They have to quit giving the upper teams the byes against the higher teams in the prelims.

Blah, getting back into paintball is expensive. Either that or I have an expensive taste...

Don't the bottom teams in every division have the option to bump down?

Definitely an interesting way to do things. It does seem a little strange that some of the best teams can have an "off event" and then you won't see them back competing against the other best teams for at least two events... Not sure I like that. Although I do overall agree with the concept of promotion and relegation. Just seems that it should be decided over a little longer. Maybe I am just used to football (soccer for the foreigners here )

I hear rumours that it will be more Pro teams from other series playing rather than bumping up D1 teams, but it's a good question.

They definitely had to do something if they were going to let more Pro teams in. I (as I am sure most here) didn't like the situation at Cup that left many teams who should have gone on, at a normal event, out of the running and done after winning 3 out of 4.

The Challengers division will be the Pro's who don't make the cut, and other teams "who will be named at a later date"...

Does the current Pro Division mean the teams that played World Cup or that played the whole series?

That will change things significantly.

If the other teams are teams like XSV, Impact, Ton Ton's etc. Then if they play for the first event as Pro, or in the second event as Challenger for the change to move to Champion... will be a big question. I can't see Bart being happy if his new team doesn't play the first event.

Where are they left playing in the first event if they are not part of the current "Pro" group. Do they sit the first event and just play the second one on?

How do you win the series? What if at some point you became a challenger but still win the series? Do you win the Challenger series too? Can you win the Challenger series? Does that even make sense?

Interesting but lots of questions before this is going to work for everyone...

It's okay. Tired of getting 8th anyway. You look at the top 10 teams and it could be a brawl to get there. At least it takes away the advantage they gave to the top 4 all of last year. They will have to earn it as much as anyone.

I like the idea of relegation, I'm just not sure if I like it being every event. We'll just have to see how it plays out. Will be kind of lame to not be able to see those games on the web cast though. They should still play on the pro field for the web cast. My .02.

I'd say a yearly relegation is better almost... This system seems weird.
