NA vs Vietnam if it happens will match the bo5 between NA and EU in worlds/msi since 2017?

my pick'em is a bust. Any recommendations for this pick'em?

u/Zztrox-world-starter Oct 03 '22

Choose DFM. I can't recommend on SGB vs MAD cuz of course I'll pick my home country

u/LKZToroH Oct 03 '22

too bad you picked DFM =/

u/Zztrox-world-starter Oct 04 '22

I chose DFM correctly though, they defeated LLL. Now we'll see them getting crushed by RNG

2

u/LKZToroH Oct 04 '22

Yeah I know .-. I made the comment when Loud was 1-0 and looking like they weren't going to throw the next 3 games doing trash drafts... It seems like once DFM banned Amumu, loud tilted and forgot what to pick.

u/Zztrox-world-starter Oct 04 '22

Well so I won one bet and lost one, perfectly balanced.

What happens if you don't pick? Do you get the coin used or do you get nothing picked for you?

63

u/CEDFTW Oct 03 '22

Yep the coin will auto pick for you.

16

u/Wall_Marx Oct 03 '22

but you don't win as much if you're right I believe

29

u/Aythriel Oct 03 '22

You do get the same amount if you intentionally pick the coin. The coin gets auto-picked if you forget to make your pickems and in this case you get fewer points.

3

u/Wall_Marx Oct 03 '22

Yep, thanks for the confirmation (/clarification as it seems I was ambiguous)

0

u/CEDFTW Oct 03 '22

I mean yea it's just like picking all C's on a multiple choice test you are playing roulette. But it's not rigged if that's what you are implying the coin picks before the games start just like if you picked yourself.

6

u/Wall_Marx Oct 03 '22

No I'm just saying if you let the coin choose for you you'll get more points if you manually click the coin rather then let it auto pick

We need a team that has TBD as its initials. They would make every tournament, at least early on.

Because its TBD. Some may predict MAD win vs EG, but if SGB wins vs MAD, i think most will predict EG win.

On the other hand, an EU team randomly dropping happy games to someone they should beat... Less likely outside of Bo1 but not entirely unheard of.

u/DarkBretticus300 Oct 03 '22

I bet on Loud and SGB because I want them to win but I have the largest gut feeling they wonโ€™t. Oh well I just want to keep the NA EU bo5 never happening meme alive. Whatโ€™s one more year?

u/Zeran :Aphelios: Oct 03 '22

Always pick against what you want to happen. That way you either win pickems or win because the team you want won. Ez pz.

u/Kisielos Oct 03 '22

I am from EU and I know MAD will loose. They are just pathetic with their game.

62

u/BestMundoNA Oct 03 '22

the team that almost beat drx? And already beat sgb.

5

u/RoadblockGG Oct 03 '22

I honestly think they revealed a lot of their picks and thus "invested" a lot in that drx game, clearly catching them off guard. It's very sad they traded baron for game, but I think that was their hail mary. It's such a shame really because both nesquick and armut played very well, it wasnt just elyoya carrying. Just a very very sad ending to an otherwise very good game from them.

0

u/Kisielos Oct 03 '22

It was a 'good' game in terms that they had a chance and lead to win it. Yet they didn't. For now, for me it's just hard to cheer for them if they didn't even win a single BO5 entire split and yet they are here.

-11

u/Kisielos Oct 03 '22

Almost is not enough.

13

u/BestMundoNA Oct 03 '22

Conviniently ignoring that they beat SGB already?

-17

u/Kisielos Oct 03 '22

Why would I ignore it? It was BO1. Mad Lions won zero BO5 this split. The fact that they are here is already a disgrace to our region as they did not earn their spot. That's why I am saying SGB should win, they at least earned to be here. And EU will dodge loosing to EG from NA that way, as I hardly see them winning against them.

Yet if they will go through SGB and EG, I will accept them as our 4th spot, as they will finally have some BO5 under their belt.

For now this is a disgrace to LEC format and the team that qualificate that way.

21

u/BestMundoNA Oct 03 '22

MAD played 2 bo5 this split, one against rogue (lost 2-3) and one against FNC (lost 1-3). People act as if this is some absolute disgrace and this means MAD is dogshit, when it is not unreasonable results, and the blame is on LEC format p clearly.

LEC format is dogshit sure, but idk why you're negative about the team effected by that.

9

u/F0RGERY Oct 03 '22

tbh I always thought it was mostly people memeing.

Same way saying TL ending 4th is a meme, or Rogue being chokers.

5

u/BestMundoNA Oct 03 '22

Some people memed it, but so many people refuse to acknowledge mad as a team because of EU format. Rogue being chokers also isn't a meme to many people.

