You do reallise that going after finlands education that has been ranked in top3 in world since 2000 and India is not in top20, just proves my point, that you cant use internet to do any research, you only use it to spew your own believes that are not based in any facts, matey.

They're disgusting together, Co Stanly making flirtatious sex jokes with one another its disgusting. Also Moses has a shitty voice and sounds like a faggot and thinks he's a fuckin stand up comic. Just cast the game or better yet dont because you have a terrible voice for casting

Pansy is great. James plays a major role in face it, so no invite to esl events. Thorn back at a t1 event is surprising, especially at ESL.

I fucking hate casting the Facebook stream! That stupid "Live!" box is located next to the top right side of the TV which makes it impossible to see who kills who as we are used to. Sad deal they made with ESL :(

Worst thing is that its difficult to find if you have trackers and 3rd party cookies disabled. HLTV won't redirect you there and then you have to wade through fb.gg to find it all the while closing any and every Facebook create account pop up in the way.

Thank you esl for not inviting anders who is overated as fck.
