: You realize all 3 Korean teams got out right? Also all 3 of them got first in their group...
Korea is a weak region. Haven’t made it to an international final in 2 years. I’ll stick with EU... for now...

: your argument is wrong, hardcore GRF fan. No idea why disagreeing with the fact that RNG contested literally nothing makes me a fan of their org...
Ah! So you just hate western teams as a whole. That fair. To each their own.
: i think g2 didnt have the hardest group. splyce didnt look that impressing but they made it fnc had really the hardest group with skt being the favorite and rng being the final boss of fnc. i really have hopes for a non asian team to win worlds! im a bit sad g2 didnt make first seed but thats about it. i really hope liquid gets 2nd seed tomorrow. so we have 4 western teams standing in every group vs asia.
My bold prediction is that EU will be the only region to have all teams make it out of groups. TL and IG getting out tomorrow! I have hope!

Why not both? because the one who started the topic is clearly disappointed by the final result since he was hoping FNC to be eliminated just because so also EU would have lost a team in the group stage
I would argue that he’s more upset RNG lost. Sounds like an RNG fan. Majority of us NA fans root for EU over all Eastern teams. Just so you know.
: hurts to see all EU teams get out of groups while your last hope is TL huh xd
Why do you have to make it about NA or EU? Why not both?

: SKT vs FNC "Upset"
EU is just better than Korea man. It’s no secret.
: I personally mute everyone at the start of games so in game I have no opinion on the matter. Outside of the game I also can be toxic to a minimum but overall, I agree.
BAK! I’ve been interacting with you for a hot minute on the boards! I’d love to play with you sometime. I’m actually the same way. I’m NEVER toxic in game, but I can get pissed something fierce over some LCS. I still don’t know why that is XD
: I'm hoping with Immortals returning they can build a team with a roster and coach who will challenge the top NA teams. That's long odds unless they majorly overhaul the Optic franchise they bought out. Maybe with EG, Imt and Dig coming in it will shake things up and make the pros play harder.
I was completely unaware there was gonna be that much turnover next season O.o
Rioter Comments
: You know........I'm actually somewhat not surprised.
You know, in previous years, I'd probably be flaming right now as a die hard C9 fan... but I'm actually okay with this result. I've drifted from that team as a whole as Reapered has continued to alienate players and fans of the org. I just can't convince myself to get angry... especially when I love G2 and I know they are the best in the world right now. I'm happy with that result, as I will be happy with any result that sees a Western team hoist the trophy. It's not over yet. Now, if we get to the finals and no Western team is left in the tourney, then yeah, this tournament blows.
: Idk why do you even point solo q, if ur ranting about EU being better than NA in competitive. Solo q has nothing to do with competitive. Typical example is TF Blade , who reach rank 1 in 2 weeks with outstanding winrate. Other examples are Hyli , forg1venGRE and Jankos, they started their careers in EUNE. Ur region just cant be better in every game , pc game just get over it. If im not wrong NA is better than EU in CS GO, should I rant about my region being bad at CS GO?
I disagree. I do think Soloque has a large impact on competitive play. The entire ladder for ranked is based on soloque games. If the overall talent of NA soloque players is worse, then the overall practice against quality players is worse to climb the ladder. You're only as good as your region allows you to be. It goes back to the "NA Challenger is Korean Silver" sentiment that gets passed around. The best of the best in NA will never been good as the best of the best in other regions because the ladder doesn't have as many passionate and competitive players.... so yes, soloque has a large impact on competitive play, IMO.

: G2 losing 2 games to Griffin is the end of my interest to Worlds 2019
Yeah. LPL or LCK winning an international championship is the football equivalent of watching a game that ends in a 0-0 tie. Waste of time and completely unexciting.
: 10 Years of NA LCS
It aint over yet. TL and CG are confirmed to make it out of groups! Keep the faith!
: Worlds is Better... Without the Chat-box
Yeah. The chat on all LiveStreams is horrendous in many ways XD Not an intelligent thought in the bunch.
: Very unfortunate it’s taking so long honestly. I hate the culture of stop wasting your life playing video games and get a real job. Or gaming as a whole is just something kids do. It’s actually disgusting and condescending how distasteful our culture as a whole looks at games. God forbid there is a bare ass cheek or boobs in a game. Save the kids!! I should’ve been born in a different country.
Run for president m8! You got my vote!
: Mainly a combination of our culture, which tends to de-emphasize things like playing video games (although that is starting to change), as well as NA as a whole tending to be more interested in console games and shooters, rather then a PC MOBA.
I agree our culture has something to do with it. I think it is more or less a priority of important things amongst most of the LOL community in NA. The reason Korean and LPL soloque is so much more competitive is because, in a lot of cases, that is all a lot of those kids/teens/adults do in those countries. They go to school/work and they come home and have a single passion of playing video games, primarily a single video game like League. I'm not saying NA pros don't have that mentality, but most of the players they can practice with do not. There is so much to do here in the US than play video games and 95% (guesstimate) are just causal players who play a few games a week... these are people who wont get you the best practice. The NA ladder is just a simple ladder to climb and it doesn't take nearly as much effort to get to the top as it does in those other places because NA (primarily the US) has so much more stuff going on to draw attention away from serious gaming. I believe that is why shorter style games are so much more popular and competitive for NA eSports. There is a reason why NA is the most dominant region in Fortnite and so weak in LOL. It's because it doesn't take as much time to master a game like Fornite with an average game time of 15 minutes compared to a game like League with an average game time of 30 and that's easier for the busy lives of United States players to get into. I'm not trying to come off as saying "NA Players are worse than Western players because they have more stuff to do," but I do think that sentiment is a factor.
: I am ashamed of our region (huge rant)

