1 2 3 4 •• 10

Honestly I think they should make it 16 teams with 4 NA teams, 3 EU, 2 BR, 1 JP, 1 KR, 1 SEA, 1 OCE, 1 LATAM, 1 TR, 1 CIS. Or Maybe you give 1 slot to OCE/SEA and give 2 to TR in this case but idk. The bigger the tournament is, the more likely an underdog wins, which are always the most memorable, but also the less inclusive or rewarding it is to make it there. 16 is a perfect number for a bracket and would allow for more regions to be better represented. Also maybe you could take away a NA slot and give another slot to TR in the scenario given but the NA scene is the biggest in terms of orgs and viewership and I have a bias towards more NA teams so idk. I'm assuming with 10 teams, they will have 2 groups of 5 play and then the top 2 teams from each group advance to a bracket which should be good as well.

100T, LG, GenG and NRG

I'm assuming this mean the 3 of them get signed to another org because there's no way they would let go of tex right?

FaZe 2-0. I think FaZe will win 1 map like 13-6 and then they will win 14-12 in OT on the other map.

How can you anti-strat against FaZe when they don't have strats?

I think NRG is a great team and in eSports that 100T is not in, I root for NRG so I am definitely not sleeping on them but I just think that Asuna is better than or at least on the same level as Android and that nitr0, Ethan, HiKo and Steel bring more firepower to 100T than s0m, daps, eeiu and shanks. If you look at 100T, there isn't really a weak point. There could be an argument for steel or HiKo but when you look at NRG, daps is the clear cut weak point and is the weakest player individually in this matchup, which I think gives 100T the edge in terms of firepower

supamen, c4Lypso, sharky and poach are all also FAs btw. Honestly sharky is the best jett available(no hate to dicey). Idk how c4Lypso has not been signed to a team yet. Go look at his stats from the last 90 days and tell me that he doesn't deserve at least a trial with a team. I understand that he has played a lot of tier 3 teams but putting up a 1.51 K.D over about 300 rounds on Reyna is insane and he was also amazing against the tier 1 teams when he was on Envy. Supamen is a good omen and brimstone but was underperforming at the end of his time with Dig. However, he can be an amazing player and has been in the past. Poach is a good igl and sentinel and made Andbox a better team despite bottom fragging. At the very least sharky deserves to get signed immediately and c4Lypso deserves a trial. Dicey, Brax and AZK all also deserve to be signed and Poach and Shinobi should at least be considered for a coaching role at the very least. Also supamen is a very capable omen who should be a top candidate if a team needs an omen or brim.

What I was trying to imply was that if he joins EG, than they would've dropped Potter, Clawdia and osias and he would be one of the replacements, maybe even alongside AZK. I also think that if he joins Col they will build a new roster around Brax and JonahP.

TenZ made C9 so much better... look at how much worse C9 has done since TenZ has been gone. Even though they have Leaf, who has played great, they have been so much worse and haven't won anything without TenZ. TenZ led every Ignition Series in ACS up until 1 of the final ones and C9 even placed top 3 in some of the Ignition Series tournaments with TenZ and also dominated the first First Strike open qualifier before falling off the face of the earth. Hell even look at how much worse relykS has been without TenZ. Don't try to push any narrative that TenZ didn't make his team better or that they were failing because TenZ wasn't a team player. If you surround a player with 4 mediocre players they aren't going to have much success against teams with 4 great players like Sen. I mean maybe I'm misinterpreting what you said and what you really meant to say was that TenZ wouldn't have made it if he was still competing because of his team so sorry I guess if that's what you meant.

ehh I don't really care about downfrags and upfrags. I would much rather have those people tell me what they disagree with or dislike about what I said but it doesn't matter.

