1) Ale messaged me in the morning and said that his PC crashed, so he cannot command us. Subsequently I wrote _K_ a mail if he could command (backup comm).
2) I explained Groentjuh the server settings a few weeks ago, I am also disappointed that uphille leap is still disabled. However I cannot understand why some players cancel the entire cup... Maybe messaging Enes would help.
3-5 ) I dont like such an attitude. You know how pug cups are, you know there are better and worse players, with more and less dedication. All these things may unfortunately happen, but In my opinion its simply weak and cowardly to give up after the very first match. If you dont like the situation change it, dont run away. This message is not only relevant to you, it is for everybody that wants to leave the competition. Of course you guys can leave right now, but I don't want to see you again signing up for a competition, such a behaviour is simply not trustworthy.
Few things I want to comment here:
1) OK, I wish Ale would write that in his forum so I would know what happened before "competition-time" but that's ok.
2) I don't know Enes/Vectile/SoulPheonix.. it seems those who can message them don't want to participate themselves due to that uphill thingy. And as we both are disappointed I find no pleasure in playing against strong teams with me and the remaining semi-pro players that are left.
3-5) I don't know how pug cups are. I know I asked Ale not to elect me in the first place to his team because I preferred any of the other comms much more.. and still I stayed. He missed the match and I had to play with an even less capable comm yet I stayed. but playing again without our pro players or without our semi-capable comm is too much for me. I know KoKo feels the same.
If you decide to disqualify me for that then I expect you disqualify Trig, Shag and Slizer from future cups as well.
And how about those players that sign-up but never show a sign? like Enes/Vectile/SoulPhoenix.. isn't that worth disqualification? I am not expecting everyone to come to every match but these guys are not even in pub.. they just signed up and left Savage for now so they skew the balance made by the pug/script.
I am not looking to win, I am looking for a fair chance.. and I cannot get it with all top 4 players not playing.
Also I cannot do anything to change it as Shag and Slizer don't work for me..
If main team players are not willing to give it a chance I see no reason why I should suffer another fiasco game like this.
regarding last match: I've been to some very "thin-chance" clan wars like EoN vs -KS- yet it was always under the boundary of a "competitive match" where both teams top rosters tried their best and the comm communicated his tactic before the match and during. While this.. It wasn't competitive.. I mean it wasn't close to what a pug should look like (dividing the pros between the teams rather than most of them stacked in 1-2 teams).
It was just a free win for ES's team which didn't even look for a fair match.. they just wanted the W whether we show up with 2 players or with Phoe in command.
It was just pathetic... one team (us) can barely communicate in English (with half team not in teamspeak), has no clear tactic, has no top-notch players, have no pro comm.
The other team is communicating well, came with almost full roster having the best comm in Savage..
For me.. no fun.
