I'm not saying EGs lineup was optimal, and I would have liked a closer match.
But saying that 16-6 and 16-7 doesn't make for a "crushing victory" is simply a false statement.
Had you written "mTw wouldn't have won be those numbers had lurppis been there instead of tubby, and a more seasoned player rather than dboorn", I'd be inclined to agree.
As the commentator said : You can use it as an explanation but not as an excuse. If you start a post that says "so much rape to come by EG" but afterwards come up with that then thats just being lame dude :D
your dumb you realize that EG looks like a completely new team when dboorN was suppose to be some "aimstar" for gfn that was suppose to instantly start doing well. but obviously NOT. also without lurp this team is beyond lost and has no idea how to play cs and gfn being a strat caller before actually helped this team.
You might as well sign WOP up to international tournaments then, and see how they'll do. They'll suck.
The problem is that USA don't have that many good players any more. That's why tubby was a stand-in a WCG, and lurpiss is in the starting lineup.
If Irukanji wouldn't be a massive downgrade from lurppis, you can be sure they would have already made the trade...
But he is.
Wait... What are you saying?
I'm saying that the golden days of 3D and coL are over. The U.S doesn't have that many good players anymore.
Only one american team can compete internationally, and they aren't (for above reason) composed entirely of Americans.
they dont need good players. they need a stratcaller in witch we have... irukandji they got everybody else to be a good team. your points are invalid sir. and to say "drop Storm" you have got to be a idiot
So n0thing, fRoD, Irukanji, dboorn and storm/tubby?
In that case, I'd wager such a lineup could probably compete internationally in one or two years. Iru and dboorn much too inexperienced at this point.
Also, only n0thing, and fRoD (on a good day) are maybe top30 players in the world at this point. Iru and dboorn won't get there anytime soon, and storm and tubby will never reach it.
Look at our discussion... I'm sure it will become apparent that you're the idiot. Stop being an asshole.
U.S.A 1.6 CS isn't good any longer. The majority of the "top" players are shit compared to other countries, and the "top team" is maybe top10 in the world.
