Be on the lookout for Josiah, seen him on some streams, the guys a beast
Agilities popping off so hard
This exactly. I think Agilities, similar to Taimou, is the best Genji in the world when he’s on his game, however he is so off and on that it’s a huge gamble to play him
Uuuuuh I’m going to get so much shit for this
I don’t think xQc does much wrong. He plays a character, he and plenty of people around him have said that his humor isn’t serious. He did a Tracer 1v1 against Dafran, and obviously he lost. But he called him garbage at the game and such. xQc has played against Dafran he knows how good he is he’s just doing it as a joke. And because people watch him I think it just reinforces his behavior. I know xQc doesn’t mean what he says most of the time. Throwing to games on Koth is bad but shouldn’t be the end of the world. He should definitely be more careful with what he says, but I guarantee you that he doesn’t really mean most of what he says
(This is really poorly written I know)
How did shock drop a map to these guys?
No. Just a draft for the inaugural season, I didn’t clarify, sorry
OWL has had a problem since day 1. And this is incredibly apparent as the games go on. There is a very large talent gap between most teams. The fact that Orgs that bought a spot kept their teams put teams instantly at an advantage. For example- Seoul gained the rights to the Lunatic Hai roster, which was a complete, korean speaking roster that was established as the best in the world. They then used this core to seek other talents, like Fleta. Now compare this with a team like Houston. A team that started from scratch. While they are good, they are not near the top teams. This is the main problem with OWL. 6 of the teams are just their orgs team but with some additions. The top 4 teams in the league are these teams, and if Dallas actually remembers that they were once good then it will be 5. And because of this. I propose an OWL draft.
Now their would be a reward for buying a spot early. The earlier you buy, the better draft spot. So let’s say Seoul gets the first pick and gets Ryujehong. Then Miami goes and picks Taimou. So on and so forth until all teams have 6 players. Then free agency begins
Tell me what you think about this
Valiant seemed off. I don’t even think they played that bad. Their Junkertwon attack was... weird. I don’t understand why they used silkthread rather than Agilities. I mean, agilities has the better genji right? His Dragonblades can totally turn the fight. Fate also got picked way too much. I fell asleep before the third map, but I’m going to say Valiant just had a bad day. Hopefully they can change it up before the game against Spitfire
I know it’s not as good as pine’s, but it may be enough to win a few duels, and that could turn the tide
At this point Dallas’s gameplan is have Effect pop off. If he doesn’t do that, and looses Widow duels, like we’ve seen today and against Valiant, they are screwed. Why Taimou wasn’t in the game is beyond me, why Custa is even playing is baffling, I haven’t seen him make a single good play so far. They aren’t running xQc on Junkertown, which is so good for Orisa, and xQc has proven himself to be a fantastic Orisa player. I have no idea what I Dallas is doing, KyKy needs to stop dicking around and actually try and win a game. Losing to Seoul is fine, even getting swept by LAV isn’t the end of the world. But losing to Outlaws is humiliating. I have no idea what Dallas is even doing anymore. They need to fix their shit and actually perform like a team and not Effect and the Streamers
Ok Grimreality cannot be dropped from Valiant. They still have a roster spot so maybe they can pick up Akm and continue with 5 DPS?
Shadowburn has mastered the Fan-slash- and dash combo
I erased his work for you :)
Why either Silk or Agilities? It wouldn't hurt them to keep both. They would have 11 players still. Which is enough for another pickup if the meta swings around. Even then, There isnt really a Hero LAV can't play
My apologies EU people. I am not as in touch with your continent. Please forgive me
This will change in the next week so much. With LAV facing both Spitfire and Excelsior this will be an amazing week
Could we see Grimreality this game? His McCree is stellar
Whats funny? Boston is far and away the best team in the league
Obviously, Fleta has burst onto the scene and might just be the best player in the world. He is just unstoppable on Widow. The thing that baffles me is that he played on Flash Lux, one of the worst teams in Korea. Was he always a standout? If so, is there a different culture in Korea where you get signed to a team and stay on that team and try to get them to T1, rather then move to a better team for a better opportunity for success?
Does anyone have some background to give me on Fleta?
Jake can play Tracer. I don't know why no one is mentioning this. We've seen it in the preseason
Yeah, it does go to the teams though, I don't think you're supposed to actually buy all of them. I do agree that it's a little steep. I'd be fine with $2 a skin
I think Seoul's post sums it up best
yeah. Ashley is typically a girls name so I went with that. Totally my bad
I will say that the tiers really showed this week. But in terms of gameplay, hype, and upsets this week was great. Truly a great week, I hope this momentum continues
This is going to be hype
VAL 3-2 NYXL
LA Valiant- AKM: Grimreality is just not on the same level of hitscan that Akm is. It would complete the Rouge/IMT fusion, and the addition would not cause any major chemistry issues. It's just a good move
Shock- FCTFCTN, Roolf: Nomy is just not good enough to justify his position on the team, FCTFCTN is just better. And right now they do not have a good mercy, so Roolf should work very well
Gladiators- Shadder2k: Hydration has just not impressed me on the Genji. I think that may be their weakest part of the team- Projectile DPS. Shadder2k could fix this
Mayhem- Knoxx, Gods: Knoxx is a fantastic tank that I think could be very good for Mayhem to pick up, and Gods is another established DPS that could improve their lineup greatly
Uprising- Adam: While they already have 4 supports, I think they could release one to pick up an established support player
Outlaws- Mangachu: A dominant pharah player should help the outlaws out
Dragons- Everything, anything they can do to make the team better

I mean, women's leagues don't fair well in pro sports either. Just look at the WNBA. Very few people pay attention to it. Even in Minnesota, where the Lynx are the best team in the league you see nobody talking about them. Only in Tennis and golf Both men's and women's events are popular
Noah said that?
Well, good argument then
How was it in most eyes? I don't think any reasonable person would say that 50k viewers is a success. Just based on World Cup Numbers if OWL did 50k it would be a laughingstock.
"A "success", in most eyes, before opening day, was to reach about 50k viewers"
She only played for France right? I've looked her up before and I see nothing in regards to her pro career
I think she was voted onto France because Grill
Ok, so I've seen this discussion on twitter that it is appalling that there are not any females in OWL. And that this is clearly sexist (their words not mine)
I can only name two pro female overwatch players
Is there any other pro female players out there?
Now hold on. Look at LA Valiant. They 3-0’d Fuel yesterday. Say what you want about that match, they only have 3 Koreans. And the rest are french, Canadian, British and american. I don’t think that Koreans are that dominant, I mean, London isn’t doing that well, and I also believe the mentality is different. I mean, these guys will put in work 12 hours a day in countless scrims. I think for the players sanity the Americans don’t do that. If they did put in that much work, I think we would see better teams, but we would also see some guys go mad.
Now the real test is to see how many viewers they can pull in in like, March. If it can maintain 200k, or more, than this will be a total success
Can we just all appreciate Fate’s keyboard
Enigma, you’re the best
If Shanghai caps a point I’ll be impressed
