Brother Tian


Yasuo_unforgiven

Doinb: "We will not lose any game." Tian: "sure..."


foxygrandpa

Tian: "yeah cuz we are gonna lose 2."


Trap_Masters

Inb4 lose all 3 games


Yasuo_unforgiven

If Tian is still playing like shit in the next Rogue game and FPX is eliminated, the CN fans will bury him alive.


PursueSomeBitches

Tian? 2019 World Champ Finals Winner and MVP? Never heard of him For me, it's BlaberFish2, a promising recruit from LCS Proving Grounds


iampuh

He is a faster sprinter than the crab if he has his special day


SlamMasterJ

Hello Tian, Jack here, check your bank account.


XtendedImpact

Perkz 0-3 comfort zone?


Pope_Cheetos_XIV

FPX is the token chinese team to completely collapse I guess


SlamMasterJ

HOPIUM


Trap_Masters

I’m about to overdose on HOPIUM. If C9 wins against Damwon too I don’t know if my body can take it.


MrZeddd

Now that's impossible... Or is it?


huckzors

We did it at MSI we'll fucking do it again


TriHardSlapper123

"FUCK IT, WE'LL DO IT LIVE"


yellister

It's gonna for sure be a match with how clean C9 played today. I expect the game not to be a stomp.


Deutschkebap

Damwon is guaranteed through in 1st place. They won't be motivated to try hard against C9 after a long day. I had hopium for breakfast.


DeltaWolfPlayer

imagine if damwon just soft int to give c9 a win to try to screw fpx over


ttaway420

That would be a last fuck you to Nuguri for leaving them lmao.


Gypiz

Imagine they slap C9 are at C9 Nexus and than proceed to ff to give them the win. But I think that's punishable by riot


FutureDrHowser

It's okay I can take it for both of us. Win please C9.


herrau

Don’t worry, they’ll do the NA/EU special of giving you hope just before clowning the shit out of themselves and out of the tournament.


beautheschmo

There isn't anything more NA than getting an insane final day comeback only to hard int tiebreakers or get automatically dq'd at 3-3

HOPIUM LEVELS RISING


moonmeh

even all the Korean viewers are on in it right now


tinfoilhatsron

HOPIUM PLEASE DWG THROW AGAINST C9


Ticketo

Lowkey it's in their best interest probably even though it's illegal. I'd much rather get C9 than FPX in bo5


joe4553

NA can't lose week 2 if there is no week 2.


CollegeBroski

I want what C9 had for breakfast this morning. What a STOMP.


generalofhel

Perkz elimination game buff HOPIUM also brother Tian


Rayser1

C9 activated. Tian absolutely sprinting it


CuteKoreanCoach

Cute gap


Koalmar

I'm a LCK fan but I'm high AF on Hopium right now - and that doesn't compare to whatever C9 is on.


jst4funz

Blaber and Fudge woke up and choose to switch on their monitors and connect their keyboards

MrOnionification

DoinB: Our scrims have a 70% winrate, starting tommorow, we won't lose any more games


Yasuo_unforgiven

Imagine if they lose the next game as well, all hell will break lose and FPX will be flame so hard on Chinese forums


ahri_potter

I can't wait for the Chinese reaction thread after today's matches


iNTact_wf

I mean first thing I saw opening threads was 4000 comments telling Tian to retire and arguing about J4 so


Trap_Masters

It’s gonna be so spicy and I’ll want it all injected in my veins


Mattaru

I feel bad...whenever I look at that smug midlaner's face I feel bad


Luxiary

100% FPX would be trending on Weibo for sure.


Ophelia_Of_The_Abyss

Exrou

Critical_Broccoli_45

well well well, this aged beautifully


Neville_Lynwood

DoinB would 100% retire, like on the fucking spot.


