I CANNOT FEEL ANYTHING.
Okay, so Natus Vincere and Invictus Gaming are out of TI4. My top 6 predictions were Invictus Gaming, Evil Geniuses, Team DK, Natus Vincere, Fnatic, and Titan. I’m a Na’Vi fanboy and I really do want them to get the Aegis but honestly, with all the sudden burst of improvements displayed by most teams, I knew that in this year’s The International, Na’Vi won’t be making it to the finals; especially without the fountain hook.
Titan proved themselves without Mushi but Mushi really is the missing key to them. Yamateh is good but I don’t think he can fill the hole left by Mushi and it just sucks because the team really has the potential to win the Aegis. So yeah, my top 6 list is garbage.
Also, Fnatic didn’t bring Xcalibur with them and frankly, that kid’s too pro; making Fnatic better than with Era (Sorry, Era).
Invictus Gaming and Natus Vincere somehow faced the same result with teams being better in a lot of terms and both didn’t play as fun and entertaining as before. I’m pretty sure that in the next The International, they’ll come back better and hit harder than ever. Because these two teams do not know defeat. These two teams know that they are on par with the best. But now that they have fallen short of even entering the quarterfinals, their loss will be a painful lesson that even players on their caliber can still fall.
Uhhh… I don’t hate Evil Geniuses. It’s just that I’m brought to support Evil Geniuses because this team’s first roster was composed of the last MeetYourMakers roster and somehow, the old doto hype left by the legendary team lived on; regardless of its roster changes with Fear lurking in the dark; at the helm. Props to these talented kids.
Lastly, Team DK. I HATE TEAM DK MAINLY BECAUSE BURNING REMINDS ME OF SOMEONE I HATE SO MUCH. But with NewBee clinching a step closer to the Aegis, I’d rather have Team DK win The International. In defense of Team DK, BurNing, Mushi, and LaNm are looking forward to quitting competitive gaming. I respect Mushi a lot and he really is one of those I look up to and it has always been his dream to make it to the top. I am 100% sure that Mushi will retire if DK gets the Aegis. This goal applies also to BurNing. LaNm, on the other hand, with or without the Aegis, will still retire. I’ve decided that I can’t let some undeserving team win the Aegis so putting my hate on BurNing aside, I really wish Team DK to win.
But NewBee and Vici Gaming is still on EG and DK’s path. I don’t hate Vici Gaming but my guts tell me they won’t win this thing despite leading the group stages.
DK and EG, bahala na kayo tangina. Iganti niyo na lang ako.
