Q: I’ve only really been listening to Deep Look and paying attention to club for a year or two now, but you seem to harp on last places finishes as absolutely disastrous, the sky is falling, etc. Mostly looking at DiG here after their 16th place finish last year. Every time you would bring them up in an article/Deep Look, you make it sound like they had a massive collapse when they just played like shit in consolation. I have some friends on DiG and Slow and from what they tell me is that when they got knocked out of the bracket they just started immediately drinking/smoking cigs/generally not caring, so it seems weird to put so much emphasis these games and not where/how they got knocked out of the bracket.

I guess this boils down to: Why do you put so much emphasis on consolation games, instead of bracket exit, when the players seem to not place the same emphasis on these games?

P.S. It could also be that DiG and Slow are just degens and other teams don’t do this.
