    >General consensus

    Where, reddit?

    MaRin doesn't even care about the game anymore he's in China because he wants to make fatty cheques before he goes to the army and then has to get an actual job he's already 27 in Korea and he has to do about 2 years of conscription before he's 30.

    If he really wanted to continue playing at the highest level and get even better than he was before he would've stayed on SKT/in Korea. You don't leave the best region in the world to go to what is honestly a garbage region if you want to continue playing against the best opposition possible.

    Also, mechanics alone a great player does not make so you can't really use that as an argument as to why 2015 Smeb was better than 2015 MaRin.

    This argument is eerily similar to the Hauntzer vs Huni arguments.
    Huni gets a ton of resources pumped into him and has better mechanics than Hauntzer, but Hauntzer's still rated by most as the better overall player, even the casters have said he's better overall than Huni is.

    Then how is Flame even considered to be the greatest top laner all time when he rode bench for most of last year and half this split?

    Again, why is Flame your first pick for the greatest top laner in history?



    Jiyeon, Huni is overall the better top laner than Hauntzer. >_> One playoffs run where IMT misread the meta hard doesn't discount that.

    Misread the meta or Huni just straight up can't play/refuses to play tanks? Which is very embarrassing in either case.

    Top fucking Lucian?
    Are you shitting me?

    Gameover picked Rek'sai because he has no champion pool.

    IMT got fucking exposed in that set.

    Miss me with that "misread the meta" cop out.

    Reignover was in a shit position BECAUSE Huni cannot play tanks. Right now teams should be playing tank support and tank top so they can play a carry jungler. Adrian refused to play tanks for some reason and Huni isn't good on tanks so Reignover cannot play the current meta champions because of it.

    And also TSM seems to be the only NA team that actually likes putting their support on a tank. Yellow was on tanks 4 out of 7 games. In a total of 15 playoff games there have only been 11 tank support(4 yellowstar) picks.

    I hardly think that the team gets the final say in what they play.It was most likely a mutual decision between Dylan and the team on what Huni played that set. Huni CAN play tanks (its not rocket science) but he doesn't play them well, historically speaking. And yes, IMT misread the meta thinking they could still play damage oriented tops and tank junglers in a meta tank toplane and carry junglers prevail.

    They didn't get exposed per se but their complacency killed them.

    Rek'Sai I believe is ROs best champ and its as you said, he was put in a predicament due to Huni not being as effective on tanks as he is carries. He didn't have much to work with that series.

    Huni can't play tanks to a competitive level then since you want me to be explicit.

    Which is still embarrassing for a professional top laner to be unable to play tanks well at that level. They even had the option of picking ekko in the last game and didn't.

    How is an inability to play to the meta being complacent?

    They got exposed, Huni literally picked Lucian top in game 1 because the only thing he can do is play damage tops, Adrian apparently can't play tanks seeing as he picked Karma 3 games in a row despite having shit like Alistar up.

    Pobelter is average and got shit on despite hard countering Bjergsen mid in game 2 and had a lol build.
    Then they tried their trademark mongoloid aggression when they realised they're going to get washed and even that backfired.

    They didn't misread anything, they just tried to force their way through a meta that doesn't favour them with their same old strats and p/b because they can't adapt to it.

    Are you telling me they haven't played solo queue or scrimmed other teams or read patch notes or watched games in the past 2-3 weeks so they don't know what they're supposed to pick or do?

    How do you misread a fucking meta?
    That's the shittiest excuse I've seen since Deilor blamed Fnatic getting bummed at worlds in the semis because they were 'tired'.

    He can play them. He just isn't as effective with them as he is with carries, which is weird.

    Agreed.


    Its not an inability ffs. They got complacent in thinking that they were ABOVE the meta. The shit they got away with during the regular split... They thought they could get away with it as well during playoffs.
    The Lucian pick I attribute to cockiness and trying to catch TSM with a fast push strategy. it worked for the first 25 mins before TSM calmed down and stalled to a point where Mao got his core items. They also very good fights on their OWN terms.
    Above average at a western level. And yeah, its Bjerg in top form. Its more that Bjergsen and Sven are rly good atm than Pobelter being "average". Any other mid laner not named Jensen would have been shat on harder.


    Agreed with the first half. Disagree with the 2nd half. Say what you want but IMT is still a force to be reckoned with once they adapt to the meta.
    Unlikely. I'm sure they practiced but not efficiently, as evident by their drafting and execution of strategy.

    Its happened before tbh. :quite

    Is W start the fastest and healthiest first clear for Nid?

    I tried it yesterday and I feel like I cleared faster than Q start and was generally healthier.

    Maybe it was because I got a decent pull on gromp but like Blank and Peanut start W too so :catthinks

    The depends entirely on the player. If you have good mechanics, you can do a full jungle clear + get scuttle, have lvl 4 and be healthy enough to gank after. it looks like it takes some practice tho.

    But yeah, its possible. :cat

    Two sides to every story. Besides, who cares? DoinB really isn't worth an import slot. Dade is playing for QG in playoffs and with Ryze, Zed, TF pretty good right now hopefully he impresses and takes the starting position.

    There's a reason Dade got 0 game time whether it be scrims or on stage games with QG all split, don't you think?

    QG were winning pretty much every game with DoinB/Peco yet they still played Uzi and now he's their main AD. Dade also left the team like halfway through the split or something and only came back since QG starting losing with their mid sub. If Dade was so terrible they would have stuck with their mid sub.
