I'm not saying I expect a 100% return. And you are correct, I failed to factor in our prizes won. I'm not trying to *****. I'm fine with any prize, really. It just seems like if you play events and win prizes, the series prizes should be bigger than the event prizes. (And I mean this broadly, in anything you do, not just the MPS or paintball. Just seems how things should be in the overall outlook of things.) Just my 2 cents worth on that.
Something that could be worked on is player ranking system. We were accused of "sandbagging" multiple times. By the APPA ranking system, EVERY member of our team was qualified to play L4. Personally, this has been my first season playing. However, it has been mentioned before that a true beginner team shows up to an event and gets demolished, and that makes tournament paintball very off-putting to them. Something should be done about this to help out those who are trying to get into the sport.
Another thing is series points. Our team would have moved up to play L3, but we had a shot at winning the series. I don't know if there is a way to set things up to where a team can bump up and keep their series points (I know this would not be fair to the teams in the level they are moving in to). But just a couple ideas that crossed my mind throughout the year.
Like I said, just my 2 cents worth here. Not trying to piss anyone of or sound *****y. Congrats to all the series winners.
