And honestly, that can really be the best thing for the team to stay emotionally grounded, and still feel like they have each others' backs after getting trounced. Knowing that your boys are able to cope with that in a similar way can give you a lot of confidence in your ability to come back stronger as a group. I'm glad they took a game as well, because it'd probably be way more disheartening. I really do hope they bounce back and continue looking great in summer split.

Yea, Faker has been inting that lane a lot even Knight lost that lane tbf, T1 needs to ban Talyah if he can't lane into her and even if he does, Taliyah just makes it impossible for T1 botlane to play the game.

Faker was not happy after the game ended, I'm pretty sure most of them still are after the BLG loss.
Idk if this series (or even the whole MSI so far) was them slowly learning the meta but just basing it off this series alone (and esp Game 4), I think they are. Or I might just be on copium.

u/F3nRa3L 9d ago

Its hard to change things over such a short time. We have alot of Bo5s but they barely are 2 days apart before you had to play again

They need to make Worlds and show it again so it can at least be consistent. You can definitely see the improvement from the beginning of the year to now.

It feels a lot better than some past NA teams that just get stomped with no real chance to win and they don't learn much from the experience on top of that.

u/milkoverspill All will be frozen. 9d ago

I have so much respect for Kobe. I know how much the LCS means to him but he never lets his bias take him out of casting. He’s vocal about his favoritism for the NA teams, but I don’t think–through all the shit he’s seen–he’s ever just stopped doing his job. I don't know how he's able to sound so hyped despite seeing his region's representatives getting put through the blender, especially after having a couple of promising games.

59

u/DaleoHS Didn't realise they changed these o.0 9d ago

Respect all the casters having to do this. It’s what I liked most about phreak casting. He hyped up the winning EU teams so many times in the EU v NA games. “This is what peak league of legends looks like” for example. Couldn’t even hear bias in his voice.

Kobe is obviously biased but takes his job seriously and pushes through. Respect all the same.

42

u/milkoverspill All will be frozen. 9d ago

The NA casters are goated, honestly.

Not to talk bad about these two because I'm sure they've improved, but it's what I think was bad about that infamous Drakos and Frosk cast of G2 vs DWG in Worlds 2020 Semi Finals. It's fine to be upset about your region not doing good, it's fine to be biased to an extent; but you never bail out on a cast. Those two stopped calling plays and stopped hyping spectators in a year where that was the most needed considering there was no live audience.

u/Conankun66 9d ago

T1 were ANGRY in game 4, fucking hell

that was a stomp and a half. 11k lead at 18 minutes

anticlimactic ending to an absolutely mad series

60

u/ItsSanoj 9d ago

Yeah, i was expecting them to be methodical once they had a lead but they just went for it. Lead was too big to throw, so honestly a lot more fun this way

u/qonoxzzr Chovy <3 9d ago

Smart by TL to let Ori open when it is clear for weeks now that banning out Faker is a wincon.

u/ManningTheGOAT 9d ago

BLG banning 5 mid champs against Faker: 😀

TL giving Faker fucking Orianna for match point: 😪

I wrote this in a separate comment but G4 shows the dominance of T1 if their playstyle is allowed to just happen which is to absolutely destroy lanes and snowball really fast, but the previous 3 games were very neck and neck bc TL managed to escape the earlygame

I think GenG has been the only eastern team to adjust and make sense of the lane swap meta

That TL draft in game 4 was an abomination. Placing all your hopes on Umti swiftness boots Lillia, when he’s inted the entire series, while leaving up Vayne is malpractice.

205

u/AhbzV 9d ago

Yeah, but that is kind of TL's identity, right? Even when a member is performing poorly, they put complete faith in him. It reminds me a little of T1, because TL genuinely like and trust each other.

I think it's a good mindset, but it definitely bit them a little here. Had they just put Umti on anything that could lock Vayne down, this may have been a different game. Maybe.

But truthfully, I don't think TL could ever take 3 straight off T1. They aren't at that level yet. This tournament definitely made them a better team though - and it's encouraging to see them not fold up and quit after the brutal TES series.

u/Baofog 9d ago

I mean compare this TL to last week of the regular season TL when we were struggling to take wins off bottom half LCS teams. I'll take this MSI performance. I'm proud of my team.

