Every moment a player not from Brazil makes a good play you say you don't care because everybody is shit except SK and the Brazilian scene in general (act like SK would be your religion lol).

Well Liquid should be a given here unless something gets all messed up. Would like to see Misfits or NRG get a spot, but will probably be Luminosity.
