in competitive league of legends
NA is seen by every other major region as a joke region and they think NA should be a wildcard, which we should.
In the old days esports wasn't really taken seriously in North America, but now they're throwing all this money into esports. Shitty orgs like CLG and Echo Fox have these giant "training facilities" with millions of dollars in equipment, staff, structure, etc. but we still can't do shit internationally. CLG got to finals in MSI 2016? and basically got rolled by SKT T1. I watched those games and those drafts were like they had just given up. "We got to finals that's good enough let's just let them 3-0 us like they're going to do anyway."
Why is NA so bad?
