Should SA and NA consider creating a lineup together, in hopes of developing a true contender in tier 1? While I am hopeful for both Complexity and PaiN to continue to develop into solid teams, is it time for the Americas to create a lineup together again? The last time (I can remember at least) this occurred, was when SK transitioned to MIBR, and during that process, let TACO and zews leave to Liquid, and kicked boltz, to add recent Major winners Stewie2K and Tarik. While disappointing, the lineup actually won FalleN and fer's last tournament victory, their only one since 2017.
Currently both scenes are struggling in tier 1 and are trying to develop their tier 2 scenes. They have pretty similar issues, and perhaps their best shot is together. Let's say, for example, Liquid decided EU wasn't the right move, and instead pursued a team of North and South Americans, keeping on NAF from their current roster. Obviously, I have no insider knowledge of roster dynamics/changes, but I would assume for the right price, virtually any NA/SA player would be available.
South American Options: Biguzera, Skullz, KSCERATO, yuurih, insani, dgt, Lucaozy, etc.
North American Options: ELIGE, Grim, Junior, HexT, Autimatic, malbsMd, etc.
I think a pretty damn good team could be made with these options. Ofc not all are realistic options, like Grim, KSCERATO, etc. but you know, just throwing names out there. I think it would be pretty interesting.
