    I'm an IA vet, and I've played ever since the game was first released in open beta with only Raider and the two maps. I've witnessed every map and class release to this day. As for Mirage, I even had 180+ routes for the tunnels back in the day. Know your facts, Jordan. :cool:

    The reason we didn't even come close to winning was our lack of teamwork and coordination, the map only played a small part in the loss.

    Maybe you need help yourself, Of course the tournament is done. I just talked about post tournament games (By post, i mean AFTER), and that's what these are, to provide more games anyways because FAP and DR haven't played each other and neither has GOAT and Xcution.

    I played on the first ever PuG of Mirage, back with people like Zarious and a man a few would remember as TheRizzle. APC and Blitz Shoutcasted that map. damn good times. (EPEEN AHOY!)

    you were just speaking of adding a losers bracket, but you obviously dont even understand what you want or how it works.
    this is an example of a losers bracket, you could just use chaolloenge (or w.e format maker enryuu used to help yourself out)

    I only remember them as they were on my team... and Rizzles mic sounded like his name it was so bad. (rizzzzzizzizziziziriririzirri... "what was that rizzle?")

    You misunderstand. The tourny is over even the losers bracket has been played. what the new posted matches are for is just shits and giggles. With only having 4 teams not everyone was able to play each other.
    So now everone will have played each other.

  11. The terms are a little confusing. Muk is right by the classic definition. The games played were consolation matches, not losers bracket games. It would have to be a double-elimination tournament for it to have a losers bracket.

    The way this tournament works, all the teams get paired. The losers then get paired and the winners get paired, so on. The winners and losers don't ever play games DURING the tournament. So whatever term you want to call it, go ahead. I explained how this was going to go down in the first post, even provided an example. Don't need to get into an argument, tournament's over and the teams are playing now for fun. Good luck with your games, and hopefully, we'll see you in the next month tournament!

    Never had the privilege of playing those early PuGs, but I believe you when you say "those were the days". Legions is in-fact my first online FPS game, and when I first started it, I was also new to the internet. There are just too many days that I thought to myself that I've been spoiled by it.

    It was better back then, people werent as good at dueling, but they made it up in their ability to play a position like no ones business. Darklord for example was a *dancing* nuts chaser (spotting, BBs, Awareness, general knowledge of the game) and his dueling was great, but people like muk today could rip him in half. It was the little things you couldnt measure directly that made it more fun. awareness, clutch players, peoples ability to create with so little (Kryst was known for challenging people in pick ups with various strats, like Burst LO, no LO, just cappers timing routes, a capper escort position played on defense. all sorts of stuff)

    Its the biggest thing I miss with the game. Too many people duel, or do just chase/cap, that legit tactics for LO and LD and others (remember sweeper anyone?) are not as prominant(spelling?). hell with the EMP nade HoFing is almost useless now, so my main position has been gimped quite hard. The game lost its fun tactics and strategy feel when it died under IAs control. Dont get me wrong, the game has changed A LOT since it was brought back, but I still had a lot of fun in those early days.

    People are evolving slowly, though, but mostly in the dueling aspect as conty said. I literally do not see any good LO/ Capper coordination anymore besides the obvious. I know the people who still play this game do so a good amount. You should challenge yourself to get much better so the next the we play our games it will be much more fun. You don't have to be amazing individually (although that does help). Communication and coordination are the two aspects of Legions that will make a team great.

    Heres my thing.
    We need more action in pub servers which will lead to more interest in PUGs. We only get a few "Vet Pros" that will play pubs, alot of people learn from the better players but if the "Better" players don't pub then the new players don't learn.
    As a community we have to realize new players won't download the game and just shoot to a pug, they learn in the public servers and with no one to teach them they will stay *chocolate cookies* for a long time.
