two of the japanese desk / casters predded them
Hi guys, I'm the observer at the Asia Pacific LCQ. I wanted to express how honored I am to be the first blind observer at a VALORANT tournament in history. Thank you Riot for this amazing opportunity, and I'll try my best!!
API access to the match somehow i guess
i know platchat had an overlay thing for Copenhagen that did something similar
how can you write if you're deaf?????? literally fake...
if they qualify for champs their chances are 100% because that means RIOT 100% are rigging the fuck out of it
bro streamed 180 hours over the last 30 days, he's right at home
I think support agents (and utility in general) would've become more efficiently used, no matter what the meta was, in time: it's the nature of a competitive game.
bro why are you posting your comments in multiple threads
imo ONIC, BOOM, and BLEED all have consistently solid fundamentals. They fall apart in moments but that will happen to almost every LCQ team worldwide.
def agree about the international thing. I haven't seen a team at this event that I think would go far in Champs yet.
Viet teams have been getting better though? This was already established in last stage's playoffs, where Fancy did significantly better against teams like FW, Bleed, and Secret. Griffin is the real fluke team, they beat Gaimin Gladiators (only escaped playins due to a fluke win against PRX) and a MITH that utterly collapsed in that series to get out of groups.
It's always been known that top Indo teams have parity, just look at any of the ONIC games against BOOM or AEGO, they're always relatively close. Also, reducing a 10-13 and 17-19 to a 2-0 doesn't really do it justice. Either way, I felt that both the teams showed solid fundamentals in that series, at least till the depths of OT.
Finally, I don't think any of the teams I've watched so far have tried to replicate the PRX playstyle. They have their own, after all! However, they have taken inspiration from PRX, like ONIC using the smoke-recon combo on Ascent (technically that originated in NA, through Seal Team 6, but I digress)
they've been trolling since day 1
the number of times they've switched off a player that was just about to do something worth watching is insane
why do you think so? from what I've seen so far, all the teams have improved save for some (Secret and perhaps MITH)
i don't think they're a fluke team, they just haven't improved as much as everyone else in APAC.
so i suppose calling them washed would be more accurate
VRL Spain was supposed to have orgs from Italy, Portugal, and a few other countries other than Spain. LVpes instead gave those teams (example: SAW) 0 slots in favor of organizations that at the time didn't even have any rosters.
8 or 9 of the 10 teams were invited and they all were Spanish-based, with only a single open qualifier team.
tldr: riot gave management to lvpes who did a bad job
OG Nuturn was super fun to watch, sucks the roster fell apart after that single tournament.
that's what the auto-translation output lmfao
"future placenta warfare"
there's always more bullshit in the leadup to / during masters events, happens every time.
i just tested positive too
worst part is def being super fucking tired all the time
continuing the design language from last year with the animal heads and battle-royale-esque elements! the NA LCQ cinematics are definitely some of my favorite official valorant content
last map: 9-12 -> 14-12
sadly it looks like i caught the virus after dodging it for 2 years
my advice: do not touch grass.
i think that's happened to me before, especially in more like grounded dreams. like, I remember having an extremely realistic dream about missing a test and my entire excuse that i made up while dreaming to retake it
then my ass woke up and was like damn it's a fucking saturday
this guy is crazy but sometimes he throws super hard for flashy stuff
superstar material imo
Eschart's coverage of APAC has been pretty atrocious tbh
I remember the FS v VLT game way back in stage 1 hitting at least 150k but the site had it at like 60
you dug this out of the fucking depths lmfao how even
which players are good I know nothing about anybody competiting here
pati is wiping his ass with the OWL rn doubt he moves back any time soon
financial stability and assets, commitment, ability to create content, fanbase
+ no big PR fuckups
RIOT's communication on it is that they basically don't want to pay for booths like Valve does for DOTA.
i mean in comparison to EMEA teams I don't think there is any other region (currently) that has the same skill depth and diversity (which I assume is what he means by creativity).
APAC might in the near future if teams flesh out their playstyles a little more.
net and saya weren't random t2 players imo. net was one of the highest statistically fragging sentinels before getting signed.
the rest def were. trent prolly not even t2 literally popped up out of nowhere and started pounding
yeah! using something like the YouTube search option makes a lot more sense because people consume content for both games regardless of updates. Or, using a search term like "valorant masters" vs "csgo major" or "IEM", because people search those up for dates / tickets / scores.
the youtube search more or less reveals the same thing, though. (more east in Europe = more CS) https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?gprop=youtube&q=%2Fg%2F11j8wvrz8z,%2Fm%2F0h3pv2z
there's something funny about a player named dispenser selling skins lol
i wonder if there's a way to find the number of people in a certain wealth/income group, because of amount of leisure money needed to play the game in the first place (internet, a solid laptop)
I'd imagine that out of the 250 million people only a small portion of them have the chance to even play it or know about it due to the financial stuff.
holy kurwa this is some real shit