30

u/Saephon 9d ago

You should be. All NA fans should be proud of TL this tournament. They dumpstered Fnatic, and had 3 very competitive games against T1. Go back in time to April and tell fans that's what happens, and they'd take that in a heartbeat.

It gets so old having people doom and gloom NA as being complete garbage, and then on the VERY RARE occasion they step it up but fall just short in the end, all of a sudden it's okay to trash them for.... checks notes..... doing better than expected?? Like there's no winning, man.

We fucking take these. Looking forward to Worlds.

Faker priority has been Azir/Ori > Taliyah > Ahri but TL really thought letting Faker get Ori is a great idea? Even BLG has more respect than TL.

FWIW ziggs is a good matchup into Ori in theory

T1 vs TL Reddit Ratings Game 4


Take the poll here

View the results here


The poll attempts to emulate the Hupu ratings. It includes a rating of each player and coach from 1 to 10 for their performance this match, asks who the MVP is, and has an optional comment for any specific remarks.

When the Hupu translations get posted, I will post a comment in that thread summarising the reddit rankings so we can compare to Hupu.

Game 4 is going to overshadow a genuinely incredible performance from TL here, they, and especially Yeon can go home with their heads held high.

u/jasonkid87 9d ago

TL definitely didn't disappoint this MSI unlike FQ lol. It feels like TL was a whole diff team in MSI

u/MedievalMovies 9d ago

can't say it wasn't for a lack of trying. If they didn't throw game 2 they'd have been in such a good position in game 4...

At least TL actually tried to make plays, unlike NA teams from the past who did nothing and lost.

The samira game was clean af. Game would have been over for TL way earlier if it wasn't for him blocking projectiles for other people.

u/AstreiaTales 9d ago

Ngl there's an argument that he's the best Western AD right now.

Not by a wide margin mind you, and if you picked someone like Hans or Berserker I'd get it, but his name has to be in the convo no?

u/GinkgoPete Pyosik Fanboy 9d ago

Honestly even with Jungle and Support being very questionable this entire series it was still a banger.

I just hope that the classic NA of "Show glimmers of hope once and then completely dissapear" doesnt happen to this Team and they can actually build on this for once. Especially considering how far APA and Yeon already came and how solid Impact has been for years.

u/PM_JINX_HENTAI Zeus & Keria my goats 9d ago

Faker: "Your yapping meant nothing. As long as you were on the rift, you would be torn apart. It was a near impossible draft to pull off, but it proved to be quite effective."

Faker: "You did well, APA. I won't forget you for as long as I live."

Sparing no time to mourn the elimination of APA... he launches onto the battlefield. G2 Caps. The god of the West.

Faker using binding vows to make the korean players on his enemy team int.
"TL will gain a 2k gold advantage from us inting, but in return Umti will get caught when baron spawns."

TL just really focusing Faker all series worked against them when they gave him Ori. When Faker has mobility and comfort, he's going to win.

Yeon was a force this series man. It's been a long time since I've seen an NA ADC not afraid to throw hands against Eastern teams. He should be proud of what he did this tournament.

u/The_Flowers_of_Evil 9d ago

Yeah I'm worried they're definitely gonna get out drafted by G2. If they draft evenly I think they're better.

36

u/Himexcandy33 9d ago

Draft is one thing, macro is another. In game 4 it looks like T1 finally understood the assignment and snowballed lane to lane quite quickly when everyone found their hands again

30

u/OAOAlphaChaser 9d ago

My favorite part was everyone on T1 trying to hold a freeze, Guma gets killed by a sudden engage by Rell then it was just "fuck it, hands diff these fools."

17

u/Himexcandy33 9d ago

Exactly, definitely miss their confident gameplays like that. T1 is all about hands diffing, Faker global taunt and his playmaking ability but given he is underperforming and playing limited champs/ getting mid bans/mid solo killed the others apart from guma haven't been popping off mechanically either. They can only do so much in terms of draft. They're lucky it was TL today and mechanically speaking bit of hands diff there. Whereas G2 is playing their own off meta picks and executing them well, every player is playing well. Let's just hope T1 can bounce back and show us some clean gameplay

An NA peak classic performance by TL there. Perform godly and give NA fans the most massive hopium for the first 3 games then vomit out the most shit performance the entire year in match point for equal disappointment.

T1 also looked absolutely fucking shaky though G2 might sweep them this Friday
