2016-09-12 17:41
I would have liked to see at least NiP here since they won Starseries. I don't know when Pyth comes back and I want to see if they can win another tourney with Maikelele.
2016-09-12 17:59
It would be too easy for them

Moddii is from Sweden. +All the swedes are tear one except Fnc and Epsilon and Fnc just need pracc to get better with the new team. And Epsilon didnt qualify.
2016-09-12 18:37
wasnt there invites? Epsilon has wrecked 3 of those euro teams...
2016-09-12 20:25
There was a qualifier for 2 of the spots. Epsilon got beat by Hellraisers in the semi-finals of their side.
2016-09-12 20:31
Fnatic is tier 1 right now, Godsent isn't though.
2016-09-12 20:31

Arguably top tear. They have not played on LAN. So we will wait and see. And after ESL One NY we will know. Yeah im with you. Godsent need practice aswell. But they have 4/5 members of the Pronax era. So they just need a little time to sync. But Fnc has a younger lineup wich needs pracc to increase their skill level.

Yeah, I like Heroic's chances in this one. Ex-SK is a really good team now that they won Power-LAN and did well in SL, beating Astralis again making them 5-0 overall 3-0 on LAN in the past month or so and nearly beat dignitas again. Wait you aren't talking about them? Oh...

France p2l 
don't cry in my kebab plz
2016-09-12 17:04
And they explained why reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/4z.. TL:DR Dignitas gets invited because they are atleast ranked in the HLTV top20 because thats the most non-biased way to invite teams, doesnt matter if SpaceSoldiers won over them.
2016-09-12 17:59
yea the only chance is direct invites for space soldiers to attend lan tournaments lolz they cant even beat t18 teams on qualifiers
2016-09-12 17:32
Yeah, if SpaceSoldiers deserved to attend, they wouldve won the qualifer.
2016-09-12 18:00
same logic can be applied to dignitas. they lost 2-0 in the qualifier vs ss
2016-09-13 22:04
The difference is that a team backed out, so they took some1 that was already at the top 20 rankins on HLTV. The qualifier results are irrelevant.

They literally came to city like hours before first game which didn't go well and they had another bo1 like half hour later.

Oh that happend really? I thought I heard something like but I wasn't aware to 100% OK that actually explains a bit and Kuben's miss probably have weaken them a little bit more ^.^

2016-09-12 17:56
Yeah they did really look unprepared on their top 2 Maps. And aimwise they really looked like some beginners for the most of the time. Their postplants were awful, that actually has less to do with being prepared?!

But you blame the late flight...VP have never been consistent, id say it was just one of their off tournaments. The late flight sucks, but i dont think thats the reason behind them playing poorly. Preparation cant be blamed on the flight at all, thats stuff that shouldve been done weeks in advance.

With those teams this is pretty much the hardest CGSO Lan ever to predict. All the "top" teams there are capable of massively underperforming (envy/c9/VP) and all random lower teams have great upset potential (heroic/gambit/flipsid3). Pretty much anyone's Lan to win if they play well.

why cant i remember the last time "Heroic" (pretty childish name btw) did something major the last few years. They are a mix, that can upset on a map. Nothing more. HR is an inconsistent pro team that is known by fans of e-sport. Even if the majority of them are hating them for no reason. so, i guess F you is the last thing to say here.
2016-09-12 22:15
Are you dumb? have been away from the cs scene for the past 2 months? You are asking what has heroic done ? roflmao.

CIS chlenixon 
2 MONTHS? If u stack up Heroic's "merits" wich is none. and compare them to HellRaisers, its a done deal already. Ur being stupid. You are just a hater. Im not even hating on Heroic overall i just think its boring to have a mix team of nonamers instead of a well known team.
2016-09-12 22:22
There is a reason why Heroic is ranked #10 and HR isnt there in the top 20 But then i jsut see that you are a blind HR fanboi and im not even a fan of Heroic.Im just stating plain FACTS. Considering the no namer players on HR,its ironic you call heroic nonamers lol.
