secret vs alliance game 1 is real good

Would that game be technically one of the only mega-creep comebacks in TI history?

The problem with Alliance is that has been the book on them for this roster. They usually play really well in lots of games but make one or two bad decisions and throw. I don't know if they can figure it out while at TI but I doubt it

TI is a crucible. Lots of teams have issues at the start of TI that start to disappear as the tournament goes on.

Yeah the biggest issue with EG is that they look like they're just going through the motions every single game. It seems to be way more a player motivation issue than not understanding some sort of fundamental information about the metagame. You can imagine the team sitting there looking disinterested as everyone plays the same heroes every game, making the same mistakes

OG won ti after being poo poo in the first 2 days of group stage. Literally anything is possible.

Also I think Secret is in a weird Alliance in TI3 or Wings in TI6 position. I think every team needs is going to be gunning for them and Secret has historically shown problems in the bracket as people figure them out.

It's not worth looking into day 1 performance too much but OG had to play LGD, Liquid and EG for their first 3 group stage games.

And OG got bodied by EG in groups last year and then in turn were able to beat them convincingly in bracket!

On the other hand, Sumail just building whatever the gently caress he wanted in game 2 vs Fnatic because gently caress lifestealer. I get the feeling nobody on EG really even likes anyone on EG very much.

I have a few questions since I haven't watched for a while:
1. Is there a good guide to the current meta?
2. Why does Tobi still have a microphone?
3. Did EE gently caress up in a baffling way to not make it to TI?
4. Can I leave china to ppd?

No because we have a single day of the tournament to go off of
Because he's still a good caster even though a few people here cry about him like he's the worst ever for some weird reason

Some weird reason.

Also I just can't stand his voice, and the way he pronounces Drow/Aegis.

Tobi sucks and still has a job because heís a legacy and people who only care about hype like his loud idiot voice

The upper bracket meeting almost was an "easy" 2-0 for EG before the true ana shenanigans started that carried them through the rest of TI
