What an excellent event to kick off the 2020 season. The new teams played shockingly well, Damage and Revo were really impressive, and it was great to witness Ironmen's first victory in over 10 years! Congrats to Todd Martinez and all the players and staff!

But the folks at GoSports have some work to do... Wasn't exactly a fan of the new overlay, the scores seemed to be wrong during most matches, you can't rewind during the live stream, and they removed the kill count????? Not sure what's going on over there, but I did really like the new cable cameras. Lots of cool angles we couldn't see before

Wooo as a fan this weekend instead of a player for once I enjoyed the games played.
Field layout was awesome and produced some great games to watch.
Cable camera was also awesome, and about 90% of the time so was the camera production/switching.

The bad however, how hard is it to keep correct scores up on the screen, or the correct teams even at times? Super frustrating especially when the split deck makes you forget what the score was. Forget anyone who doesn't understand they were all probably lost.
Myfanwagon is great and all, but man the data is everywhere, it's incomplete, the website experience is frustrating at best. Too many click paths to even find the team you selected for the drafting or picks, not to mention it logs u out about after every 30 seconds. Gosports has some of these issues as well. All these great ideas but man slow down and make some of them work well before adding more features.

Also congrats to Nick slowiak whom probably deserved this win more than anyone over the last at least 8 or 9 years of bouncing around teams. Playing every point and sending your former team packing TWICE, not to mention that sweet 1v1 oooohhh baby.
Lj parrish FINALLY gets his chance to shine as a number 1 featured snake player and look what happens. Congrats fellas you both deserved it was super fun to watch

ALL OF THIS!!!

The score overlay was super frustrating. Maybe it would be easier to just put both sets of scores up at all times and grey out the set that's not playing.

I don't need Matty Marshall apologizing every point about the scores being wrong.

Super stoked to see Nick and crew win it all this event. They had some great matches to watch.

To add on to this, the fact that some team names were cut short across the scoreboard was a little ridiculous, as they had space for more characters. I like the way they changed the overlay and worked to make the interface look cleaner but it was extremely buggy.

This was such a refreshing finals match to watch. The competition has been getting tighter and tighter every year and seeing the Ironmen take it home was great.

Was the motto for the final "Do or Dye" Nick?

I'll see myself out.

Congrats on the win my dude!

My bad. I was repeating what someone else said and I think they misspoke because I haven't heard of it at all. My guess is they were confusing the powerhouse divisional award. Arod won MVP and the golden barrel for most kills. Two separate awards.

overhead views were a cool upgrade. Rather see more of that than the close ups on either side. Too often a camera is focus on the snake while they announce a big move on the D side that is off camera. Too hard to cut back and forth so quickly but the overhead view gave a good look of the entire point.

The close ups on the replays are great. In game though they should try to focus angles more on covering as many active players as possible like other sports.

The 'Golden Tank' is an actual tank-top shirt. I kept telling A-Rod he had to wear it. It was a black tank with Gold lettering.

He'd do better with a "Golden guitar strap" really

I'm really intrigued to see how the IM continue to perform for the rest of the season. Another team in the pro ranks can now step onto the field with the understanding and confidence that they can take down the tournament they're playing (another angel gets their wings). I think that mental aspect is probably the hardest thing to achieve at the pro level & I couldn't be more excited to see how this plays out.

Also, not to be a hater or anything, but I'd love to get a gosports interview from Kyle/Trevor after this event. The content would be epic. Two of the biggest free-agent acquisitions of the season get picked up by a powerhouse team to then lose the first tournament of the year to the team they just departed.

That's the interview I want from Matty.

LFG!

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.
