You're watching events solely for the panel?
2016-05-05 14:56
Not like he has any players from his country to watch they're all shit
2016-05-05 15:15
seriously... would you watch T3 teams 'battling' without any piece of quality the talent line-up? BTW: in my timezone matches start at 10PM... simply not worth it
2016-05-05 16:44
Tiers are completely subjective views and I don't really make mine. One top5 team, 1 top10 team, 3 of them are in the top20, these are mostly good teams in my opinion. I'll watch this because I enjoy watching top teams compete on LAN. And frankly I don't really care for who's casting or analyzing as long as there's no pansy, and even if she's here I'll just mute the stream and watch with some music.
2016-05-05 17:57
+1 mate. Panel can only improve the tournament because i just turn them off otherwise.Sometimes those "lesser" tournaments are a welcome change
2016-05-06 21:43
ynk has some good analysis, but partnered with Harvey.. Ynk hard carry
2016-05-05 16:09
ynk is good, but in duos/trios. now he's the solo 'knowledge tank' and I think it will be a mess
2016-05-05 16:41
sorry for the long reply was playing football :P Yeah you are probably right, I guess we'll see soon enough.

Miss Harvey, is an analyst, the same female silver player who suggested she needed an agent....honestly I am not watching this for that reason alone. She doesn't belong there
