For real. Al0t went nuts.
I really didn’t expect a 3-0 from that match up. Especially from G2
I think they need some warm up time, they seemed a little nervous and Rizzo never got into his groove.
I kinda figured Rizzo was off his game. He was struggling to get his earbuds untangled when they sat down. Feelsbadman
It's gotta be brutal to go up against a team that's already had a game that day. Yeah you can fart around or whatever they do in back but it's not the same.
I feel like it was basically Complexity already stage warmed up going up against a G2 that was stage-warming up.
Every team should play their first game against a team that also is on their first game of the day. Just IMO
Alot is nutty
Keep in mind that the teams playing cold got a bye in the first round. Playing cold is a disadvantage, sure, but it's not as bad as having to play an entire extra series. I think any team would rather start the tournament in G2's place than Complexity's.
maybe so. But i'd imagine they'd take an OCE team as a warmup over an EU favorite as a warmup in this instance.
Definitely, but that's a tournament for you. Seeding doesn't always reflect reality, some teams get easier brackets than others, upsets can give advantage in a later round, etc. There's a lot of luck involved in any short tournament.
a #1 seed shouldn't be at a disadvantage for their first game by being forced to come in cold to a team that's already warm and basically just got done playing imo.
Well, the question is whether it's a disadvantage overall. They've got a disadvantage in warm vs cold, but that's balanced by a significant advantage in getting to play OCE / EU seed 4. In my opinion, overall, that's still the easiest path.
The problem isn't the format, it's the seeding. I doubt anyone thinks that EU's league play number 2 and RLCS runner-up deserved a number four seed. If a four isn't a four, then the advantage of being a number one is wiped out. For the fairest bracket possible, we're probably going to need human seeding of some sort. At a minimum, league play results need to be more important than they are. As long as one bad day can invert months of results, there's going to be a lot of luck involved in RLCS seeding.
Off-topic question: Does anyone know the monitors used on stage?
I'm guessing something like Alienware AW2518H but not sure.
al0t went off but rizzo didn't really play that well...
Rizzo flat out disappoints on defense every RLCS. Starting to think he's a choke artist.
I missed the first game, but if we're pushing blame on a single player, it seemed to me more like jknaps was the one who didn't show up. He kept trying to push through passes where he already lost control and the defender was going to beat him to the ball. Rizzo had a few pretty nutty saves.
