When God shuts a door, he opens a window. When Riot Games open a giant chasm, Extra Salt take advantage.
Rumours of NA's demise are greatly exaggerated. Sort of. Give us a sec to gush over Extra Salt before we qualify that statement.
We're also really happy to see JT crushing it - he's a super smart IGL whose teams are always extremely disciplined and quietly have some of the best utility usage in the whole world..
Right, now onto the 'sort of' part of that 'NA isn't that bad' spiel. Evil Geniuses.
They bombed out quickly after getting 2-0'd by the exact same teams that ES bodied, which isn't exactly a great sign for the new line-up. We guess the best thing we can say about it is that, at least MICHU wasn't the only one who went negative for the event, so he's not entirely to blame.
They went out joint last with... Virtus.pro? Yeah, we're back in 2015 or something, where VP are simultaneously the best and worst team in the world with no discernible reason as to why everything flips on its head.
