Rate Your Captain Duo

Tue Nov 21, 2017 5:11 pm

Just to get a summary of how every captain duo did this season from team perspective. Somebody from every team that isn't a captain should write one up and send it to me and I'll put them all together!

As a player on this team this is really accurate.

My only criticism is that every keeps calling us Underrated when it is clearly Ken no Senshi.

Duoing with Tariq was by far the best move I ever made in my Grif career. If literally anyone besides ace asked me to duo with them instead of Tariq I would probably turn them down. I hate him because I legit do all the captain work but on court he’s the fuckin man.

GT: Ming Crusader
Team: One Hit Wonders
Captain/Duo: Shad/Tariq

This was my second time not being a captain. Technically third, shadow was captain of WiA once, but I still did everything that season. The only other time I wasn't captain was in the NGA when I played for Four to Oh's team. That ended with me going behind his back and trying to schedule the championship game without him, him finding out, and me getting benched. Point being I'm not good at being "just" a player.

That said, this season was a blast. I'd be happy to play for Shad again. From an organizational standpoint he did great, we have the most games played in pro at the moment with absolutely no reschedules to play. He did a decent job of accommodating my request to play earlier in the night, which is impressive since he's on pacific time and stupid AGLA did away with 8 pm games. So no complaints there.

Now on court stuff. He's communicates well, which was probably my weakness as a captain. I stay pretty quiet during games. My past teams were 4G1B who communicated telepathically, and WiA/old OHW where shadow s16 did all the in game talking. So I liked having him and DCleak giving directions during games. The only negative I have for him is that he's a bit hard on himself. He'll take blame for giving up goals that weren't even his fault. I don't know if he truly considers himself a top player. That's why I want to win this season, so he will realize that he is. All that aside, even when he does get down or mess up, he doesn't tilt. And that's the important part. Even after messing up he bounces back pretty quick. I think that shows in some of the comebacks we've had this season, and the ones he had in IGL (hi zim).

Tariq was probably the oldest vet that I knew nothing about. I could count on one hand the number of times I interacted with him before this season. But I learned that he's a super nice guy, and a very selfless player. Shad did all the official captaining duties so I don't know how he would fair as a solo captain, but I'd still be happy to play with him again. Sometimes he needs to tell denny to stfu though. And to be completely honest I still don't know that much about him. That's just the way he is.

Mine was shit, I had this trash washed up loser with a massive ego simply because he trashed Ammy, he's got no offense and his career is crashing faster than Notorious with a 4-0 lead and he doesn't even realize it.

The other was a beast of a defender and a top tier player who is still getting disrespekted, Drk is really good.
