Peixoto of course they don't have the highest rating of all 3vs3 teams, but they had the highest rating that's ranked atm as well as they got this rating a fair way as far as i can tell. No picking opponents, no stalling, no alts on the ladder. So i guess they deserve it

Sure, their rating isn't that high, but it's a new ladder so obviously there isn't going to be a fully established ladder and super accurate ratings off the bat. All new ladders have started out like this.

Peixoto, we have particularly good wins against buns and math wolf, our only losses would be to sephi and your team if not for various boots (we also lost to sephi and you because of boots, but we lost on picks in those two in particular anyway lol). We've beaten everyone else in the current top 10, bar jef from an aforementioned boot loss we would be ahead on; and ale who we're currently in a game against (and winning against in my mind). Not sure what else you want from us.
I think Farah mentioned that without the boot losses where we were either ahead or would win off picks, our bayeselo after losing to Peixoto/beren would be in the 2040s? We have a win after that and are ahead in every other game we're currently in, so that's only going up. But you'd have to ask him since he's the math guy.

No one said anything about their rating, they earned every point they got, but they weren't even ranked in the ladder in the past few days and they rejoined when the 2 highest teams weren't ranked. So no, they don't diserve it.

To be honest, the only teams that "deserve" the 3v3 trophy right now are Sze+Gnuff and the SNinja team. I think we'll "deserve" it if we beat SNinja, since we already beat Sze+Gnuff. Of course, all of this is irrelevant, as getting 1st place trophies has nothing to do with deserving them.

The problem with a team having to "deserve" a ladder trophy, is: how do you define "deserve"? And, would this carry over to all ladders? Farah+Smoove didn't do anything bad morally or illegally, they had the right rating at the right time, and while some people say, that may not be enough to "deserve" the trophy: what is?

Well done Farah, Gustave and Super Smoove. Also well done to Math Wolf and Jackie Treehorn who also took first place in the 3v3 ladder yesterday but missed out on the trophy.
Peixoto saying anyone doesn't deserve the trophy is the pot calling the kettle black. Our team has never had the highest rating on the ladder and have only reached first due to other higher rated teams leaving the ladder, so by that logic we don't deserve it either.
A lot of teams in the ladders only reach first as a result of other more highly rated teams leaving, if Farah's team doesn't deserve the trophy then by that logic neither do quite a lot of other people deserve their trophies.
Peixoto is just grumpy because he doesn't like the fact more people are getting the 3v3 trophy.
