a lan where in the last 2 minutes of the last game they dropped the other teams med pushing last and failed to move quickly for literally no reason
How was that raymon's fault? Freestate drew 2 players back at the end for like 2 minutes. That is in no way raymon's fault.
I mean i'll give its probably due to the teamplay aswell that they lost but there was alot of times in my mind that they really failed to take advantage of situations based on uber ads and situations with a little faster paced play or more "risk" shall we say, they'd have won more situations and even if they didn't the backfire potential would have been very minimal (i.e like pushing faster when their med drops so if you fail the push their meds only on like 10 or 20% instead of 50-60%), the pre-i58>i58 roster of Crowns never played so slow that a 50% uber ad was a failed push so many times, really sloppy play IMO from them, and raymon should have been telling their maincaller about an issue like that, they had the upper hand so many times (which is a core part of their playstyle) and then gave it away for next to no reason.
In that last game I said to a friend who was also watching the game "I bet 7 Don't push until the other team is atleast 40% uber" and I was right, they were doing that in multiple games even outside of grand finals
I can understand not wanting to throw away such a careful situation but there is a thin line between being safe and being too safe and I feel that most of the time they were playing too safe.
downfrag me if you want I'm gonna stick to my guns :)
