The best e-sports teams are in your hands. How can you find them? Well, it is not that easy to do. There are several factors that determine the standing of a particular team, and these are some of the things that you should know about.
First of all, the kind of game played and the kind of structure the tournament has will play a major role in determining the standing of any team. For example, Team Liquid would have had a great position if they had been able to win the League of Legends World Championship, but since they lost to Na’Vi, their chances of winning the championship were very low. Meanwhile, Na’Vi won the tournament and went on to win the whole thing.
It is also important to note that a star player on any team will greatly affect the ranking of that team. For example, if someone like Dendi, who is a very good player, was on NaVi, then their chances of getting on top would be much better. Since their chances of getting there would be much higher than if they were on another team.
Well, they have to face their opponents, and they have to play a long tournament. But they should be prepared for both losses and wins. After all, they have to beat their rivals, and they should beat them well.
The players on the teams should be strong enough to carry their team through a tough fight. They should have a certain aura about them. Their aura should be strong enough to get their team out of whatever situation it is in.
For example, if you were to watch Fnatic, you would realize that their players have an aura that says they are strong, and they have the ability to carry out their game plan no matter what. But if you watched Team Liquid, you would see that they lack in this department. They are just average at best.
One thing about winning and losing is that the strength of a team does not really rely on its strength alone. Strength should be more about teamwork. And Team Liquid lacks teamwork.
If you think about Na’Vi, they have one of the strongest teams in the world. They also have the strongest players. Their strongest players are Puppey and XBOCT, and they have able to bring the other members of the team together.
Their weak point, however, is their communication. They tend to have huge disconnects between each other. It is often the case that when their communication is down, they are not able to perform well, or play at their best.
Team Liquid, on the other hand, has their communication problems too. They sometimes tend to forget who is playing which role. This is one of the major factors that lead to failures during a game.
In short, it comes down to how much you like the personality of each team, and how much you like your team and you as a person. And the last thing, I must stress is that you have to believe that your team will do well and your team will make it to the finals. This is why if you choose your team carefully, you can actually see the effects of your choice on your team.
Most likely, you might end up liking one team more than the other. The biggest factor is how much you believe in your team, and how much you believe in yourself.
Big Four in Online Games
When we talk about the big four in online games, we don’t usually have an eye on any one of the other, smaller yet still big players in e-sports. We only see those big four, because of their names and reputations that we associate with their products.
Natus Vincere is a team that, although they haven’t made any major errors in recent history, have yet to prove they are as dominant as they have previously been. It’s been speculated that Natus Vincere is only good in scrims, not the real game.
As for Team Liquid, the previous name Nip is no more, but Liquid has experienced a revival after being back together during the first few months of the split. Although the team’s teamwork was slightly lacking, it wasn’t much of a concern, until the final playoff series against Team Dignitas.
In the end, Team Liquid lost the series to the rival Dignitas, and Liquid, in fact, maybe the underdog this time around, though that hasn’t stopped fans from proclaiming that their team is the best in the world. Fans have also proclaimed that Team Liquid will make the World’s stage.
Team Liquid is made up of Koreans, which could pose some problems, especially since the Korean scene is growing more competitive. It also is not guaranteed that the Korean meta is going to work in the favor of Team Liquid, which might mean the team will not make it through to the World’s stage.
Team Liquid has known roster troubles before, though they managed to overcome them and continue. The roster is as follows:
Despite these predictions, we cannot say with certainty that Team Liquid will make it to the finals. Team Liquid definitely has a higher chance of getting to the playoffs than any other team, but their chances may be very slim.
The prediction is the same for Fnatic, who is another team that has proven to be a threat. However, Fnatic has to prove it again by proving that they can hold off the larger, more experienced teams at the event.
Fnatic is led by James “Bakery” Baker, who has proven to be the star of his team, with more prominence than Na’Vi. IEM Cologne will prove to be a great indicator of how Fnatic will do.
The story for Fnatic is that they haven’t had much practice or time to make use of their champion pools, so it will be a factor that might determine whether or not Fnatic can qualify for the final stage. If they don’t perform well, they could be heading for some high-level of disappointment.
IEM Cologne will also test the mettle of Team Liquid and Team Dignitas, and Fnatic as well. Team Liquid is the big favorite, but both teams have a good chance to make it out of groups.
IEM Cologne will provide the best opportunity for each team to establish themselves as champions and rivals of the Na’Vi, Fnatic, and Team Liquid. It is a massive event and there are a lot of things to watch for in this tournament.
