Having played and co played with Matthew before, I can say that he is a great team player and not a selfish player either. For me, I think the "lack of caps" being said around here reasoning is pretty clear - a combination of bad positioning (at the moment) and facing pretty good opponents with a unreliable group of tribe members. You cannot blame Matthew for having low caps for the op he created, as it was done with little effort from his team as players failed to send because they went inactive or whatever. And if an op is lousy, of course it ain't going to succeed against decent players and he ain't going to get as much as he would want from it because his tribe members let him down.
That being said, having low caps doesn't mean you have low war contribution. I'm sure he fakes, nukes, sends support and takes a sit or whatever when he can.
We'll just see what happens in the future, I guess.
And Al, stop trying to pick on my Matt
