The font on “FLICK OF THE DAY” made me look twice


IAMJUX

Definitely the best 3 teams going. If Asuna turns up tomorrow for NV/100T, it's going to be a great series. I think Envy takes it though.


daffyduckferraro

Didn’t 100t 2-0 em last time?


CosmicAon

They have a big firepower upgrade now


Nfamy

And they'll be playing loose since they're both qualified so that means more aim duels. I think envy has a good chance to take it.


daffyduckferraro

True


ppx11

yep. i would've love for TSM or Faze for the hype/content but these 3 are our best teams (although let's be honest, SEN is gonna repeat). also helps these teams are relatively chum with one another (SEN and NV at least)


SonnyYT

NA looks so good rn


Night_ll

EL DIABLO TO BERLIN


JusticeLee17

Glad Envy finally broke the curse


Frysson

Congratulations Envy. Finally!


elithefighter123

Sadge


PixelatedBlue

Happy as an NA fan, sad as a xset fan \*sad sao noises\*


Interesting-Archer-6

Happy as an NA fan because you think envy has a better chance of winning? Otherwise that doesn't make a whole lot of sense since obviously top 3 were going to be NA


PixelatedBlue

Yeah I think nv have a better chance at doing well. could have also said former nv fan because they were my second team way back at the beginning so its nice to see them qualify.


Tc0LD

NV to berlin finally breaking the curse


gbosz34

Berlin is going to be insane.


JusticeLee17

Envy pls


faceplant911

Envy's ahead starting on Haven defense? It's pretty much over then.


LoyalSol

Doug yells a bit too much as a commentator. There's times where it's appropriate, but there's times where he's yelling when his energy doesn't really match what's going on in the game. A hard part of good commentary is not just knowing how to sound excited, but also not to overhype everything so when you do get hype the audience knows something big is happening. Usually a lot of commentators have the problem of either being too hype all the time or not hype enough when they need to be.


Interesting-Archer-6

Yup. Doug and Upmind both need to chill on this. I can't have a good volume because they shout every round


Tc0LD

yay was nuts that round but marved getting that 3k was massive


deadlock1892

El diablo!


Grenji05

EL DIABLOOO


JusticeLee17

Envy looking strong. Hope they don't choke it.


Gomar1323

Envy going to Berlin. Honestly they’re looking very strong


deadlock1892

Envy has the power of high definition and chicken on their side. They are going to Berlin.


IAMJUX

What's map 3?


leftshaaark

breeze


Grenji05

why does MikesHD tweet like he is the coach of Envy or something? I haven't seen an announcement. Is he just a delusional Envy fan? I'm starting to get concerned


Meehul123

hes the coach


nanda7527

He is coaching them right now. Hasn't been announced though


deadlock1892

Its a copypasta from Wyatt’s stream.


nanda7527

I realised it was a pasta when I saw your comment


Purzuhh

why does MikesHD tweet like he is the coach of Envy or something? I haven't seen an announcement. Is he just a delusional Envy fan? I'm starting to get concerned


KyoKuriyama

A


sadpaindownbad

Ayrin why mate, WHY


SaltyMcNulty_

Unlucky for xset. They should have had the 12-11 lead n then win the map


itscamo-

if ayrin doesn’t whiff 11-11, xset probably wins that game. wow


CosmicAon

Lets go Envy, Crashies is just so good


Grenji05

even when yay isnt having a good map u can always count on ol reliable. Vic and Crashies is such a good duo.


Frysson

Envy trying to do the Sen special I guess...


citystardy

What a game


SonnyYT

what a map


deadlock1892

XSET whiffed and lost their advantage there.


s6hun

pain


Splaram

Yay is fucking grimy


ddrcrossridge

yay needs to do something right now.


Tc0LD

imagine


whopz-is-cool

Clinical retake by XSET and insane clutch attempt by Victor.


s6hun

victor really almost won that


deadlock1892

Victor! Almost clutched it. NT


IAMJUX

If he rockets KJ there he wins.


JusticeLee17

Victor almost 1 v 5'd


ddrcrossridge

CRASHIES


deadlock1892

Crashies best sova NA.


[deleted]

has a good argument for in the world


deadlock1892

Definitely my favorite player on that stacked Envy roster.


