True but Nip has been in a slump like forever. They won iem Oakland and then that’s it. No qualifying for events. No play offs. No major qualifying. They should just disband.

Same at Star Ladder, for sure rigged for them but they are so bad it doesn't really matter either way.
2018-05-28 20:32
0/8 literally half the teams in the tourney are garbage (not an exaggerated number). So given that Na'Vi tanked their first match, there was a 90% chance they would face another garbage team.
2018-05-28 21:04
-8/8, every other team in the loser bracket is worse than VG
2018-05-28 21:19
rofl, I dont think it matters if you play a tier5 team or a tier4 team when you're one of the best teams in the world. VP, NRG, or Renegades are all easy draws. Gambit and HR aren't that scary either. Not to mention you have Tyloo Avangar and AGO in winners. So stop baiting fatty

SK got the team playing with a standin in quarters. Had the easiest lower bracket. Thanks for proving my point :)
2018-05-29 07:52
Wait? Your point was about bottom-tier teams, isn't it? Or u just change know? You just made no sense
2018-05-29 13:53
it's a quarterfinal matchup. ofc there aren't going to be any bottom teams in the quarters lmao. retarded?

2018-05-28 19:59
Just accept it, they always get the easiest opponents. TyLoo and then Avangar, just lol
2018-05-28 20:18
braindead, tyloo won agaisnt Navi
2018-05-28 20:40
And that means TyLoo is good? Once in a lifetime lucky game or NaVi played their worst game ever. And btw, i meant VG.Flash ... VG.Flash + Avangar to go 2-0 ... They just need one more lucky game after that and they’re through, lol
2018-05-28 21:11
Tyloo has been taking down big teams for two or three tournments. The only reason they're not respected by you is because they are not in your European bubble of teams or because they don't have the money of NA. They're playing just nice and deserve the spot of a tough opponent to face.
2018-05-28 21:35
VG.Flash
2018-05-28 22:24
+1 thats the respect tyloo deserves for their dedication in the past. They're not playing bad, just how you said "they are not as big as EU teams, dont have money like NA". Theyre always underdogs, even though theyre always a challenge for the teams from the bigger regions. IMO they deserve the spot on every single tournament they play, not just because theyre the best of CN, but serious contenders and challengers in every tournament.
2018-05-28 23:59

After Navi , Mousesport?? WTF, why tyloo always got tough opponent ? What a rigged draw by starSeeries.
2018-05-28 21:01
You have to win 3 matches anyway. You get a total of 5 attempts maximum to do so. Eventually they will play the bottom tier teams regardless. Even if they had 2 easy teams their first 2 games, they would end up playing 2 strong teams after they go 2-0. That is the whole point of this pool process, so all these complaints about match ups are stupid af.

Its about momentum not just concept , smart man,,
2018-05-28 21:43
No it's not about momentum. They don't play all their games on the same day. You're either too stupid to understand the concept behind this format or you like to believe in blind luck. To go 3-0 facing shit teams the whole time is a probability of less than 1%

Really? Im not say that Tyloo have to got 3 ez team to win, but Still Mousesport > than other team that win 1-0, Look SK they have opponent like VG and Anvangar,i guest they are the 1% 😬 your probability is rigged too i guest , 2-0 will be different than 1-1 , especially to boost mentality for tyloo guys. At least give tyloo player some room to breath,, Is not "format" that the problem but the "DRAW" is not to good for tyloo,, I think you just overthinking what the main problem is, and just try soo hard to looking smart,,

Well, I wouldn’t say that. Considering the well played match by Tyloo against NaVi, and the fact that SK was eliminated in Sydney by Grey-smth, I see an easy 2-0 for the chinas.
