I think the reason Na’Vi lost is because they had no motivation to win. Right now, Na’Vi knows all they had to do was make the playoffs for a guaranteed #2 spot in CIS RMR, which guarantees a legends spot at the major. There’s no point in them being 1st place in RMR, as that gives the same reward: a legends spot.
VP on the other hand are on the brink of not even being contenders, so this tournament is huge for them. However, Na’Vi and Spirit have already locked in their Legends spots, so VP is going to have to pick up the scraps.
Motivation to play has been a big issue for Na’Vi as of late. I know you incels don’t know much about relationships, so you need to be aware that a breakup (s1mple and his girl) can have major emotional and mental ramifications. Especially when she works within Na’Vi.
tl;dr Anyways, Na’Vi got rekt today, so hopefully they perform better in blast.
I don't think online play is the biggest issue.. I was very excited for EPL and cologne. In my opinion oversaturation is the biggest factor that's deteriorating the viewing experience. You have one tournament right after the other with tier 1 matches every single day. When matches happen at such regular frequency, they lose a lot of meaning and hype.
what a dumb excuse "no motivation to win" like wtf is that mindset????
If you're a professional player for a top team, you and your team should always be trying to win no matter what.
Stop trying to act like this is supposed to be a good thing "We already have legend spot so lets not win" then don't even bother playing the match and just forfeit if you're gonna waste everyones time because you and your team have no motivation to win.
what a fucking braindead excuse
Those are excuses? excuses as to why the lost "according to your analysis"
They are a PROFESSIONAL team those shouldn't be an excuse to lose motivation.
As a professional player/team they should always be aiming to win their matches.
lol everyone keeps praising esl for their world class competition, but who cares about playing for like 500 more RMR points (when you're first, and being second gets you to legends) and 20k...
very exciting games, everyone playing their best to get that $$$!!1
