No need to trash talk tsm they one fair and square. But yea his last two ori ults did not do that much at all.


Just the fact that they win, doesn't mean that they are good or even remotely played well. Their team composition was trash, their plays were horrible, and in the end they won because Trist got a few crits. I'm not saying that C9 played well, because they sure as hell didn't, but the ending was some serious ******** right there.

In the end we can just say that TSM didn't win but that C9 lost, that both teams played terrible, and that NA will not stand a chance at World's considering their current performances.

Lol i knew this would happen c9 fans and tsm haters blame it all on crits and tsm getting lucky no way it was not just c9 playing badly they did fine tsm has improved and finally took them down.

Oh and yes no team has chance at worlds final teams will all be korean 100%. EU and NA and any region has 0 chance.

Amazing series, great way to cap the split. I can't wait till worlds.

Also that last Ori ultimate by Bjerg was 100% necessary and setup the win. Killing maokai without him being able to use a spell was great plus preventing a flash initiation into a warded bush that could have been a potential 3-4 man knockup clinched the win.

TSM came back from 2 games down to clear the series and Wildturtle got 2 quadras in 2 games as Tristana. GG.

Basically MOBAFire.

You mean that guy with the glorious Orianna ultimates? Yeah we can all learn from that.



It seems someone needs to be reminded that quite a few Ori ults from Hai were just as effective as those from Bjerg.

Mistakes were made on both teams. Saying one team didn't 'win', the other team 'lost', is just stupid. Any one team doesn't win the split cuz all the other teams 'lost'. When you say that, all I can see is some butthurt 12 y/o that refuses to accept reality.

I just find it immensely funny.
All those lil kids.
Writing off TSM cuz they had a bad start.
And now whining cuz OMG, THAT'S SO UNFAIR!!! THEY ONLY WON CUZ TRIST GOT A FEW LUCKY CRITS.

Honestly RNG is a really big problem and enforcing an IE first meta really brings a lot more luck to the game than it normally would. It can cause the game to snowball off a single crit which I really don't want to see at worlds though.

In the end I think we can conclude both teams are roughly the same level right but TSM got their well deserved first seed. Purely looking at individual skill they are way above the other teams and they have a really good staff as well. In the long term they'll probably be the best team to represent NA because they have more potential to grow.

It hurts me to say this

I'm not so sure about that. Their solo lanes are probably top tier in NA, but Wildturtle in particular looked so much worse than Sneaky in that series, I don't think it's even close. Amazing and Lustboy also surely aren't "way above" the likes of Meteos and LemonNation (or Aphromoo/Xpecial for that matter).

@ SkidmarkD

I'm not sure whether the last part of your post was (also) aimed at me, but I just honestly feel like Wildturtle's play in most games yesterday showed how incredibly outclassed he is by someone like Sneaky, constantly getting caught by Hai's Zed in game 1 and 3 because of poor positioning, for example. The fact that he according to the casters "carried his team to the championship by outplaying Cloud 9" rustles my jimmies when the crits had such a big influence on the outcome of that fight (though his Flash play to dodge Sneaky's last ult and kill him was pretty good, I'll admit). That's not whining, I just don't think he deserved to be the one to get a spotlight like that :P
