"I eliminated a bunch of people" since when is a scenario game a team elimination?
However, a crank firing double SP1 is a bit much, maybe you should find a middle ground?
So tell me then, if you say a pump player isn't "helping his team", then what grounds are you basing that on if not the (false)_perception that pump players can't sling as much paint and therefore get as many opposing players out?
And if eliminations aren't an important part of scenario paintball, then why do we bother shooting paint at all? Might as well just LARP at that point, no? Can't hold down objectives without eliminating players, can we? Can't get to mission areas without eliminating players, can we?
Regardless of if they're being covered by teammates or not, if a pump/pistol player manages to get to a flag and hang it, or accomplish a mission, how have they not helped their team? Would the team not have also helped to cover a player with an Ego if he were trying to do the same thing?
So if eliminating players on the opposing team, and scoring points that count toward the team's victory don't count, what, praytell, DOES "Help" the team? You have no valid point with any of the above statements. Try again.
