Winner of this (1st place of group G vs 2nd place of group H) faces Korea i belive, if theyre placing them the same way theyve done with the other teams

edit: confirmed, winner of this faces South Korea https://worldcup.playoverwatch.com/en-gb/#group-stage

I don't know, if Taiwan aka Flash Wolves faces has to face Korea, I think they're one of the teams that can take down Korea (even though Korea definitely has to be the favourite still)

Personally, I feel like France or FRogue is the only one. China only faced tier 3 teams, and Thailand was suffering from fatigue after facing Argentina. Taiwan hasn't looked that strong and if USA can take them to the limit, then there's not a doubt in my mind Taiwan is not a contender to beat SK (unless Taiwan is tactically throwing to avoid SK in quarterfinals or USA is really really strong and that would make them a contender). France looked sloppy because of lack of practice and play. With Contenders Season 1 on the corner, once Rogue gets some much needed practice against EnVyUS (Immortals is probably not gonna beat Rogue similar to old Selfless) and perhaps Immortals. If they can beat those two, then I feel like they'll at least take a map. France probably won't beat SK, but if France gets less cocky, prepares and coaches and scrims as much as they can, I think France can take them to the limit or beat them. South Korea will be very, very hard, but they're not invincible.

I find that unlikely, btw FW has been scrimming against the top tier KR team, and by their own admittance they were getting absolutely crushed.

France might have a chance but I think KR are still the heavy favorites to win at Blizzcon.

Also just for clarification - Canada's PCs were in the sun and overheating was the reason the computers were acting shitty

This is looking like a probably 4-0 for USA, if it's any consolation for who their next opponent is going to be.

Jake looks so much better when he has the space to dominate. Sinatraa is...well he's just as insane as ever but this makes me wonder if LGE needs to start looking at possibly rebuilding the team if a mixup can make him look this good?

A lot of tough calls there they didn't really make any major mistakes, that was one the best Nepal rounds. Jake swap to Sombra saved it so hard for US.

You have to win that last fight though. 4v6 on 99% has to be a win.

I generally prefer ZP and Hex as a casting duo, but I've been thoroughly enjoying the D.Va ditch stuff from DOA and Monte on Horizon all weekend.

Germany caused the USA more problems than they did the UK, but ultimately they were much stronger. Gives me a lot of hope for the boys against Taiwan though.

Another match where the score doesn't do justice to how close the match was. Good hustle by Germany to make a match out of it.

On another note I also seeing some rumblings about a possible re-draw for the Blizzcon Playoff rounds since as it currently stands USA would possibly faced off against SK. Estimated match-ups may be incorrect so a lot of things could change.

That shutdown of Crnkz' blade at the end there was nuts and we had the perfect view of it.

They used everything on the fight before. And then they were going to kill FCTFCTN but Adam delayed it enough with a sound barrier, then Rawkus came in with transe. I don't remember exactly how USA got the edge as I can't watch it back now but I will tomorrow, cause you're kinda right about not losing the 4v6.

The fact that Jake switched back to Genji after touching point means that he knew they had the advantage too, idk it's tricky..

I feel like they should just seed it off the countries overall average SR they used to seed groups...you know like how every other sports playoffs are based off seeding

If they do re-seed that's how I assume it would go. The brackets could look very different depending on who wins between UK and Taiwan.
