+Could have biggest crowd ever.
+Timezones work great for both dominant scene continents, America-EU.
+Wont have visa issues.
+Brazilian Passion is great, nothing bad about them being loud.
-Threats, security, and if a brazilian team doesnt reach the finals.. i dont know if it be full the arena, i expect it would be still.
And to travel to Brazil from EU is expensive as fuck. So it's unlikely to see many fans from EU.
Man, I'm from Rio and I went. I took a Airbnb(good experience).
Yeah, the food, in the event, was really high, very expensive. If blast come to SP again on 2020, I will eat a good breakfast, because the event went until 22 +/-
I don't like Rio and I can say about that because I live here. It's not as everyone know, but still degusting be here.
I prefer to go to SP, like was on Blast pro series and I went, watched. It was perfect (except the 0-10 from MIBR HAHAHAHHAHAHA)
Seems like most saying Sao Paulo is much better than Rio de Janeiro. I guess ESL will know the best option..
Only thing i seem to read is that Rio is much worse in security and as a city, but dont rly know. :D
I did hear they might use a football stadium called allianz arena in sao paulo which would be crazy
Rio is an Oasis undergoing a civil war. Sao Paulo is a concrete jungle, but it is safe and rich. Rio has always been the city of tourism and Sao Paulo the financial center. But I would be afraid to go to Rio now, and I'm Brazilian.
I hear so many of u saying Rio sucks, and its shit. nice to hear such honesty :D (sometimes i think brazilians are very proud of their country and stuff, and hardly critisize their own things) but yeah. :D
I guess ESL will do whats best, i dont know. If they get told not to go to rio i dont think they should go.
