Heretics???????????!!!!! Am I tripping or is it for real?? Is it the most undeserved invite in CSGO history? The team did literally NOTHING. They had a free qualy for WESG with t99 teams and they lost fragrantly despite having lower brackets. And on top of that they just made a roster change (total downgrade). clips.twitch.tv/SmoothOilyAlpacaJonCarna.. And where is Movistar Riders?????

Can someone tell me who tf would invite North for an direct invite instead of Heroic or Cr4zy (or even Mad Lions).
2020-01-09 18:54

And who would invite BIG and send Heroic, MAD Lions and Cr4zy to the closed qualy when there was already a free German qualy that BIG could have used.
2020-01-09 18:57
Its easy to understand why they want to secure the biggest german org (with german players) in a tier 2-3 event :) But inviting the 4th best danish team atm before the other teams is beyond my understanding.
