Maybe if you played against the actual best you'd say otherwise. You probably played against some randy silver team
2018-04-19 22:36
Yeah we probably wouldve lost against Eversio, this was an invitational for igaming companies
2018-05-05 21:10
Why are people giving away money to QBF in all these tournies? Why are they even in these low tier tournies, I thought major winners werent usually invited to these :thinking:
