Yet the big question is still unanswered. Can they beat NAR? Second place is pretty much a death trap, the European and Chinese qualifiers are at a much higher level and trying to qualify for TI3 through the wild card slot is going to be much more difficult compared to getting first at the NA qualifiers.
If anything a wild card slot is a cruel fate for any team. The only thing worse than not going to TI is to know that you were only a few games away from having a chance to compete on the main stage against the people you will watch in person.
Setting up for a very interesting run to the finish. I think any of the 3 can win the qualifier, but want to see Liquid at least with a chance to make TI.
First off we didn't know the whole tie breaker scenario when we started the game. Regardless before going into the game we were happy we got guaranteed top 2 after the match vs Shadows of the past where we made a pretty big come back.
We knew that we didnt want to reveal anything more for our bo3 tomorrow vs NAR which would determine a lot, basically who goes to ti. we wanted to try some stuff out like Queen of pain cause TC asked to play it. Then Jimmy wanted to really play kunkha or mag in the game (he's been begging to play kunkha or mag since last week, we let him play mag actually in our match vs EhuG on Sunday) so we picked kunkha for him. I was like fine, ill play support or qojqva will. Qojqva didnt want to so i said i'd play Shadow demon.
We just played the game out and had fun. THe start with the DD tree was hilarious and we were all just laughing, etc. We did do some clowny moves and cocky plays. People on the team knew that there wasnt much on the line FOR US and we literally thought we won no matter what after the start but unfortunately there were some questionable plays and the sand king and mirana kept picking us off. we were still trying to win, aka trying to land our dark seer kunkha combos but we just played it out relaxed cause we knew nothing was on the line for us specifically. Having played 9 games of stressful ass games the 2 days before.
We didnt wanna pick shit that we'd maybe run tmrw or thursday. why would we just put material out there for the other teams to look at, etc. every single draft matters.
