1) My main point in short was: EU+CIS=Europe (EU=/=Europe)
2) If regions were different then why does Riot allow any team to play in any group EU, CIS or TR if they really want to separate regions?

"CIS and Europe were two different regions and they are just combined to EMEA"
So you are saying Riot combined 3 regions into one region EMEA? Man you are confusing

Also yeah these are regions:

Also by riot: E in EMEA is Europe(EU,CIS,TR), MEA is basically MENA and they have separate qual:

But if EU=/=Europe is confusing for you I don't expect you to understand this.

-Student options doesn't tell how good subjects are taught.

-Award numbers is just dumb, how being best at sports shows how good you are at educating and if its only some math olympics there is no way to rank awards importance, is winning in one state/country is better than other? Also if you win in math it doesn't tell how good university is at biology. It can be used if its on same subject basis like best university at nuclear physics and use awards from math olympics, there are still some arguments against it but sure why not.
(these "Best University" ranking deffinetly don't do that)

-Graduate employment is just same as reputation, better reputation easier employment. Also if students decide to do their own thing after graduation like writing a book for a year before looking for job, it effects stats for that university.

Sure these are important things for students, but not for how well subject is taught

You can read on how they are ranked here

You can see that most rankings are flawed and also include stuff that shouldn't matter like:
Reputation, admissions, student options, award numbers, internationalization, graduate employment, industrial linkage, media mentions etc..
And yes some Universities boost their rankings by having diverse campus, especially in NA with then translate to world ranking.

Specialization expertise should be the only metric.

The subject has produced much debate about rankings' usefulness and accuracy. The expanding diversity in rating methodologies and accompanying criticisms of each indicate the lack of consensus in the field. Further, it seems possible to game the ranking systems through excessive self-citations or by researchers supporting each other in surveys

tbf ranking universities overall is stupid, they should be ranked on subject like best business university, best IT, best nuclear science etc. and EU has plenty of them.
Ranking universities on their ethnic diversity and how often they are mentioned in movies doesn't make sense.

"Europe and CIS are two different regions and both of them are part of EMEA"
So CIS is not in Europe, but in EMEA? so is CIS Middle East or Africa?
Or are you having NA brain moment and didn't read my thread? EU=/=Europe

Also Riot doesn't separate EMEA into EU, CIS and TR, because they want to make them different regions, they do this to separate groups into 3 so they wouldn't be to big. You can tell this because any teams can play in any group, That's why FPX play in EU or Arbalest(EU) played in TR, Riot even said there are no rules against playing in other groups you can pick the one that's best for you (probably talking about ping) as EMEA is a single qual.

1) EU colleges are rarely free for US citizens
2) Most of EU citizens who go to US colleges, go there because they are usually free for them and "prestigious"
3) US colleges are very good at advertisement and more prestigious=/= better education
4) When you say NA colleges you just think about very top that are full of Europeans and Asians. Average college is a different story :)

It's not classified as continent, rather continental area or a land mass. Technically speaking it should be, but it isn't.

posted 4 days ago

So it seems NA brains are bad with geography and I have good education in geo (elementary school EU), so I will teach you on how to get COPIUM and don't look stupid.

First lets go through basics:

Europe = continent.
NA = continent.
Asia = continent.
SA = continent.
EU = economic union across multiple continents. (European Union)
CIS = economic union across multiple continents. (Commonwealth of Independent States)
EMEA = Europe + Middle East + Africa (Middle East is not a continent its a region in Asia and Africa, CIS is part of Europe, TR is part of Middle East)

There are many unions you can find in Europe:

EU, CIS, EEU, CE, Eurozone, CTA, EUCU, BSEC, GUAM, CEFTA, NATO and more...

Some NA brain misconceptions:

"CIS is not in Europe": FALSE
"Ukraine is part of CIS": FALSE
"CIS is a continent": FALSE
"ex USSR countries are CIS": FALSE
"Eurasia is a continent": FALSE (yes some NA brain claimed this xd)
"Russia is not European": They are over 85% European.
"Russia is not in Europe": Its, even its government is located in Europe (note: they also have territories outside Europe)
"Gambit is not European": All players are born and live in Europe.

Countries you can claim are not in Europe but in...:

So many of you figured it out that part of Russia is not in Europe and now say Asia > NA > Europe, well there are more cases like that with European countries you might want to know.
Spain: Africa
Norway: Antarctica
France: SA, NA, Antarctica
UK: SA, Antarctica, NA
Netherlands: NA
Denmark: NA
(note: use this info carefully, everyone will understand you are on hard COPIUM)

NOW VERY INTERESTING PART:

You can see that many European countries are also in NA, many of them are in EU.
That means there is EU in NA, but no NA in EU. So don't forget, you can't say NA without EU :)

In short what we learned today:

EU is everywhere and so can't lose. EU > NA
Europe dominates Valorant.

Eurasia isn't classified as a continent you idiot, Russia spans across Eurasia land mass, do you have geography lessons in NA???
I recommend this to learn continents: https://online.seterra.com/en/vgp/3004

Also every single Gambit player was born and lives in Europe so unluko, better luck next time.

Edit: If France won would you call them SA as they have territory there? hard COPIUM brother :)

fpx is building something new also they are not even in LCQ, guild are solid tier 2 but would fail internationally, liquid on a good day might not be embarrassment.

I hope G2 will win LCQ, and if Gambit win Berlin Fnatic will get their shit together for Champs.

I got Gold 2 just because people throw games, I was D3 before

Who cares, why NA gets to claim continent not just US for example? So we will claim whole Europe to not just EU.

Canadians players > Americans players

nope, CIS isn't a region WITHIN EU, it's a region within Europe
CIS is like EU both are economical regions and both are in Europe

Or like why does GMB vs NV game decide if Fnatic will go to Champs or will they have to play LCQ, why should Fnatic even have a chance for direct ticket when they even failed to qual for EMEA

While there is no chance Gambit throws vs 100T again.

Yes, but if Gambit wins final, Fnatic will go also, but they don't deserve it :(

Would be nice if G2 won everything, then G2, ACE, GMB and LCQ spot, would be perfect.

What are they gonna do there? Go 13-0 every match????

PRX and Bern won same amount of points in Berlin, both came last.

G2 would qual over ACE if they had same amount of points, as G2 placed higher in Berlin with is more important

only way Fnatic can qual if Gambit win Berlin.
G2 needs to win vs Gambit to qual.

Berlin points > Iceland points
