"they're not top 3 right now." "right now." Overall I think they deserve a place on the top 3 teams. Every one has times when they are down. Once again; "right now."

Yeah, that's true. Ex6 reads Pronax like a fucking book. Hell, if he did as well against everyone else, Titan could contend for being #1.

Unless they get their shit together on CT. In their 2nd game against fnatic on ESEA they literally got 3 rounds in total as CT.
2015-05-06 04:33

The problem is not ex6 strats, its that their team lacks the firepower to hold back pushes from skill stacked teams like Nv, fnatic, tsm. Its why they rely on such complicated strats and good reads from ex6 on t side. Unless someone like KennyS starts carrying on ct side they wont get that many rounds
2015-05-06 04:56
Dignitas just beat Titan 16-8 yesterday and Hellraisers/flipside are fairly even. Given NVs form lately, group1 is the harder group.
