One of these groups is not like the other... xD
2017-04-18 20:27:46
+1, i dont understand how they could fuck it up this badly.

i guess in terms of the seeding the argument would be that neither c9 nor liquid have done anything at all this year, whereas slumping gambit are major legends and heroic and hr have results to show for.
2017-04-18 21:56:54

2017-04-18 20:27:51

Shit groups
2017-04-18 20:30:22
Group A:
Hellraisers
Gambit

Group B:
G2
Immortals
2017-04-18 20:31:24
group B rigged bad for a NA team to get a good chance to get to playoffs but fucked them with getting them a stacked group

PREDICTIONS:

HR 2-0 G2 2-0

Heroic 2-1 IMT/C9 2-1

-playoffs
HR vs IMT/C9 2-1 Heroic vs G2 0-2


G2 vs HR 2-1


if G2 cant win this event then they have to get a change in roles or players
2017-04-18 20:32:48
ez G2
2017-04-18 20:33:11
ez dir Luminosity
2017-04-18 20:34:02
Group B is rigged, come on
should be ezpz G2
2017-04-18 20:34:08
RIP NA TEAMS LMAO
2017-04-18 20:35:03
lol if G2 doesn't win this tier5 tournament then rip
2017-04-18 20:35:17
There a reason the best teams are all in Group B?
2017-04-18 20:35:40
I feel like HR has proved they are better than the NA teams but other than that I agree. Seems weird to have Heroic, Luminosity, and Gambit in one group while 4 of the top 5 teams in this event are in the other.

heroic have done pretty well in katowice. gambit are major legends. hr top4 starladder.

meanwhile:
imt semis i think katowice, g2 quarters starladder, NA teams nothing at all.

so it looks like crap but u can comprehend it kinda.
2017-04-18 22:01:58
imt did just as good, if not better than heroic at katowice. G2 stomped HR at starladder and arguably had the harder team at quarters losing to the eventual champions.
2017-04-18 22:08:27
they wouldnt base seeding on moral victories like "g2 went out in quarters and HR went out in semis but g2 had the much harder opponent". they would probably just take the result as is, which is the only thing that makes sense.
2017-04-18 22:14:36
Not saying they should, just saying that group B definately has the better teams
2017-04-19 02:40:54
we have no idea how c9 will do after ska has been out for so long and them not having a permanent IGL, and we also dont know how liquid will do with twistzz now and they also still have BOT jdm.
we dont even know if they'll be better than fucking lg.
2017-04-19 15:00:02
same logic applies to gambit and hr. we dont know if hr at starladder was a fluke, we dont know if gambit will show up, they have falen off.
2017-04-19 22:04:18
that was recently though. c9 and liquid have no results to show for at all.
2017-04-19 23:00:10
Does it not make sense to judge a team on how theyve been recently?
2017-04-19 23:51:05
yeah it does. thats why i judge gambit and HR differently than c9 and liquid. bcs gambit was good a while back, HR is on the rise, liquid and c9 are nothing at all. or am i forgetting any notable lan performances in 2017
2017-04-19 23:54:16
C9 has the closet 16-6 game ever against astralis /s
2017-04-20 03:31:23
Ez hr
2017-04-18 20:38:01
HR, Gambit
G2, IMT

HR-IMT 2-1
G2-Gambit 2-0

G2-HR 2-1
2017-04-18 20:38:36
gambit? i arent think that. ppl always think heroic are some sort of pushover bunch of scrubs but if u think about it it wouldnt really be surprising if they won that group.
2017-04-18 22:03:04
We'll simply see about that, my heroic friend.
2017-04-18 22:32:52
LUL, if G2 can't win this tier 3 event please disband.
2017-04-18 20:44:02
Let's Go Cloud9 !! :)
2017-04-18 20:45:30
another EZ semi-final for HR.
2017-04-18 20:48:31
C9 gonna win this!
2017-04-18 20:48:59
G2 should disband if they drop a map at this event
2017-04-18 20:52:24
They will fall to Gambit right off the bat.

G2 vs C9

the winner is B4
2017-04-18 23:59:40
if G2 doesnt win it they should disband
2017-04-19 00:06:45
with best-of-one matches in the Upper Bracket and best-of-three clashes in the Lower Bracket.

This will remove all the luckers from contention.
2017-04-19 01:28:38
still mad lel
2017-04-19 10:21:24
if sk vp and teams like these go out in groups...and i have to watch cringeworthy bo3 games of teams like north heroic gambit etc...i will be mad ofcourse.
2017-04-19 21:20:12
Except Gambit and especially North are better than VP
2017-04-26 01:12:56
nice fucking groups, all the best teams in the B group
2017-04-19 02:05:10
If G2 doesn't win this...
