It may not be a 1:1 comparison, but you can look at the red scare during the cold war, and it's basically as 1:1 as you can get. The point is that the dominant social power will try to suppress anything that challenges the narrative. It doesn't make it any more right or wrong; it just happens to be a fact of human nature.

I might be misremembering, but I thought riot wanted all teams in the league to have a gc and academy roster. Wonder who Sen, 100t, and nrg will pick up.

If you go by having the best team, yes, but I don't think the rest of the region is comparable in strength. Hope Loud winning champs can improve the strength of the Brazilian/SA scene as a whole. Would be nice to see.

So happy for them, and glad to see this team that has improved so much since masters win. Definitely deserved.

Tbf, I think there is a little more to consider than his choice considering the fact that he represents a company and org. If he wants to hang out with Tate in private, don't care. But when he's creating negative pr for his company, I feel like employees and affected people have a right to be annoyed.

I don’t know. Optic map pool looks really bad right now. A lot of optic’s best maps, drx is also good at.

I want to cry every time optic doesn’t ban breeze. It feels like their worst map that they just refuse to not play.

I hadn't watched anime in a long time, but I watched this show, and it was pretty good. Glad it's getting continued.

I think it's more likely that a team will pick up the entire roster, and then make changes. The team has made a lot of progress on this iteration. I would say Ayrin if anyone is likely to go, although seeing him depph and bcj do well this tournament, I hope he doesn't.

I don't think you can fault someone for taking advantage of a system like this. It's in the rules that everyone agrees to by competing, and XSET wasn't the one who initiated it. I don't think I could honestly tell a group of players that they shouldn't take an arguably deserved second chance at winning the biggest tournament they've ever competed in.

Nah, Cypher cam was an intentionally abused bug. KJ turret was an unfortunate scenario, not the same.

posted 1 week ago

What ended up happening was probably the best scenario that could've happened given the whole situation. XSET got their replay after being arguably screwed out a close round, and FPX got to prove they were still the better team. There's no info other than someone's opinion that XSET asked for the replay, I think it's fine for the FPX players to feel a little animosity because of the situation, but you shouldn't shit talk the players unless you know that they asked for the replay.

I believe it was like that on the Loud optic zeta game as well. Actually insane to me that it's still happening like 3 days later.

That animation looked so bad. Is the story good or something?

posted 3 weeks ago

Tbf, a lot of people were saying that. They had more of a point when running chamber on like 75% of maps was almost required. Will has always been pretty good, just sadge for him that he couldn't fit well into the chamber meta.

posted 3 weeks ago

Probably just picked up after a dedicated duelist, and they decided to off role him.

posted 3 weeks ago

It’s crazy how good he looked on jet considering how much of KJ/chamber he’s been playing recently. I know he Maine Jett in the past, but this was kinda absurd.

I can’t remember if there was anything bad with it like messaging a minor, but I just think he had some really embarrassing logs leaked https://twitter.com/wisteriaval/status/1526317417483452426?s=21&t=Z2QIlf0g6ag1z9DXG1nxdw

I don’t follow him, but I think most people say that he can only play cypher. I didn’t watch enough 100T or faze when he was on, but I remember him playing KJ as well.

Surprised people don’t talk about this guy more. In most games at champs last year it felt like sometimes he was the only thing keeping Kru back from winning, but I feel like he’s actually been pretty good this year, a really good improvement.

Idk bro, if a controversial figure is hurting your bottom line I think it’s really hard that they should keep them on their platform for the sake of some moralizing freedom of speech.

Going from a team that imploded in groups, literally going through 2 rosters to placing respectively in challengers 2, then winning lcq is actually a really good success story. Anything from here is just bonus.

Late reply, but it isn’t a reference to anything. Just know that the internet tends to jump to conclusions. In the case of Frank Sinatra, there was a recording that made it look pretty bad for him. In this case there was screenshots so removed from context on both sides that you can’t trust either.

Moral of the story, if anyone post screenshots without posting the entire log, be skeptical of it.

posted 1 month ago

I think something people aren’t mentioning is the general lack of hyping anything up that isn’t masters. Iirc they did a series of videos on NA talent like subroza and Marved( I think) to hype up challengers 2, but that’s normally the only thing I see. For masters, they put out some pretty sick videos that tease the event and the players attending that generally raises my interest in watching the events.

Also the casting can kinda suck. I love my boy riv, but sometimes it feels like he doesn’t really understand some of the things the pros do.

I don’t really watch any csgo, but it seems that since the game has been a thing for so much longer you have “storylines” that have kinda formed. I.e. s1mple was widely considered the best player but had never won a major, so when we won one, there was a lot more hype. I think Karrigan also had a similar situation.

posted 1 month ago

This story is actually kinda crazy. Both parties screenshots make the other look pretty bad. I’m sure people won’t jump to conclusions and assign one party or the other blame without waiting for something other than screenshots attacking the others character to come up.

Anyone in high school will hate me for this but catcher in the rye is actually a great book and severely underrated.

Alchemist by Paulo Coelho was good.

I just bought Drive My Car by Haruki Murakami after watching the movie. Haven’t gotten far enough in the story to give a recommendation, but the movie was great.

One is another better than the other. There’s tv shows that are better than anime, and then are some anime that are better than tv shows. With both it feels like you have to wade through 20 shit shows to find 1 or 2 good ones.

However, weebs argue over which 14 year old girl is the hottest, so tv > anime.

Play with someone else, two people with coordination can do pretty well even if the rest of the team isn’t on the same page 100% of the time.

Possibly, the competition hasn’t been too strong so far imo. Reject is not known for their fracture. EDG’s matches so far has been dominating on fracture and then being much closer on the rest. NTH fracture is pretty good. Could be a lot closer if NTH don’t ban fracture. Even though NTH is one of my favorite teams, still hope EDG wins for the story.
