PSP changes field dimensions and adds 4 bunkers for 2013

Happy New Year to our teams, sponsors, staff and fans! The PSP has been very busy in the off-season spending weeks in meetings working on many developments for the 2013 season including enhancements to the referee program, field adjustments, new marketing initiatives and of course locking in the event dates and venues.



After careful consideration, the league has elected to put the following field changes in place:

1) Two additional bunkers will be placed on each side of the field for a total of 4 additional bunkers.

2) The playing field will be reduced to 150 ft x 120 ft boundary to boundary.

Many more details regarding the 2013 season will be released in the days ahead.

I am glad they shortened the field. Hopefully it should make for faster paced games

Good. More space between bunkers meant slower games, which meant more paint. Glad psp added bunkers and went to the old field dimensions.

That might be a bit too small. Its going to be like the 15 to 10bps jump, they may tone it back to 130-140 in 2014.
Either way, those who don't get shot off the break(and there will be a ton of those) will most likely suffer a lot of bunkering.

Also, the teams that play "smart paintball" like Damage, Heat, and Russian Legion that were dominating may not do as in the bare knuckle cage match that 120 feet is going to be.

However, in world cup the games were pretty low scoring and once a team got a 3 point advantage the game was pretty much over since nobody could come back and score 3 points quickly.

Thanks! That's exactly what I trying to remember. So this will be the smallest X-Ball field ever.


EDIT: looks like he was wrong. Real dimensions are below:

If it stops games going into stalemates like the World Cup games seemed to a lot of the time, then good move. Fast games are much better for spectators.

Any info on the new bunkers? Are they new types or just additional existing ones?

Here, lets release the "2013 Changes" in 2012, THEN right after the new year, lets release NEW "2013 Changes", I bet people will completely forget about the first press release!
While I think its a good move, I feel like one release of all the changes would be a more professional move instead of "Heres some changes- Wait, heres some more- and we'll go on and tell you more are coming, but we don't even know what those are yet trololol".

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
