  1. I don't want to have a foolish back and forth with you, so I will avoid quoiting you after this. Your comment is a blatant reminder to everyone that you do not have the slightest clue what competition consists of. We'll chalk it up to your lack of experience. But you can always brush up on sports economic theory, game theory, etc. You can start here as a little introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Team_composition
  2. Could it also be that EG (CLG's main competition) is significantly weaker after losing Lethul? There are a number of factors at play. Furthermore, my post was not addressing you in particular; there was a far more egregious post by some poster a couple pages back.
  3. There is a major difference between stating that Ogre2 was a weaker player than Royal 2 and Snakebite at this game and the outrageous claim that he was being carried for the past couple years - which is one borne out of an agenda against the player rather than backed by any concrete evidence or rationale.
  4. Oh same couple haters calling Og2 washed up?? People were saying the same thing back in H3 2008-2009. And then he went on to be an essential part of the most dominant H3 and Reach team (a team that dropped a single game over two tournaments). You don't get carried to an event win and top 2 placings. It simply doesn't happen. Absolute rubbish and I'm interested in seeing how things will play out.
  5. This is not a question of respect. This is a question of rating these guys' achievements. You can respect Lebron and not put him on the same pedestal as MJ. They are in no way comparable and no team ever will unless competitive Halo somehow comes back from the dead. EG is undoubtedly the best H2A team. There is no argument therein. But one has to understand their run within the particular context.
  6. At a different game (H3) that they barely practiced. OGRE1 had basically retired before the 08 season rolled out. This is ridiculous man. h2 actually had a lan scene and a much bigger online competitive scene. The standard was higher then, not now. Go look at Warlock by comparison, and look at how many assists teams were racking in the final season. Better teamshooting, better understanding of the game, execution, what have you. The game had a lifespan of 3 years with many more tournaments. EG has been around for 2 years, not 3 and they've participated in far less tournaments.
  7. FB dominated the game at an all-time high level of competition and participation when the game had a 3 year competitive life span. The talent pool and competition is orders of magnitude lower with H2A. Outside of EG, CLG, Denial, I doubt many other teams could even crack Top 8 at H2. The top teams do not even LAN anymore. I'm sorry. Teams practiced a lot more back then and the amount of people playing along with how long the game's competitive lifespan was drove the top players to play the game at a much higher level than we have seen it being played. For example, you take any of the 2010 Top 8 teams back to 08 and they'd blow the competition away. FB's gameplay was more refined, drilled and sophisticated than what EG's got going. Only department that EG has an advantage in is Towey. You can't compare this era to pre-Reach. It's day and night. BAck in H3, you had like 6 teams lanning at the Joe Fries/Totz house before events. This discussion is a joke.
  8. Less slopiness on objective from CLG and theyèd be solid. Good control of rockets and immense pressure on hut throughout the game. Shouldnèt try to have forced those flags hut side, they dont usually do it and could have paid for it.
  9. The plasma stick glitch in CE is my favourite trick ever. I remember when I discovered it on my own. Got stuck in the face in a wizard match, then meleed the wall out of frustration right before the nade blew up and I didn't die. ah, the good old days man
  10. No, I'm saying that I am intimately involved with people and families that are affected. For me, the word simply doesn't refer to those children and I have never used it or use it to denote children with mental ******edness. It's my opinion, and the discussion is irrelevant in this thread.
  11. I volunteer at a daycare for physically and mentally handicapped kids (I deal with kids with all sorts of musculo and neuro degenerative diseases, autistic kids, down syndrome, etc.). I still use the "r word" colloquially from time to time, but please don't accuse me of being insensitive or insinuate anything of the matter, when I spend a good deal of my free time playing and taking care of affected children. My comment on WFX is essentially making reference to Ryanoob's personal claims about his "in-game intelligence" throughout the years and the reputation he seems to have built, which I believe is as far off the mark as imaginably possible.
  12. They're not successful by any means. They can give you tough games, but they're not winning anything.
  13. The WFX guys are just not good. They play like a bunch of dummies (relatively). Tough to play against because they're a bit unorthodox, but the way they play is ********.