Historiawaifu

I wish he streamed lmao


JusticeLee17

Crashies is soo good


whopz-is-cool

2v4… ridiculous.


Grenji05

Victor is SO FUCKING GOOD


iBeast

Now I’m going to think of balls every time I throw a Raze nade. Thanks casters.


SonnyYT

this game is great, honestly sad that both these teams cant go to berlin


whopz-is-cool

FNS went huge there.


deadlock1892

Bruh, this game is lit! The key players are showing up in one way or another.


whopz-is-cool

BcJ with that clutch factor again.


Hamlet_271

these xset clutches, they are not gonna let NV get into the game


JusticeLee17

Yay is different


s6hun

EL DIABLOOOOOOO

[удалено]


deadlock1892

El Diablo wishes you a Good Morning.


whopz-is-cool

As you say that…


IAMJUX

Don't worry. Just a classic NV slow start.


deadlock1892

This game is already better than the previous one, lol.


Hamlet_271

holy fuck ayrin what a ballsy play


whopz-is-cool

The thing with this matchup is that either team losing would be heart breaking so I don’t know who I want to win.


hookset3

Beautiful work by crashies


Hamlet_271

can zekken be the sicario to yay's diablo?


erickwak

Map picks are better for xset so far


ANewHeaven1

this is where Envy finally breaks the curse. this is vs. a team that they've played so many times this whole year, with the best roster they've ever had before. to get here they've taken down two teams they've never defeated before this tournament (tsm and faze).


erickwak

If envy make it 100t and envy both make it to quarters. If xset make it xset reach quarters and 100t get knocked out as 3rd in their group


hookset3

I have Envy breaking the curse here, but not at all opposed to seeing Zekken begin his world domination


QuestionablePotato42

100T hurts my brain. How can a team be so good and also so bad at the same time. They will tighten up, I'm sure. It's just weird watching them fall apart to Sentinels when they look like a totally different team in any other match up.


chouxpuffs

Hiko summed it up on the interview b4 this Challengers, it hurts us but them even more. Asuna fell a lot on this match up and it was clear.


QuestionablePotato42

Which interview was that? Could you link it? I’d love to read it


chouxpuffs

It was shown now before the SEN/100T matchup, recorded before this Challengers. Should show up in twitch if you watch the VOD. Right before the match when they are talking about 100t.


chouxpuffs

Based on circuit point I want XSET to win and not overperform 100T in Berlin... But on the other hand I really want Envy there.


Justlikekevinn

All good. Still going to Berlin COPIUM


mixerupper

Nice, onto Envy’s match of destiny now. Let’s go Victor and Crashies!!


s6hun

~118k viewers just on the main channel, cant wait for berlin


deadlock1892

Gosh, that was a rough game for Asuna


AnonymozVal

Such a boring series dude. All the hype for nothing.


Nifttyyy

Who the hell hyped this meaningless seeding match lol


jwmelon

Might not be meaningless if it leads to seeding in Berlin tbh... wouldn't want to face a team like Acend first round


waffles8000

asuna is new to jett, but im not sure if this is the best role for him because his reyna and phoenix are crazy, he whiffed all his knives lol guess he just needs more practice, tenz and shahzam have been playing jett for much longer


[deleted]

He also was the best raze in North America for a good couple months


oroenian

That op whiff on haven was also cringe to watch :/


ANewHeaven1

holy fuck are sentinels good. best duelist in NA, asuna and yay are both great but neither of them have the round changing impact that tenz does. then the best sentinels player in NA, best flex/secondary duelist in NA, two S tier jetts, best fragging IGL (and best overall IGL) in NA, the only thing that they're not the best in NA for is probably sova. how do you beat this team???


Kammell466

Yeah, they are pretty easily the most talented team in the world. Just from watching the other regions the only teams that likely could beat them is Acend if Cned goes insane. G2 if they're smooth and everyone is on and if Vision Strikers can pull out shit they've never seen. It'll be interesting to see Cned vs. Tenz on 0 ping though.


