You can't answer to that so you call delusional, lol. It obviously counts, it has groups, playoffs and finals. Its on the list of trophies of the players in hltv trophy tab. Keep malding because vitality lost to NIP
Astralis wasn't playing most of the tournaments that Liquid won in 2019, they don't count?
Navi didn't play IEM dallas, they don't count.
Cope harder, my friend. Its on the list of trophies, its you who is trying to cope this fact.
it counts as a minor trophy, just as funspark or roobet do. there are criterias for this
so yes, of course it counts as a trophy, another question is - what kind of trophy? so you should word your thoughts more precisely
technically, major itself is a qualifier for blast world final. so are blast spring & fall finals. all iem/esl pro league tournaments are indirectly iem cologne/katowice qualifiers
if there's a distinct winner and enough top teams in contention it does count as a trophy. there are 3 tiers of hltv-recognized trophies and rmr's are bronze (the 3rd) while having all top teams in attendance so it's fairly balanced
Both events had basically the same attendance. Are you somehow pretending that team try less because the event also give RMR points? Seems like the opposite would be true.
NIP also won the Dubai tournament btw. But I guess only events picked by you count. So NIP has never won an event ever.
Its not my opinion, it’s a question. You seem to imply that the event was somehow easier to win because it gave RMR points, why is that? Would teams magically try less to win when a major is on the line?
I mean yeah, liquid had a mickey mouse run if u really look deeper into it. Won most of their events while astralis took a break.
But my point was that EU rmr is not a big international tournament, so is CIS rmr or NA. One thing is when only navi's missing but another is when whole regions are.
IEM Fall is not regular like IEM summer, it's just called this name bc it's an RMR event held by ESL in Fall while major TO is PGL. IEM summer and IEM winter are annually but IEM Fall is not and with region limitations.
Your point makes sense tho.
so? no one said it was a big throphy it was a shitty tournament, but it still shows potential if they get devve back or another player who actually can play awp properly and they could get eiither es3tag/Lekr0/Krimz as support
