Fair enough, but I don't think they mean Uran with their classic team. At least I hope so, because I'd like to see Uran in T-A or P-N and later in Pais Vasco.

Rome wasn't built in a day. However, I think it was built faster than Quickstep's GC team

Why bother failing at overall GC of GTs when you can win everything else.

Why bother having a mediocre cavalry when you can crush them with a powerful infantry?
