Really cool seeing Alex win the MVP. He's always been a stud but overshadowed by other players on his own team.

Also, this was one of the least enjoyable layouts I've played on in a while.

Yeah the more I played it the more I disliked it. Don't think anyone will ever bust this one out for local events.

And of course congrats to Dynasty, great to see them firing on all cylinders. I'm very happy for Mike Urena as well he seems to be hitting his stride.

Why did you guys dislike it? It was fun to watch.

It seemed like those teams that got used to being able to hold fields and counter-punch were not ecstatic about this field.

I'll be honest I'm not sure exactly why I didn't like it. Just wasn't my favorite and it got old fast.

I didn't play it because I'm getting ready for the ICPL in a couple weeks but watching it I have the same complaint I have about pretty much every layout. It seems like every layout I've watched for the last 5 years or more comes down to getting to the 50 snake first. I'd like to see a field where the key bunker was somewhere else. Granted it's a different format but I think they did a really good job of doing that with the Ultimate Shootout they were doing last year. There were probably 3 bunkers on that field that if you took them first you could really control the game. I'd love to see a massive center 50 maze or a D side that controls the field.

Another event where Heat dominates in prelims, and lays an egg on Sunday.

Congrats to Dyansty.

Shout out to LVL for looking like a completely different team and killing it in the prelims. That match against Impact was one of the best I’ve seen in a while.

Been saying that for years but someone will chime in with a different opinion of how the league is growing!

Its not a growth thing, its more financial I think. A ton of teams skip this event just because its difficult for a lot of players to pay for this entire event, then turn around 6 weeks later for Cup, which is by far the most cost prohibitive event.

Ideally I think they need to space out the majors more. Like:

February

May

August

November.

They need at least 8 weeks in between these events.

Totally agree with you. LVL played out of their minds in the prelims and I was rooting hard for them but they were simply outmatched by X-factor come Sunday. That 15 second point or whatever it turned out to be was performed flawlessly and was a joy to watch.

I look forward to seeing if they can replicate this performance come Cup.

Congrats to dynasty

NXL literally turns down business. Came with the family after work as a SPECTATOR not associated with anyone.

No tickets for sale a big **** YOU for coming to try & watch. all the booths shutting down early before the event was over everyone basically quit including the refs.

Got to talking with others there and concur there was less than 1% outside paintball family/friends spectators there. Its not drawing people to events its turning them away….. Im in a huge rush to bring the family to the next one 🤣🤣😂😂😂&#x1f 602;

This is the first event I have not watched since the inception of the NXL.

Why????? I had no idea it was going on this weekend. You would think we would get a heads up on PBNation but I guess the NXL can't afford the $125 At least we are getting news ups that the NPPL is back!

Feel like you're not including a lot of context here bud. What day and time did you attend?

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.
