You are always spreading negativity for no reason. Do you think such threads are helpful?

There is a reason why there is so much hate for KR in VLR and you are one of the problems as always. You are not helping yourself and your region out.

For me it's about the image that you create for yourself and partly just makes KR fans look worse on this site.

With how things are going you won't ever see more than 1KR team on stage.

normally not, he plays more of an initiator role in his previous teams. He seems very talented mechanically and they have time maybe they put him on the duelist role but tbh they don't have anyone else who plays Raze in the team.

This is my pickem
https://www.vlr.gg/pickem/9d9b5c86

I went for two really big upsets here, the first one is EDG coming alive out of group A which is tbh very hard to do and probably very unrealistic and the 2nd being Zeta beating Loud in a possible rematch.

My reasons are that PRX and EDG are scrimpartners who probably knew each other very well and when it comes to that PRX kinda struggles against teams who are generally prepared for the set-plays they have and also my absolute Hopium/Copium take on EDG being a team with a lot of potential and firepower. Realistically both PRX and Liquid probably win group A but with the 2nd place curse everything can happen. Also Liquid kinda don't lose to latam teams so they probably beat Lev.

In Group B you have my Zeta pick:
Zeta is a team that tbh nobody surely can predict how they will do, they haven't played in a while and are bootcamping in Poland since the last two weeks with a the young sub Xdll who is 16 year old. Also with them being a team that's like to anti-strat they maybe can cook up some stuff that just beats a team like Loud in a rematch. They are right now a big "?" and I would like to see them performing well.

Yep this news is for all of tier 2, it will be announced in about two hours from what I heard so far. It will be super exciting for teams sticking to the tier 2 scene.

They looked really great I think, I knew they would be crazy having myself some insider scrim info (which said they are at least as good as DRX and having the potential of PRX) but I never expected them to have this fundamentaly great style they showed throughout LCQ.

I expect them to make at least playoffs for Champions and have a similar performance what DRX showcases.
But what makes them really have great potential is the quality of the players, everybody seems to be able to step up whenever it is needed and no one being a liabilty is a unbelievable advantage to have. If KK is dead then Life can carry if Life is dead so can Nobody just clutch out the round and so can Chichoo and Haodong. What I want them to do is to straight up fly to Europe arrive as fast as possible and scrim much as possible, steal some of the utility setups other teams have and invest the resources to catch up a bit on the current meta.
That being said they are for me an incredible team having some of the best fundamentals I have ever seen from a team and also firepower that rivals the best of the world. I can see them make a top 3 run, but for now even reaching top 8-6 would be an amazing achievement for a region that only has an underground scene and nothing more.

as a BIG fan I agree with this mentality but mostly because BIG chokes 13-2 halfs in CS sometimes KEKW

I'm gonna honest with you I thought that Maru looked better stratwise than DK did. I think Maru has a better chance than DK does for a lower bracket run just because I feel like that Maru had the way tougher opponent than DK had in the first series.

He would be on loan says the article: https://dotesports.com/valorant/news/sources-russ-to-step-down-from-guild-for-vct-emea-lcq-twisten-a-possible-replacement
Also he extended his contract with BIG last week https://twitter.com/TwistenVAL/status/1549853057298604034?t=UjVDQB038Obxj4LAMCXEbA&s=19 so probably just a loan that goes till Champions or something like that

It's 50/50 with them either they roll East Asia LCQ or get stomped.
Scrim results are not easy to translate into officials.
They are stomping a lot of good teams in practice from what goes around and should still be a team to look out for, maybe not a straight up favorite but a dark horse.

they can't dude they were not allowed because of covid those were real rules. tf

posted 2 months ago

you mean an arena filled with 20k people all using thunder sticks to make up for a fact that they are not allowed to be screaming are not loud at all? You guys can't be this delusional right?

