it should be? at least i thought so

pacific was random draw. sen could be playing any of eg, loud, or nrg (they want eg ngl)

i dont mind nzr or c0m. the glaring issue isn't language barrier, its obv player performance. i would give tex the regular season before making a decision, but i could see a world in which lev just immediately go to nuking the roster

posted 15 hours ago

how is this c0m fault when tex was playing like that

posted 15 hours ago

they don't need any roster changes. they just need to figure out their map pool (for fucks sake, ban split old lev was shit at it too). if they are awful on breeze too, you can come back to this and clown me. but until that happens, its simply a map pool diff

im sorry again potter. eg isn't cooked, they make madrid. potter best coach. jawgemo is still the best raze and top 10 players itw.

this is prob way too early but i dont think potter cooked with this roster

they dropped rb and zest because they wanted to change something and foster young talent. k1ng would be the opposite of that - a player whose tenure in the scene has been long, albeit not always successful. my guess is that the underlying reason for them promoting flashback instead of picking him up was because t1 and gen g both moved on from him

(to get into rumors, yes, he was said to not be a great for team morale. do with that what you will)

FUT arent a bad team? they just did an ange1 cosplay for groups

boaster's calling that map was not impressive, i wouldn't just use ''munchkin bad igl'' as a reason why they couldn't win. vit have cender igling, who is doing it for the first time this season

posted 2 days ago

in all seriousness if derke plays like he just did fnc will get shit on by s3xture. they can't be having him drop those numbers

aren't u british + fnc flair? fuck are you doing with that combo

idk if its LOUD, but as you said its reasonable to think that they are the unknown

they were just starting, unfortunately tarik didn't show the score after

(i am not jamesff, but as teams are now starting to consistently scrim someone has to fill in)

source is via tarik stream this afternoon, imgur doesn't work for me so i just found a video where tarik leaks them (scrim leaks start from 4:32)

feel like the standard set for international events in apac is that the level of gameplay is high. just look at worlds 2023 and masters tokyo

posted 4 days ago

the only reason i could give you is that next year riot will be forced to add more details (finishers, sounds, etc) because they'll want more money

(honestly just get it, prx team did a fantastic job. just look at some of the other apac teams and how they got shafted)

posted 4 days ago

1/8 because there's a target audience for the bait. do better

posted 4 days ago

they aren't even that awful all things considered. its just that jp talent pool is shallow due to buyouts and t2 talent not wanting to join the org (dfm doesn't have a great track record with player treatment). a lot of people in the pacific scene have credited meiy with being a really good player, but hes the only player on the team who is at a t1 level imo. the team is just a remixed CR so they are basically a t2 team

posted 4 days ago

obviously this is a random scrim comp, they wouldn't reveal actual comps for vct like that. also its just a mix of LOUD + last year PRX comp

vit 2-0 fnc (because who honestly wants to see a dominant fnc win, if group a was anything to show people wanna see upsets)

posted 4 days ago

if vit make madrid will he play with them then or will they just play destrian because of comfort? idk how long he has been applied for the visa

i dont think steel was giving this analysis so vlr nrg fanboys could run with it ngl

posted 4 days ago

yeah no its 1-1, i was typing too quickly lol

posted 4 days ago

they were playing really proactively, i think they are just missing a bit more extremities stuff. his calling was fine, and his stats werent god awful either

posted 4 days ago

its a round robin, so the best record team advances. in the event that all teams go 0-2 it will be determined by map and then round differential

posted 4 days ago

gen g all the way

posted 4 days ago

it is weird that riot wouldn't implement it in val since they already do it in league but ig at this point in the scene they don't want to incentivize like that

posted 5 days ago

aside the mass doom posting, these skins could be redeemed by effects and finisher. we don't know what they look like yet

posted 5 days ago

gen g looking good. same with lev, tln, koi (there were a few other ones too that were good). mibr and tl are ass tho ngl

posted 5 days ago

i mean pipson has had decent success, so personally i would look at the players before him. g2 was good for a long team, even despite having pretty inconsistent players

posted 5 days ago

it was good. there were rounds where he straight up just called what a team should/shouldn't do, and it played out exactly like he said it would. good analytical talent to have as a caster

posted 5 days ago

just wanted to make this post to let everyone know that either KC or TH are guaranteed to make playoffs and be one match from madrid, and one of fut or giantx will not

edit: this post was meant to be making fun of giantx and fut for playing awfully, as well as TH not being terrible like people thought

posted 5 days ago

fut tried to be navi (idk how, there's no ange1) by putting cned on shitty agents and running bad comps. they also couldn't shoot properly, so ig it was a rare off-day in that regard. oh, and boo had a life game

posted 5 days ago

really fucked up to say this after they just ended their tournament, but the point is valid. cryo looks the most out of place on this team. asuna is a close second, but his problem is that he can't shoot back anymore for some reason

posted 5 days ago

i think it works super well, hes doing a great job for his first time. on top of that his analysis has been really damn good, so its not like hes just saying random shit

posted 5 days ago

bait used to be believable

i doubt that i will have perfect pickems after the next set of games, but my faith in LOUD was rewarded

i would say secret and global are winnable, but rrq and gen g are prob better by a significant margin

posted 1 week ago

i don't think tex is playing poorly, i think you are thinking 100t are more shit than they actually are. bind was a disasterclass by 100t when it came to shooting back, otherwise they are 100% better than lcq 100t

posted 1 week ago

not gonna try to convince a professional glazer but SEN has a better chance than LEV to qualify at this point and NRG have to beat a team of a higher caliber before people take them seriously. u can go on all u want but until that happens very few people will believe NRG won't crumble too

posted 1 week ago

nothing against 100t fans on this site but why tf is it always 100t games where the crowd is blatantly calling out stuff? maybe im just super unaware but im pretty sure that doesnt happen when other teams play

posted 1 week ago

under this new system of goked and itopata, kingg can actually focus on calling instead of fragging. lev's overall gameplan just looks better than last year ngl

It’s probably some shit with riot’s player contract rules or buyouts, there’s no way either party would stall for this long
