u/GarryTheCarry Oct 02 '22

True, but I dont think he is far from truth, I am more scared of MAD losing Bo5 to Buffalo then losing to EG if they beat Buffalo and stop Bo5 memes

u/raikaria2 Oct 03 '22

Yeah losing a Bo5 to Mr.Buffalo would be a meme. Especially since it is Mr.Buffalo. Thank Mr.Buffalo.

EU #4 losing to NA #3 should be expected if the regions are anywhere near equal. The one who loses face there is EG is MAD wins because that's just proof that NA is far behind EU. [If NA #3 loses to EU #4 who can't even win a single domestic Bo5; so are presumerably far behind #3/#2/#1]

Of course; the true meme would be if Buffalo go and beat both.

u/Kardiamond Oct 03 '22

I wouldn't be ashame of EG losing to Mad Lion.

EU is a stronger region, and EG lost one of there star player at the end of playoff and are playing with an academy sub.

u/Snow_Regalia Oct 03 '22

EU isn't particularly further ahead as a region, outside of G2 they've been pretty shite internationally for a few years. Big thing is just the loss of Danny and the fact that EG has tried to adapt in a short window to losing their primary carry and figuring out how to play with Kaori.

That's valid. It's why you only see 2 spots for Taiwan.
They only really produce one and a half decent teams at a time.

u/Kr1ncy Oct 03 '22

You would need to discount G2 for whatever reason to make it look somewhat comparable. 2020 FNC and 2021 MAD Lions were better than anything NA offered in the same years. So yes, they are particularly further ahead.

2018 world's. G2 and flash wolves (LMS 1st seed) were both second place in their group going into the final game.

G2 lost to Afreeca Freecs which meant FW just needed to win against Phong bu buffalo (who were clear weakest in the group) but PVB managed to clutch out the win forcing a tiebreaker between G2 and FW which G2 would win and then proceed to make it all the way to the semi finals.

G2 fans forever bless this moment with a "thank mr buffalo 🐃"

u/RepanseMilos Oct 03 '22

I think in worlds 2018, Buffalo's wins made sure that G2 made it out of their group, so the "Thank mr buffalo" joke got spammed everywhere. Could also have been something similar at MSI. Regardless, Buffalo's have guaranteed that an EU team make it out multiple times iirc.

u/JensenClappedMyMom Oct 03 '22

Let's keep it a buck... The only hope NA ever has at worlds is C9 and Jensen.

Our #3 seed has a sub adc and 100T have choked every time they've went to worlds. Besides C9 the only other hope NA has ever had is Jensen. He's been to World Semis, MSI Finals, and he claps my mom. But now, he's also on C9. So yeah C9 is NA's only hope.

Atleast this year we don't have a Bjergsen lead TL or TSM to go 0-6, but I for one would appreciate it if C9 and Jensen weren't forced to inject the 2nd hand embarrassment of w/e the fuck happens with EG/100T.

C9 is 6/8 to making it to quarters at worlds.
NA as a region has only ever made it out 1 other time.
C9 has Jensen.
NA does not have Jensen.
C9 > NA. Jensen > Every pisslow at this tournament.

Losing to DFM locks them to 4th meaning they have to play the loser of DFM/LLL first then 2nd seed in the other group which is probably RNG.

RNG would then 3-0 EG and knock them out.

It just means you have to play 2 best of 5s to make groups.

u/yrueurbr Oct 03 '22

Wait why do 4th place teams get to bo5s?

These worlds make absolutely no sense

23

u/Sujilia Oct 03 '22

Why does it make no sense? The top performing teams in the group get to the main stage by default because they are presumably a lot better than all the other teams but the lower you go the more you want to seed out to make sure the best remaining teams make it. So you reward the teams that perform well right away and also make sure that the lesser teams are rated properly.

I agree with the sentiment that it's not shit talk worthy of praise. I also don't think it was meant to be quality shit talk, and more akin to someone saying lane gap after feeding their ass off because they narrowly avoided having to play a tiebreaker against them. Wunder is usually pretty on point with his shit talk, so definitely don't think he was trying to be clever.

I'd recommend reading the full articles, I wouldn't call this trashtalk. He's saying that in his opinion, SGB is better than MAD. It might be an not very popular opinion, but it's barely disrespect. A quote from right after:

"Also, because we lost to Fnatic in our first match, I feel that our image has gotten worse. There’s only one way to prove those doubters wrong, and it’s to win. If it comes down to us playing in the elimination/qualifying matches, I want to beat MAD Lions."

You can definitely think it's wrong and that they're underestimating MAD, but ultimately Impact acknowledges that EG need to show that on the rift.

