“Flamie terminated the contract with NAVI and became a free agent. He immediately received an offer. <...> I cannot reveal what this team is. I will say that there are several tier-1 level players there. The rest of the players are also close. "
hard disagree. NA is much more competitive, they just have one goated team. below sentinels the competition is great. EU just looks more competitive because they haven't had a consistently successful team since beta.
No, there are just more teams in EU that are all at a higher tier level that are more competitive than in NA.
Let’s be real here, in NA, it’s Sentinels obviously For #1, 100T for #2 who just gets rolled by Sentinels and #3 is a coin flip. Iceland was v1, but now it’s Envy. A shame to see Vanity lesve v1, thought it was a good project but it reminds me a lot of NA CS bubble. It’s just the same players cycling through rosters hoping one will eventually work. Seems like there is no roster stability in NA. I know he joined two chaos teammates on c9 but still.
What teams are actually considered good though at a t1 level when they aren’t playing NA?
NRG is the only one I can think of.
Faze isn’t good
TSM isn’t good
C9 isn’t good
T1 isn’t good
Luminosity isn’t good
Gen G isn’t good
V1 isn’t good
XSET and Rise are alright.
yeah i guess some kind of CIS shuffle will happen .. they just have to clear the questions of contracts and buy outs, and who to which team.
I think we will see some changes to VP, Spirit and maybe to others like ForZe, Entropiq
faze the dead team LUL.
Faze is the end of hope for so many careers. Rain is done, Karrigan almost retire. Olof retired before waste 2 years with Niko as IGL.
COld washed up.
The reality is only 3-4 teams are in the competition for top trophies the rest are paycheckstealer.
And Faze is a whole paycheck steal
