What is the most competitive brakcet?
I’ve been twinking for years upon years, and the debate always comes up; Which bracket is the most competitive? In this article I plan to do an overall analysis of the current major brackets and judge them on a scale of 1 - 10 (ten being the most competitive) based upon varying factors as well as my personal insight into these brackets. I hope to demonstrate a fairly unbiased opinion and you may or may not agree with me. This article is based on the current state of brackets during August, 2014.
Bracket: Level 10
Competitive Level: 6
Explanation: I will be honest that i’ve only dabbled a bit in this bracket, but my personal friend Sponsor is without a doubt a veteran in this bracket. It’s without question that this bracket holds some extremely dedicated and skilled players. But, I rated this bracket a 5 for a several reasons. The lack of activity on a daily basis is a big reason. Although when PuGs do get going they’re pretty solid, this overall lack of activity leads to no real premade activity as well as no constant participation. In addition to this, the lack of moves/spells can lead to a really stale and bursty playstyle. Some will argue “this makes skill more of a factor” but skill and positioning can only do so much when you’re being one shotted. I think if this bracket was more active, it would definitely be a high 7 in competition rating because the players DO know what they’re doing.
Bracket: Level 19
Competitive Level: 8
Explanation: This bracket is my home bracket, and before I’m accused of rating this unfairly, please allow me to explain myself. Although 19s aren’t the most active bracket, they do have daily games and on occasion 2 games going on at once in the evenings. The majority of games have very elite players on each team, which make for incredibly fun and close... [Read More]
The Present, Past & Future - An Unorthodox Telling
For your eyes, and your eyes only.
Before you continue reading, you should note that nothing I say should be taken too seriously, only taken into custody and chewed on a little.
Alot of the content on this site, or in general related to games, feel so structured and manufactured. I have taken my feet out of the box, and this is the result.
I felt like there was the need to explain this beforehand.
Viewer discretion is advised!
The original thought was to write, inform and educate the youth of twinkers about healing. I wanted to share one of my biggest passions in this game, and interpret it with my life as we went by. And how even the smallest things we do, even in such a miniature section of a game - reflects on who we are as people.
However, I had to get away from the thought, as we were restricted not to write any guide-content.
I had to dig...
Had to go a little deeper. Deep inside the cave of the twinking community...
It's dark, a stank of thick foul breath enters my lounges. I want to cough, but opening my mouth would only result in myself becoming more intoxicated. I cannot see, feel my limbs, body nor face. Yet, I feel naked, I feel alone. It hurts, something hurts. The sound of a thousand screeching whispers penetrate my skull. Moans and yells appear as hollow sounds throughout the dark cave. All my senses start adapting to the enviroment, as a bat adapts to the dark. I can... [Read More]

The 19 Fiesta : A Look into the 19 Bracket Welcome to one of the many blogs you’ll be seeing from me on twinkinfo.com. Today we are going to explore the realm of 19s. It came to my intention whilst making my ‘’Restoring 19 Threads’’ that there was no basic guideline for new players coming into the bracket. So I’m going to give you my personal run down on how the bracket works. I’ll also point out tips and tricks to get your 19 twink(s) up and running.
What are 19s about? What you can expect coming into the bracket.
19s have been known as one of the most iconic brackets of twinking, with a competitive atmosphere that separates it from other twinking brackets to this day. The competitive atmosphere fuels from various aspects, the first being drama. Drama has been a huge powerhouse for 19s. One might look at ‘Drama’ as a negative point. Personally, I believe it is a huge factor in the brackets success. It has proven time and time again to create another unique interest. What other bracket has such stern rivalry between players? Rap Battles, Picnic Destruction's. You'll find no other bracket that has such heartbreaking events. Premades are also a huge part of the competitive atmosphere. Many twinks from across the board have heard of the <Waw Tawent> vs <tRain cOw> premade. This event was a surprise to all. <Waw Tawent>, who was undefeated for years, fell to an underdog team. Guilds tried to defeat <Waw Tawent> failing time
