CPPL XBALL Championship - September 27/28th
Due to feedback from many teams wanting to try this original format, but struggling to make it fit with the CPPL series schedule we have decided to push the event to late September. This should allow teams to play this event if they so desire.
The event must have at least 8 teams registered to be run. Cut off date for for registrations will be September 18th. If not enough teams show interest, the event will be cancelled.
The event will be played on the turf field at Paintball Action Games in Edmonton, Alberta
Play the Original X-Ball (NXL/CXBL) Format!!! Teams will play a full match of two 25min Halves the match will end on time, not points. This is XBALL as it was originally designed! Have you ever wanted to play the same format as the great NXL teams of the mid to late 2000’s? This is your chance!
Divisions of Play
For this special event we have altered the division system. The XBALL Championships will feature two different divisions of play.
X1 - This division will feature all players and teams that currently play in Division 1 of the CPPL X-Division. Also included in this division will be the top 3 Division 2 teams playing in the CPPL D2 X-Division.
X2 - This division will feature all current D3 X-Division teams plus the division 2 teams that did not qualify for the X1 division.
Entry Fees / Paintballs
Due to potential of higher paintball usage, this event will employ a different fee structure. Paintballs will be sold by the CPPL at $60 per case. Marballizer and Formula 13 will be available. All paintballs will be the same price. Thank you to Empire Paintball, their support has enabled us to discount the marballizer cost for this special event.
Entry Fees for this event will be:
X1 $500 / X2 $400
Rosters / Matches / Prizes
Teams will be permitted to roster up to 15 players. Teams will play 3 matches min over 2 days. Playoff teams will play 1, possibly 2 more. Cash prizes will be paid to the top 3 teams in each division. 90% of all entry fees will make up the prize package.
