I love guild been saying for like forever that Leo is a machine
I mean envy is the best na team they beat 100t and sen, then it’s a toss up
I agree envy over performed at berlin but they are def a top 5-6 team at lowest
you can’t just say “gambit young they just choked”, that’s so dumb. 100t had to play very well to even have a come back, it’s not like gambit just choked away 10 rounds and also choked the 3rd map lmao
100t might be awake, if you look at the first half of icebox (didn’t get to see ascent) they gave away so many free drags for nothing, just not aware of the angles and literally nobody could win a fight. When they came back and won the difference was night and day.
1V3 CLUTCH FOR THE ACE, 12S LEFT ON CLOCK, KILLS ONE, PLANTS AND GETS ULT, ROCKETS ONE THEN KILLS LAST!
I find EU servers way easier than NA servers for some reason.
cool. when did u make the change from 5/8 baiter to normal citizen btw? just a question
they were never a great team, they looked good because 100t and envy knocked themselves out in the iceland qualifier, and V1 was abusing the broken astra viper meta. Good job to them figuring it out ig. You could say they were good for about 3 weeks but then they fell off really hard after that meta ended and half their players left so
Yeah its gotta be TSM right?
there is 16 teams so there wont be any byes
i doubt many would be, give it a few more years. since its the same style of game then all the ex csgo players are going to have a huge head start on anyone playing valorant as their first fps
well yeah, the game hasnt even been out for a year and a half, how are kids going to grow up playing valorant and get into pro teams in a year and a half? Of course ex CS pros are going to be dominant at the start; they already have mechanics and basic fundamentals since valorant and cs are the same genre of game. All they have to get used to is the new utility and agent comps
It's also possible FNATIC overperformed at iceland/qualifiers and under performed recently. Surprised they arent in the qualifier tbf. NA is also improving.
You are right, I don't think a match from April proves anything NOW, but it does for that time period. That's why I didn't go back further. Going back 2 tournaments seemed like the furthest. 100T just got destroyed on Icebox so I'm really not sure anymore, but I still have to go with 100T just because they have been better on it and are generally accepted as the best Icebox team.
ya i put it in thanks
if you read the post you would see that I said that "Even though it's seeding, it's still important because seeding in Berlin will matter. Envy is still getting used to their new roster, so they will only get better which is pretty scary for NA T1 teams, since they took sentinels and 100T to the brink already."
Yeah bible post btw
This is actually a post with effort by the way and not some meaningless 1 line trash post like usual on these forums
100t results against top teams (Sentinels, XSET, Envy, etc) since April. Why April? April was the qualifier for Iceland, so the last time we saw NA before this event was April for Challengers Finals, then July which was Challengers 1, and now obviously another Challenger Finals the last week. Looking at all of the 100T Sentinels series, they don’t look close, since it's typically been a 2-0. However, I think they are a lot closer than they seem when Asuna is turned on.
Challengers Playoffs (April):
100T played Sentinels in the upper bracket semis, losing 1-2. Here is a quick breakdown of the maps.
Map 1: Haven: 11-13 (Sen pick): Very close game. This is the game where 100T got ecoed by sentinels on the last round of the game, while trying to force OT, by a TenZ Sherrif 4k. It’s not a repeatable thing and just shows how good of a player TenZ is that he can pop off like that. Should have went to OT.
Map 2: Icebox: 13-3 (100t pick): Dominant by 100t. Stomp
Map 3: Bind: 4-13 (Organizer Pick) Dominant by Sen. Stomp
Had 100t won haven, which was a real possibility, or forced OT and won, and TenZ hadn’t popped off so hard, then it could have been a 2-0 for 100t which would make the whole scene look entirely different.
Challengers 1 (July)
100T played envy, Xset, and sentinels in this tournament so it was a good representation of the current scene’s skill.
100T vs Envy, Winner’s Semis, 2-0
Map 1: Haven: 13-9 (Envy pick): Competitive, but a clear win by 100t. Final score not super close in the end but still a competitive game and definitely not a stomp.
