true EU has ass aim and cned is a average player in NA
Listen man ik ur takes are usually world class and you're a respected commenter around here with a great reputation...
but this one is just not it man
lischen 'ere bruv, i nkaow yar chtakes are uschually w'rld class and cha're a reshpected commenta round ere' with a splendid and schtupendus repertoire......
but this specific example t'isnt it fam
I mean he has some good points we'll see though. I can see some teams getting absolutely smashed by NA's speed
NA’s speed is nothing compared to BR’s, NA is the worst of all styles. We have neither the stacked teams, the absurd speed, the great utility, or the insane set plays. BR takes Iceland because no one is prepared for their speed, after that maybe we see NA improve enough to beat NA and BR.
I think at the start eu won't be used to it and in Reykjavik at least NA can come out on top, but EU will learn fast and for Champions for sure EU will win.
U guys rlly sleeping on Korea. Vision Strikers gonna dominate both scenes. There performance in Korea is really strong.
Korea is basically Vision Strikers and a bunch of teams that would be borderline Tier 2 in NA or EU
also their not there
every single TOP NA team lost to tier 2 or worse teams once and they are so inconsistent that it looks like a region of matchfixers while VS didnt even lose a single match in korea and dont tell me the others are a bunch of tier 2 players. VS play control style and as we see its the best style so far!
every region plays the way its needed for them and tenz looks like he forgot the NA teams are all inconsistent af! if NA style would work in korea, eu, they would have done that there too since its easier.
css/csgo looked the same at the beginning when you watched the NA and EU region in direct comparison. Its typical for NA playing fast, improvise and risk a lot while EU trust more in control and safety. there are people in csgo who are 10x better than tenz was in csgo and even they cant dominate EU with the NA style and thats something tenz is ignoring. EU massacred a whole region (NA) with their control style and that means something.
tenz can talk as he wish but he wont see iceland imo!
i think the exclamation marks pussy jett adds after every post really gives him a certain flare that makes him superior to all!
It's nice to know he doesn't watch EU at all. Means the NA teams are sleeping on EU and will be surprised.
I mean, do you people even watch matches? NA is so much slower I literally fall asleep half the games. Not even close to being as explosive as EU.
My prediction is that NA will be constantly flashed and generally fucked over trying to escape from utility. And the only players who will somewhat get away with are duelists.
Also NA teams are hella unimaginative and you can see that in their stagnant comp selection.
how can u say that na teams are unimaginative if u are sleeping half the games /s
I think NA will be surprised in Iceland just because they have some very arrogant players, when they find players like CNED and Sacy, or Mwzera and take a 13-0 stomp mechanically, they will get a reality check. I have the same impression as you when I watch the NA games, this weekend I decided to watch 100T vs Envy and I thought it was a horrible game mechanically, it seems that the players are playing Counter Strike inside Valorant and use the utilities very badly compared to EU, KR, and BR, nothing surprises me in the NA style of play, they are not the best region tactically or mechanically, many talk about TenZ and Asuna but for me they are just good players, players that really catch my attention are Sick and Dapr.
That was a very hot take, my friend. Absolutely +1 on the Sick part, so underrated. NA watchers seem to enjoy flashy plays over consistent quality. They would prefer TenZ over sick and babybay over victor etc.
absolutely, people hype TenZ, Asuna, Cned, Scream but they forget players like SicK, Victor, Yacine and Nukkye who always bring consistent value
All of those players are insanely consistent but you are on the right track. Some of them peak higher than the others and I would consider Victor one of the less consistent members of that group. Perhaps TSM's or some of NRG's players are better examples at least in NA since they are great players with inconsistent to bad results when they should be competitive in the Tier 1 space.
I believe that the NA scenario is leveled down and they will suffer a lot in Iceland because they don't study teams from other regions, the whole world knows how Sentinels plays, but from what TenZ said in the clip it shows that he doesn't give a damn idea of how the EU scenario, which is the biggest of all, works, so I doubt he has seen any match from KR, BR, LATAM, Turkey, CIS.. Sentinels will be stompped in Iceland because they are arrogant.
They exaggerate this but they will see in Iceland the European team will beat them very easily cned is already a very good player but tenz just lifegame :) eu>na ?
From what I see, NA teams have not been watching Valorant across the world, as they have no idea of what the regions play like.
In Iceland, right now, I think the strongest regions will be EU-BR-KR, since the game is new. But from the long term, EU will dominate with tactics. KR also will be very strong, but for now, aside from VS, I don't see their teams being strong.
That being said, I don't think NA will dominate whatsoever (but I could be wrong tho).
Using FaZe as an example is a pretty bad idea. I mean he saw for himself what happens when FaZe faces off against a team with equal/greater talent (Sentinels). They fall out of rhyme, get scared, have nothing to fall back on and get embarrassed. They showed no signs of making any adjustments aside from slowing down and looking lost.
I don't see this changing at all on LAN against greater international talent. No longer pubstomping mediocre NA teams online while vibing at home. Despite what the game looks like, this game isn't Overwatch or Call of Duty - gotta use the brain.
Good prediction. I hope he makes a watch party when he watches the matches from home.
