Samsung Galaxy vs. G2 Esports / 2017 World Championship - Group C / Post-Match DiscussionWORLDS 2017
Samsung have secured a spot in the Quarter-Finals.
FNCs hope was Longzhu. G2s hope is 1907 Fenerbahçe lmao
QU1CKSHOT really killed it casting this game, huge props to him
FNCs hope was also GAM who clearly is on a different level from the other wildcards.
G2 got absolutely fucked by their group draw as the first seed.
Zven: Trist is open. Should I pick Trist?
Coach: Nah, I want another Hextech Chest.
makes last year's TSM Fail less depressing tbh.
RNG + SSG is brutal, thats it. Ironically enough SSG seems worse than 2016 and RNG better than 2016 though
Joey "Outdrafted" Steltenpool
<3 Thanks so much! I got so wrapped up in the crowd hype, the excitement of the fight and the action on screen I ended up screaming into the mic lol. I LOVE being back on the caster desk and what a way to be welcomed back! Thank you so much for the kind words but I couldn't do what I do without being covered by Kobe / Vedius all game and all the colour casters dropping bombs all Worlds long.
EDIT Screaming, not creaming, though I may have done that if G2 turned it around :P
When your entire team does magic damage, it's a good idea to pick an ADC that does 50% magic damage as well. It builds team unity and cohesion.
Top 5 Tanks at Worlds 2017:
This is literally the same script that TSM got last year. A desperate fight in the deciding game with Ryze in the midlane trying to pull the miracle. A glimmer of hope but it's not enough.
Jesus perkz played his heart out though
90% of our damage is magic?
Better leave Galio open vs. korean team.
Well at least the 4th of the group last year (Splyce) helped TSM by beating RNG once . G2 isnt that lucky
Literally had a coherent string of casting/play by play for 3 minutes straight.
Quickshot is bae.
my coach is worse
KT Rolster PTSD
my ryze is very good
Brother Youngbuck with 200 IQ drafts
honestly feels like G2 lost this in draft, very silly not to ban galio when they're locked into at least 3 primarily magic damage champions.
janna as 3rd ban in 1st rotation would have been better than sej IMO, force SSG to choose between sej/Lulu and take the remaining champion
when Trist is open
Don't know why G2 picked Kogmaw, they ended up with too much magic damage. Made it easy for tanks to itemize against.
wtf is Zac in a Janna/Lulu meta and ofc Trick gets called useless again
Dude... That was some of the best shoutcasting I've EVER heard....
you guessed it right
im g2 perkz
Syndra > Ryze
Tristana > Kog'maw
Trundle > Maokai
Was it really?
God hates the West.
That KogMaw pick....(Mage and 2x AP tank? Lets pick AP carry bot aswell...)
it was actually at 70 after Tricks smite. This screenshot is taken after another auto attack by someone.
It was Trick's auto
creaming into the mic
Lmao as gracious? Is this troll or not? Because TSM and their fans have been crucified for last years groups since it happened. Only until very recently did people start admitting TSM did fine in the clear group of death.
But as soon as it happens to G2(who I personally cheer for) people gather up to defend them. It was the opposite last year for TSM. And I am a fan of both these teams. I don't condone any flaming for losing in this group. But it is funny how people act as if 80% of the community didn't turn on TSM.
When Xayah is open too..
How the fuck are we still losing games because of bad drafts? What are these coaches doing?!?
And EU is getting the NA script.FNC (C9) getting barely into quarters G2 (TSM) in a desperate spot MSF (CLG) just out (?)
Do you remember the LCS, Mr. TSM? It'll be the spring split soon. With the crowds chanting your name. And you'll start out the split slow...but then you'll pick up and get stronger and stronger. Do you remember the taste of finals?
That's what happens when you pick a full magic damage comp and let Galio open until 5th pick
Game lost at Draft. Disappointed when that happens.
if tsm grabbed one game from RNG it would have. TSM just like G2 here lost two games to a team killing any possibility of a tiebreaker
They got the (apparently) best Chinese team and last year's Worlds finalists... They did well though. It's still possible to go through if RNG fuck up but most likely they won't.
Thanks so much! I was doing a role that wasn't my core strength. Back in the day I was a colour caster when Deman and Joe were PBP, obviously! Those dudes are amazing and IMO Joe Miller is still the greatest PBP for League that has ever been. I'm so fortunate to have worked with them and learned from them, and when I moved to full time PBP I've been able to grow and develop my style and strengths and let loose my energy!!
In Trick's defense, that was a bang-bang baron steal play. Score's play on the other hand... It tilted me that Monte said it was a good play and got unlucky..
Or just pick trist.
even better, NA can go 0-11.
People will say that G2 at least went with dignity. I say this draft was atrocious and playing for late game vs SSG is just suicide when G2 is playing the same style. It seems they didn't learn from RNG win last week at all. Still this tournament was quite good for them, not like Worlds 2016 and MSI 2016.
Also Quickshot rules!
Zven should had 100% gone standard crit build.
