I did my bet 4 days ago still was around 1.3 so i comboed it with spirit win with was 1.72. So for me it actually raised a bit, right now 1.36 for liquid.
2018-09-05 19:21
1.3 already 3 days ago? Dafuq. Spirit at 1.72 is also a dafuq, but a little more understandable.

Well you know it varies from site to site, and obviously on the day when games start, odds starts to change because people start to bet. Spirit went from 1.72 to 1.46 today, but yeah, liquid all the time were at ~1.3 thats why i got surprised you got it for 1.57
2018-09-05 19:40
I know. And I know. But 1.72 is really high for Spirit. Only seen it around 1.5~.

And in my case 1.57 liquid with optic is very high :D The reason why its worth to have accounts in few betting sites i guess.

Jugi is one of the most consistent awper in eu, in my eyes better than kennyS, draken or oskar. Maybe not often these 4k,5k rounds but can very good hold angles and doesnt miss important shots

Sure. But im sure, if OpTic as a team would improve, jugi individually would improve aswell and reach his old level again... he isnt the guy who can carry a whole team, even in heroic he didnt do something like 1v9, he always had niko and snappi with him atleast

This Optic lineup has been shit if we take into account the players in the rosters. You've got players of the like of k0nfig/cajunb who have played at the highest level for quite some time and also Jugi who is dominant against tier 2 opponents and can also show some good stuff against tier 1 opponents. Finally you've got Snapping who previously did a nice job in Heroic making its way to the tier 1 scene.

ESL can keep Cologne tyvm, they do an excellent job each year. ELEAGUE is pretty bland even if the production is smooth.
2018-09-05 23:38
but then we will have super cologne. dragon lores will be dropped irl

2018-09-05 23:45
i mean they could've waited till the stream is back to show the round but i guess the players cried to have it finished asap and for good reasons

they detained an hour at the beginning, then there was a lot of pauses during the games due to failures of devices/fault from the network, fell even twitch in 10 minutes, is that even legal? =DD

2018-09-05 23:57
Konfig is leaving this roster before the year is out. This team talent wise should be able to compete but man they are awful.

Update: All networks at Twickenham Stadium are currently offline. We are working hard to restore the connection, and the broadcast feed. Liquid-OpTic finished 16-4 to Liquid, and was completed before networking problems occurred Credit Faceit twitter
2018-09-06 00:09
Dont blame individual players for OpTics success it's clear they have no structure or drive to be a good team as a whole.
