2010 Changes for PSP and Phoenix Open Date

For the 2010 season, PSP has decided to make some changes:

1.) Events will now be 3-day events, Friday-Sunday except for Chicago Open and World Cup which will be 4-day events, Thursday-Sunday

2.) a. Classification will be done differently. A player is no longer forced to bump his/her APPA classification status if he/she has played in a higher division for 2 events. Class promotion is now based on performance.
b. Older events count less to a player’s APPA status

3.) a.Entry fees are now based on format of play (i.e. Race to 5 or Race to 7) and not by division (i.e. Div4 or Div1). Depending on which format your team plays, is how much your entry fee will be.
b. ” Prizes will also be distributed with greater emphasis towards rewarding teams choosing to compete in higher divisions.” I guess this means the prize winnings will be increased but that makes me think that the entry fees will be higher.

RoF for each division will remain the same for the 2010 season

The first event of the season for PSP will be the Phoenix Open on March 19-21, 2010 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ.

Registration for the Phoenix Open begins on January 19, 2010.

2009 World Cup Webcast On Demand but Not Really

PSP has started releasing the 2009 World Cup webcast footage. To my recollection, it used to be free but now it’s not (which is lame). In order to watch a match, you have to pay $2.99 and download the video via itunes (i assume it’s through itunes, it says something at the bottom of the page about going through itunes to get the video). So it’s not really an on demand type of thing, more of a pay per view but i assume you get to keep the video after you have paid and downloaded it.

There are 60sec previews but it’s not even worth it watch those. I only watched the previews for dynasty vs damage and x-factor vs red legion and you see little to no game footage, just Matty Marshall talking. I understand that it’s a preview but a little game footage would be nice.

X-Factor Tryouts

this has been floating around on nation for a while but for those that haven’t heard, pro team X-Factor is having open tryouts.

This was posted by Grayson Goff of X-factor on PBNation

When:
X-Factor will be having OPEN tryouts Dec. 12th and 13th. Registration will be between 8-9am, playing by 10am on both days.

Depending on the number that show, we may be making cuts on Saturday. We will be starting an event on facebook so we know how many of you will be attending. If you don’t have facebook, just reply here or send me a pm so we know you’re coming.

What we are looking for:
We’re looking for 2-3 Texas based guys to round out our pro X-ball squad and commit to a full year of paintball. A semi-pro team will also be formed and act as a farm system. If you don’t think you’re PRO material yet, the semi-pro team will be a good start. Details on sponsorship and any other questions will be answered at the tryout.

Premium will be sold at $50 a case, with free entry.

If you’re already planning on coming out, please let me know so we can already start evaluating you if you come out any weekends before. Like I said earlier, I’m out there every Sunday so just find me and let me know you’re interested.

Please check back with this top post for any changes or updates.

Thanks!

Try that link for the facebook event. If that doesn’t work, just search for me (Grayson Goff) and it should be up on my wall.

UPDATE!!!!!!!!
Ok, I’m getting alot of PM’s about out of state people. This is an OPEN tryout so anyone is welcome. We will be practicing twice a month for the most part of the season. If you can’t commit to that don’t waste your time coming out to Texas. Thanks!
