My flair is not bias, I support both teams equally. EG is just more exciting due to returning players and being the second top 10 NA team for the first time in a year.
baiter: appliedmathematics>NA CS
Both shit, but Liquid is lesser shit.
I think Liquid will be better unless Cerq really gets his shit together and Nitr0 sucks ass
I would say Liquid that EliGE and oSee are better than Brehze and Cerq, both just haven't had form recently. I would also say that Rush may actually be a better support, since shox has not often played the support role. The thing that conerns me with both teams is their IGLs. Nitr0 could very well be out of date, and I still don't trust Stew as an IGL
Lol what a question.
Liquid BY FAR. Funny thing is that EG won't even be second best NA team since Extra Salt got a pretty decent roster and I doubt EG can beat them.
2. Extra Salt
to be very honest the best team is the extra salt core which will go to COL
nitr0 > Stewie if Stewie was better he would have been the IGL in 2019.
ELiGE > Brezhe ELiGE obviously one of the best NA players
NAF > automatic LOL
oSee > cerq fresh talent vs washed talent
shox = RUSH shox is obviously more legendary but I think they cancel each other out with
what they bring to the table
rush is definitely better than shox
I’d say liquid has a higher ceiling but also a lower floor, I think eg will be 15-10 whereas liquid will be somewhere between 20-5
EG is ofc better but how is Brehze a paycheck stealer who played valorant all day when he only had a rumor that he was going to valorant. Didn’t stream it all the time like Elige
Lurker/Anchor: NAF >= Autimatic
Hard to say, would prefer EG personally
auti and rush are concerning
Liquid because of shoxieJESUS
This EG team will not do well imo. Liquid don't look amazing but I would expect them to do better than EG.
Liquid slightly more better than EG imo
Applied maths hard af brah
elige>brehze as of now. they can even up later but i havent seen in form brehze in over a year
lmao eg wont even get top10
Auti washed valorant
Stewie average at best
Cerq was shit
Brehze is good
Rush is bot
Liquid for sure. Max rank EG will get is top 20. Well, top 15 if lucky.
This EG roster is the NA equivalent to Last Dance - only delusional fans living in the past think these washed up bots have any chance of making it into top20. Even if they buy a bunch of free invites into tier1 tournaments, they'll remain 'a bye' for any decent cis/eu team.
If they actually competed in european t2-t3 scene they wouldnt even make playoffs of lootbet cups and shit like that most of the time. Top30 teams like Mad Lions or Eternal Fire would wipe the floor with them.
This Liquid roster might cause some upsets and stay bottom half of top10 if Nitr0 is not a complete joke (big if). Otherwise they'll have to find a new IGL and struggle for the rest of the year because they're a bunch of primadonna manchildren.
TL is much better imo,but they can't be in top 5,there is big competition right now for top.
So top 10 is more realistic for TL,for EG i don't think they can be even in top 15,so probably they will be like Extra Salt last year.
this is such a bad comparrison, bro elige is better and nitr0 is better, and naf is one of the best lurkers, im not biased but what ur saying is just stupid.
EG has way too many question marks on basically every player but stewie performance wise (who himself has big question marks on if he can actually be a good IGL). The one upside they have is a good coach in Malek, but there's no guarantee that all or even any of these players will be at a top 10 level. Complexity is basically every NA hot prospect minus osee and everyone who bounced to valorant. They'll probably start off slow, but this is a super young team with potentially a massive ceiling.
Liquid has Elige and NAF, enough said. If osee finds his comfort, that's a world class core, and even if he doesn't, I sincerely doubt that they'll ever be out of tier 1
OSee Naf Elige trio is way too strong. They'll probably be better unless EG has crazy teamwork.
osee is wayyyyyyy better than cerq
do you seriously think washed up brehze and cerq + auti will be better than elige naf osee
elige > brehze
naf > auto
osee > cerq
shox > rush
nitr0 = stewie
adreN = malek
malek couldnt get g2 to win a single tournament even with the best rifler in the world. do you seriously think he can get 0.98 rating awper cerq to do anything LMAO
Extra salt/complexity better then both tbh
nitr0 will make liquid great again, one way or another
If analysts were always right, no one would watch games.
Liquid will be fine, and honestly they may look very, very similar to the grand slam Liquid very quickly.
I also believe that EG will be a dumpster fire and ES will surpass them easily to be the #2 team in NA.
It’s gonna be coL at the end of the year
This was the most biased EG thread I could read, you saying "my flair is not bias" is so bs
anyways, only true top1 NA team is Faze
In order for us to know that we would have to see them play,
On paper I still put Liquid above EG but we don't know how the chemistry of these teams will work.
"Lurker/Anchor: NAF >= Autimatic
Support: Shox >= RUSH"
NAF >>>>> autimatic, even if autimatic hits peak form. NAF is the best NA player right now, and autimatic will be a liability for EG as he'll effectively be forced into a third star role, which I doubt he can keep up with.
shox <<<<<<<< RUSH, shox isn't a support player, RUSH is. Simple as that. Assuming RUSH gets the roles he's best fit for RUSH will be the better support player by a long shot.
between both roster changes i hope both do well. i think liquid is starting in a better place than eg but im not gonna sleep on eg either they still have alot of potential
