For those of you who have run 100 balls, I'm curious to what your FargoRate is. I'm right around 600 Fargo and my high run is 59. I'm curious if there are many around my Fargo with 100 ball runs or not.
Speaking for myself, my early success in 14.1 was merely born of potting ability and CB control. Both of which are more closely related to fargo rate in terms of my ability to win/lose games.I write all this because I'm not sure Fargo really captures all of the many puzzles pieces that goes into 14.1 play. Sure, a guy that's 700+ probably has the tool set to hit 100 or more eventually. But there's a lot to 14.1 that a ~600 level player can probably work on to get them north of 60 by really working on the game.
Agreed 100% - guess I could've turned a novel into two sentences lol.Potting and I'd even dare to say CB control (>2ft) take a back seat in 14.1 to mini pattern IQ/play. Fargo really doesn't care, or better said have a metric for scoring your ability to find and manlipulate these mini patterns.
If you watch some of the Make It Happen videos that Accu Stats has uploaded to YouTube from the mid-2010s, I think you'll see that someone possessed of extraordinary fundamental talent (shotmaking, speed control) can brute force their way into running a 100 balls without needing to play top notch patterns.Going back and watching some of the big runs by the pros, I feel quite often they had to make a few "missable shots" (at least by me) to continue the run.
