What does it matter? You should work on everything equally. But if theres anything that most teams need to work on constantly, its communication. You'd be surprised how many times 2 people can take out an entire 5 man team with good communication.

1. Field Awareness (Knowing zones, lanes, key bunkers, where the opponents are, where your teammates are, etc. Can't communicate without this.)

2. Communication (Calling out positions, opponents eliminated, teammates eliminated, holding zones, making coordinated moves.)

3. Good Breakout (Getting to your bunker, getting to the right bunker, shooting at the right positions, good laning.)

4. Gunfighting (Being able to shoot with both hands, playing tight and not getting hit, snapshooting, posting, wrapping.)

5. Agility/Dexterity (Sliding well, running low and being able to dodge paint, dodging paint while snapshooting, and overall flexibility.)

1.) Snapshooting/accuracy with your awarness
2.) Movement/Placement on the field
3.) Communication
4.) Gun fighting
5.) Agressivness

Really i think they shouldn't be in rank you need all of those to be a good player. Like "Jack Bryant" said communication is number one i think that is a good spot for it because if you watch pro paintball all the time you see a guy get out because he didn't even know that a guy was at a certian spot and it gives you an advance awarness of what to do when communicating. Well peace catch me on AIM at:
