  4. I'll say it. No eastern team is winning another tourney unless it is NA/EU exclusive. It is Russia vs Asia from now on.

    1. I think you meant no Western team will win. What do you base this statement on? Fnatic are eu and beat a lot of the best asian teams and lots of the western teams are exposed to asian gameplay. I think your statement is wrong

  6. not russia as a whole... they only got M5... where as Asia got TPA, WE, AZF and AZB, SGS, and a lot more... but i think Fntic.RC did well considering they got a new lineup and not much is heard from them since season 1 unlike other teams that have pretty solid lineup... i look forward to Fntic being more solid in the season 3... unless another lineup change...

  7. Their adc is too young to be part of Season 3, so I'm afraid there will be one.

  10. I find very interesting that the last big tournaments ended very similar
    of course the strongest teams are getting first places but what I am talking about is the asian dominance followed by europeans, meanwhile NA teams are falling behind very badly.
    I am glad somehow that Fnatic its making a comeback very stong and Rekkles is a great pick so far as Soaz is playing insane and Xpeke is playing like a mad man.
    This mmight mean to Na teams to step up their game and take it more seroius or they will keep falling behind

  16. European teams as a whole did as good as Asia : http://i46.tinypic.com/23molsw.jpg

    And M5 are definetely on a bad way, they pretty much lost their strength whereas European teams are going up (Eclypsia and Alternate for example are doing great right now are new teams).

  17. Awesome site. Glad you posted them... I watched live. Just a thought, though (Something that Day9 always did that I appreciated) When you post them, post all of the match games. All 3 in best of 3 and all 5 in best of 5. That way it really is no spoil for those who've managed to not hear the results. Having only 2 games in best of 3... you already know who wins the second game ^_^.

  18. Moobeat, you seem to have worldly knowledge about league. Or at least I assume so because of S@20 (which I check waaay to often).

    I was wondering if you'd be willing to look at this champion concept and leave your thoughts (of course as just a reply in that forum):

  20. totally najin sword... maknoon is a great aggressive player and his team is as aggressive as he is... it's really fun to watch aggressive teams like najin sword that doesn't rely on peeling and late game to win a match... but najin sword are not doing great nowadays...
