It's difficult to be a teammate that only looks at each game as a way to improve themselves or to improve your team strategy. It took me a long time as a player to get better at this as I used to rage at my teammates for playing badly when a game was their fault. Statements made that let somebody know the game was their fault, even if indirect, do nothing but hurt your team.
"idk why you trinketed that fear"
"you die without blocking every time dude"
"I played with so and so and they did this" (I used to do this so much.)
These comments never help, so if you want to become a part of a long-lasting team you will learn to say more helpful things to your teammates.

If your teammate is too full of themselves to think they had no fault in the game, then it's time to find somebody else to play with or try to set them straight. The game should never be lost with "I don't know I feel like I played that perfect on my end. I mean I did the most damage, most CC, etc." Sure even if you think you played perfect there's no reason to mention this to dishearten your team.

I was in a situation with Novoz a long time ago where we felt forced to replace Drmayonaise in Season 8 before regionals. He was getting mad every single game we lost to RLS which was a near impossible matchup for us that lasted several minutes. He's changed a lot as a person since that time thankfully and I still play with him from time to time. I'm sure Dannycarey knows his druid isn't the best just like anyone knows that their alt isn't the greatest. It's not like I log onto Starbadar and convince myself that I'm the world's greatest mage. This whole situation with Dannycarey's replacement makes it seem like they don't care about him at all. I know for a fact that he is one of the best healer monks in the game and it's not like he rages at his teammates or doesn't talk about what's going on. I know Sharpstorm is a great Monk too and probably an equal replacement, but ditching your Blizzcon healer from last year at moments notice is simply not cool.

I would appreciate if you didn't make long wided posts directed at my team without knowing anything about the situation. Dannycareys original post is bias, diliberatly leaves out facts and the entire backstory in an attempt to gain sympathy from the readers. Although your post may give good advice for some, it doesn't apply to this situation at all. Anyone who plays with me knows I look at my own mistakes prior to anyone elses. After playing a year and a half with him this was not an easy decision that we made on the spot. The decision had nothing to do with his skill or ability to play his alts, and that's all the detail I'm going to go into. We're keeping this drama out of the spotlight for his own sake and aparently he doesn't realize that.

We're not going to go into details on why we did this, for dannycareys sake.

I certainly did not say that.

For the 9th/10th placement matches no special treatment was given. Look at the brackets: http://www.nationale...cider/rankings/

Blizzard clearly stated they were doing placement for the 9th-12th spots.

If Supatease beat 3 amigos or fury turbo dream beat us they would be fighting for the regionals spot, not us. Yes the tournament was unfair for a number of reasons but if either team had lost one round sooner we would not be in a position to go.
