NIP is kind of a yikes, I think everyone in the American league can agree.

G2 can literally sign whoever to their roster, maybe they get Optic idfk. But their move isn't confirmed yet either.

NRG have a huge financial background, owned by companies that own multiple top esport and traditional sport franchises, dominant in OWL, so they were always a contender to get in as they're a huge org. Rosters don't mean shit as rostermania is coming around.

Evil Geniuses are albeit not as large of an org as TSM and T1 but the other two have spotty records in terms of management, so EG would be a more stable org as they've been around forever in the sport. Probably just a reliable pick. Same thing regarding roster as mentioned in NRG.

Currently reported league is this:

100T
C9 - confirmed by dotesports
EG
FURIA
KRU - this is also a given
LOUD - this is a given
NIP
NRG - confirmed by dotesports
SEN - confirmed by dotesports
+1 (G2/T1/LEV)

3 BR confirmed
5-6 NA
1-2 LATAM
these are dependent between LEV, and whatever other team because G2 could pick up any roster if they make NA, same with T1 ig?

meh. rip jingg ult but some of those corners did need to get changed.

Pretty sure Import rules are for outside of their league region.
aka Americas, EMEA, Pacific. Anything within those regions is fair game so seeing a full mixed roster of countries for say NA, LATAM, BR or KR, JP, SEA would be fair game

as an NRG fan, gotta say that their roster very likely gets torn apart, Eeiu is their best player on a consistent basis. Tex and S0m who were their "stars" in stage 2 are inconsistent at best, and bad in their roles at worst. Move s0m to CC and drop Tex.

Considering teams like XSET, FaZe, EG, SR all basically getting shafted I can see them dropping everyone even.
-Hazed + Zander/Dephh/Supamen
-Tex + Bdog/Cryo/Dicey
-Ethan + BCJ
-S0m + Zekken

Honest hopium here from me.

C9 I can see them dropping Curry and maybe Mitch, Chaos core isn't going anywhere
SEN needa drop like everyone but TenZ and Dapr, depending on Zellsis or not.

Dephh is a far better caller than Shahz

a few vocal idiots do per usual. But anyone with half a braincell knows its not gonna happen, 5-6 is realistic. American League slot distribution isn't a problem, Pacific looks like a bigger concern rn.

I don't think it either I'm just saying if Guard don't make it, and say TSM doesnt buy out optic, why not have TSM buy them out or something.

Personally I have Guard making the league so I'm just being a critic to your proposed roster cause to me it looks like a mess.

god alot of the dumber american vlr users are coming out and giving the rest of us a bad name.

Optic - no roster change is definitely believable, even if theyre bought out that core wont change
100T - while i feel like they could improve in some regards, I dont see them breaking up the roster they put alot of time into, although Cryo would def be my first choice, if not him then Bdog. So its acceptable

SEN - I feel like a Dapr/Zellsis would happen over say a Zekken/Zellsis just because Dapr has the flexibility and was already their senti/smoke player. Zellsis and Zekken basically play the same role, as for adding Supamen feels like a good W for them

C9 - They wouldn't drop leaf, they'd 100% keep the core of Vanity, Xeppaa, and Leaf. Either all go or none go I feel like. -Curry, Mitch very likely. JonahP and NeT feel like they'd be good pickups for them, but Guard are heavily in the running to also make it and that core likely wouldn't break up so a + Dicey + Ethan/Eeiu/Subroza as Initiator/Flex

TSM - Just buy out guard roster, although its basically a given that only maybe Subroza of the current TSM core would even be on the team still.

American Continents were called the New World for a reason. As we are the future, the oldy 1400 europeans called it that because they knew that one day in an anime csgo game the new world would own everybody yessir

Honestly I agree, would be alot smarter and simpler, but common rito L's so..

Just hopefully the rosters aren't scuffed if this does happen.

will be 14 within a few years standard.

Tier 2 will be fine with Challengers regional leagues and ascension tournaments.

facts, been looking forward to seeing the BR and LATAM teams play against NA regularly. Should only help everyone long term cause we boutta roll the europe and asia leagues.

posted 1 week ago

5 - 3 - 2 realistic

5 NA
100T
C9
Optic
TGRD
SEN

3 BR
Loud
Furia
GL/NIP/FLX

2 LATAM
KRU
LEV

posted 1 week ago

should be more like
3 KR (DRX, DWK, GenG/T1)
2 JP (ZETA, NTH/CR/FEN/REJ)
PRX
GE
1 OCE
TS
XER

SEA, OCE, JP, CN all getting shafted by this move if Korea is getting 5 slots. Although hopefully the pacific teams can mix in from other sub regions within the league. I.E. SEA players for a KR org. Otherwise the entire pacific league is kinda fucked.

FNC, Vitality, KOI, Karmine Corp all are also confirmed by Geddes and DotEsports

3-3 all time between the 2 teams.

Both have one trophy over the other.

posted 1 week ago

This here.

Brazil is (debateably) a 1 team region in the sense that only 1 team has actual international results, Loud is a top 2 in the Americas (tied with Optic in my book as their rivalry is 3-3 all time)

There won't be more spots for BR in the American league as franchising favors org stability from large "clout" orgs even. But we'll see, its just unlikely.

Well theres game changers and redbull tourney as riot events

Tier 2 tourneys will obv always be a thing and region dependent, but it should be interesting atleast in regards to what teams make it with rostermania around the corner

based take, but unfortunately for you. Region baiting bozos will not see it that way.

posted 1 week ago

Loud 3-1 imo, different metas so its really hard to compare the two teams unless we somehow see those two teams collide.

Loud have a far better balanced firepower team though.

posted 1 week ago

Pretty much because of Loud, even tho NIP atleast contributed 1 win to that total.

Glad to see that the region atleast showed up and kicked ass this year because having strong international competition is great for the longevity of the esport

posted 1 week ago

ng bro, theyre already happening. The amount of threads following LOUDs win were essentially EU frogs trying to dickride Brazil and throw shade at NA (some of it was justified because NA did the same following DRX beating FPX but EU still has trashed on brazil far more than NA has, as I believe NA and BR have a healthy rivalry outside of Zombs existence).|

Either way gg's to LOUD, they deserved it and its gonna be hype to see Sao Paulo with the defending champs, hoping the Optic Loud rivalry continues

Looking forward to the rivalry continuing between them and Optic next year.

Brazils always had alot of north americans respect because either the banger series that happen or just the fact that we're all "American". Its just bozos like Zombs
