TSM throwing away money? I thought Regi was a business man >.<

So I just realized... the difference between the 9/10th and the 11/12th payout is $15,000 USD (45k vs 30k)... By f'ing around and losing that last game to GG.eu, they went 2-6 instead of 3-5 (which would have put them tied with LD and forced a tie breaker) Did they really want the day to be over so badly/have enough cash, that they just gifted them the 15k? Or was regi just derping? That's one expensive troll game xD

They knew they sucked and didnt deserve to be ranked higher.

you clearly aren't a businessman, because you think the prize money is the only way to generate revenues.

We walk toward desire, hand in hand through fields of fire, with only love to light the way, on the road to judgement day.

Except he never said anything like that. He was just wondering why they would throw away a chance to increase their winnings by 50%.

They threw away what? Like 8k? So you have any idea how much they got from their sponsors for simply being at Worlds?

Besides, doing something for the fans goes a long way. They knew there was no chance of them winning, so they went out with style.

They just lost because they are bad.

Since they aren't getting past the group stage this year and overall had a mediocre performance, a trolly screw-off game is the best thing to keep dat publicity coming in.
