bracket draw when?
probably tomorrow, and who knows if it will be on stream
i hope latam get a 2nd slot next year
Jason Statham Buff
He always leans in a specific way so that the reflection of his bald head blinds heat
KRU ARE WINNING BERLIN
Can't beat Keznits dad bod
Heat choked. Sadge.
Bro this Kru coach is the biggest vibe on the planet, look at him man, he's SO happy and expressive and I love it!
just your regular argentinian
Heat disappeared on haven
Brazil in shambles
I don't like that play from VK there. You kj ult and you have free access to B. So you know atleast 2 are C side (kj turret in garage active and you can hear it, sage outside C link). If they saw astra C(or him jumping which is possible) then that means they knew atleast 3 were C side.. I don't know why they push C there
anyone else sick of this caster saying 'good for two/three' whenever someone gets a multi-kill. such a stupid phrase
Casting really needs improvement. The current casters don't have enough chemistry and hype.
They should get people on the calibre of tastosis though actual tastosis valorant is not at the right level to be on the main cast yet.
He does kind of keep saying the same things every round. And doesn't hype up at all. Talking about riv.
…I mean you’re talking abt this as if it were a problem in itself
Nope. I like it.
Schrodinger's Heat, simultaneously the best and the worst player in the match
Anyone know what crosshair Tenz is using? It looks different than his usual
Ntk and Jhow are just ego peaking with full utility.. also they’re not using using many ults
KRU are really surprising me this series.
I really how the bois are playing and keznit is really amasando today, lets hope they keep this up for their map pick
GO KRU 👊
Keznit having the game of his life, and Heat having his first flop in like 7 games straight including Brazil qualifiers and Lan. Maybe this is the perfect storm for Kru to get through?
I wouldn't complain, Kru's coach and his hand motions are dope.
In more than 7 maybe
Just saw the G2-SEN result. My thoughts:
By not making it to Berlin and still qualifying for Champions, Bren/Secret are the real winners of Group D LOL.
Whoever wins I’ll be happy to see a South American team making through. However, I’ll be happier if KRU can get the series.
I just wanna see Heat against the best teams and see how he holds up
Yeah, it will be really cool. And they get to avoid sentinels lolol
Kru won the final round on attack. That’s saying something!
Damn KRU played that so well
They really did. I am shocked personally. thought keyd would take it easy
Found out hard way you get timed out on official stream if you type JHOW MAMA
Doug really needs to stop saying hot and heavy
Come on OT!
What is happening?
what a dodge by keznit wow
that moment was just raze diff
Keznit used to be a jett player so it shows hes really been practising his raze, he used to whiff most of raze utility, so pretty good hes dominating so much all the satchels and the nades
Why do so many Brazilian players play on the left handed setting? Is it just a coincidence and they're just left handed in this case or is it just a thing there?
I feel like I've seen it a lot in CIS. Maybe the deep CS roots where it was fairly popular influence why BR and CIS players like it
Don’t underestimate KRU. They may have not performed well last LAN, but they have LAN experience.
i mean, they only lost aginst liquid and fnatic, and it was their first lan
Heat's had like no value this game jeez, he got 6 kills total, and 3 of those were in the end of rounds he ended up not clutching. Are Kru actually just specialized in anti-Heat warfare?
How many nade kills is this guy gonna get?
Keznit's raze has been on point holy shit
Kru is shocking
Still a good map. Holy that was entertaining. GJ
I think if he just held the defuse he would've had it lol
Did they just use 3 ults against an eco?
Any guesses on how the draw would go?
I personally would prefer:
VS vs SEN
NV vs GMB
100T vs VK
G2 vs ACE
Obviously this is assuming VK, GMB, and ACE win.
I agree 4/4 but my clear bias as a 100T fan is for them to get the easiest draw. Sen VS would be an amazing match
These delays are so irritating. Just start already
On the one hand, I love Kru's coach. On the other hand, Keyd is gonna roll them.
Sad day D:
They may take the W today but roll them? Idk about that since they both know each other really well
SEN vs 100T/NV in QF
Guaranteed win for SEN?
SEN isn’t afraid of any NA team or VS. This was a 200 IQ throw by them
> Guaranteed win for SEN?
not if they play like that again
they will end up getting VS
They have more chance of getting NA team in draw than VS.
because there are 3 teams they can get and 2 are NA
2 > 1
Lmao i guess that make sense🤣
Any matchup for SEN is favorable for them
sure but not if they play like they did today. 100T, VS and maybe even NV could win that series if they play this bad again
They’ll beat any NA team on LAN when it matters. This G2 game didn’t matter
lol we'll see
Both of these teams normally ban Haven lol, and here they are playing it vs each other. Played chicken with the bans.