Pretty obvious enemy team is going to stack mr like crazy....
When G2 drafted Kog into their full AP comp I wanted to cry. And when Zven rushed rageblade, I did. Tristana was open as well. What a tragedy. Probably the worst draft in worlds so far.
when your back is against the wall and you need to beat the koreans, it isn't a good day to be you. Let this be a lesson to the west: don't perform well at MSI?
He got the marriage buff just like Ambition
Meanwhile NA can still go 0-10
Not sure what was more impressive, Quickshot's casting near the end, or how bad G2's draft was
That draft was so depressing
Perkz played so well in these teamfights honestly, but how can it matter with double adaptative helmets galio/chogath, and twitch lulu that can basically facetank you
Idk what you were even expecting with that zac pick, there is no way you can catch a twitch buffed by lulu, and who will be stealthed before the beginning of the fight anyway with a freaking zac e All his game amounted to e somewhere, touch no one obviously, R to zone a bit and get back to your team, and that's it, you're stuck with dealing 2% max hp dmg times to times for the rest of it.
Zven made questionable choices aswell, the game played at 3 and 4 items there was no time to wait for him to get his IE 5 item The rageblade rush in that magic dmg draft :/ Brk runaan IE would have at least allowed him to have some weight when all the ennemy team basically had no armor at this point.
In my opinion in term of personal performance despite the draft, Perkz is the one that really outdone himself
Should have picked Corki ADC
G2 deserves to lose when they left GALIO open and picked Maokai and Ryze instead.
Such a hilariously bad p/b from Mr. Youngbuck.
More like 20 IQ
G2 didn't even get a single tower. SSG had control over the game from start to finish. All drakes, all barons, all towers. Everything
When Twitch is open as well...
Please remember that one of the largest reasons they looked so good at MSI was because they were outdrafting SKT
It's not only 1907 fenerbahce. -They have to beat 1907 fenerbahce. -1907 Fenerbahce has to beat RNG. - Samsung galaxy has to beat RNG And after all that G2 has to beat RNG.
Too much magic damage on that team comp, definitely should've went for Trist. They could no kill Galio at all.
Even though G2 lost, perkz was pretty impressive.
Yeah... that's the worst way to lose as a player, being put into a situation where the enemy comp is simply better and you have to play twice as hard to win.
Considering the team comps they did super well.
That first nexus hold sequence where he just fucking went for forever. Serious respect for some of the best casting I've ever heard, and credit to the rest of the casters for just letting him go off.
Galio hyper-scales with MR too. Literally the dream comp for Crown.
EU seriously needs good coaches. Fnatic FUCKING improved without a coach.
When Prolly is the best coach in the region, your region has ass coaches
I swear if G2 gets out of this group, i'll snort 2 lines of wasabi.
What a garbage draft by youngbuck
It's difficult for people to remember further back than the last game they watched.
The KT one was so much worse, that fucking Smeb GP ult
Whoever suggested that Zac pick should get beaten up in a corner.
i think the ryze pick was fine
perkz did a good job with his cc and burst but they needed some physical damage
they really should have picked tristana there.could get them some towers early too
Imo, they all played well. It was an entertaining game even though G2 was pretty much always behind
Yeah their draft was just bad, specially when crown is known for his galio, they could of easily banned it at any point or picked it.
If you're giving away galio why the hell would you willingly pick kog'maw? At that point twitch was open as well, and you still had the option of tristana. A team that is almost pure magic dmg is just useless vs double tank in a meta where adaptive helm is insanely good.
Lost in the draft.
well.. G2 played well. SSG was better. i wish G2 got to quarters instead of Fnatic but oh well...
"SSG is just too slow, G2 can beat them because they're fast" - Jatt & Frosk. Some good stuff.
Seriously lost in champ select. What the hell were they thinking not taking Trist.
Thats why you dont draft all magic damage
machineman quickshot is love oh boy how i missed him
So sad for Perkz, he played like a beast, but in this meta it didn't matter one bit.
They also won their first game today vs RNG through outdrafting
Probably get hate for this but he's been the best EU mid since MSI
No Perkz played really good.
3 of those 4 things seem pretty likely tbh
The draft was so bad...
they all played to their best ability, there's just so much you can do with a draft like that
This game was ruined by G2's draft...
Didnt G2 play it super well considering the draft?
Best performance by EU this game was quickshots play by play.
TSM was a Doublelift missplay away from beating SSG twice, securing first place in their group, which then would've meant C9 in quarters and H2k in semis. I don't see what's so freaking ridiculous about the hype that existed around TSM last year. They got a super hard group and in the end got beaten by RNGs style that they could not handle. It's not like they went out 0-6 and disappointed every one. They weren't so far away from peoples expectations as it seems when you just say "they did not get out of groups".
One of them is extremely unlikely, and if it doesn't happen G2 is out
Daddy olaf wouldn't be bad i think. True dmg and cc Immunity shits on galio
Maybe it's not a popular opinion. But i think misfits has the best coach in EU. He just get's overlooked since people like youngbuck or prolly are more popular