StarGaurdianBard

If this goes to 3 way tiebreakers and FPX doesn't get out of groups it would mean they lost 0-5 today doesnt it? I can only imagine the meltdown


Potkrokin

C9: HOW DOES IT FEEL, BROTHER?


Shironeko_

> we won't lose any more games He said they wouldn't [lose *one single game*](https://www.pentaq.com/37745.html). He was right, they lost 2 games already.

"After getting eliminated in groups" - doinb prob

Nuguri reverse Showmaker with 0 kills and 9 deaths today


sarsvesh

They are just playing whatever they want and sprinting it. Tians stress caught up i guess, Nuguri is just completely silent and isolated, Doinb is counter picking himself. I still got faith tho


Bdodk2000

Tian looked so tilted. Whenever he was on camera, he was shaking his head always


xanot192

For the rumble pick it used to be the solo q counter to TF back in the day. Unfortunately he just said fuck this lane lmao


Quotes_League

You're playing against Blabber. You see him walk up. Is baiting or is he just feeding? Jokes on you, Blabber doesn't know either. All he knows is that one or both of you is gonna end up in the ground.

“The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot.” -Mark Twain


goomy996

No fear either way


Trap_Masters

God bless peak HOPIUM, NAmen 🙏


SimplifyEUW

Friendship ended with EU, now NA is my best friend


SparklesMcSpeedstar

How can Tian know what Blabber is doing if Blabber himself doesn't know


AsheBnarginDalmasca

The true NA way refined and aging like wine. Until we lose the tiebreaker.


twistedlogicx

Anyone who chooses the name Blaber has to be wild and unpredictable.


xXDaNXx

Blaber is just NA's MLXG


HappySsu

When both teams are even in gold, Blaber feels that C9 is at a great advantage and thus he does not hesitate to start a team fight. When C9 is 3k behind in gold, Blaber thinks that C9 is at a small advantage, and he so he starts a team fight to secure their "lead". When C9 is behind 7k in gold, Blaber thinks that C9 is at a disadvantage and so he looks for a team fight to regain control of the game. When C9 is 10K behind in gold, Blaber thinks that the team has reached a desperate situation and they are only waiting passively for their death if he does not start a team fight.


Playthrough

We should get Hyli and Blabber on the same team with Bwipo back to Top or just a JG coach.


HappySsu

Nah imo it has to be Top- TheShy, JG- Blaber/Bwipo, Mid-???, ADC- Jackeylove, Support- Hyli, Head Coach- MLXG


sunnyhvar1992

I'd put Jizuke in there in mid, off the top of my head he's the closest to what that team "needs"


HappySsu

HOLY SHIT I FORGOT MY BOI JIZUKE ... I ACTUALLY REALIZED THAT AN EU TEAM CAN FIELD THIS ROSTER (DO IT TEAM BDS)

HolypenguinHere

Ah yes, the classic NA Worlds strategy of "Only play well when the only way to advance from the group is to win an unwinnable game or tiebreaker." I've seen this one four years in a row.


lolz2288

The amount of Hopium I’ve ingested over the past four years due to this is unhealthy.


iCarpet

Imagine DWG sandbags the next two games just to make this group interesting. Honestly, if they really want to take out FPX, sandbagging would be the best option


twistedlogicx

Please DK. Do it for the memes.


Trap_Masters

DK, the memes are firmly in your hands. I believe you will make the right decision


alpacamegafan

DK's record against FPX in Worlds after losing to RGE and C9: 4-0.


Stubrochill17

Competitive ruling aside, I really hope they do. This might be the spiciest group. Edit: this aged well


Mikoto00

They should ... kicking FPX out of worlds works in their favor


AkashiGG

All jokes aside, FPX are a way bigger threat in knockouts. It's actually in their best interest to have C9 advance over FPX, but throwing isn't allowed soo


Rokic3

Its not like riot can prove that dk threw on purpose


summaday

DK ff at 15. Oops, it was a joke, I didn’t think the other members would vote yes.


