Ughh 2½ weeks until this game starts.. Can't wait!
If kongdoo Panthera loose this Time, they will be eleminated and Rogue and lunatic hai are almost sure to be qualified
Nico is the key player for Rogue this time.
If he can’t adjust himself on LAN game again, this would be toxic to overall Rogue’s performance.
Well, OGN's considering the left-handed issue so far, so there’s no excuse after all.
Good luck for both teams.
This game will surely be dazzling my eyes.
my heart wants 3-2 Rogue win (I don’t wanna see western teams getting eliminated in each group easily)
but 3-2 KDP win...
kdp looked prety good vs l-hai and on another day it could have been a 3:0 for them while rogue looked pretty shaky especially nico i think crazy as it sounds easy win for KDP unless nico gets his shit really together then this will be really close game
I WANT Rogue to win, but honestly looking at how the Might AOD match went, it was closer than expected, I think KDP will win this 3-1, possibly 3-2.
I'm hoping and praying they prove me wrong and show the east how good one of our EU/NA hybrid team is.
But wasn't it agreed that AOD were actually decent?
AOD aren't bad, they're just much weaker than KDP. losing a map to them isn't a good sign for Rogue
Pretty much sums it up. I predict them probably getting 3-0'd by both KDP and LH, even though they're not horrible. I was just worried about the Control Map results since I didn't expect Rogue to win the Assault one. Let's hope we can mostly chalk it up to LAN jitters or what not.
its a full eu team
lol I know, I was joking with the fact that they're NA because of location. I'm French Canadian and the whole EU vs NA thing amuses me so I just call them hybrids.
The only thing NA about Rogue is the burger grease clogging up their arteries
I really want Rogue to lose a game for once...
Even though they'll probably win.
That's an odd comment but you might just get your wish granted in their next match. Do note that they haven't lost in a while because the NA region hasn't been able to adapt to the combination of their play style + individual skills.
I don't think the same can be said at APEX, but again, your comment is odd, since they just haven't had that much competition save for a couple of teams.
This one will be Epic !
But i'm still rooting for my french mates !
This game is a litmus test for rogue that will determine if they belong in the contender/top team conversation, or if they are second tier to top korean teams.
Not gonna lie, if groups were more balanced, looking at you group C, they probably would have made it out of groups somewhat easily. Having to beat KDP and LH is a really big ask.
NIco's online Genji is miles ahead of his LAN Genji
The first 2 maps were ridiculously close, set could have gone either way easily. Rogue's got a shot against LH, but assuming they lose this is one of the worst cases of "screwed by the group draw" I've ever seen.
36-0 before L'Internethulque. 1-1 after Hulque :thinking:
I have to rewatch this game, but my first impression was that Rogue always gave away the first pick in the crucially important fights. Every single one of their players has guilty of this at different points in the game. I know French esports is associated with passion and just fucking skilling it, but the composure of KDP was really Rogue's undoing. The Koreans seemed well prepared for all of Rogue's maneuvers.
Could've been a 3-0 in favor of Rogue if stuff went slightly different. Much better than last week from Rogue. I have faith in them against LH!
Edit: If Rogue wins, how does it work then? Presuming that KDP, LH and Rogue will have equal scores.
Agreed, it's very unfortunate. There's no doubt they should have won Oasis, sporting a 99-0 lead on the 2nd stage.
Let's not forget the 3k D.Va bomb on Numbani, the win should have been theirs on that map as well.
As for Route 66 (edited) they had the possibility of having a much bigger time bank but they kept bleeding time instead of just regrouping when they started losing people and again in extra rounds when a few of them died (Nico throwing away a Dragon Blade) when they possibly could have recovered for one last stand in overtime.
This series was more winnable than I thought it would be but I don't see them beating LH, mostly because LH seems like a stronger team than KDP mentally, even if they fall behind as we've seen time and time again.
I'll say it again, group balance was even worst than last season (group C anyone?) but I wish them good luck, and pray that Mighty AOD pull a fast one on KDP (3-1 or better) as well as them either beating LH, or at least getting 2 maps off of them.
I consider this a long shot, not impossible, but IMO improbable.
As for Dorado they had the possibility of having a much bigger time bank but they kept bleeding time instead of just regrouping when they started losing people and again in extra rounds when a few of them died (Nico throwing away a Dragon Blade) when they possibly could have recovered for one last stand in overtime.
I think you mean Route 66, and that call for an agressive dive onto the healers after Soon got a pulse bomb on KDP's widow on the last minute of Route 66 was probably Knoxx's. It was just a very unfortunate dive since just as Knoxx and Nico jumped in and committed, Soon got sniped by Luffy's Zen, so I don't think Nico was completely at fault there.
