Maybe, but we're seeing international signings all over APAC right now. You can't be suggesting that East Asians don't speak English.

It will, how dumb is it that orgs have to scurry at this forum's convenience. They will continue scouting and bargaining until the deadline comes, and hopefully so. APAC orgs will need all the time they have to figure out their rosters.

Well, it's legal enough for FGC Invis to attract most top tier CN orgs. I can understand viewership could be fucked if the general populace is not playing the game, but the players are good.

Even this year they secured the LCQ slot. APAC will be much less competitive without them imo.

On second thought, KR orgs can sign at least some of them, right ? GenG and T1 have yet to sign anyone.

The CN scene has huge potential, will Riot be holding open Invivationals for them like this year ?

If so, that's a fat waste. Tier 1 Leagues always create a scrim bubble, outsiders can almost never compete.

Just a view bait by Riot, this shit is scripted, it's gonna go to 5 games, Optic will win anyways.

Eco aces are just travesties. It's not really worth hyping, especially when you have access to a few backs and can just spray away.

Some aces though, are really fucking bonkers.

Get off 'my' dick is different.

To get off someone's dick means to stop sucking up to someone. It's used to call out disingenuous / disproportionate praise for someone.

Now, surely if you refer to yourself, people would assume a different meaning from the context. Words like 'dick' and 'fuck' nowadays have very derivative meanings. If you really spend braincells browsing 'urban dictionary', you can never spend emough.

Getting off one's ass and getting off one's dick are different.

Might even be a hot take with all the NA hate around here, but NA is not bad at all. If they condense their talents into a few competent rosters (franchising next year), they might give EMEA a run for their money. NA LCQ has been super close so far.

posted 3 months ago

Same people who think Tenz still has a high 'ceiling'. It was the first Master, we had fond memory of it, let it be.

Again, not saying that Tenz and Lakia are washed, simply that we expect too much of them.

Slots allocated beginning of year. Riot probably didn't expect regions to be this close in power level, so they tried to pander to SA because their CSGO was half-decent.

Pls don't sneak india in there, it's not even a proper region. It's like TWHK and VN, literally only there for representation. Gets raped everytime.

Fair game to FPX. Super salty that PRX elected to go for this dogshit novelty comp, but what's done is done, hopefully they learn to a play proper comp next time.

Just a matter of form. Previously, you can argue the same for APAC, yet they are getting to finals this time.

SA also flopped Master 2 Berlin last year, every single NA seed placed better than them.

The real reason is that Riot thought BR has the potential to produce a contender, due to their FPS foundations in CSGO. Turns out Riot doesn't have to pander so hard after all, regions are very balanced in this game.

BR/Latam has less than 1/3 the playerbase of EMEA, even putting the NA question aside, they don't deserve more seeds than EMEA, period.

posted 4 months ago

APAC here means the entirety of Asia. You do know how large the whole region is, right ? If China starts playing this game probably, they alone will probably get 3 seeds.

posted 4 months ago

They combined East Asia and APAC LCQ last year, but this year China is joining. It's fair to give them a more manageable chance at least.

Don't know much about their level, but KR or JP will probably still get the slot.

posted 4 months ago

FPX has just returned to form. At their peak, FPX is basically the best team EMEA has produced (seeing how the sport is constantly improving), and they've just beaten FNC to prove it.

Saying that Optic loses to FPX because of mental is super dumb. There might be some stylistic reasons here and there, but Optic lost because they were the worse team (at least on the day), period.

posted 4 months ago

Stems from the fact BR is basically the last region playing CSGO other than EU/CIS.

Riot was trying to promote it there because BR was not up to expectations last champions. They wanted to have a contender from there, judging from its hypothetical potential.

Turns out Riot doesn't have to try so much after all. Regions are quite balanced in VLR. South America, as of now, deserves 3 seeds at best imo.

posted 4 months ago

It's a bit disingenuous to argue against NA's third seed. They have won a few Masters thus far, and is clearly a frontrunner. Even APAC has 3 seeds.

The obvious place to cut 1 seed from is LATAM/BR LCQ. There's no reason why South America should have 4 seeds in total (other than Riot wanting to pander).

Are players sabotaging the gears ? Why the fuck are there so many tech pauses in Valorant ?

Ange1 is literally dogshit, a huge liability for FPX. Dude has shit for aims but fancies himself a karrigan.

FNS is also shit, but at least he knows he's shit, so he doesn't try to match the enemy's picks. Ange1 will ego it and leave the team to 4v5 everytime.

posted 4 months ago

As a neutral, I'd like FPX to squeeze through for narrative reasons. They are probably the most unfortunate team both Masters.

They shoot bears, not school kids. Definitely better practice than in burgerland.
