Evil Geniuses is the 5th invite to ESL One Genting 2018

Evil Geniuses is the 5th invite to ESL One Genting 2018

Insider information tells me that you are talking out of your ass.

Alright since people continue to get confused about this, let's explain the invites.

They're inviting 9 teams, 6 of which are reserved for each region, and then three additional ones based off of performance. EG is the top team in NA, so if any team from NA is going to be invited, it's EG.

Literally half a minute of research and a wee bit of thinking would lead you to this conclusion.

2EZ4RTZ

It's in genting and midone is Malaysian. Still 3 more invites left so secret should get invited unless they refuse to participate

MidOne did it!

MidOne did it!
MidOne did it!

his father passed away one or two days before perfect world master

Parents raise you and support you and love you unconditionally; and all they wish is your happiness and success.

Once you achieve those things, you know you made them proud even if they aren't around to watch anymore. Such a meaningful win for midone and co, well played!

Shit man.

Talk about motivation.

Midone is chinese and we chinese believe that whoever passed away did not leave the world but stay somewhere around the world and watching who they love/care.

Congratulations to the Winners of ROG DreamLeague Major!

Congratulations to the Winners of ROG DreamLeague Major!

Team Secret take the series 3-0 against Team Liquid!

Congratulations to Ace, MidOne, Fata, Yapzor and Puppey!

Puppey has become the 9th person to win a second Major, and the third TI Winner to win two Majors.

Grand Finals Series information.

FATA WON A MAJOR

THE CURSE IS OVER

Fata and Mek

Fata and phase boots, name a more iconic duo

FATA was the MVP of this tournament. What a guy.

Dear Valve, can you put THIS here please?

Dear Valve, can you put THIS here please?

It's in the left side if you're a player in the game. But for spectating, it really needs to be moved to the side.

EDIT : https://imgur.com/a/wRln8 for people who said it's not there.

Pauses too. Denies too. Basically everything that was in the killfeed and was moved into the chat. Makes no fucking sense

Also please stop limiting the chat length valve. I cant scroll up to my roshan timings

Tower denies aren't tho, which is weird since hero denies are.

If you have anyone muted, you can't see if they disconnect or abandon, it's clearly a bit of an oversight on valve's part

Who would win?

Who would win?

Not using "one pirate boi"

4/10 meme

Medals are just an icon DendiFace

One pirate boi against 5 yonkou PogChamp

Midone Rapier Reveal

Kunkka like to play against lone druid , youll always have a target to use tidebringer

Attacker is probably having an orgasm somewhere, and yes i am as well.

He was deleting people every 4 seconds after the courier arrived.

ikr nothing better than a frontliner target than can tank 2k crits and won't die.. while the units at the back eat pure damage 2k crits

Fogged thoughts on DrDisrespect

"We're at the top, but only half-way there... think about it." -Doc

Poor Fogged... granted he's not tall, but all those giant co-workers of his make him look like a freaking midget

Jeremy Lin PogChamp

what 5,8 in cm? silly american metrics

Poor Fogged and the panel configuration.

Poor Fogged and the panel configuration.

I'm upvoting because doc, but the order is wrong. it is Violence, Speed, Momentum, and I only say this so he doesn't show up at your front door with his 6'8'' gaming powerhouse body and his 37'' vertical leap, and just kill you right then and there because he is a ruthless killer.

Speed, Momentum, Violence

And try to avoid getting someone who looks at you like Slacks looks at the Doctor.

You saved a life today

Get someone who looks at you the way Fogged looks at Dr. Disrespect

Get someone who looks at you the way Fogged looks at Dr. Disrespect

Nahaz with the pistol fingers

Zoop πŸ‘‰πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘‰ Zoop

Because Fogged needed more giants next to him.

Anyone else finding it rude?

Nahaz being confused and out of the loop? Never.
