New Open Teams, how's your season going?

Back in my first season of open, Mana made a thread with a similar title. It was nice to hear how other new teams were doing, as well as to get some advice from experienced players. It's always interesting to hear what the newer open players/teams have experienced, now that we're at the halfway point.

How are you feeling about the matches you've played so far?

How are scrims going?

How is your schedule?

Any highlights, lowlights or memories stick out from the first half?

As a team, what problems are you guys running into? Any problems you've found on an individual level, whether it be issues in your play, or the grind of a season?

How's your team fitting together on a personal level?

Have you noticed any significant improvement through 4 weeks?

For the Newbie Mix Teams: How has the jump from mixes gone? Do you feel it has been a worthwhile adventure?

For some context don't forget to link your team page so we can get the context of what you're talking about, as well as preferably your role on the team. If you have any mentors/coaches you want to attribute some of your development to, that's cool too.

Okay. Everyone gets tilted during scrims and we never have 6 for matches. Our younger players are clashing a bit, and our team has cohesion issues. We got destroyed in every match because we're low open. However, we've fixed some of the problems from the beginning of the season. Our mentor, shadowpuppet has a full time job as a paramedic and we've been dashing about in the pastures and meadows of low open.

Sounds like you've had a hard start, but at least you guys are still alive! It's good to hear that you've been fixing some problems as well. Have your scrims with other low open teams been close? And have you figured out what is causing the tilting?

I mean we're tilting because of the mistake we have yet to fix. A major issue is that my team either spreads out and doesn't focus damage/the objective or bunches and gets pushed past. My team also has an infuriating tendency to takes loads of spam right before we push, especially our combo scout and demo.

just some motivation for new teams

in my first season of esea, we got 5 forfeit wins in a row, and proceeded to get destroyed for the entire rest of the season because we didn't actually deserve those wins

we stuck together after that and made playoffs next season (then went 0-2)

every season since then has been tons of fun and I don't regret any of them

Had scheduling issues with my first team so I left.

Second team was frustrating to play with and I felt no improvement with them despite mentoring + demo reviews and I left after playing 1 match (which was 5v6 and we won, but the team died like a week later). This was week 1 of the season.

I'm just sitting here with league fees paid and nothing to do. Fun times.

Soooo this is us here

https://play.esea.net/teams/122830

Real quick, I suck at writing. I just barely passed my entire educational career in any English based classes so don't yell at me.

Show Content
To make sure you don't think I'm stupid, I took advanced maths and engineering classes for my entire school presence and got all A's.

So far I believe all of us, both on an individual level and as a team, have learned so much, and the season isn't even over yet, awesome!

Yeah, we may not be winning (anything) yet, but when has ANY team brand new to a sport been top dog? I find that keeping that in mind and telling ourselves that this season is for us to learn really helps. Another amazing aspect is that you get to witness the true dedication that everyone has as day after day we get together and try our best to learn, with each week bringing on a new set challenges for us to engage in. We've had a few bumps along the way but honestly I personally feel that those bumps have brought us together as a team more so than anything else thus far has.

From the very beginning we were (mostly) all strangers to one-another and the only thing we had in common was the desire to play TF2 (literally that was the only thing we all had in common, and I think its safe to say that we pretty much "hated" each other in one form or another).
By the second week or so we noticed that our schedule was absolute crap and l was convinced and that we somehow upset someone, somewhere. But we kept on playing the video games. At one point though, in our losing streak, we all came together and had a serious conversation to ensure that we were all on the same page, and that we all wanted the same thing; to improve ourselves and learn how to play together as a team.

Yes, we may still have some issues here and there, but doesn't everyone? Its just part of the learning experience after all right? Making sure to sit down after every scrim and match and discuss what each person saw as what went wrong, staying up to an hour later sometimes to ensure this happens. We are also fortunate enough to have Deathy(yyyyyyyyyyyy?) as our mentor/coach, who takes time to go over map reviews, STVs, and give us general advice almost 24/7.

TL;DR:
Our schedule sucks eggs, we are still losing, and there's a snake in my boot. But we are determined individuals who continue to strive for excellence.

All of that stuff I mentioned above allows us to still function as a team and still allow us to play now, and not just quit out of frustration or anger.

Thank you to everyone who has shown us support so far and encouraged us to keep going. Even the formation of this thread goes to show there ARE people out there who are looking to better the competitive community.

