Not I. RL was in it with the top teams in the league. It was the stronger of the 2 Brackets with the top 3 teams of the tournament. I don't like the way the seeds are done. At Dallas and at MAO the same thing. The best teams stacked into one bracket.

2 Overtime losses were just a couple paintball breaks from being playing for the Championship today.

I'll be in the pits for RL at Chicago and will be looking forward to the Chicago Challengers Champion, Russian Legion.

I didn't get to watch all of their games. But I thought everyone on that team played like crap. Except for Alexander, he has been their saving grace the last two seasons. Panteleev, and Kirill are the only other ones I think are really doing anything but I still feel they are playing under par.

They will win their way back into the Champions division at Chicago because the rest of those teams in the challengers are pretty bad. But their supporting guys need to play way better if they want to win a Champions division game. For a team who practiced for two weeks on the layout, I would hate to see how bad they would of looked without that.

They lost some of their best players, loosing rabackoff and federov who were two key players on their team. Rabackoff tore it up in snake for impact this weekend, imagine if he was still on Rl

Every Team had changes this year except Heat. Heat is having a below expectation year. They aren't the dominant team from 2012. PSP really changed the fields so far this season. The 150' length and both Dallas and MAO not having a really large Home bunker. All teams had to adjust. Some a little better than others.

We pitted at Dallas for RL all weekend and was in the pits for Impact during their Damage Game. RL is the most Professional Team as far as preparation during game day. The other teams, a lot of yelling, Cursing and total BS. Even with the language barriers between us that were pitting and many of the players we could still understand the passion RL Players have and they have the ability and drive to be the best. Sometimes the paint doesn't bounce the way we'd like it.

They'll get back to the Champions Division.

No doubt they'll be back in the champions division. And their professionalism is one of the reasons their my favorite team, their just a calm cool and collected team that still goes balls out.

Just gonna put this out there.

Be prepared for Vicious and 187 back to Challengers and RL and CEP back to the Pro. Why? because the new system is flawed. Unless one team has an absolutely terrible or one Challenger goes out and destroys weekend it'll probably flip flop the rest of the season.

The seeding was the issue. RL could have beat several teams in the other bracket without issue. Losing to TonTons was the killer but one bad match shouldn't justify going to challengers. The last practice RL went 13-6 over the TonTons.

I agree with you. The seeding is so flawed.

Well T1 just got Chapman back, and Chapman was doing all the work last year for T1 in D1. I think T1, Texas Storm, and XSV all have a good chances of making it into the Champions bracket for one tournament this year. I think Vicious will come out and play better at Chicago. They were making it past the prelims a few tournaments the last couple years. They have potential.

RL is going to go back and forth, I don't see them ever getting stuck in the challengers bracket. It is more of a matter, can they stay in the Champions at Cali to play at World Cup. That would be very odd not seeing RL in the Champions bracket at World Cup.

I agree. I think they will jump back and forth between the brackets. But I really hope they get in the Champions bracket for world cup. But if their not they will dominate the challengers bracket.

Need an extra person to help pit? And I still think they can do great honestly. not every team can be fully dominant all the time (i.e Dynasty last year) even though they are known for it. I know these guys can pull it off because they work harder than anyone else in the league.

I think we have Chicago Pits Taken Care of. Almost too many. The old man gave up his spot to go pit for some team named Dynasty.

How do you actually get into the pits? Do you have to know people?

My son is part of the k- project that Jason Wheeler coaches. Teams always need at least 4 people in their pits at each event that can be there for every match.

I had no doubt in them. I knew they were going to tear it up. Hopefully they can stay up in champions
