Running Moira with full dive? Even with the close engagement distances on Blizzard World, that's risky

He was suspended for pre-season and first 30 matches, so it depends if they count the stage 2 playoff matches as part of his suspension period or not

Yeah they should really fire Kyky, he's making these terrible decisions......oh wait

posted 1 week ago

Not until the start of stage 4 IIRC

AN ABSOLUTE RIP-SNORTER

I like ZP, but I think if I had a dollar for every time he's said 'in the moment' in this match I'd be getting a tidy sum

Fuel 100% could win this, but their roster and support staff are in such disorder that I doubt they will

posted 1 week ago

tbh I kinda feel he wouldn't care if the team kicked him for it. He's clearly not happy there and I don't blame him

Wow hastro really screwed Kyky over, publicly made a statement saying he has full control, so that he could scapegoat him a few weeks later. Good luck finding a top coach like that. All that's left of the team I used to support is Mickie and HarryHook (that play regularly)

And he's also screwed Rascal over, that guy 100% deserves an OWL spot and he can't join another roster until next season. Dick move.

One thing I would say is, whilst it is always a good idea to watch the pros to understand the best way to play the game, and micros of hero play, it doesn't often help in terms of ranking up with the current way the ranked system works. Very rarely in ranked games do you get 6 people all willing to work together and communicate to get the best team synergy possible unfortunately

Pleaseeeee, Blizzard, fix the sound balance on the mics so that we hear the casters and not screaming fangirls

Casting csgo is so different from casting overwatch, and he really struggles to keep up with the fast-paced nature of the game. And it just seems so strange that he got a spot casting OWL as an unproven guy, compared to people like JKap, ZP, Jamerson, etc. that had been casting the game for ages

posted 1 week ago

It's such a shame these casters make it almost impossible to watch. Hex is decent but Semmler makes so many mistakes and just says nonsense every 30 seconds

Effect is trying so hard to carry aKm right now

This will be the 5th time these teams have met in the last couple of months, with eV being the only team so far to beat FU, however I still see this going the way of FU. Hoping for another 5 game match though

Indeed. That is why I explicitly said sexual matters. But at the end of the day, she is a 14 yr old kid. Maybe some people were incredibly mature at 14, but I know I wasn't. I was an idiot. It's the responsibility of the adult in the situation to not be drawn in and go along with it, and take a stand about it. It really isn't that hard to say you're 14, this isn't appropriate, and stop doing it.

Because he's the adult. If it was a 21 yr old woman doing the same thing with a 14 yr old boy, then it would be the woman's fault.

Why do so many people seem to thing this is a joking matter? And seeing people blaming the girl is frankly disgusting. She's a minor, that's why the law is there. It's literally there because it's deemed that people under a certain age aren't in a position to make informed decisions about sexual matters. Who cares if she was encouraging him, it's his responsible as an adult to say no, this is wrong, you're too young.

Effect silently carries the whole team

Fuel were finally getting somewhere then they trade away a key part of that roster. I don't see their fortunes changing any time soon, regardless of what Seagull plays

posted 3 weeks ago

There goes my last support for Dallas unfortunately. Lost faith in the org a while ago but Custa was keeping me there. I don't see myself supporting Valiant any time soon, so I guess I'll have to stick to Fusion from now on

posted 3 weeks ago

I 100% expected this to be another link to Rick Astley, congrats on it not being.

posted 3 weeks ago

Kyky will have very little say in it, despite what he might wish. Trading Seagull is a business decision that hastr0 will be in charge of.

What a flag battle this is.

Also do we know who's playing in place of Kruise now?

posted 4 weeks ago

The difference lies at the core of Korean vs Western culture. From my understanding, success is valued highly in Korea, no matter in what field, and video gaming is a socially acceptable way of achieving success. Western culture sees video games as recreation primarily, and there is a level of stigma attached to playing games competitively. Unless this changes significantly, there will always be issues like this arising.

The Korean scene is also far from perfect, orgs have dropped rosters and players have expressed dissatisfaction in the past. Also who knows what issues we never hear about as they remain internal, whereas Western players tend to be more outspoken.

I'm 99% sure Mickie is the only reason this team haven't murdered each other yet

posted 4 weeks ago

It's amazing the process they have to go through to give a World Cup to South Korea

posted 4 weeks ago

How does that trade make sense for either team?? I guess maybe if they also swap Effect for Soon, you then have half of Rogue back together, but it doesn't feel that either side needs those swaps

posted 1 month ago

How are Dallas able to show up like this against the Korean teams, but look terrible against everybody else

3 fights were lost/ended early because Fusion didn't play the objective there

So is this the first time an NRG branded Overwatch roster has actually won a match in nearly a year?

Can we still say FuelsBadMan, or will that get us banned by Blizzard for illegal memes?

I'm expecting this game to be better than half the OWL matches

I'm pretty sure I saw a job post for social media manager in relation to Team EnVyUs, which I would imagine would also cover the Dallas Fuel, so maybe it's a lack of staffing that means things aren't communicated as efficiently as they could be

posted 1 month ago

I've a feeling that name is already copyrighted to something else, which was way they couldn't take it in the first place

posted 1 month ago

I'm sure they would have loved to keep xQc, but as Custa said, it's not good for team morale and practice never knowing if your main tank was going to be suspended or not, and I don't think xQc's mindset is yet in the right place for OWL. He's a fantastic player, and I could see him coming back to a team in a season or 2 after he's focused on his stream for a while

Oh man, I'd forgotten about the Sideshow beach hut

You're missing the point. Pepe is not offensive. A small group of people have taken the image and are using that for offensive reasons. This action from Blizzard validates those people and gives them more power, while doing nothing to address the actual issue.

Would you say EU contenders was a good mid-tier competition?

posted 1 month ago

I actually don't think it's entirely Dallas being bad, but other teams being much improved. Throughout stage 1, other teams were building a core roster and practicing their synergy and team play, while Dallas had their main tank suspended. He then comes back and they start practicing, then gets suspended and now kicked. They've essentially not had a stable main tank.

Add to that something weird going on with running aKm overrascal, which kyky clearly doesn't want to talk about, suggesting it's his superiors decision so he can't speak against it, it's forcing Dallas into weird comps they can't make work

posted 1 month ago

Yeah, their comps haven't been too effective lately

I get that the crowd are getting hyped and that's cool, but I feel they need to adjust the mic balance so we can actually hear the casters and the game over the noise of the crowd.

posted 1 month ago

I'm pretty sure it is a cultural thing. Why bother sugar coating something, and having people read into it anyway. If you say what you mean, then it can't be interpreted in a different way really.

posted 1 month ago

They just wanted to play more Overwatch really

Let the Overwatch Speed Run Championships begin

They're an NA org, but they acquired the EU contenders spot that 123 held
