I have always been curious to where that fine money goes to. Of course it's Blizzard, but what do they do with it? Is it an estimate on how much they lost in sponsors because of X event that happened? Is it just a universal amount for player misconduct or does it vary from case to case?

FLA vs. BOS – Overwatch League Season 1 Stage 1 W1 in Matches

I'm still confident in Florida Mayhem on this match. I'm sure that they are going to do some sick 360° player swaps and they will crush Boston.
edit: Boo, Mayhem lost. They should have switch players.

FRA vs. KOR – World Cup 2017 BlizzCon Semis in Matches

I think we already knew the reason, or had an idea. Being it was a mix of teams thinking Rogue already had an OWL spot and by the time they knew Rogue wasn't going to be in the league many teams have already finalized their roster/already had enough hitscan DPS + the buyout was somewhat expensive.

I think the real mystery will be if he isn't signed mid season.

I do hope it's a tight match against France, but as KyKy said: This was one of best chances US or any other team had to beat SK. Now that SK advanced to the semis, they are able to study France, Sweden and Canada matches. They are going to be prepare for them tomorrow. So it's going to be hard.

KOR vs. USA – World Cup 2017 BlizzCon Quarter in Matches

The difference between Fl0w3r and Jake really showed in the last two maps. Sad to say that Jake's Pharah didn't make an impact on Oasis.

Kudos to Fl0w3r for carrying in the game, Coolmatt69 for consistently deleting Tobi with D.va, Adam being the better Mercy imo and Rawkus just clutching some QCQ and long distance kills with Zen. (He saved FCTFCTN's Orisa on Nepal from a flanking Saebyolbe and FCTFCTN didn't even noticed. That was really funny.)

edit: Messed up some names.

edit2: This is the clip: https://clips.twitch.tv/TentativeSpoopySandstormTriHard
After Fl0w3rs tire, I think he called to the team that FCTFCTN was low and Saeb came for the kill.

Goldenboy: "Junkertown, the home of bastion." I'm really happy that there's a map where Bastion is considered a good/logic pick.

edit: Also liked what uber said, it was indeed interesting seeing how each team changed up in the middle of the series.

EnVyUs vs. Rogue – Contenders Season One North America Reg Season Week 6 in Matches

I may be wrong, but if Faze wins 4-0 against Envision, FNRGFE wins Renegades 4-0 and Rogue wins against Envyus 3-2, then both Rogue and FNRGFE will got to the playoffs and Envision will be out.

All 3 teams will have 4 wins and 3 losses with Rogue at 17 MW, FNRGFE at 16 MW and Envision at 15 MW.

That is the only scenario I can think of it for both corndog and rogue going to LAN.

TS vs. eUnited – Contenders Season One Europe Reg Season Week 4 in Matches

Harsha: I think this is finally the week where eUnited manages to overcome their losses and finally pull out a victory..

Uffff.....

As stated earlier, Singularity is not an established roster by any means. If eUnited's teamwork is not up to snuff at this point in time, it never will be..

Ohhh...Damm....

this is a must-win game for them and they'll do it against a team that has only existed for two weeks....

OMG....

That's three strikes, three KO's. Brutal...

This is the only thing that I don't like about Overwatch E-sports and it is that teams are super inconsistent. With the exception of Envyus and some of the Korean teams, it seems that every team rises, performs well and then a patch comes, some times passes, they can't adapt to the new meta and it all goes down to hell.

I remember saying this 4 months ago and it still holds true:

The whole western scene in my own opinion, besides two or maybe three teams, looks very inconsistent at the moment. I may be wrong, but I think it was Jason Kaplan that said on a podcast that it seems every month there's a team that rises to the top, makes people talk about them been one of the best, making threads of "holy shit, x team is the best team in NA" and then suddenly disappearing or it simply falling down and replaced by another "upcoming great team".
It happened with Renegades at the NGE qualifiers...then Kungarna getting to the finals and disbanding...then Immortals.....then Hammers(now LG evil)....now Liquid...