1

u/APKID716 Oct 03 '22

or rogue being chokers

No people are VERY serious about that for some reason. Still have a bunch of people acting like Rogue is gonna bomb out of groups

6

u/Falendil Oct 03 '22

This narrative is so incredibly weird. MAD, just like any teams, will beat a weaker team in a BO5 most of the time, and lose to a better team in a BO5 most of the time. They played and lost 2 BO5 against better teams this split, but odds are that they will beat both SGB and EG in BO5. Idk why itโ€™s so difficult for Reddit to understand this simple concept.

1

u/Meridiuz24 Oct 03 '22

SGB they will definitely beat, EG is a 50-50, I don't believe mad are consistent enough to guarantee beating eg handily

2

u/Falendil Oct 03 '22

My point is that you can believe EG is most likely to win because you think theyโ€™re stronger but the argument of ยซย EG will win because MAD is shit in BO5 hur durย ยป is incredibly dumb, even for this sub.

0

u/Kisielos Oct 03 '22

As they have never proved to be even moderate competitive against top dogs? Even in years when they were first seed from EU? They are as medicore as it gets. With such a great results as finishing 4th in a group with OCE, NA, TR and BR region? Being basically the 3rd-4th worst team at world's 2020 (first ever eu drop from play-ins). Getting absolutely destroyed by DK in 1/8 year after that. They are not flashy, they don't have the overall x factor, that fnatic and G2 have, that makes them always competitive even against monsters from LCK or LPL. I just hardly see them succeed against motivated, explosive SGB.

u/TFTilted Oct 03 '22

Care to place a bet? 100 dollars says they win, Paypal. We can get someone on the sub to escrow.

-1

u/Kisielos Oct 03 '22

Ah shiet, now you got me intrested. Tho I am not the person that is willing to bet at all, especially with real money. Hmmm, I can bet for drawning happy lion if they win against buffalo and EG, with my pure talent in paint.

2

u/TFTilted Oct 03 '22

MAD is BAD, but they're at least better than some wild card team, come on. And let's be real, despite the narrative Riot is trying to push this year, minor regions ARE bad, and Vietnam and Taiwan ARE minor regions.

1

u/Kisielos Oct 03 '22

I mean, hmmm. Well, I do think that EU as a region is actually pretty strong depsite the fact that everyone is trying to lower our expectations. Tho, as I stated above, I do think MAD is one of the most medicore team in LEC and their ability to suprise is pretty low.

-2

u/TFTilted Oct 03 '22

They should just 3-0 this. SGB is bad.

Loud can for sure win too but DFM on proper form is genuinely a good team.

Right now the pick โ€˜ems is dead even for DFM LOUD which sounds right to me.

u/shepherdhunt Oct 03 '22

I want mad and loud but I actually want EG and MAD to be supportive to each other, each having a unique issue this year, MAD not winning a single bo5 and EG losing their adc. Instead of trash talking, build each other up as it would be a boon for western teams to have one of them win

u/simplyapollo Oct 03 '22

By my estimate MAD 3-1, DFM 3-1.

u/IceWeaselX Oct 03 '22

I picked MAD and DFM, but only because they'd each already won their Bo1 against tomorrow's opponents during Play-ins. Bo5 may not go the same way.

EG vs winner of SGB/MAD is the day after. You'll have the same amount of time to lock in your next picks as you do now.

You actually can get rewards lma0. And actually the pro scene isn't farm simulator for 20 minutes with 1 big team fight then a ff. Perhaps look into the pro scene a bit more before spouting random bullshit lma0.

You can get skins and stuff for getting a certain amount of picks right. And I never said it wasn't your choice, just that you shouldn't spout bullshit about something you don't enjoy lma0. Especially since it has a large following.

If you don't follow the pro scene, you can pick the coin to randomize your choices and still get rewards if you get lucky with the randomization

Actually I'll be the one telling you not to talk if you don't have the correct info here. Using games from seasons that occurred from almost a decade ago as representative as modern pro play is in fact bullshit lma0. So actually you should look into the scene more before commenting bullshit.

Nope, actually you haven't seen it. And actually one game is not representative of pro play at all lma0, especially games from years past. And actually I'm not shoving my opinion down your throat at all lma0. I'm just making you aware that you don't have a complete picture and thus, are spouting bullshit.

I'm surprised so many people thing MAD will win when they haven't won a bo5 this year.

2

u/AssPork Oct 03 '22

It's not that surprising. MAD only played two bo5s and lost to teams that are probably better than SGB, with 3-1 and 3-2 scorelines.
