How many cases should we budget?

Western Kentucky is trying to play this year in AA race to 2. We are wondering how many cases of paint to budget for? I was thinking about 30-40 cases for the weekend... Not sure since we have never played an NCPA event.

Are you talking about 30-40 cases for one event?
Usually depends on the number of teams.
For example last NEIC event there was only 4 teams so we only got two cases a person which is about 12 cases.
more teams = more games = more paint being used

Right now 10 teams signed up. So since it race to 2 would you say 1 case for each match? That would be about 20 cases for both days. And we could do 25 cases and use any extra for practice or next event we play a week or 2 after. That was we for sure have enough?

I think you will be fine with 25 cases. See if they will let you return any unopened ones. Some fields allow you to do that , or just keep it for practice

Ya that would be a good idea as far as returning some. I just hope they can send them down there. We are sponsored through valken so will be using their paint

I think UW-Whitewater shot 21 cases for our A line, and made it all the way to finals. But we also had a lot of quick games. So 25 should be more than enough.

For class AA we shoot 12-15 in prelims. Pretty much every event.

ya we trying to play NCPA world cup AA. But we are planning on buying 20-25 cases at the moment. If we only get 6-7 guys to play we probably will bump that down to 15-17 to save money. Does anyone know what prices will be there at the event?
I know evil runs around 45 at local events here so we were hopping to get something like that for around 40 if we pre-order that many cases.

Get Kenny to order the paint and just have the empire guys haul it down to the event for you. Pick it up from the truck.

Event sponsor paint only. So only GI, dxs, or empire paint.

So 20 cases should be more the enough? And in everyone's opinion would you play it safe at 20 or risk it at 15?
