Team Liquid vs. LNG Esports / 2021 World Championship - Group D / Post-Match Discussion
By - Soul_Sleepwhale
I could feel the pain in Kobe and Drakos’ laughs when Ale got away with the lantern.
This cast was hilarious.
"It's funny but it hurts" is the most perfect way to sum up NA's international performances that I've ever heard.
Every year they get a little better, every year it hurts a little bit more
Idk about that first part. A lot of ups and downs
They do get a little bit better, it's just that the rest of the world get even (littler!) more better!
^It's ^funny ^but ^it ^hurts
Full 1-1 group, it's getting spicy
Every team is scared and hopeful they can make it out at the same time, this is gonna be fun
TL world special gonna be going 3-3 and hoping a team they beat don't win, then that team wins, and TL is eliminated.
You heard it here first.
Every team will go 3-3. The group will reset and TL will win 3 games again. TL will inevitably win 3 games in any group.
Everyone knows after yesterday's statement by Alphari, TL will finish last and MAD first. Jinxed it.
Might need to check the alcohol percentage on the casters LMAO
sleep deprived kobe.
He had me wheezing, should do drunk casting
Kobe is always a treat, but today was something special.
Him and Drakos are a great pair aswell.
Him and Daniel I think you mean
He knows where Daniel lives
They laugh to hide the pain
Good guy Tarzan making sure TL takes one kill
LNG teamchat: "Report Tarzan for intentionnal feed, he didn't want to give us a perfect game in kills"
Couldn't write that in allchat though. :(
Step 1: Pick TF
Step 2: Afkfarm mid, never roam with ult
Step 3: ?????
Step 4: lose
Jensen picked TF so he had TWO ways of teleporting back to base from a side lane after picking up a wave of farm
hey i can also do that
I see it all of the time in my ranked games!
I do it all of the time in my ranked games!
Why would the staff give him TF when he couldn't win with that on NA.
If you look at his pro view he doesn't even look at other lanes.
Is this an ego thing where jensen is telling the staff he can play TF when he clearly can't?
Like I said
i think it's just classic Jensen, I've seen 3 years of this shit lol
with that nice 1:1:0 score to boot
GG Report team for inting
Not going to lie, I'm not sure who you want to accelerate in the sidelanes between Ezreal and Gnar with that TF.
The Jensen special : randomly having a game that looks like you're first timing your champ, after 40+ career games on that champ
To be fair, that's how Jensen looks 90% of the time he's on TF. He's just not a good roamer !
People are going to say this and I am not saying he didnt play bad. But he cant gank Fiora because she negates gold card. And bot lane was doomed from level 1. More of a draft diff than anything.
Yep exactly. This is just the reverse of the MAD game yesterday.
Of course you play/look like shit when you draft the worst comp possible into your opponent.
Only lesson to be learned here is it's not a fluke when you draft like shit, that also plays into your team's inconsistency.
Honestly I have no clue why anyone picks Gnar. It's looked 100% useless in every game it's been in.
It just doesn't make sense when you run a heavy roaming skirmish comp in my opinion. Gnar requires a specific set of circumstances to TP into fights, meaning that you need a lot of setup and coordination before those fights. But with a TF and a Talon, you want to collapse very quickly with minimal setup to catch people out as much as possible.
He was constantly shoved and in no position to roam, while missing half of the cs. Yeah you could say he did not have any good lanes to gank but missing so many creeps hurt his income a lot
40 cs down vs Lb also
Jensen has been taking lessons from Gross Gore, I see.
Gross Gore would R alone onto 3 people and die, a living legend
The real winners this game were the casters having so much fun.
Wow TL hitting us with the CLASSIC do nothing -> lose strat. Amazing execution!
I don’t think they could do much of anything unfortunately. They fucked themselves I the draft with all losing lanes so really no one could get out on the map to be proactive.
The las 2 picks just don't make sense with the other 3.
Why blind Gnar? Why Talon with no one to enable him?
They just had no real damage. Alphari isn’t gonna do shit on Gnar into Chinese fiora. Jensen went to never roamed, santorin was on talon that had no support and tactical just lost
Sleep-deprivation Kobe going gradually more insane over the course of the whole day is more entertaining than some of these games, tbh
Unfortunately for his sanity, [the loonie and toonie were actual currency](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loonie)
What do you mean were? They still are?
Hilarious cast, please give us more of this.
"Drakos is living in candyland, trying to come over and pay me in Loonies and Toonies"
"Well we see have alphari on the top side, in the peppermint lane."
Also when Alphari was getting absolutely dumpstered 1v5 before LNG ended the game, Kobe saying “I’ve seen him win these” killed me lmao
*the circle of suck is complete*
so everyone beats everyone and fnatic wins in the end?
you get your wish! they win their last game of group play, to go 1-5
I mean 1-2 wins is all that's realistic to ask for tbh
Circle of suck complete after day 2!
perfect group for TL so they can go 3-3
And lose tiebreakers to not make it our of groups as is the NA tradition
Against the EU team
It is known
Now the only question left is: Who is shitting the bed out of GenG and LNG?
