Acer.pl has easiest group ever. As for the strongest group it's hard choice between A and D. Good thing that 3 teams from each group goes through to the next stage! Also why Acer has 2 different flags? Pls change the first one to polish.

Peluquerias = Hairdressers and Naruterador is their jungler, so it's the barbers of Naruterador. Looked it up when I joined qu1ksh0t last sunday.

I just create an account here, just to explain what's the meaning of PEINE in Spain.

Peine in english is Comb and Peluquerías is Hairdressers, that's correct. But here, PEINE has nothing to do with comb or Hairdressers.

In spain, we use the colloquial expression "PEINAR to someone" when someone is kicked out of his Team.

Instead to say <<Shushei was kicked from Fnatic>>, or a correct form in Spanish: <<Shushei fue expulsado de Fnatic>>, We say << Shushei fue "peinado" de fnatic>>..

The name "Peluquerias Naruterador" is a sarcastic/comical name. In Spain there are a lot of new teams every week, but only 1 or 2 teams achieve to stay alive without disband or without changes in the lineup.

So the expression <<Kick someone == Peinar someone >> is really popular in spanish forums.

I hope you understand the meaning of PEINE now. x'D
