6/26/18 - Symmetra/Horizon rework
I wish Valiant will win, but have this weird feeling...
Gladiators and Fissure managed to wake London up, they've always been potentially the scariest team albeit sloppy, but now...
CMON LONDON, CLOSE IT OUT AND MAKE FINAL WITH PHILLY! SwiftRage
That oasis map shows why myself and many find Valiant boring, London uses this original comp with reaper soldier brigitte and no mercy, and then Valiant uses Pharmercy and GOATS comp, wow such a fun team
What is going on..? Is London the team that actually sand bagged all league?
Apparently, but that shows why a 6 months long season followed by a break of almost 1 month before the playoffs, is not the best idea, see London and apparently NYXL on the other end of the spectrum.
Valiants DPS just have no flexibility to switch on the fly. Sure Soon is a great tracer and a decent widow but if neither of those heroes are working then he’s ineffective. Agilities didn’t show up today either. His hanzo is really lacking and you could tell they were both vastly being outplayed by the dps of the Spitfire. Profit and Birdring can just play everything at a high level and that led to LA’s demise
Agilities is mainly a Genji player, and when he played it the Valiant did very well. His Brigette and hanzo are not up to par. Soon’s Widow wasn’t amazing, and he wasn’t willing to play anything else. Their DPS are not good in this meta
flexibility on the individual level and also coordination and flexibility on the team level with both compositions and strategies has always been something that impressed me with korean teams in general
Feel especially good for the Kongdoo players - Birdring & Bdosin, a little like LW they always seemed to fall at the final hurdle but then LH were essentially untouchable at times back in APEX.
Not sure if I buy that London were sandbagging, I think they've found themselves in a meta where their flexibility shines.