After that, I think it went to Selfless, then Arc6 and then Rogue started to go down. I don't even like Envyus, but you can't deny that even though they have played only 3 matches after returning from Apex S3, they have been consistent regardless of which meta the game is currently at.

Also, don't get me wrong. Singularity played super well and congrats, but like Harsha said: this is a team that has only existed for two weeks.

14 days of potential practice WON against a team that has been scrimming, training, going to major tournaments for over 7 whole months. (1 year if you consider that 4 of their members where in the original team)

Like dammmm..and you can't deny it because Gilfrost, Sideshow, Reinforce, CommanderX, Mert, Scrubasaurus and Harsha all predicted eUnited to win.

I don't think they made a mistake because you would be dumb to bet against a team that has had 365+ days of experience against a team with only 14 days.

Mini reportedly cut from Tempo Storm as the team searches for a new tank in News

Uuuuuuuu, that is interesting. With all the new upcoming teams forming and the lack of free agents in the scene, I wonder who Tempo is going to get and where will Mini go. I hope they can get a sixth member soon for all the upcoming tournaments.

Pretty excited for the match between Tempo and NRG. I wonder who will have the best trial member.

Edit: Ok...I just read what I wrote and instead of being just a joke, I sounded like a cynical asshole... I will leave it and you can downvote it but, the truth is, it's getting harder and harder to be interested in tournaments with the constant roster changes that happen every week. Makes matches glorified trial scrims.

Not to mention orgs stepping away from OW for the time being. Yes, I know that teams won't disband but, like roflgator said in the cow sub:

Org leaving doesnt mean the team is gone. It sucks that a lot of people are losing their jobs because of this. Lots of free agents around and chance to make awesome mixed rosters on the bright side. But a lot less time to practice when you make 0 income and probably have to find a side job.

Who knows..maybe it's just me.

Seagull leaves NRG starting six as Mendokusaii joins in News

I'm kinda sad not just because Seagull is leaving the active roster, but also because I think he is right on saying that the pro scene is at limbo right now. I must admit that even as a viewer, I have lost interest in tournaments recently. Sometimes I just open the front page of over.gg just to see what the score was instead of watching the whole match.

The whole western scene in my own opinion, besides two or maybe three teams, looks very inconsistent at the moment. I may be wrong, but I think it was Jason Kaplan that said on a podcast that it seems every month there's a team that rises to the top, makes people talk about them been one of the best, making threads of "holy shit, x team is the best team in NA" and then suddenly disappearing or it simply falling down and replaced by another "upcoming great team".
It happened with Renegades at the NGE qualifiers...then Kungarna getting to the finals and disbanding...then Immortals.....then Hammers(now LG evil)....now Liquid...

I know patches are a big part of this and I'm really not a big fan of having the mentality of: "UUUUUUUU new patch! I wonder what team will take the top spot now and which team will hit rock bottom now!"
Then we have subs replacing others in a team because of visa issues, ping issues, etc. There's also teams that like to play with tryouts, which I totally see their reasoning on giving them a chance to see how they perform at a tournament, but at the same time it makes tournament matches just glorified scrims for them.
The constant roster changes in a team: "Ohh no, we lost the grand finals by 1%..better change the whole team now!! :D" (exaggerating ofc) I think it was Monte that mentioned this is something that will change with the OWL because teams cannot continue changing their roster every time they start having problems.

All this together, I totally see why Seagull would prefer to wait for the OWL and focus on streaming. He already has a bigger audience than Moonmoon and dam, I can't even imagine the amount of money Moonmoon makes with 13k-15k subs plus all the donations.

I won't deny I'm sad that we won't be able to watch Seagull until the OWL, but I wish him the best and will await for his return. That said, I will still be rooting for Dummy, Numlocked, IDDQD, Harblue, Ajax and Mendo now.

coL vs. TL – NGE Winter Premiere Group Stage Phase 1 in Matches

Interesting that there's no sombra coming from CoL this time.
Could it be that Jkw was essential to make it work? Or maybe Liquid has already learned how to deal with her in scrims? Or maybe CoL just wants to avoid any type of curses?

