Not to be a killjoy - but if one wins simply by picking only the winning team members, doesn't that go against the concept of fantasy teams? In fantasy you are picking a team based on how individual players will perform. Not if they play more matches. In fantasy football the "season" is over before actual playoffs begin. Perhaps in fantasy paintball the rules should restrict fantasy players to only receive points in prelim matches...and the same argument could be made for the season stats. Better teams will provide players of equal skill levels the opportunity for more kills, points played, etc. This inflates their rankings. Damian Ryan stayed near the top this year because he still played relegation games almost every event. If infamous didn't play those extra 3-4 matches would he of been in that position?

Something to think about as the stats head into their third season and fantasy paintball comes about. Would really like to hear the powers that be opinion on why Sunday matches should count towards stats and fantasy.

This was a discussion among my fantasy pool. I thought relegation games counted before re-reading the rules after I'd made my picks.

More on your point, one could argue that looking at a team's history for total points played at an event gives that much more opportunity for kills, and gives a greater advantage to choosing players on teams that don't tend to dominate at 7-1s, but maybe win with 7-5s or 7-6s. 13 points gives one match the possibility for 6500 points in kills alone where a 7-1 only gives 4000, etc. Close games end up being stats-padders.

The highest producing players by raw numbers were Archie, Damian Ryan, Grayson, and Fedorov. The rest of the 6000+ point club included Solnyshkov and Scott Kemp.

The best over-producing players by percentage were from Aftershock and X-Factor, making up 8 of the top 10 over-performers by percentage.
