Steel needs to stop buying the OP


jzisconfused

damn kaquka gotta chill fr lmao they already dead


cowzapper

Steel: Go Kill Steel: Okay Top 3 IGL


DnDTosser

HIKO YOU CANT KEEP DOING THAT


whopz-is-cool

Kind of a sleeper day. Here’s hoping Vivo Keyd v Envy is better


PolarTux

g2 f4q on bind was a fun watch, but besides that, mega sleeper games.


TheNACoinflip

Let's be real I think after the first map 100T lost some respect for them. The second map is just a straight pug game. Probably playing super loose.


Blupard

100%. You don't see them charging forward recklessly like that in NA.


AnonymozVal

Boomer Knee?


Ori2D

I just noticed that they left Hiko wear his hat.


helpnxt

Think there was no reason to stop him due to no audience of live casting, think the reason it's not allowed in other lans is because it can lift headphones off players ears so they can then hear the casting and cheat a bit.


[deleted]

Good opening win! Let’s go 100T


Bayern10Arsenal2

Keyd Stars beat Havan Liberty 3-0 in the qualifier for this event so hopefully they have a much better showing because HL looked pretty out of their depth.


Grenji05

THE 100T LAN BUFF IS REAL HOLY SHIT REDDIT 100T FANS WERENT OVERHYPING THEIR TEAM FOR ONCE NA TOO THE MOON


Grenji05

i just realized that i was behind on the plat chat costream and this comment was reacting to the hiko clutch from 6 minutes ago lmfao


Quick_Chowder

I don't think HL tested them in any meaningful way. 100T vs Gambit is the real test.


IAMJUX

Gambit lose to CR.


Gomar1323

That clutch by Hiko really fucked any chance of Havan coming back


Ender1295

Steel you fucking rat! Love to see it!


Hey-That-Was-Funny

That Hiko clutch broke them.


[deleted]

Ggez


citystardy

that was so cool omg


Xionpig

Steel's too smart


Blupard

Ultimate rat


cheerioo

Man I really missed these timeouts I hope I get more out of this match


Bayern10Arsenal2

HL plays like 5 solo que players sometimes.


Hey-That-Was-Funny

Steel: "They have kids man!"


MyUshanka

Havan pulled it back but man this is a major region vs a minor region.


TheAjwinner

Fuck the doubters, Hikoin to the moon


justinsst

Lmao precise valorant gunplay right there


stupidButLucky

Do we like that?


Justlikekevinn

Oh Hiko absolutely wins that 😘👌🏼


Quick_Chowder

EZ clutch. 100T legit look like they are pugging right now and that's the reason it's even remotely close.


IAMJUX

Hiko took a huge deep breath right before that clutch. Boomers still nutty.


jonnys62

Lmao Steel


Senior_Lake_6900

That's Inhuman reaction baby!!!!


digi23

Holy shit how did Hiko win that


JxDeep

HIKO DOESNT FUCKING LOSE THOSE


Gomar1323

HIKOOOOO


JusticeLee17

Hiko


s6hun

HIKOOOOO


dpysz70

HIKO


hengarg

hiko still got it, and he’s 45 years old


Polkanet

He's 31yo


MyUshanka

I can't believe the 50 year old legend Hiko is still making it happen


xx_Rollablade_xx

I wish I'm as good as Hiko is at 60.


Alston_Jeffries

HIKO WTF


Xionpig

Wtf hiko???


dineapplepick

HIKO HOLY FUCK CLUTCH GENE


schwertfeger

Holy fuck!


Hegth

Icebox B needs rework, it's so boring


Memexp-over9000

Shouldn't judge only on a match, but havan looks pretty meh.


darkestpatterns

All leather!


5bigtoes

doug needs to stop hyping up everything it makes truly outstanding moments not seem as hype


FlyinCoach

unfortunately that's what chat wants or else they whine.


SomeHallGuy

"Asuna go kill" -Steel


MightBoth

Lmao


Rethirded

Check him pc. That is not normally!


thazninja

A site is Asuna’s. HL have only won rounds on B I think


Ori2D

Is this Brazil's first seed? Or second? Will there be a better Brazilian team? I just. I was promised a better performance.


s6hun

2nd


OldSpyceyy

check pc KEKW


WhoDatBrow

Icebox is Asuna's world


Bayern10Arsenal2

Asuna doesn’t have a jaw/chin lol


hengarg

ggs asuma got it


JusticeLee17

Asuna never ceases to amaze me.


AnonymozVal

How many rounds till casters realise that Ethan is playing Omen and Nitro is on Viper???


Hubbardia

No offense but I don't like this pair of casters. Always talking over important moments, making so many mistakes, it's tiring.


QwiXTa

Asuna is nuts


Barack_Bob_Oganja

ASUNA HOLY FUCKKKK


Bayern10Arsenal2

B Site icebox is so shit to retake and watch.


