Since I started paying attention to my own performance WoT skill metrics basically divided players into two groups. There were the "blurples" and the "greens". Yes, I understand those of you who are turning different shades of "blurple" have further divisions for yourselves; but to those of us who stand agape and in awe of your royal hues, it makes little difference. Since the most recent color category update a new and wonderful palate has been added and shifted. While I have some reservations with red now being the "average", I understand the reasoning... So we still have tomatoes, apricots, and lemons. The fiery hues of improvement are clearly defined. We now have a couple of green shades; above-average and above above-average... Makes sense. This teal, however... It's nice. Makes me feel good about myself. Sure, I'm not blue... Will take another 6k games or so to get there, too! But, I'm above even the darkest green. I have crossed some (possibly arbitrary) barrier and transcended the mere "adequate" rating I had as a green. My question to the population is how do YOU see us teals? Are we more blue or more green? When you see someone with an 1800 WN8 in a pub, do you dismiss him as just another average pubbie, or do you begin to approach his potential abilities as you would a blueish player? What do you expect from me? Can you count on me to hold my own? Do you think I can take care of that flank? Do you trust me to reset cap in time? I often see unicum looking for "other purples" to play with, but sometimes tagging an almost flippant, "but a blunicum will do in a pinch" on the end... Is teal too low to stoop? Are we mutated greens or misshapen blues? I feel as if pure greens can be afraid to approach a teal but as a teal I feel a bit hesitant to assume my abilities will be trusted by anyone "better". Fitting considering I am in LIMBO... We're recruiting experienced tournament callers and players, BTW. TL;DR - What does it mean to be teal?
