nigga u r mad
2017-08-14 14:25
no I am not mad, but you have disrespected a race by saying the N word. I reported you too, this should not be allowed on a platform like this :)
2017-08-14 14:26
Niggers call each other like that on a daily basis but if a non-nigger says that it's racism. :DD

2017-08-14 16:30
Yes
2017-08-14 16:46
I'm from Virginia and people don't call other people the n word on a daily basis, I've never lived and more southern than what I do now but were not as racist as some think maybe your thinking of somewhere else

You are probably mg even if you wanted to join a T2 team you couldn't have that option also they farm a lot of cash from online tours T2 players get paid quite well from orgs 1000-2000$ +prize pool money

I'm just telling you that's what they won I personally don't think they should be invited but they probably will be. I'd rather see Navi Fnatic and VP over nip
2017-08-14 16:00
fnatic are worse than NiP atm and VP are on a similar level since we havent seen enough of new NiP or new style of VP and Na'Vi just restarted their whole lineup so no idea who is better.
2017-08-14 16:33
Fnatic worse? Only team that hold their legend status for all majors yet. So where was nip in Krakow? Oh right didn't make it cause to shit
2017-08-14 16:58
Yeh only take tournaments where new nip and fnatic were in. Esl one cologne 2017 fnatic dont't make it out of groups NiP make it 3-0 out of groups and have super close quarter final game.

If you want a tournament with all the best players around, Immortals should be their priority, since I'm assuming they like hyping those old wack-ass teams such as Na'vi and NiP, then they'll probably take the last two invite spots.

I think it would be fair for NiP to get invited they won IEM Oakland 2016 afterall and still aren't invited... Im not mentioning it from fanboy's perspective but from realistic perspective,like almost every tournament invites their champions if not every tournament... But yeah thats how it goes i guess
