formerly known as Habib, played a bunch of t2 events, if I remember correctly this is his first shot under a signed roster

posted 1 day ago

Bro just give them time
Its their first day of competing in a completely new roster
They are all young and have an experienced IGL at the helm, they probably still need to figure out comps fully, iron out their better maps and so many more things.
You also got to see a single map and the stats of another so idk about giving verdicts so early on lmfao

Team full of players that are hungry for competing and winning, willing to put on the hours to get better at the game, hopefully T1 allows them to have time together cuz I think they can go far :) gl lads

I agree with the Steel part, its definitely reasonable if they pick him up
but S0m is great at controller agents, just ppl dont see it cuz they are used to watching him play duelist on stream. (To put it in context, Wedid swapped roles to sentinel to keep s0m on smokes)

yeah idk, berlin qualifiers were also played really late and I think riot only does it to accommodate for higher viewership w some EU viewers etc.

the tourney is played in da west so ig they are not as late where the players are + they wont play tomorrow since the lower part is played out

a lot, all good.

similar to the Gen G comp but with breach over idk what agent they had
brim smokes help deny info in certain areas of the map for a long time (halls is a good example) + viper for site execs
also that means 3 postplant mollys
idk about the breach enough though lmao

The team seems to have liked him, mada once tweeted he was confident Cooper could be a top player in the future :)

at the same time if u think of it, no group A team made semis

thats weak for an international lan tho, I love kru but they are a weaker team
theres kinda a top 8 (3 NA teams + 4 EMEA teams + VS) that are above the rest imo

posted 4 months ago

keep in mind we haven't seen xset for over a month tho, this is their first (or second?) big break since adding dephh and zekken

posted 4 months ago

I think the kayo should work well against gambit's defense since they like to play on site (similar to why it worked against xset), but I didnt watch the match lmao

posted 4 months ago

Not a hot take, definitely could go either way

posted 4 months ago

I mean, yes XSET can beat some of the teams in the event maybe, but if they dont qual they are not in the conversation. That's just how it works

posted 4 months ago

this also explains why nrg is a little higher as they are playing NSG events rn

posted 4 months ago

its elo based and the more matches u play the easier it is to be ranked higher. XSET was in a bad ranking even if they beat many teams above them in masters 2 (at this point they already made 2 challengers finals unlike many other teams etc.) Their rank became more accurate when they had a clean run to #2 seed in the masters 3 qualifier. (It basically took them beating SEN to get a good rank LMAO)

I think they can just commit to more defined roles, have one player commit to sova and they can be fine. The thing is every comp they run atm feels like they are sacrificing a player's comfort for the better of the rest of the team.

isn't it OG? correct me if wrong

posted 4 months ago

im actually surprised icebox was the weakest map for EG since they had some pretty cool strats last time I saw them play it

edit: typo OMEGALUL

AYRIN spoke about their own experience on a backchat a couple weeks ago. There are definitely some benefits, otherwise orgs wouldn't accommodate for it to happen

nice thread, thank you!

I watched a VKS game on bind where they just had saadhak fighting for hookah as brim against a breach and raze for 5 rounds straight. The only thing that still worries me about Brazil as a region is adaptability, I see that they are playing more tactically over time, but I am not sure if teams can adapt when their game plan starts failing. (It felt like only 1 round sacy tried to help saadhak but it wasn't good enough since saadhak still sat inside the breach stun, got tagged and spammed to death.)
Would you say your top 3 teams (HL, SH, Sharks) are doing more in that aspect? Otherwise I will still be worried for them when it comes to international play.

Tenz has much more brand value, has had more time under the spotlight, etc. Not comparable since cNed is much newer to the scene and stuff. I also don't know if any org would be willing to pay that much for a player in such a young scene

posted 5 months ago

I think you just have to say FPX due to their result in these playoffs :/ Sad to see because they have always looked good until they get close to tourney wins and then just dissipate

posted 5 months ago

I think SEN is too strong still, only teams that may beat them imo are G2 and Acend

posted 5 months ago

good job :)

just time out ppl off the forums since some of them live here lmfao

Every competitor needs to be confident wtf
how else would they get to the point they are in? Its also not overconfidence since he mentioned literally the spot they landed on, top 4.

posted 5 months ago

At least the top 4 teams were indeed the 4 top seeds from challengers 1, which shows that these teams can be consistent at the top places of events. Sadly 1 won't make Berlin

Envy has been historically good vs. XSET (XSET only beat them in a seeding game) but I want to call a 2-1 for XSET. I expect XSET to not allow yay to go off the way he did on Haven vs. Faze when they started winning attack rounds off him winning opening duels. GL to both teams

posted 5 months ago

bruh this is a cool match, and whoever wins goes up against ABX

posted 5 months ago

I think atm his twitter says something like "content for sentinels" so I dont think he's necessarily benched.

posted 5 months ago

Also I would say DZ and SQ deserve a spot in here instead of ex-Noble and ez5 maybe? idk

They've had good results over a longer period of time + been more dominant in T2 imo

posted 5 months ago

not really, C9 literally planted within the first 30 s of a round every time. We didnt really get to see anything from them

posted 5 months ago

Top 20 looking shaky atm, but I agree with like a top 6 teams being the ones you said
Outside of that I would say you cant rank ones over others that much. (For instance I would say KCP are 100% within the top 20 but I just dont know where)

posted 5 months ago

facts, but also NRG should still manage beating this team

posted 5 months ago

true, the only have lost to SQ recently and SQ looked rlly good even against SEN at the start of their series

I have quite literally never faced a cheater in val yet
I wish I had the same luck in MM lmfao

Wedid on viper was cool to watch cuz he would pull rounds by himself (for instance in XSET vs TSM when they were punching into T1) and xset's defense on A would pretty much depend on him taking all first contacts (both A main and mid splits) to help ayrin get value out of his KJ utility on site.
I love ur choices tho. Fun fact, Andersin was replaced by Wedid in the original roster that got picked up by XSET a couple weeks after that transfer.

posted 6 months ago

he is slept on for sure, hes played so many agents, switches roles from lurk to entry from map to map seamlessly, has IGL'd for the team before, etc.

posted 6 months ago

Not sure, but the location kinda screams "we want an audience"
I would expect at least a fraction of the capacity of the venue to be used for live audience

posted 6 months ago

you can trust Josh, he has brought up many teams from the T2 scene into a higher level, even competing in some of them himself. With players from his rosters early on in the scene now being signed to T1 orgs. What Firell said is also true, players will develop over time, for instance with s0m on the IGL role.

posted 6 months ago

yup, IGL change can be rlly harsh so we can't expect them to come out swinging off the bat, it will be a team that improves over time. The roster itself has insane firepower and from what I remember Wedid said s0m's IGLing is really good. Obviously s0m's perfomance will drop a bit as he picks up the role but over time we will see them just keep getting better.

posted 6 months ago

when envy looked stronger ppl did call him that, but since envy has been slightly more quiet, he has been as well
I do think he is one of the best sovas of the region no doubt tho

posted 6 months ago

thats actually pretty cool

Why are people writing books in this thread

SS have a scary roster, I hope they keep playing together cuz they definitely have the potential :)

I would love to see the run u are predicting for xset
