#30 NIP gets knocked out of major qualifier in CSGO General Discussion

What you don't seem to get is that I believe that NiP should never have had to go through qualifiers.
You're literally saying FlipSide is more deserving of a major spot than all those top 10 teams who had to earn their spot through the qualifiers. FlipSide, it's not even a top 20 team. At the moment the way you can get to the major is different based on the results you had at the last major. Which took place in last July. And as I said already during that time span, dignitas won Epicenter, NiP won IEM, Optic won Eleague, right now they're all legit top 10 teams and yet their place at the major wasn't guaranteed because of results they had MONTHS AGO.

The fact of the matter is, NiP is currently a top 10 team, so are dignitas, Optic and G2, and they still had to qualify. Since they won IEM Oakland their results haven't been particularly good, but NiP is still a top 10 team, whether you like it or not. And they won't be at the major. Same for Immortals, they're probably top 15 and they didn't make it.
Why wouldn't Valve invite teams to the major based on their recents results ? We'd only be guaranteed to have strong teams. Don't we want the very best teams in the world at the major to give us the best show possible ? This is not something we can have with the current Legends system. If I were to consider the HLTV ranking, which I don't really like, 6 out of 10 teams in the top 10 had to qualify. Way to give us the best show possible.
I could also bring up fnatic's case : they changed 3 of their players and yet retain their major spot ? This isn't nearly the same team as the one that made the semi-final of ESL One Cologne. I really fail to see the logic of this system.

I'm sick of arguing with you, so I'll just redirect you to Thorin's video on that matter in which he explains his point of view on the legends system.

pendagambits not that bad tho

Yes, I agree, but imo their lack of significants results makes them a team less deserving of a major spot compared to the likes of dignitas, Optic or NiP who all won big tournaments recently. Doesn't necessarily imply they don't deserve a spot at the major though.

alfayeah the system is always unfair when your favourite team doesn't make it

Too bad NiP is not my favourite team. You gotta admit there's a problem when teams like Flipside and Gambit are already qualified while NiP, G2, Dignitas, Immortals all have to go through the qualifier to get to the major.
The "They just had to win against FlipSide" excuse is pretty bs to me. This was months ago. After Cologne, dignitas won Epicenter, NiP won IEM Oakland, Optic won ELeague and yet all those teams had to qualify while Flipside and Gambit, who had no notable results during that time span, already have their place in the major.

This whole "Legend status" is bullshit and should simply be abandoned imo.

HypnotizeLoosing 16-2 on one of their best maps https://static-cdn.jtvnw.net/emoticons/v1/64138/1.0

Stop it already, Cache stopped being one of NiP's strongest maps months ago already.

Really don't know what's got into them though. That only goes to show how fucking broken the system to get to a major is : Flipside and Gambit are legends while NiP won't even be there and yet are arguably a much stronger team.

#29 How do you study? in Off Topic

Lots of studying at the library, and I do tons of exams from the past years and once I finished all the exercices check the corrected version to see which mistakes I made. It helps a lot.

#5 looking for a zowie mouse in Hardware

Pretty sure if you use a fingertip grip, you should avoid the EC Series, they're mostly meant for palm grip users. The FK2 could be a good replacement for your Kinzu, but because of your hand's size I wonder if going with the FK1 wouldn't be a better choice.

If you liked the Kinzu v2 and didn't think it was like too small for you, I'd suggest you get the FK2.

#14 Phones in Off Topic

The Honor 5C is pretty great for this range of price, you won't find much better than this imo.

Also yeah, OnePlus' phones are more expensive but they offer the best quality/price ratio, by FAR.

#14 how do you feel about overwatchs competitive scene in Other Games

I dont' feel anything regarding OW's comp scene, because I never gave a fuck about it. I'm just glad some ex-TF2 players are able to pursue their gaming career thanks to it.

#13 Coach to i58 maybe unfair? in TF2 General Discussion
KonceptAlso, wasn't the point that was made was something along the lines of "if the other team allows it, then its okay"? I may be wrong on that but I feel like if the coach is just first person spectating the players and not going into any third person views it can be justified.

If crowns had their DHS lineup with Stark on pocket and Kaptain on scout, there would possibly have been a much different outcome to i58, with crowns maybe not even making it past froyo (anything is possible in speculation though). But I don't think it should be a total allow/ban thing because it affects all sorts of teams differently. I think if a team allows it, then that's their decision and vice versa.

If we allow coaches to maincall based on the other team's decision, we might at a point see the same problems that occurred with Vinland in season 14 or 15. There was a plugin that allowed players to change their fov after OpenPlugin was banned, and you could either be ok with it or deny the right to use it to the other team. Darn was playing with a higher fov, and eventually Crack Clan didn't allow him to change his fov. Drama followed, and any fov changing was permanently banned shortly after.

I think coaches should only be able to give some tips and strats to their team during pre-game and in-between maps. Giving them the right to maincall is pushing the thing too far imo and removes an important aspect from the game.
