Kinguin over Space Soldiers? I think thats questionable.
2017-03-19 22:02
Turkey BlackDynamite 
they can come from open qualifier easily.dont worry.
2017-03-19 22:19
kinguin is marginally better that space soldiers imo, but ss is better than pretty much any other team that could qualify.
2017-03-20 04:14
Last game between kinguin and Ss 0:2 Ok
2017-03-20 10:04
Mad kebab hahahhahahhahah
2017-03-20 10:10
one cannot judge the superioriy of a team on one game only
2017-03-20 10:43
ofc it cant, but SpaceS has won more matches against them than kinguin himself so
2017-03-20 17:15
Maybe u dont know that but kinguin players said before any matches including against SS that they are not inform and have to bootcamp what they actually do. Maybe ss won last 2 matches but it really doesnt mean anything.
2017-03-20 17:23
yeaaa, ofc,not inform... noone cares if someone is inform or not, everyone can say that easyly.
2017-03-20 17:24
2017-03-20 17:38
yep, 0 arguments from you so. But actually, CRY isnt free.
2017-03-20 17:56
LOL arguments for what? CRY IS FREE
2017-03-20 18:19
In this case, why not :D. I actually think these teams are quite even. Lets see who goes through the qualifier :D
2017-03-20 18:08
NiP ???
2017-03-19 22:02
probably were offered a spot but declined bcs they dont wanna fly all the way to texas to play in shitty 100k tourney with no top teams in attendance.
2017-03-19 22:34
Top1 team NiP they dont go to any event just majors !!!!!
2017-03-19 22:34
World lecsus 
>with no top teams but that's like their only chance to win something lol
2017-03-20 00:58
everyone knows that apart from them themselves.
2017-03-20 02:28
Yeah what's the point in attending if you're not gonna get out of groups?
2017-03-20 12:38

2017-03-19 22:03
Haha yeah
2017-03-19 22:05
still great lineup so far, will be good 2 see how IMT, heroic and gambit progress, how new TL and g2 look like on LAN and c9 still has the pieces to be a good team.
2017-03-19 22:35
Yeah, it's gonna be fun
2017-03-19 22:37
It will be good, it's not possible to have only tournaments with tier 1 teams all the time, this tournaments are usually very nice,just to see how this tier 2/3 teams will progress
2017-03-20 11:50
4-man coL > LG OK
2017-03-19 22:04

