FFS guys. I agree with Zach. Orange got lucky. L-U-C-K-Y. I don't take away that Orange is a great mage and the use of the wards, counterspell, slow, and spellstealing wasn't an accident. What Orange got lucky on was the Arcane Concentration procs. The video is too blurry for me to see Orange's hp and mana numbers, but without AC, I doubt Orange would have had the mana to cast counterspell, arcane blast, and arcane missles. He got that counterspell for free. The rng blessed Orange at just the right time which augmented his incredible play, propelling him into the stratosphere among mages.And another thing, about the whole "scrub" thing on the last article, people who are bad players and hurting their team should be called out on it. You think most raid leaders are nice 100% of the time on Thaddius on 25 man? That fight is the definition of separating decent players from the ones simply converting oxygen to carbon dioxide. Its different from Heigan, where individual failure is suffered individually for the most part (until enough individuals go down) since a single person can royally screw up an attempt for the whole raid, wasting time, feasts, and repair bills because they can't get their act together. These kind of people, coupled with the southern gy-cappers fully deserve the title scrub. In fact, Blizzard should make it a title that overwrites the current one you have for a set amount of time. A month would be fine by me.For those who are calling Zach "unprofessional" should probably go and write their own column...oh, that's right, virtually all of them don't have one. This is a fan site that has a reputation for calling Blizzard itself out on shortcoming, and the topic of that article (about SotA) is so prevalent that it deserved to be addressed. Forcefully if necessary.That is all.

You can have all the luck in the world and you'll still lose if you don't know what to do with it.The knowing part is called skill.
