What is it with Nautilus and 7 deaths this tournament Lmao


kelvin022610

It's the beryl effect


azns123

Locking in naut is just a cover so they can play Genshin


veilsofrealitydotcom

Wouldn't it be better to lock in yuumi?


CommunistHongKong

Beryl will tell you it's then Genshin impact effect. China cheating by creating Genshin to addict other countries top MOBA players to worsen their skills. GENSHIN IMPACT 英雄联盟 CHINA中国 CHEAT HACK???


[deleted]

Man just wrote genshin impact league of legends china china cheat hack lmao


ImTheVayne

I mean wildcards are the only ones who keep picking it so naut will look really bad for a while


PentaQ2021

Yea why still Nautilus


Sondeor

What else can they pick? Going an ap support is literally a death sentence against rng or other major region teams since they are clearly way better, and also AP sup can be punished too easy. 1 early dive and the game is over. They are gonna pick either leona or nautilus.


IHadThatUsername

I mean there's A LOT of options for tanky supports other than Leona or Nautilus. Braum and Alistar have literally been played multiple times in this tournament already. Thresh and Sett have been very popular supports recently, so I'd bet on them getting picked this tournament at some point as well. And then on top of that you have a boatload of niche yet standard picks like Blitzcrank, Maokai, Gragas, Galio, Tahm Kench, Jarvan IV, Rell, Shen, Taric... I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of these get picked here and there as specific counters.


Elidot

Its an improvement from the usual 8 the other days


DetectiveViko

At this point I'm starting to believe that the players are conspiring and are asking riot for Nautilus buffs


[deleted]

I knew it was over once Naut was locked in.... but that bot diff was Titanic


azns123

He’s just trying to claim the title of ‘worst Nautilus’ from Farfetch


Pyro636

Hey now, Corporal is working really hard for it too


SirSharkPlantagenet

This game felt like RNG was playing 12.10 but dealing 12.9 damage and the reverse was true for RED


TCaller

Agreed. They’re definitely cheating by using some sort of software to tweak in-game stats. Their damage looked unreal to me as well. Riot please do something.


Faye_Dragon

I zoomed in during draft when camera show RNG room I saw Ming typed WhosYourDaddy and ISeeDeadPeople on his client


SorrowStyles

I also saw him type peperonipizza, and pick up a controller and went Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start.


[deleted]

I'm pretty sure I saw Xiaohu type IDDQD at the start of the game


neimengu

I swear I saw Bin type "how do you turn this on" and then a blue cobra car zoomed across the screen.


Pandar0ll

Don’t forget Thereisnospoon


firechicken188

Allyourbasearebelongtous Greedisgood1000000


hfz2017

Lollllll I can’t even tell if this is a joke or not


LazerFruit

Its definitely a joke


Leyrann_is_taken

It kinda makes me think of a sanitized version of that one copypasta, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Pretty sure there's a bunch of matching words. Not a copypasta expert though.


Vegetable-Chemistry9

Had to be those headsets


Willingness-Virtual

RNG skilled team but that is not normally, This very very insane....They need to check them pc and game.....Maybe they not cheating but maybe they using the game deficit ...and this cant seem on game screen..They needs to check-up....RNG using game deficit on PRO scene ,ON BIG Events. Maybe everyone dont knows them trick.They incredible....I want to ask them where is the comming of your skill's ?


bensanelian

Schrödingers GALA: At any given moment, GALA will be both the worst and the best player in a game at the same time.


obigespritzt

When GALA E's forward on Lucian he wins a team the game.


Wurdox

I thought you were going the say "When ~~Rekkles~~ Gala ~~jumps~~ E's forward with ~~Tristana~~ Lucian the clock truly stops ticking"


obigespritzt

I wanted to but that felt so long ago I wasn't sure how many people would get it. Caps was still on Fnatic!


Leyrann_is_taken

That moment when you realize Caps has played in more than half of all EU LCS/LEC splits that there have ever been.


emperornel

RNG looked like they were having fun, nice penta from Gala. Thanks for MSI drop. Can't wait for SKT vs RNG next Rumble stage


soxdye9

RNG all going through the hexgates at the same time was pretty cute


SorrowStyles

They became a meme on Chinese internet yesterday when they hexgate as 5 against PSG. People call it the Baby Bus service because they line up and hexgate one by one like well mannered children. They're just memeing today by hex gating together. Fan service of sort


Melodic_Time2608

RNG: rift bus go brrrr KR Crowd: *silence* 😠


thvsbin

It looks like they are having fun :) they even wait for bin, yesterday he was left behind lmao.