Map 2: Icebox: 13-7 (100T pick): this is pretty much as low of a score as you can get without having it be called a stomp IMO. It’s a pretty dominant win.
So 100T pretty much rolled envy in both maps to get the better seeding, so envy fans don’t be crying about challenger finals and how 100T only qualified for Berlin because they had better seeding and didn't play Sentinels in the upper bracket… They beat envy for the seeding and then beat them again for seeding in Berlin.
100T vs Xset, Winner’s Finals, 2-1, SEEDING GAME
It’s a seeding game so it’s not as competitive but no pro players are trying to lose, the yare still giving it their best, just not showing their best strats.
Map 1: Haven: 12-14 (100T pick): Another close haven game that 100T cannot deliver. Went to OT and lost it.
Map 2: Icebox: 13:4 (Xset pick): This is a stomp. Safe to say 100T is the best Icebox team after only giving up 14 rounds in 3 maps.
Map 3: Ascent 10-13 (100T pick): Pretty close game, almost a 13-11 but not quite. Competitive the whole map.
Close series, 2 close maps, 1 went to OT, and one was a stomp.
100T vs Sen Loser’s Finals, 0-2, SEEDING GAME
Again, it's a seeding game so you can’t read much into it, but some of the players hate each other so it's also a personal thing. Both teams are definitely trying and it's not that they are trolling.
Map 1: Haven: 13-15 (100T pick): Another close OT game in haven that 100T loses, if they were slightly better on haven the last few months the whole scene would be different.
Map 2: Breeze: 8-13 (Sen pick): Semi-close, not quite competitive but not a stomp. Something interesting is that the first half was 6-6, with 100t starting on defense. That's a really good defensive half for breeze, which most people agree is a heavily attacker sided map. However, 100T only could get 2 executes that worked in the second half. I thought that if they could fix whatever their attacking issue was, then they could be really good on this map and beat sentinels on it. Or sentinels are just really good at defense on this map since the rotations play into their style.
Challengers Finals - Berlin Qualifiers
100T played XSET, ENVY, and SEN x2 again
2-0 XSET, Upper Semis. This was the most important match for these 2 teams in the whole tournament. If they won, they could avoid having to play any of the other teams to qualify again.
It was a 2-0, but as close of a 2-0 as you can get. 100t narrowly won. Could have gone either way and both teams made 2 comebacks, but XSET didn’t do enough with theirs.
Map 1: Haven (XSET pick) 13-11: 100t put together a great comeback in the second half to come back from 3-9. Finally they win a haven game
Map 2: Ascent (100T pick) 13-11: XSET also put together a great comeback in the second half to come back from 12-5, however 100T really should have closed it out earlier. 100 Throws.
0-2 Sentinels, Upper Finals SEEDING MATCH
Dominant series from sentinels, stomped first map and second was close at 8-8 until sentinels went on a 5 round winstreak.
Map 1: Split: 13-2 (Sen pick)
Dominant from sentinels, 100t had no chance
Map 2: Haven: 13-8 (100t pick):
Regardless of what the scoreline was, the map was another close haven series, at 8-8, until sentinels ran away with it.
3-2 Envy, Losers Finals SEEDING
Even though it's seeding, it's still important because seeding in Berlin will matter. Envy is still getting used to their new roster, so they will only get better which is pretty scary for NA T1 teams, since they took sentinels and 100T to the brink already. Picks don’t really matter much in a bo5 because you are gonna play almost all the maps anyways
Map 1: Haven: 5-13: Stomped. Surprised it wasn't close since usually 100t barely loses haven. They got worse or envy is good.
Map 2: Breeze: 13-10: Pretty close game
Map 3: Ascent: 13-10: Pretty close game
Map 4: Icebox: 8-13: This is supposed to be 100T best map, did teams figure them out with asuna on the ropes now? Semi-close, although 100t never looked like they would win or tied it up later on.
Map 5: Split: 13-5: Thought 100t would lose since they got 13-2 by SEN on this map, is envy just that much worse?
