The time is wrong here. EU Finals is 7 PM CEST.
Can see this going all the way this time, but if Tviq puts in a better performance than he did against C9, I can see Misfits just about edging out Gigantti. 4-3 Misfits.
Hoping for 4-3 Gigantti, thinking 4-1/2 for Misfits
I'm thinking 4-2 or 4-3 for Misfits, I think they're a stronger squad when they play well but given the amount of talent on Gigantti an upset wouldn't be the craziest of things.
It's about time my boys take home their first big LAN victory, it's been too long!
Misfits said in the Harsha interview they were most worried about this team. Think it will be a good matchup but Misfits have an OWL roster to prove.
Linkzr popping the fuck off!
Misfits lost first koth yesterday as well though so I'm not getting hyped just yet.
Even if they made an amazing performance on oasis against gamers origins during regular, they really have to improve on that map
good game this far. Have to say BZ is probably the best ow caster imo, hes really good.
I think Misfits has the Edge on Payload/Hybrid, mainly because it's less skirmishy and they seem to have more solid strats than Gigantti.
I still stand by my 4-2 Misfits "prediction" but man, this could be nuts!
Edit: Sombra too stronk!
Do you think Misfits know they're playing for $100,000? 6 minutes on a Widow that worked for one push, only to swap with 1 minute remaining.
Plus the Widow never really worked. I don't know the reasoning behind that decision. And Logix should've went back to Tracer right after that failed beyblade.
On Route 66, that moment when Shaz finds Zebbo hiding shows that Gigantti are on top of their shit. And Linkzr, up to now, completely outclassing Tviq.
Two more EU investors would have seen so many more players be in. Do we have word on what's happening with the Gigantti guys? Obviously they're a very high level team bursting at the seems with talent.
Playing Eichenwalde twice???
The best way to keep a BO7 entertaining is to only play 3 maps ResidentSleeper
I don't like that. The game has enough maps that there's no reason to have any repeats.
Ok why are they playing Eichenwalde again ? Did I fucking miss something ? :thinking:
Being able to pick the same map twice... wat. Could be argued one way, if teams keep going to their supposed strongest maps over a series, once they enter back in the pool... could be a sign of weakness, that they are papering over the cracks and could be even worse if it bites them back in the ass?
The Manneten whiffed grav lost them that 3rd point. They would have had over 3 minutes in the bank too. Unfortunate.
The crowd seems to be cheering for Gigantti. I wonder if that's because of the whole Team Sweden thing or if it's just because they're the underdog.
logix so lackluster on lan ...
BlessRNG Jiri "FINLANDS GIFT TO ESPORTS" MASALIN BlessRNG
edit: damn misfits actually held that
its pretty dump to see eichenwalde twice on the same match..
and now anubis.. ffs?
this must be a joke right???
how do recently played maps not get removed from the mappool ???

Yeah, I can back up most decisions made relating to format and broadcast but I can’t give a good reason for double map pick.
left guy's deleted tweet LuL
wow, surprised Misfits picked Eichenwalde i thought they would pick Eichenwalde
Misfits weakness if definitely in their tanks. Fragi made cWoosh look tier 3 at times and Zappis was just on a whole other level with his Zarya. Linkzr though put in the best single performance I've ever seen by a DPS since I've started watching OW. He made Tviq look average throughout the entire series. The sad part is that most, if not all of these players won't even be in OWL.
I don't know why you're getting downfragged for this. Matter of fact, Linkzr put Tviq on his ass throughout this series. Period.
Been following this guy since the beta days, and I'm so happy that he gets to shine again after Dignitas started struggling a long long time ago.
Shaz also played out of his mind, so much value out of right clicks and ults, beautiful teamwork with Bigg00se.
Well fucking deserved win.
Zappis has to get a lot of credit for sticking it out and just rebuilding the team on top of playing what they need to win. Amazing guy, amazing team!
Edit: Also, not gonna lie, but I think having Reinforce might have actually been an advantage here for any maps where they wanted ti play the Rein. His Winston wasn't the best but it was also getting much better. On top of him being a beacon of morale for the team. It's easy to look back at this now since, hindsight, but it still makes you think.
Beautiful moment from the boys, I'm so glad they finally did it and broke the big LAN curse!
I've always thought Tviq was a bit overrated. Jack of all trades and master of none.
He's far from overrated, he just had a bad series. One bad game doesn't shape a player. Logix was worse than him today, but he's still probably the best Tracer in the west.
This is an unpopular opinion, and I share it.
It's an unpopular opinion and I don't share it. In my opinion he plays all those heroes at an extremely high level, behind only the individual best "one tricks".
Is he a great player ? Yes. One of the best ? Yes. The best ? No.
There's no best DPS player in a game like this, can't compare. Plain and simple. I hear a bunch of analysts/casters say that, but I've been disagreeing with it since it started getting thrown around.
And I think some people are misinterpreting what Generation1 said. Tviq is overrated as 'The best player in the world', not him being a top tier player.
Wow.....seems like or Misfits at lan are bad or the others team are better or both
Sucks to think that there is little to no chance of this giganti squad being together in OWL
Also, the unsung hero of this game, Big D. Didn't appear as much in the killfeed, but these stats can't lie https://twitter.com/Davin_OW/status/917124159662055424 Absolutely massive.
Damn, even better stats than effect with envyus's stomp vs faze, he definitely had the game of his life there!
When I saw the tweet where he says that was his best game ever, I was like hold on for real ? Then I clicked on this link.
He died 30 times in 7 maps. 80-30 is just nuts.
Thank god for these honestly, cause I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see them.
