Why? Last DH Leipzig was good(astralis,navi,dig,lg(now sk)). The only reason why team are not top ranked - its major. The same time

I'm really happy to see these type of tournaments. Some good teams in attendance, good price money and a lack of tier1 teams so everyone can aim to go all the way. I really think we need these kind of events as a stepping stone for new or tier 3 teams and players. In the past it was simply way too difficult for new players to break into the scene. In 2017 I really expect some new players to break into the scene.

inb4 Vega wins whole thing
2017-01-12 11:23
They have 70% of getting into the semi-final so who knows ? Sincerely , I will cheer for them because they showed at the EL Qual that they are a team , capable of doing damage to bigger teams and in the feature they might improve

its not rlly a big deal or at least not now. I mean it definitely was an upset but upsets happen once in a while. you could run the same matchup of NiP and Vega over and over again and NiP would win almost very time if not all.
