anyone know what a lemming is?

Just checking opinions... I get T1 and SEN losing, some might have predicted those but V1? It seems like the notion of "favorites" just sort of doesn't fit for this game a lot of the time.

Any opinions on why matches are so unpredictable at this level?

C9W face DarkZero if they win this, right? gl to them, at least they'll have made top 32

yes, playing ranked valorant for at least 6 figures salary plus twitch earnings is a horrible job. which reality are you currently living in and how can i go there?

that's true. if you meant that acend are 2021 world champions and optic are not, then you're right. but optic just won the title of 2022 best team in the world until someone takes it. which title do you think matters most? champions is a word, don't dwell on semantics.

yes, that was a troll question. bait, actually. what evidence do you have that current acend is best in the world? after failing to qualify for masters and replacing two players, what makes you think current acend is best in the world?

i left one out. do you think world champion means best in the world? if not, the title is meaningless.

being EMEA no 1 seed loses weight considering the EMEA representatives went 7-11 in masters

so how do you define world champion? do they have to win champions? if so, do you think the team who won champions is the best in the world? if yes, i guess you think acend is still world champion despite dropping 2/5 players and not qualifying for masters?

For each of the remaining teams, imagine they find themselves in the Grand Finals. Which team do you think would be a nightmare stylistically for them? For example, PRX are probably the most aggressive team still in the competition. Of the remaining teams, who would counter them most effectively? Same question for each of the other remaining teams (DRX, G2, LOUD, OPTIC, PRX, ZETA).

Pick a team. Who counters them best?

Bagels and donuts aren't even the same sort of food. One is awesome by itself, with many different toppings, or in a sandwich. The other is a weird breakfast desert. But yeah, bagels > donuts all day, every day.

this is the only time i've seen anyone get a perfect pickems on this site going into finals, but apparently 6 people picked perfectly this time

here's to hoping SirMar wins it all, since they're the only one to not pick AEC to place perfectly on this pickem

nothing against AEC ofc, just rooting for the underdog and the singular perfect pickem

fair enough. i didn't mean to imply that the game doesn't matter. i suggested that competitors enjoy competing against the best and that no one likes winning against bad competition. the latter won't be a problem tomorrow since they're both great teams.

Envy already beat both of their NA competitors for the crown. They may have entered as 3rd seed, but they've made it clear that they're NA #1 in this tournament. It'll be a good game, but regardless of who wins, the 3rd seed things is irrelevant at this point.

VS and G2 are good, but so are 100t and sen. this is obvious bait, but you should acknowledge the quality of your opponents. after all, who cares about winning if the competition is shit?

Thanks! I had a good time reviewing all the matches to come up with a ranking. Glad to see I wasn't too off base.

I thought it would be fun to rank the teams based on performance at Berlin so far. I’ve included what I think is each team’s best win (if they had one). This is just my opinion and just for fun. Respect to all teams, it’s been fun to watch.

  1. 100T -- (3-0; best W vs GMB/ACE)

  2. Gambit -- (2-1; best W vs VS)

  3. Envy -- (3-0; best W vs SEN)

  4. G2 -- (4-1; best W vs SEN)

  5. Vision Strikers -- (2-1; best W vs ACE)

  6. Sentinels -- (3-2; best W vs G2)

  7. Acend -- (2-2; best W vs SMBx2)

  8. KRU -- (2-2; best W vs VK)

  9. SMB -- (1-2; best W vs PRX)

  10. Vivo Keyd -- (1-2; best W vs ZETA)

  11. Crazy Raccoon -- (1-2; best W vs HL)

  12. F4Q -- (0-4; Lx2 SEN/G2)

  13. Paper Rex -- (0-2 L VS/SMB)

  14. Zeta -- (0-2; L KRU/VK)

  15. Havan Liberty -- (0-2; L CR/100T)

What’s your ranking?
