We had hoped to have time to do a 5 on 20 and had a plan to do it again the other way as a game 2. Finding when we got there that the pump games were already waiting to use the field shot that. That really was the bummer for me, that scheduling booboo.

If we'd have had time, they could've let people watch from the line between the moat and the edge of Bedlam with more behind where us opponents started. But they needed us off the field as soon as we were done, pump players passed us at the netting.
.
Hopefully uproar will be raised at CPX to give this event a happier home next year!

Was the general age level of the participants consistent with the ones in the third person video from the guy with the weird mask and dreadlocks on?

It said 1 v 20. It did not say 1 v 1 20 times.

lol I have to agree with you there. I was thinking it was MA VS 20 other people all at once.
Even if the other 20 were just using pistols it would be cool to see.

Im not really complaining Im just saying it was worded weird. Not to mention the "kill cam" footage of 1 VS 20 would be epic. Even if MA did get out it would be cool to see how many he got before he went out.

NSGSplatmaster, there was a good mix of ages, I think I was the oldest at 46.

Angel I know how you feel, I think they're just responding to the fact that pistol events are so fun and so universally overlooked by promoters. They wanted it to last all day, I admit I did too. It's going to change things, as fields and companies find out how pervavise the pistol underground is. When tippmann said they'd take the first 20 players to show up at their tent after 430 on Friday, I bet they had no idea they'd walk out of the tent at 430 and find about 50 people waiting already!

If it was 1 v 1 20 times, it was 1 v 20. He beat all 20 of us! Give the guy a little credit! If he'd have slipped the slightest in patience, timing, skill or if the breaks of the games had gone slightly different ways one of us would have had him. He didn't slip and took everything he was given, it was an awesome performance.

Flanking alone would make a 1 v 20atonce a short unfun game to watch, he's good, noone's magic though. That was why he contacted people for the 5 on 20 that we planned for, it would be more fun for all.

In the end I think what bugs people is that he won. If he'd have gone 19-1 noone would care how the games were set up!!!! All I can say is camp the tippmann tent next year and show us how it's done by beating him yourself. Good luck!

Until then all of this that's not directed to making next year better, carries the aroma of sour grapes, whether intended so or not.

Rob