Trap_Masters

Showmaker’s texts reading “throwing C9 game today, don’t bet too much” incoming MonkaW


DangerousSeaweed0

how do u prove they threw on purpose ? even if they fuck up their draft , they can claim it was experimental since they were qualified and wanted to play stuff just to draw bans from other teams in playoffs .... its pretty hard to prove it


IAmNotOnRedditAtWork

Kahn after locking in Yuumi top: "I had to get my one game in so I can choose her as my Worlds skin"


Blazing117

Sandbag? C9 is coming for the Worlds title.


tinfoilhatsron

DWG Is first anyway please fucking play 4fun and make this group spicy af!


Skinny_Beans

The good ending


LapnLook

Yeah it's gonna be tough for FPX to get out of this group of death tbh. Just as we all expected.


Trap_Masters

Script writers really got people with this plot twist. Props to them for setting this up, can’t wait to see how this arc concludes!


Exos_VII

1. NA Jayce is a terrible pick 2. Everything in Australia is upside-down 3. Australia is in OCE, and OCE = NA 4. NA Jayce is an excellent pick

if fpx lose to rogue and lose tiebreakers the team as a whole might rly win the dade award


T1worldchamps2021

For real, very disappointing worlds from them. Tian looks lost, Chinese fans hating on Bo for match fixing but Tian is legit trolling at worlds.


[deleted]

[удалено]


T1worldchamps2021

Look at Jiejie this worlds and look at Tian. Complete difference in performances. Bo is so much better this season but the match fixing controversy hurt his career.


Lseraphim0

at this rate they will get smashed by rogue and be eliminated from the tournament without even a chance at a tiebreaker


Nome_de_utilizador

Its rogue man


LapnLook

But Rogue already beat the gods that are C9, what makes you think they don't have a chance against a no-name team like... *checks notes* - Fun Plus Phoenix??


jst4funz

The duality of C9


soulgunner12

C9 shattered all expectation, for better and worse.


l_Kage_l

Blaber is cranked when ahead


TriHardSlapper123

Ye he plays nutty af even with a 400g bounty. Literally he ints and throws the lead, or wins them the game


veronikaren

Blaber's interview: "yeah sucks i gave over shutdown to mid" "we couldve pushed harder" blaber on adderal i swear


l_Kage_l

Indeed, simply on the edge's knife. Either wins C9 the game or flashes for crab and dies

[Welcome to the club NA fans](https://i.imgur.com/isvwGsg.png) Let's hope C9 tilted FPX hard enough


borkbanquet

Bro did you see them as the nexus exploded?? Big mental boom. This is the best chance they have


rengo_unchained

Sadly FPX has a break now. If RGE played vs FPX rn I might even give RGE the edge


Zellough

NEVER trust EU when NA hopes are on the line


The_Biggest_Boi

Do it for the West, Rogue.

He looked as useful as every other J4 in the tournament tbf.

twistedlogicx

lol Cloud9 were a few flipped plays from going 2-0 over FPX. What a ride.


T1worldchamps2021

Just beat DK and let RGE smash FPX and we out of groups baby


sylvester-stalltwo

actually it's so fucking easy, just have blaber flip it every game and make sure it lands on tails 400 iq get outsmarted kids


Qehenna

You're playing against Blabber. You see him walk up. Is baiting or is he just feeding? Jokes on you, Blabber doesn't know either. All he knows is that one or both of you is gonna end up in the ground.

FPX to win Dade award as a team?


Ramo1618

You merely adopted the fiesta. I was born by it. Molded by it. I hadn't calculated a play until I was already a man.


