Behind the Plan Limp

Behind the Plan: Limp

A player who always strives to be competitive, Limp is one of those old mythers who has done it all in MWC. With a chance to flex his organising muscles with the 25 point cap, can Limp both outthink and outplay the opposition with his team?

I’ll start with asking whether 7 players is enough and whether you’re happy with what you have.

Our roster as of now consists of Ghengis, Akira, Thalander, Captain, Kryptos, Rodekill, Wank, Homer, and myself. I also intend to try and get some activity from some inactives by having them on our “bench” as well, since as far as I can tell the 25 point cap functions on a per match basis. Seven players is absolutely not enough, for my preference 8v8 is ideal for any MWC game, and that is not currently possible. Achieving complete attendance from any of these rosters 100% of the time is actually absurd.

How active are you and your team? Is qr1’s forfeit a one off?

I am as active as I have been for any MWC I have participated in since roughly 2007. I’ve had actual contact with every single person on the roster, so that’s a good sign. The QR1 forfeit was intentional as four or five of us showed, but it seemed a balanced match with a few subs was more beneficial for my team to emulate a more typical match, as a 4v7 would result in unmanageable distributions for almost any player.

Yes, it is a one off, we managed to show with several players and several more intend to, which means we are as active as any other team.

Do you think your team is underrated?

The majority of the players on this team have been 4 ballers, but we are old, lazy, and mostly inactive, while still being capable of turning it up in the right circumstances. So whatever rating that is.

What role will you take on the team? Supportive or taking significant amounts of units?


Limp

My role will be mostly judged on who shows up. People expect me to captain so that usually ends up happening. Realistically, if I’m sitting on my couch and playing with my laptop on my trackpad, I will captain and pay a lot of attention to whats happening and take very few units. This accounts for like 75% of the time now because meh. The other side of this is when I sit at my desk with a keyboard and mouse, this is when I take far more units and micro much more, but pay far less attention to whats going on around me.

Do you think your team has fewer weak links than others?


Limp

It depends what a weak link really is in this tournament. With so much emphasis being based on attendance because of the cap, participation may be more influential than actual talent.

How did you approach team construction within the 25 point limit?


Limp

I actually just made the team because almost all of the people I love playing with were not on a team the day before roster construction ended. I wanted to have Trev, Dantski, and Sam as well, but Trev and Dantski aren’t playing and Sam had other plans. With the space left over I asked people I’ve known for decades to fill the gaps. It ended up working out really well in some regard. Most of our TA’s are mid 3’s as almost all of us are somewhat inactive, so we were able to band together.

Whats the target for this team?

There is no explicit goal, other than I guess to win since we signed up.

Who will win MWC?


Limp

It’s likely that GKG will win MWC, because care. I would like to think we have a shot, but realistically in a head to head match up they will strategize for a week straight and I will glance at the maps once. TIME WILL TELL

And lastly do you have anything else do say about your team?

My team dedicates and shares any potential victories with Broken Cow, Killer, Inferno, and Kugar.
