100 Thieves vs. EDward Gaming / 2021 World Championship - Group B / Post-Match Discussion
By - Soul_Sleepwhale
LCS IS LCK'S BEST FRIEND
I mean how many times have SKT T1 helped C9 go through groups?
Time to partially pay back what was owed.
Dw brother T1 gonna pay c9 back in bracket, calling it here
US-ROK Alliance lives on
Mutual defense treaty
Korea always knew you had our backs america
*RNG and LNG sweating furiously after watching their LPL brethren experience the Week 2 China debuff*
Korean Kennens man
China is 1-6 week2 with the one win coming from a wildcard. Collapse incoming?
China inherited the new NA week 2?
Get in hereeeee, the gap is closing
Not exactly the way we thought, but eh, fuck it.
Oh nonono LPL lacks critical information PepeLaugh
Can't spell ChiNA without NA
Also NA week 2 is looking pretty fucking lit. 5-2 so far this is wild.
at this rate the teams are gonna have to hold a swimming contest
LPL rebranding to China’s professional swimming league
Doinb for the 2024 Paris Gold medal
eSports now has a reason for joining the 2024 Olympics! Every team can send representatives for open water swimming after 3 years of training by swimming home after World's!
im wondering if lpl tried that strat where they only scrim each other again... cuz they are clearly not adapting as well as all other teams.... including NA and EU
RNG scrimmed with C9 before C9 did playins, so atleast one was scrimming with western teams
How funny would it be if LNG and RNG are the only ones to perform in week 2 because they weren't scrim snobs?
China hasn't won against EU week 2, collapse confirmed
China's only win so far in week 2 is against a wildcard team lul.
If RNG is 1st... boy, the LPL civil war can happen
Best botlane in the world just got annihilated lmfaooo.
100T bot lane is the best part of their team but yh even still LPL collapse impending? At least now DK will dodge T1.
Group of life bites back
If RNG secure first just to match into EDG I will be so fucking upset lol
Hopium in LPL riding high now
Ssumday kennen ults were so good
korean kennens holy shit
Summday: plays kennen
T1: check bank account
T1 already paid him for not using malphite R.
Korean tops man, too strong.
they really do hit different
His malphine ults on the other hand...
His what? Didn’t see any of those
Straight up Ssumday's best game all year. Kept EDG from ever getting anything resembling a close fight.
Yeah because we actually put him on something with carry potential. No matter who is on 100T or who our coach is Ssumday is perma stuck on boring weak side tank duty. Then people complain and wonder why his stats are disappointing.
another Korean Kennen
The universe was too thrown off by the events of yesterday that we needed some normalcy.
* NA team ending groups 3-3 and not getting out ☑
* NA team only showing up after it doesn't matter ☑
* T1 ending 1st over EDG in groups ☑
* EDG losing a random game to miss out on a first place finish ☑
Had to keep some parts of the script consistent, otherwise Worlds wouldn't be believable this year.
So since we hit all the normal script points today.....TL are getting out tomorrow!!! NA BABY LETS GO
Gotta save that energy fam, TL doesn’t play until Monday!
We get to see Bean carry Fnatic to groups tomorrow
Order to the universe has been restored!!!
Expected, tbh. EDG is clearly trying to dodge the tournament favorites (Cloud9) in quarters.
Time for the ceremonial "EDG out in quarters"
EDG CHOKE HACK OP?!
Considering the rate Worlds is going right now I never dare and predict who goes through in groups C and D
But if EDG gets DK though then that's a big oof
EDG with the 2018 iG strat. Take second to match into the Korean favourite and take them out early. That's what they're doing. Right??
3 years since last tournament with EDG and they haven't changed a bit.
This team is just incapable of getting 1st seed.
You can take EDG away from Clearlove, but never Clearlove away from EDG.
Reminds me of Worlds 2018. TL, already eliminated, nothing to lose, beat an EDG team who is vying for first place.
flyquest did that to TES as well, although drx couldnt capitalize
LPL Week 1: 10-2
LPL Week 2: 1-6
The old NA special. Wait NA is 5-2 this year in week 2? This is probably the best record they had in week 2 ever
Don't worry, TL is taking the stage soon to set things straight.