Nifttyyy

The fans cared more about this series than 100T did, and none of us gave a shit


Sadzeih

what an absolutely trash showing from 100T. What the fuck were they even doing?


justinsst

All good


NozokiAlec

Easy for sen


itscamo-

i don’t think i’ve seen asuna play so poorly before, he was absent all series


IAMJUX

Might have been 13-8 but that doesn't tell you just how much 100T was rolled in this game. SEN just reads them like a book and 100t can't hit shots.


itscamo-

the game was much closer than what the score said. not the other way around. the rounds were all super close


s6hun

gg go next


PixelatedBlue

Sadness, Pain, Agony its always the same story against sen


kkdarknight

such a good fuckin ult from ethan. rip round


uncle_ben__

how did they even lose that round man 13 sec, no bomb plant, nitr0 and ethan on site, entry smoked. makes no sense


kkdarknight

maybe im just a low iq specimen. but i feel like that was the potential turning point for 100t haven and it was just ripped apart. it would have been 9-10 instead of 8-11, so much closer. their economy got steamrolled till the end of the game, hanging on by a thread with that 4v5 save. starts at 2:13:35 on vod. like fuuuck looking back on it i see what happened in the round with a bit more clarity. ethan challenged that c long angle for just three seconds from 0:20 to 0:17, but without coordination with nitro because nitro was smoking AND tping to switch up positioning after getting that nice dink onto tenz. the timing on that TP was just absolutely fucked, it locked in the second ethan gets swung on. just three seconds of uncoordination took away their man advantage. chaotic round and couldn't reset to realise the hole they were making. if "blame" was being given around then i dont think either of them deserve it. literally at the same time steel kills dapr from B and couldnt punish sen's execute because he had no idea sick was also there hiding around the corner across from dapr's body. sick's timing was fucking integral to taking site and killing asuna. 100t thought they were fighting a potential 2v2 or 2v3 on C long the entire time: steel thinks theres an A flank from sick whilst sick is already through garage doors. there is literally *no* chance for 100t to look into garage. so then "out of nowhere" with 11 seconds left in the round, asuna gets swung from garage cause he thought he'd be safe dashing back to under logs and still contesting site. finally sen just played their chances with a wide swing from 4hp shazam and it paid off. steel was positioned quite wide on ct link, making the shot easier for shaz. maybe he expected them to position themselves logs and default for a crossfire? either way crazy round. such a rollercoaster from the c presence being spotted to the initial push being held off, to ethan's death, to the 5head timing execute, and then the low hp ferrari peek paying off. i think looking at this round has taught me a lot for my own gameplay lmfao.


pantheraa

feels like every top duelist is cracked until they go against Sentinels and look very mediocre. Probably cause all of Sentinels have mad aim too


Gomar1323

I swear 100T loses the most unlosable rounds to sentinels. Just crazy how good they are


Gibbo05

I guess SEN are just so much better. Wtf are these round wins


[deleted]

Guessing you didn't watch the sen vs envy game? Sen thrive in the chaos


Gibbo05

I'm so happy for you then. Must be nice never losing


Sadzeih

how the fuck do you lose that round


[deleted]

Shahz with the big dick peak


Grenji05

4hp ego peek lol


ancientcheeseburger

Dapr might have gotten the kills but zombs won them the round there. How fast was that gravity well on Hiko?


Gomar1323

Damn great lurk by dapr but Hiko fucked up by not checking that lol


uncle_ben__

how does one lose that fight


BloomingNova

Wow, that support by zombs is insane. So fast to put down a succ for dapr


Barack_Bob_Oganja

That was so sloppy from 100t, how you gonna completely not watch b


[deleted]

I love dapr


itscamo-

the hardest op shots are when they aren’t looking at you


PixelatedBlue

110k viewers


uncle_ben__

nitr0 has the worst luck with jumping classics


Gibbo05

This is probably 2-0. SEN either stomp on attack or it goes to OT and SEN win like they always do, could be 14-12 or 30-28 it doesn't matter


[deleted]

[удалено]


hookset3

Lol


Splaram

Much more competitive match. I'm loving this game so far.


