There isn't anything compelling about this match to me as of yet. Nobody with an opinion that matters thinks U8 will win.
It's the same story line as before. I'm inactive/inconsistent, and then someone gets good, or a former good player gets unrusty and then a few people start to wonder if that person can beat me. U8 is just the next Scrubbo/Poscow. I got called out by them, and I unrusted to play them and they both lost decisively - and they were both significantly better than U8. Also, U8 seems to be very humble/friendly so that also leaves no ego to be broken. Perhaps you should talk some shit. Do you think you would beat me in a GOW series? KOTH series? Both?
Not sure about Poscow, but as far as Scrubbo , HE WAS THE ONE unrusting and getting good really quick and took a nice chunk of wins against you while you were in your peak in 08. You were still better overall but I don't see how you can compare the situation to you vs. U8 now unless it's the other way around saying you are like Scrubbo having to get better.
Incorrect. Scrubbo played over 3,000 games in about 9 months prior to some of our series, and had been on the server prior to that. His appearance on .ru didn't last but maybe a couple years at most, but I don't think there's a player who played that many games in that short amount of a time - perhaps maybe spb or braviet at one point? idk. Anyway, Scrubbo got to a good level on .ru, especially at 2vs2 and was beating just about everyone. He was the only old school bne top player besides shotgun who got good again on .ru and did really well (and maybe nerzy too for a very short period of time.
You also aren't capable of recognizing if he was off or not, as you don't understand the game at the highest level, as consistently evident by your youtube commentary on replays. That's not intended to be mean, it's just a reality.
