LoL eSports Discussion

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

Maybe that's why the western teams should of just lost early instead of blowing their load in quarters just to get swept. Maybe the series would of at least been close.

Yeah, but IG was the better team. Eastern teams didn't actually do better outside of IG and arguably KT. A region is more than 1 team.

This is really the issue, imo. We got so many games so quickly in the group stages, and then it goes quiet for a week at a time. Riot needs to do what FIFA does and have less time b/w games.

Maybe Eastern teams should suck less and not lose to Western teams in the quarters.

I thought Rekkles and sOAZ were the only fnc players not constantly shitting themselves the entire series

Having Bwipo in after getting smashed game 1 was awful. Once TheShy knew he was better, he got Dyrused. sOAZ came into game 3 and treated TheShy like shit. He didn't bop him but you can feel the disdain sOAZ had for him from how he was laning. He played very cool in the face of a monster.

Rookie v Faker is finally a hype matchup. Last time this was a thing it was only because KaKAO was so good up until he wasn't.

I'm not cheering for SKT ever if they sign Smeb. Even if they try to be as likeable as possible by signing Rush, retaining Faker, and throwing Bang in a river. The fact that Smeb is in talks to join SKT disgusts me.

DamWon is probably overrated. I'll be happy if Griffin smashes everyone, but the most likely scenario is that SKT comes back. An SKT I'll hate more than 2017.

Bwipo pretty much tilted himself out of existence. Like.. the first couple deaths weren't really his fault but gosh.

Caps underperformed, but I think arguments that he was "exposed" are incorrect.

IG was much better, and that's not too surprising given the lead up. I think it's ridiculous to immediately shit on a team for losing 3-0 to the eventual winners though. FNC looked great in the tournament. The right team won worlds this year.

Stop being teenage salt monsters.

And I'd say the same thing about Europe if FNC 3-0ed with both sides having shit for drafts.

Don't have to know how much damage people do if you don't get hit with it because you're not forced into face checking.

New SKT so far:

Huni (offer made)
Peanut (offer made)
Faker
Teddy (in talks to sign)
???

We know at least three starters have left. Those would be: Thal, Bang, Effort. Blossom's been on the bench and was never really liked by the coaching staff so it's safe to assume he's gone. Wolf is on the bench because he's apparently been dropping weight for surgery all year. He can't start. Untara, Blank, and Faker are still in contract. Rumor mill makes me think that both Untara and Blank are being retained as subs. I don't think the fifth is Mata because Huni/Peanut are going to be commanding a pretty big salary on top of SKT paying for Faker. He'd had to take a lower salary for it to make sense.

Teddy used to play with Wraith also known as Casper in Spring. It's a long shot that SKT would revise their position on Casper and bring him back. He was considered a clear upgrade to 2013 Winter (perfect season) Poohmandu, and there was a lot of speculation that he was uncoachable. As far as I know he was let go because of the AHQ Korea scandal. Maybe SKT has mellowed out on the perceived PR backlash considering the person that broke the story, AHQ Promise, is currently in jail for raping a woman, did so before his suicide attempt, and preferred jail time to apologizing. After all, Wraith was never in on it, it was the jungler (now a fucking coach for Hanwha Life E-sports) and the coach (killed himself) that organised the match fixing.

I wouldn't be surprised if MaRin comes back. He looks happy when he streams. Too happy for someone that got released from a shit tier Chinese team. People have been jokingly saying that only MaRin can save SKT again. Actually having looked at his op.gg I think it's almost certain that he's returning to AFs, which mean Kiin will probably go to the new Kingzone team / KT / maybe SKT / china / whoever has fat stacks. I saw MaRin duoing with Mowgli a lot, and he's now also duoing with Spirit and CoreJJ. There's a rumor that SKT wants Spirit, and CoreJJ is a top tier support... All three of them could go to SKT, but the duo queue with Mowgli makes me think the former two are being retained along with MaRin and CoreJJ (only Ruler and CuVee were retained by GenG) would be signed by Afreeca.

This roster is 2017 attempt 2. This doesn't solve the problem of Peanut not wanting to share time with Agent 612. At the end, only Huni and Faker were the only people not playing like shit, so maybe the coaching staff changed their opinion on Huni. It's also become more acceptable to give more jungle attention to top, and back when Huni was getting it it was almost a cardinal sin. Removing Bang is ++++to my ability to support SKT but I don't think he was toxic in-game, maybe out of game. Bang took pressure better than most and was fine stalling to late to prove he was better than his opponent. I don't know enough of the specifics to know if this is a clear upgrade over the 2017 roster.
