why cant we blame?

korean and chinese teams always download NA replays for learning and researching against NA's tactics.. but what NA teams did? they played livestreams all days and thought korean team is nothing

u should know korean replays are free for downloading on internet.

NA teams don't seem to have the same level of dedication, and don't seem to take the game quite as seriously.

NA is lacking in top laners.

There. I said it. They are no where near the level of Wickd, Darien, Shy, etc.

Dyurs is an inventor, and people copy what he does.
Look at jayce/kayle/singed etcetc hes a trend setter.

Its true hes a weaker player when playing the 'norm' but dear god hes amazing at cranking out new things.

only reason why "NA tactics" work in the NA scene is because its really not NA tactics but EU and Asia tactics... right now thats what the pro NA teams are doing. As you can see when they go up against the ppl who originally made that tactic they get **** on...

imo if NA pro teams want to be taking seriously they need to stop copying tactics to counter that same tactic. And they need to find other ways to counter cause the copy the enemy tactic is not working for em on the world scale lvl

Exactly. NA teams cant think for themselves they have to copy or take notes from other foreign teams. CLG.NA went to korea (Still failed) and I think TSM as always admired M5 and gets most of their ideas from them.

look at m5 who plays so many different champions... in roles no1 would expect.... the best are always those who can do the unexpected (just an example)


you must be blind if u didn't see that mid evelyn and zyra support coming. eve needs gold to progress zyra's base values are high enough to be gold starved

From what I know (which admittedly isn't much), North American tactics have worked for teams in North America up until this point. How can you blame them for being poorly prepared for a new playstyle and strategy?
Like, yeah, it really sucks that they couldn't keep up. But I'm sure next year they'll have a better idea what they're dealing with and will play accordingly.

Besides, unless you yourself turned down an invite to compete in the world championship, you probably have no idea what you're talking about.


clg and dig just come back from korea, and they said they had learnt alot and improved

tsm got 0-5 in mlg summer arena, it they dont prepare for korean teams that's definitely their faults

No, you are the one who doesn't know what you're talking about. Your logic isn't exclusive to North American teams; Korean teams, Chinese teams, European teams, etc. had no advantage over global tactics either. In addition, both CLG and Dignitas played abroad for a while.

Stop making excuses for why the NA teams lost. They got outplayed. There's no other reasons.
