You will find most if not all the highest ranked ZK players
disagree, and I dare you to prove yourself more skillful.
The teamgame your talking about is an ideal teamgame situation where teammates have perfectly equal skill, which never happened and never will happen. Everyone is inherently different so as their skill.
In realistic situation all investments should be made towards the best player. Just like in real war, all investment is made toward the best commander who can save countless lives of soldiers, citizens, and his lieutenants. So it isn't a single player that carries the team but a few.
I had BA games where all my teammates died, yet I won those games because I asked them spawn far away from me, hence I was able to acquire 2 to 3 more metal spots. That 2 to 3 metal spot investment to the best player made all the difference to the outcome of the war. It doesn't matter how many pawns I discard or lose, all that matter is the best player.
The true teamgame is about supporting the best player period.
Lol, 2 to 3 extra metal spots? What do you play, 8v8 DSD? Pretty much that game is
just a battle between the best player of each team in the basin. And the best you usually ask from your team is just to spam in units toward the center to help.
With that limited experience it is no wonder you have such a destructive and condescending attitude toward teammates.

Actually, most games now I find I am happy to have the micro resources of a few of my teammates. Maybe I am just getting weak in my old age. ;D
Also, team games don't need to be huge random pub games. Hopefully, Licho's player juggler will bring out the smaller team games with more evened skill levels.
