2Easy and Seagull definitely right about the Koreans eventually forming a mega-team when players begin to establish themselves more. Nanohana, Haksal, Miro, Ryu could make for a pretty insane core.

this game will end up like SC2 and LoL if they keep this game like it is atm !
in 1 year u will have 3 korean teams in the top5 of the world !
every game that doesnt require raw-aim will be dominated by koreans in the END !
i would like to have a little more balance between aim and ultimates . way to many ultimates just oneshot 3 -4 ppl if u dont have support ults !

roadtodumpsterevery game that doesnt require raw-aim will be dominated by koreans in the END !

This statement irks me some. I know you didn't mean any harm but it implies that Korean esport scene is not competitive when it comes to fps that are based on raw aim. The only reason Koreans are not in the CS:GO scene is because they do not actively play CS here. There is a different game in Korea aptly called Sudden Attack. Valve games are under represented by Koreans because the way ppl play of games here in Korea is very different from elsewhere around the world.

I am sure that if the esport scene here were to support CS:GO you would see similar levels of competitiveness/dominance you are in sc2 and lol

fps games are played in korea, just not the fps games you're familiar with. the highest level of korean gameplay competes with the highest level of western as far as "raw-aim." i've lived/played fps games extensively within both regions and what you're discussing is a misconception.

in any case overwatch will never be purely a first-person shooter. you may be signed up to the wrong game if you're looking for something reminiscent of csgo.

I think #5 was saying that the reason koreans aren't very present in games such as quake and counter strike is that those games aren't really played there. also considering he seems to be korean he probably knows more about gaming culture there.

Some people are believing that Koreans are actually more skilled mechanically, simply because some well-known personalities brought up that Koreans also have a large competitive FPS scene.

However, the fact is, if you actually played with Koreans, or just compare top tier players, Korean players are simply not as good mechanically. It's quite an objective thing and people too easily get defensive.
