We 7-3ed 1aSvea when y’all arguably may have had a better melee lineup than us and I think Godfreid was leading. We were also missing Russian so I had a angry french canadian in the back
Yeh Wardop was a bit rusty but its not hard for old leaders to start reverse columning in today's 1v1. When 1a 1v1 LG we lost 6-4 or 7-3 I think which isn't bad for his 1st time leading a 1v1 in like 6-7 years.
If you look at any 1v1s from like 2013, more then half the regs didn't know what a reverse was. As time goes regs don't get worse, they get better. I have had this argument with many people, and I have seen the best of both eras. If you get a new gen leader that is some-what league one material, they would absolutely crush regimental leaders who dropped off before 2015ish. Most of the high end old gen leaders would probably adjust to the era, but in terms of what is, and what was, the current era of leaders have adjusted from mistakes made in the earlier years. Tactics, and everything in general are just better. A good analogy for it would be in Baseball when people talk about Babe Ruth, while he was the best player of his era, and those years, he wouldn't be able to compete in this era, unless he took time to adjust to it. We saw something like this with Wardop when he reformed 1aSvea for the recent NANWL, he got dismantled in his first match, and the 1aSvea was disbanded half way into the season of NANWL, and even mid season he gave up his leading to more formidable leaders of the era.
wait this argument already happened git fukt 40th?
still old gen reg biased imo
new gen leaders are kinda bad ngl
Long time ago tho details are fuzzy y’all imploded like a week later
Russian and I made center/front/back reforms cool and drilled the shit out of them before using them
We most certainly did not have a better melee line up, even before the 1a collapsed after the first match against 6te, it was getting stomped by LG in groupfights lol (LG at that time was basically LG + 42nd so not surprising), was literally Rune and I trying to carry that melee against you, Yoshie, Cwater, Risk, Superbad, Pinoy, Fireboy, Theodin, BabyJ etc., most of our other top meleer's like Maple, Caribou and Grimsight weren't active, and everyone else was like Glenn level at best.
Grimsight and I also had 0 time to know or improve what we were working with regiment wise since we were tossed into leading roles like a few days before the match after 1a had a bit of an implosion following the 6te match. Kind of discovered that people didn't know how to not run beside the line and that reversing just caused horrendous blobs, couldn't do quick shooting etc. just wasn't a lot to work with at that time.
I think if we had more time to train the regiment and improve it, it would have been great, but we didn't.
But it eez what it eez
