its not an official match so i think it would be more exciting. if youre trying to build hype what is more hype for both parties than a tie?

As seen by their recent trip in Korea, Rogue aren't unbeatable. You just need inhuman coordination and the best Ana, Winston, Genji and Lucio in the region to beat them.

Jokes aside, they're mortal.

I think xqc, s4, agilities, roolf and verbo are guaranteed to be on team Canada, but it's hard to predict team usa, jake maybe ?

If I remember correctly Agilities is too young to be one the team, I might be wrong though.

That's what he was saying on stream a while back but he found out he can just get a parent waiver for that part, so he is eligible.

I can't speak for the US team but Canada I agree that S4, xQc, Agilities, Rool and Verbo are pretty much in. The last person needs to be able to flex dps/tank unless they want to run triple dps all the time but Train (LG Evil) might be a good flex pick.

#20

I'd say IDDQD/AZK from Team Liquid are better picks.

#25

I'd take S4 and Agilities over them without hesitation.

Ye, but I meant that either IDDQD or AZK is better pick than Train.

I haven't seen _ID and AZK flex to that off tank role as much, and I don't know what their OT pool looks like if needed, so I don't think they'd be viable choice, imo.

Especially since "Ana mains" can't just play Ana now they have to be able to play zen and mercy

#21
One_Punch_Man

Frags

the top tier supports were already playing mercy/zen prior to ana even coming out. I can't think of any NA/EU pro that got picked up purely for their ana that then needed to learn zen/mercy. For example, I knew shake as a zen god (solid mercy) and became an ana god afterwards. Same as Floor.

#18

If you want an equally good ana and zen,i suggest picking up dogman since i haven't seen as much zen from rawkus

#22

I think it's safe to say that Seagull is probably the only guaranteed member for team USA. Not sure about other picks since there's a really wide variety of players that can be picked, plus you also have to include the streamers that aren't on pro teams.

#23

Didn't seagull say he isn't on the team, because he wanted to stream scrims, and the committee didn't?

He said he wouldn't be in the World Cup team if they were going to be 100% serious about it because he wouldn't be able to stream the scrims. I have no clue what the final result of this is though.

#27

I really should read posts fully before I post myself but it is what it is

Either way my prediction for USA roster

  • MESR
  • Adam
  • Shake
  • GODS
  • sinatraa
  • GrimReality

I actually had a very tough time deciding on a 6th. It was a tie between GrimReality ,emongg, and harbleu (I can really see either of them being chosen in the end tbh) but in the end I chose GrimReality since dive comp/multi dps compositions are the meta at the pro level essentially.

I also had a few"Bubble" picks that could replace any of the players above in their respective role (in no particular order)

Tank:

  • FCTFCTN
  • Super

Support (flex):

  • Dogman
  • Michael3D
  • rob420
  • Rawkus

Flex:

  • harbleu
  • emongg
  • Voll
  • hyped

DPS:

  • Jake
  • Lui
  • J3sus
  • Calvin
  • Clockwork
#28

Team Canada:

Mangachu
Surefour
Agilities
xQc
Roolf
Joemeister/phaz/verbo (I would pick Joe)

#31

Frags

Considering how far away the event is I feel like having a really good flex is important, that being said, I hope Canada will take either train or Zza

Of course if triple dps is still prevelant though, Mangachu, Agilities , and S4 are obviously the best choice

#46
Joshua

Yeah was hoping the same for those 2 but from what I've heard zza wasn't picked, he only got to try out 1 day and after that didn't give him another​ chance. :(

#48

Frags

Wow that sucks, i was kind of saying an either or thing though. After a lot of thought imo train is the better choice anyway and theres speculation he got picked, he can play every hero Zza can play plus a few extra important ones (D.va). ****

Frags

There was a rumor going around discord earlier today that Jake made the team.
Also I think id_ and train are the only players who can fill the flex role (play D.Va) for team Canada. Even Rogue, the number 1 triple dps team, has a D.Va player.

#42
Bantha
2
Frags
+

Train is probably a pretty good pickup for Canada. His D.Va was not bad during the Quad Tank days and he can flex to Hanzo/Tracer/Sombra as well, although I'm not sure how much that will be required since they'll have Surefour.

What I'm expecting today :

xQc - Train - Zza Mangachu - Surefour - Roolf - Verbo

vs

MESR - CoolMatt69 - Jake - xRetzi - Shake - Adam

Apparently Zza isn't making it which is kinda sad but oh well. Also would've loved watching DaHanG but he's at E3 I think, so I guess it's not happening, and Harbleu for CoolMatt but highly unlikely too.

#63
KuroiRyuu9625

If we have Train I'm not sure Mangachu fits in here. S4's Parah is monster and he's a straight up better Soldier. With Train more than likely on Flex duty I think Agilities might be a better option than Mangachu for this squad.

The only other swap I'd arguably make, though not with 100% certainty, is swapping Verbo for Joemeister.:

xQc - Train - Agilities - Surefour - Roolf - Joemeister

  • Less than 5 hours away, HYPERBOLIC HYPE!.

So committee members weren't supposed to be able to select themselves for the team right? How is Mangachu both a committee member and player for team Canada?

they changed it, you can be a committee member and play, it was like a day or two after how the selection process worked that blizz changed it.
Maybe train didn't want to make the time commitment needed to play in the WC? gotta ask the dude but depends if you want to run "weird(er)" comps with mangachu or more standard with Train.
