more chances for small team, fair
Its probably unfair for the "good" teams like Team Liquid, mibr,...
Because if they are in the group they would destroy everyone
And fair for the smaller teams because they are getting chances to come in the ko phase
Yeah we latins but not spanish latins like the rest of latin america, maybe they are givin spanish-latins a chance
It's no fair. It's stupid to put all of the good teams in group D. Is it because theyd shit all over the NA teams ?
denail threw. Im not a bettor, but the lil subtile plays from them gave it away. They gotta learn to throw better if they wanna throw lmao.
They have bwen giving sa an spot for 2 Seasons or sth like that, so of course its Fair.
ESL is not stupid, making sure at least a latam team will attend the finals, will increase their viewership, attract more advertises and more money for them. It's simple to understand
well it has been same in past too, idea has been to get teams from different regions in not just EU and NA residing teams (as we can see asia, oceania still got their spots much like south america, how is it different exactly?...), only difference this time is that they added them part of americas besides for getting 1 spot by default.
Latam has had a slot in the Global EPL since 2 seasons ago, are you gonna complain about the addition of Asia and AU//NZ teams as well? what's the point of a "Global" league if it's only NA and EU?
EDIT: another reason I just realised, how would you do the relegations if a Latam team ended up last in an NA group if that team doesn't play in NA? That's ridiculous
I think it is fair. If ESL wants to give to the best South american team the opportunity to compite in a good lan tournament, this is the best way to pick the correct one. Of course is much easy to qualify if we compare the level of group D teams with the ones in other groups. Other teams have opportunities pretty much every month to qualify to minor/premier/mayor events while in south america the opportunities are just few.
