation 1

round 1
A plays B, C plays D, E sits

round 2
A plays D, C plays E, B sits

round 3
D plays E, B plays C, A sits.

round 4
A plays E, B plays D, C sits.

round 5
A plays C, B plays E, D sits.

when you have done this rotation once you should have played everyone. You then do it again. There may be a 3rd time, but only with the teams needed to break a one/one tie. so.

rotation 2

round 6
A plays B, C plays D, E sits

round 7
A plays D, C plays E, B sits

round 8
D plays E, B plays C, A sits.

round 9
A plays E, B plays D, C sits.

round 10
A plays C, B plays E, D sits.

and rotation 3, only where needed.

round 11
A plays B, C plays D, E sits

round 12
A plays D, C plays E, B sits

round 13
D plays E, B plays C, A sits.

round 14
A plays E, B plays D, C sits.

round 15
A plays C, B plays E, D sits.

I'm sure GP or chuck will slap me if this is wrong.
