Yeahh would be nice to get airline tickets before they cost an arm and a leg

And I agree Vegas wouldn't be too practical cause of the costs, unless it was known about for a while. Which obviously isn't the case hah

The PSP schedule was released on January 14th, 60 days before the first event (which had a location).

It is now 59 days until the second event, and we have nothing but a bunch of speculation on where it's going to be. 6-8 weeks in advance is the sweet spot for purchasing plane tickets.

This is getting ridiculous. Now I imagine most of PSP efforts are concentrated on Dallas, so can we even expect info until after that, two weeks from now! Can we at least get a date when we can expect information?!

Add those cost on top of your normal event fee's like entry,paint, hotel , and flights and you've spent quite a bit if money.

Just go downtown. Everything is much cheaper there, and still very much Vegas.

Trying to make it a Vegas vacation is what will make it expensive.

Edit: I agree that it's taking too long for information on the second event to come out though. This is getting a little ridiculous, especially when you consider WillBunkerforFood's comment about them being focused on Dallas right now.

On Feb 18th Camille said that we would have information on the second event and what not real soon...Been two weeks since that and still nothing. I'm sorry but this year is just very unorganized. I know psp has a lot going on getting everything prepared, but we shouldn't be kept in the dark waiting. I don't get what's going on that's taking this long? Because I really wanted to pay 400$ for a flight....not.

Is that weekend set deal for event #2? For me it would be ideal if they moved it back one weekend. The weekend they have it at is the weekend before my final exams. I'm not trying to be delayed and miss my chemistry finals.

PSP: "Oh man, one player has finals that weekend, we better change the schedule!"

...yes, that date is confirmed, just not the location.

the last time we spoke with anyone at the PSP the date was confirmed. we have multiple players with finals, and graduations that weekend.

That's the finals for a lot of people, not just this one person. Luckily my finals are the week afterwards so I can't complain but I just wish they could avoid the Finals time in general and try to squeeze 2-3 events into "summer" Doing one the end of may, beginning of July, middle of August makes ALOT more sense then what they are doing now.

That's a lot of funding to have the tournaments that close together. If they were to do that then PSP would be better off doing 4 events. As of now it is 5 and we will have to wait and see where this 2nd event location will be. But I am sure the PSP wants to make sure the location is ready to accomodate such a large group of players and families. And most likely make sure what happened at the 4th event last year doesn't happen again.

Ya... Considering a decent portion if their target market is in college. Having the a tournament around finals time just seems moronic. I for one won't even think about attending.

Last year the venue for event 4 changed from Top Gun to OXCC. They did it I beleive was 5 weeks before the event. So from New Jersey to Maryland. So I would think Camille and the staff want to make sure everything is okay before they give the okay.

Oh man, will you please think about it? They're like, totes gonna cancel it now...

The committed players will always find a way. It's a three day event anyway, I'm positive they'll fill their brackets if they get the location released soon.

I don't want them to cancel and I wasn't being a douchebag like you seem to think you ought to be. I was just stating I think it's a mistake. I highly doubt they sell out the event like they did for Dallas. Near every team I've played with against or for had at least a key player or two in college. It's just bad marketing to make people choose between a hobby and their future.

If it's not profitable, then I'm sure they won't do it.

If it is profitable, then committed teams will always find a way to get there. If you believe one or two players make a team then you haven't been playing long enough.

seemed to work pretty damn well last year. and i know i heard talk of OXCC signing with PSP to host more events because it was run so well.....

you can't plan a tourny location based on tourist stuff. again, the needs of the many (great place for paintball) outweigh the needs of the few (you combining your trips/days off). PSP cant lock down locations just for paintball, i would hate to see how long we'd have to wait if they planned based on local attractions.
