LOLOLOLOL There is a brazilian team called "Ilha da Macacada", a rough translation would be "Monkeysness' Island" or "Island of the Apes" or even "Monkey around Island". Even though it's clearly a joke, I guess we deserve to be called monkeys... I mean, look at that fucking name... lol

turn the worst thing they say into a joke, how else can they hurt you? "We're called monkeys". Dude, I've never heard it in real life, only on this forum full of 12yo virgin cunts but thanks for the translation, name is for sure quite... original :)

Only 50 000$?
2016-08-04 05:53
I'm surprised TyLoo isn't there. North America — 1st. Echo Fox & 2nd. TK Europe — 1st. MK & 2nd. ENCE Brazil — Unsure, don't know enough about the good teams Australia — Chiefs Asia — VG.CyberZEN South Africa — Bravado (maybe Carbon)

tyloo forfeit the playoffs?
2016-08-04 08:47
The rules forced TyLoo to forfeit the playoff due to TyLoo has dropped 4 matches in regular stage, with busy summer in schedule for TyLoo.
2016-08-04 09:19
Ah okay, thanks
2016-08-04 21:51
Athletico instead of Chiefs, g3neration X for Brazil and then I agree with you
2016-08-04 09:15
Don't recognise the players on the Athletico team, although I did see the team doing well somewhere. Always thought Chiefs were top 3 down under. Now you mention it, I just checked out the g3x roster and I remember some of the players, like kNg. They seem alright. I reckon MK will win it, with Echo Fox just falling short.
2016-08-04 21:59
Athletico won the ESL ANZ championships over chiefs, parallax and exile5. Although, the chiefs now have Moey instead of Mungo which is definitely an upgrade.

LDLC disband confirmed as they were 1st or 2nd in the rankings, MK and ENCE should go through EU qualifier, but you never know if Spirit updated cheats.
