Ardeont the tactical genius. While so many other tier2 korean teams are disbanding coz they couldnt do anything in Apex, Ardeont is here using their brain and beating weak teams and winning the highest prize pool tournament. The counter argument might be this means they wont get to play in OWL, but i dont think they would have gotten to play in it anyway.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Just because Ardeont won doesn't make the other teams weak. Using that logic you might as well say all Contenders teams are weak except for EnvyUs who are casually steam rolling their way through to an easy trophy just like Ardeont. You can praise Ardeont without undermining the efforts of everyone else.

Let's not kid ourselves the competition in OPC was pretty garbage.
You have Aredont who are clearly 1-1.5 tiers higher than flash wolves, Flash wolves are then clearly a tier higher than ahq/blank/hka, those teams clearly higher than mega/machi and let's not talk about libalent.
You need to compare the teams to the competition. Every team was garbage compared to aredont, every team but aredont was garbage compared to flashwolves.
So when you have a comp with only 8 teams and there are clearly defined skill gaps and tiers it's a pretty horrible tournament. Say if you had a league 15 teams that would be understandable but not here.

Funny to think of it this way, since Libalent Supreme, the team that lost every single game in OPC apart from qualifiers got 13k USD just for participating. To put this into perspective, it's literally on par with what X6 has gotten throughout their entire career, and they're multiple tiers above them. Not purposefully shitting on the team, just find it interesting.

Difference is OPC is a more drawn out tournament with more matches. And the point was that the teams in OPC are weak apart from Aredont and fw, big fish in a small pond.

It litetally isn't, OPC is 7 weeks long the same as most tier 2 leagues. I will be the first to admit there are some weak teams there but the same is true of any tier 2 league. There is always a big fish in each small pond and the exact attitude people like you have toward OPC is unjustified. No one is saying Flash Wolves are the best team in the world, everyone knows Korea and APEX are the best. What point are you and others like you trying to prove going into match threads to shit on the teams playing? Every tournament is going to have weak teams, EnvyUs just proved the same point Ardeont did but who gives a fuck at the end of the day. Every region has a right to be represented so let the teams be.

You have a point tbh, how do you see APAC going? I would have liked ardeont in there instead of AHQ that would really have made it interesting best from Korea Taiwan China NZL and a half decent NA team my guess is MY take the whole thing