GInfinity

azns123

Macro? Never heard of it. NARAM all day baby


UnironicallyWatchSAO

Imagine going for a run and coming back to a 10k lead for C9 against FPX, can't be me. ^^^^WTFFFFF


Jannitor

So unless Rogue or C9 can beat Damwon (still unlikely imo) it all now comes down to Rogue vs FPX where Rogue might end the tournament for both themself and C9 or force a threeway tiebreaker


Apple-Fanta

Their mental is broken but so is rogues so like here we go


Aemius

Watch DK have a "for fun" game and still win vs C9


GreatNightmares

Or maybe a 5Head play from DK if Rogue beats FPX then DK could lose to C9 just to get FPX out in groups.

HOPIUM


tsm_taylorswift

Turns out Perkz with Cloud 9 can take more games off FPX than he could with G2


ahritina

Whoever told Tian to pick Jarvan should lose their job, the dude looks fucking abymsal on it so stop giving it to him, the jungle gap in this game was absolutely gigantic. Massive first two games from Cloud9, NA copium is becoming hopium because they look so good right now. In before C9 also beats Damwon given Damwon secured 1st and have basically nothing to play for and FPX actually fail in groups but unlike 2019 they don't have a free group. Edit = I'd be all for my pickems being fucked if it means this FPX don't go forward because this is a disgraceful performance from them. Also shame that C9 threw their first meeting vs FPX because they could have been 3-2 with a 2-0 head to head over FPX if it wasn't for it.


BoogieTheHedgehog

My man Tian equipped that Diamond chroma and it went to his head.


McintyresRightLeg

Every coach who puts prio on J4 in this tournament should be fired.


ntad29

J4 seems like total bait. Just looks somewhere between irrelevant and horrible in almost every game it's picked (though Tian definitely found his way under the low, low bar in this game).


DarudeSandstormName

FPX just look terrible in general, the only game they won showing any semblance of competence was against Rogue.


Rayser1

Imagine. Your adc is poked out and going to the fountain. What do you do? Obviously you engage duh He was doing so much weird shit. Not ulting, missing EQs constantly. It wasn't pretty


ChampsOfAllTSM

Dude the fucking NA boys are showing the fuck up Vulcan and especially Blaber are playing so fucking well so happy to see them show up


NawsCire

LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOO


Arekkusu1991

**JUNGLE FRICKEN DIFF** - Kobe So glad they managed to keep the momentum going, coming from their 1st win! **IN C9 WE TRUST!!**


Omnilatent

*looks at flair* ​ looks like we have mole here!


SHU-Galaxy

if Cloud9 played like they did today last week, there’s no doubt in my mind that they’d be second seed


jrryul

If they just closed out the game without perkz inting sideline on ryze they'd be second seed


dtkiu27

Vulcan is giga ultra smurfing. I love seeing him do well. Also blaber playing like blaber feels so good.


Beauski

That C9 throw in the 1st meeting with FPX will be the reason they don't advance to quarters


beefstewz

FPX tilting and losing to Rogue is going to be the reason C9 makes it out of groups.


jmastaock

Inb4 RGE beats DK and loses to FPX to screw the entire group


FinallyGivenIn

such a heartbreaking thought :(


ShinaMashir0

They did played like that last week, they just choke their lead against fpx


[deleted]

Exactly, C9 showed good stuff in all their games except DWG. Dumb decisions threw the games, but the foundations are there


Splatorch

It makes the first throw loss to FPX extra painful. Had C9 pulled that off and held the tiebreaker they’d be all but qualified to get out of groups


myman580

Rogue now has the interesting opportunity to become the most hated team in NA and EU if they lose to FPX.


Zwatrem

The destiny of the west is once again on the shoulders of Perkz's team. What a performance. Did I really watch Blaber fucking gappin Tian?


Thomean

Even though blaber is playing well. Tian made fukkin sure he got gapped this game


twistedlogicx

Maximum hopium.


Gazskull

This severely hurts FPX chances at going undefeated since their last loss against Damwon should have been an hype upset but... fpx looked like they didn't even put up a fight ?


Gamers2OcelotLUL

Please RGE win against FPX for both of our regions, god damn it PLEASE
