    For some reason, I'm just not that excited for this tournament. I hope there are some good games early in the group stage to get me hype for the rest. I think part of it is the format, which isn't even bad. Round robin is fantastic. Who doesn't want to see all the teams play each other? But BO1 with teams playing 3 games a day doesn't lend itself well to the highest quality play. On the other hand, there are obvious time restrictions. Not mad at Riot for setting it up this way, but just more upset that tournaments can't be played in an alternate universe with perfect conditions.

    Double RR would be perfect but there sadly isn't enough time. Speaking of, the times are awful. I can understand Thu/Fri, but why start Sa/Su that late.

    Will the play offs be rigged?

    It'd suck to see TSM vs SK T1 in the first group rounds prior to the final.

    Otherwise, I also find it amusing that the wildcard team, whom I believe are relatively unknown but the article says they have potential to cause upsets, is going up what is arguably the best team in the world in the opening match. Cruel twist of fate eh? Reminds me of (football/soccer) Tahiti vs Spain back in the Fifa Confederations Cup.

    Me me me I would like one too! lol

    edit: would love to see bjk give SK T1 a good fight, or outright stomp though. Didn't Korean teams blamed the food/timezone during IEM? I wonder if the same will repeat this time

    What do you mean? It's going to be seeded based on the RR standings. Pretty standard 1v4, 2v3 semis.

    IIRC it was CJ which arrived 24hrs prior to start and couldn't find any time to eat properly before the first match. It wasn't the best situation but nowhere nearly as bad as INTZ had it at IWCI.

    EDG is running a travel blog with lots of infos and pictures and a guy on reddit translates them: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3

    very rarely will someone lose that bad and not have an excuse, you can even look at real life sports i.e the most recent boxing

    Ah I mean the 2 favourites (that everyone is talking about, well, everyone that's not Korean so it seems) TSM and SKT. Would someone modify the groupings so they don't face each other off immediately but towards a semi or a final instead, that's all. For drama/viewing/and probably money purposes! Was just curious. But if it depends on points, then fair enough I guess. First time viewing this stuff here so I wasn't sure how the placements worked exactly hehe. Quite excited either way.

    They won't bother. It's too short of a tournament.

    I also wouldn't be surprised to see SKT get pushed around a bit.

    Yeah. I fly to Thailand tomorrow (yay), but the entire second group stage is during my flight (nuu) and the semi/finals start at 3am (nuuuuu). I don't mind VODs for the group stage but would love to watch the semi/finals live.

    Probably doesn't help much, but it looks like there will be a rebroadcast 11 hours later.