Overall, 2 close games, 1 somewhat close game, and 2 stomps
1-3 Sentinels, Grand Finals SEEDING
Map 1: Bind: 11-13: Very competitive and close game, especially for a perma ban, although it's likely that they perm banned bind so that they didn’t get streamed playing it and could anti-strat sentinels. It almost worked. Had they won, they would have played on icebox. The last time that happened 100t won 13-3, so I’m curious to see what would have happened.
Map 2: Breeze 13-11: Close game, I will say that sentinels had some insanely lucky kills several rounds that won them rounds, however it happens to all teams. These just were particularly memorable. (Sick vandal spray hits the 1 head pixel, zombs spray through smoke kills 3)
Map 3: Haven 13-6: Stomp. 100T haven has fallen off a cliff it seems.
Map 4: Split 13-5: Stomp, not as bad as before though.
So there have been a lot of games that 100t has narrowly lost to sentinels (and also the ones that they win they have narrowly won typically, but that's how the scene should be). Stop under rating 100t, had they won bind which is a very real possibility, then it would have been a map 5 on Icebox which 100T is supposed to be really good at, even though they just lost to envy 13-8. Obviously sentinels stomped 2 maps, but the 2 maps that were not played are supposedly maps that lean the way of 100T. I think 100T had a very weak map pool, but with bind back, now it might not be so weak.
compare map pools:
100Tbeen perma banning bind, but evidently they are good on that map.
Ascent: Supposedly leans the way of 100t but not much to base off
Bind: very close (probably a counter start though so not sure)
Breeze: very close
Icebox: 100T is supposed to be the clear winner here.
Haven: Used to be very close (13-15,11-13) but Sen just stomped twice so not sure.
Split: Sen clear win
The more nervous Asuna is the more shaky he will be...
And we all know what a shaky Asuna can do...
100T is alot closer to sentinels than people think. As seen yesterday, they are close on bind, close on breeze, 100t dominates icebox, sen dominates split, haven has been close typically, not usually so lately. All of the sentinels 100t were fairly competitive and at least somewhat close from this year so far.
So basically out of the 6 maps
Icebox: Favors 100T
Ascent: likely favors 100T but not sure
Haven: Used to be close but now Favors SEN
Split: SEN free win
100t and sentinels are alot closer than people think
What will happen to the LCQ spots? Will the next team up get a spot?
Bind: SEN 13 - 11 100T
100t also have a really good icebox. However I think 100t map pool is really weak where as sentinels would be able to play every map. Before today, 100t perms banned bind because they were shit on it apparently, and also hard lose haven and split.
they beat envy and xset, so they would have just made their way through lowers and beat xset/envy in losers semis to qualify
Rise got so much matches on sentinels, sentinels got like 3 games of rise
Yes, the first 2 rounds of the upper bracket are played today, and whoever wins those games qualifies.
anyone else got the feeling that rise is gonna 2-1 sentinels.
win first map 13-11, lose second map 13-3, win third map 15-13.
IDK why but it's gonna happen today trust
sure, but that means the team has improved, not that wardell is a top 10 jett itw. and I'm sure you could, like you just pre aim to where they will be since you have the info and they are surprised because its a different peek so you have a huge advantage. Maybe not to curry, but at least to people in your rank.
why is everyone in the forum sinatraa fanboy
Shahzam pretty good sova and jett...
youre the guy who thinks "hiko baiting" isn't a meme who i explained it to a week ago, sooo
are you dumb sinatraa hasnt played in 6 months and when he did he was worse than hiko. although hiko has fallen off since then
well obv not but tsm hard play around him, in this clip alone, you got jump peeker, operator and astra smoking off to stop a trade. Like TSM play around him so much, of course you are gonna get good stats when you are fed kills. All Wardell has to do is not whiff the shot, the rest of his team makes his job super easy and require little skill
IDK everyone is saying look at wardells first blood stats, or hes so good at getting kills with the OP.
This video explains perfectly why that is, without him being even top 10 jett. How are you gonna miss free kills when you know exactly where they are