Lastly, in case any of my teammates happen to read this, thank you so much for putting up with me and I hope to continue, and enjoy, playing with you guys as a team.

Here is our original and current roster list in addition to highclass who's an amazing sub for us and is almost always there for when we need him.

-Funke
-Geckko
-Highclass
-Skippa
-Smak
-Valtroid

OH and thank you to the numerous Subs we have had play for us, both as semi permanent and as one scrim stands.

We have had a broad spectrum of substitutes play for us in scrims and matches, from a guy who had literally downloaded TF2 for the first time to ring for us, to a certain "very goooood" engineer main.

Honestly the most fun I've had in tf2
We started off okay but switching to pocket made us a little worse because I'm trash but we picked up a new medic and just played a great game so hopefully the rest of the season goes a little better.

Shd, knowing deathy you got a really great coach, and I'm glad to hear he's been so dedicated and helpful. Stories like these are what make these threads cool.

I'm glad both of you guys are super enjoying your seasons and 6s on whole.

Chex dude here.

Team: https://play.esea.net/teams/119798

Had a rough start with a few pretty high level teams to start us off, roster issues towards the 4th week, and because of our skill level, sometimes a lack of scrims. Even with our shit Win - Loss ratio our team has the drive to finish out the rest of the season. We hope to finish out the season with as close to even as possible and to grow as teammates as well as individually. A lot of our success was due to the guidance of many friends (listed below), we are very thankful for that. Our entire team has tilted, some matches more than others (yay viaduct). Overall though it's been a learning experience, and it will definitely will help us progress going into the future seasons, as well as gaining new friends as well.

On the personal side, I do regret trying to schedule and manage a team as my first (UGC and) ESEA team. If I had to redo it, I would wait till I knew more about the process and league before trying to organize it myself.
On the other hand however, as stressful (and painful) as it was, I will take organization skills from this as well as a learning experience on what to expect in later seasons. On the subject of actual scrims / matches: I have improved significantly as a demo due to my mentor (and others who have other pieces every so often). I also have learned to main call for my team, and what I need to say in order for my team to understand and execute a push as well as holding (still working on it kinda). Lastly I want to say that I'm super happy that I've been able to play this season and as such I want to thank everyone that's been an influence this season:

Shoutout to my teammates:
Paladin
Radio
Plinko
Dishsoap
Emu
Groden (now sub)

and of course a shutout to my mentor: Inco,
As well as everyone else that has helped out along the way: Jojo, Negasora, Squidamatron, and Zoma.

Scrims have been good experiences and in general we rarely tilt, and have been learning a lot just by talking before/after scrims and sometimes watching demos together. Everyone loves each other no homo so the mumble atmosphere is generally good. First highlight is taking 2 rounds off That's So Randal which was the most fun I've had all season. I've improved more in the past several weeks than I have in a year which is cool. Thanks to drshdwpuppet, twitchy, and aim for mentoring and Runaway for paying my fees

Pocket for Sherlock Homies here

https://play.esea.net/teams/77250

It's been the most roller coaster season I've ever had so far. We've gone through a lot of scouts, roamers, and demos due to a mix of real life coming up, computer issues, etc. However, we've actually finalized our roster finally and are starting to actually play like a legit team. We're getting more and more confident in each other and when we play like we should, we have fun and do great. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and I think the rest of the team is as well. It's been an experience coming from being a Highlander main and only playing UGC 6s but I'll definitely be back for more after this season. Shoutout to Blinx and Saturn for being legit gods and carrying me.

This season has been pretty great so far! I spent the full month before the season started to try make a strong team with people from my silver team last season and people from the forums, and it really has payed off. So far we've rarely had any issues with players not being able to play and have basically no chance of becoming dead mid-season, which seems to happen to new teams often. If anything, the whole team has become very close friends and we're already looking forward to next season.

Match wise we got rolled first week and we looked like yet another new low open team, but we used viaduct week to show that we're definitely at least in mid-open, and have kept our heads high since. Some of us are pretty convinced that with our current schedule, if we can improve a ton soon and get really, REALLY lucky, we *might* be able to grab the last spot on playoffs, which would be pretty hilarious if we did. It's probably wishful thinking but encouragement is encouragement.

Being TC has also been a great experience for me. It sucks that nothing I do in TF2 can't really be put on any sort of resume or other application, but how much self-improvement I've had from running things has been absolutely invaluable. It's also good that my usual tilting as the main-calling pocket has gotten better since my team called me out on it :>

I'll end by saying that overall I'm damn proud of how my team has been and even though I'm not well known at all in this community I'm damn proud to be a part of it! Good luck to all the other teams doing their best to improve and all the other Team Captains for keeping their teams together!

