Updated with the closest thing we will need. Jared is going to make a few small changes to the rulebook I linked and email it to me. I will print em off at work and get everyone a copy.

Here this might make understanding a little easier.


xball
It's kind of a combination of hockey, soccer (or football), Nascar, and paintball. Essentially, you play multiple 'rounds' where the objective is to score a flag hang (like a goal or touchdown). The round is over when time is up or a point is scored. The hockey element comes in because you can get 'power-plays' by other players being put into a penalty box for a certain amount of time. This usually occurs because of swearing, cheating, playing on, etc... Also, one key difference between normal paintball and X-ball is that there are sideline coaches (like football), and any spectator can shout anything they want. It definitely adds an interesting element!

During an X-ball match, the players shoot a TON of paint. The Nascar element also comes into play. One, you need a pit crew. The time between rounds is so quick (60 seconds) that you need 3-4 people who just grab fresh pods from a box and slap them into the player's harnesses. Two, the pit crew must clean up all hits and wipe masks down for the players. It looks like a security checkpoint off the field, because the players stand there with their arms out to the side, and the pit crew is wiping them down, pulling out empty pods, adding fresh ones, then pushing them back into the start gate. It's a fast and furious game

Basic rules for REAL x-ball are this.

Two opposing teams on symmetrical fields, with 5 players from each team on the field at any given time.
Two halfs, (15, 20, 25 minutes)
Their is a flag in the middle of the field. The players must take the flag, and tag the opponents penaltybox/start zone. This ends the match.
Once the flag is hung, their will be two minutes in between matches or "Points". This allows the teams to catch breath, clean hits, remake breakout plans, pod up and air up.
Repeat for X amount of time till half ends.

After the half ends, teams switch the sides they are breaking out of.
The score at the end of the second half determines the winner

General rules:
Sideline coaching is allowed, even encouraged.
Instead of one for ones or two for ones, timed peanltys are the the punishment for overshooting, wiping, etc. A minor is one minute, a major is two minutes.
once a player is eliminated, they may not talk until they are in their staging area.
Players that are on the field and still "alive" are able to switch gear, but a live player cannot switch gear or guns out with a already eliminated player.

Penalty Box:
A player can be pulled from the field, and based upon the infraction, put into the penalty box for a fixed duration
Once the penalty duration expires, the player can return to the field
Closest comparison: Hockey
After a flag hang (goal occurs), one (1) of a team's players in the penalty box is automatically returned to the field