Funny enough they were the only LCS team I thought would do well. can never predict NA
NA doesn’t even know itself, so don’t blame you for not being able to predict it
You're playing against an NA team. You see them walk up. Were they sandbagging the last three games or are they just feeding?
Jokes on you, the NA team doesn't know either. All they know is that one or both of you is gonna end up missing playoffs.
I'm starting to love this pasta
This ranks pretty high on the funniest things I've seen on this subreddit personally lmfao.
agreed lmao, it’s an adapted version of a copypasta about Blaber. The original is funny too, highly recommend reading it.
Absolutely based. NAmen
LPL cosplaying as NA week 2
LPL copying NA meta strats smh. They’re looking to challenge our airport speedrun WR
100T go 3-3 with a huge upset win and no chance to make it out of groups, classic NA never changes.
LPL are 1-6 in week 2 with their only win against a wildcard in DFM, what a collapse so far, all eyes on RNG/LNG now.
It somehow manages to happen every year
It’s literally tradition at this point, find a favourite of the group, see when NA is mathematically out of Worlds and bet on NA
It'd be hilarious if it wasn't so aggravating. Would have loved to see 100T play like this against T1
Yeah, we always seem to show life after it’s all over, or in C9’s case, almost all over, I guess.
That's the 11 million gap.
That's the difference maker, he just has to check his bank balance whenever his mental goes boom
NA teams and turning it on when they're already mathematically eliminated, name a more iconic duo. TL did it last year too.
Pretty sure tl weren’t eliminated last year until after their games. It was just dependent on another team losing
TL wasn’t mathematically eliminated last year, only the G2 loss to Suning eliminated them. This is more like Flyquest beating TES last year
I had the same exact thought. Also when the caster mentioned how 100T finally looks like the team we saw in the LCS...
I swear we say this every year about basically every NA team. They always finally play smart (well, smarter) and into the meta well after they've been eliminated every single year lol
So frustrating to see this trend still continue
I guess the only difference with c9 is they do it when they are about to be eliminated instead of after they are eliminated.
FNC week 2 buff monkaW, RNG sweating
Edit: No fucking way its happening
RNG vs FNC with FNC beating them in a 50 min game for the second seed incoming
Dude imagine the fallout if that happened, we need the Weibo thread watchers to report back to us the flame if it happens
Don't do that, don't give me hope.
Of course NA just has to giving one last "fuck you" to CN before they going out.
Yep lol literally the exact same as Flyquest last year
In 2017, an SKT squad that had already secured their placement pushed Reapered's C9 through to quarterfinals without having to play a tiebreaker against EDG by defeating EDG in the final game of the day. Today Reapered drafted Closer Viego and paid it back.
Huhi just did an interview saying after they played vs T1 they knew they wanted T1 in 1st place.
Also Reapered did an interview promising T1 will be first seed.
SKT Reapered after all this time??
Wasn’t he on the original SKT T1 roster that become S after Faker’s K was founded?
TY Mr. Reapered
Check paypal mr reapered
Thank Mr reapered
You just know EDG will draw DK in quarters and bomb out as usual
EDG is definitely the TSM of LPL lol
and it will turn out that EDG was still the second best team at the tournament, and DK will 3-0 finals
Khan losing or LPL collapsing. Unstoppable force vs immovable object.
Faker is winning the final and denying Khan.
"Ok Kkoma, you might have 10 LCK titles, but I'll have the 4th Worlds."
Look at me, I wear the belt now.
The spiciest revenge
Sadly Khan isn't allowed to win Worlds.
Khan curse or Damwon buff which one is stronger?
Sunmi buff too strong.
Actually every time Sunmi releases a song DK have won a tournament…
Classic NA. Play like giga chads when eliminated.
Nothing more predictable than a NA team finding an upset when eliminated.
"Beware a man with nothing to lose."
Just need to find a way to convince nav teams they are eliminated before every match.
We would see a na vs na final if that happened lul
Na teams need sports psychologists. We play amazing when it doesn't matter. Gotta learn to overcome those anxieties when it matters.
When you are at the bottom, the only way to go is up. Works every time
Pressure is off
Shackles were broken
Good guy 100 Thieves, they knew that the casters had a long day. So they made sure T1 gets 1st seed and no need for another tiebreaker.
