IEM World Championship discussion topic 2

#1Game ShowPosted 3/15/2014 1:06:26 AM(edited)
Wanted to make a new topic because
1. Due to day 1's delays, day 2 starts an hour earlier than originally scheduled! See second post
2. Add new info about VODs

Live stream
http://www.twitch.tv/esltv_lol

For day 1, they made a "live VOD" available, so days 2 and 3 should also have it. Basically, they would update this VOD after every 30 minutes of the live stream, so you could watch earlier parts of the day's broadcast with rewind/pause/skip ahead functionality. For example, if you missed the first hour, you can watch this VOD, skip right to picks and bans of game 1 and when that game ends, refresh the page and it loads more live time you missed while watching game 1. You can then skip to game 2 picks and bans, and so on, and get caught up that way

Here are individual match VOD links, ordered by approximate upload speed. Note: The "live VOD" might be the fastest way of catching up if you only missed a game or 2

I don't have a problem with fiddle jungle as much as I have a problem with IG's entire comp.

Feels like they didn't have a clear idea of what they were looking for. They don't have enough poke to be a poke comp with their nid, and they don't have the hard engage and teamfight potential to take that route either and fight as 5. Shaky pick/ban phase imo.
