I will use this vod to showcase the EU playstyle: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/297216281 @hazeleyes @Saint7502 @HipsterSkaarf @Ve3nNo0wM
Keep in mind that it was a solo q game since i couldn’t find EPL vods so the players obviously lack coordination but it was a high elo game nonetheless and you see would a similar kind of aggression in a competitive game
1:12:35, 1:14:08, 1:14:52, Aggression from the get go in an attempt to control the entire jungle, as i said its a solo q game so the the players are not on the same page but its the intention that matters really you can see how every jungle rotation is very contested from both sides and it carries on throughout the whole game.
1:17:25, Enemy has 1 dead member plus has to rotate to their red jungle because it just spawned and you see the ally team immediately go for a 6 minutes ghostwing. No pings needed, all the players just went for it which shows their map awareness and their ability to capitalize on the spot on the smallest of opportunities.
1:18:58, We’re only 9 minutes into the game and the enemy team is already grouped as 5, there is other instances before that were teams were grouped up as 4 as well. You can once again see the confidence EU players and their ability to capitalize on advantages, despite being a 4v5 ally team still goes for the fight since they have ghostwing and red buff and balanced fortress ult. The fight ends up being even despite the number discrepancy which is actually a win for ally team which they once again capitalized on by going for the enemy red buff.
Now i can’t showcase NA’s playstyle as there is literally no one that still streams besides XenoTek but from watching the EPL NA teams all lack the points that i’ve mentioned above. At level 1 they group up in mid lane for some reason and exchange timid blows without any commitment that don’t lead to anything and both sides end up going for their own jungle. And that’s a trend that carries out through out the game there is no pro-active moves, invades are only made after an unforced error.
