I see 3 NA teams, 3 BR teams and 3 mixs (no way you can call them teams with that pug style of play)
2016-10-03 23:52
if you hint at NRG: it is an American organization with 5/8 Americans on their squad (2 active players + Eley, just9n, SileNt). just because hltv get them an EU flag doesn't make the team an EU team.

Na`Vi to skip ECS Dev. League
2016-10-03 23:26
Let's be honest: - Renegades, EchoFox, Splyce, eUnited, paiN. Are all better than LG right now.

Probably not eUnited, but yeah LG should've had to qualify
2016-10-03 23:30
eUnited are definitely better than LG, no doubt. They won against paiN, and paiN is much better than LG right now. I believe they will grab a few maps in this tournament, but Renegades, EchoFox and Splyce would smash them for sure.
2016-10-03 23:32
LG Beat Echo Fox (the best team in your list) in a BO3 last month, with bit and Nak. They will come back stronger now they have shoowtime and shz.
2016-10-04 00:17
Yyeah, but right now they are losing to random NA teams =/
2016-10-04 00:18
Splyce and eunited are nothing more than Random NA teams lol
2016-10-04 00:19
They are playing ESL NA division at least. Cuz they QUALIFIED for it. LG got invited to ECS and other teams didn't even get a chance to qualify.

CompLexity still getting spots. I don't even... No echo fox, no renegades .. I guess even Splyce would be better than this shit "team".
2016-10-03 23:56
NA would be pretty much perfect -Complexity +EF or maybe renegades. EU is all strong teams, but RIP Na'Vi