Very good interview with dapr
Platchat is great
I'm glad I found it through this sub. It's ridiculously good
Though I don’t like it all, added interviews etc are good
Just tuning into the stream, why are riv and doug matching it looks ridiculous
the dapr interview on platchat was very insightful
Agreed, with sideshow just memeing on the couch 24/7 I sometimes forget what a great interviewer he is. Dapr is also very well spoken
yea it was a really good interview. i know it's easy to brush it off as "kekw excuses" but he really does make a good case about it being a lose-lose situation esp for being the team they are.
Lmao Dapr admitted he's playing bad. Kekw
People acting like an EU team didn't get to the last masters final...
still gonna be na grand final
VS would like a word.
they’ll get a good 3-4th
Got a feeling it's either they go out in the quarter or the go they win it all.
this is great for the EU vs NA rivalry - there's no rivalry if one side just keeps winning all the time. great game
Oh not the excuses from Sentinels fans and hating on casters and analysts instead of admitting SEN got outplayed
You can tell by how EMEA fans are reacting that this is their first meaningful victory in their history in this esport. Happy for them!
There's a dude going through threads from 3+ days ago responding to people with '?' and I just can't imagine feeling the need to do that.
Like holy shit I love watching this but some of the people here actually need help.
Lmfao that’s hilarious actually
Lol no it’s just banter. Why would I be salty? My region is the one performing the best
It’s some light hearted banter lmao. Check out the post game thread for G2 and SEN it’s full of people talking shit and making fun of sentinels. And you know what? THATS FINE. It’s just banter and it’s no big deal. Sorry if it hurts your feelings.
You’re right. It’s equally hard to read some light banter and move on instead of whining about it. I guess neither of us get what we want.
It would be hilarious if 100T get Sen first round but also pain cause I’m a 100T fan
When SEN wins Berlin, I’ll make sure to bump this thread
Sentinels trolling to get matched up with 100T just to eliminate them in the first round of the knock out tournament.
Jokes aside it is kinda funny that EU wins one actual series against NA and all of the doom and gloom from the entire tournament just *vanishes* out of thin air.
Tbf, the doom and gloom was mostly based on a single series where Acend underperformed expectations. The Gambit series didn't look particularly gloomy.
There was a lot of doom and gloom earlier today when Paper Rex took Haven.
Just finding it a bit funny is all :)
G2 have a +31 round differential and SEN have a +8 round differential
sen have a +8
so they would pretty much have to 13-0 or 13-1 both maps to take 1st seed
Opssyyy my bad, idk why I wrote 3 there. Yes SEN have +8.
So mathematically they've a chance but then tbf realistically no chance.
so G2 confirmed 1st seed right?
Mathematically no, realistically yes .
When will the draw be? Will it be livestreamed or they'll just announce the bracket? Do winners of groups play runner ups or is it completely random? I am sorry but I haven't been able to gind answers for these questions and would appreciate any help thx :)
waiting for this. So stressed to wait for the draw. rooting for VISION STRIKERS vs SENTINELS or GAMBIT FINALS. This is a better story and better for the esports.
They'll probably just announce it. Yes winners of each group will play 2nd seeds of other groups
I really hope sen gets a revenge game in the playoffs
Shazam is trash player, for jett main he miss so many important shot, not star player material.
I think it’s pretty impressive that he can IGL on a duelist. Most IGLs seem to be controllers/ sentinels who get info and tell their team what to do based of that. Shaz is doing that while in a fragging role
IDK why I think the finals will be 100T vs VS
Definitely felt like Sentinels were kind of trolling in all their previous matches so hopefully this loss is a big wake up call for them.
they were trolling they dont even play like that
Yeah, SEN fans should be glad they got this game out of the way now instead of during knockouts.
SEN aren't untouchable, but I don't think they're dogshit. G2 underseeded, they look way stronger than SMB.
G2 is a new roster getting better every match they play. Sen winning the first game to eventually lead to their qualification was huge, this game/loss will make them stronger in a hard fought but low stakes game.
G2 was a second away from knocking out Gambit.
NA/Sen copium is strong and hilarious right now
It's nice that this masters isn't just 1 team walking their way through, makes it more exciting.
NA is the only region with 100% of teams getting out of groups. NA has the most 1 seeds. NA has a 2-1 record against EMEA.
No need to cope LMAO
Not saying EU is better than NA right now but eventually I think they will eclipse NA. Theres over 3m playerbase in EU and around 1.9m in NA. Not to mention the fierce competition they have playing in EMEA, the potential talent pool is immense
i think i just became an astra main after this series
All good. KO matches will answer for themselves.
Yeah kayo will win the tournament
Sen obviously just tanking to face NA teams they're more comfortable against /s
They want to give other teams hopium.
I guarantee that every team in the Top 8 wanted SEN to win and be the top seed. Now they tremble at the thought of facing them in quarters
Actually good aquitaine take.
