The Proto XPSL kicked off its 2005 season in style with games on the new AstroTurf fields at SC Village on Corona, California. 

SC Village has held its position as one of the world’s most famous paintball fields by constantly innovating.  It is the birthplace of both the barrel plug and speedball.  The 2000 tournament season opened with an NPPL tournament that was the premiere event for SC Village’s expansion – SC Arenas.  The arenas set a new standard for paintball fields hosting tournaments – all concept fields with netted walkways and sidewalks. 

For 2005 the fields have been stepped up another notch, adding artificial turf fields to the complex.  This location, historic to paintball, made a potent backdrop for the start of the 2005 XPSL tournament series. 

Sixteen teams competed in the amateur division.  By the end of the eight game preliminary round Naughty X Nature, a home team from SC Village’s sister park, Hollywood Sports, ranked first, having lost only a single game.  Damage ranked second and Street Hustlers third.  The Novice division was larger, with thirty teams, though only the top sixteen moved on after the prelims were completed.  It was the Misfits that led this group after their first eight games, having gone undefeated, followed by Invasion and SD Aftermath. 

Thirty-nine teams competed as rookies, each battling to be one of the top 16 teams that would advance to the next round.  Indecent topped the rookie pack without losing a game, followed by Mixed Company which was also undefeated.  The young guns division, the largest age limited regional tournament circuit in the US, drew out twenty teams.  These players, limited to having been born before January first 1990, were bucking to be ranked in the top eight, to advance past the prelims.  Like their sister team, Naughty X Nature Kids topped their division, with a single loss.  They were followed immediately by Rikter7 Team A, and Team CC Paintball.

The top teams from the prelims went on to Sunday’s quarterfinal rounds.  The surviving teams went on to the elimination based finals.  For the Amateurs Street Hustlers defeated Team Damage and X-Players fell to The Edge.  This pitted the Hustlers against the Edge.  The Edge won, taking home first place and putting Street Hustlers in second.  Team Damage defeated X-Players for third place.

Novice team Total Chaos defeated Team RIP, and Triple Splat beat Anarchy Factory.  Total Chaos won over Triple Splat, finishing first.  Anarchy Factory beat Team RIP for third.

Shadow Company beat Mixed Company in the first round of rookie finals, while Indecent defeated Epic SCP.  Indecent took down Shadow Company for first place, and Mixed Company beat Epic SCP for third.

The Young Guns finals started off with Rickter-7 Team A falling to SCP Kids Vegas, and Thunder Kids being taken down by Inflict Kids.  SCP Kids Vegas defeated Inflict Kids for first place, and Rikter-7 Team A took third place from Thunder Kids.

From SC to SC, for the next leg of the XPSL the tournament turned from SC Village to Santa Clara, with an event scheduled for April 29th through May 1st.
