iirc he had wanted to take a break for awhile and was slightly reluctant to return just before TI. He also goes out on such a high note this way and on his terms (which he wanted even before being a TI champ) so it really is a great idea for him! I worry about who can replace him though ;)

On November 5th PPD tweeted that NiP will not incur any penalty for using a stand in during the Kuala Lumpur Major. https://twitter.com/Peterpandam/status/1059564273997889536 Most likely it is because it had nothing to do with them not securing it in time or various reasons but because the country refuses anyone with an Israeli passport and they had no choice due to the discrimination factor

I'll talk to Database folks and see why they have it listed that way... you are correct, its 1 point per win and thats all... I didn't pay attention to what their tables awarded since i don't create or contribute to those! thanks

It not true at all... there are plenty of pro stacks that either 1. take time to pull together enough with synergy and playstyles or 2. just don't make it (lets look at examples like Big God or even other iterations of other big Chinese orgs, not to mention when we see even teams like the TI3 Alliance reform and have no achievements etc). Its written from a perspective that this team just formed a few weeks ago and it is the first big LAN with all top names teams and it was not sure what to expect, let alone some teams going undefeated over teams that have been together awhile like VP etc.

agreed! But I do feel it was under-advertised and felt like there was very little attention given to it.
