BR + LAS + LAN = 4 slots. EU and NA and APAC all get 3.

Riot definitely doesn't like SEN, TSM, Faze, etc because of their orgs but they'll probably be forced to get Sentinels purely for viewership. It's a sad state of affairs but I bet it'll happen.

TSM are def not a lock. Riot specifically didn't like their proposal, and they're company isn't good financially. Same with Faze. Also these matches that happen right now mean NOTHING for franchising. Riot doesn't care that much what team you field or how "good" they are. They care that your org will be a good partner for the next 4 years. People are definitely thinking way too short term about this. Once franchising hits, all teams that we currently have will likely be no more. There will be an insane amount of roster moves, and I'd guess teams will snatch up free agents to make insane 8-10 man teams (with 5 players inactive) just so they can mix and match without having to deal with buyouts.

My guess is 100T, Optic, and C9 are locks. Popular plus been in na valorant plus good orgs that riot likes. In terms of orgs that riot likes there’s TGRD, NRG, EG, and T1 (yes they still want to be in NA sadly). Then there’s the problem children of SEN, Faze, and TSM who’s proposals riot didnt like, but have insane amounts of popularity. My final guess (assuming 5 slots) is:

100T
C9
SEN
Optic
TGRD (hopium)

I get what you mean abt optic but also they still made top 3. That’s not “getting exposed” at all, and that result makes them the most consistent team in all of valorant so far.

Cryo and zekken were two of the highest performers at Copenhagen. If the team didn’t throw constantly (and face optic in the first round lmao) they’d have done a lot better.

Not optic, faze, or xset

Right but didn’t they dissolve completely

posted 20 hours ago

No it’s not that. Will has shown he can’t perform at the level needed for a champs grand finals team; the team in general is very prep heavy so a bracket like at champs will make it impossible to maintain their level of prep. Finally, their mid rounding isn’t good enough imo. I like stellar but he’s not FNS or Ange1 or Benkai.

When did they get third??

posted 20 hours ago

Sorry 100T isn’t making it that far. They’re a massive step up from the old roster but they’re still lacking in a few respects. I’d believe prx in grand final tho

posted 20 hours ago

They’ll be better on lan next time. They were just inexperienced at first.

unironically would be better than you think

I’ve been saying they have a shot since the end of stage 2, ppl just love to think of them as washed

Guard

He's neither. He's a solid player but not insane. He'll have good games but I don't think he'll consistently be a superstar like some ppl expect him to be.

I love Bren + Wyatt. Bren's streams are a chaotic adhd fueled nightmare in the best way. I'll never forget when he had that steel shattering sound randomly play or when there was dancing fruit on the screen for a full 30 minutes. FNS has been really good recently too. Sliggy and C9 Mel's streams are also great chill analytical ones.

I agree, that optic comeback shattered their focus and then they got dropped in with PRX, the team they match up worst against.

posted 1 day ago

Honestly just looking at it from a trajectory standpoint, SEN has an edge. That being said, I don't trust their coaching staff nearly as much as 100Thieves'. I think 100T will win becuase they'll prep better, but it could go either way. I'd take NRG or C9 over either in the next match tho.

posted 1 day ago

Yeah I didn't anticipate them missing so much practice bc of covid. Think they would've put on a better showing. Still have faith in TGRD tho

I'd say Skuba or Nismo.
