Why did they forfeit their match last night? Didn't they include Mirbit in the roster? Calyx was playing FPL right when their match was scheduled and they cited that they couldn't field in a complete roster to compete, what happened?

-Why did it take so long to find form? -We find form right after we landed NA, something magical happened there, don't know what it could be. -Can GODSENT become a top 10 team? -No, they are where they are because they are qualifying from NA, when they played in the European t3 they were eating dicks day after day.

They played in t3 EU right after they release the roster. In the beggining they were struggling against NA teams also (they didnt passed through the closed qualifier). Every team need some time and godsent needed even more, since their players played in similar positions, 3 are rookies and they never played together (besides taco and felps)
2021-10-13 13:15
Godsent was playing better than Movistar Riders in t2, t3 EU tournaments at the beggining of the year KEKW
2021-10-13 15:07
Actually I would say that godsent is better than movistar at the moment...

Every teammate that has played with Taco said he was the best teammate they ever had. The fact that he lead a group of teenagers to a major is very impressive, but I get it you're a taco hater so you're always going to hate him no matter what.

For sure beating Liquid and Furia and earning a Major spot is a huge failure. TACO and GODSENT should be ashamed.

TACO is a bad fragger, sometimes he even looks like an idiot/bot in certain situations, but there is no denying he is an important player for any team he has joined. Wish him and the other Godsent boys the best

As an entryfragger, it is obvious (at least for me) that his frags and stats wont be that great. Taco makes a sacrifice to his team, allowing the rest of the team to frag and secure the bomb. If wasn't for taco, another player would fit his position, therefor, you would probably say that this other player would have bad stats.
2021-10-14 22:51
Super good show like always, congrats to all. TACO was an awesome guest!