(Also my other point I need to get in as an NA homer is that EG are 0-6 against G2, and 0-1 against the rest of EU. I think it's fine if they did want to trashtalk MAD, it's only G2 so far that has shown they have consistently beat EG. Riot please add more international games so I don't have to come up with copium for EG being 0-7 because they went to one tournament and got stomped)

Since when did we start using Play in success as a measurement for a major region like EU? Getting out in first was literally the expectation for Fnatic, anything else would have been a disappointment. And in terms of perceived strength, the comment you're replying to is definitely not wrong. Purely based on prediction, none of our teams are assumed to even be semifinal contenders, which we used to have at least one of in previous years.

That's like your opinion tho. Even if I agree with that opinion saying 'this is the worst worlds for EU' before there is not even a single match played yet is kinda comedical. Especially when we had season 4 in our hand

Also what are your reasons about why we will do worse than last year? If anything I think we will do better purely because now we have g2 and also Fnatic won't play with a sub at groups. You are saying that the guys is right about 'this is the worst worlds for EU' but I fail to see any logical reason behind it. Sorry

The issue isnt with playins, it's the rest of the competition.

MAD is also expected to lose to DRX soon for an overall 7-3, which isnt too good since there are only 2 teams from cn/kr. Group A shouldve been an easy 5-0 for FNC

The problem happens when we have to deal with all the better teams. Our go-to in G2 has to beat Damwon and JDG (And most likely, MAD lions) Rogue is against TOP, GAM and DRX? Do you think FNC can beat T1 and EDG?

There is a very realistic chance we get only 1 team out of groups if that, and there is no way they beat GenG, TES or JDG.

People said that on several worlds before too. Yet G2 did beat RNG 2018, H2K getting to semis 2016, Misfits almost beating T1 2017, OG getting out of the group of death 2015 and so on. I agree that the odds are stacked against the EU Teams and we will probably see another LPL/LCK final but lets not act like EU teams never 'over'performed before.

u/AbsoluteOrca Oct 03 '22

Please add RNG T1 FNC group to that list as well. Everybody was expecting Uzi to smack Fnatic around and look at what happened.

u/AcrobaticApricot Oct 02 '22

They obviously stomped MAD in scrims, they're scrimming all the teams from the other group. Otherwise it would just be really weird to say the buffalos were better, but if you've scrimmed both and crushed MAD but did just okay versus buffalo of course you'd say MAD was worse.

u/psfrtps Oct 02 '22

Otherwise it would just be really weird to say the buffalos were better

Especially when MAD literally beat Buffalos as well rofl

u/whisper432 Oct 03 '22

Or they got stomped by everyone from other group, buffalos stomping them harder

Banter should at least try to be funny. This just seems like they believe their own bullshit. Inspired certainly does.

Against G2 for 6 of those. When is EU gonna stop pretending G2 haven't carried them the last 3 years and saying "EU" when it was G2.

u/psfrtps Oct 03 '22 edited Oct 03 '22

At 2019 worlds ALL THE EU teams advanced from the groups stage which FNC advanced from a death group which had rng and skt. They lost at quarters to worlds champions while took a game from them where g2 got roflstomped 3-0 at the finals. At 2020 FNC advanced from the groups with G2 and they reverse sweeped by LPL first seed dramatically while g2 achieved 1 step above. At 2021 g2 wasn't even on the worlds and mad reached quarters and got eleminated there. So while G2 is the most succesfull team at eu regarding international tournaments (because they won MSI), you cannot say that they solo carry eu in last 3 years where they weren't even at worlds one of this years and there are other teams put a respectable performances

u/Zamasuningen Oct 03 '22

nah other EU teams atleast go to quarters where as NA literally only has C9 and even then C9 hasn't been in quarters in 2019 and 2020 while in 2021 they needed perkz to carry them

u/Dabsian Oct 03 '22

Bruh, an NA team not called C9 hasn't made it out of groups for 8 years. Then you are banging on about a team 'carrying' a region

Bunch of butthurt EU puppies barking because they can't take the same trashtalk that they give NA.

Some EU fans are so deluded that they invent and twist narratives to suit their needs. Like pretending that G2 winning 6 games against EG has ANYTHING to do with the disparity between EG and MAD. Lol. G2 would absolutely shitstomp MAD into the dirt.

Maybe instead of acting like MAD is = MSI G2, have some respect for EG and realize they're a good team who actually can beat MAD, the winless Bo5 team, in a Bo5.

When G2 was giving classy banter you guys were crying, meanwhile your players can only say they are "shitting" on other regions like they have diarrhea whilr casually being 1-14 against major regions this year

I personally think the Buffalos are a better team than EG and have more potential, so MAD would rather face EG.

Maybe if EG wasn't 0-7 against EU teams their opinions on EU would hold some weight too

u/jdawg254 Oct 03 '22

Honestly I just want more international matches. The fact that 6 of those loses were from msi and only against g2 makes this point really iffy. I wish we had more matches across more teams to have a better idea because not every eu team is g2 and vice versa. All we really have is the g2 matches and the one fnc match.
