I guess we'll see this next week if BG deserves to be in T1 ,or if they just benefited from an elevated ELO from facerolling through tiers.
I don't get you Stitch. Sometimes you have some solid observations and sometimes it's like you're playing a different game.
A few factoids ...
BG was the red server in a T2 match 4 weeks ago against SBI and IoJ, where BG took 3rd, just 9k points behind IoJ, which was BEFORE the HoD, ET and the majority of EU transfers. Due to a big jump by CD that week, BG dropped to the green server in T3. It was the Friday of that T3 match when most of the transfers came in.
Yes the next 2 matches were curbstomps, but that does not discount BG's move into T1 as a legitimate T1 contender (at that time).
BG took 2nd last week, with 25k over JQ by the final. If BG didn't earn T1, or hadn't yet proven to be in T1, how did that happen?
