Bench Life <3, I gotta get good enough to maybe get a game next wc.That was wild. Sad to see it go but happy it happened. Shoutouts are in order
Boat (phiwings99): Easily top 2 for best captain, from solely personal experience. Your tour record doesn't begin to show how hard you worked and how much you cared. Don't go chasing the past you, just be who you are and you'll find success. Regardless of your under performance here. I'm glad we were on the same team and worked together. I could say more, but I'm planning on staying friends with you post-wc.
AllFourtyOne: Glad we didn't let any silly things pull us apart like before wc. You were a laid back captain, and nice work in pools. I'll have to play smash 64 with you and Yech sometime.
dom: You disliked me after your first series and continued to for the rest of wc. I actually don't think I could fit how many ill-intentioned things you said to and about me while I was literally on your team in this post, but then again, I don't think anybody drafted you for "Waylaid's moral support". You're an incredibly strong player and fantastic builder, and even though, if you had your way, I'd have been banned from West, even I could recognize how helpful you were. It was a wild ride with you on my team, but you still worked hard and helped carry us as far as we got. You likely accounted for like half of our wins, and despite our differences, I respect that. Good work.
Elo Bandit: I wouldn't change a single thing about your performance or you as a teammate. You worked hard, played hard, and gave it your all. I'm sorry that all the teams I prepped with you didn't go so great, but it's pretty clear that you had your prep covered. You played amazingly, and thanks for being one of the west players that took what I had to say with a grain of salt, even though it was you out there instead of me. This is absolutely the height of your prime, so go out, play tours, and kick ass. Also, record that AV Forretress live.
Synonimous: great player, great builder, great music taste, great friend. You popped off this tour, and I think you're easily one of the top players in all of 1v1 right now. Also, get Ramen Nagi with me.
ima: You went 1-3. I wouldn't want anybody else playing bw. I do not care in the slightest what your record shows, I wholeheartedly believe that you're the best bw player. Keep in touch, link me more of your songs, and be on my pl team next year, cuz a tour without your playing and teamwork seems horrible.
Kardistry King: I have no idea who you are, but you did great work in games. Absolutely no regrets about you in ORAS, and keep playing. You clearly have a knack for it.
Scraftionite: One of my favorite 1v1 players and people, you were a constant light in discord, and your fantastic work in pools is what inspired us all to keep on fighting. Except for me, I didn't really have to. But regardless, I'm glad that I got to be in a tour with you, and I look forward to building more wacky sets with you in vc. I still don't know what my shoes are called, btw.
Your ban was dumb, but don't tell Osra I said that.
gyffyrd: I know you didn't get to play much, but I really enjoyed mock bo5-ing with you on ps. You're clearly a great player, and thanks for being a chill dude, as well as a chill teammate. If this is your goodbye to 1v1, I'll be sorry to see you go. Play me in BH if you want. I don't know the tier but I'm down to help you practice if you want the help.
Maki's Fox: Dude, I asked boat to play you soooooo many times. You're a great player and would've done amazingly, but I still enjoyed your company and help even when you didn't. Wouldn't rather have anyone else as my bench buddy.
rozes: Okay, I have no idea who you are, but thanks for being on the team!! I'm sure you would've done great if you'd gotten to play, and I'm glad to have had you on West. See you around, probably.
Baleblaze: I miss you.
DEG: I was sad to see Asia go, but I'm glad to finally see you in action. You're a great player and person in general. Thanks for sending me all those instagram posts, and for commenting on my prom pictures. Yeah, it confused my parents, but that just made it funnier.
Whaleeeee: You're chill as hell and a cool dude. Not too much else to say, but thanks for being a west ally!
Joker 1v1: You weren't in wc, but this is just kinda a shoutout to you. You're a super cool dude, and thanks for always looking out for me. I look forward to testing more silly sets with you.
JediR & I'm actually Cash & ayedan: Y'all are great, and even though you guys were our "rivals", I'm still glad to be in 1v1 with y'all in it. Cash, I'll give you all the heat I built for wc that west didn't use.
WilliamTheo13: You're cool, and go cone!
5luke: Best 1v1 player.
stableprince569: Nobody really cut you any slack, but I think you're a chill dude with a tough job. Nice job managing this year, and I wish it had paid off more for FRITA.
Iron Crusher: You rock
UnleashOurPassion: Thanks for listening to music with me. I wanna be on your team at some point.
alive: Thanks for helping me remember where I came from. Wish I got to team with you, and I'm sorry that central didn't do as well as I had hoped. I'll see you in the Heatrans-remake for pl.
motogp: Thanks for calling me hot
Favorite WC moment was easily Elo's teams against Blazikin, and the series in general. Wasn't sure they'd work, and it was beautiful to see. Best baiter. It made me laugh to see those replays.
Y'all, Waylaid out. Will Waylaid be back? For ghosting tour. Following that? Idk. Prob not. I'll just make an alt so good that not even Quote can rat me out.
s/o TDA for being the homie and tagging everyone it didn't tag, cuz I was worried that some of you guys wouldn't see my post and not know how much you guys meant to my wc. Thank you all for making this tour what it was, and 1v1 is a messy but lovable community. Also, s/o to Osra, not for banning everyone, but for keeping this tour running. Tour management seems like a nightmare, and seems even harder under criticism, so while I may not agree with the decisions made this tour, thanks for making wc possible.
