Most likely the problem. It seems only european and american teams play worse than expected.
2018-05-01 15:17
Nobody really expected anything from Aussie and Asian teams

+1, this is what happens when you underestimate teams, Grayhound probably did their job at studying SK and the jetlag excuse doesn't work as renegades performed better than expected while being jetlaged

Renegades came from NA and SK are just bad
2018-05-01 15:19
then they should travel there 1 or 2 days earlier. Did really anybody expect anything from Faze, SK and Cloud9? The teams to look for are Astralis, Mouz, Fnatic, Renegades and even NRG

Couldn't travel earlier because of EPL
2018-05-01 15:30
Imagine still using that excuse

What? Being tired? Yeah you really dont need to be fully awake to compete at high level

jetlag does come into play but I think the fact that some of these teams don't compete at a tier 1 or 2 level events often just means that some of the top teams don't know what to expect from them necessarily. also, some of these lower level teams have nothing to lose - they're giving their all and in addition to being able to catch some of these teams off guard because their playstyle is relatively unknown, it provides them with a semi-decent chance off pulling off an upset. SK is in a pretty shitty form and tyloo is known for pulling off upsets, hence why they were able to beat them. Tyloo are also a pretty good team when their players are performing well so I can understand why they've seemed strong so far against C9 Faze haven't been that strong with xizt and you could see in that bo3 against RNG they were praying for their big players to go off. RNG came from NA so jetlag was an issue for them too. RNG's upset was just them playing well and Faze playing at a pretty shitty level when u compare it to their past performances.

True, RNG wasnt that much of an upset But GH though 👀

Just like Faze, SK is in terrible form Also there was most likely an unpredictability factor playing in for GH - I doubt SK knew much about them or researched too far into any of their demos (if they even bothered at all)

Its cuz Australia is upside down so upsets are actually downsets which means they're expected
2018-05-01 15:27
IDK, wasn't tyloo just in eu too losing GODSENT and still they rekting and renegades resides in NA anyway? Actually there hasn't been that many upsets anyway YET that could be said to be about jetlag if we consider this xddd. Only MASSIVE one is SK going out xddddd

Posting your own tweet hoping to get some followers even though you could have easily written the same thing in this thread. This is reddit-tier shitposting.

Sry if i hurt your feelings in any way by posting a link instead of Copy/Paste...
2018-05-01 15:35
renegades live in na but they beat faze so your point is invalid 0/8

the Faze one cant really be put down to jetlag as renegades had to fly over from the US aswell
