#13 NRG revamping, building around Seagull and dummy in News

#11 They spoke about it in the interview with Dummy and again in the interview with Dummy and Numlocked. Basically Numlocked is the shot caller for the team fights and Enigmas was doing the rest of the shot calling. Taking care of the big picture with ult management/tracking.

#3 NGEWP GP Phase 1: compLexity vs. Team Liquid 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.

That was a little scary with the first and second map, but yay! Immortals won :D

#2 NGEWP GP Phase 1: Team Liquid vs. Immortals 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

#8 NGEWP GP Phase 1: compLexity vs. Kungarna in Matches

Why does this always happen to CoL? I seriously think Sombra has something to do with it since they are the only team that runs her.
edit: Although people say it has happened even without Sombra. I think CoL is just cursed. Seems the most logical and scientific reason.

#10 MLG Vegas Playoffs Final: EnVyUs vs. FaZe Clan in Matches

I don't blame Ster for drawing doodles in the middle of the match since this, so far, has been one-sided.

#18 MLG Vegas Group A DM: NRG vs. Cloud9 in Matches
Morriswhen 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_rockWhy 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.

#22 MLG Vegas Group B LM: Team Liquid vs. NRG in Matches

I loved the graviton on the roof with pharah doing barrage. It didn't worked out that well, but it definitely caught them off guard.

This is the first win on stream for NRG with the new roster. :D It's finally good to see them happy for once.

#3 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.

#50 MLG Vegas Group B OM: NRG vs. Cloud9 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.

AloraI 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.

#3 NGEWP OP Day 4 Ro4: Immortals vs. Luminosity Gaming in Matches

I still can't believe how much Immortals have improve over the past months. Maybe this meta favors them, but it's really impressive. Go Nomy! :D

#7 OW World Cup SF: South Korea vs. Sweden in Matches
PendaAdmirableI'm going to make a BOLD prediction that SK won't lose a single map in the whole tournamentI'm excited to see what they do to shut down sdb

It seems they did nothing to shut him down. They simply played their usual characters and invented the game: "Who gets to kill shadowburn first?" Brutal.

#65 NRG sign numlocked and clockwork for Pookz and Gods in News

This post is just...hmmm beautiful. It's truly a masterpiece.

ChodezHopefully NRG can dig out of the tier 2 NA trench now. The Esper > Dummy change was honestly pointless and stupid. They perform exactly the same as they had before. I honestly think this change is good though.

Ok, ok, unpopular opinion. I get it, I get it. I don't know how people compare players when Esper played during the pharah-mercy meta and Dummy played starting the Zen+Discord meta, but it's cool and heey! you tried a nice save on that last sentence. Nice, nice. I like it!!

ChodezEdit* Aww man it looks like I hurt one of your feelings, NRG fangays.

Ohh boy, it seems a button was pushed....oopps

ChodezI'm just being honest. NRG is tier 2 at best. I'd put them just above Splyce, Selfless, Tempo Storm and Faze right now.

Ok, now we entered the: "you don't like my opinion? fuck you then, you suck, they suck, I don't even care, you guys suck." zone.

ChodezThey honestly shouldn't have even been invited to the Korean tournament.

More words and more "truths" being told. I like it, I like it. Full rage mode at this point. Nice, nice.

ChodezP.S. Seagull is not the best genji in the world, infact he's not even top 3. Cry more fangays

I love the use of the P.S.!!! I wonder if you stop for a moment to see if there was anything else to: "end this roast" Finally a farewell using the word "fangays" again. Like saying: "yeaaaa, I got them!" I loved it!

Beautiful.

Anyways. I'm sad to see Gods and Pookz go. Wasn't expecting this, especially since they are in the middle of a tournament. Hope everything turns good for all.
Edit: Also I thought they were doing ok even after losing against Lunatic Hai. I mean, both Rogue and NRG had been constantly in scrims with Korean Teams which maybe it's not invaluable experience, but it's a nice advantage at this point.
