That nasty-ass feeling when your favorite team just falls on their faces after a promising first week.
Stuff like that is always sad. Even more so when both the team’s (re-)rise to relevance and their sudden choking came unexpectedly. I was not prepared to see CLG go 2-4 on the Group Stage. I thought we wouldn’t be let down anymore, that the times of continuous disappointment were over. It was not so.
Luckily, the team’s (rather inconsistent) star player did a post-game interview and talked about where he felt things went wrong, how the team would be handling the loss at a chance of making it to the quarter-finals, and what the future might hold. He was real sportsmanlike about it, and highlighted how much they’ve improved over the past year: from not even being close to making it to Worlds, to actually getting there and beating their rival team in the process.
It would’ve been such a great story if they scored even bigger this season, but apparently they weren’t ready yet. Can’t wait for next year!
