godsent better not lose to a fucking cloud9
2016-10-12 01:17
cloud9 is better than godsent by miles Wish echo fox was in other group, then we could have c9, tyloo, echo, and faze qualify. Would be lit
2016-10-12 07:32
not individually, but ye as a team they are
2016-10-12 07:32
Individual talents doesn't win games constantly, if GS were to win it would be only out of luck or C9 playing badly. If it's the same C9 that we saw in SL or DHB, GS has no chance (my friend)
2016-10-12 07:54
or unless there stars flusha krimz je actually play like stars
2016-10-12 07:56
if they're better as a team, they are better you fucking idiot no exceptions
2016-10-13 17:58
that logic, well see whos better when they play
2016-10-13 18:10
the better team, obviously

Nice group for tyloo, easy for them.
2016-10-12 00:50
I feel like they have a good match up against Homesent and Echofox. C9 is variable.
2016-10-12 03:30
They have a really good chance, hope it will be HOMESENT vs TyLoo.
2016-10-12 11:30
Not easy group for them
2016-10-12 06:34
TyLoo visa for USA has passed.
2016-10-12 06:59
why you talk nonsense? they got 1year visa this time around ;)
2016-10-12 07:24
That's Schengen VISA for Euro, this time is for USA, and with this they can travel to USA in 2 years now :)

omg FaZe might actually get out of groups for once.
2016-10-12 00:53
No way faze is going out with that group. Maybe FaZe and Immortals? Or even FaZe or Renegades. It could go either way
2016-10-12 00:56
Immortals have Renegades number in head to head matchups so for me if Renegades can upset FaZe it could be Immortals/RNG but most likely Immortals/FaZe. I dont see TSM having a chance.

Group B looks locked, unless FaZe go full retard. Group A looks more competitive, TyLoo is very random, they can take maps from tier 1 teams, but at the same time they are able to lose a bo3 to ENCE, fucking ENCE. GODSENT have been playing terrible, so c9 will likely top this group. If EchoFox play like they played on their bo3 victory over Liquid, they can actually compete for a spot too.
2016-10-12 01:07
TyLoo has huge leadership problems from what I've seen, When they played ENCE in that tournament their coach was not with them, then they played extremely bad. I think their great plays come from preparation, hope to see a better showing at this tourney.

A fair comment. Preparation is very important for Tyloo. But I don't think Tyloo showed what they have when they were playing ENCE.
