    I'm really hoping the crowd picks their shit up once the games start. From watching the team intros, it seems like they are going to be super biased to the home country teams. Though they did actually give EG, VP and OG a decent reception.

    Absolutely shocked brew was never picked in group stage. I didn't think you could nerf him hard enough to make that ult not worth it

    Come on EG, don't be a bitch. Fight for your spot you pansy losers. Secret is good, but they aren't superior to you. Also fuck OG.

    Also, BO1s are fun when it's not your team. I also want to see Infamous do well cause no one expects it. Also I can't stay up cause I wake up at 5am, so fuck China.

    Also.

    Want Newbee and EG to win.

    After digging more into the Fly and Notail beef, it’s hard to not side with Notail, however, they’re both pretty big babies for not resolving it.

    I mean, OG was struggling and it technically worked for both parties well. Better for OG, but EG’s consistency and placing have earned better checks than what OG was doing pre-break up

    OG shitting on Fly/S4 (and EG) remains great even if OG is obnoxious

    it also may lead to eg.ppd so it's doubly great

    It’s clear to me s4 is the weakest link. It will be interesting to see what happens in the shakeup. The wildest thing to me about TI8 is Ceb basically going from coach of 2 years to an elite 3 position in 3 months.

    There being a player like Topson as an FA was fortunate and their previous chemistry with Ana all became this melting pot of great Dota.

    I’m excited for tonight. Newbee which is formally 4/5 of VGJ.Storm gave OG a lot of problems last season. It will be interesting to see how the drafts go. OG always comes across as a team that understands the meta really well and even when they don’t have players who utilize those heroes, they’re still able to do well because of teamwork and belief.

    I just really dislike Ceb tbh. I like everyone else on the team. N0tail might be the best player of all time IMO when you take everything into consideration.

    Same, Ceb is the only one I really dislike of the 5. I just can't get past them ruining my viewing experience last year by constantly using all the fucking chat lines during the games.

    I'm already really looking forward to the post TI shuffle this year. Last year's was really tame and I think this year's is going to be a return to the norm where there's tons of changes.

    I thought Liquid would mostly stay together because I thought they'd do well, but if they bomb out really early I could see them going full disband, especially after kicking Matu already. Virtus Pro too. Then there's also some blue chips on the table already in PPD/Matu, and I could see CCnC and MSS getting offers from bigger teams. They've looked really good throughout the qualifiers and TI. 23savage is gonna have huge offers coming his way too.

    Fly is a colossal anchor around EG's neck. He sucks ass at drafting and captaining. S4 was also never good and made his name on alliances disgusting subhuman rat dota that was only good for a single patch.

    cr1t sucks ass too. fucking anti-clutch.

    Sumail at mid, arteezy carry, ppd captain hard support, 33 offlane and find any 4. fucking it get fear back in this bitch.

    Rooting for OG. Love their style. Fuck Ceb though. Jerax has always been one of my favorite players in Dota.

    Similarly, I hate Secret, fuck Puppey, but go Zai.
