EU isn't really better than NA.
The only EU team that is up there is M5. CLE.EU has a chance against WE, but no real chance vs M5 or AF. And if TPA play that solid, CLG wouldn't have a chance against them, too.
M5 + Asian teams > NA and EU
TSM had the bad luck to meet AF as their first enemy.
But at the same time we have to say that Asian teams are as much as EU + NA together. It is no surprise that they are not only good teams, but (if you don't root for one but watch objectively) are also in the number advantage (you could say that they are Korea, China and the rest of Asian, but they are still all from one continent. Why don't we have 2 Canadian, 2 USA, 2 French, 2 German, ... teams?).
- M5 rape ALL NA teams
- CLG.EU (sadly) rape ALL NA teams
- SK/Fnatic regulary destroy most NA teams
- NA teams NEVER have results in any tourneys when there is EU/Asian teams and the decks aren't stacked HEAVYLY in their favor (like giving outsider teams 200+ ms due to having everyone play on NA tourney server, or having 3/4 NA teams for 8 slots... while making pretty sure at least a group allows 1/2 NA teams to advance)... EVEN like that NA teams gets destroyed EVERY time there is a foreign team in the mix, without being handicaped as Hell (see Azubu Blaze recently).
Yeah, NA is SOOOO competitive.
PS : Remind me how much NA teams are still running for the finals when they were MADE to be able to compete ? And remind how many Korean teams got out of groups when they both should have bypassed that stage and NA teams should have been all in (and not get out) ?
Now remind me how many EU teams still compete (yes even the retarded boring one :/).
PS : the day you want to take into account "number of countries and/or number of people playing" think again, the day it happens NA have 1 out of 40 spots in any tourneys.....
(just EUNE have more participating teams AND more players than NA right now, knowing NA lose players every few months with Korean server launch, then BR server launch, soon SA server launch and so on... soon NA shard will be the smaller shard of LoL, behind both Garena ones ).
