Watched a match yesterday. I refuse to give these embarrassing games more viewership when the entire T2 scene screams for visibility
All this bash against Korean teams makes me nauseous. I think the best players should complete regardless of nationality, if that's Korean so be it.
Let's just say the coach made a bold decision after the S1 Shangai Dragons fiasco, this team has a tough legacy to overcome.
This team wants to capture my european heart.
And it succeeded ❤️
To be perfectly honest, I think the comment was more directed at blizzard itself being sometimes pedantic with political correctness than at the black people community.
At least, that's how it sounded to me. I would not have made such statement in a public setting regardless, because it's easy to pass as racist even when unintended.
First Generation... Second Wind...
Might as well name Spark academy team Third Impact
I am happy that he is still going to be around, but I also wanted to see him play in OWL at least for one season :(
SMS did very well in angry cup, let's see how they fare in contenders.
Hopefully this means we will see Muma on Symmetra
In my opinion it is boring to watch, and looks like a game which is 10 years old. Not really attracted by it, but I have to say that I don't like Battle Royale games in general so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
If Dallas loses, it means Effect is not angry enough to carry
I don't think anyone said that, but I think it's very important: find your role.
Play support, tank and DPS. Ultimately you may want to specialize on a role, but in the beginning you really want to try most heroes to find out if their playstyle suit you. I will also say to you that certain heroes are very powerful at lower ranks but their effectiveness decrease as the rank goes up. Pharah, Reaper, Mei are some of these heroes, for example. Some heroes instead are bad at lower ranks because they require more coordination/game sense/mechanical skills, and they unlock their potential much later. Such heroes include McCree, Ana, Tracer.
In general you can play any hero at any rank: if you are good enough you'll eventually increase your SR. Although, it may be much harder if you insist, for example, in using Ana in silver. At the same time, you can "cheat" your way to higher SR by playing easier/stronger heroes, however don't forget that this will hinder your flexibility because you won't be able to play other heroes as effectively.
In conclusion, find what you like and what you're comfortable with, but be mindful of hero efficiency for each rank. Don't get discouraged if you like difficult heroes and you struggle gaining SR. And please don't become a Moira OTP.
In general, the whole DreamKazper situation is not something I'd discuss in public. It was a display of how disgusting humanity can be from ALL sides. Let's just get over with it and start talking about Overwatch again.
You guys don't seem to realize that many people are simply not used to political correctness, I see a lot of difference concerning this matter between EU and USA in general, with EU citizens being way more relaxed in general: maybe because we're used to teasing each other?
Anyway, this does not mean that racist behavior should go unpunished, simply that players come from different places, and may simply not have the background to understand that a simple gesture that you used to do when you were a kid is actually part of a racist subculture. The right course of action in my opinion is not to harshly punish the players, but to educate them to behave properly: in this regard a fine like that is way beyond extreme.
Right now the best feature are the dope ingame skins, not going to lie. If you have Twitch Prime and can get it for 20$ it might be tentatively worth it, if you are willing to bet that Blizzard will improve the feature later. 30$ is too much at the moment.
FeelsBadMan my brother beats me FeelsBadMan my sister beats me FeelsBadMan my father beats me FeelsBadMan at least I can feel safe with team Italy FeelsGladMan because they can't beat anyone FeelsGladMan
It is with bitter feelings that I meme my own country. I really do hope they can do better this time :>
Well there slowly is going the chance to see the west improve, now everyone's looking for Koreans. :)
I don't understand the deal with Koreans. It's because you think that good players from Korea "steal" the spotlight from western players? Before OWL the Korean scene was one of the most competitive scenes, maybe the most competitve, so it is only natural that many top tier players come from there.
What honestly leaves me more bafled is how they are also stacking their academy/B teams with Koreans, this is imo only bad, for both the Western scene AND the Korean one.
I am confident in the opposite of what you state, actually: having teams of mixed nationality made the global scene richer, and allowed players from the west, which for the most part had played confined in their own continent, to confront the best players and teams from around the world.
Fissure/Void tank duo is scary. I am looking forward to see what the boys in purple can do in stage 3!
Stats are calculated automatically through a bot
Is there an API to programmatically access these stats?
