I would hope that they have some sort of structured tier 2 scene to keep the game as a whole alive in the pros. I actually like the idea of having a few extra slots for teams that can promote or relegate through a VRL style league to be in tier 1.

Once the game fully releases in China and if the region as a whole can prove to be competitive internationally, I'd agree with it. Giving them 1 towards masters would be a good start but I think that'll only happen if EDG or KONE make champions.

Lets not get too political here, every other region that gets more than one slot has proven to have multiple international caliber teams, so thats why they have as many slots as they do.

2-1, if Guard keep their form up, they win. But if they get sudden PTSD from offbrand NA PRX then they could get beat by FaZe. Should be a banger regardless

Not a Guard flair but they're my 2nd fav team in NA. Glad they're back in Stage 1 form.

Split was honestly a mid tier map for me, long term idk if I like Pearl more or not yet, im at like 60% outta 5 ranked games (had it 3 more times but dodges from ppl) and thats the same as my Split record.

Haven i agree is more annoying now as retake simulator im at like 30% WR.

Split objectively needed the most work, so it made sense for it to be rotated out.

Only map that was decisive was Bind, 100T still gonna lose to FaZe bro.

He's relatively new to KAYO in officials, so I think it'll take some time to get better with it.

top 3-5 for sure

welcome to VLR. Braindead takes everywhere, most people with obvious dogshit takes are baiters. Anyone that tries to argue about regional supremacy 9/10 times is the same dozen or so idiots that fall into that category.

posted 4 days ago

Thats also true, until 100T with Derrek makes an international we can't rlly call that either. But yeah, he's top 5 in NA

posted 4 days ago

Too early to tell, everyones gonna have bias, the only objective answer to that will be after the Finale.

Power ranking wise, I'd say FaZe after being top 3 and then The Guard if they keep their Stage 1 form are the best two

Only real answer to worst 2 is SEN and C9 Because they were garbo in Stage 2 although alot of those hinge off roster changes, and while SEN just had another 2 roster changes and looked immediately better, they still might be the worst in LCQ, same with C9 as theyve had more time with Curry but today will see if they've gotten better when they play SR

SR, EG, NRG, 100T can all be ranked 3-6 in any order.

Again this is just my opinionated take.

In NA, potentially
Him, Eeiu, and Crashies are all really good Fade players.

ITW Shao, Leo, Zest, Enzo, Sacy, Stax easily all also outclass Derrek. Not to mention every other masters initiator may or may not be above him.

Still an insane dude don't get me wrong but def not the best fade.

im from detroit my favorite team is NRG

fr bro, like they may not be the best team in NA but I really fw them (flair)

Other good teams imo in terms of just being likeable in NA are SR, V1, EG

NRG
not huge clown fanbase
very loveable players (s0m is a w streamer)
they may give you heart attacks though when they play

But what Styling said

posted 4 days ago

it is still too early to call ggs but i dont think anyones saying its a 2-0 for NRG yet. Both teams are really competitive which, by trend of LCQ thus far, we get 3 maps and 2 OTs

Oh I'm not baiting, its just imo yeah TSM are ass but at the same time, theyre still well above most of NA's Tier 2. Like they fall into that top 15 in NA overall which is why i say theyre like tier 1.5.

Not making playoffs means that by your standard, V1, PKS, Ghost, SEN, and TGRD are all Tier 2 as well for not making LCQ or playoffs Stage 2.

I just can't think of many IGLs that are worse than Shahz

posted 5 days ago

well my pickems are safe

posted 5 days ago

TSM still technically counts as Tier 1 Valo as of Stage 2. Imo theyre Tier 1.5

posted 5 days ago

subroza maybe in Tier 1 NA

in LCQ maybe DazzLe, he's decent but he's not better in any realistic category compared to Valyn, Vanity, Hazed, Stellar, Boostio, and whoevers FaZes IGL, idk who replaced Poach in that role.

posted 5 days ago

Zellsis best player on SEN wdym?

posted 5 days ago

TenZ can be really inconsistent but he's still a tier 1 player.
Shahz used to be known as a fragging IGL, he's fallen off in both regards
Shroud as much as I love him isn't tier 1 valo pro, granted he's fresh out of retirement but he's shown some flashes.

But I agree Zellsis and Dapr are easily solid tier 1 players, and the former was insane on V1

I HECKIN LOVE VALYN

thats twice now he's gone insane. Love to see the fragging IGL
