Zeb thinks NiP were best on previous patch, Reinforce thinks Rogue clearly were best. THE FANS HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING. And the next four(?) LANs are invite-only, region locked, buncha nonsense.
Good interview, keep it up. :)
Very good interview. I like that you are going quite in-depth instead of just having a superficial conversation, much appreciated. I also like that you can see quite a bit of how Zebbosai "ticks". From a technical side of things these are really good with relatively little effort. The microphone could use an upgrade (pop-filter please) and the camera angle could be better - but ultimately the content is more important for me. :)
Looking at all tournaments going on in the recent months I do believe that Rogue could surely claim that they were the guys to beat - at the end of the day, it only matters if you manage to win tournaments, and from a purely statistical point of view, that's what they did.
What was the last time NiP and Rogue met? The ESL Atlantic Showdown EU Qualifier?
You can't claim to be better than someone if you got invited to tournaments that they didn't, unless you beat them in scrims, or your transitive results versus the same opponents were clearly better. The public don't have access to scrim results (also I don't think NiP scrimmed Rogue since before the Overwatch Open) and the only opponent they had in common was Misfits.
I think as fans we should be demanding better matchups.
