: See above. I think the NXL is the hot ticket to get paintball on TV right now - they've got the top teams, and a spectator friendly format - the coaching adds good drama too. I don't think the NXL being on TV will kill off all other paintball tournament formats though. Look at the ESPN paintball tournaments from the 90s - open speedball fields.

Im basing my observations from talking to some of the promoters. They (psp events) simply dont give a rats as* about non-x-ball formats teams. They want to push everyone into x-ball. I agree that x-ball seems to take longer but remember they play for 1.5 hours per day sometimes twice a day for 4 days. I dont think thats much longer in fact I think its shorter than playing or rather sitting around all day to play 4 or 5 games of 10 man per day.
