    Groups just got announced. Think B looks slightly tougher, but both seem fairly balanced.

    trashcan fly and trashcan s4 out is the only way for EG to actually win a tournament that matters.

    it's really ppd + mind_control. mc subbed for NiP at the start of the year and peter has mc as his avatar. :pray:

    1. rtz (but anyone really, no affection there) 2. sumail 3. mc 4. zai 5 ppd

    obviously not a reality but this version of eg is unlovable and ppd not being in NA is garbage

    I'm really just hoping for PPD and Matu because I think Matu is too good to stay on that team with Khezu/Milan/Faded, and neither Nisha or Ana are getting replaced by him. If he does leave Chaos after TI his landing spots are probably Alliance or NiP. He's the best player PPD could realistically have a chance at adding.

    Sumail is the one that basically told EG "PPD or me" after TI6 so I think it's safe to say they're never playing together again. Sucks, but PPD's probably never returning to NA. He'd have to find 2 other NA players to team with to set their home base there under Valve's new rules, (EG is basically exempt because they were grandfathered in) and there hasn't been a single new tier 1 NA player since TI5, which is pretty insane.

    Haven’t decided how I’m gonna watch TI with the time difference this year.

    Thinking about VODs on YouTube, although that Jungle Jam in the US time zone sounds fun too.

    Please spoiler results ITT if anyone watches live, but if there’s a good game to watch I’d appreciate knowing that too without spoilers

    yeah, the time zone thing is going to ruin everything. reddit will likely be filled with spoilers. watching VODs on delay is usually boring. idk.

    I can ignore reddit but finding out which VODs to watch is hard, but I’m interested to see how this Jungle Jam stream goes. That could be a great alternative

    TI definitely has less hype for me this year because of China. I want to watch but meh, I don't trust EG to give me those TI5 feels. This squad too goofy.

    Might be the first TI since I started watching Dota I skip, the timezone difference and the fact EG is trash again has me feeling pretty indifferent.
