The trend seems to be:

When in doubt, just choose Xfactor's starting line. You're almost guaranteed to make the top 100.

Yeah, Slowiak killed my list. I also had a few other high scorers on my "lemme just make a team" but i decided to try and be all fancy and do a spreadsheet and forgot that the first rule of paintball is that anything can happen.

Don't take it personally, Nick. My metrics showed that you had one of the highest possible efficiency scores of all the players (factoring in the "salary", kills, points, penalties and HOBs). Plus, I'm a fan, so I would have picked you, anyway.

Slight side note--APPA has PSP scores for matches going back to 2010. Are there any other data sources for 2003-2009? I can get the schedules, but I can't get the scores.

Yea I did, but my last pick for my roster kind of killed me with 4 gross majors.

Now the question everybody is dying to know:

Did you use a "dart at the board method" or "moneyball" it?

The last winner, I would say, "darted" it.

I'm guessing he just picked the all around best picks for the money, instead of "moneyballing" it. Or maybe a combination of the two?

The last winner picked his own team. He coaches Xfactor and picked Xfactor players. That's hardly the dartboard method...

Respectfully, I disagree. While I agree that it's not a complete random sampling (ie. Monte Carlo), I highly doubt he applied any sort of paintball sabermetrics equivalent. By the podcast after World Cup, he even jokes about he's the "fantasy paintball master." I, honestly, think he did his selection to instill a sense of confidence in his players with actually winning the contest being a happy side product. I can, however, see your point, John.

I guess rather than "dartboarding it" I should have said "choosing without overthinking," a "gut feeling," or something to that effect.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