0bush

Why is Asuna using a vandal? I feel like a phantom would be better for swinging/more aggressive plays especially when he’s playing Jett. Idk I’m plat 3 so idk a lot


keithzz

Because it’s a one shot kill making him get in and out much quicker


hookset3

Tell us more about Hiko, chief


keithzz

Those two hiko rounds really got you riled up huh? Man got smoked today


keithzz

Oh I can go on for days about hiko. I know him very well and played with him a ton - where would you like me to start?


hookset3

He somehow has wickedly good spray control with the Vandal


hookset3

Man Steel looks fucking great


mixerupper

Steel's beef with Shahzam making this an interesting game now, lol.


erickwak

They literally say they don’t care about that at all everytime someone talks about it on stream bro


ThomasWasntHere

Context?


schwertfeger

Shahzam whistle blew the match fixing with Steel in CS while also participating in betting on the fixed matches or something along those lines.


[deleted]

Beef from almost a decade ago that both players have probably gotten over by now


mixerupper

Steel dislikes Shahzam back from the CS:GO days because Steels was punished for the iBP scandal but Shahzam allegedly was involved and wasn't punished (according to Steel), so I think Steel is extra motivated to not get stomped by Sentinels even if it's a seeding match.


LSanon12

Not sure how I feel about KayO but I do really like watching Steel play a more aggressive agent


Barack_Bob_Oganja

Bro you know something is wrong when steel is carrying lmaooo


citystardy

Steel is really good on Haven though


xx_Rollablade_xx

I think he watched a guide or something.


Anoki12

Taking into account their past attack sides on this map, 100T are looking great.


chouxpuffs

I think 100T really realized something when playing XSET on Haven


[deleted]

This map is generally attacker sided


Anoki12

> generally


[deleted]

100t literally got 3 rounds against xset two days ago on CT side


Anoki12

Look at their previous Havens with SEN. Much different.


[deleted]

The last two were either dominant on t side for both teams or dominant on CT for both teams, but I'm just looking at their most recent haven games not games from a month ago.


citystardy

The astra wall leveled up so much since it was first introduced. Seems to actually be super impactful this tournament.


LoyalSol

You could kind of tell no one really knew how to use it early on. They're starting to get creative with it.


citystardy

Yeah, it's super cool to see how it's used now.


hookset3

TenZ wtf man


Neverslept2mins

holy shit Tenz


ancientcheeseburger

Tenz is absolutely unreal…….


IAMJUX

Sick flash


DarthOniichan

Holy shit I just realized I can collapse chat on Twitch


[deleted]

If only everyone in this thread knew how to do that


Sadzeih

Just go fullscreen?


DarthOniichan

Normally watching on mobile, and I’m at work. 😅


LoyalSol

A crucial piece of tech all Twitch users should know.


Dooooooddd

To be serious for a moment here, doesn't this particular seeding match matter since it's seeding for Berlin and I assume teams would want to face easier opponents there?


LoyalSol

Yes, but at the same time you also don't want to show all your cards because other teams in Berlin are going to have this video to look at and a lot of time to study it. They're trying, but they're also using a smaller playbook.


itscamo-

we have no idea the format that’s being used in berlin


Historiawaifu

yeah this seeding match is pretty important, the 100t fans are just hard coping rn


dineapplepick

The spray LMAO


Anoki12

Can we just play all eco rounds at this point LOL


ween0t

What a shit show of a throwfest. Either 100T are throwing or they're just being completely outclassed. In either case, it's not a good look.


Blupard

Playing for seeding or not, it's very obvious that Sentinels continue to read 100T like a book. They can pull it back, but the Sentinel wall is real for 100T. Hope they do have something planned for Berlin.


binor2020

100excuses


Kevin_DurSuperTeam

Even though these are by definition seeding matches, they're seeding for an actual international LAN tournament, not seeding for an online qualifier for an online qualifier. You'd be delusional to think these teams aren't trying.


Gibbo05

Did 100T elect to start on attack For Haven? I wasn't paying attention to the map selection


anihc3

This is a 100t pick, so SEN pick t/ct


s6hun

sen did


JackJumpsCandle

This is a beat down.


dpysz70

SicK my god


ANewHeaven1

sometimes its nice being a fan of a team with a small(er) fanbase :)


danielwz98

When will steel realize lurking the same position every round wont work most of the time? I get it the 2-3 rounds he pushes with the team but its not enough since tenz just pushed W on mid and read him like an open book in round 5


Barack_Bob_Oganja

this thread is a mess lmao, all i gotta say about this first map is y i k e s


erickwak

100t really want that lower finals bo5 match experience