  1. If/When TenZ comes back, he will likely still be under contract with C9
  2. If he isn't under contract with C9, an org already in Valorant will sign him immediately and he won't have to go through the process of playing with an Orgless roster. I guarantee you that teams like Complexity, EG, FaZe, NRG, T1, or even TSM would offer TenZ huge contracts if he was a Free Agent and he wouldn't have to prove his worth by joining a team of FAs.
    As for Brax, I can see him joining TSM, C9, SSG, Ghost, Beastcoast, EG or Col. If TSM continues to struggle, they should look to add a better sentinel player than Hazed and Brax is the best available. C9 should look to replace mitch, relykS and Vice. Let's be honest, they were only on the team because they were friends with TenZ. They're not bad but they're just mediocre and an org like C9 should look for better and Brax could be a candidate to replace Mitch/Vice as the team's cypher if they decide to drop the trio. SSG has failed to get results even with a solid trio of pr0phie, boostio and roca. Brax is a clear upgrade over sSef, would give a big boost to SSG's firepower and likely help them get some good results. I know Ghost's team is brand new and has been playing pretty good but Brax is once again a clear upgrade over payen, who I don't think is a very good player(for a pro at least). Brax would bring a lot of firepower to Ghost's team and would help out Nismo and wippie a lot. However, I think payen is the IGL so maybe it wouldn't be a good move. Beastcoast is trialing KOLER and has had some success but I think Brax is a better sentinel player than Koler and that Beastcoast could do even better with Brax. EG has been pretty bad. Aleksandar has definitely been the bright spot and Temperature has also been consistently good. Ohai, Potter and Clawdia have all played bad and should be replaced. Temperature can pretty much play every supportive agent pretty well so EG could sign Brax and move Temperature over to omen or sova. Complexity had a very strong duo of JonahP and Sharky but failed to put good pieces around them. Now Sharky is gone but at least they still have JonahP. Brax is a clear upgrade over agM and would give them another solid piece to build around. However, it is also very possible that Brax forms an Orgless roster and tries to find an Org that way.

Last time 100T kicked someone they signed a much better roster and won First Strike... I'm assuming you are talking about Dre but they only lost to him once and that was because Asuna thought it was nap time and he never really woke up after Ascent

posted 2 days ago

I would agree with them being on par but Asuna was playing like a top 3 player in the qualifiers for Challengers 2 so if he can return to that form, he will be better than Android. However, the last time these 2 faced off, in the qualifiers for Challengers 2, they went 6-6 against each other so I'm definitely excited to see them face off again.

posted 3 days ago

Not only is Steel the IGL like Cheasle said but he is also the sentinel... not to mention he is the best Killjoy in NA and still constantly was out fragging Dicey up until Challengers 2.

posted 3 days ago

NRG does not have more firepower than 100T. What are you talking about? Asuna, if he returns to form, is a top 5 player and is better than Android. Ethan had insane aim in cs, much better than anyone else in NA that switched over and can be the best player in Valorant with time. nitr0 is another top 10 player and is the best omen in NA, steel is the best killjoy and HiKo is a top 5 sova player. Compare that to NRG who has 1 top 10 player(Android). eeiu is great and all but can not compare in terms of firepower to nitr0, same goes for s0m compared to Ethan. Steel is clearly better than daps but you can say Shanks brings more firepower than HiKo. If 100T lose this it will be because Ethan is likely still getting used to Valorant and that nitr0 is getting used to his new role but NOT because NRG has more firepower, because they don't.

posted 3 days ago

As much as I think Dicey is a good player and has a lot of potential, he was clearly the weakest link. But, this move is not so much about dropping Dicey because he was bad but more so picking up Ethan because he was an insane cs pro that you cannot pass up on.

posted 3 days ago

Great move by 100T. Can't pass up on a talent like Ethan even if Dicey has been performing well recently. The only question is what role will Ethan play and will anyone else have to switch their roles? nitr0 is the best omen in NA, Steel is the best Killjoy in NA, HiKo and Sova seem like they were made for each other and Asuna is amazing on Reyna/Phoenix/Raze. I hope that Ethan will mostly play Raze with Asuna sticking to Phoenix/Reyna or even Ethan playing Jett, but not awping. However, I can also see Ethan playing omen and nitr0 moving over to Jett or sage or Ethan playing sage himself. I really hope that 100T keep nitr0 on Omen and that they have Ethan playing Raze but we will just have to see.

