Congrats!  I only saw a few suspect stat entries in a 2 min search (like this http://pantheon.demigodthegame.com/game/717662/player/14328/).  Looks like you are the real deal, sir!  Well done.  All other stats appear spot on.

I'm not impressed. Never has he made a game that specified "Teams" or "Premades" only. Seems to always play with his Premade team vs Pugs. You would think that within 100 games he would have or tried to setup a Teams / Premades only game. Not hard to smash pugs all day with a Team.

There is nothing wrong with playing with your premade and smashing pugs, but at least try to schedule in some team games.

I am impressed with the lack of crashes, considering that since the last patch I have been starting to crash damn near every game.

It is better to put a requested player skill level in the title than saying premades or teams only. As that will normally lead to some average teams, few really good teams, and mostly below average teams.

If all randoms know how to play the game and are well experienced then they will know how to communicate and will function just as well if not better than most premades.

They are most certainly the real deal. Though we should of joined one of your last games we saw up to break that record

Putting "No Noobs" or "Pro" in the game never seems to stop bad/below average players from joining anyways so I don't see what difference it would make. At least a team will work together.

You should check your facts before criticizing:

http://pantheon.demigodthegame.com/game/709360/player/14328/

 

The fact of the matter is there are not enough premades out there to challenge us very often. When they want a game, we play. Sometimes when we join other premade games, we get kicked.

Another thing you can't tell from the stats: RapierX never hosts.

 

P.S. If it weren't for that one crashed game I would be at 150 right now . Stardock really really really needs to get team automatch working soon.

Yeah... going to have to disagree with you there. Titles like "Good" Players, "Experienced" players is totally subjective. A guy can be experienced, because he's played 70 games... but he blows because he has lost 70% or more of them. Some people tend to think they are good when they are clearly not. Often times people don't even look at the game names, and in a "Pro's Only" game you'll have guy's who have played less then 10 games join up.

Obviously when you specify teams only or premades only, you are going to get guys who suck as well, but at least you attempted to get matched up against another premade team.

Yeah he counts his lucky stars every night that game split didn't break his streak.

Pretty much confirming how stats are completely broken.

No, then no one but the host would have favour points listed.

Agreed.  Better than not saying anything though... Getting 100 wins is impressive.  Put any one of us on a great premade team, even playing against pugs, and I'd doubt we'd get to 100 wins... crashes alone would mitigate against that.

So what you're saying is he must have crashed or something?

It really doesn't matter what you put as the title. You will always have a chance of getting players not equal to your skill level. That goes for both "team" and "good players"/"pro players" titles. But "team" games almost never fill up and you'll spend an hour waiting in the lobby.

Too bad about that crash. A 200 win streak would be at least twice as awesome as a 100 win streak! hehe

congratulations RapierX, even if he played 100 games as a premade, well done man.

its a shame there is such a lack of conpetition in this game though it is quiet disappointing.

101 wins in custom games...mostly premades at that, who cares? Play skirmish/pantheon to get some credit.

Skirm/Panth is just like playing the lottery. Sometimes you get a decent team, but the odds aren't exactly great.

the only amazing thing about your record is you never got a loss from a crash or game error.

 

10 bucks says if he solo queued panth he would lose the streak within 5 games.

Rapier and shadow's team is really, really good. That is a pretty impressive, gigantic win streak too. I think part of it is for the funny factor though, as opposed to just show how awesome they are. Me and regabond beat them once in a custom. Admittedly, we had a freakin awesome random on our team lol. It was before the latest patch though, so I don't think the loss is there to tarnish their record.

Eventually the rest of the DI crew will stop fearing you shadow, and we'll be able to play some more premades vs you

We have actually been picking up new members at a pretty decent rate actually. All of em around me and regabond's level of skill...some higher, some lower
