nah man give them some credit. you can support and congratulate other teams without bringing optic down, sure there might have been unfortunate circumstances earlier this year that could've given optic a slightly easier win but they still won it and continue to prove they are in contention for best in the world. they have the most consistent results of any team in valorant, most teams aren't even constantly in the running for winning events but optics been in 3 grand finals. maybe take into consideration that since valorant is a changing meta that allows other teams to rise to the top (exactly why we have 6 different major winners) yet optic can still float above. if they stick as a 5 they'll win something else

i heard somewhere kingg said that the crowd affected them but i'm not sure how much truth there is to it. but even if he didn't say that i feel for them, not even mentioning the fact they have many young players on their roster, they're playing in a different continent infront of thousands of people for probably the first time. yeah it's not really an excuse, but you've gotta feel bad after going 4-0 in groups.

his sage on this map is the best ive seen, this tournament and copenhagen. its just crazy

maybe best in the world is a bit of an overstatement lol. but they're definitely in contention for top 4, and i see a world they could actually win if they carry on playing like they have been - especially with how many pistols they win, its fking insane. we haven't seen enough of them on LAN to call them the best itw (honestly don't know if we'll ever be able to call a team best in the world, if you play every grand final in valorant 10 times over you'll get a different team winning every time. im sure of it) but what we have seen of them is incredible, definitely an amazing team that shouldn't be underrated any more

nah man, there is such a shortage of t1 igls in this game and boaster fills that gap. even if he's not a fragger you've got to give him credit for his igl abilities. fnatic were probably frothing trying to get him to sign a longer contract, teams without a good igl are bound to fail in a game like this. stats today were kinda abysmal though i cant lie

same aha, couldnt be happier w the result today. gonna be so sick for them to have so much time to prep going into playoffs

TL plays great in regional events and okay at an international level once they get going but I've always thought m3c played amazing at an international level... just always chokes in qualifiers :(

WWWWWWW love hearing about panpoc

game he grew up on and was his dream to go pro in it. wouldve been a bigger name in it had it not been for his vac ban which basically meant he couldnt attend any LANs backed by valve iirc (which makes it impossible to ever become a t1 pro)

posted 1 month ago

pretty reasonable list, its tough to rank the top 3, 5 or even 10 going INTO a tournament because it usually depends on players performances from months before or players that haven't performed on an international stage in a while (or ever), also taking different roles into account. maybe id have atleast 1 fpx player in the top 3 but maybe thats just emea bias lol

posted 1 month ago

fnatic bootcamped stage 1 iirc, or atleast some of the players did? as far as I remember m3c didn't bootcamp stage 1 but I'm not really sure, they bootcamped most of stage 2 but for the last final games went home and didn't bootcamp for lcq. not that it's an excuse, but yeah

I mean, I don't expect them to win the whole thing but I'd give them a damn good chance to make it at least out of groups, if not further. Sure this iteration of the roster has never made it to a LAN but they've also only played in 2 qualifying tournaments and looked extremely dominant in the final games of LCQ, if they keep playing like they have been they're gonna be a hot team to look out for at champs. It's anyone's game

I've defended d3ffo and his roles within the team so many times on here but honestly I don't think it would've made a difference this time around, just felt lackluster on the last few maps and no matter if they'dve played with Jady, d3ffo, purp0, the outcome would've stayed the same imo. still sucks to see them lose especially after trying to "fix" things but it is what it is, hope franchising treats them all well 😀

posted 1 month ago

the ping thing is fucked but what can u do, shit happens and rito doesn't fix it. personally, i don't think having d3ffo on the roster would've made a difference, jady is great on his own roles but there were deeper issues in this run definitely. im a massive fan of d3ffo but it's hard to compare them and, looking at stats and how he performed, jady is a more well rounded player. just unfortunate and sad they didn't qual :')

yeah i agree fnatic doesn't seem as adaptable as maybe some other teams that are supposed to be top tier, fpx is an amazing team that can adapt on the fly with minimal prep time. probably thanks to their insane players with very deep agent pools, they also seem to have a deep map pool aswell. fnc has great players and are great when they're winning but when they're losing they seem lost and lackluster, maybe they'llve learnt this time and look cleaner in champs

posted 1 month ago

honestly i think a rematch will 9/10 times favour the team that lost 1st (if they are around the same level), it happens so much. a team that loses will learn more from their loss than a team that wins
*not that all finals n shit are rematches, just alot of the time they are. also just a lb run will learn more from their losses

its kinda scuffed but so was the whole tourny, liquid and g2 having to play two bo3s in one day was also stupid. just strange all round

first off 4 months isn't going to solve those problems they were experiencing and im positive it still has lasting effects (maybe im wrong though!), chronicle's tweet (https://twitter.com/chronicleEZ/status/1558879869597089792) whilst i paraphrased it in my original reply, explains that they no had "sponsors, no comfort zone to train & compete with 50-60 ping against 5-15". sheydos' tweet (https://twitter.com/Sheydosk1ng/status/1558877894406971392) whilst not explicitly stating they was a bad mental obviously, unless you're blind, shows that this tournament had a toll on their/his mentals. you have to have no empathy at all if you're trying to argue the fact this whole situation isn't tough for them, i'm not arguing against liquid deserving this win im simply stating that it's quite obvious this year for them hasn't been great for them mentally. (Also they never qualified for iceland, that was fpx.)

chronicle not as comfortable on jett as chamber, rather have one of your best players on an agent they can perform on instead of sticking them on a different agent and no one else on the roster can play jett except purpo

nah, for some reason EMEA is the only region who doesn't give the upper bracket team both map bans. m3c banned haven and liquid banned fracture

posted 1 month ago

bold of you to assume how the players are feeling, 2022 has been a tough year for all of the m3c boys. not having an org to back you, not being able to bootcamp appropriately, fully out of their comfort zone, etc - the mental effect this would of had on the players is incredibly apparent and faltered their performance. sure they're motivated but motivation isn't always gonna overcome these sorts of problems.

gonna be a crazy one, hoping for a good series

posted 1 month ago

I didn't get to watch the first 2 maps but icebox is notoriously a rough map for m3c (and historically, against m3c, for liquid aswell..) both teams were jittery in OT but what else can you expect? insanely important game, whilst its not the qualifying game no team wants to have to play another bo3 a few hours after
