hastr0 confirms Mickie will join EnVyUs live at MLG Vegas in News

I'm glad they managed to play Mickie on something that wasn't Dva and still find some success. This should be a strong team even if the meta shifts further away from tanks. At least I hope so!

but lol I didn't even realize hastr0 had grabbed the mic

EnVyUs vs. FaZe – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Playoffs Final in Matches

Sure it was a question that needed to be answered but I still don't think that was the time or place to ask it. Yeah I guess Mickie wouldn't have been crushed or anything but it still would have been incredibly awkward. Watching him stream it seems like he's built a nice dynamic between the rest of the team. If Taimou had had to say "well we still don't know, we're figuring things out" it would have been uncomfortable for both Goldenboy to follow up, and for Mickie who was I think was literally holding the trophy at the time. Not to mention what the reaction from the audience might have been; I don't know about in-person but I'm pretty sure Mickie won the hearts of everyone in chat about 3 seconds into his first appearance on camera.

There are a billion more appropriate questions to ask the winners of a big tournament. "How are you feeling?" "What were your thoughts going into that last game?" "Was that really as much of a roll as it looked?" Just anything besides "are you still planning to cut Mickie?"

EnVyUs vs. FaZe – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Playoffs Final in Matches

I mean yes, but what if they didn't plan on keeping him? Or if they weren't sure yet? Putting Taimou on the spot like that right after that win pretty much forces him to say yes, and then you're baiting everyone crazy hard if they can't keep him for whatever reason.

I really hope it's true that Goldenboy confirmed it beforehand, but that didn't seem to be implied at all, both in the way the question was asked and in how Taimou responded. Plus I still think there were better questions to be asked, but that's the only one he went with.

EnVyUs vs. FaZe – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Playoffs Final in Matches

Is it just me or was it incredibly disrespectful for Goldenboy to ask whether Envy was gonna keep Mickie on? I mean they just won MLG Vegas right after winning in Korea, probably cementing themselves as the best team in the world, and that's the question you ask? Not only that, but you're asking just one of the players on the team, with Mickie standing right there. I mean there's no doubt in my mind that the rest of Envy love Mickie right now, but that's just a question for another time and place.

TL vs. NRG – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Group Stage B-LR1 in Matches

Every time NRG plays a different player is the problem. Yesterday it was Clockwork missing hooks, today it's Numlocked getting way too forward. And then there's times when a tank will die and NRG engages anyway. No way NRG winds up taking this if they keep playing it as loose as they have been.

clock is a boss on soldier and mcree tho, i wanna see more of that

also numlocked needs to get off winston, lawd please. i feel like that last push worked cuz liquid messed up, rein still woulda been better

MLG Vegas Viewer's Guide in News

Man I don't know what was up with the dude who was playing host yesterday. I think his name was Goldenboy? So many awkward pauses, jokes missing the mark, and just poor analysis.

Not only is the girl hosting today super hot, she's way more knowledgeable than the dude from yesterday and is directing the analysts with few hiccups. Here's hoping she stays on the desk for the rest of the day

NRG vs. C9 – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Group Stage B-USF in Matches

I doubt Clockwork needs replacing, but they really need him to be practicing on everything that isn't Tracer. Let's be honest, he sucked on Roadhog, and both times he tried to play Tracer the rest of the team didn't have the versatility to play around him even when he was doing work. Whether that's because they're not capable of playing the heroes needed or because Clock is playing too unpredictably for his own team, I don't know, but the way this meta is shaping up he really needs to fill a deeper flex role.

South Korea Passes Bill to Punish Hack-makers in General Discussion

If we're going for the sports parallel, it's also illegal to use performance enhancing drugs. As long as the law specifically applies only to getting an unfair advantage in online games I don't see the problem.

South Korea Passes Bill to Punish Hack-makers in General Discussion

I guess I'm assuming about Korean law, but I know when we use Steam in the states you don't actually buy games, you just buy licences allowing you to play those games. Assuming it's the same elsewhere, using other game services--not hugely surprising they were able to outlaw making modifications to them.

otherwise i dont see why this is a bad thing

NRG vs. C9 – MLG Vegas Invitational MLG Vegas Group Stage B-USF in Matches

I'd really love to hear from their mouths the reasoning behind the comps they've been running. These are all really smart, mechanically inclined guys. It's impossible for me to believe they keep running Genji/Tracer because they're simply not skilled enough at the other heroes to do anything differently.

coL vs. LG – NGE Winter Premiere NGEWP OP Day 3 Final in Matches

Yeah the Zarya was looking strong. Hard to count out that graviton.

I dunno about Pharah though, it seemed to me like she was a direct response to Col's composition. Very little hitscan, no Harb hooks; just very very little that could shut a Pharah down. I think if most teams continue to run Hog, 76, and Ana, Pharah is still unlikely to make more appearances in the near future.

IEM Gyeonggi reverts to fixed maps in News

Enforced map diversity

I mean, even if you only get 3 maps picked regularly, that's more than games like LoL have. And OW gets more than 3 picked on the reg. No idea why map diversity is desirable.

Ensuring all game modes are showcased

Really, just see above. If a game mode isn't enjoyable for comp players, it needs to be fixed. If they need data from pros on how to fix it, they should ask for it, or host some kind of experimental cup, or something besides ruining people's expectations for preexisting cups.

Just because they can

It's on ads right now, but the stream is pretty much crystal clear for me. Must be some quality control hidden somewhere in the chinese.

Oh my god there's an option to rotate the stream to any 90 degree angle. Get on your game Twitch, this is downright revolutionary.

Although we see different maps for fixtures in the same round, there is a method to the madness where each game in a series is tied to a specific game mode.

A method to accomplish... what, exactly?

Op-Ed: Maps and Loathing in Las Vegas in News

Aaand they've revised the maps. Seriously, what is going on over there? The gamers ask for a draft, and instead they just rehash the exact same issue? Except now it's worse since the teams have less prep time. I guess they tried to adhere a little more closely to their guesses as to what the players want as opposed to which maps are prettiest, but at that point I don't see why they wouldn't just give the players input. I seriously doubt people watching competitive play are going to decide whether to buy the game based on how shiny the map is. It's not even like the other maps look that bad. Except for King's Row maybe? But they're now going to play KR 5 times, and even on the original plan they were gonna go for 4, so... what the fuck.

I really hope they make a statement about their thought process here. On some level I can understand trying out different tournament formats to see how things shake out, but the maps they picked... it's like they threw darts at a board.