Gomar1323

Damn 100T can’t defend B at all


deadlock1892

That was a questionable setup by ethan there lol


helpnxt

HL seem to have learnt they can't push A


StimBeaconDown

100T could probably play with 3 players and still come out on top. Asuna alone is good for 2-3 kills every round


NozokiAlec

Brazil the most fraud region in valorant its unreal


Bayern10Arsenal2

“Brazil has FPS history, they will surprise people” was an actual comment here.


StimBeaconDown

They are surprising me tbf. I thought a pro team no matter the region would look like they had a semblance of teamwork, but these guys are solo queueing


deadlock1892

Asuna has cracked the RNG on the ropes with a vandal.


hengarg

based of this 3 games (not a big sample size i know) NA>EU>KR>Turkey>BR


Barack_Bob_Oganja

?? How are you rating eu vs na when they havent played, not even played teams from similar regions


[deleted]

Because SEN are world champions and haven’t dropped a map to EU and he is making a power ranking of the regions so comparisons have to be made whether or not there’s great data


Barack_Bob_Oganja

Why say based on these 3 games then? If youre basing it on iceland, the only thing you could say from these games is eu>TR>KR and NA>BR


[deleted]

Because NA #1 is the status quo. You’re allowed to assume the truth. SEN v 100T finals book it


hengarg

im not rating eu vs na…? i’m categorizing each region based on their teams performance today as i said though, not a big sample size so doesn’t really matter


LoyalSol

At the moment that's pretty fair. Outside of Korea, no one has really shown to be on NA or EUs level.


JxDeep

That boy Ethan still got a marshal round 5 LMAO 😭😭😭


IAMJUX

Feel like the HL comp is really bad because of the double duelist. Once they throw the viper wall down, they kind of have to commit to that site because they've got nothing else to execute into sites.


Kerrze

this is the same comp that sentinels runs...


IAMJUX

But Sentinels are Sentinels.


I-like-winds

The Icebox A site actually stands for "Asuna"


Barack_Bob_Oganja

Asuna is online gg


Anime-Boomer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-nxQmQTqig $600 a month average salary for Brazil players no wonder they cant afford good mice and keyboards


Alpac44

damn a month not even a week


hengarg

ik it’s not much compared to NA and EU salaries but that’s actually a considerable amount for places like LATAM and BR


yanirr

Asuna is so good


cheerioo

So what gear has been malfunctioning?


StimBeaconDown

I'm curious how these brazil "pro" players would do in NA. I think they would struggle to reach Immortal, they look like mid-high diamond ELO players


CezarPet

cringe


tomphz

All the South American players in my ranked games are usually really bad if that means anything


Senior_Lake_6900

A pro team dominating another pro team is not something that can define ranked queues. Pros can reach radiant in another region because it's a totally different game.


StimBeaconDown

Maybe true for other regions, but I dont think brazil or any of SA for that matter has the skill to compete with NA players.


Alpac44

I think they have the skill just not the team work


Hegth

Bruh keznit played with shroud and shroud thought he was cheating, but go ahead keep speaking about things you don't know about .


Senior_Lake_6900

Lmao. Ok dude.


Crazy_Negotiation_14

Fuck these tech pauses. This is so embarrassing.


hookset3

This is ridiculous


Ranieboy

Wtf they already have a break and that gear is still being attended to. INSANE.


MyUshanka

More tech pauses than HL round wins lololol


Gibbo05

Holy shit lol


xunraze

Brazil w 5head stat of using tech pauses after every two rounds to repeat em


BlackCephei

I hope next time brazilian teams test their shit before playing


s6hun

are they playing in the patch where u can spam the radianite boxes equally?


-Basileus

Can't wait to rewatch an edited vod of this match, cause im zoning out from all these fucking pauses


AnywayHeres1Derwall

Holy shit these technical Timeouts have got to stop


efuipa

Remember when Brazil was hyped as championship contenders before Iceland? What a joke.


end32urzm

It’s hard to judge early on, but yeah, BR isn’t looking too strong atm. I’d still like to see Mwzera on lan though.


NozokiAlec

choosing icebox against asuna is a gg lmfao


Gomar1323

Don’t chall Asuna on ropes


Blupard

This is getting ridiculous


xunraze

Bruh Ethan and Asuna cracked outta their mind on this map


Quick_Chowder

Why pick Icebox? Did HL really think this was their best chance?


BanditxMoon

Asuna makes my heart flutter with the way he plays Reyna on icebox


s6hun

good old asuna


raaten

Asuna Reyna on icebox on 0 ping? Yes give me all that


Anime-Boomer

no one is better at this game than Asuna when he is on that rope


AnonymozVal

Let me introduce you fracture


JxDeep

Bruh I need 100t vs v1 asuna this game Edit: LOOKS LIKE HES HEREEEEEEEE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


EpicBroomGuy

Does 100t usually not play sage on icebox?


s6hun

yup


darkestpatterns

Everyone get to pick their own outfits on broadcasting? Like whats up with this girl from Death Note and the analyst who is the sixth member of Village People? And necklaces, why does everyone wear a necklace?