What is even the point for this thread, are people just wanting to spread negativity for no reason?

posted 2 months ago

you are just a lousy man trying to put the culture of other nations down, conventietly ignoring that there were rules set on that place and spreading negativity for no reason. Get back on earth on man, denmark is still a shitty place for Valorant because there is no fanbase (looking at all the seats that were not filled in the matches) the only reason it was picked was for the availability for visas in that country.

posted 2 months ago

you guys are fucking weird man, the audience was insanely loud those thundersticks are no joke at all. People also always try to ignore the fact that JP has rules for covid like that you can't yell at all. Get the negative shit out here and just enjoy the fact that the soundproduction of riot makes it louder than it actually is.

rare styling W

Also every region should just have more spots, 12 spots for an international is a joke and there should be always at least 16 for future events. Also "minor" regions like BR/Lat/JP have so much potential and could give way more viewership in the future if supported correctly than NA or EMEA teams would in this game.

"For korean scene and improvement as a region.
Some of good korean teams should have scrims each other. It is enough for not doing it after checking bracket. This is a system how NA and EU can be improved as a region. I know KR has so much potential to be a top level in the world" - Autumn

Man is speaking facts, also just sad that the KR teams are not scrimming each other.

It is just a team diff tbh, I would rate Meteor higher than Rb because the support is weaker for him. Also Ssun owns Rb everyday of the week.

don't steal talent from teams that have really good potential lol, there are so many good fa's in Korea that they could snatch up fast.

I would just straight up change one or two of their players for complete new ones, they need new raw talent that doesn't crumble immediatly when they face pressure.

nah I understood it but the sentence was just wrong by itselfs lmao, I just wanted to clarify that

posted 2 months ago

I mean that is just not true considering there will be a crowd in Champions.

posted 2 months ago

but yeah they lack confidence and the mentality for a Masters or Champions winner. They need now a psychologist and another analyst for general gameplans, midrounding that would help immensely and last for sure a different player lineup, I think this is the moment where you change one of the players for better ones.

"If I had a nickel for every time DRX went 2-0 in groups, won their round 1 in playoffs in a 2-1 reverse sweep, lost 1-2 to Optic to drop to the lower bracket, and then got knocked out of the tournament by a team they already beat in groups, I'd have two nickels, which isn't a lot but it's fuckin absurd that it happened twice". - Nisham VLR user

he may does have bad mental, but he is just correct. DRX don't deserve to attend international tournaments with this lineup anymore, they need a psychologist and a big change otherwise Korea in Valorant is boomed.

posted 2 months ago

They don't want to, they are literally not playing together just going one by one and throwing this series. They don't deserve to be here anymore, this lineup doesn't deserve it. They need a psychologist and a change in this team.

posted 2 months ago

sadly they won't because they are playing so passive, Buzz literally did nothing so far.

I just don't believe in a team that immediatly does give up after a lost. Their mentality just is not made for a Masters/Chamipions winning team.

-Rb +Foxy9/Ssun.
Just put more guys on the roster that are more consistent.

It is just the same things all over again. Either they improve their mentality or straight up change players otherwise the results will be always the same.

posted 2 months ago

It is just hard to have faith in DRX man, always when they have the chance to make an incredible run they decide to fall apart. Like they dominated Optic in the first map but then somehow crumble immediately afterwards, it happens so much in the international stage. They show they could be a top 3 team in the world and then just explode into pieces. Rb and Buzz were super disappointing in the last map especially Buzz because it was way more unexpected that he would be the underperforming guy.

FPX probably wins 2-1 or 2-0 because the mentality of DRX is probably the weakest in the tournament right now.

With how established they were in APAC for a decent time, I actually thought they had enough points alone from stage 1. Kinda sad tbh that they don't, they kinda fell off but at least there are other teams that could make a name for themselves instead.

posted 2 months ago

You are actually right. I forgot that they didn't have enough points for some reason I thought they had enough lmao.
nvm then count them out KEKW

posted 2 months ago

But you forget Zeta,

never count out a Zeta even tho they lost against NTH in their own finals, the quality of players are still absolute insane and they could damage again. They were just quite unfortunate that the off day they had was exactly on that grandfinals day were NTH was hitting every shot. They are still a top team that could do insane damage especially now when they are JP's only hope again and have the motivation to improve themselves.

