don't lie to yourself you know they won't
2017-10-24 17:24
^ they have beaten clg in esl ny closed qualifier (and fall to c9 2-1), but all in all they have almost qualified for that. I've been following rise nation scene for a while, but as i can see there's not alot matches, where they have played on LAN :D, so that's the problem. But i wish they are going to beat Luminosity.

One group would be better anyways, as 5 teams are favorites to qualify.. (liquid,CLG,NRG,misfits and LG)
