but thats just what im saying. c9 havent been playing like that the last few tournaments, so you cant rank them higher than teams who have been consistently achieving more in the past 6-8 months. c9 have one good event, so they are as high as they should be on the rankings right now. if they make a long run in the next tournament they attend and beat other top teams again, then yes they should go up.
as for your karrigan hate. i dont think its justified. hes an incredibly smart player and a good ingame leader. yes hes made a few bad calls, hes had bad plays. but find me an ingame leader who consistently performs as well as their teams stars. there isnt one. he does his job and that is to direct and utilize his players of which he has some of the best in the world. faze lost in the final because they underestimated c9, they made a lot of mistakes, they panicked in situations you'd expect that calibre of players not to. the pressure was overwhelming for karrigan, niko, guardian. i mean did you even see the winning play? guardian completely exposed to ruins and ct spawn peeking banana in a 1v2, when he knew a player was ct. guess what im saying is, the loss wasn't on karrigan alone. not even close. he did his best. if anything you could say niko drastically underperformed. he had only 9 kills more than karrigan across all 3 maps, and 1 more death.
