Millennium Champions/Challengers Format


I'm a country member!
28 of October, 2016


In 2017 we present a new “Ultra-Competitive” system in Champions Paintball League!

We have taken this step in order to put a system in place for fresh teams to move into an even stronger Champions League.

During Mediterranean Cup in 2017, 20 Millennium Professional teams will compete against each other. Why the change?

By increasing to 20 teams they will play in divisions of 5, so all the teams will play 4 matches instead of 3 in Qualifying rounds, introducing more competition and more variety of teams played.

The top 10 teams from that event will move on to Millennium Event #2 and play in CPL.

The other 10 teams from Mediterranean Cup will compete in the newly established division - CPL Challenger, with the same format and rules.

Based on the results of event #2, the relegation/promotion system will be applied.

The bottom 2 teams of CPL will play a game against the top 2 teams of CPL Challenger in order to decide if a team gets promoted or relegated (Play Off).

This system of constant circulation will continue event by event for seasons to come. It is now more important than ever for teams to give their all in each match – as they no longer have just one goal of winning the event – but must perform at their top in every game to make sure they do not suffer the consequence of being knocked out of the CPL. Likewise, the CPL Challenger teams at each event have the option to perform and move up for the following event.

What is your beef with the Mac?

You could look at this one of two ways:-

1. The MS are doing it for the good of the sport, to increase the Pro talent "pool";

2. The MS are doing this so they can charge a higher entry/licence/whatever fee for the Challenger Division and get that bit closer to the solid gold mansion they've been saving for.

At least Nexus get to stay pro, which is one good thing. Provided they don't ***k up.

CPL Changes 2017
After much constructive feed back and discussion from many CPL teams and other interested parties the Millennium has decide to not introduce the Challenger system for the 2017 season.
We will be however continuing with the expansion of the CPL to 20 teams in groups of 5 teams giving 33% increase in matches for all. This goes a long way to improve the player experience, spectator and media interest providing all with more opportunity and more challenging and less predictable results.
This move will ensure that the CPL is the premier league to play in Europe if not the world.
The millennium thanks all those that have contributed constructively to the discussion.
