So i think it would be fun to make a list of the biggest problems for each team coming into S2. I wanna see what people thinks are going to be the biggest problems ( related to the offseason mainly) for each team based on what we see/know right now :).
Toronto: They dont have a strong widow player and their main tank seems a lot behind his rivals in the league
Chengdu: 5 players who were supposed to be starters for this team actually retired/refuse or signed for another team(at least for the rumors). Krystal and Silkthread for the flex dps, Sky for the flex supp and Beasthalo and Jinquiren for main tank position. This means 3 positions of the team are filled with no 1st choices and 2 of them (flex dps, main tank) with the 3rd choice.
Seoul: consisentcy of dps and support, yes their tankline improved but the rest? The fact they wanted to sign Lucid tells a lot.
Shanghai: yes they took KDP lost 2 of the better players and while i think diem is a really good options for decay i dont think Fearless is a better choice than Roar. They are like a less good version of last contenders season KDP imho.
DC: they tried to signed logix but he refuses due to the low pay so they choose his budget version( Corey)....i wonder how many other players they lost for the same reason. Also SanSam.
Philly and LAV: i put them togheter cause imho they have the same problem. Neither of them improved and instead they kinda look weaker ( maybe cause the competition will be higher)
Paris: I love Paris team but when i see the team i wonder if they had not better choices in some position ( that are still in contender EU).
Hangzhou: i knos their strenght will come from main tank, main supp and flex dps, but i feel like the other 3 roles( that are undoubtfully solid) are weaker than the "medium" player in that role.
Florida: instead of rebuild around the good players of the team ( Logix, Manneten,Zuppeh,( and i know people disagree but i still think Tviq is a good player)) they decided to "just go mediocre koreans 4head". Also i still dont understand why they did not move Mineral to an analyst role ( cause he is a good analyst) and took another Head Coach.
London: yeah they won but they ended up 9th on Stage 4 last season. Except for Stage 1 and part of Stage 2 their regular season was a mess. And the players they released were already released in stage 4. I dont think they have fixed this problem.
Boston: Still is unknown if they have an HC or not ( probably is Shake). I like the fact they are poaching from non mainstream region (ColorHex is a beast) but overall they kinda lack of something? Better wait to see who will be their hitscan.
LAG: Best offeseson of all the league. Maybe the fact they dont have a standout offtank dont put them at the top. ( Bishu and Void are both super solid players tho)
Dallas: The fact they dont have clearly in mind what tondo about their dps lineup.Zacharee was know as a genji one trick ( a year ago). I am really confident about him being the projectile( i am a big fan of his addiction to the team), but the fact he is nor the best phara ( AKM) nor the best DF ( effect) give them more trouble abouts resolving their dps lineup enigma . Also the fact they have two not tracer hitscan ( AKM and Taimou) is kinda strange. Also Taimou has probably the best junkrat. Also Effect is overrated.
SFS: A bit like Dallas but much better overall. 2 tracer main. One hitscan not tracer main but their best Widow is the flex dps( Architect) also Rascal. I bet most team would love to have this kind of problems. But i think this could hurt them a bit during the season.
NYXL: too many dps of high level ( they could have made some usefull trades fron them) and no backup tank.
Atlanta: hitscan position. I think Nlaeer will impress a lot of people (remember that he played all the contenders season with 200ms and still he was able to be a great player) but still i am not too confident.
Guangzhou: Offtank posiont is solid but nothing more and overall they dont see to have a lot of standout players except maybe from the dps positions.
Vancouver: yes is Runaway. But here the same things from Shangai. They did not improver their team. Guangzhou and Hangzhou actually took teams that were less good but they had big additions who improved a lot their base team and let them even pass in quality VC and especcialy SHD. No improvements except from Rapel.
Houston: i mean Danteh cover problems but still they could have improved a lot more the team.
What do you guys thinks? What do you think are the biggest problems,related mainly to the offseason moves, of each team?
Also sorry for my poor grammar but i was a bit in hurry
( and i swear i wanted to put offseason in the title) :)
