''The most notable omission from the tournament is Natus Vincere, as the CIS squad has seemingly decided to prioritize the $425,000 BLAST Premier Fall Final and the $1,000,000 BLAST Premier World Final over the $250,000 IEM that happens in between the two. Worth noting is that the current No. 1 team is the only one that has already locked in their spots at both BLAST events, putting them in a unique situation.''
if they said they won't win it cuz they don't have enough break it means they won't win it if they play it
Furia and Entropiq also skip? Otherwise why would they not be invited based on ESL World Rankings as they rank higher than BIG and OG?
Navi org usually lets them skip a couple events every year.
g2 could finally win something
if you read blade itw they need 7/10 days of rest and works before go to another event.
Yes, so finally we will have some interesting event :)
they skipped iem summer as well, no surprise here.
they got tired of winning events and they are giving away this one to a worse team, good boys navi
Maybe it's time for g2 to win something
navi actually 500 iq
have time to prepare instead of playing non stop tournaments.
When astralis gave priority to blast events, they were called blastralis, what about Navi now?
bad move, gives zywoo his mvp
ez pez for chikito gambito
They even skipped IEM Summer.
Ig all top teams should Follow Navi's steps to skip few events which are not so prestigious just to concentrate mainly on the Bigger events of the year and unleash most of their Strats in those events.
But sadly teams like VP, Gambit and Heroic are not so accomplished org that they get invite to those events as they are not partners, so they have to grind throught all events for rankings and then get exhausted when the main events come.
don't get so cocky. Astralis will kill Na'vi before your era starts.
navi are afraid to face Tyloo
its not wise to skip this tournament in contrast to being as successful as possible to overtake Astralis’s dominance,Na vi should attend everything while they have the power to do it,nothing lasts forever,S1mple should have added another MVP to his collection
they need break 5-10 days as blade said.
you gotta leave out the scraps for the rest of the scene.
i mean they always used to skip smaller esl events such as iem summer/winter (previously called chicago, sydney). Made more sense in the past when we had big events nearly every 2 weeks and not so much in 2021
how do you manage to look more stupid than the average HLTV user, you amaze me
S0mple scared of smooooooooooooooooooya, GODLLan and messi
no Na'Vi no excitement ;(
ez event for g2/vitality/gambit.
