probably iffy with him, it would have to be a majority NA and he'd be a bench player so if hes ok with that he can regroup and contenders then get back to OWL, if that is his wish.
there are a bunch of other player, worst than them, that are in OWL......since s1 too.
OW is a hard game. There will be many players coming/going. Really is game of attrition like the nfl/nba.
how do you "retire" as a AGM? She's just quitting OWL right? Is she never going to work in esport management again? Just seems weird to me, but I applaud her for thinking of her health and doing what she needs to do, lifes too short, good on her.
gg China, rip Sweden, yet tviq is still in owl.......
Wonder how they will free up janus to make more plays as a MT, it'll be interesting to see who they wrap around him to enable him.
Sayas english isn't that bad compared to other krns on roster when he first came to the team. its not communication in game but more so out of game, in expressing his thoughts, plus its not like Mayhem has the best talent in coaches/players/staff. You build around saya, focus saya to grind few heroes he needs. FL isn't hard to figure out.
Semm and hex has been a pleasant surprise. Doa and monte since apex s1 has gotten worse imo, especially doa. Uber needs to find his partner in crime, maybe they bring back reformed zp.
sparkle isnt 18 yet right? few months will do him some good, then hit the grind.
as written, hes been with the team for awhile now, but OWL contracts take awhile to get "approved" by the OWL office, hence why the delay.
with the expansion of teams next year, they have a good chance of getting picked up individually or as a team. Also depends on which foreign teams expand into, so you may see some EU teams or NA transitoning to a EU branded team.
Does NRG still have the HASTE deal as well?
team will expand to 6 teams next season, maybe 8 if interest is really high, if Hastro was like 'fuck it', he could sell his spot (lets say he sells for 30 mil) easily. The interest/money is there, of course, hypothetically speaking.
flower is better in every hero except for hanzo.
should be valiant just based off the support players.
legally, wouldnt the players need representation as well?
Can't have a salary cap without some sort of players union to negotiate. I guess it all depends on how OWL is set up legally. I remember reading an article on kotaku or somewhere that had a esport lawyer talk about player representation if a salary cap would come about and how that would take years to get.
wonder why Team UK couldn't find time to scrim? Were tryouts all so time consuming they couldn't find time to scrim?
nice troll, but needs more spice 2/5.
plus i'd value a high level Genji over a top tier Pharah. Plus nevix is mechanically skilled enough to pick up any off meta pick character if the team wants a mangachu (aka junkrat/torb etc).
depends on how interchangeable swapping players will be at the lan and how often, otherwise, chips is enough. if anything they both need to improve their respective mercy play (i want to kms for writing that).
Wish IMT wasn't so jekyll/hyde because I think they would give NV trouble (they'd still lose but make it close), otherwise, its pure utter domination, as expected really.
sounds like some billionaires sports groups just didn't want Rogue as a whole and they couldn't raise enough money to buy in. Sucks but sometimes that's the way the cookie crumbles. Pretty sure Unkoe/Knoxx/Soon won't have trouble landing a spot, don't think Winz nor AKM will make it (just due to AKMs tweets but hes worthy of a spot though). Nico, meh.
if you lose a couple games, take a break, play qp, or something else, then get back to comp, play the next day. no pt in getting up/down like this, will just burn you out faster on the game.
that will be interesting to watch unfold.
Hope i can continue to watch Geguri compete besides comp KR ladder.
right? undermines the process of having a committee and picking players, qualifications with those players, why waste your time going through that? And might as well put a stream team together, then swap them out last minute so other nations don't know who you're bringing/type of strats a team can be strong at etc.
what are the rules in terms of replacing players for OWC?
the long con.
and NV isnt really trying like they do in Korea, thats the sad thing about NA OW right now.
I wonder who will pick up shadder, such a promising talent. Guy has nothing but improved tremendously when he arrived in NA. Definitely can replace some players in OWL, and he should be 18 by the time that happens.
so looks like another season win for LH this season with a weakest season so far. meh.
yea, they changed up how they shotcall, so that will take time to adjust. Also, pre Korean players and post korean players, you can see they are still trying to find their "color/style of play" that will fit all players best, while building that chemistry even more. I see a tug/pull in how players "see" the match and that makes for bad support ults/bad dps ults. They need to keep working on it and maybe members need to take a backseat while letting others shine for the betterment of the team.
thats so hard to understand for all of these commenters in here. Some teams exist solely to make money, not win. Ex: every sport known to man.
They're phoenixes. They will rise again. Its a cycle of ups/downs with them if you look at their history (previous rogue roster to current one). Not surprised. The shakedown of teams, the ones that are consistently good (enough), bad, up/down is now being established before OWL. Interesting to see the development of team personalities for this nascent esport.
this whole season is nothing but a crowning procession for Envyous, and if anything thinks anything differently, well,.....can't help you there.
it would be a great experiment to see if he rewrites his player pool. Goes main tank or support or something like that. because the dude can aim, if other players can, i dont see why not in his case.
NV will win it, and picking 2-3 will be more difficult.
focusing on streaming OW? I hope its other games because streaming OW is getting deader and deader. He should join the PUBG ranks and stream way more if he wants to blow up. Even seagulls #s dropped dramatically.
definite lull until OWL, so we will continue to see roster shuffles and some teams put in minimal effort, so upsets will happen. Just means we need OWL asap.
if anyone knows anything about French History, this uh, bump in the road by Rogue, totally expected. Not suprised. GGs to Envision, showing what hunger/focus/desire looks like, unlike France.
wasn't there an article here that said they were building an arena down around staples center?
Someone needs to sign Aktm, dudes skills are legit, top tier.
True, but his winston have vastly improved. With Rein making a comeback, is this a short sighted move by Misfits? Wonder if there is more behind the scenes (I suspect so, he is a "big" personality and I can imagine there are minor squirmishes). I always thought he was a good Rein, OTP, in his playstyle, while other Reins adopted a multitude of different playstyles with the changing of the meta/players strengths-weaknesses before dive took over.
1) will always get charge (sure, but not highly SUSTAINED charge). Its not hard for peeps to stop shootin zaryas bubbles. You saw it when Reinhardt wouldnt fire strike her anymore to give her charge (with the reduction of how much charge from 40 to 20). Then teams learned how to stop shooting at her because teams found out, a low charge zarya is useless. Its called discipline. Buffs to other char led to her being not in the meta. Now we see her being used because of buffs/nerfs to other characters like Rein, her own buff to grav etc.
2) i agree.
