So Revo gets the call up to challengers halfway through the season because of unforeseen circumstances with Storm. And will end the season in the champions division competing at World Cup. That's pretty awesome. Those guys must be on cloud 9 right now.

Yup. Simply an amazing season. Now if they can hold their own in Champions, that would be a almost unbelievable. They'll get a taste later today against Xfactor.

Revo has already won against X-factor once in the prelims, so we'll see if they can do it again.

Hopefully Dynasty will be able to stay strong together as a team instead of having internal conflict and break apart after such a bad event in their team history. Go Dynasty.....

Best $15 ever spent on a webcast. Drama, action, shock, climax, and intrigue.....it has had it all. My only regret is that I forgot to make the popcorn.

The implied change where the bottom Champs play a game against the top Challengers to determine placement within Champs for the next event (ie. VFTDB) should be reconsidered (ie. instead of the usual top go up, bottom go down). The current format is hard on the Champs teams, but better overall for the talent quality found among the Champs/Challengers division as a whole. Honestly, the only people complaining about the current format are the Champ "regulars" (ie. Blute) who feel threatened by the Challengers breathing down their necks. I say keep it the same. The cream will rise, every event will be entertaining, and the overall quality of talent will only rise. You keep what you kill and you have to earn that kill. The Champs division isn't about inflating the egos of the current members. It's about who's determining who the best race-to format players are in the world. Period.

It's obvious, IMO, that even one event where a Challenger team faces the "dogs of war" in the Champs division is a team defining moment for the better. They'll likely lose, but they'll get a taste so that they only come back harder and better. Which can only benefit the audience more.

Reconsider PSP.......reconsider.

I wouldn't mind if the top two Challengers and the bottom two Champs from the previous event played on Thursday of each event to determine who plays in which division.

However, it would be a crime to do away with relegation all together. So much more pressure and drama this way.

I like that idea. Relegation matches should be played at the beginning of the event not at the end.

It would make for a great cliff hanger from one event for the fans.

I was actually saying that Sundays should play out exactly like they do.

However, before the next event starts, we make sure that the up and coming Challenger teams are actually better than the Champions teams being demoted.

Actually sounds good. Some times there are teams that get relegated from Champions, but you know they would beat the teams that is getting promoted. But at this point, I don't even know anymore. A lot of the top Challengers teams and bottom Champions teams are beating even top Champions teams. The skill gap is getting narrower. Would it make sense to possibly expand the Champions division?

I honestly love it how it is. I am sure that some of the teams hate it, but it would be a crime against the viewers to change relegation and promotion too much because it makes it so much more exciting.

The purpose of champs and challengers has been fulfilled. The gap between these two classifications of teams has narrowed significantly.

As a long time Dynasty fan, seeing them in challengers for Cup is a bit sad, but its a wakeup call. I'm not sure the reason why they slipped so far from their performance earlier this season, but now they have the time to work on it.

That is... if they keep their roster together in to next season.

The other big storyline is that Impact is actually stronger after losing top tier players to Heat. Impact seems to have made the best off-season moves.

The gap between the top four challengers have caught up to the champs. The rest are dog ****. If people can't see that. Then their blind.

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.
