Cutty approves.


Any hero is cool as long as they DO something. Lifestealer and Gyro are boring as poo poo.

The only good Lifestealer play was RTZs 1v5.

Tinker is cool and good (again, until he is actually viable.)

I have no idea how Na'Vi can even fight into Spirit's lineup without an absolutely perfect engage. I wasn't watching the draft did Spirit do anything specific to mess with them?

so now on Thursday spirit plays unique with the following on the line

If Spirit wins they're guaranteed a tiebreak with the winner of ASM.Gambit/Extremum for the major wild card spot, and Unique has to play a tiebreak with Empire with the loser being relegated
If Unique wins they avoid a tiebreak with Empire for relegation and Spirit finishes out of the major

ASM/Ext is on Friday followed by Na'Vi vs VP. I'm not sure if the latter is just winner gets a bye to the playoffs and loser goes to the group stage or not. The tiebreakers say Bo1s are only for major/no major and relegation/no relegation but other regions have games for every threshold so I'm not sure if they just haven't been updated on the CiS page.

I'm not really sure it's that weird considering who's on the team. Fear hasn't been good for a couple years now, ppd's drafts get dragged a lot too.

I'm glad undying won because it sets up the possibility of a three way tie for first if they beat Quincy Crew

NA region has actually been exciting to watch. sadboys might get knocked into lower division, the tie breakers are also insane. Iíve only been watching NA and EU though, need to watch some highlights from other regions. I will say watching OG get slapped around by liquid was very satisfying to watch.

I frequently do not understand liquipedia editors



OG is also tied for third here because the dividing line is tiebreaker games (and also they RPS'd each other)

Nigma/HCE and Liquid/Alliance are tomorrow, with OG/Secret Wednesday. Realistically, to get to the Major OG needs Alliance to beat Liquid to force a three team tiebreaker for fourth at 3-4 with Tundra because the only way they beat Secret to get to 4-3 is if Secret fucks around with dumb drafts since they already clinched the #1 seed.

There's no way Secret is going to screw around that series. They have a change to dumpster OG and they are full on going to take advantage of it (I love OG, but I'd love a chance to flex on them).

The end of this group stage is basically an E/N for a bunch of teams.

tbf, og might just randomly show up to play against secret. their players definitely have the capacity to beat secret, theyre just way too high variance.

maybe, but if Secret is playing well I'm not sure even top form OG can beat them right now

EU lower division might have a fun tiebreak scenario, if Hellbear Smashers beats Spider Pigz tomorrow then three teams will be tied for first at 6-1, so they'd have to tiebreak to eliminate one of them since only two can advance to D1.

There's a reasonable chance that today while screensharing during work, someone asked me to schedule a meeting for tomorrow afternoon and I may have alt+tabbed to and sscreenshared the Dreamleague schedule and checked the Secret/OG game time before confirming the meeting time.

i mean, miracle has been single handedly losing the entire game since like 25 minutes in. he spent 6.6k gold on an abyssal that has done stone cold nothing because he gets black holed every single fight.
