We will never know what would have happened if Infamous has more patience 25 minutes ago when they were diving.

they seem fine to me?

They used to be a defend your base / defend your push thing, but now you see them being used for team fights in the middle. Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like teams consequently aren’t buying as much in items now for mid-game teamfight buybacks.

You stated something different about the game, but why do you consider that a bad thing? Mid-fight buybacks make fights more exciting and add more of a consequence for the next death, making the game more exciting and opening new opportunities.

From a spectator perspective it’s really irritating to see DPS poured into someone and then they pop right back up. In my case, I watched Infamous focus everything on Tiny only for him to buy back immediately. There is a normal mechanic for that sort of thing, which is the Aegis, and it has it’s own risks. The trade off of buyback as a cheap aegis is that teams are six slotted less and less often.

That said, someone was right when they said “it’s Craptacular.” I call for balance changes when things I don’t like happen to teams I want to win.

I wonder if EG is going to just try and absorb Newbee minus CCnC. Not that I think CCnC is bad (as I begrudgingly admitted earlier) but more that I don't see SumaiL leaving them

would they take the Aegis in their own country, it would also keep the legend of "no one has ever won two TIs" going

This is what I’ve wanted for the past five years or so. If OG repeated, it would be interesting though because it was two years in a row.

I know Sumail has made some words to the effect of wanting to be the first repeat winner, and I think Puppey has said something along those lines as well. But for a whole drat team to repeat with no change in the roster from last year? Even old NaVi changed a support year to year.

Curious how eg loses and everyone decides to laugh at them here

And then vg gets stomped even harder and they’re not laughed at or called names.
Nobody posts “yeahhh boys bleed communist” when VG wins.

But really, EG played bad. Like “worst game in Sumail’s career” bad. VG just had no answer for Carry Wisp. It’s a bit like CDEC having no answer for EG’s Techies in 2015. That poo poo happens. It feels bad. It doesn’t make good humiliation material like Artour AM or Alliance clicking Gyro.

It's super fair to say that game wasn't all on him, and there was gently caress all else he could by the point they were raxing anyway, but farming mid while your base dies was loving hilarious.

The DotaWTF video of it was the GIFs of Vince McMahon being aroused whenever RTZ spies tier 1 towers and neutral camps, all the while his base is given the Kings Landing treatment.

I'm fairly sure INF wasn't specifically using the chinese chatwheel sounds though. Perhaps crowds get a bit heated when they can understand the poo poo talk you are saying?

Maybe? Like most SA teams they looove the taunts that make wacky sound effects and using them during escapes or pulling your lane.

At least they’re no longer dropping items deliberately and faking out animations.

There is indeed a Furion cosmetic that people are asked not to use since it breaks the game. Feel like in the past I’ve seen tourney games remade when it was caught early enough.

Means LGD had the same problems, though.

KappaPride is the Twitch emote for “this is gay”, and earlier the guy had some message about doing sexual favors to get there.