There also are two other asian teams qualifying in the APAC N LCQ and APAC S LCQ, some of those teams are potentially as good or most probably better than Xerxia at least.
In APAC N you have 3 KR teams Maru Gaming, DWG and Ons, the last two are currently in a rebuilding phase and trying to build another super team in KR. Those teams are not bad at all with the only problem they ever had faced being DRX and not being able to ever beat them to qualify for an international event.
For the JP representatives in that LCQ you get NTH, CR and Reject all teams that showcased to have good potential especially with NTH who have good firepower that needs fine-tuning in strats and comps.
As the Chinese representative you have Kone and EDG both teams that were playing most of the time in the depths of the underground scene in China. Although they never officially played against international teams, they are both regular scrims partners for the top teams in Asia. Most known being EDG who are said to be scrim demons beating and stomping top teams like Bleed in practice. Although they seem to be tactically behind, the players themselves are no weaker than top tier teams Life and Zmj notably aimgods who can and will destroy teams.

For APAC S you have teams like Bleed, TS, ONIC and many others. A team like Team Secret have been on the international stage before and they surely want to prove themselves again to reach further heights than they had accomplished in 2021 Champions.
Teams that could definitely catch somebody off guard if you are underestimating them too much.

In all this will be the event that has the highest probability ever to get an Asian winner with six potentially insane teams that have all a chance to make a good run for Champions.

posted 2 months ago

There shouldn't be automatic spots anyways if you just have more teams, I really don't get why Riot decreased spots after Champions
I get you tho, It is reasonable but yeah it all depends on Riot tbf.

I'm just lucky that I can ask somebody who works with a top team in that regard OMEGALUL
It just gives you a lot of insight in the roster of teams and how they play in scrims currently.

They are good, but they put themselves just not in a good spotlight KEKW
I would have liked it if Pyth and Ardis would have met again. Which was possible if they don't throw, it is what it is tho :/
the team is also very likely to make franchising from what I have heard so far.

True

posted 2 months ago

Bleed and yes they are still top 4, guys would have made Masters if they don't throw a 12-8 against Xerxia lol.

posted 2 months ago

They beat a top 4 Apac team harder in scrims than DRX did (actually stomped them) and that particular team beat DWG pretty easily in scrims themselves. I am just going from scrims in that regard, they are also known aim demons with players who look very insane.

scrims are always not super realiable but you can go with them if you have the same GMB and FPX copium in that regard, insane at scrims might be actually crazy in officials.
I'm taking my chances could be also super wrong.

posted 2 months ago

I would put Ons with the rumored eKo and Foxy trials together with EDG and NTH above them. They are a lot of other decent teams in that LCQ, who knows how it well play out? But for now I am actually more hyped for this LCQ than the APAC south one

posted 2 months ago

Why are people just not positive for once?
How about we give every region just another spot, make the future events with 16-24 teams instead of just 12. Instead of shitting on a another region and giving them less chances we give every region more chances no matter how "bad" they are.

posted 2 months ago

True, he was very insane and looked like one of the best players in JP, he had over 300 acs against Zeta in the qualifier game. This would maybe make for a another potential super team in KR.

Hard to say the teams at the east LCQ are all not really super bad.

  • On paper they have a lot of firepower but I really am not sure if they beat teams like EDG who are known scrim demons with even more firepower than them I would take Life and Zmj over Allow and Lakia every day of the week.
  • There are also the other JP teams who are consistently improving right now, even now I would say that NTH is better on paper than them, Reject are super weird and play crazy shit and CR are also a team just existing.

They have a chance but if they don't improve immensely it will be super hard for them considering how they lost against Maru and that team is also present in LCQ.

Xerxia looked more shaky then FPX did with a sub, FPX definitely would have won against Xerxia if they had played again.

posted 2 months ago

Val has a higher chance with how big Tencent is, but it really takes a lot of time even with them supporting it. What is kinda interesting is that the mobile version of Valorant has already been released in China and the PC version not. Who knows how East LCQ plays out if isn't relreased in time, maybe JP and KR get another slot and play without the chinese teams.
