2017-09-21 00:43
Because open is the only one we have? Our best teams are in the same level of NA premier as we could see in the last seasons of Global Challenge :)
2017-09-21 01:00
I'm just being a hater. I'm excited to see them play against decent teams
2017-09-21 03:23
If they win you get to talk about how SA open is better than NA or EU premier!

Many inconsistent teams like Space Soldiers has their 'peak' (top form) time during the game, it's important to know when their peak time is and use radical methods to slow down their pace. And then start attacking hard when their steam is gone. :D

Hopefully T1 will make it past the group stage. Cantt see them getting much more than that tbh, but I'll be cheering for them. Final will probably be F3 x SS, 2-1 in favor of flipside.
