don't worry about not getting acknowledgement from the other top teams. From the perspective of a player and a team that always strived to be at a top tier level I have to say you all (hb, col, x6) had your time. There were times I would scrim or play a match against anyone of the top tier teams and say to myself hell even we could beat them or wow that team is going to win it all. I don't want to say a team got lucky but maybe they did or maybe they just practiced a little harder for that match and it worked out in the long run. I think the big game changer all came down to intelligence and self-control. Teams like hb and risk had crazy amounts of skill where teams like col and x6 had grandpa like self-control and experience, they always did the right things at the right times.
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. It's all relavent and maybe it's only the difference of a few small plays and a few more hours of practice. Who knows, who cares now. We all know who was the best team: n2p/Eximius. Kthx
Thats a good way of looking at it, I have to agree with you sir.
