1 2 3 4 •• 7
  1. FNC (although of course we've always said this until the LANs)
  2. LOUD
  3. C9 (assuming yay and trent/zekken. I think C9 are a little worse than the other two though, unless Xeppaa returns to 2021 LCQ form)

Obviously it will depend a lot on team's structure, but on paper these rosters look kind of nuts.

I mean you said it, he's been the best player for all of 2022 and that's how he's hyped. Pretty reasonably rated.

Mark my words, it will be a 3-0 LOUD, 3-1 max if yay drops 30. LOUD have two bans, it would be impossible for LOUD to lose.

Victor << aspas
yay > Less
Marved << pancada
crashies = sacy
FNS < saadhak

GGs, congrats Brazil, well deserved.

LOUD 3-0, two map bans is just too much for Optic to win. Congrats on Champions, well deserved

DRX will recover, up 7-5 and now they go onto defense, after they win Fracture its Ascent and Haven. There's no way Optic win either map, DRX is just too good.

Man has won 3 rounds now for DRX singlehandedly. Not trying to discredit them, but holy shit Mako is popping off

Loud and Optic are friends outside of the game, both nice teams outside of the server and it's good to see both doing well. Same with DRX, my favorite 3 teams are in top 3 rn :)

I don't even mind that Optic lost today, just so happy FPX is finally out of the tournament. Never been a team in valorant I disliked more.

Today will be a sad day, Optic and DRX will lose 0-2 to LOUD and FPX. EMEA and Brazil just solos Floptic and ChokeRX, not even trying to jinx.

posted 2 weeks ago

There's just no way DRX and XSET can recover from today's games, EMEA is gonna stomp them both 2-0. Not even jinxing, just sad facts

Are they really that bad? They seem fine to me

posted 3 weeks ago

I just think that realistically some of these picks might be underdogs but I feel like PRX is very likely to lose to TL anyways with the way they have been playing, FPX played KRU close and I think KRU have it in the rematch, and I feel like LOUD are going to get upset in some stupid way again...

TL 2-1
ZETA 2-1
KRU 2-1
100T 2-1 (could see FNC 2-1 here)

What are your predictions?

Couldn't watch the game, please TL;DR

posted 4 weeks ago

I think 100T has a pretty solid pearl although Optic looked a bit better, Fnatic's comp pretty much says it all...

I'll be rooting for Optic, just unfortunate that Fnatic wins the whole event

Fnatic

I know flag/flair and all but FPX is probably the most well-rounded team to win an event, all of their players are so good so it makes sense that none of them are super high up. What other team would have 3/7 of their players in the top 7 worldwide?

Just saw that they crushed On Slayers, is China the future of valorant or what's going on? Can someone give me a recap?

posted 1 month ago

So if you number the teams from 1 through 8, then for each match, you can either choose the lower number team to win or the higher number team to win, so there are two choices you can make per match. Since there are 14 matches, you would need 2^14=16384 pickems to account for each bracket once.

There's still a correlation between scrim and match results; teams that do very well in scrims have usually performed in matches later.

GMB: Used to be THE scrim demons back in Masters 2, won M3 Berlin and placed 2nd at Champions.
ENVY/OpTic: Were always known as a scrim team in NA even in the First Strike days, 3 top 3 finishes and a win so far.
Acend: iirc the coach posted some scrim stats and they performed very well in scrims, won Champions.
KRU: Also known as a scrim team (?) at least during Champions and maybe M3, top 4 at Champions.
Leviatan: I remember there was someone who said Leviatan was the strongest team they scrimmed and some players predicting them to win over DRX (I think it was Acend), beat XSET and played very close games against DRX and FNC.
FPX: Yay in Masters 1 said that FPX was the strongest team in scrims, won Copenhagen.

C9 and Ghost were also scrim teams iirc that popped off in matches later on

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.
