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

posted about 2 years ago

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

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

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 about 2 years 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 about 2 years 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.

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.

They just wanted to play more Overwatch really

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

posted about 2 years ago

Frankly, I find it shocking

posted about 2 years ago

Don't think their new signings are expected to be available until stage 3

posted about 2 years ago

Tbh I don't even know how much is KyKy's fault. Like, trying to organise a scrim schedule while multiple players were facing disciplinary actions can't be easy, and then you don't want to commit players to scrims who might get suspended. Custa said something along the lines of everyone always felt uncertain in scrims with xQc in case he was going to get banned again.

posted about 2 years ago

Without their new signings I can't see Dragons taking a map here really. Carpe and ShaDowBurn/EQO are too strong a dps duo, I think they'll just outfrag if nothing else

posted about 2 years ago

This should be a PogChamp game. Both teams are looking pretty strong this stage. I'm giving Seoul the edge here 3-1, but if it does go to 5 maps then I think NYXL will take the decider.

posted about 2 years ago

Guess it was a Bye Week for them after all

posted about 2 years ago

Just go all in with 6 dps with Seagull and harryhook

posted about 2 years ago

Nah, this week they'll have Chips on main tank and Seagull on Lucio, and it'll all work out fine

posted about 2 years ago

But maybe with less Uncleswagg this time

posted about 2 years ago

Only in this meta. He just plays a passive style that isn't suited to the current aggressive meta. His Rein is still very good but not needed at the moment

posted about 2 years ago

From your language and statement I'm going to assume you're an xQc follower

posted about 2 years ago

Okay, agreed he has more public exposure than the majority of jobs. But I don't think it's unreasonable of the league to expect him to behave like a decent human being at all times. If the standards are so high, then the other 120 or so players in the league would also be in trouble all the time.

Yes we all have bad days and say stupid things we don't mean. But it's consistent, and despite warnings he stays the same.

At the end of the day, he might just not be cut out for the publicity and exposure of OWL, which it seems like he's realising himself.

zza has a nutty pharah, I would expect him to play that role with mikeya on the tracer.

That aside take an upfrag for the pun

posted about 2 years ago

I think the sad thing about xQc is I don't know if he comprehends that his behaviour is wrong, and feels like he's always being picked on. If it was any other job you wouldn't get away with some of the things he says, so I don't know why he expects to in OWL

posted about 2 years ago

Sado was boosting people who were much lower rank though. As far as I know Silkthread hasn't done that

posted about 2 years ago

Less so EFFECT at the moment, he's not looking as strong on Tracer as he once was

posted about 2 years ago

Fusion have a chance here, but it's their second big game in 2 days so hopefully that doesn't affect their performance too much. I think NYXL 3- 1

posted about 2 years ago

Looking forward to seeing Big Chris back in action

Well there's the response. As expected a generic 'Not the person I want to be' kinda thing

posted about 2 years ago

Effect and aKm will both be on the bench, chipshajen will start as flex dps alongside Mickie

If you can't connect on EU, you can login to America region and play there

Valiant should win this, but it could be a good game. Gladiators always seem to play better in the first game of the week

Edit: well Rip me

posted about 2 years ago

If Fuel don't win this I feel there's not much of a chance for them in this Season of OWL. They need to start picking up some wins against the other bottom half teams

No Diya for Dragons, and Seoul looking good this Stage. 4-0 Dynasty

It seems like it. Maybe it was a comms issue or something that wasn't fitting the team play style.

Surprised but not disappointed

The new patch won't hit OWL until Stage 3 I would imagine

With subs Stylosa, Muselk and Ryan from Overwatch Central

Dallas have looked better, and also played Seoul close before, but I feel this map pool favours the Dynasty more, and with the Mercy meta over, jehong is freed up to play more ana and zen.
