I originally wasn’t that bothered to write a post here, but after I saw Mia’s comment absolutely EXPOSING my Polish medic for the villain he is I have to say my blood started to boil.
Firstly, I’d like to point out that the main people contributing arguments to this thread are those players in div 1 who presumably believe they’ll have smoother sailing in the absence of my team. Yes, there are some players on our team who have played prem, but let’s be real here:
• Me, who hasn’t played etf2l or much tf2 at all for near 2 years now.
• Chris, in the same position.
• Graba, who played prem four years ago with LUPUS? I mean do I really need to explain this one
• Utka, I don’t know honestly, still haven’t heard that guy talk in mumble
• Deli who played maybe 2 seasons of prem recently, but said himself he feels like he’d be better to play a season in div 1 to improve.
• Silves, has not played prem.
So there’s the facts on the players. Of course I don’t disagree that there is obviously an argument that yes, we could play prem, possibly winning a couple of matches. This has been pointed out by a couple of select individuals who seem hellbent on scanning logs.tf all day every day. Seeing as everyone loves logs so much, let’s have a look at a couple.
Vs Domo’s team
Vs The Compound (a div 1 team might I add, that has not even been mentioned in this thread)
Vs Boinicle, who sent their medic to attempt to expose us in this thread
Obviously it would be stupid to only talk about logs supporting our argument, so here are a select few where we do not so bad. I’m not gonna go through and find every single one, as I’m sure plenty of people are keen enough to do that anyway
What is my point here? I used to hear all the time that scrims are just scrims.
As you can see, we have a range of results vs both div 1 and premiership teams. In fact, the only premiership teams we have beaten in scrims are the French team and Virtus bro. But since when is it that ridiculous for a div 1 team to beat a prem team in a couple of scrims?
Recently we have still had perfectly close games vs div 1 teams. I’ll repeat once more that it just does seem like some of the players in those teams just can’t be bothered playing us in the main season, all because of a couple of games in which we have beaten them.
To be succinct, we didn’t sign up for prem because we didn’t want to. The delay to the season has certainly thrown a spanner in the works but overall I see it like this: play div 1 and continue to have close games vs the other top div 1 teams, or sign up for prem, win vs maybe one or two teams and come bottom table. At the end of the day we had a choice when signing up between these two options. I for one could not be bothered with the second one
Tl;dr we’re really not that good, please stop crying
