That's great for you guys. Don't see what one thing has to do with the other.
Well your accusing us of not playing enough games, when we have a bunch of games on the go at the moment, plus plans for a war with one of CC's top clans getting prepared in the next month.
Right on, I'll be very interested to see how you guys do.
The real question is, did superrag and mikiesdios finally break down and get premium on their own, or did you guys take up a collection? Figure a couple of bucks per bandit is a small price to pay for taking the freemium fetters off one of the best dubs teams on the site.
The premium upgrade was a planned move by those of us who decide these things. We admit freely that we waited until all the maps were posted so that the IA would be blindsided by the move. This is, after all, a game of strategy and making the best of what one has available. Rag and Miki have stayed true to the Bandits although we are fully aware they have been approached by other clans wanting their talents so a little quid pro quo was in order, 2 of us made gifts of the premium to them at what we considered the most opportune moment. A 'couple of bucks per Bandit' as you put it, would not really be a manageable situation would it.
It is well to note that they had not had the best of seasons up to this point (in comparison to their normal win rate, which was another factor in our planning), so we reckoned an adjustment was on the cards.
We got to the semi finals due to the combined efforts of all the Bandits. We have some very good talent; each 'team' picked the maps throughout the season to match those talents. We are a small clan in terms of active participants so feel pleased we have made progress thus far.
Whether we win or lose the finals is not really that important. As always with our clan what is important is that no one gets anally retentive about the whole affair and we enjoy the, sometimes fierce, banter that our forum is full of. Conversely, often during the season a challenge thread would struggle to get to the second page on a thread such is the relaxed Bandit attitude.
