this is gonna be close, i got SEN 2-1 though
Minor updates to observing
Sentinels have been trolling a lot of their games so it's a little hard to rate them. However assuming it's still the same Sentinels that we've been used to, they should roll over Faze.
Faze has shown some good play. They looked pretty good at the beginning of their TSM games. However as soon as TSM made an adaptation they rolled over Faze. I expect the same to happen here.
The only games they have trolled were seeding matches tbf. I think the main question for their performance will be if shahzam will be able to perform as well as he usually can considering his dad just passed and as a result they haven't practiced as a team for a while. Either way should be a good match as faze are in good form so far.
considering shahzam's situation faze might take a map off, but i expect a close 2-0
Match time's being swapped - https://twitter.com/Hiko/status/1334706691590373376?s=20
sentinels will destroy faze
I wouldnt be too sure, Tailored said they havent practiced recently due to the passing of Shaz's father. FaZe could pull an upset, 2-1 FaZe
See that’s the thing, sentinels don’t scrim a lot compared to other teams. Regardless of Shazam’s situation, they haven’t prepared for so long to have a first round exit against FaZe. No chance for FaZe 2-1 lmfao
you also said "its gonna be close 2-1" earlier lmfao make up your mind
My guy said 2-1 for faze, which I said there’s no chance for. You must have seen previous sentinels games such as vs T1. They might drop a super close OT map, but that’s about it. Nice try!
lol 2-1 faze he said
lol 2-1 sentinels close game you said
2-0 with Faze falling off entirely in later rounds but if Babybay frags out 2-1 easily
if shazam doesnt play well and babybay and corey pop off like theyve been doing during the closed qualifier, faze might be able to win
Sentinels 2-0, I don't even know why anyone is giving faze a chance, when push comes to shove and it actually matters.....faze underperform, ez clap for 150k
if marved is the igl i swear to god rawkus is not up to par with the rest of the faze roster
holy fuck this is just radiant matchmaking
No executes, no refrags/trades, no comms. Sen is the best in NA? Then NA is lost.
How are you thinking about this website so far ?
It's nice, like a second HLTV. Although I'd prefer if there was more off topic threads and banter.
I think I remember your name, have I seen you somewhere?
I'm sorry but this is a stupid take. I've watched most of the NA and EU matches and there is no comparison, the quality of teams in NA in every aspect is superior on average. With that said, G2 is the best team for me.
Yeah, no. I have yet to see an execute from NA. Seems like no matter how much money gets pumped in NA will always be pugteams and content creators. Just because you have more orgs rushing to buy teams in NA doesn't mean it's not an overinflated cesspool of garbage teams.
SUMN FC showed to be a better team than any NA team I've seen. So have heretics.
So basically you haven't watched NA's first strike main event
Literally watched all of First Strike. Show me ONE execute that is above puglevel from any team other than T1.
You're a clown, Heretics won today without any real tactical nous, largely due to "pug" qualities i.e. players clutching. You clearly have an agenda. Any good team at this level needs to be able to adjust on the fly and go away from preset executes and other tactical plays. Sentinels is the best and most consistent at this between NA and EU.
Heretics literally executed even on retakes. Are you out of your mind? I won't speak with silvers. If you can't understand what a difference between 2 smokes and 50 raw duels against literally cohesively throwing all your utility at the enemy to make him the least comfortable on his duels and win then no matter how much you watch of this game, you will never learn. Heretics were outstanding, especially on retakes. They put more thought and strategy towards their map control and simple territory pushes than what NA teams put on their entire gameplan.
Also, there is no need to adjust when there is nothing to adjust to. Much like in matchmaking.
i think if you like executes then probably t1 from na is up your alley. they run a lot of executes but their attack side is really lacking due to their passiveness as a team (and also because they're easy to read)
T1 is the perfect example why you can't use "executes" as a measure of a team's ability. Any team can read T1 like a book if they stick to pre-programmed maneuvers, the VOD on all of the teams is plenty at this point. That's why T1 started off so hot and then got decimated against 100T. It's not rocket science.
