"I'm thankful for the wonderful people over at Rectify Gaming, Ty, and Blake, Owner and Director of Development, giving us a home to grow and provide a championship winning formula for Rectify." - Shadyy, Coach of Rectify B44
Team PUGSTARZ will now play under Rectify Esports.
The full roster is as follows:
Tamale, the team’s scope had this to say about the current state of his team:
“Myself and the team are feeling very confident about this premier league and we are practicing/scrimming almost everyday. We have only been a team for a month and there’s obviously a lot we can improve on and are still improving as we go. We also know the meta has been changing and are going to adapt as each update hits the game. But as of now we are still learning and enjoying the game. And are thankful for the opportunity to compete at the highest level in Battalion 1944 and wish the best of luck to each team competing!”
With the meta constantly in flux as the state of Battalion is changing with new patches, and thus different balance, Tamale’s statement is a solid take. The idea that they as a team need to continually adapt is a mindset often times necessary to compete at a high level. In this case it’s especially important to consciously recognize this, since Battalion could, in a sense, be a different game in patches to come.
Shadyy, coach of Rectify, followed up with the idea of adaptation:
Being given the opportunity to coach such a well driven team that wants to win, learn, and keep winning is all I need to want to do my job helping the team watch film, design certain scenarios in practice for certain teams and situations in game. I'm thankful for the wonderful people over at Rectify Gaming, Ty, and Blake, Owner and Director of Development, giving us a home to grow and provide a championship winning formula for Rectify. My big thing for the guys is to be able to build an out of game bond as much as possible, playing games that aren't so competitive to help relax the mind from stress, also being there as almost like a mediator, it's okay for teams to argue and get things off their chest, it helps us stay calm and not want to take things out on each other, this being said, I am happy to these moments with these guys, and just know to Fear The Sting.
It is certainly true in an environment that promotes harmony, that leads to learning, the coach can be seen as the centerpiece of a team. Addressing the mental game of working as a team is taxing, and is undesirable for many players that are more concerned about their mechanics — rightfully so.
The idea of longevity amongst Rectify is promising. You can follow this upcoming team via Twitter here.
