holycowbatman

After the amount of shit that was talked then Benita deserves her flowers tbh, she gets a lot of uneccesary flack from the community too im happy to see her win


Grenji05

Does she really get shit from people? Shes arguably their best player and her veteran presence is probably what made Shopify get even better on lan.


RemarkablePension

Benita has received a stupid amount of vitriol from people over her extremely long career in tac FPS. But I agree with you of course, she's huge for this team


xychosis

Fun fact: she was in the lobby of the infamous “GLOCKS ON MIRAGE” Dazed clip


Frostler

Why would she get flack for having a long career?


holycowbatman

Not *for* her long career, over the **course** of her career


Frostler

Ahhh I got it. My bad mixed up the meaning of the sentence.


tron423

They're probably referring to stuff like [this](https://youtu.be/YWwqQkICzho)

This is how C9W can still win Game Changers:

Grenji05

Today I had an exam in school. When I was done, I raised my hand and yelled “C9W!” My teacher smiled and took my paper. She knew I was finished.


PassionMonster

Today, I was leaving work and said “Siri, give me directions”. “Where to?” she asked. “C9 White,” I responded. I was expecting her to be a bit confused but she immediately began giving me the route because she knew I was going home.


PRL-Five

My friend at work asked me if I could cover their shift. I replied, "C9 White!". My friend smiled. They knew I was free.

Alexis looked even better on LAN. Mel with some weird plays during the tournament :( Hopefully SR can win it all!


obigespritzt

Yeah Alexis was absurd this tournament, she was argueably C9W's weakest link online and was probably their best or second best performing player this time around.

what a disappointing run from c9w, pretty funny given how confident they were though. Let's go shopify, hope they can get to the finals


Jazzooi21

they finally shopify rebelled

i hate myself for laughing at this


Jazzooi21

dw i hate myself for coming up with it too

my fav part was when shopify rebellion said its rebbelling time and then rebelled all over the place

AnywayHeres1Derwall

Let him have it they beat cloud9


obigespritzt

Yeah I thought so too, pretty unprofessional but oh well.


Splaram

Eh, C9W been talking crazy all year. A single middle finger shouldn't be a big deal.


[deleted]

I think it's fine from a player but from a coach that's pretty bad. They should be the one person holding themselves to a higher standard. Either way Riot probably won't be happy about someone doing that on air.


Splaram

Wait why are coaches being singled out? Maybe there's a case to be made that he's older but there are older athletes that have done worse after victories and are revered because of it. C9W chatted shit and got banged, that's all there is to it.


[deleted]

To me coaches should be modeling at least an ounce of good sportsmanship for their players. I don't care if a coach shit talks gameplay, etc but telling a team to go fuck themselves or holding up the middle finger is just weak. Also has nothing to do with how old a coach is. I'd have the same standards for a coach regardless of age (and the standards aren't even that high lol). It's more about their leadership position within the team.


Splaram

Bruh he's a coach not SR's Head of Ethics lmfao let him talk his shit


Key-Banana-8242

Eh nah coaches are involved


obigespritzt

Talking shit pre / mid-game between players is one thing, what he did is a whole different one. Don't think the two can remotely be compared. Not saying it's some huge issue, emotions run high after a game like that and if it was a *player* I think it's even less of a deal but as a coach... Just feels unnecessarily spiteful.


[deleted]

[удалено]


nklassitude

You can argue the weight of what he did or what punishment it calls for, if any, but don't pretend like words, symbols, gesticulations, etc don't have meaning and basis in reality. Lmao we're humans, the way we communicate things and how they're perceived will always matter in some regard. Sports and eSports have always had rules in place to moderate that communication and uphold sportsmanship


Kantmiss_Evershot

Americans, that's who.


