An Ode to Game Theory

Who knew? Certainly not me for a start

In light of Paddy's effective retirement, here then marks somewhat of a sad end for Game Theory with none of the original players from the start of season 3 being part of this great club now. So this is a celebration of all things GT as they move into a new era under AP13

The Players


Lets have a look at the ones that have fallen then...

Rightly the winner of captain of the season in season 3, Paddy was one of the best GK's that season being one of the most improved players and surprising all but everyone in doing this. It just proves that if you play more then you will get better and without his solid performances at the back they might not even have come so high come the end of the season. He was the only one of the original GT to make his way into the 4th season but after his retirement he was the last of the original crew to fall.

The Vice-Captain who took the reins of the team on countless occasions after Paddy's inactivity on Wednesdays at the start of the season. And he was the unsung hero for GT, the Kosovan being unknown on his arrival to the league and has now established himself as one of the most consistent forwards in the league. However, having not being promised the game time he wanted at GT he took the tough decision to part with Paddy and start a new adventure, ending up at AM-99's Eagles United.

HE BARE IMPROVED Y'KNOW. The MVP for Game Theory, dale shone up front for them winning the Striker of the season scoring 7 and setting up 8 throughout the season in GT. After not really establishing himself in any team, he was always an unlocked talent waiting for a proper home and GT was that place, with him in his natural 3v3 environment he really did just flourish. However he did have to leave at the end of the season due to personal reasons and this really is such as shame for the team and the league.

Rachel

Not being at the club as much as the others mentioned before her, but still part of the 'old GT' as it would be called now and this is yet another reason why this club is so great - what other team would Rachel of all people be contended at? You know you've got a good thing when she is enjoying her time at a team. Being like many others that have played for Game Theory, diverse and being able to play in lots of different positions she is just another example of the greats of the team.

bert

bertie xxxx. Aside from being the 2nd cutest on Galaxy after Wawamax, bert was almost the epitome of what GT was, giving 'youth' players a chance and despite not really getting the game time near the end of the season he was vital for GT near the start of the season when the squad was more threadbare and Paddy could not play most Wednesdays. He ended up parting with the team almost at the same time as lr and going to the same team as him in Eagles United.

'The Crossdresser'

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Finally, probably the luckiest/best signing of any team in the history of ever ever, The Crossdresser or Ogre as he is more commonly known did not play many games for them but was always there just to make the opponents just a little more shook. This stab in the dark was also a good epitome of GT and other captains would not have been as brave as Paddy was in the signing of this one.



The Matches


No great club is good without epic matches, and GT is no different...


Game Theory 1-1 Haxball Revolution

Yet another mlf.gif

A result that nobody expected at all, certainly the players of my team, this point for GT did let them make their stamp on the league and after going ahead from the goal shown above from dale, they defended like champs and even after finally conceding they kept their heads and I think that this was the platform that led them onto bigger and better things...


Game Theory 3-2 The Defenders


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

lr16 clinching the win for GT
Now having established themselves in the Division as one of the top sides, this streamed game was one of the most epic of the lot, with crazy moments such as Ren scoring on 400 ping and the final great goal shown above which got them the 3 points in the end. This game all but secured GT getting Champions League haxball which they certainly did have fun in...


Game Theory 2-1 Drewa

Rachel stealing the victory

A game which excellently kills the idea that UK teams just bus Very Happy. A game which had many twists and turns in it, from an open goal miss from lr to some last gasp defending from GT themselves, after going down 1-0 to the Slovakian side, they fought back with a vengeance, equalling the game and then finally winning in the first game of any galaxy team in the Champions League. This was the first bit of European recognition for Game Theory and the win was well deserved if nothing less but for the sheer spirit they showed.


The Club


I think the reason that I just like GT so much is that you can draw so many comparisons with them and #oldhR. Both teams were not predicted to have a sniff in their respective campaigns and they prevailed with players that might not necessarily have been signed by other teams. The team is just one of those that was a spirit and is so likeable really - teams with soul anyone? We all will miss Paddy's 3v3 rooms, the best of which the UK has ever seen in all honesty. Not only this but the team does keep its ethos of signing not exactly the most established players and maybe unlike hR they have kept this, signing players such as Lethal and undrctrl to join AP13 in a different kind of GT. In the end, hats off to all that have been part of Game Theory. It is teams like these that really do make this league as great as it is. I hope that this is a proper send off to you Paddy, Max and Paddy forever (yes homo) paddy
