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

Not once did I say that there was any kind of excuse for why they lost. I'm saying that we as NON-professional players who probably never WILL be professional (most of us) have absolutely no right or grounds to call them "bad" or whine about them losing.

Way to take what I was saying and run in almost the complete opposite direction with it, idiot.

New in this case = better and they weren't ready for it.

Lack of discipline, stale as **** meta in NA, limiting themselves to a small number of champs, and relative inability to adapt (thanks to the meta).

Yeah, no wonder NA is out of the running.

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.
The other teams were well prepared for new playstyles and strategy...

Really, I think NA's problem is just that the teams don't take it seriously enough. They don't practice enough, talk ****, and come to the finals just to fall flat.

Honestly. The reason that NA lost is because of picking/bans, and lack of champion pool.

Also, there are too many op champions in the champion pool right now.

It's sad because other regions have had the game for less time yet they play better.

Yet another person who thinks I'm making excuses.

Look, the FACT of the matter is that they weren't ready to go up against new playstyles and strategies. Whether that's because they weren't trying or just weren't born with the capability, the -- I'll say it again -- FACT is that they weren't prepared for that. If they had been, they would have won. Those are the only two possibilities. Either they came prepared to counter the Korean strategy, and won because of it, or they came unprepared and lost. So I'm NOT making excuses, I'm stating fact.

My OPINION is that we have no right to make assumptions or accusations, or give them a hard time about it. Because the vast majority of us will never be as good as they are, even if they didn't win the WC. THAT'S what I'm saying.
