2015 RULES UPDATES

Both X1 and X2 will play RACE to 7 using the same proven rules and format we have employed for the last few years.  

For 2015 we have added a few new updates.

Rate of fire:
12.5 BPS will now be the MAX rate of fire for all X-Division matches, plus all Ultimate division 5man games.

Sideline Coaching:
For the 2015 season, sideline coaching will no longer be allowed. Coaching will still be permitted only from the staging PITTs

Layouts:
The final layouts for all of the events will be released on the Friday of the event.  Sample layouts will be released that will allow teams to play or practice if they choose.  However, no team or field will have access to the actual layout prior to the event.  Show up to walk the field on Friday, and you will see the layout at the same time as all other teams.

All of these changes are to allow for the top teams to move to the next level and fight to stay there

X1 / X2 Promotion / Relegation

NEW for 2015.  In an attempt to provide the same excitement to every single match played in the X-Division, the CPPL will be adding a format proven extremely popular in the PSP and other world class event series.  One team per event will be relegated to X2.  In addition One team will be promoted from X2 to X1.  These teams will play the very next event at the new level.  This will also help with the placement of teams in the proper division.  Once a team has proven it’s self at the X2 level they will be given a chance to play at X1.

Example.

4 Teams per Division

The single non playoff team in X1 will be dropped to X2 for the following event.

The X2 event winner will be promoted to X1 for the next event.

5-6 Teams per Division

X1 teams ranked 4/5 or 5/6 will play an elimination match.  The winner of this match will remain in the X1 division.  The loser will be relegated to X2.  The X2 event winner will replace the loser of the relegation match in X1 at the following event.

CPPL XDIV Series Championship Points

The CPPL will award only one overall series championship.  Series points will be awarded as follows.  Any teams that do not register for the first event in the division that they are qualified to play, and wish choose to play in a X-Division event must register and play as a X2 team, and earn an X1 spot by winning a X2 event.
