omfg,that Tempo Storm Line-Up looks solid as f on paper.I mean ROCA,Ryx and stanJesus can play 3 vs.5 :D
Also they have ShahzaM who was rly on fire in this Tempo Storm team,coming back to his Denial form.
I like stanislaw nice guy but i dont see him as a very good leader
arya is one of the best igls in NA and you can see that with the team he is on right now. His team has no skill but some how they still do well
Bringing out the insults early I see. In general I would consider Liquid #2 right now, excluding Keyd. One map, heck, one series doesn't suddenly make a team less than they were. Using that logic former Gplay>EnvyUS.
Also: *then If you're going to toss expletives in my direction, I would appreciate that you use better grammar. I prefer people to swear at me in a more articulate and interesting way. I don't swear generally, but I often do marvel at how creative people can get using such harsh words.
Gplay was already an experienced team and have been together for a while and beating other T1 teams. While this new TS is just 1 week old and already took a map off one of the best NA teams when they were up 13-11 ct side.
I don't recall Gplay consistently beating "T1" teams(I really wish tiers weren't a thing, they are so arbitrarily defined), but that is aside from my point. My point is that after one game, you wouldn't say they are better than EnvyUS, right? I certainly wouldn't, because individual maps, and even best of threes are subject to upsets. That can happen. The same thing here. One map hardly means anything. If you're coming to conclusions from one map, then I can all but assure you that your reasoning is shaky, if not completely flawed because it's hardly any information.
As far as Tempo Storm goes, they are a new team, but it is worth noting that Roca and Rush have played together before, and the rest of the team has been together for the season. They aren't nearly as raw of a team as you imply. That said however, it is just one series. Hardly wise to make any evaluation from that.
Roca was an absolute monster on CT side locking B down (edit: and on T side, shit). Rush was a monster on T side opening sites. Shahzam, just as like his stint during Cloud 9, was always the last one into a site (never initiated on T side) and usually last one alive (and never closing rounds out). Ryx and Stan were on for the ride.
I will include: I didn't watch the last five rounds.
