Winner of this match plays NYXL in the stage 2 playoff final.
Everybody is losing their shit over xQC drama, and I'm just here enjoying that insanely good OWC match.
I'm happy about Cloneman. I've been hoping he'd get onto a team for a while now.
Better update the times. This match is going to start in just a few minutes.
What happened to linkzr?
Edit: nevermind. answered on air.
I missed seeing this one.
It's possible he was just trying to keep things on the down-low, but comments he made on stream yesterday sure made it sound like he doesn't know if he'll be in OWL yet.
I honestly thought Jake was a bit full of shit with the 4-0 prediction, but it's certainly looking more believable now!
Two great games so far today!
I had never heard him previously and I initially resented him for taking a spot that I thought should have gone to ZP (whether or not that's actually true, that was the feeling I had), but I've actually been pleasantly surprised. I think he's doing a solid job. I think he his casting will improve as his sense of the game matures, but I already like his style and think he has a good rapport with Hex.
Will Dallas? monkaS
I'm sure that's largely true. Nevertheless, I can't help but feel it's a good sign that there are more people watching the re-broadcast from last night than watched a lot of last year's Contenders matches.
I've always enjoyed your contributions here Pixelfish, especially the really weird and random posts, which I can only assume are drunken rants. Hope we see more of those! ;P
Is this associated in any way with the (excellent) High Noon podcast?
How does that even happen?
I did not even know this was a thing. I do not endorse it and refuse to participate.

Wow, I haven't seen rob420 in forever! Exciting!
This is going to be great!
I'm not certain, but I don't think so. There was no chat, the stream quality options were different, and people said the colors were a little different (which is why I switched to watching in the first place).
I for one watch almost every match but watched it on the Blizzcon site, not on Twitch. Obviously we don't know how many people did that, but I imagine the numbers were in the thousands.
Not gonna lie - the fact that SK is plural in this headline while the other countries are singular in their headlines has triggered me a little. BabyRage
Yes, green vs white has been much easier to differentiate than blue vs white.
There needs to be less white in the names, health bars and effects, but I like most of the other changes.
Zappis would be awesome on almost any team. Slight exaggeration, of course, but that guy is awesome. I honestly thought he was going to be on the Mayhem. I'm bummed that he doesn't appear to be in OWL.
If EnVy and OpTic don't intentionally play up the Dallas vs Houston rivalry, I will be seriously surprised.
Edit: Houston Outlaws confirmed!
Rumor has it that the Houston (OpTic owned) OWL team will be revealed on OpTic's twitch stream, which should be starting in a few minutes.
How do we know he didn't? Maybe over.gg has new owners! monkaS
Seems like Contenders S2 is going to have a lot of potential. I hope that Blizzard increases the prize pool to entice orgs to pick up some of the newly formed teams.
I'm a big fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (don't judge me!), and each season of the show Buffy and her friends must defeat a villain that they euphemistically refer to as the "Big Bad". Hence the name.
EnVY has moved to the hug meta because Seagull refuses to be filmed giving a handshake.
Say what you will about EnVY, they know how to entertain a crowd!
If I can get one where he's wearing those aviator glasses, count me in too!
I think some of it has to do with the fact that this match started A LONG time before the advertised start time.
Hopefully the amount of attention his comments have received in the past few days will prompt teams who might have some space left to give him a second look. I really hope that's the case, anyway.
I hope IMT keeps GrimReality as a McCree specialist. I love watching him play that character.
This is probably a dumb idea for many reasons, but maybe the remaining players from C9/EUnited and Rogue can form a Contenders S2 super group?
Also on EST. I don't play comp that much (haven't even finished placements), but part of that is simply that I don't like to solo queue that much. Just sent you a request. Happy to group up if you see me (BigBad) in game.
Edit: happy to group up with anybody here. BigBad#11732
Did something happen to the stream tracker? I'm only seeing like three streams at the moment.
Create a new one!
If IMT just manage to stay on the point/cart this time, I will consider it a moral victory.
Folks, it isn't complicated. OWL exists to make money. Seagull is a talented OW player, and he is a cash cow. Ergo, Seagull will be in the OWL.
Leaving aside the question of whether or not he's talented enough (I think he is, but my opinion doesn't matter), his enormous popularity will drive viewership, ticket sales, merchandising, and create immediate loyalty toward whatever team he is on. It would be insane not to have him in the OWL.
