    Hey guys,

    Just want to get a feel for what teams will be playing the IPL for 2011. Some decisions need to be made based on the amount of teams out that can commit to play.

    Financially it was another difficult year for the IPL and we need to assess what we can offer the players.

    The general idea is that if enough teams are interested we can run a full season. These events would fall 1 or 2 weeks prior to each Millennium.

    Otherwise if teams cannot commit to a full season we can arrange that a smaller amount of events are held.

    Would love to get everyones feedback on what teams are up for this year and what they can commit to.

    sorry if they are silly questions but if you don't know then ask

    what is the general format and amount of games?

    Is it still to be at Barrage?

    Is it still buy site supplied paint?

    No exact format has been decided on. We want to get as much feedback from the players here so that decisions can be made.

    Last year the format was Race to 4 with SPL rules except 3 minute turnaround as opposed to 2 mins

    Usually you got a minimum of 2 XBall games with a maximum of 4. However some events saw a max of 3 games. All depends on how many teams are registered.

    Last year it was site paint only at €40/box. We tried to get tournament grade in for each event however we were let down by the site a couple of times unfortunately. I dont know what kinda of deal we will be swinging this year.

    All events were held in Barrage last year. As Barrage is the only site with a full MS field we will be holding the event(s) unless other opportunities arise.

    Hope that answers any of your questions. As always we want to facilitate the players as much as possible and the best way to do that is to listen...

    Any feedback at all regarding the IPL would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    We keep saying we are coming over and I believe the amount of game time and paint cost maybe the stumbling boxes, so will watch with interest

    is there any other field in the country thats willing to fork out the cost of a millenium bunker kit with absolutely no profit being made on it? we should all be thanking our lucky stars that barrage and anarky even bought supair kits.

    Dusty Ask someone else....

    We'd buy one in a flash if people would use it, problem is even if we did put up a brand new field no one would use it anywhere close to often enough to make it worthwhile.

    To be honest I am shocked that the Old Wolf did in the first place, as Enemy says be thankful that John has that much love for the game that he made the effort....

    Good luck to the IPL committee, hope you guys can pull everything together...... ;)

    okay guys we've kind of gone off topic. So far I havent really heard much back from teams. So far its looking like Reapers and Karnage are still up for it. Anyone else out there? Wildfire? Escarmouche? Anarky? DIT? Fear? Marvel? Irish Rage?
