but who's ch4k3nio :(
EL GORDO BS best
Ukraine Vladyslava "Vladyslava" Zakhliebina
Germany Christian "PsYcHo" Lenz
I pretty sure they managers for the teams.
That's a fuckin dream team.
I think gaules would be a much better choice.
Anyway just put keyd team, and if that is not possible add Cold and someone else.
Let me tell you the story on the formation of Keyd:
Fallen and Fer used to play with Hen1, Lucas1 and Fnx, but after the ESWC they decided to kick Fnx due to low performance.
When they were looking for a 5 player, Zqk and Steel invited them to unite the 2 team (PG.TD the second best team and Kabum, fallen's team), at that time Zqk was the best Awp in brazil (fallen wasn't playing to much because of hen1 be only good at awp not rifles).
Another point was that fer was tired of playing with Hen1 because of his playstyle. So they decided to kick Hen1 and Lucas1 (they are twin brothers).
The new team was formed with Fallen, Fer and Zqk the TOP3 of that time, + Steel who was not performing so good, the last player to call was one of those: Cold, Felps or Boltz. They pick'd Boltz because he was already at Zqk's team. At that time nobody really know who Boltz was ( I followed him when he start playing at Baixissimo Nivel, so I knew it was a good choice).
With the five players chosen they start to compete and there were anybody that could bet them. After some time Taco's team (dexterity) finally maybe hosted changes and decided to practices hard, at the begin of May they finally bet Keyd on a Bo3 @Net. Dexterity is formed by: TACO, Cold, Hen1, Lucas1 and Prd.
Duo to Zqk low performance today i would stay Hen1 is better than him, but i would NEVER change Keyd members. Cold, Felps and Lucas1 are at a high level too.
Top3: Faller, Fer, Boltz
Awp Choices: Zqk or Hen1
Rifle Choices: Steel, Cold, Lucas1 or Felps.
these 3 would add something to the team, these three players have different styles:
Felps is probably what has more individual skill from 3, both with rifles as awp, we could then see him and the Fallen turns the Awp 1, although it is still an immature player and it would have a low income the same as at the beginning Boltz , to get experience.
Meanwhile Hen1 can have a Awp better than Felps, but he is a player who only limited to Awp because of this he is a player with the same style ZQK, the difference here is that Hen1 lives a better time than ZQK, but he's dumber than the last, we can not know what would happen here.
Finally the last option is Taco today it has one of the best sights in Brazil and is one of the players who is dedicated to improving, many will criticize me for quoting him because he does not have the same style as the ZQK, but if the change is with TACO, Fallen and Cold would make the AWP function, so other madfragger could follow mainly Fer in entryfrags as the other players off the Fallen are not as aggressive.
Because of this I was team manager of Keyd would effect changes between Cold Steel and for obvious reasons, taking the experience today is above the Cold Steel on all questions, so he would add very mainly the Fallen style of play and would take a little weight back in just the same he take care the game.
In the case of ZQK many would choose the Hen1, but I think the opposite, change ZQK by Hen1 would replace 6 by 6, however ZQK is weaker individually when not with the awp in hand it becomes a Support Fer , this is important Role and Hen1 can not play even a little good this with rifles, and also by Keyd be a very tactical team, with input from the Hen1 the team would lose some of that, so choose the Taco or Felps, change the way the Keyd play, but from that we will have much more individual skill with Rifles, and we can see the Fallen as Awp 1, where he actually plays 100%.
put Fallen was Awp 1, an i will try to explain why.
Fallen role as a captain depends a lot on see what the other players are doing and decide what to do next, also Fallen usually plays as support buying Galil/Famas + more grenades, change Fallen to Awp1 would change a lot of Keyd style, another point is that the enemy team never knows if Fallen has an Awp and where he is, because he can rotate a lot in the map, due to his positions.
I think Fallen is insane with Awp, but in Keyd current playstl
yle he NEEDS to be the n2 Awp.
About Cold I totally agree with you, he is great, but he is the kind of guy that would replace Fallen on an team so he could give his 100%.
That is why I only said about his ak/colt skills.
About TACO, I personally don't think he is as good as people think, yes he is dedicated, but IMO he needs to improve a lot to be compared with the others.
Talk about Felps is difficult, he seems to be improving but I don't think he is ready, so I agree with you.
The problem I see changing Zqk for Hen1 is that he can not perform well with rifles (not that Zqk is doing good with that too), and I don't like his in game attitude, he talks a lot, make jokes, and not always is sure of what he is doing.
ALL that i said was about Keyd's playstyle, but l the roles can be changed in this new team.
Keyd's playstyle team:
1. Fallen IGL, 2Awp
2. Hen1/ Zqk 1Awp
5. Steel / Cold
1. Cold IGL 2 Awp
2. Fallen 1 Awp
5. Steel / TACO / Felps / Lucas1
Wanna move to Algeria or Tunisia right now LOL
wish i could be reppin my country
Final 4 - Sweden, France, Poland, Ukraine
Final - Sweden, France.... Sweden for the win.
Brazil > Denmark, Australia, Germany.
Brazil = USA
Denamark >> Brazil
mouse beat them with bot legija and bot zonixx in the team.
now they are even stronger
Then we can call the winners of this tournament the true global elites.
1 from North America
2 from South America
2 from Africa
2 from Asia
8 from Europe
Corrected for outside Europe: Australia, USA, Canada, and Brazil.
NA - 3 countries
It's about the amount of teams
I'm assuming since this isn't a Valve/ESEA event, banned players can participate?
Skadoodle, shroud, swag, DaZeD and steel would be awesome to see.