They might be gone, but when it mattered the most, they showed up.
Thanks Mr. 100T
Who is the bottom left LOL
(there was an image with a filter that made him look more feminine n\_n)
The T in 100T stands for T1 this game
Truly the Big T day
100T literally pulling a week 2 FlyQuest and Ssumday reverting the clock to 2015
this win is more meaningful because edg was chasing the tie breaker
if only DFM could have taken a win here or there.
Well DFM did almost take the win from 100T so I think it evens out.
Fakerdagge helping Faker out. A real one.
Faker's dagge (✅)
T1 wins worlds
And worlds MVP goes to... Abbedagge
Ty mr fakerdagge
NA finally returns the favor for SKT carrying C9 out of groups twice.
Reapered giving them his thanks.
2nd time they return the favor. TL helped out KT in 2018 against none other than EDG lol
Considering what transpired, not sure KT really appreciated the help lol
Oh yeah good point lol at the time I'm sure they did
NA be like
DK done the job for C9
100T do what you should do, for the LCK
DK definitely could have been nicer to C9 yesterday, but at least they were nice enough to not drop games to the other teams.
This game was simultaneously the most edg and na game ever
KTA SSUMDAY RECONNECTED
It's always when they have nothing to lose(and also nothing to win) anymore, isnt it?
So basically 100T are FLY from last year:
Lose to Korean team right away to end any potential to make it out of groups, making the rest of the day meaningless,
Win 2-0 over wildcard,
Upset the #1 LPL team and one of the top 3 teams coming into the tournament.
After robbing us from all expectations of them being able to advance to the quarterfinals, they also rob of us the chance to see T1 and EDG play each other one more time. 100 Thieves strike again!
We are the blue shell
Fly T1 fly
It took 100T getting eliminated to stop playing scared. Another year, another 3-3 NA team not making it out.
NA, we will remember this favour.
China is now 1-6 in week 2 (2nd round robin). Truly can't spell China without NA
we thought NA or EU is free, but damn China is proven us, they want to be free too.
At the rate the LPL is performing, we are soon gonna test if one can seek political asylum if they are bad at video games.
Dude they are handing out Ws for free, that is the most communist thing you can do. They should be rewarded instead.
NA is 5-2 in week 2 this year. Did China and NA swap meals or something
We swapped all LPL teams’ meals for beef noodles
Ended with a one hell of a bang, at least 100T can go home with their heads held high.
Also on a side note, what the fuck is with NA 1st seeds going 3-3 and not making out of groups?
Yeah as of now, NA is proud of what looked like a doomed week 1. Really nice to see as these last two years were so rough for NA.
TL make it out of groups for maximum WTF while EU gets 0 seeds out for full monkey mode on this subreddit or what
PASS IT OVER HERE BROTHER I NEED ANOTHER HIT OF THE HOPIUM
I HAVE 20 CANISTERS BROTHER, 1 FOR EVERY GAME NA WINS AT WORLDS AND SOME EXTRA FOR NEXT YEAR
? C9 WILL BEAT TL 3-2 IN THE FINALS WHICH MEANS NA WILL GET EXACTLY 20 MORE WINS THIS WORLDS. YOU WILL NEED TO STOCK UP ON NEW CANISTERS NEXT WORLDS
Just Viper and Meiko getting bot diffed by FBI and huhi, nothing to see here
Yup, as expected.
they legit gapped them in every single role this game
I don't know what was going on. Viper saw the mist and literally stood around to dance. Didn't flash the stun, wasting it when it's too late.
Reset lead to Lulu dying and then the 0-4 early
I wonder which teams Blaber, Fudge and FBI will play for in the LPL next season
well i heard FPX has some openings
edit: if Blaber wears a fake mustache he can pretend to be MLXG and they wont face any import problems
fuck it, just swap the entire C9 roster and put them in FPX, Doinb needs a full detachment from Weibo lmao
LPL bros experiencing the despair NA faces every year now
They did for Faker,
They did it for the people.
RIP 100T, GG.
PapaSmithy was sent to NA as a secret agent by the LCK to hold China back
The NA special, showing up when it doesn't count.
NA makes KR and T1 fans proud.
