4 Player Handicap Tournament Series
4 Tournament Rounds,
4 minute game Time.
The 4Play tournament series is a new concept in modern paintball tournaments. It allows the new player to compete in a tournament were restrictive rates of fire allow greater movement develop skill and introduces them to this great paintball sport without the fear of being outgunned by high rates of fire. Also by only having one division and handicapped accordingly the new player competes on a fairer playing field for the excitement of winning. Players now have the ability to develop skills and teamwork so if they choose to play in the Seven Super Series they have a foundation to build on.
They are going to be held in Brisbane , Townsville . See below for the contacts.
Please read through this very exciting concept and get your teams together or put you name down to join a team.

4Play series Seed Points System, teams will earn seed points based on number of teams participating in each tournament round. Seed point will accumulate for each event that the team competes in. Teams must retain the same team name and at least 2 players from the previous round to retain 4Play Series seed points. The number of teams participating at each tournament round determines 4play Series Seed Points. The 1st place team at the end of the prelims will earn 1 point for each team at that tournament of the series. Each subsequent place will earn one point less.
For example 12 Teams attend:
preliminary Rounds Seed Points
1st Place 12 points
2nd Place 11 points
3rd Place 10 points
4th Place 9 points
5th Place 8 points
6th Place 7 points
7th Place 6 points
8th Place 5 points
9th Place 4 points
10th Place 3 points
11th Place 2 points
12th Place 1 points
For example 8 Teams attend:
preliminary Rounds Seed Points
1st Place 8 points
2nd Place 7 points
3rd Place 6 points
4th Place 5 points
5th Place 4 points
6th Place 3 points
7th Place 2 points
8th Place 1 points
The top 4 teams play off in round robin finials against the 3 other Finalist teams, playing each team once.

Final placing Seed Points
1st Place 5 points
2nd Place 3 points
3rd Place 2 points
4th Place 1 points
If team Dirt Bags finish the prelims in 3rd place and there are 18 teams, and they then go on to win the tournament in the finials. The Dirt Bags would earn
16 seed points from their prelim 3rd place +
5 seed points from their 1st place in the finials
Earning them a total of
21 seed points from that tournament

12.5% deduction per Grade 3 player on field for that game
Team Fudge Packers have taken to the field with 2 x level 3 players, 1 x level 2 player and 1 x level 1 player. The Fudge Packers win the game with a grab and a hang eliminate all the other team and lose 2 players. Fudge Packers earn
20 points for the grab
40 points for the hang and
40 points for the 4 eliminations
Giving them 100 points for the game then the handicap is applied
2 x level 3 players @ 7.5% = 15%
1 x level 2 player and @ 2.5% = 7.5%
1 x level 1 player @ Nil
Team Handicap = 22.5%
Game points 100 less 22.5% (22.5 points) =77.5
Team score is always rounded up after handicap if a .5 occurs resulting in the Fudge packers earning a score of 78 points from the game. At this point the lost player penalty is applied.
Fudge Packers lost 2 players which will affect their score as 78 points less 2 x lost players @ 1 point each (2 points) = game score of 76 points.
With the handicap system in place a team of 4 level 3 players would need to win twice to match a team of 4 x Level 1 players, and a team of 4 x level 2 players would need to win 1.5 games to match a team of 4 x Level 1 players winning 1 game. This in effect gives the newer players a fighting chance to keep pace with the more experienced teams in the Prelims round to hopefully earning a place in the finials.