SoCalledNick

They really denied the penta


haohanchun

well, that was one of the most silent pentakills I have ever seen/heard


Lin_Huichi

LCK casters are not used to screaming GALA but Valdes tried.


Amiti94

Yeah, Korean casters are well known to be quite silent with their casting /s But true, at least Valdes tried.


SpyFromMars

Koreans casters are some of the best, crowd? Not so much


Megashot2

To be fair all asian crowds are like this. They're the best for regional vs regional, but when its for another country, they don't give a shit and have the mindset "why should I have to cheer for them?"


Teut0burg

The only time they made a noise was when RED got a shutdown lmao.


AlkaidX139

They also made a noise when RED stole red


7hideyoshi

thought they were playing in library or funeral home


SpyFromMars

Remember people in Wuhan gave Perkz loudest applaud even though he said he was gonna make them into Wuhan library


Jareddarkness

busan library


william9537

more like bushan morgue


hurrdurrlul

Remember when Koreans were complaining about China not giving LCK any applause during Worlds 2020? Well, turns out they are just the same lmao.


Environmental_Map407

https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1Ji4y1L7Vw?spm\_id\_from=333.337.search-card.all.click


DoorHingesKill

Korea'a excuse is that they can't cheer cause the ticket holders don't arrive before T1 plays.


CommunistHongKong

Tbf they did mention soundmixing was a problem. But lmao idk if they can claim it here because we all heard RED cheers but not RNGs ones


Mogician_

given the huge number of lck fans in china, i dont believe theres no noise when lck teams make plays. People wont believe how many lck fangirls there are in china simply because they are korean


AndlenaRaines

Actual hypocrites


MarxistPigeon

Koreans has to be the worst crowd we have seen I miss the French crowd that cheered for every team and made the tournament banger


SorrowStyles

The French crowd was amazing... Was it MSI 2018? I don't remember which event it was


Heixenium

It was, the best possible place for uzi's first international trophy. And of course 2019 worlds, banger


hurzinator

i think groupstage 2015 and some other worlds in EU


DRNbw

Finals 2019 also.


ahmeclaw

Worlds 2019 Finals


william9537

Yes, it was MSI 2018, in Paris.


opaidetodos1

yeah that french crowd was fucking good


moipaslui

A fairest comparison would be the German studio crowd considering it's about the same size. But yeah, even compared to the German or Chinese crowd, the KR crowd genuinely sucks. And the fact that there's barely anyone in the crowd when T1 isn't playing is utterly ridiculous.


L4r13n

The worst crowd no doubt was the NA crowd in 2016, remember when ssg was against c9 and they just booed to them in the presentation of the team.


SilenceOfRage

Korean crownd is a disapointment, I felt chinese crownd was way more alive and respectful even in their loss. World is at NA this year right? Honestly I am glad


Megashot2

America is not much more friendlier towards China than Korea lol


opaidetodos1

yeah but at least you will have a lot of RNG fans there simply because the chinese population in NA is huge


Amiti94

True, it gets countered by the huge amount of Chinese Americans that are over there. Even their pros have ancestors from China, like Doublelift, whose parents are from Shanghai, I think. I remember when I was in college almost all the US exchange students I met where second gen Chineses haha


votet

Nah, can't believe I'm saying this as a EU fan, but NA fans have been pretty cool at events in recent years that I recall, both in League and other esports.


Megashot2

It’s been a while since they’ve hosted an event but last time I remembered they consistently chanted USA and booed Samsung. TBH the wild card regions have the best crowd, they cheer for anyone


Quitchy

France, Spain, and Brazil, these are where you want your tournaments for crowds.


Megashot2

Allstar Paris was crazy. The atmosphere was amazing


Yubisaki_Milk_Tea

Other than when they boo’d SSG.


Landox118

Yeah NA fans are really nice. They always cheer a lot.


bananazee

Yeah I think NA fans will be awesome regardless


chrium76

Man that was funny when Draven got first blood and I heard applause in the audience. But at the moment that gala got his penta then was dead silence.


william9537

Korean Library I guess


Melodic_Time2608

KR library vibes


Micymint

Absolutely enjoyed the 02 world cup lol


JustSocrates

That WC tilts me to this day


kkpoker

that world cup was a full bullshit. FUCK the referees


[deleted]

[удалено]


SpyFromMars

Italian never forget.


idontgiveaseat

Hello there Italian


ImTheVayne

Lol GALA was about to get his 2nd penta there


Yasuo_unforgiven

Would have been a record for sure.


limito1

He heard the Challenges were patched in


icatsouki

he had stopwatch too i think no?


