Since the eu minor is more important and big won it they took what would of been envys spot as a top seed if they had 3 g2 players

Sod off mate. By your logic, SK is a EU team, because they are a German org, and have had EU roster through the years.
2017-06-26 10:23
c9 took 2nd seed of NA meanwhile BIG took 3rd seed of EU them winning means nothing tbh.
2017-06-23 19:27
This is cuz BIG basically got ENVYs original spot as one of the 8 invited teams for this qualifier by winning EU minor so they were in draw in same side as teams that played in last major. Envy had to forfeit this spot due not having 3 players who played in same team last major (also reason why eu got 3 spots to major qual from their minor as envy extra spot was up for grabs.)

The Key word is TEAM. One player doesn't get a team to the final of a major. Look at the old mous, they had Niko, arguably the best player in the world. Where they in the finals. NO. People need to realize it was a combined effort from Peace, S1mple, Elige, Nitro, JDM and Hiko. Not only Simple.
2017-06-23 19:03
He carried FaZe tho Without Nitro for example you could still get the finals but not without s1mple

Mouz are a better LAN team overall and they are better at dealing w/ high pressure situations
2017-06-23 17:43
You watch past major qualifiers? Immortals suck when playing in those qualifier
2017-06-23 18:21
It's almost like its a different roster and time has elapsed enabling them to iron out some problems
2017-06-26 12:10
Not really, they only changed one player since the last major qualifier and it's been the same core for some years now
2017-06-26 13:02
They change the IGL too, they are playin' really good w/ 2 awpers
2017-06-26 16:29
Same for Na'Vi and Na'Vi aren't even the same team anymore lol

its also very great for mouz, because they aren't a team that would start off really huge, but will close it out in style, for example i think the match vs. tengri will actually be close but then they'll play well against the other teams.

Doesn't really matter in Swiss format though because if you lose first round it's very likely you will face a weaker team than before.