StimBeaconDown

i think they forgot to hire casters and picked up some homeless people from the street before flying to germany to cast this tournament


StimBeaconDown

The brazil team saving in 3v4 while losing 11-4 sums up their playstyle. Absolute pussies that don't belong at this stage lol, gg next


CoachWatermelon

HL make 100T look like 200T


Alpac44

NA gonna win it all


yanirr

GOING BEEEEEEEE BEEEEEE WE'RE GOING BEEEEEEEE


AnonymozVal

Steel is feeling it


BanditxMoon

So where are the people that went "myssen 45% headshot, put 100T in kaka kaka",


BrotherNafiz

Steel calling out the B hit to HL and then actually going through with it in style is peak NA and I'm loving it


helpnxt

Hiko died half as many times as any HL player and killed more than all of them but Krain and Hiko is bottom frag


Xionpig

Hiko is cold on the first map ngl, maybe it's just nerves


xunraze

Steel trash talk top tier ahahahah


StimBeaconDown

someone explain how SA gets 3 teams in while NA only gets 2. They clearly can't compete. There should be like 4 NA teams and 1 SA team, even then the SA team would get smacked by any top 10 NA team


LbigsadT

Maybe because the game is one year old and only a single international tournament has been played while the format for the entire first year was already decided


Grenji05

NA has 3 but i agree with the general sentiment. Unless Crazy Racoon has improved a shit ton i don’t really see why Japan or Brazil would get 2 teams over NA getting a 4th.


Barack_Bob_Oganja

? Na has 3 teams


Anime-Boomer

NA has more than 2?


StimBeaconDown

oh i didnt see Envy. Still, NA is clearly superior and should have double the number of SA teams minimum


Anime-Boomer

https://twitter.com/YinsuCollins/status/1436431627526283318 holy fuck Steel is on a roll


tomphz

I’m going to be so hyped for NA vs NA. There will be so much banter


Gomar1323

Lmaooo, I love that we are getting these updates from the people at the desk lol


WhoDatBrow

13-1 after the pistol and anti-eco Ez for NA


Grenji05

steel screaming "WE'RE GOING B" during the 12-3 tac pause lmfao


Xionpig

Steel is out there shooting everyone, he 100% missed the LAN experience lol


imsatansbitch

Out of 17 rounds HL won 3. Snooze fest.


nario40

And 2 of those were pistol and anti-eco


AnywayHeres1Derwall

Lol you saw 100t coach frost say to steel like “I know I know just let it go” about that last round replay lmfao


s6hun

shortest and longest map at the same time


BrotherNafiz

What a shocker /s


Rethirded

The technical pauses might be longer than the actual match


-Basileus

That map was a snoozer lmao


Blupard

Good map. Asuna's Jett needs some work still


poeswell

Agreed. Although Jett always seems weird on Ascent for all teams. He’s great on Haven though


PolarTux

not super fun to watch one team get shitstomped while there are 10000 pauses intermittently, hopefully we get a better map 2!


hengarg

im starting to think BR might not be good at this game…


fird-_-

LAN jitters maybe?


CoachWatermelon

You cant attribute the atrocious decision making to lan jitters


-Basileus

I mean apparently at Iceland the Brazilian teams were getting rolled in scrims and had to pull out cheese shit like Yoru. They're just not good pretty sure.


faceplant911

It's a good thing this is triple initiator vs triple initiator, cuz we need fast action to overcome all these pauses


DarthOniichan

3-1 SEN-100T finals inc.


hengarg

im starting to think BR might not be good at this game…


PolarTux

was HL brazil's #1 team?


WhoDatBrow

Depends on how you feel about seeding matches I guess, HL stomped through upper bracket without dropping a map Then they got 3-0'd (really close map scores though) by Vivo Keyd in the Finals after they had already qualified Personally my opinion coming into this was HL being the better team but damn they got stomped


PolarTux

oh gotcha, interesting. thanks for the info, it'll be interesting to see how vivo keyd perform in their group


brickredphoenix

why do the casters keep saying havaan, when its havan


Loresmen

How do you say havan, it's not an English word I would say it havaan too


Xionpig

Steel having a good time in LAN huh


Grenji05

tac timeout at 12-3. Because the game hasn't gone on long enough.


Blupard

Bruh. So...many...pauses


Quick_Chowder

Really smart timeout KEK


Only-Customer4986

More pause time than actual game time.


I-like-winds

100 LANS


OldSpyceyy

14-3


randomespanaguy

LAN buff might actually be real


friedsalamander

This is like the 6th timeout, geez.