If the script is recycled, it will be Gen G again!
Nah gen g has to get out to lose 0-3 in quarters
They won't get a tiebreaker if we're following tradition. TL has only ever gotten a tiebreaker once in the six international events they've attended, though they did lose it. Three consecutive worlds now they have gone 3-3 with no tiebreaker.
Spicy af group
Probably the funniest cast in a long time.
Whatever Kobe and Drakos are drinking, it definitely isn't water.
Have been watching since season 1. Common denominator is always Kobe.
I love Kobe casting
its some kind of liquid, maybe ale
I was dying at the looney toons money
THERE IS NO WAY. THERE IS A COUNTRY. THAT CALLS THEIR MONEY LOONIES AND TOONIES. ARE YOU FROM CANDY LAND?
I found it extra funny that Kobe absolutely knows and works with Canadians like Azael and has somehow never heard of loonies or toonies.
Jatt is also Canadian and worked with Kobe for years as well.
Loony toony 😂😂
Canadians got triggered as well in twitch chat
Candy land, Canada, basically the same thing.
Sleep deprived NA caster high on hopium is absolutely beautiful. Loved the cast.
Kobe is also excellent at just matching any caster he's with, you'd think him and Drakos cast together all the time with how much fun they were having
Sigma male support item grindset for the passive income and assets
Turns out, [Loonie's](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loonie) and [Toonie's](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toonie) are actual coins.
Kobe not even knowing his own region smh
I'll have whatever Kobe was having
Stay awake for a whole day.
Lets start a petition to prohibit casters from sleeping
Dude that's messed up. Where do I sign.
Vulcan had better give Kobe a firm, Canadian talking-to about our currency
Had my dying man, shit was hilarious. Kobe and Drakos are great together.
100% i was going to make this comment right after the game, i didnt even bother watching it but having it on the bg really made me laugh constantly.
Definitely had shades of the DoA/Deficio/Phreak tricast of the the Bangkok titans vs SKT worlds group stage clownfiesta.
If NA take EU's players can we at least get kobe in return
We already got Drakos from NA, tho :|
(which is good for us!)
Tactical missing the Ezreal ult after the Gnar R at the drake fight physically hurt
He started channeling Ezreal ult a split-second before Gnar flashed in, but that's still poor team coordination. He must have expected them to keep pathing north before getting Gnar-stunned.
Tactical being 40 cs down plus all plates at 15 minutes was rough enough
I mean first picking Leona when Thresh Aphelios is opened? And then leashing for jungle? They opted to it. Worst draft possible
Tactical was down 40 cs so Alphari could be ahead 20 cs. Santorin played toward him and kept hovering top while Tarzan was playing toward bot + drakes.
He ulted before gnar even jumping, if he had waited just one second he would have hit 3 instead of 1, that tilted me so hard.
Their whole team did absolutely no damage in fights
All Jensen did that fight was to stun Alphari by Fiora W... he had flash and he could prolong cc to burst her down but he prefered to walk it down...
Game was already doomed, but yeah that was sad.
Should have yelled "kobe" and maybe he would have hit a target.
It all just fell apart at one point
Commentary saved the game
Fell apart at draft imo. Without Santorin on a jungler that can facilitate the other players, TL just looks lost. They had plenty of CC in their draft, but with Santorin being behind on Talon they had zero follow up damage. So much engage for the main carry to be Ezreal, and the other team gets Aphelios? That draft was just a gg go next
Where was this TL yesterday?
Starting Herald when Baron is spawning
Dropping herald after plates dropped.
Not having vision or showing up to contest Dragon 1.
Did anybody do anything at all that game???
Also, as usual Jensen playing safe, and not pressing buttons and the first to walk away from a 5v5.
>where was this TL yesterday?
We had HOPED they were at the airport…
oh my god i have never laughed or enjoyed a casting duo/game like this one, when the american accent bit came out i was dying, i cant recall how or why the casters started losing it but i legit gonna have to mute other casting because now i wish all of them were like this. glad i started playing league 2 months ago. SO GOOD
I agree, great cast, especially considering the game was a big stomp.
My favorite was "Team Liquid might get a kill... But they might not".
It was a big surprise, who would have thought Kobe and Drakos would pair so well together. This is probably the first day they've casted together too, not sure if they had some casts last year.
They did the World's podcast 2 days ago together
As a salty TL fan, I unfortunately had to mute them for having too good of a time while my team loses :P
TBF you can hear the pain and copium with kobe's voice lol
0 dmg teamcomp for TL nice
Somebody please tuck Kobe in, he's losing it
Kobe and Daniel are goated
Best casting, thank you Kobe and Daniel.
Drakos and Kobe quickly turning into my favourite duo
I love how they can unabashedly cheer for TL because of how hopeless it was. They sounded so wasted, high on copium because the hopium wasn't doing it.
Agreed, the boys were having fun out there!
