Winter Wonderland 2017
So the Fusion looked good against the Outlaws, but the Spitfire made them look silly. I don't think the Shock are as good as either of those teams (yet). Philly was lacking on coordination last week, but that should be clearing up with another week of practice. The Shock did manage to beat the Dragons, but...how much does that mean?
I just want to see IDDQD play! PHL 3-1 SFS.
Someone has to root for the Shock
The result of this match will probably depend on how well Philly can play the "kill Babybay" game. Given how this team is built on how much they like to aggressively dive I think they should be able to handle him.
Like most ppl already mentioned this is probably a 3-1 for me, unless the Shock can show us something new.
They might bring out the "old rooster"?
Have to admit who most convinced me in SFS during the preseason was IDDQD, considering how long he had been missing from actual pro matches.
The only question about IDDQD that's I'd have is if he'd be able to keep Carpe in check while Babybay and SDB compete on who can frag out the most.
If he fails to do so we could see Carpe farming Babybay while SDB farms everyone else.
Shock has a roster to get between 9-10 position with a great DPS duo, not yet surprised much, as winning the Dragons is easy for most. Fusion surprised in the first game against the Outlaws, even though it did not have such a good strategy. In the second game they looked tired against the Spitfire. They have a great DPS duo with Carpe and ShaDowBurn, both former FaZe Clan, as well as having Poko and Fragi along with the aggressive Zenyatta of the Boombox and also counting on the three Mercyes Dayfly, Joemeister and neptuNo. They have roster for 7-8 position.
Shock 1-3 Fusion
I honestly hope Dayfly could perform better after one more week of scrims, as I'm a total noob but didn't see him as an improvement over Neptuno.
Yes I know there are many reasons for that, first of all the Spitfire being a way stronger team than the Shocks, second him having joined the team "last minute" and so with less scrimming time, but unless he "gelled" in better I'd keep the Spanish dude honestly for now.
I see very little in SFS and I wonder does sinatraa too?
$150.000 this season tastes nice but I fully expect him out, SFS hasn't got the experimental in it.
Well even if, what team (judging current rosters) would give him better chance to win?
I mean better teams already have tracer players that are as good as him if not better, Dallas has EFFECT, VALLA has SOON, Philly has Carpe, imo they all are at the same level if not better than Sinatra.
Huston, yes they could use a proper Tracer, but are they more promising than SFS?
Florida, a choking Logix is for sure weaker than Sinatra (if he doesn't choke thou), but are they a better prospect than SFS?
Koreans won't pick him up, what's left is possible new teams...
Shadowburn's indecisiveness will surely be a liability both in this game and in the future.
I still believe Monte and Doa haven't watched enough of Shadowburn, and think of his plays in the nanobalde meta.
As all good genjis what makes the difference are not the ulties, but the kills they get outside of their ulties, check this last Anubis map for reference.
That's where Genji, as a hero, shines; when the team got everyone low, Genji dash resets are lethal. I'm talking about the indecisiveness (not the ult usage) that, almost all the time, gets punished. SDB should better trust his back-line a little bit more. So that those 'could have been(s)' could be avoided.
Wow that Nomy profile video ... right in the feels man ...
Best of luck to SFS and especially Nomy moving forward.
Shadowburn has mastered the Fan-slash- and dash combo
Always had, I can't count the matches he completed over the last 2 years with his ultie ready, but never used.
And he survives a lot.
I'd hope so. He's one of the best genjis in the world. By design, a genji always looks flashy when they're doing well, but to look as stylish as he does against some of the top players in the world is just imprressive
Is Carpe hacking? Iraq, where Oasis is located, is approximately 115 feet above sea level. How is Carpe able to play on Oasis? Why is a fish able to play above water for this amount of time? Seems fishy to me
Ouch they'd rather have babybay on tracer with danteh's genji then playing iddqd.
Why did they even keep IDDQD? They have four hitscans, and he's apparently 4th, even though one of them can't even play yet. What's going to happen when sinatraa comes in?