Hmmm, who knows? but CoL looked weaker in that first map.
edit: or it could also be a possibility that Liquid played phenomenally.

TL vs. IMT – NGE Winter Premiere Group Stage Phase 1 in Matches

Immortals is looking good, but Liquid is also fighting back.

Completely unrelated, but I remember when Immortals were Sodipop and got stomped by NRG in the OW open qualifiers.
Even before the NRG roster/meta changes, NRG has always struggled against Liquid and they always have very close fights.

Seeing this match just shows how much Immortals has improved. (Not that it hasn't been mentioned before since they also beat C9 in the qualifiers for this tournament.)

As a fan of both NRG and Immortals, I hope we can get a rematch in the future.

Also..go Nomy!

EDIT: Yay! they won! :D

when has this winston ever worked? they build a dive comp and then play it like they have a rein, i just dont get it

The worst part is that he is suppose to be the shot caller for the team fights. How can you shot call if you can't even stay alive.
He finally switched to Reinhardt for round 2 Nepal but I feel he did nothing. By the time he built his first ult, the point was already at 75%.

Angry_rock
Why the fuck is numlocked tanking? Milo was their tank and he seemed to do better, when you're already maincalling why not just go lucio so you can focus on it better when you already have a tank that does the same role.
Clockwork if he continues playing like this

Milo personally asked to step down from tanking, that's why Numlocked is doing the tank job. The shot calling is done by Numlocked for team fights and Enigma for ult management/tracking.

NRG dummy at MLG Vegas: "we're learning the meta just in time" in News

That was a great interview and, indeed, gave a lot of insight on what is really happening with the team. Some things that caught my attention:

*I think it was sad when they were talking about the experience and differences on doing scrims with korean teams saying: "their team work is really good, really good at coordinating plays, they have a lot of set plays, different hero synergies like in coordination with different skills that NA teams and EU teams don't even do."

All of this sounded great and I was really hoping to see how all the experience that NRG/Rogue/Envyus/Reunited gained by playing in all of those tournaments translated when they went back to NA/EU tournaments. I guess some of it, if not all was wasted with this new meta.

*It was also interesting hearing that both Enigma and Numlocked are doing the shot calling. He mentioned that on day 1, no one was listening to numlocked unconditionally and after they started working on that they realized there were some things he wasn't calling that Enigma did. So numlocked is doing calling for the team fights and enigma keeps track of the big picture with ult tracking on the enemy team. Really interesting.

*People were also confused on to why Milo was asked to play Lucio and I was really curious to know if he was asked or he volunteered. It seems it was the latter and he actually dislikes playing Reinhardt. xD

*He also mentioned that since they went back to NA they practiced pretty much wrong comps that even though had a lot of success with top teams on scrims they were useless once everyone started running quad tank comp on day 2 of the the winter premier after everyone saw the success Kingdom had with it.

NRG vs. C9 – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Group Stage B-USF in Matches

I mean, the reason they brought clockwork was so he could play Tracer, so enigma could play Zarya and seagull could play dps on Koth. That only lasted for one round. Then seagull went back to zarya, enigma on tracer and clockwork on roadhog.
Don't get me wrong, Seagull did very good Zarya and from his streams he often says he likes playing her, but I don't think that was their initial plan. Both clockwork and enigma played tracer and both Seagull and enigma played zarya on that map. I think it was Flame that pointed out that all those role swaps could have caused problems.

Alora
don't understand why NRG are so conservative with ults, it's like they hold onto it for ten years

The idea was using Hanzo/Pharah ults with Graviton but in both occasions the graviton took forever to charge and got eaten by D.va. Still, I agree and it definitely didn't payed off since they lost a fight when they had 6 ults.
