OWL mid season signings speculation thread
View:

What do you guys think potential mid season OWL pick ups will be?

I'm guessing:
FCTFCTN
Dafran
Talespin
Zombs
Akm

I don't think Talespin because no one wants to pay what he wants for someone who hasn't competed or even actively played the game in almost a year.

I do think Shadder has a decent chance though as teams reevaluate their flex DPS and Genji choices.

Interesting thought. I think Talespin looked good in the hulk cup but at the same time it was mixes and pugs.

As for Shadder that would be pretty sweet if he got the opportunity, he went from streamer to a genuine improvement to Liquid.

If only he was popular that wouldn't matter, but not having a fan base sadly matters.

I'm still sure he's worth taking a punt on if he's been playing high ranked and looking good but considering nobody has heard much from him for the longest time he probably isn't interested in OWL.

He used to pull 1 to 2k viewers when he was streaming consistently. He stopped streaming for months, other people started streaming/got bigger viewerbase. Talespin is a big fan favourite.

Though 1-2k is pretty low m8

1k would be #6 and 2k #3 on Twitch right now wat

AKM is the biggest no brainer of the bunch. It's crazy he isn't already on a team.

Probably Adam. I want to see zombs on a team but if he wasn’t picked up already I don’t see him getting picked up midseason. He would have to carry a team in Contenders S2

Oh yeah, I forgot to add Adam. I was actually so surprised he didn't get in.

Not sure why Dafran is in the conversation, did he say he wanted to come back to competitive Overwatch?

Otherwise - Davin

1
Frags

He's been playing. He played in some OWL pro pugs today

Hes also a great player.

Frags

he never stoped playing game and never said he would

0
Frags

That's not strictly true, he did say he was tired of playing the game and didnt want to be pro anymore, during the whole torb fiasco

0
Frags
+

you see the difference between being pro and playing the game or not?
its pretty big difference

-1
Frags

If you want to get pedantic, he actually said he was going to keep terrorising ranked, which is a big difference from playing overwatch

Frags

As already mentioned a few times, yes he's playing, yes he's getting invited to Pro pugs, he's still an insanely good player.

However, none of those things equate to him wanting to commit to being a Pro Overwatch player and all that it entails. So that's what i'm asking, has there been any indication that he wants to return to the professional side of the game as more than just a hobby?

Semantics aside it would be a pretty huge decision.

Not sure about AKM (maybe he had already program for season 2 with the Utah Jazz so maybe is better for him to wait)
I would love to see Zappis (imho on Florida) and Davin( imho on Houston). Another interesting pick up could be Hafficool ( hitscan projectile and offtank) ( On LA Gladiators maybe?) FCTFCTN ( SF Shock or Philadelphia if Sado is kicked) KnoxX ( imho on Florida or any others team who has a free spot) same for ChrisTfer or Mowzassa. Maybe Grey and Kruise but alll dependes of what teams will need after the first half of the season....

Well, I'd switch FCTFCTN and Knoxxx, i think Knoxxx already tryed out with Philly but they chose SADO over him, and Miami i think need a strong Rein and Orisa player and FCTFCTN imo is better then Knoxxx at those two, but Knoxxx can play 2 roles, Lucio and Winston, so maybe SF since they only have 1 of each? Davin is defiantly a strong choice because he kept up with the level of Logix and Snillo in Contenders.

Davin in for Houston would be an awesome add. I could probably reconsidered them

0
Frags

100% agree

But i don't know if i'd go out in public with a hat that has a flaming bull made of guns on it. Lol

Besides all the players that have been mentioned (especially Adam and FCTFCTN PLEASE), I also think a player to consider for mid season signings is Harbleu. Is Hog and Zarya are both very good, and he wouldn’t be a starter, but definitely a valuable asset.
Also, Dante has always impressed me (especially his zen) plus he has the ability to flex to DPS if needed.

1

Dante is a great pick up

2
Frags

Mangachu,the 2 icelandic flex,fischer,christfer,mowz,greyy to add on to the list

Frags

honorable mention to greyy I hope to see him on a roster by season 2

Frags

why no one ever mentions sayaplayer?
this guy is for sure among the best dps talents in the world right now in my opinion

0
Frags

well he actually refuses offers from a western team in OWL so i dont know he will be gonna taked ( maybe NY??)

0
Frags
+

if he refuses another NA offer i dont actually see him being in OWL S1
i mean hes up there with the best aimers and best hitscan players for me aswell but lets be honest who is he gonna replace in any korean OWL team.
