I'm not complaining; I'm criticizing from what I've seen, which unfortunately isn't a whole lot. I'm not just talking about a few guys. I'm talking about the entire team.
Here's the thing. Persistence is a bitch. In order to get the results you want you have to be willing to put in the hours. We're not just talking about practice, practice. We're talking about diligent practice and efficient practice. Perhaps EG needs a head coach riding their balls to get them to put the work required in.
Why not get Geoff to do it?
Naniwa has said that is the big difference between Korean practice... they practice very focused, VS specific weakeness, or strengths of opponents, specific map problems etc. Not just "mass gaming". A coaches full time job is to analize what players are weak at, and make them stronger. To notice trends in the game and on maps, and train his players to be profficent in executing and defending them... and mostly, even pro North American players are left to themselves to discover these things and drill them.

They allowed Thorzain to stay in the SC2 pro scene and play, thats right, you ungrateful nerds should realize sometimes that it is those people that are actually making esport live... And again, not an EG fan... On topic, gl to both, feel like Thorzain should be a new kickstart for EG's results, seems needed those days
If you actually cared for ThorZain's well-being you would wish he quit SC2 and went to school. And I couldn't care less about esports.
Because you know what's best for Thorzain better than he knows himself, right?
well considering huk is reportedly paid 6 figures... i think its not that bad
How long can he keep that up ? From economical (which I am arguing from) standpoint your best bet is going to school. Of course from general point of view I cannot know what is best for ThorZain. But school is statistically your best bet anyway in nearly all scenarios.
If that's the case you should be telling everyone in mouz to go to school, because economically all of them are being stupid for doing pro-gaming, no?
Few things. If I was rationally advising them on what should they do, I would tell them all to go to school. So yes, all mouz players (all smart enough SC2 players without higher education in general) should continue with education instead of playing SC2. But ultimately it is their choice and they are free to do stupid things and pursue whatever they want. Thus I am not arguing from rational advisor standpoint, because I am not responsible for them. The argument I was making was to point out that people saying that we should praise EG for making ThorZain economically well off are missing the fact that him going to school would make him economically even better off in the long term. To summarize, I was not saying what he should do. I was saying that there is no reason to praise/not hate EG for the money, as if we actually cared about ThorZain being well off we should encourage him to quit SC2. But people do not care purely about him being well off. People want him to play SC2 first and having a lot of money second.
Though he could still go to school while living in the Lair there are online options which are increadibly viable
Punched my desk so hard my family came running up to my room thinking something really bad just happened... No mom, the Yankees Evil Geniuses just bought another of my favorite players... I guess I'm going to have start rooting for them now
Mad good video though, Incontrol is a beast
The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

Awesome addition to an awesome team. A lot of people hate on EG for not producing awesome players but I would like anyone to identify another foreign team that does as much for the community as EG and TL do. It looks like players want to play for EG because they take care of their players and they seem to get along with each other really well. Pretty much every player adds commentary when they stream. They hold tournaments with great players involved. They cast games. I think Thorzain is a perfect fit for EG. A great guy and player who gets involved with the community joins a team that does a ton for the community. Cant beat that. And please just stop with the whole "EG is buying a team" argument, they arent forcing these players to leave their team and join EG and the players are not brain dead. If they decided to leave a team and join EG lets give Thorzain and others the benefit of the doubt that they can think for themselves and make the best decision for them. Maybe other teams should try as hard as EG to grow.

Education can wait plenty. Why the rush? Tons of people go back to college to get their masters or even their first bachelor's much later in life. No rush. Take what can now and save up for that college fund.
