Did TI7 live up to your expectations? :

LFY was overall better than NewBee, too bad they underperformed so much in the WB final, we could have had a much closer ending to an otherwise incredible tournament.
Nitpicks : the all-star match was simply bad / still a huge dichotomy between the high production value and the unbelievable cringe caused by the audience and some of the pros.

Panel was really boring which made the in between time suck. Another year with a bad caster combo for LD.
Many good talents only for the groupstages.
Games: great | Everything else: meh
Tbh I liked the panel most of the time. The heavy focus on pro players meant that we often had fairly deep analysis of the games and the switches gave a lot of the pros screen time which imo helped to get an impression of them.
Ofc that led to the panel having less time to get used to each other and as a result it was less clowny. It also left Purge a bit stranded here and there. But overall I felt that the short-movie contest and some of the Slacks and Kaci content brought enough entertainment and I liked the deeper analysis without the usual caster panels where half the stuff said is objectively wrong (which often leaves Purge stranded as well, just from the other side).
I agree that LD+Lumi is a terrible combo. Both aren't very active in the scene and honestly the combo hasn't been good for years, idk why Valve keeps getting Lumi when he isn't casting anything outside of TI.
@all-star: Idk why valve tries to make this serious. It's never going to reach the level of two teams facing each other that play a lot together.
I liked the all-star most when they made them play ARDM and it was inherently clowny.
Comparing to TI3, production was amazing. The desk was a bit better at TI3, but it's negligible.
Comparing to TI4, games and production was amazing. The desk was, like TI3, a bit worse.
Comparing to TI5, it was a similar level of enjoyment value out of the stream experience.
Comparing to TI6, I think that TI7 lacked something. Without Machine we would have lacked a lot more.