Reason for the question: I really liked CaptainPlanet's meta report graphs and I kind of wanted to implement a meta graph generator fetching data from OWL matches.
Eagle Gaming won because it had more french players
Baguette meta is real
I wish we could just see team battles instead of this overwatch police despotism.
I always thought of Taimou as a sorta of western Pine: picked once in a while to show everyone that Finland has another good aimer.
It would be really sad if he truly is released from OWL.
I think it's still very early to call Brigitte meta-changing or useless. Let the hype settle and we'll see if she's worth the pick.
It's a shame that such a talented player retired :/ :candle:
P.s: I am astonished nobody tried to make the obvious pun
Care to elaborate about corruption? I would like to hear the story
I want an OWL watch party too FeelsBadMan
Because it is very risky in ranked to play around a player you don't know, if they're not as good as they claim to be, it's an automatic loss.
I don't like fighting against Mei to be completely honest, but she is probably the lesser evil compared to most other defensive heroes.
I think this could go either way. I'm giving a slight edge to Philly, but both teams are so good that it's hard to tell beforehand.
Eh, I guess it's fine as I personally despise Mercy, but to be perfectly honest, I would have liked a buff on other main supports rather than a nerf on Mercy. Unless something is done to improve the viability of Moira and Ana, if Mercy falls out of meta, I would expect Lùcio/Zen all over again.
As an european which probably will never be able to watch OWL matches live, you have my most sincere thanks
Valkyrie is still broken, Moira's resource meter is a problem, and Ana has an underpowered ultimate for the current game style. I hope things will change, but for now, mercy is the most powerful main healer :/
Close enough, it's jQuery
Apologies accepted, SADO. Now it's up to you to show that your message is not made of shallow words.
Hope they do well :)
I'm so frustrated at these matches' schedule. I can't watch live most of them. I don't think it was fair of Blizzard to place all the matches in the west coast: east coast timezone is more accessible to us European folks, and still acceptable for people from the west coast. I recognize that the timezone favors Korea more, though, which I assume has a wider audience than Europe.
But hey, at least I can watch the VODs FeelsBadMan
Yes please, Junkrat is still stupid and needs to be addressed ASAP. The whole Mercy revamp fiasco drew the attention away, but he is still as dumb as he was after the patch he got unnecessarily buffed.
I cannot stress this enough. The only way not to go insane in ranked is to understand that it's not the "real" thing, but more like 6 individuals trying to best other 6 individuals. Improvised teams do not work well in an heavily strategic real time game like Overwatch.
The tournament is held in Lucca, location of the most popular italian comic convention during the con itself. I was there live last year. Definitely a fun experience to watch, but I got an overdose of watching overwatch due to all the owwc matches so I will probably skip on this :P
Frogue played well in all matches. I really wanted them to win the world cup, after all they're their last tournament together FeelsBadMan
AKm was insane in these playoff matches. Teams would be dumb not to pick him up mid-season. I hope Valiants get him so he can play with his former teammates Unkoe/Soon and retain their synergy.
Nico's D.Va, while not perfect, was actually more effective than I remembered, maybe the new aggressive D.Va better suits his play style.
Even though I agree this will definitely go in favor of Fuel, I don't think the Outlaws are that far behind in terms of individual talent. They have a roster of incredibly good players. What they lack is synergy and team play, because, as you said, they are a new team.
Ideally, mercy needs to be nerfed so much that she becomes unusable for a couple of seasons, and then get buffed again. For too long she has been the dominant support in ranked, people need to learn how to play with other supports.
Yeah I think 1.75 seconds may be a little too much. At least it is more difficult to pull it off, it may require team cooperation to work, as your tanks would need to protect you while you res.
However Valkyrie is still so broken that the fact that res is less powerful doesn't hinder that much the usability of the hero.
The tanks of this team are superb. SPREE is an excellent addition to an already strong tank duo.
SF shock planning to dominate quick play with their 6 DPS roster
I respectfully disagree. I understand that xQc is eccentric to say the least, but even the koreans think he is a formidable tank player. I think this was mentioned before too.
If you are basing your judgment on his performance in ranked, please don't: scrims are a totally different environment.