Mogician_

is rng the rumored lucian team that smurfed the scrims?


Yubisaki_Milk_Tea

Xiaohu and Gala play Lucian to a world class level. Bin is no slouch either .It was one of Xiaohu’s staples and a permaban vs RNG in 2021, when Xiaohu was making a case for being the best toplaner in the world in his first split after switching. I could believe that.


Rawdream

Previous year, Xiaohu lost with Lucian for the 1st and only time in that WC Quarterfinal against EDG.


[deleted]

Can’t wait for the triple flex Lucian


LICKING_AHRIs_FEET

The iG special


JPA-3

what's the rumor?


Mogician_

some team smurfed everyone with luc nami. then other teams started banning nami but they still pick luc but put him mid and the luc mid was super good too


lol1009

Yeah Xiahou is undoubtedly the best solo lane lucain player. He looked like the best toplaner in the world in 2021 if he got that pick


BoogieTheHedgehog

Man RNG seem like they give you a few minutes to try and then just bulldoze their way to victory. Will be interesting to see them match up against T1.


Mogician_

that was how they won the finals. tes casually lose from 4-5k gold lead


thvsbin

Multiple times at that. Both Bo5 with TES was them winning early game until RNG decided to take the game back from them with their macro and teamfights.


LordsGrim

If u can’t crush rng in early game, you are doomed


melonpan12

big brain turning off cams so TES can play the early game then swap in the real RNG players for the mid/late game


Cake_is_Great

Ngl RED is pretty good, put up most convincing fight against RNG in the group. CBLOL has a pretty decent chance to get out.


Arnotts_shapes

I really respect the early plays, they came in with a solid plan to attack Wei in the early game, which usually ruins RNG.


Patrius

That had to have been Gala’s easiest penta of his career


Yubisaki_Milk_Tea

Ty Gala for my first drop of the tourney


Teut0burg

He had his flash up in like 5 seconds, would've been a 2nd penta right at the end.


Heixenium

He also had stop watch ready, shame


Clueless_hmm

now i join the RNG haters because Gala denied my 2nd drop /s


Heixenium

I blame selfmade


Amiti94

TY, Mr. Gala


Grand_Sock

[Getting some alterations to the "open mind" tattoo after this one](https://i.imgur.com/Gu4edg8.png)


El_Biggu

how was gala behind early but still doing that damage is beyond my comprehension.


jetlagging1

Nami E


Scrub4LIfe734

Plus Nami electrocute. Lucian has so much burst because of her.


JustSocrates

Well, that was a stomp...


AbsoluteParadox

At this point, might as well default RNG and T1 for their respective groups and have the rest play it out to speed up to the the BO3 series that most care about.


Obelisk00

Gala farming challenges that game.


AFierceBaby

RED had a nice try in the early game but RNG is just too good.


Mogician_

how come people dont ban luc on red side? at least go samira


AFierceBaby

My guess is RED think they can deny the power of Lucian with a Draven+first blood advantage. And they did execute a beautiful lvl 1 setup to get that first blood.


Amiti94

RED is an amazing team. I really like how proactive they are.


Pentragos

Nautilus is the Ryze of support champs...please just pick something else 💀 .


isolate-MM

Maybe someone blame RNG&LPL, but Busan morgue confirmed😇😇


RisingMenance

RED must be the weakest Korean team ever, can't even make Home audience excited for more than 10 min.


RisingMenance

It's so unfair that RNG can play at home while other teams need to play in the library.


ElectronicSample843

stop with the nautilus picks please...


Corridor_ZZ

I just can't stand those stupid people who spam the chat anymore.


Contagious_Cure

Yeah I just turn chat off for RNG games.


zhangluu

Are the audiences watching remotely with 35min ping from a library? Is that why it's so quiet?

I even thought the tournament is holding at mortuary


AssPork

It's actually hilarious that people think RNG is legit cheating in this comment thread lma0.


CommunistHongKong

Complaining about map cheats when Bin was playing try not to get caught challenge (MODE: IMPOSSIBLE)


JaneBladex

thinly veiled racism, same BS that gets spammed in twitch chat


iReddat420

It's not even veiled in twitch chat lmao


xXVoidXx

It’s not even thinly veiled here on Reddit lmao


lol_ls

Yea they are cheating by having better mechanics...rofl


Sky-is-here

KR library is good

Where is my tuning fork? I have to check whether I have any hearing problem

What a lucian god


thvsbin

It will always be a GALA diff.


