Hoping and praying for an all EU/NA final so we see creative camera work to not show an empty arena

Well they'll have 8 teams there so it's a good start.

10 if you count CIS.

Thinking about it, even though they're SEA you could see a pretty empty arena if TNC goes deep as well.

Pretty sure, yeah. Sucks for the Bulldog stack idk why they wouldn't just advance the previous team that lost. I understand not doing so for every team going back however long but like it wouldn't slow down logistics significantly to do so. Idk, faceit handles dqs in an extremely dumb way.

faceit handles everything in an extremely dumb way but valve will never do anything about it because that would require actual effort

so because of the way the EU schedule worked out, we're guaranteed a tiebreaker round



Singularity/AM is happening right now. If AM wins (not looking good ) then they tie Chaos and Aachen City, and Singularity could make it a five team tie for three spots after that with a win against TFT. If TFT wins then Singularity is out and it's a three team tie for two spots.

If Singularity wins this game against AM, then their game against TFT is a one game playoff for bracket stage, with the loser falling to the three team tie with Chaos and AC for two spots.

Midas mode will return and they're using indiegogo to sell the map and other perks.

Slacks can be grating but this is an interesting idea, if they actually get a person to be Roshan in VR that'd be amazing. And of course everyone hopes that this will happen
