Stop having double standards. If Optic did not have poor form, then Fnatic also did not have poor form. This is their normal form, we have seen countless times now that they add a new player, honeymoon for a couple of months, and then return to their normal level. The way they played in qualifiers was insane form, if they replicate in at Champions, I'll eat my words, but every time they make a roster change the same thing happens.
In my opinion, Optic played slightly worse than at Masters 1. Individually, Victor played worse and Optic threw many rounds through poor trades / 5v4s that I don't see M1 Optic losing. I don't think they changed their game plans that much, and Neon is kind of a one-trick agent that teams that are very experienced with can easily shut down; this is why Optic's Fracture looked worse and worse. People are just more used to playing against Neon now since so many teams run the Neon comps, and Optic just didn't adapt. I think M1 Optic without changing their gameplans would still lose to PRX and FPX right now, they just improved faster. Hopefully they can rebound for champs.
