but its quite usual for a regulus to get these awards
he said its usual. Not - UN-usual. Eg - its normal for a decent reg to get these awards. If your team won with a reg and the reg didn't get the awards, that would mean the reg (who should get most of the kills), didn't put the most money into the citadel... which usually means the reg didn't do his job. If its a 3v3 and I have a reg on my team, I am literally counting on that teammate to finish off kills. If you have a good team with a reg vs a weaker team, it doesn't matter. But if you have a reg that isn't finishing kills and so so team, you will lose against an ok to decent team.
Here's a game I just played tonight: http://pantheon.demigodthegame.com/game/1307279/player/28414/ I have a good/great reg. We played an all random matchup. Teams were...
Zero-Recon was a weak sedna on our team - it was random and he got what he got (so no offense zero).... but we are talking yetti sedna on a non minion build bad (with horn of battle no less). Trouser has at the very least a good oculus. Pete is his usual solid minion erb. Nom is not used to reg. And ferman had a reasonably competent sedna. Anyway, the bottom line is that trouser and I HAD to carry zero or it would be a loss for sure with him feeding.
So, I did my part as reg and stayed on top of kills as best I could. My job was to top off kills and even to protect sedna. But I bought the appropriate upgrades and kept a snipe ready whenever i could. Anyhow, here's a replay of that game. If I was not on top of my shite as reg, it would have been a loss even with nom not knowing all of the nuances of reg. Oh, and sedna bought currency 1 right when it was available, so its not like zero was horrible... just clearly hasn't played much sedna.
