Shanghai have an interesting week 4.
Winter Wonderland 2017
Take our energy Dragons! I believe, dragons 3:2
NYE 3-1 SHD. Btw, ex Miraculous Youngster players are coming to aid SHD. We might see some greater performances from this team in future games.
Is that confirmed? If so yes brighter future for sure!!
Not confirmed, but highly likely. It's originally posted on the NGA forum in China by xiaoyao, former Chinese National team's coach in the Overwatch World Cup. He said though not confirmed, Zhufanjun (MY's Zen/Mercy) would join SHD soon as he would be adult by this February. Another player and streamer, Jinmu (main Genji)from Team LYB also had reasons to join since one of the bench players, xiaowei would be recalled to LYB from OWL.
Besides these 2 players, Van (SHD's manager) answered fans questions on Weibo(Chinese Twitter) 2 days ago. He said SHD had a plan to enroll/swap 4 players during the transfers window. Currently, former MY's support Zhufanjun is the most likely person. While it won't be surprising that Jinmu from LYB joins the team as main Genji. The other 2 names are still mysteries.
What Is Shanghai lacking? I know the Chinese scene isn't as developed as the KR or EU, but is it player pool? Hero pools? Decision-making? LAN experience?
It's either poor coaching and management or all the good Chinese players are underage. Or both.
I'd say lack of team synergy tbh, china has lot of lans, also heropool shouldn't be problem there as well.
I believe most of the Chinese team in the OWWC is underage, and I think one of them is doing PUBG?
Either way they should get better soon, will they be a top team? Absolutely not, but I think with enough time and talent they should be able to get to the Gladiators level of performance
Flexibility and not when to Over-extend would be what they need. Diya is a god like hitscan but he is not a good tracer nor is he a good projectile player. same can be said to undead. Freefeel gets his ult pretty quick but he overextends alot causing him to get picked off alot.
SHD are at least making it interesting