This is something like WCG used to be. :v
also probably not allowed more than 3 players from any team
sure take some fnatic players, but also its chance for other swe players to play together :xx
fallen, fer,boltz,cOld,hen1. Or fallen, fer boltz, cold and taco. I think they are the best brazilians players.
Has a whole 168 hours of cs behind his name.
We plenty of players with 3000+ hours and have been around the SA competitive scene for over a decade.
How does this even happen, this kind of thing makes a joke of our community and the e-frag organizers
This Ryan "Snowflake" Boyes is a fraud and is using this competition to get a free trip overseas!
We the community of South Africa call for a change to this. This player has no experience in CSGO nor has anyone even heard of him!
Here is his steam profile
His hours are worth nothing. Plays in no SA leagues. Is not part of the strong 2000 player community.
I ask on behalf of the South African community that you change this player and get feedback from known community leaders which I can get you in touch with.
I would like to see South Africa field the best team we can for this competition. Top 4 teams being DC, EN, BVD, EC.
Please feel free to contact me with more information on why Ryan "Snowflake" Boyes is a fraud and if you would like to see the community’s reaction please contact me!
HAHA what a joke.. GG
"Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is an affiliate of the South African Confederation of Sport and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and recognised by the Department of Sport and Recreation (SRSA) as the national controlling body in terms of the Sport and Recreation Act of 1998 (as amended). The said Act recognises Mind Sports South Africa as the sole authority for its disciplines as a sport and/or as a recreation in the Republic."
I suggest you contact them if you have any discrepancies with the captain.
Had to create an account here just because it sucks so much to see South Africa being represented this way :/
166 hours on CSGO ...
Never ranked in a comp...
None of the CSGO players in ZA know of him
I dont even think his played CSGO in DGL... and yet he gets to represent South Africa cause he submitted an application or paid/knows someone...
The CSGO community of ZA should not be represented by a DOTA2 player with 166 hours on csgo.
If you want players to represent South Africa for CSGO, have a look at the DGL.
Very sad news for the CSGO scene in South Africa.
I will definitely not want to watch any of their games.
For example: I have ping 40 on argentina and ping 70 on chile.
But, it depends on the route, pings from Brasil to Argentina can reach 100, and to Chile 160. And vice versa.
2. On that note GO NUGA AND ESTONIA
3.where da FAQ is UAE
AHHAHA TOP CAPTAIN IN THE WORLD..
Besides, best Ukrainian line-up I can think of is:
Fail Event bye
France - top 2
Denmark- top 3
US - top 4
others. not worth entioning
ukraine, russia, poland, germany
btw US won't even make it to the offline finals :)
? ? ?
hades/glorinzs/XP3(if he counts)
i never heard of him
GJ HLTV... JK
I don't watch football, so i wasn't aware that some countries compete in European tournament despite not being a European country. Oh well, guess i know now.
Go Canada! :D
but, go go POLANDO !
Neo, Byali, Snax, Michu, Innocent - best lineup !
sa: Brazil, Peru
as: Vietnam, China
af: Republic of South Africa, Algeria
best captain ever... (http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/765611979940705..
Cause i don't see why france has niak as a player then.
rooting for SA
How the nations are chosen ? BibleThump
liek if u kray evrytaym cuz ur shit country doesn't give a damn bout esports <3
joelz would not come to lan anyway so
I hope it will be manager
also i've heard 15 times from u that u'll never again play with n1nnx in a team&n1nnx said the same for ntg long time ago
not gonna discuss with u about what happened on hltv :) aj
i never played with anybody in a team since enro, it was a mix, im done with cs anyways so idk anymore
if each team has 6 players/staff that would be 96 people x ~$1,000 for travel/accommodation = ~$100,000 just for this
Lol, another polish being best player in the EU country.
So for Ukraine vladyslava will most likly chose the 5 players not actually participate in the event.
top3 is real, gogo Proland
PS: piţurCrazy didn't manage to do much, maybe you will :D...may the scum saucer Godz be with you Kappa
Some of team are managers of current pro teams so I hope they'll do the same job for the team they assemble...
Whatever roster he puts together can't be underestimated.
Anyways.. GO DENMARK!
also france is promising, usually the french international teams are always 3 of nV + kennyS + apEX
Kazakhstan, UK, and Brazil also have a chance to make it to the LAN.
However, most likely not because they would have to get the absolute BEST players to have a chance.
also order means nothing, just peeps who will qualify
"A total of 77 nations will be competing in regional qualifiers to secure one of the 16 places at the offline finals"
? +me will be best but will be someone like slayn
I understand that each country is gonna recruit the best of the best players within their respective country, but the qualifying process from each continent that I don't understand.
Some random african team
No interest or no given opportunity ?
we have talents like ScreaM .. just unknown be careful
Btw wish them the best but sad for our community see this kind of staff, people from other country making decisions for us fcking sad probably the peruvians who are going to assist are 3 from pvore and i hope so not those that arent active including myself, friendship too stronk here to make those stupid decisions
Sweden / France / Brazil / Denmark / Poland / Finland / Australia or United States
Finland and Australia are likely to play with Team 3DMAX and Vox / Immunity so it will also be prepared, while the United States has many players and if they make the right mix they can surprise.
Place as the championship disappointments team of Ukraine and Germany.
The other teams do not have to say anything on the list, each have the best players in the world, has only chance to lose if team came up with the joke.
Optimal marketing gimmick this World Cup csgo, who had this idea was a very intelligent group, good luck for the tournament, which can become a Major in the nearby editions. Hopefully everything right in all regions and the qualifier is fair.
I don't see any other final but Sweden vs France to be honest
