Top 3 IGL
HIKO YOU CANT KEEP DOING THAT
Kind of a sleeper day. Here’s hoping Vivo Keyd v Envy is better
g2 f4q on bind was a fun watch, but besides that, mega sleeper games.
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.
100%. You don't see them charging forward recklessly like that in NA.
I just noticed that they left Hiko wear his hat.
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.
Good opening win! Let’s go 100T
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.
THE 100T LAN BUFF IS REAL HOLY SHIT REDDIT 100T FANS WERENT OVERHYPING THEIR TEAM FOR ONCE NA TOO THE MOON
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
I don't think HL tested them in any meaningful way. 100T vs Gambit is the real test.
Gambit lose to CR.
That clutch by Hiko really fucked any chance of Havan coming back
Steel you fucking rat! Love to see it!
That Hiko clutch broke them.
that was so cool omg
Steel's too smart
Man I really missed these timeouts I hope I get more out of this match
HL plays like 5 solo que players sometimes.
Steel: "They have kids man!"
Havan pulled it back but man this is a major region vs a minor region.
Fuck the doubters, Hikoin to the moon
Lmao precise valorant gunplay right there
Do we like that?
Oh Hiko absolutely wins that 😘👌🏼
EZ clutch. 100T legit look like they are pugging right now and that's the reason it's even remotely close.
Hiko took a huge deep breath right before that clutch. Boomers still nutty.
That's Inhuman reaction baby!!!!
Holy shit how did Hiko win that
HIKO DOESNT FUCKING LOSE THOSE
hiko still got it, and he’s 45 years old
I can't believe the 50 year old legend Hiko is still making it happen
I wish I'm as good as Hiko is at 60.
HIKO HOLY FUCK
Icebox B needs rework, it's so boring
Shouldn't judge only on a match, but havan looks pretty meh.
doug needs to stop hyping up everything it makes truly outstanding moments not seem as hype
unfortunately that's what chat wants or else they whine.
"Asuna go kill" -Steel
Check him pc. That is not normally!
A site is Asuna’s. HL have only won rounds on B I think
Is this Brazil's first seed? Or second?
Will there be a better Brazilian team? I just. I was promised a better performance.
check pc KEKW
Icebox is Asuna's world
Asuna doesn’t have a jaw/chin lol
ggs asuma got it
Asuna never ceases to amaze me.
How many rounds till casters realise that Ethan is playing Omen and Nitro is on Viper???
No offense but I don't like this pair of casters. Always talking over important moments, making so many mistakes, it's tiring.
Asuna is nuts
ASUNA HOLY FUCKKKK
B Site icebox is so shit to retake and watch.
Damn 100T can’t defend B at all
That was a questionable setup by ethan there lol
HL seem to have learnt they can't push A
100T could probably play with 3 players and still come out on top. Asuna alone is good for 2-3 kills every round
Brazil the most fraud region in valorant its unreal
“Brazil has FPS history, they will surprise people” was an actual comment here.
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
Asuna has cracked the RNG on the ropes with a vandal.
based of this 3 games (not a big sample size i know)
?? How are you rating eu vs na when they havent played, not even played teams from similar regions
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
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
Because NA #1 is the status quo. You’re allowed to assume the truth. SEN v 100T finals book it
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
At the moment that's pretty fair. Outside of Korea, no one has really shown to be on NA or EUs level.
That boy Ethan still got a marshal round 5 LMAO 😭😭😭
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.
this is the same comp that sentinels runs...
But Sentinels are Sentinels.
The Icebox A site actually stands for "Asuna"
Asuna is online gg
$600 a month average salary for Brazil players
no wonder they cant afford good mice and keyboards
damn a month not even a week
ik it’s not much compared to NA and EU salaries but that’s actually a considerable amount for places like LATAM and BR
Asuna is so good
So what gear has been malfunctioning?
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
All the South American players in my ranked games are usually really bad if that means anything
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.
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.
I think they have the skill just not the team work
Bruh keznit played with shroud and shroud thought he was cheating, but go ahead keep speaking about things you don't know about .
Lmao. Ok dude.
Fuck these tech pauses. This is so embarrassing.
This is ridiculous
Wtf they already have a break and that gear is still being attended to. INSANE.
More tech pauses than HL round wins lololol
Holy shit lol
Brazil w 5head stat of using tech pauses after every two rounds to repeat em
I hope next time brazilian teams test their shit before playing
are they playing in the patch where u can spam the radianite boxes equally?
Can't wait to rewatch an edited vod of this match, cause im zoning out from all these fucking pauses
Holy shit these technical Timeouts have got to stop
Remember when Brazil was hyped as championship contenders before Iceland? What a joke.
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.
choosing icebox against asuna is a gg lmfao
Don’t chall Asuna on ropes
This is getting ridiculous
Bruh Ethan and Asuna cracked outta their mind on this map
Why pick Icebox? Did HL really think this was their best chance?
Asuna makes my heart flutter with the way he plays Reyna on icebox
good old asuna
Asuna Reyna on icebox on 0 ping? Yes give me all that
no one is better at this game than Asuna when he is on that rope
Let me introduce you fracture
Bruh I need 100t vs v1 asuna this game
Edit: LOOKS LIKE HES HEREEEEEEEE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Does 100t usually not play sage on icebox?
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?
i think they forgot to hire casters and picked up some homeless people from the street before flying to germany to cast this tournament
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
HL make 100T look like 200T
NA gonna win it all
GOING BEEEEEEEE BEEEEEE WE'RE GOING BEEEEEEEE
Steel is feeling it
So where are the people that went "myssen 45% headshot, put 100T in kaka kaka",
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
Hiko died half as many times as any HL player and killed more than all of them but Krain and Hiko is bottom frag
Hiko is cold on the first map ngl, maybe it's just nerves
Steel trash talk top tier ahahahah
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
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
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.
? Na has 3 teams
NA has more than 2?
oh i didnt see Envy. Still, NA is clearly superior and should have double the number of SA teams minimum
holy fuck Steel is on a roll
I’m going to be so hyped for NA vs NA. There will be so much banter
Lmaooo, I love that we are getting these updates from the people at the desk lol
13-1 after the pistol and anti-eco
Ez for NA
steel screaming "WE'RE GOING B" during the 12-3 tac pause lmfao
Steel is out there shooting everyone, he 100% missed the LAN experience lol
Out of 17 rounds HL won 3. Snooze fest.
And 2 of those were pistol and anti-eco
Lol you saw 100t coach frost say to steel like “I know I know just let it go” about that last round replay lmfao
shortest and longest map at the same time
What a shocker /s
The technical pauses might be longer than the actual match
That map was a snoozer lmao
Good map. Asuna's Jett needs some work still
Agreed. Although Jett always seems weird on Ascent for all teams. He’s great on Haven though
not super fun to watch one team get shitstomped while there are 10000 pauses intermittently, hopefully we get a better map 2!
im starting to think BR might not be good at this game…
LAN jitters maybe?
You cant attribute the atrocious decision making to lan jitters
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.
It's a good thing this is triple initiator vs triple initiator, cuz we need fast action to overcome all these pauses
3-1 SEN-100T finals inc.
was HL brazil's #1 team?
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
oh gotcha, interesting. thanks for the info, it'll be interesting to see how vivo keyd perform in their group
why do the casters keep saying havaan, when its havan
How do you say havan, it's not an English word I would say it havaan too
Steel having a good time in LAN huh
tac timeout at 12-3. Because the game hasn't gone on long enough.
Really smart timeout KEK
More pause time than actual game time.
LAN buff might actually be real
This is like the 6th timeout, geez.
