Jesus christ, Gamespot, leave him alone; he clearly doesn't want to talk, especially about the game.

@SolidSymphonia this was not directly after the match. This was at least an hour after. Also he was ok with it. I would never force a player to do an interview. We asked he said ok. Also, valve was taking him to dinner and they said it was ok to do the walk and talk because they didnt want us to hold him down in a spot for another 5-10 min. I get that its rough, but if eSports wants to be bigger this is a part of it. I am sad for Dendi as well but I'm happy he was willing to talk to us.

@MassDeparture1 They played fantastically and won the game on two separate moments of quick thinking by s4 (talking of the last game strictly, and not their massively successful campaign). They earned it.

Like I said, it is part of the game that has to be accepted, theres an advance loop hole in the theory but im not going to go into that much detail with children nearby

@ThunderSly @MassDeparture1 @iHarlequin No they wouldn't have won if they pushed all lanes and then mid, Alliance knew they were weak and didn't want to fight head on so that's why they kept split push pressure. 

Even though Navi outplayed them in teamfights, Alliance outplayed them in overall strategy. Plus they won winner brackets on top of that too.

@MassDeparture1 @iHarlequin Its like Dendi said if they had pushed all the lanes then mid they would have won! They had aegis and a huge advantage... Im sad for Dendi I hope they cheer up and keep impressing us with the high level of play that they show :D
