Will PSP Pro players require chips in their markers similar to the NPPL?

Can't wait. When will the SMP/PSP site be up to show off these stats?

I think I heard somewhere that they were actually using them in PSP pro last year.

This is what the UWL has been doing for 3 years and it adds a lot of interest for both players and non players comparing each other and their stats. Im guessing it will also list out the equipment and paint that player uses and any penalties. That will be awesome for sponsors and also to REALLY see who the dirty players are.

I was thinking about this for a while. Like the back of baseball cards. Like wins/losses, avg. gun fighting ratios, player position, height, weight, set up, team, number, etc.

I have no idea how can you possibly track those stats, when sometimes a
player that shot someone out is not 100% sure it was his shot that did it.

but if you can do that, it might just be the "missing link" for the fabled tv
exposure, that some people seem to think as the salvation of our sport...

I think more important tha a K/D Ratio is a point by point W/L Ratio. Some players don't get a ton of G's but are still instrumental in producing W's.

This is very interesting indeed.

Paintball Sports Promotions is pleased to announce some exciting changes for the 2012 season. PSP has a solid history of advancing paintball and setting new standards for the way our sport is promoted, perceived, and played. With player and team assistance, we have pushed the format of the game forward to bring our fans the most exciting action and the most memorable rivalries. The PSP Webcast continues to set new standards for the way our sport should be presented to the public and allows us to document the evolution of paintball, as it happens and in real time. Over the years, Paintball Sports Promotions has been presented with opportunities to help foster dramatic change with both the direction and perception of our sport.
This year, Paintball Sports Promotions is excited to announce that in addition to our premier format, exceptional referees, and unrivaled Webcast we will be the first National Series to document all Pro Player/Team statistics during the full 2012 season.

As Pro Players/Teams, you will notice new faces, new equipment, and new requirements to ensure that all of your efforts on the field translate to proper data collection and recognition. We want to make sure that every Pro player receives the opportunity to showcase their individual dedication to this sport and their commitment to their team. With these new statistical data elements, we are moving away from the subjective and toward new and necessary objective measures of skill and talent. Who really and truly are the best players in the sport? We are about to find out.

Pro Team Owners/Coaches/Captains:
One of the first things your players will notice during Pro registration is the new requirement to identify their style of play as either ‘Back’, ‘Mid’, or ‘Front’. We are asking that each team owner/coach/captain work with your team members to help them define themselves at a team level. Each Pro team will be asked to meet a Minimum Roster Requirement of 1 Back player, 2 Mid players, and 2 Front players. Please make sure your players understand their position designation will not change during the 2012 season, and will be used to compare their performance to all other players within their position designation.

In addition to the minor registration changes, all of you should have seen the 2012 PSP Jersey / Loader requirements. These new requirements are designed to assist our staff during the collection of on-field performance data. Please work with your players to help them understand the importance of individual statistics not only for your team, but also for the sport as whole. Cumulated team/player statistics have become vitally indispensable in the management and entertainment aspect of other sports. With your cooperation the PSP 2012 Pro Season statistics will add value to almost every paintball related conversation, from Internet fan debates, to contract discussions surrounding sponsorship.

If for any reason a Pro player misplaces their jersey prior to their match, the PSP will have standard blank jerseys available for the player. If wearing a blank jersey is a violation of any sponsorship agreements please make sure your team makes all appropriate accommodations to ensure every player is in uniform.

Paintball Sports Promotions understands that the collection and distribution of Player/Team statistics will be the next evolution to legitimize the Professional aspect of our sport. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation to help us achieve what we believe to be a monumental shift in the historic timeline of paintball.
Love it. thank you.

No, that's not it.

The PSP is requiring that there be space that is 4" by 3" for a league provided loader sticker at least on the right hand side of the loader.

Pro Teams are speculating that will help identify players and not just be a big PSP sticker.

Why must we continue to alter OUR game in order to make it appealing to the outside world that has CHOSEN not to care ?? In 2003/2004 it was stated that getting paintball on tv was a necessity and doing so would thrust the game into the limelight. And where are we ? "Using" stats in this manner is like telling me that if Madison builds a giant sports stadium, a pro team will move in to fill it. But it's not that easy. We can't continually put the cart before the horse and assume success. The focus needs to stay on today's customers (players).

Because stats make the game better for US too, and raise the skill level of the game overall because teams will start being formed moneyball styles.

This is a great idea. I still think that putting a few seconds delay on the coverage so the live editor can cut to a camera *before* the action happens for watchers (but obviously after it actually happened) would do significantly more for the screen watchability of the sport than this ever could, but still a great step.

how do you accurately measure kill count for each player, especially during breakouts when 5 guns are up off the break?? seems like a headache, unless players are supposed to acknowledge the # of suckas they blasted after they come off the field every point

I don't think they are solely doing this to garner appeal from outside companies. If you ask me, this is just a huge step within the paintball industry to legitimize the Pro division and give the fans and other players discussion topics they can supplement with concrete numbers and statistics. If it brings in outside attention then so be it. And if it doesn't, we haven't lost out on anything we didn't have before.

Because without steady growth (ie: MONEY), the sport will die. Unfortunately, you have to cater to the lowest common denominator at some point to be successful in business. Stats get people talking about who's the best, and why. Getting that conversation started with something concrete, rather than the current "J Rab's gear is so agg, bro" - type discussion is what will get grown-ups interested instead of the 12 and 13 year-olds.

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.
