Having been teammates with Grape Juice while he was playing two different classes in two different stages of his TF2 career, I can confidently say that he has grown a lot both as an individual and teammate over the years. Passionate about the game and how to improve, and would thrive in an environment where his teammates share the same sentiments. Can get a little agitated at times but it's from his drive for the game (not that he can't improve on how he responds to adversity). Will laugh at you as you struggle through Persona 4 for the first time. Good luck on your search Grape.

too obsessed with the prospect of playing invite rather than just improving himself to reach that level, and i dont think this "drive to improve" is any stronger than anybody else's. both explain the stagnation and complacency.

holds the negative quality of being predictable as a roamer and here is some specific critique describing this:

Show Content
metalworks holding 2nd even & disad, heavily overuses the ctap from bridge to walljump high bomb into deep alley, so consistent that eventually the strat just became that i high bomb then curve and/or bomb away flank to bait this jump and we get a 0 risk free soldier pick. this pattern of misunderstanding off-timings is apparent elsewhere, its just especially noticeable in this context.
gullywash pushing 2nd from last, overuses high bomb from upper into choke to sync. would be fine if it weren't for the fact that hes landing directly on ground in front of choke, even unbuffed at times after doing it. i remember telling my demo at one point to just stick ground since hed land there, think he insta died but even if not its still consistently enough damage that he may as well have, and theres no risk in shooting the ground.
process mids, every(<--) mid rolls out fast onto his crate. unimposing, unchanging, and abusable when a soldier fast rolls out directly onto him. when i roamed i forced the habit of fast rollout to mg, much more consistent than it may sound and would stop him from doing his default the following mid.
i remember villa mids being particularly repetitive but cant recollect. whatever, shit map gone now anyways.

i could go on, but i wont. i think ive made my point clear with what ive given that anything more just seems redundant, and those were tabs i dont value enough to keep to myself. ill let the rest remain in obscurity though.

wonderofli dont think this "drive to improve" is any stronger than anybody else's

true. i think this is a bad thing to post on people's lft posts in general.

wonderoflmetalworks holding 2nd even & disad

my force/drop rate is absolutely fucking disgusting with it and it is generally risk free considering I will spawn before the enemy team pushes into last. literally no reason not to do it in such a claustrophobic part of the map. obviously in a perfect world there is more coordination with my team to put pressure on the team that is pushing into us, but when this can't happen I simply compensate for it by changing my timing to be earlier or later (in my experience this will also lead to a drop or force), and again, I will spawn by the time the enemy team is pushing into last, so it is generally risk free all things considered.

wonderoflgullywash pushing 2nd from last

similar thing to metalworks. but you are right, my timing is generally bad when I do this play.

wonderofl*every* process mid

This is simply incorrect. My process mids are generally my most varied with what i choose to do, when I land on the crate i do so because your demo is too far away for me to land on him to kill him. I have done the fast rollout a lot, and I do so because cin told me it is the meta play at an invite level, putting pressure on the demo, killing him, or getting spam on choke if uncontested and the other 2 dont happen. with that in mind my flaw lies in standing my ground when you are flying in instead of counter jumping you. and no offense, it was simply disrespect that lead me to stand my ground, since i believed you or your team would let me get away with more. when i have rang/tried out against invite teams, I always counterjump in that situation.

TL;DR you have valid criticism but you misjudge the decision making that goes into how i play the game; and I honestly dont mean to say this to you in a "haha i wasnt trying hahah ur shit lol" kind of way

on metal ur doing it on evens way b4 any1 dies or is at risk of. its very bad since ur consistently creating the snowball that loses ur 2nd and theres a lack of recognition on ur part in disads when teams are evidently just playing around ur decisions. its also impossible for ur team to help u since ur doing a gimmicky (not by itself bad) variation of it which plays a major part in its success since ur actually ctapping it to land on top of the ramp leading into alley which ppl dont typically attribute it as dangerous. its ur default though, the more u do it, the more ppl get used to it, the worse it gets, until it reaches this point of feeding. ive never felt the difference in timing, add more variance to it. or just do something better.

"my timing is generally bad when I do this play."
thats a positioning thing, not timing.

"This is simply incorrect."
i can load demo
"simply disrespect"
highly doubtful
"misjudge the decision making"
im not judging it @ all.

i misread 2 of your headers so:
yeah when i pre-emptively countersac on metal its cringe but ur team is the only team that learned how to adapt. practice how you play. I do actually have backup jumps in mind either for changeups or if im not in position for my default.
when i land on the ground on gullywash choke and die, I kick myself. I haven't done it often in recent memory.

I know what mids I go for on process. I actually streamed a demo review for a lower level player this summer and I gave them like 4 different things they could do and I know for a fact that I go for all 4 on a regular basis. guess you didnt see that stream.

i used to think u and your team were bad, and to be fair, in season 5 you guys were. in season 6 i was playing with the bros and going for shotguns, and while you guys were on the rise, I still didnt pay it much mind. now this season you were one of the best teams in the division, and I have gained a new respect for you and your team, but when I have played against you guys in the past (including early in this season and preseason), yes, i played disrespectfully at times.

I did not mean "misjudge" to be taken negatively. I meant it as a synonym for "misunderstand" (pretty ironic when you consider I misread parts of your original post)

that all being said im not sure anything more will come out of this conversation, so i wont reply any further. you get to have the last laugh if you want it.

can def say grape is a solid roamer, can be at times a bit repetitive and predictable (and tried to use the spoon too much when he was trying out for the virgil/yosh preseason team i was on) but I distinctly remember scrimming him and getting forced by weird off timing bombs and dropping to him sneaking behind from lower lobby on gully and jumping behind to river, def has some creative stuff up his sleeves

and controversial take but a lot of ppl in this game are not actually driven to improve and just pug and ~chill~ with their homies all day and will definitely not be seen watching demos lol, but as a more substantive comment darwin has a pretty open mind about stuff and isn't locked into a single playstyle from his ego or anything

from the invite tryouts I had with him in the preseason of s6, he always came to scrims with a good attitude no matter how hard we were about to get/got rolled. he had some iffy moments, but overall I would say he's capable of pulling his own weight in invite. he, as others have mentioned, is really open to criticism. always seemed to be asking what he could do better or if the play he made was wrong. i think based solely off his motivation to improve, he has a good shot of doing well later down the line in invite.