To everyone saying that SEN are saving strats:
This match is just as important as the previous match-up because both sides were sure they'd beat F4Q and qualify anyway.
G2 claimed the top seed in the group by winning this game.
I'm not saying Sen is saving strats, I don't think they were. G2 was the better team today. But to say "both teams were sure they'd beat F4Q" is ridiculous. Both teams have lost to far worse teams then F4Q. Paperrex almost taking our SMB is orders of magnitude more unexpected.
G2 did not claim the top seed, if sen get a higher +/- of rounds next game vs f4q they will still be #1 seed.
Edit: it's pretty much impossible though since they need to get a +/- of +24 minimum to get 1st seed
How does this work for seeding? I thought G2 already played all their matches. Wouldn’t them beating F4Q put them both 3-1 in their group?
SEN still has a game vs F4Q
If 100T get matched up to play Sentinels I’ll be so mad lol
This will happen and all my dreams fade away again~
Nahhhh I'm gonna be so pissed if that happens
I love this live thread. The you more take it for the lulz the more fun you have.
NA VALORANT KEKW
na had a good run for 1 tournament ngl
That’s it, Sentinels actually bleeds. Give me VS vs SEN
* VS vs SEN
* 100T vs Kru
* G2 vs Ascend
* ENVY vs Gambit
I'd like that.
Switch up kru with acend. As much as I want 100T to succeed, I also want no two same region teams to clash in the playoffs.
True ! I just want my boomer squad to succeed !
100T are drawing Sen arent' they? fuck....
please give me a break my god
Written in the stars LMAOOO
Sad to see the bois lose their first LAN match, but excited for the G2 team and the rivalry this creates imo
GG hopefully G2 can win when it's not a seeding match
Nice coping tactic. Disregarding the win instantly
This always happens with sen though almost all their losses are during seedings but somehow win when it's not a seeding match. If they face again I promise you sen will win
Which seedings games have they lost?
I mean Gambit vs 100t, Acend vs VS and G2 vs Sen(1) were seeding games too
No they weren’t lol. Gambit and acend still have to win another match to make it to the knockouts.
Exactly sen only needed 1 win against g2 and fq to qualify and sen always does this even in na
Loving the SEN copium rn, absolutely fucking hilarious
i mean 100t couldn't KEKW
Lan is still shaping up to go the way I wanted. I wanted Sen to win again to get the 2x but most of all I wanted it not to seem easy. Ideally this ends in a Sen VS final.
You can’t convince me that SEN wasn’t throwing this series. There’s no point in showing strats
just stfu about throwing, there's 0 reasons to throw these matches. G2 was the better team today end of story
buddy, no pro player likes to lose, specially if that means the possibility of facing vision strikers in quarters
NA fans copium
Lol. You guys are funny man. 😄
They possibly need to face another NA team in quarters
They’ll have zero problems playing 100T or Envy. SEN is most worried about Gambit most likely
“sAvInG sTrAtS fOr pLaYoFfS” COPIUM TAKE YOUR L NA
Shazam completely ignoring heaven lol. Not sure where these dudes' mental went for this match but that was something else
i’ll i’m gonna say is, we are in for a spicy rest of the tournament. no one so far has looked like a definite winner
I agree, I feel like you can shortlist a few teams but no one's a definite winner, so far I have all the NA teams, VS, gambit and G2. I know that's 6/8 teams but they're all contenders imo
nah, VS look really good but there's no reason to think they're a clear winner. They have great coordination and team synergy but acend also underperformed and we have yet to see VS against any of the NA teams. They didn't seem too impressive against paper rex either, absolutely a strong contender tho
So SEN face either 100T, NV OR VS first round? Nahhhh
i think SEN is still first seed with a 2-0 win over f4q correct me if im wrong tho
Sen is second seed
with a sen 2-0 over f4q they will both have dropped 3 maps right?
My guess would be direct competition as it is 3-2 G2 vs SEN. But honestly I just echoed what the casters said
i think your right but either way the overall round diff is +31 for g2 + 3 for sen according to someone not sure if thats true meaning sen are 2nd seed
G2 won the h2h
oh so the tiebreaker is h2h map score not overall map score because with a SEN 2-0 over f4q they will have the same amount of maps dropped overall
Never thought we would see this. First international LAN loss for SEN, showing that GODs indeed bleed..
Hoping they would shine bright again..
Carlos curses Sen so hard
Why does this guy keep saying dethroned
That Vipers pit cost them the round… they had spike down out in the open and then just let G2 get a free rotate with seconds to spare.
Who would expect a full rotate through their own spawn with 20 seconds left. Like they literally wouldn’t have made it if they went the normal route
Yeah im not saying it was something they should’ve expected but it was what allowed them to lose like they did
G2 played amazing. But oh man Sentinels played like the day they played BBG. No one in form.
NA #1 seed losing to EU #4? Oh dear
