Return of the Moop

I’ve been meaning to write this post for sometime now, and now is as good a time as any.  I start a new job on February 11th, which will put me back in the land of the living and also make me and active Jedi.  That right ladies and gentlemen I shall be returning to rock and roll with the boys.  I’m really excited and can’t wait to have stupid practices and win matches.  So look for me coming to a server and match near you.

Deion Branch busted an ACL vs. the Packers

This means he recently had surgery and began a 9 month recovery process. And as we all know an ACL never gets back to 100% even after 9 months of rehab. Javon Walker is probably the most comparable case, and he’s never been the same receiver. He did have one good season in Denver, but it wasn’t as consistent as before, and Deion Branch is already inconsistent in Seattle’s spread offense. This means for fantasy football enthusiasts you should keep DJ Hackett higher on your draft boards or consider holding him in keeper leagues. He’s Hasselbeck’s biggest target, Engram is going to be 35 next year, and S.A. and Mo Morris are not the answer at RB. Look also for Seattle to target a RB in the first 3 rounds of the draft. It would make sense to think Round 1, but that isn’t usually Holmgren’s style.

TFL: DJedi over The Pact 23-0

Slingshot is a Beast

Last night for TFL we met with The Pact for two, 30 minute rounds on cp_granary. For the 1st round we started out on Pact’s server and we started out with a pretty heavy lineup running no scouts. Pact beat us to the middle with 3 scouts and were attempting to capture the middle when we rolled in from all angles and proceeded to frag our way to oppressive dominance for the remainder of the match. This is most clearly shown in this screenshot from Slingshot[DJedi]>P in which he is dominating all 8 players on Pact at the same time.

The 2nd round we started out all scout in an attempt to complete Operation X16(tm), but once again, Retro ruined it. This time he was changing video settings when we ready’d up to begin the match and we didn’t realize it, but still, his fault. Scout rush proved to be extremely effective and we went high, low, left, right to throw Pact off and avoid their countering Pyro rushes. The 2nd half diminished from a serious match to an all out fun filled party with both clans throwing the strats to the wind and running around having a good time.

I’m very impressed with these guys, they took a pretty brutal beating, but stayed throughout the entire match, played with honor and never gave up. These chracteristics reminded me of the old days and, after a little research, possibly the most surprising thing was that The Pact is a Quakeworld Teamfortress clan. I don’t know how I don’t remember these guys, but I’m very glad to see some of the original TF players sticking around and coming back to play TF2. Look forward to facing off with you in future competitions.

Final Score: 11-0,12-0, DJedi over The Pact 23-0
