Fnatic: Olof is washed up and just came back to FaZe starting lineup, KRiMZ, Flusha and JW in Fnatic and Pronax is retired.
VP: Snax is in a tier 4 Polish team, TaZ and NEO in T4 Polish team and Pasha is basically retired and streamer for Liquid.
C9: SKA retired, n0thing retired an analyst, Shroud retired and streamer, Auti is in Gen.G and Stewie in Liquid.
"And finishing 3rd isnt an achievment." It is. Look at their team page lol. Its basically a "bronze medal".
"with 2 standins with koosta as igl, ur not a top tier team" Duh? But yet they manage to beat some decent teams and with more practice they could improve even more.
"the online thing is just an excuse" lol 0/8 b8.
Its WAY different playing infront of thousands of people compared with sitting in your bedroom lol.
