Gestalt is a german word that basically means combiner. A group that operates as one, or something.
I've never heard anyone call them Special Teams until here. Makes them sound like they're mentally handicapped, the way the word "special" gets used stateside. I tend to get annoyed at "combiner" as a group name. Marvel introduced the term Subgroup for all thematic teams. Dinobots, protectobots, headmasters, actionmasters. "Subgroup wars" sounds silly as a title, as does "Special Teams Wars," but Subgroup sounds considerably more official and technical than combiners or special teams. To me, "combiner" is a thing, what a particular group does, not a viable title like Targetmaster or Protectobot.
I'm not sure what I'm trying to say anymore. But I never heard anyone use the term Special Team in this manner, before I came here.
