2019 NXL Chicago Layout is out! Get ready for a crazy center and different snake side

The Chicago stop often has a different snake side and this year is no different. 2019 brings us a crazy snake and no corner bunkers at all! The National Xball League (NXL) is coming back to Chicago in just two short weeks and they are bringing a new layout that will test players all over the field.

It's not too late to join in on the fun and play or watch NXL Chicago!

Sooooo, I guess diehard snake players that can't play any other spot and corner players who don't ever want to leave their corners are all out of a job this event. I want to see how this plays.

Field looks sweet, Can't wait to see how many people just wrap on that Dorito side and keep going up the field. That middle 50 is gonna be a blood bath tho of bunkering out people and im guessing a few major penalties lol.

At first I hated it, but now I'm starting to almost like it.

D side looks great, nice big bunkers so some teams can try to play the pocket, people will get torched trying for SOB, center looks strong with a high likelihood of run throughs.

Unique that's for sure.

That snake looks like old school 300fps era stuff. Love it. Get out of those corners and bunker someone!

The corner bunkers are usually key bunkers on the fields.

You usually have to send a back player out to each corner to get as wide as possible to make sure no one can move and protect their front players. That’s their job, usually staying there most of the game until right near the end - if they are part of the winning side.

Not having any or having really small corner bunkers makes things a lot more difficult for those players and does usually force the game plans to change.

It is an interesting layout, I look forward to playing it hopefully...

This layout looks like you need to make the 50's and hold them to win. Chop people up trying to get there and pinch the back of the field out.

Finding a way to shoot the Snake gap between the beam and the 50 is going to be crucial to stopping that snake from getting there and trying to wrap if no one is in the small cake or the wedges hoping to snatch up a careless snake player kill. With no corner support, we should see the inventive players rise up and the joystick players suffer. The 50 fortress doesn't seem to have a good angle to kill the 50 snake brick. Cannot wait to see all the stabbing that should take place on this field.

The D side looks pretty straight forward but that 50 fortress will be super unique in how they play that. Lots of opportunities to lose people later in the game in the D Side and the 50 fortress.

Overall I am super excited to see how this plays.

That is a pretty serious threat. I got my @ss kicked by a spider monkey when I was a teen. Those little F-ers fight dirty!

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.
