Congrats on winning Scott! I remember when I was just getting into this game and met you guys at WWE, you were more then willing to offer advice and talk shop! Always a gentleman to watch play and talk... though I think we have only played once I think.
Really? Because I saw 16 very different teams out of the top teams at worlds
It's the same song and dance regardless how different the teams are. The tent pole will stall until it he/she gets to that point in the gauntlet to start winning the game. If you take away the gauntlet in tournaments, you'd rethink your team build.
Watch some of the matches. When both sides have the gauntlet, it's less likely to be all about stalling, because the other guy has just as much chance to hit the sweet spots as you.
Yeah, I'm sick of the gauntlet too, but it's part of the game now, complaining about it doesn't change a thing, and frankly the whining is getting more tiresome than playing against the gauntlet constantly, so why inflict it on everyone?
