Each game was paused at least 2 to 3 times its actually sad how much lag these players were experiencing you could feel the frustration and the tilt each time the game was paused. Idk whats wrong with the competitive server but comon semc get your shit together…
Second, why was this played on patch 3.9 ? They were definitely playing on the competitive server which allows them to play on old patchs and yet they chose to play the most competitive tournament on a patch that’s 5 days old seriously ?
Third, the meta this patch is godman awful this tournament made me realize how bad it actually is. Top lane is even more terrible to play than ever, being shoved in 2v1 with a sieging jungler like skaarf or melene (now i understand why cp kestrel got nerfed) with minion candied waves, tier 1 towers falling 3 minutes in, it really made me feel the players that had to play top lane. I dont care how bad the gold funneling meta was in 3.4 to 3.8, its still way better than this battle royal meta in the sidelanes.
Now for the actual games, all of the series were hard fought and thrilling i enjoyed watching them so much ! Congrats to Ace very deserved champions, the way they play is so composed and clinical they were definitely the best team this tournament ggs to them. Qlash you made europe proud, i knew you would beat the Na teams and you did both of them ! Now i finally have proof to back up my statement, Eu > Na Shame that L3oN couldn’t make the trip i feel like qlash would have beaten ace if he was playing, maybe some day he will get his passport issues sorted and make Eu world champion
Agreed but its still not was cause the downfall of vg, the esports scene isn’t reponsible for all the issues that have frustrated the playerbase for the past 9 months, the matchmaking issues, the queue times, the bugs and poor latency… maybe in a way its responsible for the milking of the game i guess
It seems NA isnt better than EU after all the trash talking they’ve been doing against EU.
I hope people can now stop with that stupidity of X>Y trash talking Y. At the end they are still players and doesnt deserve to be treat like that.
The analyst desk this tourney was so silly it was cringy at times, Flash so confident Nova would beat Qlash 2-0 even going as far as saying both games will be sub 15 minutes he really made a fool out of himself. Qlash beat both Na teams with the odds against them, they had way less preparation, they didn’t have a coach or an analyst and they were the best player in Eu (L3oN), Na has been tough a lesson.
Agreed to the point about the esport and FlashX comments. Funny thing is, the finals Qlash vs Ace, the other casters were dissing him asking about qlash and stuff and he justs laughs it off.
For me, the esports was really messy this year. It looks great and all but not as hyping or extravagant as the last 2 worlds. Maybe SEMC should’ve sticked with Razer and not spread themselves too thin with the esports partnership that totally went shit early this year.
I would love to see a more organized one next year though. Even if this year was terrible when it comes to proper esports, they were still able to deliver it somehow. Better than nothing.
I wondered that too. Last year at worlds was played on an old patch despite there being almost two weeks to learn it beforehand (i know, not long, but a lot more than 5 days)
I don’t think it’s that bad, in fact, I quite like it. Don’t like the top 2v1? What’s stopping you from going off meta and bringing a support/jungler up. I’ve never really understood that tbh. My point is the game is relatively balanced, not worth complaining about.
Tbh i was never hyped about this worlds and didnt even know it was a thing until the finals. “Worlds” with only 4 teams and no one from SEA, SA, CN. Was watching WESG qualifiers with impunity. Imp scrims with Ace a lot so i guess ill support ace in worlds and they won. Anyways, not much of a follower in the esports scene. Only watched the worlds finals. Any previous matches worth watching the replay for?
I am almost certain the reason is that they really didn’t like the old meta too (especially for viewers). The new one is really more fun to watch and atleast for now more fun to play. There are defo some things to polish and tweak, but overall it’s heading to the right direction imho.
