    In CS:GO, Astralis used to pretty much performing 'bad' but they always end up succeding by being good at playing around the things that other teams/people hate.

    Damn, what an honorable thing of Rekkles to still think of whether it was healthy for FNATIC or not that he left and that he is happy that it seems to turn out well also for them. This is sportsmanship at its best.

    I dislike podcasts, usually I think they're too long, messy, and empty. There are some of them, however, absolutely worth every second. This one is a perfect example. Caedrel and Drakos managed to keep it interesting, respectful and insightful. And Rekkles is super classy. His eloquence and naturality are really a good followup. LEC production value is really nice.

    @Devin Murphy I dislike the format itself in most cases. Hard to keep me interested to watch a full program. That is what I meant - I enjoy Caedrel and Drakos and still cant manage to watch most EUphoria. (and holy fuck people start assuming things when you express an opinion, dont you, people?)

    Interesting that what Rekkles says at 40:57 is the exact opposite of what Perkz descriped Grabbz as. Shows that we shouldnt take everything the pros say as a fact bc player perception is a thing.

    MAD has the same amount of wins as the other top teams. They will ramp up in playoffs and they will win again. Humanoid is the best player in europe and he will show it once again.

    Wait... does EU STILL use "gamer houses"? I've watched Rekkles and Jankos stream and they both definitely have apartments. But the way he was speaking at the beginning of the podcast made it sound like they were all living together. I'm confused. I hope EU isn't still using "gamer houses".

    @jakey brech But Jankos also has an apartment. Maybe that's just in the off season when he goes home though. I don't know the logistics I just know for a fact that he has spoken many times on stream about his rental agreement and neighbors. It's so weird to me that Grabbz also lives there. I couldn't IMAGINE living with my boss. But I'm 35, I couldn't imagine living with anyone that I wasn't in a relationship with, lol.

    The disrespect towards MAD is unreal. They are tied for second with one win from first. They won Spring. The took Damwon to a full Bo5. Just came off a 2-0 weekend. On top of it all, they spend a whole segment talking about how "the feel is most important" and how Astralis players feels good, but when MAD feels good its "they are goofy and not serious" (while also being ahead of G2).

    @Connor Calder and so is Fnatic, G2, and to a certain extent, Rogue. G2 has a stacked team that feel disjointed AND went 0-4. Fnatic has incredible individual skills but force too many fights and their macro is abhorrent. Rogue struggles with pressure and closing out games. Pointing out that MAD makes mistakes isnt the issue. The issue is how much of a blind eye is turned to the mistakes of the remaining top teams.

    Because Mad do make a lot of mistakes… this was their biggest gripe when coming into spring playoffs as well - they randomly dive in and die… that’s not disrespectful it’s just a fact. They also said what made Mad so good was their Clutch factor but the reality is when looking at them as a team you have to acknowledge the amount of mistakes they make and how coinflip they are…

    Am i the only one seeing that mad lions macro is absolutly insane? they lack chemistry wise or they are not that keen on other stuff but the way they win is outmacroing most of their games ... ofc they make mistakes n fight dumb but which team also takes as much crossmap when something happens? they have some kind of worlds aura since msi where their objective priority and macro is so top notch ... also ... best teamfighting team in lec but that title is there since spring split playoffs ... Mad dont need to be as good as the other 3 teams when they have better macro and better teamfighting ... either im fanboyin hard or you sleepin on them :-) curious to see ... cant wait for playoffs....

    57:32 I personally dont agree and think MAD looks better than FNC, esp their macro, FNC just too flippy and have a rush to go in all the time. And even if FNC gets 2nd place in summer, they get total of 20+100=120 points, wheres if MAD makes 4th place they get 90 + 50 = 140 points, so FNC needs to win it all or stay home for worlds

    Points determine seeding in playoffs - not worlds spots anymore. Fnatic need to finish top 3 - that’s it. Mad are just as Flippy as Fnatic, they randomly dive in and die. Overextend consistently… Mad and Fnatic are extremely similar.

  • SmileWithMe

    Championship points don’t mean anything for worlds. The points determine seeding in playoffs. Top 3 teams from playoffs go to worlds, regardless of the points. So basically as long as FNC end top 3 for summer, they will go to worlds, independent of where they got seeded for playoffs/how many points they had
