Double Banner Theory

Ubers have just been exchanged. The BLU team is getting ready to dry push through top left onto Snakewater last. Most teams at this point would fear eating a ton of spam from the enemy demos and soldiers, but not this one. Their soldiers, in unison, begin to blow their horns, signaling the start of something amazing. "CHAAAAAAAAAAAARGE" yells both soldiers as their flags raise. The pocket soldier is on the battalion's backup, while the roamer has the buff banner equipped. The spam merely tickles the BLU team, while their returning projectiles have lost all their damage falloff and are now causing immense pain to RED. The BLU team emerges the push victorious. "That's nuts" Mousecake says in astonishment.

That was a last push made only possible through the use of two banners. The buff banner and battalion's backup. Alone, these banners are already strong, but together, they allow a team to take very little damage while returning a large amount from a distance. Our leader, KutchKutch, has made ludicrous statements such as "it takes too long to build" or "we won't get any space" but these are simply false. This double banner strategy is viable in a last push because it gives your team an advantage in an even push, there is plenty of time to build the banners, and the synergy between banners is powerful.

To start off, the double banner is viable because of the advantages they give your team. Each banner provides their own unique buffs. The Buff Banner giving mini-crits, the Battalion’s Backup providing resistances to damage, and the Concheror allowing you and your to heal based off damage dealt to enemies. These are very powerful assets to have because when you have a banner up, in most cases the other team will not. Playing your cards right with a banner could allow your team to convert points, even rounds, in your favor. Undoubtedly, the best banner you could use is the Battalion's Backup, as the 35% resistance to ALL damage types makes pushing through a choke a breeze. Now what if, while taking less damage, you were also dealing a lot more to the enemy team?

Secondly, double banner is a viable tactic to use because there is plenty of time to build the banners when trying to push last. Anyone with more than five minutes of experience in 5-cp knows that whenever a point is captured the round timer is set to ten minutes. If that time runs out, it is a stalemate and both teams play the mid fight once again. This almost never happens because ten minutes is plenty of time for either side to capture a control point. Ample time is given to the pushing team to build their banners up, as both Battalion's Backup and Buff Banner need only 600 damage to be ready for use. Once you have your banners, you work an even uber exchange to use your banners while both teams are down their ubers. I would definitely say a few minutes of stalemating is worth it if it means winning the round.

Finally, the double banner strategy is viable in last pushes because of the strength banner synergy provides. One banner is enough to give your team a big enough advantage to push, but combining two banners on a push is absolutely game-breaking. For example, using both Battalion’s Backup and Buff Banner allows your team to do great damage from a distance, while making any spam damage you take meaningless. Another great combination is Battalion’s Backup and Concheror. Healing through the minimal damage you are taking will be cake with these two banners. Personally, I recommend always having a Battalion’s Backup in your banner combination, as it is the best banner in the game in my opinion. The damage reduction is too valuable to give up.

To conclude, two banners are viable in last pushes due to their synergy, the plentiful time available to build them, and because of the advantages they give your team. Double banner really has been slept on too much, and my team plans on displaying their strength in game, even if KutchKutch disagrees.

bryceI apologize for my insensitive post, I have destroyed that hope we can ignore my foolish, ignorant, unchained, brainless, dreadful mistake.

Thank you, and don't be afraid.

What Did Artist Mean When He Attempted Murder-Suicide in The Official v. HLPUGS?

Throughout the ages, from the stone age to today, man has always been passionate. Merriam-Webster defines “passion” as
“the sufferings of Christ between the night of the Last Supper and his death”
But that is not what I’m looking for. The next definition holds the answer:
“the emotions as distinguished from reason”

When a man loves a woman, that is passion. It is emotion separated from reason. How could he love a woman? Obviously not through reason. Passion.
When a man runs over someone who abused him in a mental way, is that passion? No, because it is extremely reasonable to run over someone who abused you.

What are you getting at, Bryce?
The deeper I fall – unwillingly – into this story the more emotional it becomes. What events transpired to Artist’s game-losing death? The invincibility, the flight, the 2,600 ELO strategy of missing all your pipes and stickies. These are all things you have to consider when you look into what went wrong.

My second example was no coincidence. Artist was acting upon a deep desire for revenge.
to avenge (oneself or another) usually by retaliating in kind or degree

But who could he have been avenging? The answer could only be three things.

1. PandaRaceCar37

[8:42 PM] khil: unicorn wizard tells everyone what to do literally

Why PRC? PRC left explicit instructions to artist before he *suddenly disappeared* to throw any match that would succeed in the team (Jagermeister) being sponsored by Jagermeister. PRC is not on vacation, as the team would have you believe. He was cut, selfishly, by Khil in a sacrifice to Mr. Del Dongo.

2. Cyber Bullying

Hahahahahahahaha How The Fuck Is Cyber Bullying Real Hahahaha Nigga Just Walk Away From The Screen Like Nigga Close Your Eyes Haha

Example 1
https://clips.twitch.tv/SincerePunchyKimchiWoofer

In this clip, Artist is repeatedly taunted by Gungeon. Gungeon knows Artist inside and out, and knows what to say and do to inflict the most emotional trauma upon Artist as possible.
This is only one example in a long line of cyber bullying that takes place in the Jagermeister Discord and Artist’s personal Discord.

3. The Emotional Stress of Hero-to-Zero

[12:09 AM] spirit: y’all so close to losing
[12:09 AM] spirit: always
[12:34 AM] khil: mad beef tonight
[1:00 AM] spirit: mad beef every night
[1:01 PM] bryce: truth....


Artism has gone through some extremely tragic scrims and officials over the past week, all of which could drive any healthy man (not Artist) to becoming unhealthy (Artist).

If you’ve been aware, you might notice all of Artist’s alts have names that you would be happy to be. Including, but not limited to,
“Buffguy,”
“Bobwise,”
And “DOOMBRINGER”

In my unprofessional opinion, this is Artist’s attempt at asking for help. He can not grow the balls to openly ask for help, so we, as a community, must save him from his impending collapse as a likely-but-not-confirmed-sentient being.

I hope we can all bring this to a peaceful ending.
Thank you,
Bryce

brycemessiahartistwe gave up at 3-0https://clips.twitch.tv/RespectfulBlindingDurianPlankingCoincidentally, that clip does not show Artism's perspective. Artist has a slighty different set of beliefs. For instance, he refers to God (the one true Lord) as Allah, in a sad case of mistaken identity. You should not make assumptions about a mans actions just because he failed to kill anyone in his bombing attempt. He is no less Holy to Allah (pbuh) than you or I. The attempt was not fruitful, but the fact he attempted anyways counts toward something.

This is proven by his cloak of invincibility. As you see, only Artism's team has the invincibility cloak. Once Artist knew he was done for, and was unsuccessful, Allah (pbuh) removed the cloak so he could go Home. Notice that the opposing team does NOT have the cloak of invincibility.