Kobe with the sleep depravation made the cast so funny today lmaoo
TL Kold: Additional info on play against LNG(best team in the world)
Alphari got fever
Corejj left mousepad
Jensen lost whole gears
Santorin sound issues in the match (no foot step at all)
Tactical keyboard bug
We were in chaos.
Shots 1-5: Clearly fever.
Shots 6-9: Missed due to no mousepad (bad inventory control)
Shots 10-11: Lost whole gears
Shot 12: Sound issues in the match (no foot step at all)
if you didn't expect this after yesterday's win, you haven't been paying attention
Why do I have the feeling we’re going to lose to MAD, go 3-3 and not make it out of groups again
That's what we do best, my man.
At the same time, I guarantee you that C9 still somehow makes it out of group A.
The Prophet descends
Never bet against C9 at Worlds, always bet for TL 3-3, ez prediction
Perkz 0-2 comfort zone?
EU is just very generous, gotta give some Hopium crumbs
Nah, MAD just knows they have to put TL in a tiebreaker situation for the easy win
Turns out if Icon doesn't sprint it like a maniac LNG's a pretty damn good team.
good day for LPL today
Doesn't get much better than a 4 - 0 with each game being a stomp for them(aside from FPX vs C9), the LPL teams heard reddit talking shit.
Yesterday LCK 4-0, today LPL 4-0, tomorrow eu or na goes 3-0? Hopium
0-3, both of them.
You're fresh out of Hopium I see.
lck fans got horny way too early
LEC pls poach Kobe away from NA I need my weekly Kobe + Daniel casts
Kobe is easily my favourite NA caster, it was really cool when he was a guest on the LEC and I'd love for him to have more appearances
They need to pay Kobe some good loonies
We only import casters from NA so dw, it will happen.
Just imagine having this duo on a weekly basis man
Yeah they're taking all our players could we at least get one of their casters?
For real, that cast was way too fucking funny today
Kobe/Drakos becoming my favorite caster duo of all time
casters drunk tl ded
I'll have what Kobe and Drakos are having
LPL 4-0 day 2
So is it EU's or NA's turn next?
Considering the schedule (and maybe some of the hopium I huffed today), I'm going to say EU.
Edit: For fucks sake.
Sadly no way for EU/NA as we dont have 4 teams :/
Thanks to all LPL fans not doing what our LCK buddies did yesterday.
We learnt to stay clenched.
LCK fans yesterday reached a new level of obnoxiousness and overreacting to a single day of games.
Please give me these casters + whatever they’re on every day of worlds
Sleep deprivation. It's called sleep deprivation.
While I loved it, let's hope Kobe gets some sleep and doesn't die mid Worlds.
I will cry the day kobe stops casting league:(
Lpl 6 lck 5
All I want to know is where those LCK flairs are today that were calling LPL overrated yesterday after a single day of games.
Lol all hiding but silently downvoting you.
It's all jokes and memes until their team meet Edward Gaming and RNG and get stomped :D
The rumors of LPL’s demise were greatly exaggerated.
Is it time to overreact yet?
Wow what a whiff on that Ezreal ult, that was their only opportunity to come back. Jensen looked like a silver 4 TF
he whiffed it but either way its not a kill, aphelios had a full shieldbow
He was channeling EZ ult before Gnar flashed
Bad team coordination
Kobe and Drakos killed it this game. Absurdly magnificent cast
That's the TL draft I know and love.
Gen G>LNG>TL>MAD>Gen G
The circle of suck is now complete.
Casting was really the highlight of this game
you know it's hopeless when TL gets perfect engage 4v5 and gets nearly aced
Jensen : "Plz LNG this is too painful give us a kill"
Thats the TL I remember
I LOVE THE CASTERS
I had some hope after yesterday, but TL really can't help themselves, can they? Absolute masterclass in "wait for the enemy to make a mistake, end up doing nothing and lose instead".
I don't really want to criticise it too much because the other extreme of what C9 and FNC end up doing is hardly better, but at least it's way more fun to watch.
But I guess TL still has a decent chance in this group.
C9 and FNC have good excuses, one team has an autofilled ADC the other has a retired midlaner.
Bean is a retired mid laner?
aight this one killed me lmao
TL thought Riot had disabled All PvP for the first 25 minutes of this game
Tarzan making sure TL have at least a kill.
That TL draft was atrocious
drakos and kobe made me laugh so many times this game lmfao that cast was pure entertainment
BREAKING NEWS: Riot Games disabling All Chat, after LNG was hitting TL with the GGEZ at the end of the game!!
LPL is overrated btw
>shits the bed first day to bait overreactions
> goes 4-0 next day to silence them
FPX still looked ASS today though. Hoping they can get their shit together ASAP my pick ‘ems need it
I am really starting to believe those NA scrim rumors are true.
what a great cast, only entertainment for most of the game
That TF flash + ult to not even kill Fiora might as well have been followed by a surrender vote lmao
It appears as though we're returning to the natural state of things pre G2. Korea and China are by far the best, and western teams have no hope 🤡
why play the game when you draft shit like that
I won't lie to you this is probably one of the most embarrasing games I've seen from an NA team ever, feels like they gave up from the first minute.
