There's pretty much always been crossover between NA and EU. I remember doing EU tournaments before and nobody seemed to care (except Sleek). I don't know why the barrier was suddenly necessary.

If you want to argue about HoI4 games, take it to Other Games or the Mess Hall. Unless you have something serious to post that on topic, take it somewhere else.

1erPLG fame largely comes from them dumpstering double rank bots in PA linebattles

Bold statement. There was a good full year where near every top cav player was either a permapub or a PLG. I still think the single best cav roster in NW was the PLG right after they hoovered up a bunch of Marins (in the brief period before they all quit playing).

PA were better than people give them credit for. Took them years (and the appearance of training wheels targets, the 63e cav) to learn how to stab a horse, but they weren't bots.

Here they are beating up the Royal Army in an old fashion brigade battle, complete with Fireboy-Pastaman bickering:

.

Id say it was closer to 25% for any ex-plg, also I really don't think anyone left to join us after Silly took up more responsibilities besides maybe Griff and that wasn't because of Silly.

IMHO this is what the timeframe should look like: Pre-2014 PLG, 2014 1LH < PLG,  2015 1LH = PLG, 2016 1LH > PLG, 2017 1LH > PLG, 2018 1LH > PLG.
with the later years further cemented by our run of tournament victories, I also wouldn't attribute our success to the PLG whatsoever and i think its irresponsible to insinuate otherwise

I don't know how all the numbers worked, but Bear, Blackfysh, Kozak, Lars, Will and Asston were all from the PLG and had become 1LH by early 2016. I remember a bunch of them switching all at once, but it's been long enough that I don't remember who left when. By the time Blucher's tournament happened (the one I have some of the logs for), Griffith, TJ, Kyler (who still owes me a $15 Steam game) and Public had all swapped from the PLG. Some of those players helped more than others, and were active at different times (I only remember three of playing nearly every event for a significant length of time). I don't think the LH needed any of them to be a great cav regiment, but I doubt it would have dominant top-to-bottom like it was if they hadn't left.
