NurseyI played with Jarrett for multiple seasons in Highlander, and I am his friend. I would stay up with this guy until 3 in the morning to hear him talking about HIGHLANDER. How he wanted to get better. Constantly doing demo reviews. He would always be practicing his DM on top of that. There was a period of time where I spent practically four seasons straight trying as hard as I could to play on an ESEA team with him. I could never imagine how great of a teammate he would be to have. His maincalling was magical, he's a playmaker, smart player, and an extremely nice guy. He literally solo raised the bar for me to what an amazing teammate could actually be like.
I don't know why you're throwing around the fact you played with jarrett for so long as if you know what the better decision would be,especially with 0 knowledge of what our team environment has been this season and last season. Me,skye and rekuso have all played with him for 2+years total,and all in 6's. Not to imply his maincalling is bad but you've only played with him on a team in highlander,and highlander maincalling is different from 6's so i don't know how you can judge what his calling is like in 6s in an actual non-pug invite team setting. This is all opinionated anyway,and while i felt like his calling was more in line with what people wanted at the end of the season,people disagreed and still wanted sigh.
NurseyThis is honestly super frustrating to read about. This guy was dedicated to your team for SEASONS on end and I know for a fact he would be willing to listen to any of your advice. You simply gave up on your teammate - who never gave up on you - and cut him off. I understand and apologize for the extra aggression which is due to Jarrett being my friend. But this is mega pussy shit.
I get hes your friend,but i didn't play 2 years with him and not become his friend,we didn't just week 5 decide "lets cut jarrett",we felt like anytime we said anything to him it was met with disagreement or just plain "your wrong" type responses and it created an impasse. Disagreements about how to play aren't bad but when its 5v1 in that regard,then yeah the 1 should probably relent for the sake of the team,and we felt that never really happened. Its always possible the 1 could be right but if it creates an environment where no ones having fun playing that way then the team just isn't a good fit for everyone together,and that's what happened.
Jarrett's my friend as well and this is gonna be my only response since replying anymore with specifics from other teammates sides of things is just gonna turn into badmouthing him unnecessarily,so i can appreciate defending your friend if you feel he got unfairly treated,but please understand my response in defending my friends for making this decision,regardless of what my stance was/is on cutting him,so please don't take it in an aggressive way either.