Jareddarkness

Busan Library


Rshawer

Koreans can never bitch about Chinese crowd not cheering every again, cuz clearly they don’t cheer either. It’s now just an accepted social norm that neither will cheer for the other.


Mogician_

just go take a look at Chinese social media. Theres no way they dont cheer for other teams, especially Korean ones. Kr fangirl base is huge


RenatoSinclair

Crazy because there’s so many LCK fans in LPL - even lots of casters like LCK teams over LPL teams (ie that crazy Gen G caster fan), so they do cheer. It’s just not as loud, but at least it isn’t a library.


Zyvexal

Except the Chinese crowd actually did cheer. A lot. There are multiple videos from the fans' perspective that showed this, the cheering was just not picked up by the mic, and also the stadium was only like 20% full or something cuz of covid protocols


Horace919

RisingMenance

vicious circle


zhangluu

People legit claiming RNG was map hacking and scripting in games vs wildcards? I guess having brain cells is too hard.


Mogician_

just a reminder there are photo evidence that the audience can see the players screens clearly in this venue. Cant wait to hear the crowd when rng plays against t1 and try to sneak baron or prepare an ambush


Sephy1998

I know, they are literally spamming "map hacks" when Bin got caught out multiple times due to lack of vision.


jlin37

It’s like the person in a relationship whose actually cheating, they are always paranoid that the other is too, so they lash out even when there is no evidence or logic supporting them. Cough World Cup 2002, Cough Italy.


Amiti94

Coughs in Spanish too*. But totally true. They are truly paranoid, they think others like to cheat because that's what they do. I also remember S2 Azubu Woong looking at the minimap vs TSM.


Typical_Thought_6049

And there is times times when you cheat so skillfully that it is only the only explanation is divine intervention. There is times when god give you a hand. Cough World Cup 1986, Cough Argentina.


zeyu12

Because koreans are the ones mainly complaining. Of course they would know [https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/119zlz/30000\_dollar\_fine\_for\_azubu\_frost\_for\_rule/](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/119zlz/30000_dollar_fine_for_azubu_frost_for_rule/) They literally cheated at Worlds and got away with it.


TCaller

No they were definitely map hacking. They definitely needed to cheat to beat wild cards. I’m your average Reddit challenger btw and I know my stuff.


Contagious_Cure

Was Leona nerfed? Why is Nautilus being picked over her? Leona would also give Draven more damage than Nautilus and is tankier late game.


Former_Fennel_9140

Don't blame the audience, maybe they're just afraid to disturb the rest of the U.S. forces in Korea.


ivanjin

Twitch chat is getting dumber by the day


nooticer87

atleast it's not race war yt chat

i mean i saw someone type "only good chineze is a dead chineze" and someone say that the world would be better without china. I turned off chat after that damn ppl are toxic


iNTact_wf

the OnFleek special

Whoever said that is about to get a 3 game ban from LCK.

Omnilatent

I knew it was over when the minions spawned


TastyForerunner

Riot, please introduce the CS:GO Major format. Give us two teams from each Wildcard region to let them get that visibility and performance on the big stage. Call them Grandmasters or whatever. Let the top 2/3 from LCK, LEC, and LPL auto-qualify to the international tournaments, with LCS getting their top 1 auto-qualifying. Call them Immortals and give them some credit for it. Give us two representatives from the PCS, VCS, and LJL as Challengers to fit in-between. Then have your lower seeds from the LCK, LPL, and LEC qualify into Challengers and Grandmasters as the international gatekeepers. Change your goddamn format.


icatsouki

we have so many good teams i don't understand why we get to see so few international games


usuarioabencoado

laughable performance. at least we have five world cups


ButterflyHaunting102

i mean brazil is quite good in several other esports


Melodic_Time2608

Man I still remember the first time luminosity won major


Ricky0524

Don’t ban ezreal boys


Strict-Ad-7992

ezreal actually nerfs gala


shadowmushroom1

korean audience took the crown from chinese audience for being the worst audience in lol it seems


TheGhoulKhz

i mean, at least it was in 28min


HauntingClothes1620

Fun fact: This was the first penta made on a tournament on 35 ping


Mogician_

no pentakill during msc?


Ramus_N

Gala played exceptionally well, but watching Nami/Lucian was boring as fuck.


Roamseeker

i thought it was very fun tbh
