Lone is phenomenal. I remember struggling vs him when he was less than a year into the game.

Lone should just play U8 - if he can find a way to beat that guy relatively consistently then that answers a lot of the questions. Beating anyone else doesn’t mean anything because everyone else is either way worse than U8 or just not nearly as good as they used to be - every other top player peaked 5 to 10+ years ago. SG is still very good relative to the player base, but hes not a third of the player that he used to be - so Lone struggling vs him is very telling. Could just be a stylistic match up tho.

I really think Lone has pretty much just as much or more potential than any player ever, and he wants to test himself - but he won’t outright challenge the only player that is worth beating in the last few years (U8).

Lone vs U8 on Gow TE first to 10 victories wins. I bet if there was a small prize pool they would both play serious.

I can stick around for about 2 more weeks if U8 likes Swift's proposal. I think Gow TE would be interesting for a change.

We can play other maps, but I'll play for fun and learning a bit, as I am not comfortable with most maps. I am okay on forest trails and hsc but on the rest I am either bad or/and I just don't enjoy it.

If you don't like TE, we can do the challenge on classic instead. The first to get 10 wins goal will likely eliminate the luck factor. Although I'd try TE cause I never played on it. Maybe not even a single time.

Because it has less options therefore it is less interesting in the long run. Moreover, it is a lot less fun in team games. Lastly, some people like to get in cheap wins, and everyone likes to win from a disadvantage on classic gow.

There is a huge amount of overlap between people who don't like TE and don't like any map besides gow, and this probably applies to 50% or more players that do play GOW.

Not saying that you are necessarily being dishonest or incorrect about your own motivations personally, but at least for the vast majority of people, it clearly has nothing to do with TE having "less options" or being "less interesting". If that was what they truley cared about, you'd see a lot more people playing other classic maps with far greater regularity.
