What's the hardest number to say? 70. Because after 69, your mouth is full.
2015-07-23 16:05
+70
2015-07-25 04:25
+1. Several teams from the top are missing here to call this champions of champions. Bring in TSM, C9, Navi and anyone else and let's go!
2015-07-23 13:08
read the article
2015-07-23 13:13
He read the article, he's just making a statement that it could be a better tournament with the teams he's talking about. That only 2 of the top 4/5 teams are in it is his complaint.
2015-07-23 13:32
If you read the article, you'll understand that "champion of champions" in this case means champions of Gfinity. They wont invite a team that never attended any Gfinity event in a year or got kicked out of group stage everytime they played at Gfinity.
2015-07-23 13:57
NIP an VP? envyus? LMAO! There should be tsm, navi, c9 and fnatic. It shows how gfinity's format is retarded.
2015-07-23 16:21
Agreed
2015-07-23 16:34

2015-07-23 17:54
fnatic fnatic fnatic, we know they are bestest no point to showing it once again. We want tier 2 teams like VP NaVi, EnVy, TSM, eventually NIP, but i wouldn't say c9 they are still tier3 even though they been in finals at the lastest tournament.
2015-07-26 16:33
kidding me right :D
2015-09-23 13:24
Omg just die already.
2015-09-23 13:55
Or maybe just major winners ? :>

2015-07-23 13:32
The top four teams from the previous Gfinity events
2015-07-23 15:16
I know, but it was since he wanted to add tsm and c9, then I just asked why he didn't want to add na'vi
2015-07-23 15:19
C9 didnt do well at the 2/3 gifnity events they attended. And yes i got your point now :)
2015-07-23 15:22
round difference is a terrible idea... GSL format but with all matches BO3 and final BO5 is the best system if you ask me...
2015-07-23 14:56
TSM and C9 aren't champions, this is obviously for teams that have won majors only.

meh only 4 teams?
2015-07-23 12:49
yeh, seems boring tbh, no upsets can take place.
2015-07-23 13:10
Yeah. 3 of the 4 aren't even in the top 4. It may be interesting to fans of those teams, though.
2015-07-23 13:35
ROFL dude, you have 3 teams from top 3 and NiP
2015-09-22 10:31
Your enjoyment comes from upsets, rather than the quality of play?
2015-07-23 14:09
but if i wanted a higher quality of play i would bring in the best teams.
2015-07-23 14:16
4 of the top 7 teams seems fine to me.
2015-07-23 15:29
you say "rather than"..cant an upset-match have quality of play?
2015-07-23 14:57
that doesn't matter, you said the whole tournament seems boring because there won't be one upset.

lol 100k LAN and your gonna invite 4 teams? zzzzzzzz
2015-07-23 12:59
Just waiting for all the "short breaks" but hey we'll see the new EnVy play.
2015-07-23 12:59
You're thinking of ESWC..
2015-07-23 13:24
Yea I think I might be mistaking as I haven't watched many matches lately (may be due to it being really boring to have to watch adds all the time instead of the match)
2015-07-23 13:36
nip lmao vp lmao
2015-07-23 13:02
They are going to play 1 half a day...
2015-07-23 13:03
Theres a gfinity between now and then so hopefully see more teams invited, plus the winner of the UK Championship. Maybe not.
2015-07-23 13:04
Nice now if only they can get their production act together
2015-07-23 13:04
the only thing that can save this event is bo5 matches and bo7 final else having 4 teams is terrible

People forget to read this : "The top four teams from the previous Gfinity events, fnatic, Ninjas in Pyjamas, EnVyUs and Virtus.pro, will face off for the title of Gfinity Champions 2015 and the bulk of the $100,000 prize pool." So it is justified.
2015-07-23 13:07
no tsm? tier3 tournament. vp gonna win it
2015-07-23 13:08
I wonder if they made enough room for 5 players yet
2015-07-23 13:08
virtus pro XD
2015-07-23 13:10
NiP finally Top 4 in lan kappa
2015-07-23 13:12
ahah
2015-09-15 17:19
Why isn't there one fucking organisation that has a good tournament format? Makes me sick. I want a 2 groups of 8 in a bo2 vs each other and then a double elimination bo3 playoffs in upper and lower bracket. Top 4 of each group upper, rest lower. Make it happen Valve you idiots!!

How are all of these shitty organizations getting so much money to host tournaments?
2015-07-23 13:14
gfinity shitty... lmao, go look up their net worth on the stock exchange you ignorant child.
2015-07-23 13:21
It's a penny stock, hahahaha, barely a legitimate company.
2015-07-23 14:44
Jesus you're stupid... They have a pretty big backing actually, that's how they're able to host big money tournaments. I guess your pea brain can't comprehend that though
2015-07-23 20:36
Yes, and I was wondering who the fuck in their right mind would back them. For what reason? The only thing that comes to mind is the growth of esports and csgo and that people want to get on the bandwagon. Their tournaments are shit. Their staff and casters are shit. Their production quality is shit. Their platform is shit, nobody's using it. (I'M ON IT!!! Their commercial is shit as well.)
2015-07-24 01:46
wow 100k for fnatic for winning vs t2 teams
2015-07-23 13:16
I enjoyed the lastest 2 Gfinity's tournaments.
2015-07-23 13:24
Nip slump envyus adapting to new lineup Vp slump Obv Ez fnatic
2015-07-23 13:24
so ez for nip
2015-07-23 13:24
100k for a LAN with only four teams? Why? prize pool should be 30-40k tops for something so underwhelming. They could throw a real LAN afterwards with the leftovers. Where does GFINITY find all this cash anyway?
2015-07-23 13:24
Fnatic would never attend a 30-40k event sorry.
2015-07-23 13:50
negative. They have attended LAN events with less and played in many online tournaments for much less. fnatic organization and players are smart. Two days for some ez money is still ez money

2015-07-23 13:36
With TSM, NaVi, and C9 not there, this should be pretty easy for Fnatic. And a nice little payday for them too! They should just have three matches: two semifinals and the final, and be done with it.
2015-07-23 13:37
-VP +TSM BEST TOURNAMENT
2015-07-23 13:38
lmao not with NiP in here they fucking suck as much as VP lelelele -NiP -VP +TSM +C9 ez good tournament retarded Gfinity tbh
2015-07-23 13:40
- NV + Navi By imo a lan with 4 teams just no interest
