Overall, I was actually going for REC. I had been a huge NV fan mainly due to Snip3down, Mikwen, and Ola the previous season. When they split I went with REC because I had been following SD the longest and Mikwen since early MCC days. Ola I always loved but my personal playstyle is like SD. If REC didn't take it- I was going to go for TOX. I used to hate them but then followed them more closely and found it was mainly Lethul's bad attitude I didn't like. Frosty and R2 are insane- SB as well. If they didn't take it I was going for Ola, (NV) as he is one of the longest competing players in the game. I was super happy with NV's performance- I will admit, I would've liked to have seen how REC vs NV game 7 would have gone without the controller disconnect (I personally feel REC would have one) but regardless- one heck of a series. Also, the TOX vs NV was quite good as well. I was honestly sad to see Splyce win- not taking anything at all from those players- they clearly deserved the W. They are amazing. But as an older player , it would've been nice to see some of the old schoolers take the W. All around though, I can't be mad. Splyce is clearly the better team and put on a dominating performance.
The teams that made it to top four def belong there though- all of their performances are so far above. I will say Renegade was showing a lot of light and honestly I thought Elevate looked pretty good at times. Not to mention the EU team Infused. USA still stomps though. Maybe in a few years we'll get an EU team in top four.
