He does it again and again!

As the title of the newsletter suggests, daps HAS done it again. He's got really far with a team only to get smashed to bits by stanislaw - but at least this time, he gets to keep his team.

Though EG won the final pretty cleanly, using their map advantage to sweep 3-0, the final was just the cherry on the icing on the cake. It would have been nice to win, but as usual, stanislaw has the last, evil, laugh.

It's nice to see EG back, but we at TLDR are more of the underdog kinda guys. Seeing stanislaw do well is cool and all, but we prefer daps. stanislaw is like Mom from Futurama, a big corporation leader who keeps trying to take over the little guy, and is annoyingly good at it.

It's to be expected of us - napz is Dutch, which is like Germany's little brother, we've got a couple of Danes - Sweden's weird cousin, and a few Englishmen, which, well...

Anyway, daps and Gen.G have had a remarkable rise. His ragtag bunch of pieces from around North America and Asia (or Poland, but we're bored of that joke) has turned into a frightening team with him at the helm, dropping a 0.89 rating as always. It's like the billionth time he's done this. Or third. Who's counting?

Wins over 100 Thieves and Liquid have made them one of NA's finest teams, and are now set to qualify for the Major in Rio... if it happens, of course.

One team who look unlikely to qualify are MIBR, who - if our maths is correct, and the format stays the same - will need to win the last event and see C9 and FURIA finish below 7th. The Road to Rio should have been quite short for them, but there's a big Snorlax in the way in the form of their level of play.