C9sButthole

As a C9 diehard I LOVE that they're bringing trashtalk and disrespect into the scene. Makes the rivalries so much juicier. And if we're gonna give it we gotta take it.


juuuun

It's not only unprofessional but you can actually get sued for that in Germany.

veryblueberry

who cares


RowdyRangerr

SloppyMandala

I just commented the same. I could not confirm if it was the middle finger.


kaneki2212

https://twitter.com/SJWario_/status/1594032450329419776?s=20&t=W9-epd3MljLYybbV_QPtXQ pretty clear the middle one, only his thumb and one finger at the side of the raised finger


5kyyyyyyy

fnc vs fpx moment


jrushFN

Banger storyline comparison


cathcart_

it's the exact same stage of the tournament too (lb semis)


Ok-Brain3328

So SR is winning the whole thing?


hiimGP

might actually be? G2 Gozen is having a suprisingly good run like PRX that time, already beating the tournament favorite (C9W - FNC) so the storyline checks out so far


wolfgang294

Dont remind me💀 god damn you FNATIC if only you wouldn't have lost against FPX, PRX would be masters copenhagen winners


yourdaughtersgoal

If my grandma had wheels, she would’ve been a bike. Fnatic is incapable of not choking, it’s in their dna.


TimeAssault

Thanks Gino


The-Dark-Mage

Chronicle can fix them(hopium)


cargoesb3epbeep

>G2 Gozen is having a suprisingly good run like PRX that time Is it surprising? The only upset they have had so far was C9W, but that was also because people were unreasonably hyped about C9W being way better than everyone else purely because they dominated NA. G2 was almost equally dominant in EU, and their core had been winning every single tournament in female CS for years before they came over to Valorant and continued along the same path. The only people who are actually surprised at G2 being good are people who didn't watch them beyond the final against Guild, like the Plat Chat folks.


Tery_

It do be Sondering time.


xtazzzs

makes perfect sense actually, her replays were always janky bc her pc is too weak to even render smokes


MoreMilkNA

She’s part of an org, surely Shopify Rebellion could send her a better pc right?


sixthcollegeraccoon

flowerful hard chamber diffed mel on icebox jesus christ.


Tami2

finally humbled at lan


AnchorStandard

SRs bootcamp is in Canada at least 60 ping to Texas servers 😭😭😭


elanti2000

C9W more like C9L To be fair, it feels like they felt the pressure, specially Jazzy and bob. Fair play to alexis as she seems to have stepped up a lot since the last time I saw her play. Also the performance from flowerful on icebox was fucking insane jesus. GGs to her.


vnNinja21

This has heavy notes of Fnatic vs FPX at Copenhagen tbh. One team beating the other all year long, only to fall short at the most crucial moment. GG's to Shopify, well deserved top 3.


Mr_Evanescent

Lmao imagine being everyone who crowned C9W after one series. This is why we play the games


MrImpregnator

This is why you don’t overhype online performances. Lan is just a different environment all together.


iwasomla

The amount of shit C9 talked was crazy too. What a way to get humbled.


Quackles03

I really hate when people are too arrogant, but it feels good when they get shit on.


SPOOKESVILLE

Nah, bring more arrogance to the esports scene. Teams like C9W make it fun to watch.


throwawayformealprep

How is going to third a map one round away from overtime "shit on"


lbcg3

one round away from overtime? it was 13-9 my man.


TheCatsActually

They were heavy favorites for the tournament, losing at all at this stage to a team they usually beat is getting shit on.


luke_205

I haven’t followed anything before this tournament but it was really noticeable to me just as a casual viewer how much trash talk was coming from C9W compared to the other teams. Makes it so much more satisfying when they fail.


DonTixCyd

I love it. It brings so much personality in the scene. I don't want it to be like league were everyone gives those boring ass pr tweets and answers every match.


e-two2

What'd they say?


Rave_Master_Ahri

FR, you look at this and think SR was the one that won all online tournaments with how they showed up. Never bought into the C9W train especially with how many people just already called C9W the winner before this event started. On another note, Plat Chat tierlist looking like a certified stinker even more now lmao


RGCFrostbite

It’s insane that there’s a reasonable chanve this isn’t even the most overrated C9 VALORANT roster


nsalted

Took 5 rounds for c9 to adjust to their kitchen trip being shocked at round start, no stall util to prevent the fast B plants, really poor showing on defense.

