Heh i'm not the only one writing my own review here. Anyways, i'm not popular with smurfing players, a fact of which I am quite proud of
Also I've admitted many times on this forum about being "carpetbomb", no mystery there, it was fun to write my review. I do consistently beat the tier 2 players posted up. But as usual i'll get put in tier 3 and get picked later in the matchup on 5v5 I've always been the "discount" player when getting picked, doesn't change anything .
I've toppled a few tier 1's, higgy and quar come to mind. I beat higgy in a memorable matchup where neither of us had feed until the very end, i was advent and he vasari. he beat me the second time with a well hidden skirmisher build up. The point is that I am a threat to tier 1's and therefore cannot be taken lightly, I figure that is part of the criteria for being a tier 2 or tier 1.
That is why I put tier 1.5, as it is in between the two, an all around fair assessment.
but then these go off of 1v1's, and there are many players that are good at 1v1 yet not so good at the teamwork required in 5v5. I am almost exclusively a 5v5 player, and I have never put any stock or worth in 1v1's, as they are just time wasters for the real 5v5's to happen.
