my skype discussion with the staff is coming down to this:
1) they say the comp will result in long, unwatchable games vs every comp it plays.
i say thats not true because it hasnt been true on live. i also say that we can test that with wargames before hand. also, there will be long games in the nao regardless of this comp, so theres no reason to make a double standard for it.
2) they say that my fps last tourny resulted in long unwatchable games, therefore so will this.
i say a feral can peel more than a ret can with infinite cc, and a feral is unkillable (longer games). i say that was only true for the fps vs rps matchup (2 spriests vs each other) - next time shadow is on both sides precautions should be taken because the game may be long (i even was telling the staff before the rps games that this was going to be bad). i may look back at the games, i think outside of the rps games, my fps games lasted maybe 4-6 mins on avg. i also disagree that all of the fps games were long and bad, because they werent.
3) i say that ret shadow x is new and exciting. no one wants to watch 1000 fotm comps play. the last nao made fps a hit. ppl are running fps everywhere now and asking me about it all the time. it was good for the nao, a new comp that debuted there and did well. this could happen again for ret shadow x.
they have no rebuttal for that.
4) they say that they will only accept us if they run out of other comps and players to accept.
i say that me waat and shakes are all very good players, nao experienced, successfull, the comp is fun viable and unique, list goes on, and therefore we should be among the first considered, not the last.