Be like us. We never get angry! Follow the rules, kid. > > Yeah, those saints are really helping over there in that forum. I want to add the fact that more often than not, people who're commenting on those kind of threads sound more toxic than the guy who got banned. It's not rare to see people being straight up passive-aggressive towards the guy who got banned. And mods are doing shit about it because it's not an obvious harrassment. It's like some people are using PB posts to vent their frustrations on banned players. Dont get me wrong, I'm a toxic PoS aswell, I aint a saint, but the things I read on PB sometimes feel like borderline cyber-bullying. And thats something even i wouldnt do. It doesnt bother me that much, but as you said, they should get off their high horse and stop judging banned players whey they're behaving the same.
Getting on those threads and continually telling the OP "You deserved it! You broke the rules! You did this and this and this wrong!" is 100% more toxic than telling someone "You're bad! Go AFK!"
: It's the WAY that the banned person approaches it. 5% of the people who come in to discuss their ban sound like this - "Hi guys, I recently got a chat restriction but I don't think my comms were that bad. I admit I was frustrated, but I didn't think I broke any rules. Could you please let me know what you think?" Instead, 95% of the time we get this - "I know **all** the Riot whiteknights will downvote this, but I was in a game being inted and trolled by my top laner and I called him out and this is my 5th permabanned account and I don't deserve this. By the way, fuck you all." And then they proceed to argue with and flame everyone who replies. Player Behavior is a tough board for those of us who spend time there. Hardly anyone is open to accepting the fact that they are the ones in charge of their own chat and if they received a punishment, it's not because of what everyone else did.
They get on there and say some stupid stuff for sure. They are upset. The game they've dropped more money into than food was just taken away from them. Of course they are going to be upset. Again, it's about perspective: If someone is bullying you, calling you names, beating up on you, beating up on your family and loved ones, telling you to kill yourself... all in real life, then a perfectly natural response is to defend yourself and your family in any way necessary. But RIOT and all of those White Knights in the forums see it differently because those people aren't in the banned person's shoes. Imagine banning someone for defending their mentally ill family member that some loser decided to make fun of in a video game? As someone who has a mentally ill family member, that's out of line. We can mute chat, mute pings, lose the game because we can no longer communicate, go afk because we're tired of being harassed and all of that stuff, but these mods and "better than you" board members don't care. "There is never an excuse to be toxic to another player. We understand that natural human instinct is to defend yourself in a time of bullying and in real life, that would be perfectly acceptable, but online - that's crossing the line and makes you just as bad as the person who was telling you that your whole family should die. Tsk Tsk bad person. You deserve it." "You should have just ignored it. They're just words. They don't mean anything. Who cares what someone online says?" We have no clue what some of these people are going through, but lets all storm the player behavior section to tell them what a terrible person they are and how bad they messed up and broke all those rules. That'll help. EDIT: The whole purpose of those boards is to give a player insight into why they were banned and offer an avenue for appeal and discussion with people who can do something about it. Instead, they get a bunch of the same old people who can't change anything tell them how bad they were.
: People can downvote whenever they want and for whatever reason. Just like with upvotes. They don't change anything anyway. Commenting "don't break the rules" does not mean that commenter thinks of himself as a saint that never does anything bad. Everyone gets angry and makes stupid shit from time to time. The "don't break rules" comment is usually just that, someone asking someone else to stop breaking rules. And if its not, there is no reason to care anyway.
Sure, but If you check those threads out, they’re always the same, and with the same people. Recently banned guy comes in and gripes about being banned for something he doesn’t think is banworthy. Saint: “LoL! You say all this, but no chat logs. Okay, guy.” Recently banned guy post chat logs. Couldn’t find them at first. Explains that the logs don’t show the harassment he was taking on his end. Saint: “You clearly flamed. You called him bad and told him to afk!” Recently banned guy tries to explain that something that small isn’t Banworthy and the other guys were saying worse things. Oh wait... here comes a “Specialist,” This Guy will crack the case! Specialist: “Hey there! After looking over your chat logs and looking up big words in a thesaurus to make this explanation sound much smarter and more meaningful than what it really is, I have come to the transgressive conclusion that the formulaic procedure of your analytic responses to the supposed harassment you were in reception of during the course of the competition, what you typed can be perceived by the layman as offensive and obligatory. I damn you to hell.” Everybody upvotes Specialist (or mods) response. Refusing to give any merit to the OP. I’m not saying those guys don’t deserve a ban (though a lot of times, they don’t) but man those people in those threads are the worst.

You talk about perspective. One of my favorite things to do is go to player behavior and check out the people who have been suspended/banned. There are a lot of “better than you” people who make a habit of commenting on those threads. “Just because someone flames you doesn’t give you the right to flame back!” Yeah, we get it, saint.

You’re not wrong. I’ve found that I’ll get downvoted from the same old people because they didn’t like something I said on a completely unrelated post. About Mod posting, it’s simple. If a mod agrees with you, then you get upvotes, if they disagree with you, then in comes the hate votes. I think the primary disconnect is the most vocal people on the boards want to be mods/specialist themselves, so they pander to what the mods want them to say to try and earn favor. It’s sloppy for sure.

I don’t have a problem with C9 losing to G2. It was likely as G2 is on another level compared to any other team in this tournament. I’m even okay with the way they went down. Fighting and swinging. I do have a problem with C9 not putting the best roster on the rift in the first place.
