The data and its presentation will evolve as we get better on collection and analysis. Ultimately we want the stats to be viewable by the public after each point (through webcast and PBA website) and are working towards that as well as having the team performance data available for coaches at the end of each day.
The stat collection is a complex process and expensive. We are committed in doing this to better organize our sport, give players the tools to improve their performance and archiving the information for paintball history. This is the beginning of the historical archive of our sport and will be a legacy product. 50 years from now people will be able to reflex back on the data that we are collecting today.
Cade Coleman is the head of the stat program and will continue to answer questions along the road.
Thanks for the support of PBA
I suggest asking players on the ranking system to see if they'd like to submit a short bio/about section for themselves (make it a bit more encompassing)
Also, two things you should look into (one for the sport, one for profit)
For the sport: track injuries per professional games. This would be a great metric to show the world how safe paintball really is (only seen on statistic before, and paintball is safer than bowling)
For profit: fantasy paintball. People have said it, they would play it. Whether you make it free and have ads or make people pay a few $$ for an account/etc, it will make money as the sport gets bigger. Keep this in the back of your mind for a next product!
Finally, just want to say I will be following this heavily. This is a great think to see for the sport. 90% accuracy is killer!