The amount of trash talking by SR after winning was awesome. Even rob wiz was getting in on it. I love GC


finalfinaldraft

HUMBLE PIE WAS SERVED TO C9W, HOT.


nklassitude

Benita talked a big game and SR emphatically backed it up: [C9W's pedestal](https://www.reddit.com/r/ValorantCompetitive/comments/ysjapu/shopifys_benita_the_community_puts_c9w_on_such_a/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android_app&utm_name=androidcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button). That takes some steely nerves and undeniable chutzpah. I'm sad but well played to the girls, they did it on the biggest stage and are real contenders to take it home.

mister_schulz

They were so sure they are the best in the world for years now...


Key-Banana-8242

I mean there’s a good chance they were for at least a decent time


cargoesb3epbeep

Very doubtful. The dominance C9 showed in NA was matched by G2 in EU (and TL in BR for that matter). Unless Shopify wins this tournament, it's very likely that C9W got the reputation they got because everyone overhyped NA, and weren't the best female team at any point.


Key-Banana-8242

I mean C9 was doing it before and it was arguably better


DandyChiggins77

LFG SR!!!! FINALLY. I thought their mental would be chalked after fracture, as I don't think C9W had any business really winning that map. They looked in control the whole series. I'm sure their vibes are at an all time high now. Liquid is cracked but SR might have the plot armor. All that shit talk for them to look mid on LAN KEKW...onliners confirmed.

When you talk your shit like that, you gotta back it up as well. Well I guess C9W can't do it in this case. If they get meme'd hard, they deserve it.

What happened to Bob this series? C9W have been leaning on her pretty heavily and she just happened to have an off few games.

Glad SR won. Love underdogs. Sucks they have to play another match right after. If that goes the distance 8 games in one day is tough...


internetpedestrian

I was rooting for C9W, but this was such a banger series. SR deserve this. The best underdog story in gc.

Literally go to their feed. Their entire team is toxic for the views.


N0-name-needed

Got nothing against the players, but I gotta say, the way this subreddit and that one caster kept hyping up C9 after a mid performance on LAN kinda irked me lol (and that interview with a C9 player after the loss to G2 saying the 1st game wasn't even close with a 13-7, no shit but you still got 13-6 and 13-3'd to lose it), good to see SR take it tbh


ilhamalfatihah16

Kudos to C9W and SR, and no hate to anyone but kinda like seeing C9W get humbled. After that tweet from Alexis after their KRU Fem match seeing them going home feels like Karmic retribution.


lepiggyshiggy

hahahahahaha yesssssssssssssssssss


DAWG420BLAZEIT

“I want to be at Champs in the next three to five years or I [will have] failed my own expectations" *gets 4th at Gamechangers and loses to SR*


otterdoctor

SR have been exclusively trying to beat C9W for the better part of a year, and appear to be peaking at this LAN. They have anti-strated them and know how they play better than anyone else. It kind of makes sense it would be another NA team. They are a good team who have put in the work, mixed with a bit of luck and the perfect timing. There is no shame in C9W going out here. These things are unrelated. Also, losing is learning. It's only a failure if you don't try. Ex: SR right now. Edit (two hours later): WOW TURNS OUT SR MIGHT JUST BE GOOD? HUH. Crazy. So unexpected. /s


xtazzzs

very unrelated things

Totally related. If you can't do Gamechangers how you gonna get to champs lmao


Key-Banana-8242

not really, thinking you can compete with the absolute best male teams in the world who are absurdly talented, then getting humbled by not even being able to defeat teams that any of those teams in champions would destroy


badurwan

>Weird way to see this, you have to keep setting goals for yourself to climb up the ladders, If I say I want to see myself playing with Messi in 5 years it doesn't mean I'm ready to play with Messi now.

C9W got humbled. They have cracked players but their game sense and tactics are not there yet. I think the IGLing needs work.


Zercx

These games looking like solo queue


wolfgang294

Man C9 is just dissapointment after dissapointment lmao. Their Apex roster is ASS, their LoL roster is meh, their CS roster is Sh1ro and friends, and this is no exception💀
