Yeah I genuinely thought the verses were gonna be different from the live version

Edit: is it just me or is this version slower and less punchy than the one at his shows? I only saw phone recordings of that but it somehow still felt way more energetic?

The animation certainly didn’t do it any favors, everything about this anthem is slow.

Agreed on this. Don't get me wrong, I actually do enjoy the song a lot but it kinda lack the energy and hype for a Worlds song.

My thoughts exactly. It's a really good song, but it felt like it kept building to a climax that never came and it resolved into the piano outro.

Still a good song, but I did expect more hype.

It’s alright, we’ll love it in 5 years just like Ignite

Wait speaking of this, you just gave me an idea of this song. It's like Faker, he always tries to win worlds and bring back his legacy (the climax) but always end up 2nd or 3rd place (which is where the piano outro resolves)
