Renegades will be in Santa Ana for iBUYPOWER Masters 2017

Four teams are already known: Cloud9, Liquid, OpTic, and CLG. It is now the turn of Renegades to join the list of invited teams.

GX? Would certainly bring in the viewers even though they aren't that good.

Mostly nope I think. Gx doesn't deserve it(imo) because they just started playing recently and looked shaky in esea prem. There are many other better teams waiting for a LAN opportunity.

Yeah but remember this is a CS tournament same can be said for VP and NiP but people still invite them. GX could bring in more viewers just saying :-)

NiP and VP can potentially win the tournament when on a flow. Same can't be said for GX. If you look at their premier games, they struggled to implement basic executions and are using old school stats. So let them grind and grab it by proving themselves :)
2017-10-26 21:49
How are you not understanding him? Dude doesnt give a fuck if they cant win. GX are an insanely popular team despite the fact they currently suck. Inviting them raises your tournament viewers by a heap simply thanks to all the Swag/DaZeD fanboys. I thought basim made it pretty simple tbh

Dude he is 100% correct but I'm not thinking in a view count perspective because this LAN already has top NA teams which is suffice to create enough curiosity. All it needs is one aspiring team waiting for a chance since long time.

Really don’t know why IBP would invite players that made their organization look bad. Especially when they don’t deserve a spot.

i know bro..its the 3 kangaroos in the team, its not a coincidence they improved alot since the addition of naf, cuz naf is a good player & i believe there are bunch of na kids better than this aussie guy
2017-10-26 22:19
Keep in mind that Australia and New Zealand's professional gaming scene is isolated in that unless you make it to the international stage, you can only play against other Oceania teams. Combined with the lack of good igls (similar to the NA scene for some time) it makes it hard for any Australian talent to be recognised early enough to capitalise upon and be trained properly from the start.
2017-10-26 22:23
this noob spend yearrssssss in NA bruh....practices everyday against decent like teams c9,liquid & one of the best team in form of sk.. they cant even win any asian tourney for yearssssssss

They have been like 1 year in NA before that they were living and praccing against teams in Oceania.
2017-10-26 23:57
They prac against tier 3 - 4 NA teams. It's not like C9 or the old Optic lineup which would regularly play against European teams.
2017-10-27 01:16
Oceania scene is trash deal with i, I play here, RNG is a trash team despite being a supporter of them. They have a lot of funding, practice against tier 3-4 teams because the c9, optic etc see no use because of how trash they are. They have the option to go through the NA or Asia Minor and still lose the easier Asia Minor againsts frag heavy teams playing zero strats on a game that is strategy orientated. I feel bad for RNG
2017-10-27 01:22
current c9 a decent team bro..liquid not that bad either and sk, what can we say? give tyloo 1 year chance in NA, there are high probability they might qualify for the major
