What We're All about:
The VICIOUS Series exists to provide players with the absolute pinnacle of tournament paintball at the regional level in the central part of the United States at an affordable price.

Let's be honest, times are still a little tough, money is tight. Why try to play in a series where you have to play 4 or 5 events to win a smaller series prize package? We want to give you, the players, the best experience we can.


All tournaments this year are STAND ALONE events. Play one tournament, win awesome prizes.

----- 3rd Place: $150 Cash and 10 medals
----- 4th Place: 10 Medals

Entry Fee:
----- $600 per team

All entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. There must be a minimum of 10 teams registered and paid for the event to take place and these prizes to be awarded.

Roster Limits:
Division 3: All players must be ranked Division 3 or lower, but rosters may include up to 2 Division 2 ranked players. No-one ranked Division 1 or higher will be allowed to be rostered as a player for this division.

Our Expedited Format – Division 3 ONLY
How it normally works: Two teams play at a time: your team, and the other team. You play a point, get a 2 minute break. Play another point, get a 2 minute break. This process repeats until somebody scores 4 points and wins.
How it’s going down this year: Instead of having the 2 minute down time between each point where nothing is happening, spectators get bored, etc we’re going to fill that time. How you ask? Simple, with another game! While the first two teams, let’s call them A1 and A2 are playing their first point, teams B1 and B2 are in the pits getting loaded up. As soon as A1 scores on A2, their point is over. Teams B1 and B2 now have 30 seconds to run onto the field, reach their start station, and get ready to play. While B1 and B2 are playing their point, Teams A1 and A2 are loading back up for their next point. One of the biggest benefits is that you can potentially have more than the normal 2 minutes to get ready.

Now I know you’re thinking, “30 seconds isn’t enough time to get on the field!” It actually is. Because you still have all of the time it takes them to play their point to get loaded back up and cleaned off.
“But what if their point only takes like 20 seconds?” No worries, it won’t. And in the freak event it does, you will get a full minute to get yourselves ready in the pit, along with the 30 seconds to make it to the start box.
“What if in the excitement of the match, my guys try to go on the field at the wrong time?” Don’t worry; we are using custom built software for the monitors in the pit and spectator areas. The screen will change colors for each game being played. Teams A1 and A2 might have a Red background, while teams B1 and B2 might have a Blue background.

What makes this so great you ask? It’s faster. It’s more exciting to watch and play. Did we mention it was faster? Faster tournaments mean you get headed home earlier in the day, meaning you get home earlier, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t like that? Vicious played an event in 2011 that utilized a similar concept and it was non-stop paintball excitement.

** This expedited format will be used in the 2013 VICIOUS Series in the Premier Division events that have 12 or more teams signed up. If 11 or fewer teams are registered at the time the schedule is generated we will use the classical, one match at-a-time style of running matches.

Something not making sense? Have a question? No problem, we’re here to help! Email us at ViciousSeries@gmail.com or call the store at 402-502-3434

General Series Information For Both The Premier and Intermediate Divisions


Rosters:
All rosters must be completed 10 days prior to the event. This is to ensure that all rosters can be checked and confirmed. Any addition made after this deadline will be at a cost of $20 per addition, there is no charge to drop a player from a roster.

ID Cards:
All players and staff will be required to have paid for a 2013 VICIOUS Series ID to sign in at any VICIOUS Series event in 2013. All players and staff must also be in good standing with the league at the time of the event to be allowed to participate. Players and staff must also have an appropriate picture uploaded to their APPA player profile. VICIOUS Series IDs can be purchased through the APPA Website via your individual player profile.

2013 VICIOUS Series IDs may be purchased for $35.

Once a player pays for their 2013 VICIOUS Series ID they may sign in. Only players and staff with current, paid VICIOUS Series ID, and who are in good standing with the league, will be allowed to sign in.

Players may also purchase a PSP 2013 ID, instead of a Vicious Series ID. If you or your team participate in the PSP Series, we recommend this option instead, so you are only having to purchase 1 ID card for the year.

For the 2013 VICIOUS Series, all participants and spectators must be 10 years of age or older to be allowed on the property of the participating fields. This is a rule that is set in place by their insurance companies, and is not something we can control. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone, but this rule is in place for the safety of all players and spectators.


Rate of Fire:
All divisions will have a 12.5bps rate of fire cap and must be in a PSP approved firing mode


Match Start Times:
----- Matches will begin immediately following the Captain's Meeting the morning of the event. Players should plan on matches starting approximately 7:45am to 8:00am CST. Teams are only required to arrive and be fully checked in 90 minutes before their first scheduled match.

For example: if your first match is scheduled to start at 11:00am, you must have your entire team, staff and players, checked in by 9:30am.


Paint Info:
All VICIOUS Series events in 2013 are EVENT PAINT ONLY. Teams will not be able to use paint from a previous event at another event in the Series. We will have paintballs available starting at $50 plus tax per case of 2000 paintballs, and increasing prices for higher grades of paint from there.


Player Misconduct:
Player misconduct penalties can be assessed by any judge on the field, as well as the Ultimate Judge. Any action deemed to be player misconduct can result in a 1 for 1 penalty, 2 for 1 penalty, suspension, and or ejection. Actions deemed inappropriate can include swearing, hostile physical contact between individuals, throwing equipment, or just being a poor sport and making the event less fun for other players (this includes taunting, counter-coaching, being a jerk in general, etc.)

ABSOLUTELY NO FOUL LANGUAGE will be tolerated from any players, staff or spectators. While we understand this is a competitive event, it is still a family event, and should be fun and enjoyable for everyone involved.


Color Restrictions:
The color yellow is a banned color in the VICIOUS Series in 2013. We understand that some players have yellow or gold parts or bodies on their markers. If you have one of these, you will need to submit the marker to the head referee for inspection prior to the event to see if you will be able to use it or not.


Some Clothing Rules:
All players must wear long pants and a long-sleeve jersey type shirt. Player clothing may not have excessive holes, rips, tears, or anything else that would inhibit a referee’s ability to monitor a player.

Metal and ceramic spikes and cleats are not allowed at any VICIOUS Series event for 2013. Track spikes are acceptable as long as the spikes have been removed. This is done to ensure the safety of players, staff and the fields.

Player’s clothing worn on the field may not contain the color Yellow, as this color is banned for the 2013 season in the VICIOUS Series.


Spectators:
Spectators are encouraged to come out and support their team. We require that fans respect the officiating staff as well as all of the players at the event. Counter-coaching, as well foul language will not be allowed by any player or spectator.


Hotel Information:

Hotel information will be posted for several hotels close to the field in a separate thread.


Media:
The VICIOUS Series does not charge for media passes. However, as media, the VICIOUS Series’ only request is to make all other media files available for the players, families, and friends to enjoy. Photographers interested in attending any of the VICIOUS Series events this year should email ViciousSeries@gmail.com to inquire about a media pass.



Field Layout:
The VICIOUS Series Events will be played on their own unique layouts, which will be released 2 weeks before each event.

no, they could not.

it would also cause a problem if the teams had to play eachother? because then neither team would have staff, and only 5 players

Sounds good! However the 2 min in between points is not enough time. We have 6 players and that's real hard to get podded back up, clean up, and tag back up. Wish you guys would consider an extra 30 sec. It would help out a lot. We don't have 8 players and 2 staff helping us so its real hard...

2 minutes is the standard time between points used by the the PSP in all divisions, as well as many other leagues.

I would be more than willing to discuss some helpful pointers to use in the pits that will help keep you guys organized if you'd like to send me a PM.
