2017-09-14 18:57
I love how people get triggered over ANALYST invites. You probably fucking skip that part anyway. And, as a matter of fact, sometimes he raises some really good points tbh. It's not like he'll cast the whole game. The real problem is that they didn't invite my boi Anders NotLikeThis BibleThump
2017-09-14 19:47
2 replies
Yeah Anders would be good, I like him a lot actually. But Thorin? I can't stand that guy. But I think Anders just had a son didn't he? So it's understandable that he's refusing invites.

Yes, pretty shit. Skipped all ESG desk segments because of him + lurppis. However reddit kids seem to love him, and even tho reddit is a minority group it's where tournament organizers go to check the community.

Out in quarters = out during group stage, it's a 8 teams tourney. What you said probably meant you thought VP would go further than FaZe but if "FaZe is out in groups, and VP out in quarters" then they are out at the same stage.

who cares about 0-2 winners match should be a bo3 just like in Malmo this prevents lucky flukes the perfect format would be openers bo1, rest bo3
