Congratulations to JesusC for redeeming this Team Article on Team Rank 5
When it comes to legacy and success within Team Hearth League, Not many teams are on par with Team Rank 5, Formed all the way back in Season Beta, TR5 are one of 2 oldest running teams in league. The other being Noob Central who were also formed in Beta
Mainge founded "Rank 5" Back in Season Beta. The season was a success.Team Rank 5 made the playoffs, losing in the Quarter Finals by just 1 point to the eventual champions: Gosu Casuals.
It was clear from the get-go that Team Rank 5 meant business. But Season Kappa saw them finish third in the Frankerz division, narrowly missing out on a playoff spot. Also playing at the time was well known THL members Imbolc and CaptainMurdoc who ended up becoming one of the first lower seed player to ever hit legend in Team Hearth League's community.
Captain Mainge rebuilt the team for the future after missing the playoffs. Signing up real life friend JesusC along with lost soul Cassity14. Nobody expected JesusC to do as well as he did, but constant rumours of hard work and long days of practicing were true, He started to establish himself as a very very strong 5 seed. Team Rank 5 made an incredible run all the way to the Season 1 Finals. The run ended with a heartbreaking loss to Noob Central, It was intense but alot of credit goes to Josseroo who was known for his next level spreadsheets and preparation.
In Season 2, Team Rank 5 were determined to try again, They did very well by getting to the Semi Finals. JesusC put in a magnificent season performance that won him the MVP award for Season 2, despite huge competition from several other candidates. His influence to the team at this point was irreplacable, As was those mentoring him.
Season 4: Celebration was a very successful season. Team Rank 5 recruited THL's number 1 star, Slimsch. Along with LoadedLux and Roguejt. They finished the season unbeaten and Team Rank 5 won the championship! Not only that but Slimch went on to claim his 2nd THL championship and also his 2nd MVP award, If he was the most decorated player before Season 4, well this just took it way beyond that level.
Congratulations to IMBOLC who redeemed this article on Temporal Legends
Temporal Legends were formed at the beginning of Season 4, Their captan? HectorHowl. HectorHowl had joined THL in the midst of Season 3 and made an immediate impact by joining a team as a sub for the last 4 games of the season, going 4 wins and 0 losses and establishing himself as one of the most dominant newcomers to ever come into Team Hearth League. One of those wins came against Team Rank 5, Their current 1 seed at the time: Imbolc.
A huge CONGRATULATIONS to Aeon 3 seed Darkseid for using his points to purchase a brand new THL Article on the week 3 episode of Friday Night Fight
Aeon are a team that have always been “attractive”. Now when I say that, I mean they have always attracted the attention of others.
Richard Staub asked me back in the end of season Kappa if I wanted to be a team captain, at the time I had to decline him because even though I was flattered at being considered captain material. I felt I would learn more about both the game and the community by sticking with The Hairy Generals for a little while longer. So that is what I did, It was definitely the correct decision as I had a lot to learn and learning from the founder of Team Hearth League was the best way to learn.
In the Season 2-3 offseason, one of the teams fell through and they needed to get a new team captain within about 2 weeks of the season starting, Richard came to me and told me about the situation and asked if I was still interested in being a captain someday and if so now was the time. This time I was ready so I agreed.
Within a week I had a team made and I was confident in the fact that getting a #1 legend player into the team I would be doing really well this season. Well Season 3 came around and it was a complete disaster. I came to hate SPL as a huge distraction and the lack of THL experience was evident in results. We finished the season bottom 3 in the entire league, along with Boom Squad and Entropy.
First off - A huge congratulations to NWA 4 seed Force of Will for being the first to purchase a brand new THL Team Article!
Nagas With Attitude aka N.W.A were formed in Season 3 and made immediate headlines in the THL world by signing at the time one of the biggest one seeds ever in Team Hearth League: HotAsianGirl in his first ever season and also the hottest 4 seed of the time - Craeon.
Captained by the league’s second bearded beauty Nacl/Salt aka Arthur Rhodes (previously a member for Entropy)
N.W.A are one of the most consistent, close knit and hard working teams in THL. To anyone new to the league, never count out N.W.A as they have made the playoffs every single season since they were formed. In season 3 they narrowly missed out on a finals spot, losing by 1 point in a 13-14 thriller with Team Avatar. That set the standard that they have stuck to ever since, even keeping mostly the same line up throughout their history up until the present.
Season 4 and 5 saw the rise of Tony Montana and also current 2 seed PinkSamus, becoming the definition of consistent. Now, no matter who he is up against, it is extremely difficult to bet against him and last Friday was no different, coming up against MVP runner up DLineman and sweeping in a 3-0 victory.
Along side Pinksamus, TonyMontana took down THL favourite Slimsch in a thrilling 3-2 victory, Placing N.W.A at the top of the purple division. Newcomers may be surprised, but for those that have been around for many seasons now, This comes as no surprise as they prove time and time again, they are a force to be reckoned with.
