I wonder if Xfactor regrets not playing Slowiak more/dropping him.

Slowiak is a great player without a doubt, but lets not discount the overall Ironmen team in this win. Much like the Russian Legion they have been grinding their way up and molding new talent for a while. It was just a matter of time before they rose to the occasion. Personally, I am just stoked to see another hat in the ring. It seams like this bracket is getting more and more competitive each year which keeps everyone on their toes and forces each team to try to push the envelope.

I don’t know about it being just a matter of time. Arguably their three best players just left and they immediately bounce back and not just perform well, they outright win?

I don’t think people would have been surprised if they didn’t make the first cut. This win was nothing short it awesome.

how many players can you fit on a roster? I bet if Impact could field 20 player they would roster 20. Who does xfactor sit? Its not like nick is bad, but you cant field everyone on a team full of players that should play lights out.

Nick played great, that does not mean hes a god.

I cant imagine what it feels like to be an Archie, Fedorov, Malloy. Expected to be lights out all the time. You can't play conservative, just go off. Nick was clutch when he needed to be, but was otherwise conservative. Todd only needed to rely on him several times, which is the key to success. He can spin every point because he does not need to go off every point. Great team win.

Once Ironmen picked up A-Rod, I felt they had a shot to win a tournament this year, but I never would've thought it would be the first one out of the gate haha. So happy for Todd after grinding it out all this time. Really cool to see how much fun all those guys were having on and off the field too. Seemed like they had more fun in one tourney than I've seen Ironmen have in the past couple years combined.

Watching A-rod is fun - he's always busting through the middle and plays strong. Agreed it's so nice to see Todd on top after sucking so much for so long. Hope he can keep up the energy.

Nice!

Congrats Ironmen!

I’m sure Nick Slowiak was helpful in their win against X-Factor, not to mention A-Rod.

It would be nice to see the Ironmen or Russian Legion win the whole thing this year. Everyone knows they are shooting the best Markers lol.

Now I can rep my Ironmen Dye-Fit shirt proudly!

Great to see Ironmen pick up a win. I believe this is their first in the NXL, no?


I also was rooting for Revo to come through and finally pull out a win. They played tough all weekend.

Another great day for Dye. I wore my Ironmen jersey at the field sunday to show tribute. I sorta feel bad for RL. How many times have they made it this far and came up short? The number of Sundays RL makes has to say something about them as a team. On a side note, I hope Chad from Houston Heat recovers fast! Way to go Ironmen!!!!!!!

Yep, first win in the NXL (Started 2014-15 season, Dynasty won Cup that year).

I believe it's just an ankle sprain. Have checked ESPN for the injury report.

They were straight sniping people OTB. Great win. Happy for Todd and glad to see some new teams winning events.

Jokes aside, I’ve been an Ironmen fan for a bit now and it’s been awesome to see for the past few years with pickups they make a decent showing and “of course they didn’t win, they’re building”. Understandable.
Then this offseason they have a huge change in several ways, and win Vegas out of the gate. Awesome. Can’t wait to see some of their matches

It was nice to see an old legendary program get a win. It also makes me laugh to see people keep pooping on Dye, but people seem to keep winning events with their guns.

As of right now, the Ironmen are the final "factory" pro team right?