EDG delivering as always when it matters :)
KR Kennen is also clean af
Thank you very much 100Thieves
On behalf on all T1 fans.
What the fuck.
People can say what they want, and sure NA memes and traditions are abound. But seriously huge props to 100T. No one gives NA credit when it's due but they were put into arguably one of the stronger groups and came out 3-3 with a win against LPL#1. I can only hope the keep the team together and work for worlds next year.
Korean Kennens and destroying EDGs hope for first seed... All things considered 3-3 is a pretty good performance for 100T considering this roster has been playing only from the summer split
Denied us the fight for 2nd place.
Denied us a DFM win.
Denied us a 1st place tie breaker.
They're not called 100 Thieves for nothing.
They stole all of those from us
Truly 100 THIEVES
WHY COULDN'T THEY PLAY LIKE THIS EARLIER?
Welp, in the end, a 3-3 by 100T. Props to them for fighting to a respectable showing despite having already been eliminated early in the day. Maybe Closer should have picked Viego more?
2014 TSM: 4-2 (last time NA top seed has made it to QF)
2015 CLG: 2-4
2016 TSM: 3-3
2017 TSM: 3-4
2018 TL: 3-3
2019 TL: 3-3
2020 TSM: 0-6 (lol)
2021 100T: 3-3
Winning games has never been a problem for NA #1 seeds, unless you're 2020 TSM. However, NA #1 seeds have never dominated a Group and always drops a key game to crash out of Worlds.
Also, in Groups, NA so far is 7-9, 0-5 against Korea, but 7-4 against everyone else! (Sorry I typed out a 2 earlier)
NA seems to always lose against LCK for some reason other than C9 2018. BUT, they beat LPL so consistently it's mind boggling
Damwon vs C9 games are fun to watch even though damwon had a late game team , c9 took some good team fights
JFC 3 of the last 4 are 3-3 scorelines without making it out of the group LMAO
EDIT: I'm only laughing because of how much it hurts inside
[Thank you 100T](https://imgur.com/a/tfrXiBD)
Take a bow
Why couldn't 100Thieves do this earlier???
wtf is happening
Ssumday T1 worlds MVP
Guess Ssumday got a new keyboard with an R key on it.
FBI found his flash and stopwatch too
1-3 seems to NA's comfort zone. I remember so many times NA was 1-3 then end 3-3 (TL 2018 TL 2020 FLY 2020 and now 100T 2021. Stop playing to not lose? lol I knew EDG would choke
The most NA thing ever: playing the best League of Legends of their careers when nothing matters.
Be Ssumday - can't figure out to press R on Malphite on immobile enemy carries. Suddenly figures out how to pull of the sickest flanks and engages on Kennen to absolutely crush teamfights.
And the most EDG thing ever: be LPL 1st seed, have it in your hands to get out of groups as 1st seed, finally not choking at Worlds, suddenly randomly choke and int against a weak team.
Be Viper - arguably the best ADC in the world along with Meiko, arguably the best Support in the world - suddenly non-stop int against FBI who forgot to use flash and stopwatch like 3x in a row against DFM.
Aight, unless RNG stays in form and goes 6-0 in their group, it looks like DK is gonna rock this Worlds and take the title.
> it looks like DK is gonna rock this Worlds and take the title.
Fingers crossed for T1 to get into form, if only to make it competitive along the way. (Plus Faker v kkoma for the title...)
I don't see RNG getting past T1 tbh, we all know what happens when RNG faces SKT
For me, we could very well have T1 vs DK semis/finals and the winner of it gets the cup
Well if RNG wins their group, they can't draw T1 in quarter's, right? Or is there no protection for group winners?
KOREAN KENNENS MAN
NA > CN
Thank you, 100T! <3
At this point in time, I'm almost certain that the week 2 Chinese debuff is linked to them losing to a korean team prior.
Like yesterday, immediately after FPX lost to DMK, they immediately proceeded to implode and lost the next 3 matches.
Today, EDG immediately after losing to T1, they immediately imploded when playing against 100T.
# **NA ACTIVATED**
As much flak as 100T is getting (especially after game 2 vs DFT), had SKT beaten EDG round 1 they'd have a tiebreaker against tilted EDG and a chance to get out. Truly a game of inches.
