    Same as usual from EG, no emotion, kinda shitty drafts.

    OG probably the only hope to upset China honestly and I'm not sure they can do it.

    OG looks really good imo. I can't stand them but I think they're as much of a favorite as anyone outside of LGD.

    QC were very fortunate to not lose to SG in game 2; SG just kind of choked. also think Secret doesn't look that great and am surprised that both they and Spirit ended up in the upper bracket.

    Undying kinda sorta looks like the best NA team in groups. Timado makes too many mistakes for them to be considered a real threat, though.

    I really haven’t had much time to watch TI yet, but a couple things struck me from watching the OG/EG matches.
    1. Didn’t realize Sumail moved to position 1. He is having a great tournament it seems.
    2. Love seeing these Aghs Lycian games. Wolfs errywhere :harb:
    3. Agree with what’s been said: OG is the only hope against PSG.LGD.

    I'm glad Spirit played out of their minds game 1 to delay the OG/Secret series for me. Just getting onto Twitch.

    What a team fight at 19min in G1 of Secret/OG. I don’t play the same game these guys do :laugh:

    Edit - even though OG lost that game, one of the coolest moments for me was Sumail having the presence as a former mid player to get the solo kill by posting up at the top run, knowing ember would remnant back there

    100% expected EG to lose and early exit, but was nice to see them dominate Elephant. Let's see if they can rally. Both teams I want to watch in the lower bracket. RIP.

    Quinn has improved a lot. He's been with the rest of Quincy for a long time so don't know that he'd move but I think he's probably earned a shot with a better team at this point.

    Quincy crew played out of their minds early and mid-game. Just couldn't overcome late game Topson/Sumail

    Idk who to cheer for now that EG is out.

    T1? Team Spirit? VP?

    I’m torn on OG and Secret because I can’t stand Puppey and Ceb but I root for Sumail and Zai.

    in order of preference

    1. secret; zai and matumba seem cool. would be amazing for ppy to win ti1 and ti10
    2. t1l; i think kuku was railroaded a couple of years ago. 23savage and karl are both fun to watch
    3. the chinese teams. i think i like LGD the most but no real distinction between them, VG, and IG
    4. the tournament being cancelled due to covid or otherwise
    5. og winning again. sumail is mostly likable but i can't stand any of the three from their original wins

    I used to be big anti-OG guy but I like SumaiL too much. Def my favorite player since ppd and universe retired. I'm just not sure this current OG team is good enough.

    Secret looking really strong and I have no issues with them. So secondary I guess.

    I don’t know why everyone lets puppey have Ench. He makes the hero look completely OP every single game, and it counters good meta heroes like ET because of the dispel.
