Thank You For Believing
May 19 2019
Well. We lost tonight. But you know what? That’s okay.
Because a loss tonight means a North American team has secured second place in an international tournament for only the second time in League of Legends history. That we’ve achieved an organizational best in only our third ever international tournament appearance. This was our org’s first international final, our players’ first international final. And while that series was not what we wanted, we’re proud of what we accomplished and you can bet we’ll only continue to improve from here. After all, we’ve finally proven that there is more than one NA team capable of making it out of groups.
Now we look forward to the Summer Split. And to Worlds. But we would like to take a moment to look back and thank those that stayed up late to watch us, those that supported us, those that cheered for us. We want to thank our fellow NA orgs for their amazing support online and in person, we’d like to thank NA fans that normally root against us for having our backs the entire tournament, and we’d like to thank TL fans the world over. Without you guys the victories would be half as sweet. The losses twice as bitter.
To our players, we couldn’t be more proud of you guys. You have taken us to heights we could only dream of just a few short years ago and we cannot thank you enough for that. You’ve made NA proud once again. So rest up before Summer lads, you’ve earned it. GGWP.
Smash Liquid Legends: The Counterpick Unlike the two spacies (Fox and Falco), Melee’s mainstay floaties were not created equal. Puff is solidly better than Peach in a lot of respects and wins the matchup pretty handily.
CS:GO From 16-1 to 6-16: Love and Heartbreak in CS:GO In Counter Strike, if a team loses a map with less than 6 round wins, it’s a beatdown. It’s such a beatdown that we normally see it in an outclass scenario—a tier 1 team against some upstart. When it happens between two tier 1 teams, it’s often not an outclass and more a perfect storm.
