EMEA was a 1 team region all along

People said I was a fool but I was right FPX (except if they flop) is the only tier 1 EMEA team. literally every region has a clear 1 team that has a chance, is this because the game is new? NA is the closest to 2 teams with 100T beating fnatic but that is yet to be seen.

Are there any regions that aren't 1 team regions?
LATAM? I don't really follow but is lev much better then kru?

I mean not really, I already thought every region was a 1 team region because it's been like this for the whole year, people were just delusional saying it doesn't apply to EMEA.
FPX
PRX
DRX
ZETA
OPTIC
LEVIATHAN
EDG
LOUD

These teams have each been the undisputed best in their region for this whole year

Kru were better than lev at the start of the year.
Zeta have been incosistent and overtaken by northeption.

Yeah thats true for Lev and Kru, so I suppose they are only recently a 1 team region but regardless they have never both been good the same time
Zeta was not overtaken by northeption, they looked better the entire qualifier and choked the finals, thats like saying Xset have overtaken Optic because they beat Optic in the finals

Fair enough.
Though I still think its too early to count out fnatic. They were pretty dominant in challengers 2 just didnt carry the performances to lan.

idk abt the FPX one tho, M3C and FNC both had higher peaks than FPX and while M3C fell off right after FNC definitely were still in form for a while they just didnt get a chance to show it on the stage. I think FNC have fallen from their form in Stage 1 and 2 regionals and its so sad cause that FNC wouldve mopped up all these teams in Champs tho i dont think theyre even gonna make it out of groups if they keep playing liek they are rn.
Also i dont know about optic being the undisputed best in NA, 100T are actually for real good. I think if they faced the optic rn 100T would win simply because they dont allow you to make comebacks like they just did against loud.

Being undispusted best in the region doesn't mean it's a 1 team region

FNC, TL, M3C, G2, ACE, GLD are significantly worse than FPX, but all of them would beat the shit out of DRX, ZETA, EDG and LOUD, aka regional champions (maybe Optic too)

they didn't play well vs 100T though. their strat was a bit curious, like having derke as the point of attack on pearl instead of alfajer, defensive setup wasn't it and easily countered by 100T

FNC literally beat them EVERY MATCH in regionals and once on LAN (in a row)
3 times in regionals 1 time on LAN

Match 1: 2-1 (13-3 | 5-13 | 13-10)
Match 2: 2-1 (13-6 | 12-14 | 13-9)
Match 3: 3-0 (15-13 | 13-5 | 15-13)

If Fnatic can beat FPX but FPX make it deeper in every tourney then what team is better?
is Optic worse then EG because EG beat optic even though they didn't make it as far as optic?

they literally went undisputed the whole stage 2 and beat fpx every time except the lower bracket game and they still made top 4
you cant judge a team just by losing a game , same could be said for liquid , Leviatan won 4/4 pistols and liquid still made it close

I feel like your not reading what I'm saying. It doesn't matter that Fnatic are better then FPX in a head to head since they play tournaments.

No one said fnatic are stronger than fpx, they are just saying that fnatic is a strong team, and EMEA has not been a one team region all along.
You asked: "What tourney was FPX not the best team in the region?" and he said fnatic were better in stage 2
challengers, wich is true (Was not that long ago). Fnatic were better for a short time, but their honymoon phase was over shortly after in masters. But I agree EMEA has been looking like a one team region recently.

Emea is by far the deepest region in valorant. They could send at least 5 teams, fnatic, fpx, Liquid, guild, m3c, that could do good at champions, no other region is even close to that. Next year after roster changes emea gonna be ever stronger, no other region will have a chance.

NA LCQ team beat a EMEA 2nd seed?

Only FPX has a chance at winning champs out of EMEA.
Emea is prob the deepest region but saying 5 teams from EMEA does well at champs is delusion. 2 teams do 'well' at best, 1 of those has the ability to win champs

exactly you gotta factor every tournament hence why you get 1 team regions. what are you gonna factor only teams in a single year then your stats won't stick bozo

What does stats won't stick mean? Over the past year every region has only produced 1 team that has a chance at winning champs

G2 is a single team. Just cuz they played badly once doesn't mean we're shit or anything. Every other region usually has horrible reps, but people like you don't pay attention to them, people like you only care about EMEA and why we underperform. But when Japan deliver (once in their existence), you start to bandwagon and scream about how good Japan is and how bad EMEA is.

#69

That event the only team who has 0 excuse for playing bad is G2. Liquid got into it because FPX had players who couldn't attend. FNC had 2 subs, not having their best player there. It's why there's an Asterix at that event.

Why're you not mentioning that at every event other than Reykjavík, there's been at least 2 EMEA teams in the top 4 placements, and at least 3 in playoffs.

#71

when you only count 1 tourney, it makes being consistent really easy lol

considering there's only been two events so far, we dont really have a lot to go with. If we consider the last 12 months, that's something else.
With the only two events, the top 2 EMEA teams both had players missing in one of them.

Your whole argument is recency bias bro.

Edit - you're also talking down to FNC despite them coming top4 in masters 2, but you know. They're not a competitive team, as EMEA is just a 1 team region. Only fpx have a chance at winning anything despite FNX making playoffs in every event they've attended as a full 5. It would be all minus 1 if we include Reykjavík.

It currently is though? If Fpx was the only good team in EMEA for the next 10 years could you still not say it's a 1 team region since way in the past there were other good teams. Right now there is only 1 team in EMEA that is good enough to have a chance to win champs, what would you call that if not 1 team region

They are not a contender because their only non-eu win was a triple overtime against a team playing in their 1st international. The only teams they can beat are EU teams and it's impossible to play only EMEA teams through playoffs

they just played 1 match... TL played against LEV who beat PRX who was a finalist in the last masters I guess ur familiar with them. And FNC played against 100T you might expect them to win against them but it happens the first match and it wasn't that bad imo.

PRX have done better then TL and FNC the whole year, that is why it's a 1 team region not because FNC and TL lost these matches, these matches just confirm what I already knew
