So Anexis > eSrael? come on..
2012-06-24 01:48
Anexis have apparently applied for an invitation whereas eSrael may have not.
2012-06-24 01:56
Seeing as for how long Anexis have been around, they deserve the spot.

So if my low team had been around for longer than anexis, we'd deserve the spot over anexis?

2012-06-24 01:49
That's true. I think if we can at least see half those teams then this will end up being a good tournament.

2012-06-24 01:49
lets see how kick will play :)
2012-06-24 01:50
as allways, fail every game in their group
2012-06-24 08:42
ey we don't know since mUt and rmn entered the team they have been praticing a lot and won a lot with the other teams put a low number of rounds and they still didn't play internationally so they might surprise
2012-06-24 09:34
You seriously keep believing that they can show SOMETHING on international level? They had like million possibilities and chances and non of them were implemented. I guess they have never been even top 4 (international). And nothing will change.
2012-06-24 11:27
Top 4? They were never in top 15.
2012-06-24 12:33
u dont have no clue about what ure talkingw, but yes expected coment from roman
2012-06-24 13:58
Teams who are better than k1ck now : fnatic sk navi esc winfakt.se alternate kerchnet anexis esreal virtus.pro moscow five myrevenge.de Need Sponsor ( ex b2b) tyloo delta a2g Inactive/retired/kicked teams that were better than k1ck when k1ck was playing too: Winfakt.fi mouz mTw EvilGeniuses eSahara (Absolute Legends) Begrip Power Gaming We Made Fox Tyloo.RAW MYM.sweden There are probably more but i just cant remember.
2012-06-24 17:39
how can you say that? . last year on the internet they tied against winfakt.fi (lagging a lot) . some years ago they lost 16-14 against Na`Vi . they have already won mouzesports some years ago in dreamhack i think . last gamegune they won Anexis and... we can't even compare the lineup they have now to all those they had before you remembered me those people who though that in Euro2012 Portugal wouldn't pass the groupstage lolol go portugal!
2012-06-25 04:50
yeah so a couple of matches decide whether the team is better than the other or not? Just check the achievements of each team and what they have done and don't base yourself in matches which they were near to win, or won just against anexis. Dont be ridiculous.
2012-06-25 05:33
no, that matches dont decide which team is better and i didnt say that i'm just saying that k1ck shouldnt be considered such a low team only because they only participate in like 2/3 international events a year. because when they do, they make some damages in my opinion they are in the top10 but wtv, make your stupid judgements and you'll see if you won't get surprised
2012-06-25 08:54
kick is very bad team lol
2012-06-25 16:44
the thing is there are no facts that k1ck is anywhere naer top10, and it's not my problem if they don't attend enough events, it's their own fault. And what damage are you talking about? Having a good match against Na´Vi (losing) or winning a match against Anexis(? If I see k1ck having a good performance in this tournament, okay, I'll agree with you pal, but so far they don't have enough to be top10 IMO.
2012-06-25 17:59
troll ? check last gamegunes results then talk :) and i cant see how many uk teams finished in top 15 aswell
2012-06-24 17:27
Not that i dont agree with you, i probably hate k1ck fanboy's as much as you do, all they see in front is fox,fox,fox.. they overrate the portuguese players,but look at the statistics and facts.. k1ck have always progressed from the groupstages in gamegune,and have always performed well, so in this case.. you're just being a hater and wrong.

2012-06-24 01:56
what does veto stand for?
2012-06-24 01:56
to delete(in case now maps) or stopped something.
2012-06-24 01:57
Teams take turns to eliminate maps until 1 (or 3) remain.
2012-06-24 02:37

2012-06-24 02:01
if k1ck doesn't get to semis, I'll take everything I said about them back lurppis. Now it's the chance to see if what I said is or is not true. K1ck now have the chance to prove if they are stronger then Alternate and even Anexis
2012-06-24 02:01
AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA TO SEMIS!???????? you crazyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
2012-06-24 02:44
3rd in their group will be success =DDD
2012-06-24 10:16
only anexis and fnatic are way better than k1ck imo. Alternate are at the same level imo. Only if they get unlucky and play one of those 2 they will get out early
2012-06-24 18:31
If those will be the teams, then Fnatic easy!

2012-06-24 02:05
How many maps can a team veto? I know for a fact that K1CK will veto forge/tuscan/mirage.
2012-06-24 02:05
not sure for tuscan... in there last bootcamps they already start practising in tuscan!

fnatic will take this, I want to see what k1ck are going to do here so much fanboys saying they dont have a chance to prove themselves against top teams theres your chance and dont comeback whining saying "ooooooh they work and study they didnt have time to pracc" you always say something stupid. go fnatic !
2012-06-24 06:06
yeah you know... atleast they do something in life, they don't depend on CS results like you no lifers.
2012-06-24 13:55
like me? I study and I play cs like 6 hours a week I go to school and study i'm just talking about the diferences, I know in portugal if they could they only play CS like our pro's and you cant say they would be "like me, no lifers" there live is playing cs so
2012-06-24 15:35
Boom, u won ;)
2012-06-24 15:40
This is not a matte of who won or not... its true K1CK have a diferent way of living that any pro or semi-pro team. They are good, really good for the time that they play. But they simply have a monster, foxj he easily could it be one of the best... And anyone that said the opposite its just a fanboy or a trashtalk. P.S. Sry for the bad english and yes im PORTUGUESE!
2012-06-25 01:19

they need to kick k1ck !! low team
2012-06-26 18:45
top1 iberian's team + france presumably k1ck > ALTERNATE take your own conclusion and, be quiet. I know that portugueses guys said a lot of times that k1ck is unstoppable and will beat the most hardest teams in whole of the world , but thats not true. k1ck will take their own chance in order to prove who they are and what they can do. Without excuses , k1ck isn't pretty amazing team how portuguese guys think about. However , this is the moment which k1ck will shine friis>karrigan>foxj>nuggi>little>approx>kairi with awp
