i got downvoted for being right
you literally cannot be 10-15 in maps with a 5-4 record, it is not possible since you can only lose 1 map at most in each of your wins and 2 maps in each of your losses. 5 + (4 * 2) = 13 is elementary school math guys
hey @OP, you edited TL's map record to be 10-15 but that still doesn't add up with them being 5-4. even if all 5 of their wins are 2-1 (5 map losses) they'll still only have 8 map losses from the 4 losses, which only adds up to 13. also, you have 108 total map wins and 112 map losses which doesn't work. you could change TL's map prediction to be 10-11 to fix both problems though
that's also not possible, if they lose 4 games they have to lose at least 8 maps
what are the parentheses? i thought they were map differential but it's impossible for TL to be 5-4 and 6-15 in maps
9-3 curse x2
oh for sure, i'm not saying it's unlucky that they keep losing like that, but i'm saying that as a 1-3 team they are remarkably close to being 4-0 and a top seed
everyone's mentioning bdog on smokes which is fair, but it's also kind of notable that every single ones of their losses was extremely close, all of their losses went to map 3 and the map 3s that they lost were 11-13, 14-16, 11-13, so they could easily be 4-0 right now if a handful of rounds went their way
can we stop with the skrossi threads no one asked and no one cares
on lotus victor played skye, ardiis could easily play kay/o instead (crashies would still play sova or maybe skye) and yay could play chamber, or they could go single controller and have FNS play killjoy while yay plays jett
either kj/sova/kayo/omen/jett or kj/skye/kayo/omen/jett, both would be perfectly normal
bro is talking to himself
NaVi over LOUD even though LOUD pushed FNC to their limit and NaVi couldn't take a map?
edit: you changed it nvm
what's their roster again?
statistically even if you were randomly guessing you would have about a 0.067% chance of getting that
i'm half chinese and got 6/18
in terms of most hype I would agree with NaVi and 100T because it gives you a team from every major continent, and all of these teams have huge followings as well as very solid teams that will create some great matchups and bring a lot of hype to semis as well as reaching the largest variety of fans
an alternative would maybe be LEV over NaVi and FNC over 100T, LEV and FNC are looking insane as well and the last time they played we got a wild match, not having NA in top 4 would obviously lose some hype from NA fans though
math is hard

great article, but it seems to imply a couple times that Sacy is the IGL, isn't dephh the main IGL and Sacy just a secondary caller?
optic ran double sentinel on haven at champions and got 2nd place with it bro i don't think it's a troll pick
this guy is +52...
something's going for the kill record again
can we just acknowledge that NRG and LOUD are 2 of the best teams we have in the franchise, they both played an amazing match (other than map 1) and it's a good thing that we were able to see such an exciting matchup between 2 juggernauts especially given the upset/fluke potential that comes with single elim?
some whiffs aside, maps 2 and 3 were probably 2 of the best games we've seen so far in this tournament, and regardless of your opinion on either team, you can't deny that this was a spectacular match
best igl would be considering all aspects of the player's gameplay including both their shotcalling and individual performance
best as igl would be specifically referring to only their shotcalling
NVM already fixed, had a match date glitch on the page but was probably just on my end
didnt m80 just kind of roll tsm or were we watching a different game
hey, at least you said "couldn't care less" instead of "could care less", lots of people with english as their first language can't even get that right
please work on your reading comprehension skills, that's far more important than your personal goal of 1000 vlr posts
"Ascension is so cutthroat lol"
"These teams are grinding like crazy all year from every region just for 1 single slot in franchise 😭
meanwhile dogshit teams like DetonatioN got in to franchise for free 😹😹 that is just sad bruh"
yo someone tell me if i'm crazy or something but i don't see "NA Ascension" or even "NA" anywhere in there
both of those are franchise teams??? unless you're trying to say that your franchise teams are tier 2...
you replied to op saying detonation is a dogshit team by comparing it to C9 only getting top 8 at champs 2021, and i was pointing out how that is a substantially larger achievement than failing to make top 8 in japan for the last 2 years, what are you missing?
op didn't even mention a single NA team or NA in general in his original post bro
name 5 tier 2 teams in other regions that can beat the guard
if NA ascension is tier 4 in other regions that should be easy right?
talking about c9 only placing top 8 at 2021 champs
meanwhile detonation didn't even make top 8 in japan at any point during the last 2 years...
i agree wholeheartedly
small correction, it says that "Gambit blitzed through the group stage and to the grand finals without dropping a map." should say match instead because they dropped a map in all of their wins
that's fair, but it generally seems like tier 2 is significantly larger than tier 1 in professional scenes, and additionally the line is very blurred between the bottom tier franchising teams and the top tier ascension teams, since there will likely be some ascension teams that are better than some franchised teams
that's why i'm considering it as a tier 1.5, i don't really think it's a full step down from tier 1 and it makes more sense to think of the VCLs as the tier 2 scene
this makes sense, i'd personally consider ascension teams more of like a tier 1.5 since a lot of those players would be at a similar or possibly even better level than some of the lower-end franchise teams, plus 1/10 of those teams will directly become franchised teams and likely several other players will end up getting signed to other franchised teams
and then i'd have tier 2 as all the VCL teams and tier 3 as any other formulated teams competing in open tournaments such as knights monthly for NA, etc
then tier 4 would probably be the in-game premier mode
SQUIRTLE SQUAD TO CHALLENGERS! 2-1
and you represent the worst of both worlds
from being an academy team to competing in the VCT regular season
congratulations to The Silk Road, 2-1 vs OXG
investing in this comment for the last sentence
which franchise team does marved play for again?
