Yup, he was really stepping up with his shots and position today. But the thing is Happy's predictable lurk had recently hurted NV a lot.

I'm not surprised. This is the best ENVYUS for a long time. We'll see what they can do. Maybe TOP5? It will be difficult, but who knows. Very good performance by SIXER. People criticize him, ofc unfairly. I'm sure he will be better than DEVIL.
