Oh hello tr4gik.
It was ok, I mean we never really played again seriously after CPL summer '05 (we placed 13th? or 16th something?) We came back and played a few lans here and there in the CGS era thinking that maybe we could catch some of the money that DirectTV was throwing out at the time - played buy.com CGS qualifier/newegg lan fest and a few others. Then won the online qualifier for the CGS season 2 combine. Tied complexity on lan on nuke and after that tournament and visiting the playboy mansion we gave it up because clearly that was never going to happen again. Everyone was off in college and didn't have the time to play anyways.
We put the team back together last season and just showed up for matches (mostly played 4v5 because we didn't have backups). Once you have responsibilities it doesn't allow you to put in the time you need to compete with high school kids.

Now that I am older and have more of understanding for the game I can see why certain players were needed for a team. Chaos and max were smart and could hold a route but would hardly win a one v one against the top players in the game where Kellen, dorito, and Marshall would frag like sobs.


Why are skill and self-control mutually exclusive in your mind? Dorito and deadbeat were the best players in the game because they were faster and had better aim and made better decisions than anyone else at their positions. Watch bryan's movies and ask yourself how often was he in a bad position and had to make a great shot to stay alive... and count those versus the times he was in a great position and hit a good shot that he made look easy. And that's in a movie, where someone's showing off his ability to hit incredible shots.

I don't expect you to know this because I don't think you've ever sniped, but the hardest skill to learn for a sniper is to not shoot, or to shoot slower. Call it self-control, or patience, but it's something that you have to train yourself to do if you want to be the best. Being able to tell the difference between someone showing their left shoulder to bait a shot and someone peeking with their left shoulder is fucking hard. If a sniper can't do that, they're not good. They're toast against anyone good. Your team straight up loses middle on rr2, and any other map with sniper windows, if your sniper can't do this and the other team's can. There were a lot of cal-i snipers that couldn't do that. Were they more or less skilled than snipers that practiced that level of self-control and visual recognition? You actually have to be faster than people that shoot at that shoulder bait if you want to be able to recognize it and then react. If you're that fast, you realize you can train yourself to be better than everyone else and you go do it. This applies to a ton of other situations where not shooting as fast as you can react gives you an easier, more consistently hittable shot.

x6 was the best because we had more skill and made better decisions than other teams, not one or the other. coL was likely the same, although I didn't play with them so I can't speak for them.

p.s. Max was taking rounds off carnage in ra3 at our Lethal Gamers bootcamp. He had really fucking good aim. If you associate proning (to ensure kills) with bad aim, it's because you've never been good.


nomercy > x6 !

One version of ve was 3.1 while the other was after. I believe the second go round the roster was something like tkz, plex, holeman, tofu, max nig/poopship.
Yeah, the first ve (betas) was nig, poop-ship, tkz, dune, sgt pepper, bsoul, alcatraz, dawg etc. They added strife, plex, and ub3r in late 3.1 when 101st and iLan died.

The first ve also had (if i remember correctly) myself, cope (played as R3B3L at the time), BMS and chewiealf i believe.

Lololol i thought i played in ve for a while but i honestly couldn't remember. I do remember my old name though. Damn avenger your memory is sharp. Before that i played in CoW and 7thID or some shit. Almost 20 yrs ago cot damn im old
