    Really the only odd thing I see about this is that they have the final day scheduled on Easter.

    I know a lot of people are going to be doing stuff with family that day (perhaps grudgingly, but nonetheless). I mean if your family hangs out and watches League that's pretty awesome, but it seems like a really odd day to have the finals of a major tournament on.

    Am looking forward to the teams that are going to be in it though.

    The only problem I have with this is there seems to be alot of teams going with no real chance of winning. I mean in NA only curse and clg have any real chance. The 6 foreign teams from EU and Asain will all be able to win, but that's 8 out of 32 teams if I am not mistaken. Still should be some great match's. Hopefully TSM and Dig can come back into the fray, they have really dropped off, I mean they are not even trying right now which is very strange.

    TSM not have a chance? TSM is still pretty much top of the NA scene. I hate to be that guy, but every tournament places then against the best teams from EU and Asia while the others get luckier with their placement and maybe fight other NA teams.

    Do they have to step it up? Yes. Crs showed that the EU teams can be beaten by winning against GG this weekend. However, to bring a comparison to sports, TSM has the harder schedule.

    I was not stating TSM are no longer good, more that they have gotten VERY lazy of late. CLG and Crs have commented that they have no idea how good tsm are atm because they are not scrimming vs anyone. Back when Tsm went on their mini rampage of destroying everyone they had a regourse practice schedules. Now they have gotten very laid back and can hardly win the first round of there own tournament.

    Ofc with practice they should get back to where they were, but that might not be enough to put them top of Na any more. Tsm at there previous best does imo would not cut it against the current curse line up.

    The only problem here is the fact that GG played like crap in the group stage. Does Crs come close to beating GG when GG plays 80-90% the way they did against both blazes? nope.

    I think the NA teams will get better since there are more teams playing at a higher level, but I don't think I'll expect anyone to be the favorite in a Bo5 against the upper tier of EU and Asian Teams. wtb NA contender.