Where is OpTic, SS, North? wtf dh
2017-03-19 22:07

2017-03-19 22:09
Israel m26s

2017-03-19 23:06
Latvia Tw1nk 
I want to see MarKE on tournament
2017-03-19 22:11
Me too! It will probably end up Misfits or NRG going thru the NA Quals. So, hopefully he will be there.
2017-03-19 22:28
Renegades OR LG could get the spot, if they go through the open qualifier
2017-03-19 22:35
RNG would be about the same level as Misfits or NRG, LG can be better but sometimes doesn't perform as well as they should.
2017-03-19 22:41
Brazil kLango 
Just looking for LG...
2017-03-19 22:13
And people say IEM Shitney will be bad :D
2017-03-19 22:17
this isnt bad^^ lots of interesting teams to watch, even tho noone in top8 atm.
2017-03-19 22:37
ez heroic
2017-03-19 22:17
2017-03-19 22:21
NA they deserve like 1 or 2 spots no more.bots
2017-03-19 22:24
Brazil Soubatman 
NO LG????
2017-03-19 22:30
lol lg is some shitty t4 team even worse than clg and complexity
2017-03-20 05:49
SS deserve invite more than kinguin and hr
2017-03-19 22:31
2017-03-19 22:51
Turkish and america
2017-03-19 23:07
Ez mouz
2017-03-19 22:49
wonder why mouz even plays the qualifier so far the never played one for an 100k Dreamhack Event and recently never played in one assuming they probably got invited to numerous ones directly. Maybe they realize it would be a good experience to play and maybe win a smaller Event.
2017-03-19 22:53
we havent t1 teams like Astralis,VP,Faze,SK,North and still we have great t2 teams like NaVi,g2,Envuys,Optic,Immortals and Gambit. This year will be great. NaVi can return t1 team if finally win bo3 after group stage. Ps Gambit online suck, but i think this team looks rly good on LAN, and they can be t1 team.
2017-03-19 23:05
CoL over RNG??? That seems pretty stupid; they trounce them pretty hard everytime they play.
2017-03-19 23:07
coL over lg haha
2017-03-20 00:41
Turkey SG^^ 
It doesn't surprise me that SS not being invited for they haven't been managed to play in a single $100k LAN.
2017-03-19 23:11
Turkey SG^^ 
and also, not a single win against T1 teams is another reason for that.
2017-03-19 23:11
EZ Godsent
2017-03-19 23:38
ich hope BIG will win a Open Quali
2017-03-19 23:38
I'm from NA and proud to be NA, but honestly why are there so many NA open spots? 99% of the time there's going to be some no-namer that gets 16-0'd
2017-03-19 23:41
wheres SK? no troll or something
2017-03-20 00:02
SK don't attend 100k tournaments.
2017-03-20 00:33
haha they didn't invite LG? They just won bo3's over all these NA teams... and Liquid too. I hope they play the qualifier and rekt them all.
2017-03-20 00:04
Ez 4 Mousesports and Misfits. GODSENT look deader than ever and i don't see HR or Kinguin beating even a weakened Mouz.
2017-03-20 00:38
HR >> Mouz
2017-03-20 02:33
Is that why Oskar and now potentially STYKO have ditched HR to join Mouz?
2017-03-20 02:46
Hungary stretchelold 
What does styko have to do with mouz?
2017-03-20 07:32
Heavily rumoured to be moving to Mouz in place of Spidii
2017-03-20 10:40
Hungary stretchelold 
No source so shh Bad b8er
2017-03-20 10:44
twitter.com/neLendirekt/status/843449490.. neL, been very successful at predicting roster moves in the past. Very clearly has ties to the pro scene of CS:GO twitter.com/STYKOcsgo/status/84360165196.. Styko "I am still player of HR after all". Sort of implies he won't be for much longer, or is atleast a comment regarding the leaked possible roster change. Also Oskar is on Mouz who played with STYKO in the past. As Mouz's new Hard-Carry, it makes sense he'd be allowed to make the choices as to who they sign and kick, same as NiKo. Don't call someone out for not having source if you never asked for it to begin with.
2017-03-20 10:48
Hungary stretchelold 
Styko sad he want to play with guardian cuz theyre good friends So wont happen
2017-03-20 10:56
So you're saying STYKO won't make any moves to further improve his career just because he wants to eventually play with GuardiaN? That is some fucking terrible logic
2017-03-20 10:59
Hungary stretchelold 
We will see Btw HR is doing well so no need to change
2017-03-20 11:01
But not as well as Mouz currently is, and could be with the addition of STYKO instead of Spidii or Denis. Just because your team is doing okay doesnt mean you shouldn't take an offer to join a better team.
2017-03-20 11:02
Hungary stretchelold 
And spidii comes to HR i dont think so Date prediction
2017-03-20 11:09
Why would Spidii go to HR? Theres so many better options from the CIS region that HR could sign. Why would you even think Spidii would go to HR?
2017-03-20 11:13
Hungary stretchelold 
I did not But i saw some comment on twitter about jonnta (the coach) sad roster change only would happen if HR does bad
2017-03-20 11:16
Well i mean, they've stagnated at the bottom to middle of Tier 2 since signing DeadFox. Personally i'd be recommending roster changes just to try and get that factor that pushes them up a bit further.
2017-03-20 11:19
Hungary stretchelold 
Hmm Markelof to HR would be really great They would become a cis team again
2017-03-20 11:25
Hungary stretchelold 
Ausi logic lul
2017-03-20 11:01
oskar left for mouz when they had niko, hr are better than mouz now
2017-03-21 23:26
We'll see once each team plays on LAN
2017-03-22 05:13
World lecsus 
A lack of interesting teams on a t3 event, what a shock. If stream is gonna be again in 720p/60 not even gonna bother watching it.
2017-03-20 01:01

2017-03-20 01:25

2017-03-20 11:27
