Thread: Benching Team

  1. #1

    Benching Team

    Ok so things are coming together and I am vaguely seeing a starting point for us as a team. Maybe nab a few more recruits, then time to start digging in and getting it done.
    Jody is currently working on the finished forum for the site, and we'll have a private section for the team where we can come together and go over strategy and discuss our benching. This WHOLE team will be benching at a "high" level, maybe higher than what some of you are used to . You have my word I will do whatever it takes to make that happen. Focus is less on my benching, but more on making some of you guys better benchers.

    One of the first things is team name. KINGPINCOOLING.COM isn't the final name of the team yet. I have some other ideas, but I want some input from you as it is your team as well. Here are some others I like alot:

    Dragon OC Team
    PURE

    Dragon OC Team would be sweet and the flag should be a skull and crossbones to represent the non-nationality Could always settle on a Somalian flag

    Great idea Vince, just wondering if you need to have a KP Pot to be a part of this team.

    Pure +1

    hehe we are storming up the team ladder ONly about 1100 points off of #8 spot and we haven't even started working yet
    Team is coming together nicely with a lot of quality guys.
    Lets give them all hell....

    @Metro no you don't have to have one of my pots to join the team, but I will do WHATEVER it takes to get you on one soon enough ...WHATEVER IT TAKES buddy.
    Speaking of that did your F1 show up yet Nemesis??

    I have always liked PURE for a few reasons. First there use to be this UT clan called PURE, and whenever I ran into one of these guys in 1vs1 I always walked away from the PC afterwards utterly demoralized . Every one of their members was so freaking stellar at the game it was scary and everyone knew it in the competitive UT community. Thats exactly the kind of vibe I want for our bench team.
    Lets take a look at what the word means and see how it applies to us as a team and where we want to go:

    (1): unmixed with any other matter <pure gold> (2): free from dust, dirt, or taint <pure springwater> (3): spotless, stainless b: free from harshness or roughness and being in tune —used of a musical tone cof a vowel : characterized by no appreciable alteration of articulation during utterance2 a: being thus and no other : sheer, unmitigated <pure folly> b (1): abstract, theoretical <pure research> (2): a priori <pure mechanics> c: not directed toward exposition of reality or solution of practical problems <pure literature> d: being nonobjective and to be appraised on formal and technical qualities only <pure form>3 a (1): free from what vitiates, weakens, or pollutes (2): containing nothing that does not properly belong b: free from moral fault or guilt c: marked by chastity : continent d (1): of pure blood and unmixed ancestry (2): homozygous in and breeding true for one or more characters e: ritually clean4: having exactly the talents or skills needed for a particular role <a pure shooter in basketball>

    Anything with Dragon in it is a good choice too.

    Thats my favourite UT Clan, best 1on1ers, OverToad, Destrukt, XS Pain, I think PURE got bigger after 99 though

    Good to see this coming together. After I saw the list of member list over at HWBot, I was really stoked to see a lot of younger and very skilled benchers being picked up. Seems you'll be grooming them to be some of the best around. Can't wait to see the upcoming scores and more meet ups from you guys. This looks like it could be a very good thing

    I like PURE for the team name.

    Hey KP, thats great news! Great site you have, hope construction goes well around.
    I was thinking on how is the new pot Venom going to perform vs F1EE.
    Also I think I´ll buy some insulation items for prepare OCing again. Just got a new bench table.
    Good luck on going to the top

    I didn't even know it shipped yet. I'm guessing it will be here tomorrow if you shipped friday. I've got a couple more purchases to make (as you know) and then my onslaught will begin. Quakecon will be here in a couple weeks and I had something special planned prior to the formation of the team.

    Not sure about the name thing. K|ngp|n Cooling seems just fine to me.
