Vancouver is a different thing altogether though.

I see what my intention was, yes. I don't think I'm responsible for your interpretation. You haven't explained why you had the impression you did so I don't know why you'd think I'd guess.

Looks like London just got CHENGDU'd!

The wording I used says exactly what I want it to say. The comment itself obviously doesn't take aim at you specifically, but if you feel otherwise then that's on you.

A bit of introspection will go a long way here but a lack of knowledge and/or understanding doesn't inherently make you sexist so I'm not sure what you're on about.

posted 5 days ago

Honestly there's too much to unpack and I don't think I'd be able to effectively communicate my point to you since you think I'm calling you sexist from what I previously wrote.

You also seem entirely uninterested in broadening your own perspective so there's isn't much more to add to this. Looking at the comment and examples you just gave reinforces that impression.

I assume we can at least partially chalk it up to cultural differences, but then again, learning and personal growth are always an option.

He made it real fucking easy for them.

Technically true depends on your perspective and what you mean. Some women being "whores", as in them being sex workers, is true. However, here it's used to demean them based on their sexual activity. Men and women being themselves is uh...normal, but what does that have to do with trying to use sexual one's habits as an insult?

Do you know what else is technically true? Black men get incarceration at a much higher rate than white men. Facts. Does it tell the entire story? No. Nuance and context matter but you're not applying that to this situation and how we treat women in general.

I know learning and growing is hard, but damn people, it ain't that hard.

It's easy to say X group is Y and call it "having a different opinion". Maybe we don't want to be shitting on people for literally being. Maybe we don't want to perpetuate shit's that's been going on for centuries. Your argument that worst shit being said is irrelevant. It's just not that hard to not be a dick. It's not that hard to try and understand other people's perspectives.

The other side of this argument is that people need to be given the space to fuck up if we want learning, understanding and growth to happen. From the few details given, Harry didn't seem to be interested in any of that if his views of some women was that they were "whores" and "meat".

Welcome to being a balanced human being.

I mean, retirements happen? Not sure what's surprising about them at this point in the game's life cycle.

Welp. They got Chengdu'd again.

New match meta: beat up on the bottom teams in the league until you master your strats and take down the big boiz.

The players don't. The org? Sure. But the players? I dunno, I'm just not about it. This is basically 2018 SHD v2.

I'm assuming VISA issues may have played a part in it.

posted 2 months ago

huh..it actually did lol.

posted 3 months ago

I mostly agree, but I think that's facilitated by Fleta, he enables his DPS partner to play what they're best at since he himself can play almost everything.

posted 3 months ago

SHD just absolutely ass blasted SEO. Fleta has a bigger grin that The Joker right now. I STILL think Fleta/Profit would have been the best DPS duo in the league, by far, and that it may have put SEO on top, but I guess we'll never know. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing if SHD can keep this up, cause they're lights out right now.

The problem here is that him "only" being 21 doesn't matter if he knowingly participated in the solicitation of a minor.

As for public opinion, well, Boston didn't have much of a choice, sexual harassment and the situation being what it was didn't really leave them with any other viable option.

Damn. I gotta admit, I was bummed out when I saw that my ProFleta stonk predictions weren't gonna workout, but this is some good shit.

It's possible that things may not have been moving fast enough for her. I don't know how these internal investigations usually go though.

Sounds like you want to rant more than you want an actual discussion.

I'm afraid I have to agree. Though I have to wonder, is it more on the players, or is the coaching/strats more to blame? Because their comp choice seemed utterly abysmal to me today.

FDGod and Hanbin are kinda nutty. Paris looking much better than I ever expected.

I imagine that Stratus had the hero pool that best fit that meta. It may not say much about Ado. Again, we'll see how he does.

posted 5 months ago

He looked decent in spite of being on a pretty bad team in S1. in S2 he never got to actually play his role, so as far as I'm concerned he's at least decent, but we'll see how he does.

I don't think the pickup is as bad as you make it sound.

posted 5 months ago

They made some good pickups, imo, but I have to wonder how long integration will take since none of the KR players have been on mixed teams before.

Really looking forward to it.

Just my gut feeling, can't really say much because I don't know how travel, meta/balance changes and her pools will affect all these teams. Teams are somewhat interchangeable within their tiers.

I'm also ULTRA BIASED when it comes to Toronto and cannot properly evaluate them, because they're my home team, so take that as you will.

S Tier

  1. SF Shock
  2. NYXL

A Tier

  1. Atlanta Reign
  2. Philadelphia Fusion
  3. Vancouver Titans

B Tier

  1. Shanghai Dragons
  2. Seoul Dynasty
  3. Hangzhou Spark
  4. Guangzhou Charge
  5. LA Gladiators

C Tier

  1. Toronto Defiant
  2. Chengdu Hunters
  3. London Spitfire
  4. Florida Mayhem
  5. Houston Outlaws
  6. Washington Justice

Pepega

  1. Dallas Fuel
  2. Paris Eternal
  3. LA Valiant
  4. Boston Uprising

I think I might be a bit more inclined to try a pick-em league instead. With all the changes in S3 I don't think I'll be remotely keeping up with the league.

The heroes picked for bans/possible adjustments will be based on playtime, so he can one-trick all he wants as long as Hammond isn't popular.

Look at the screenshots in the thread:
[Slur] An explanation and apology

He's likely being released for the comments. Looks like he was a pretty toxic kid up until some time prior to the past year or two People around him seemed to be saying that was a good dude as of late but I don't know how recent the change in attitude/behavior was.

Damn, they really ran it back didn't they.

Not gonna lie, I liked Fearless even though the teams around him wasn't able to give him much support. I think he starts and Stand1 is the backup MT. Looking forward to see him complete his redemption arc.

posted 6 months ago

The only thing that would have been a significant upgrade would have been them stealing Coldest away from the Spark. Still, looking forward to seeing what this team can do this year and if the lack of teams being able to prepare for them will continue into Season 3.

I'm no VISA expert, but afaik you need the correct one to "work" in NA, probably even more so in the US now.

Expected that a bit sooner, but good for him for officially transitioning.

You can't fake passion. Good on him for moving on if the game just isn't fun to cast.

It'll die whenever the investor decide it's no longer viable, so unless the gigabrains here are financial pundits and/or have access to some insider information it's a moot question. I know that this is a relatively hardline (and probably unpopular) opinion but mulling over whether OW is dead/dying or not...in its 3rd year...just isn't remotely productive imo.

If you like it then support it in your own way, heck you could even try sending suggestions Blizz's way (listening not included) and hope it does well..otherwise you don't really have to participate.

The is "insert esport of choice here dying?" question/meme is basically beating on an extinct horse species at this point. Unless the goal is to gather solutions to the problems OWL is facing, for the sake hoping Blizz might someday adopt one or several them before they nuke OWL like they did SC/SC2.

For what it's worth I think this year is make or break in terms of showing that the league is/isn't viable with the model they chose to go with. But since I'm a sarcastic twat I'll actually "answer" your question:

Yes, OWL is dying, because all things must end eventually.
