I think DF should win comfortably but VAL could take a map possibly
Winter Wonderland 2017
Valiant is a very talented team, so once they spend more time practicing with each other (and solve communication issues) they have a very good chance of beating Fuel.
Even though they lost yesterday, the Fuel looked really good against another clearly top-tier team. The Valiant also looked good, but it was against what will probably be a bottom half team, so it's harder to judge just how good their potential is. They do have promise, but I'm going to go DAL 3-1 VAL.
I have Fuel winning 3-2. Valiant are looking so good, and Fuel is looking out of form.
However I still think Fuel is the better team
But I would be thrilled to be proven wrong
imt/rogue vs envyus , 3-1 DF since they both lost to envyus before.
EnvyUs did lost to Rogue in the past too.
And more than once, thous this isn't Rogue and EnvyUs anymore, while the Fuel are a straight upgrade of EnvyUs, the Valiant aren't an upgrade of Rogue, they are somehting different, better? Hard to say, but I see this as a close match.
Agree with others here, while not favourites Valiant have a good shot of taking this imo
This could be close, but Dallas has the potential for insanely hard carry performances from Effect (and Taimou on a good day). I think they'll edge it 3-1, but could go either way
DAL at the end should win this one 3-2 or even 3-1 but the matches will be more close than we think
The return of SoOn will make this match interesting. Also I hope they put Agilities on the pine again and let silkthread play alongside SoOn because they looked like they much more dangerous DPS duo.
Also, where has Grim been? Is there a reason we haven't seen him play yet?
VAL has a great team, with a roster of Immortals and former Rogue roster, plus numlocked and Skilthread. But the DAL has a better team, with all the very good roles of Team EnVyUs players, along with xQc. I think it gives VAL 1-3 DAL
It’s felt like SoOn has been on a mission to reaffirm why he’s one of the best since some hype was lost while Rogue was struggling. I’ve been impressed with his play in the matches we have seen so far. I think he’ll be the X factor of this matchup
sensing im getting a little pissed, Overtime respawns for Hybrid/payload is terribly designed, and a huge advantage for the attacks (which is the opposite of what overtime should be) and everyone just seems to ignore that fact, calling "bad defence"
Okay, as much as I want VAL to win, Taimou is just popping the fuck off and it's amazing to watch.
worst map in the entire game
Always a bummer when a map is won or lost from a team getting off the cart / point accidentally rather than a real team fight
Damn Effect is not amused, expect him to pop off like crazy.
gotta love the 1999 Microsoft Fate keyboard
Fuel seemed to have some serious communication issues on that Control map, Seagull (and somewhat the rest of them) looked so lost and confused
the first two maps were really close. fuel on koth look really weak thats really worrying for them if theyre struggling on an entire game mode.
As a Fuel fan this was very upsetting. Hope they can come back in their next match and win.
Fuel seem out of shape. Internally, something isn't working. The constant swapping initially seemed like an advantage but imo it seems to be hurting them. A lot of work ahead of them if they want to get out of the losing swamp.
Poor coaching is all. You have a group of amazing players, with a history of success. This is how you prepare them for the launch of a league?
What inside information do you have to be able to sum it all up to poor coaching
Emails, phone calls, data, life feed, got it all baby girl. Thanks for asking. Now go be a good girl and go play with barbie and ken.
Wouldn't want to play Dallas next week. They aren't going to be screwing around. Sorry houston.
LMAO people really should stop overrating Dallas. This team is all about getting hard carried by Effect and maybe taimou. the rest are just a bunch of streamers. i know people will dislike my comment because this team has a huge fanbase due to the stream popularity sorry but you guys gotta accept reality..
If you're talking about the big steamers xqc and seagull: they are new to this team.
and they joined what is by far the most successful western overwatch-team (envyus). so yeah, your comment is pretty much bs.
(i do also think that they rely too much on a carry-performance by effect tho)
To be completely true I guess that strictly speaking of wins the most successful western team was Rogue, but for sure the more stable and long term one was EnvyUS.
I agree with both of you thou, people tends to overrate them, OWL teams are a different beast than old NA contenders ones, or even older NA/EU tier 1-2 teams and yes I fear they put to much into the carry Effect, have to admit thou that the guy can be scary, just yesterday the team was too hard to carry Vs stronger opponents.
Imo they really should find a player who can flex into support and tank so they can utilize HarryHook as a dps.
It's kinda obvious that you're out of touch with the information, because Fuel has potentially one of the best aimers in Overwatch playing support.
