paintballWhile the NPPL was holding its season-ender in North America, the Circuito Sudamericano de Paintball (South American Paintball Circuit - CSP) was holding its finale in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela.

The series started with its first event in Guayaquil Ecuador, then moved on to Santiago, Chile, to Sao Paulo, Brazil, then Lima, Peru, and Buenos Aires, Argentina before the final tournament in Caracas.

Despite torrential rains leading up to the event and during field set-up, the weather cleared, only delaying the start of the tournament for an hour and a half, before leaving the games rain-free.

The field layout was altered slightly from that which was originally planned, with the addition of small tombstone bunkers in the central bunker structure designed to make a side to side transition more difficult. Despite the change, the bunker arrangement lent itself to fast paced games, with only two running down the clock over the entire weekend.

paintballThe CSP plays a 5-man format game, and the Caracas event saw play for Division I and Division II teams. Reminiscent of how most national series tournaments used to be played, the tournament's preliminary rounds were played interdivisionally. The teams were divided into two groups of eight and one group of 7 and played seven round-robin games against all of the teams in their group (the group of 7 played 6 games with a bye.)

Division I teams played following PSP equipment rules, meaning their markers were allowed to fire more than one shot per trigger pull after the third pull in a series. Division II players were restricted to true semi-automatic setup - one ball per trigger pull. This meant that match-ups between D-I and D-II teams in the prelims had the D-II teams definitely fighting and uphill battle.

Based on their total scores from the preliminary round games, the top two teams from each division (6 D-II and 6 D-I) within each group were advanced to the next round.

Fusión made it through the round as the second ranked D-I team, though their finish in the tournament was not so critical.

paintballAccording to promoter Fernando Guerrero, the tournament proved successful for both Venezuelan paintball sponsors and the CSP. He says the success of the league's season and professional appearance of the game site and the teams at the final event has paved the road for additional future investment in South American tournament paintball. He he hopes to see an increase also in the support of North American sponsors as the CSP moves into the 2007 season.
