The original line-up that defeat Cloud9 was a different one, they had mch instead of bit and caike instead of NikoM if I'm not mistaken.

And in this game in the IEM Sydney Qualifier they made some mistakes that could have changed the final result. You can see the first and last maps were pretty close. And floppy was playing amazing and managed to hard carry this NA mix.

I got jebaited, i thought eUnited says "win scrim not matches" and when i open the thread it is a team name. Wp

Yes
2019-02-01 15:03
Shame of you, TeamOne.
2019-02-01 14:03
Agreed. This should've been an easy win. Even if NikoM and bit played subpar, it shouldn't have effected the outcome this much.