Admittedly I'm not in ESEA-Open, but I'm in ETF2L Open so it's close enough. Joined the team a week before the season began, we scrim at least twice a week and we win most of them without a problem. I think my highlight of the season would probably be being 2nd in Open (and hopefully we can stay there!). So far we've kicked our demo, kicked our leader (who was on scout), our roamer's swapped to scout, our demo to roamer, and a new demo joined (advantages of a league with fees I suppose). Kicked the leader because he couldn't take criticism which just turned comms into a toxicity fest. The current roster all like each other etc, so team chemistry is growing (not quite perfect yet, we still have the odd run-in-and-die-for-no-reason). Thanks for asking, sorry if you didn't want an EU perspective.

Our season has been pretty fun, but I wish we had fewer ffws
The rest of our schedule looks challenging, and we've had a lot of fun games so far
That fat 5-1 against yipyapper's team was a lot closer than a 5-1 probably implies, definitely the highlight of the season so far
I think i feed and bait a lot but i've been working on it
Our team sorta has communication issues and we don't really coordinate a lot but we're workin on it
I love everyone on my team, they're the best :D
Shout outs to froot, trip, doll, kev, and marque for helpin us through this season by ringing
(especially marque)

Our season has been pretty fun, but I wish we had fewer ffws
The rest of our schedule looks challenging, and we've had a lot of fun games so far

alderThat fat 5-1 against yipyapper's team was a lot closer than a 5-1 probably implies, definitely the highlight of the season so far

Even though I play demo and nothing about the class is a highlight of fun (haha help), it was definitely the best match and a good time. Wish we could scrim at all, don't think we've ever scrimmed you guys

On a related note, I really hope that most if not all of the new open teams have players/leaders/etc similar to guys like ShdSteel. If that's true, even if this sounds like the dumbest hugbox thing ever, then I think the future of esea especially if comp mm makes it get bigger (I have my doubts but I'm hopeful) is in fantastic hands. If the teams and players that get better and become the face of the league have less memes and are better people then everything would be a lot more fun and more people would likely want to join in.

I mean that was probably the most hugbox thing I've ever said, but honestly what's so bad about that? Having a nice league would be pretty awesome

EDIT: I also hope that the massive flux of HL players taking a big interest in 6s will develop into something cool once they get their feet wet and such.

Scout for Hurricane Watch

All 6 players are new to open. We got lucky on scheduling. I wish there weren't so many dead teams, would prefer to actually play than get FFWs.

Got a mentor after viaduct week, pocket is putting in a lot of work on strats, my internet hasn't fucked up in weeks, everything is looking up.

i sub scout for my team and the first match i played it was a 6v5 that we rolled and i got like 150dpm because i didn't really do anything since we just sort of capped points and won

last night i had to sub med and i don't play med, it was sort of dumb and we got to mid super late bc i was bad at getting people buffed. i switched with our roamer and i was still late to mid bc i didn't know how to roamer rollout and i had awful frames. lost 1-5 because i'm really bad, i should have commed more and called out what i was doing and where people were. only played 2 matches as a sub so at least i only played like a retard for 2 matches instead of more

my b (6-2) medic https://play.esea.net/teams/122943

had some really depressing losses at first (3 rounds against NAB then they score 4 str8 rounds on viaduct lol), bunch of roster changes, un-dependable subs who still kinda haunt us. on the otherside there have been hilarious matches and scrims that have had me dying laughing, feel a real bond with teammates, and thats always nice. we picked up viper who has monster DM and is a constant good time to be around. we have our own dumb little inside jokes like every other team, and laughing and having a good time is the best way weve grown close as bros. being the oldest on the team (until viper joined) is kinda tough, personally not really into the zealous and often shit talking attitude that the younger teammates have but we manage to get along alright, like im 21 dude but apparently 3-4 years is a big difference lmao. scrims are a lot of fun, challenging and we learn so much shit scrimming teams we havent before, not much else to say there. overall i think there have been insane massive improvements since the season started, our scouts especially have really impressed all around. ive learned alot from these guys and we continue to help and learn things from each other and its a pretty valuable experience all in all. shoutout to all the teams that scrim us last minute at 11 eastern, godbless on that, and The Baddies for being cool about literally everything.