I mean Leaf and Autimatic were both doing great in cs before they switched as well. Autimatic was past in his prime and maybe we never got to see Leaf's prime in cs but still they were both great cs players as well

posted 3 days ago

I'm here. Dicey was amazing in Challengers 2 but this is a good move imo. I still think dicey has a lot of potential and is a great player but if someone of Ethan's caliber is available you can't pass up on the opportunity.

posted 3 days ago

This is just what people do. If a team loses or even if they win sometimes some people look at the scoreboard and cry for the team to remove whoever is on the bottom. This is just like how people wanted Dicey, Zombs, reltuC, Hazed and much more players. They don't care how good of a support player you are, they just look at the scoreboard and decide from that who's good or not

Oh shit mb I forgot that krea6on was on the omen and that luckeRRRR is on the breach.

Quick question: Who tf actually thinks calling eeiu aceu is funny? It got old like 3 months ago and is just annoying. It's even more annoying than chat spamming Roza Ult every time a Raze doesn't get a kill with their ult

He's fragging out but he's dying a lot. He died 22 times on Ascent out of 26 rounds.

Yeah that's why I put a ? next to his name but he's a good Breach when it comes to utility usage

This is a very even match but I'll say T1 take this 2-1 with how they have dominated so far in this qual. I understand that they've been dominating some pretty bad teams but I still think they'll win this.

As amazing as Penny is, he is very inconsistent so I think if V1 wants to win, Penny has to have a good game and Vanity has to continue playing as he has been. I'm actually going to say that V1 will win this 2-1. TSM has been down recently and I think if they things I mentioned above happen they should win since I'm expecting Vanity and Immi to have a good plan going into this game. But once again, Penny needs to be on top of his game if they want to make this a series.

I feel like they should switch it up more instead of just playing the 2 on jett. Poiz can play raze and xeta can play breach as well so maybe they can sometimes have xeta replace mitch as the breach and put poiz on jett or sometimes have xeta on jett and poiz replace relykS on raze. I think leaf is their best player so he should pretty much always be in but xeta has played omen in the past too so he could even sub in for leaf. And Vice is the IGL but, if they can replace him while having someone else step up as the IGL, they could put Mitch on killjoy, xeta on breach and poiz on jett. My point is that they have so many options with this 6 man roster and I really hope they don't waste it with just switching out poiz and xeta on jett.

They must've found a better replacement like maybe DavidP, ec1s(?) or someone like that or he could've just been toxic like HideBehind said

  1. OTW is a good team
  2. What Jommy05050 said: they literally just added Android and had to switch roles around.
    This team is incredibly talented with a top notch coach from CS. Once they find the right roles and Android gets used to the team, they should be a top 10 team.

If any NA org is looking to sign a team to enter into Valorant with, this would be it.

posted 5 days ago

It 100% was rushed. I think T1 is running out of patience since they were the first org with a team and they haven't won shit except for like Twitch Rivals... Also KOLER is on Beastcoast. Idk if I'm forgetting anyone that is better than Curry but I'm pretty sure he has been playing extremely well today

For everyone that didn't watch this... Rise was up 10-0... V1 won 13-11

Thanks. That's crazy tho since he was their best player...

It's not that surprising but still is pretty surprising. But DaHoonkaBhanKoloos has Andersin from the slimey boogermen, ScrewFace and Harmon who both played for MMG before MMG disbanded and they have Ange who played on Rise for a while. SSG still should've won but these aren't nobodies that they are playing against.

Once again, Kanpeki is the most underrated pro in NA and needs to get signed. Also where tf is Sharky? If Col were serious about Valorant, the right move would be to rebuild around JonahP and Sharky(and maybe Ohai), not to move JonahP to jett and drop Sharky(If they did drop him or something)

posted 5 days ago

RNG and EG are 2 big orgs... I would rather watch 1 big org's team destroy another big org's team than to watch a big org(T1) destroy some nobodies. Also wtf are they supposed to do just predict that RNG is going to 13-1 RNG?
