Do you even believe this yourself?
I was never going for r1 in 3s or tryharded for that, the only season I played 3s kinda serious was back then with Potholder / Mgmage.
And there we beat Quodan and Braha on RMP 2x in a row and Braha lost -20 rating twice.
That season he did not get elite weapons and quit the server for 1month ++.
But sure, I do understand you. Quodan, Arty and Braha helped you to receive Gladiator in 2s. Heck, he even logged your account and played games so you can receive it.
I am sure you are not biased towards this issue ;)
