I'm curious as to what benifit a pro team gets 'practising' against casual teams? By casual I do include premade teams of casual players. I had the unfortunate experience of playing against a pro team this morning and it was a complete non event for our team.
There is not alot you can take away from a game against a team that is sitting on teamspeak crunching a team into the ground. I don't see what the pros get out of this type of game, would it not be better to play a custom match?
I'm happy to learn from my experiences and have done just that playing with some very good players but a game like this doesn't seem to benifit anyone. It is of course better than AFK players but not by much. Maybe if there was a replay system in place it would be worth it for the review but until then....
