New Tactical RaceTo and Pump Divisions at the PSP Chicago Open!


Show Your Technical Skills in the New Tactical RaceTo and Pump Divisions at the PSP Chicago Open!

Do you possess superior precision shooting, communication, and movement skills? Can you make every shot count? Or might you simply want to reduce the impact on your wallet or affordably double up on your play time? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your team will want to play the new Tactical RaceTo or Pump divisions at the June 23 - 26, 2011 PSP Chicago Open.

Tactical RaceTo builds on PSP's current world-famous RaceTo format, adding one enhancement: Each team starts each point with a full hopper for each player, plus five 140-round pods to divide up amongst the team. Give a pod to each player, or give them to your back players, or give it all to the player who has to hold down that key lane into the snake. The decision is yours, and in Tactical RaceTo, these decisions matter.

Tactical RaceTo will not just bring new strategy elements to the game and put greater focus on communication and precision technical skills, but also cut paint consumption by up to 80%, dramatically reducing the cost to compete.

3 new divisions will be offered:
Division 4 Tactical RaceTo-4 (Thu-Fri Prelims, Sat-Sun Playoffs) - $2,600 Entry
Division 4 Tactical RaceTo-2 (Sat Afternoon Prelims, Sun Playoffs) - $1,000 Entry
Open Pump RaceTo-2; Classification Counts as D4 RaceTo-2 (Sunday Only) - $500 Entry

Prizes for all divisions:
1st Place: Free Entry, Trophy and Medals
2nd Place: Entry, Trophy and Medals
3rd Place: Entry, Trophy and Medals

How is your stamina? Think you can complete the paintball quadathalon? Players have the option of playing on up to four teams at the Chicago Open: One Traditional RaceTo team, one Tactical RaceTo-4 team, one Tactical RaceTo-2 team, and one Pump RaceTo-2 team.

Teams playing both Traditional and Tactical D4 RaceTo-4 will not have any schedule conflicts.
Teams wanting to play both Traditional RaceTo-2 and Tactical RaceTo-2 should request to have their Traditional RaceTo-2 games scheduled for Saturday morning to avoid conflict with the Saturday afternoon Tactical RaceTo-2 prelims. Traditional and Tactical D4 RaceTo-2 playoff schedules will not conflict.

Teams wanting to play both Traditional RaceTo-4 and Tactical RaceTo-2 may sign up for Tactical RaceTo-2 through the evening of Friday, June 24th, providing a great way for RaceTo-4 teams who may have been knocked out to use any leftover paint to get more play time. Late registration fees will be waived for any Tactical RaceTo-2 team with at least 5 players who played RaceTo-4 at the Chicago Open.

Similarly, registration for Open Pump RaceTo-2 will remain open through the evening of Saturday, June 25, and late fees will be waived for Pump teams with at least 5 players who played in other divisions at the Chicago Open. Because Pump prelim play starts Sunday morning, conflicts with playoff games in other divisions are possible. Teams who make the playoffs in another division and would have a conflict with their Pump games may withdraw from the Pump division up until Saturday evening.

PSP is very pleased to provide extra opportunities for players to play even more paintball at the Chicago Open. Make sure you take advantage! The first registration deadline for the Chicago Open is Friday, May 27th, so visit PSP Events - #1 Professional Tournament Paintball League in the World to register now and secure the lowest entry fees!

Be sure to complete registration before your division fills - Prices increase May 27th!

I like the idea of the format, but wow those prizes suck especially with a $2,600 entry fee.

Good on the PSP. Seems like a good way to expand the league

Same here. Great idea, it will force players to think before shooting.

And there is something I don't understand... why are entry fees so expensive in US ?!
In France for example, each pump event of our national pump championship cost 150 Euros per team (approx. $220). Ok, our championship is not as famous as NPPL or PSP, but we have fun and it cost only 1/10 of PSP fees.

In Germany one OSC event cost 90 Euros...

Can someone explain me why is it so expensive ?

I like the idea of limited paint semi tournaments.

It'll be interesting to see the pump turnouts. NPPL has a hard time getting many teams outside of socal/vegas.

Either way it shows that pump/limited paint is becoming more popular.

Sweeeeeeet! I've heard rumors for ages, and now, they've finally come true.

Nice.

$500 is the right price! Perfect.
