Is TheMax a super good TG player? Yes! Is he the best? Probs not. Top 5? For sure. Don't forget about TheViper, Mr Yo, Miguel and many others. Suomi strategy usually sets TheMax up for top score. It would be more fair to say that Suomi is one of the best teams in the world.
Suomi won because they played very well. Winland beat Secret before remember? Epic games!
Kinda ehh about the mass slinging but seeing 5 people sling and watching TheViper duke it against fast imp Turks and Goths was amazing.
Also Slam and JorDan_23 <3
JorDan is the Prince that was Promised, obviously his return to #1 should be kept hidden so NAC2 would be even more epic.
But seriously, the dude has a full time job and a kid. He probably can't find the time to play show matches. I'm sure he is practicing with Viper or our Lord for NAC2
Would be nice to have the draft available, either on stream or on AoEZone. With KOTD2 and NAC2 going on at the same time its hard to remember the settings from the stages (What civs are free pick and which one are mandatory)
Well that is kinda the problem with some top players: Heart, Larry, Jordan, Slam and others have amazing potential and talent but just don't play enough. The only players I always see playing games are Viper, MBL, Tati, the Finnish and the Chinese players and they always perform well in...
It would be unfair to change it now after players already lost because of saving the better civs for later rounds. Yes some players had a easier route and thus were able to save their better civs but what do you want? Viper Larry R1?
