I hope they're not the New York team. Could see them combining into the London team though.
I have a feeling it's New York, but I just personally don't think they are a good fit, and won't even be consistently good.
You beat Scrubs to it, what's he gonna do now?
We'll find out rosters soon enough.
Good for him. Wish I had the ability or supportive parents to spend more time on overwatch. Currently still can't climb out of gold because it's the most toxic horrible place on earth.
That was some real ptsd
RUNAWAY FIGHTING LETS GOOOO
It's just hard to play him in the current setting of the meta, and unless you're a god, it's hard to get great value out of his blades.
Sounds like a restaurant
All maps are close, but RunAway finally runs away with a victory with a 4-2 win.
I've decided to make a part 2 to my much beloved thread that got an overwhelming amount of responses. I read each and every single one of them. So, time for some more questions.
As per usual, I'll answer my own questions as well.
What's your favorite type of music? - Electronic/Rap
What's your favorite color?- Dark, moody blue
What was your first video game?- Minecraft
Where are you from? - New York
What do you consider your biggest accomplishment? - Got 1st place in a national piano competition for ages 14-21
What's your most PogChamp overwatch moment? - Got 6 direct hits as a pharah in a row
If you could hug one pro player, who would it be? - Seb Numlocked fucking Barton
Make your dream over.gg team- Myself, Poi98, Darkcvc, Involv3r, Winter, Scrubasaurus, w/ KuroiRyuu as coach
If you want to answer, what's your first name?- Tristan
Scrubasaurus, what will he come up with next?
Love the name.
I gotta be honest pine is insanely overrated.
REMISKA calm down and stop arguing about Seagull again
Underrated team: Immortals (as of right now, they didn't used to be)
Overrated team: C9 Kongdoo (never found them to be absolutely incredible)
Underrated player: Architect (seriously, he's phenomenal)
Overrated player: Babybay (I like him, and happy he's on San Fran, but people hype him up too much)
Underrated over.gg member: Pixelfish
Overrated over.gg member: KuroiRyuu
Great to have a sense of the T2/T3 scene even if I don't watch it. Thanks poi!
Are Munchkin and Xepher confirmed? I expected them to get smother tank (a Reinhardt), like Kaiser. Or are the announcements not done yet?
Ayyy good job my dude
At least he'll cast the remaining events outside OWL. Unfortunate that Blizzard didn't contact him whatsoever, though. I imagine the casters for OWL will be: Monte/DoA, ZP/Bren, and Uber/MrX
He's most definitely a part of them. Seoul needs a talented projectile player like him.
I hate him and love him. Think he has the worst personality of any player, but also has some of the most incredible mechanical ability. I'm on the edge for him coming back. I'd like to see him in contenders, I guess?
I agree partially. Dreamkazper, Fischer, and Gamsu are all stellar pickups, but I think Kyb and Mistakes are both mistakes (no pun intended.) Yes, Mistakes is a great tracer, but I feel his lack of flexibility will only detriment the team. He could of course be just a bench warmer who would pop in for tracer based comps, but I think Boston would be more successful if they found a suitable hitscan DPS who could also play a strong tracer. Good tracers are key, but not every team needs a sinatraa or an Effect to win.
Meanwhile, Kyb's offtank play has never impressed. On a note of Snow and NotE (haHAa), they're both relatively unproven and largely inexperienced (at least in the tier 1 tournament scene) tournament players, and they're truly only on the rumored roster because of their relation with HuK.
If the team can find another strong DPS player, a couple reliable offtanks, and a stronger support core, forming a team around Dreamkazper and Gamsu specifically could be extremely viable.
I'd love to see Architect come in to be a straight projectile DPS player that not only can mesh with Dreamkazper's DPS flexibility, but also refuel the already existing chemistry between him and his old tank teammate. Even adding in Twilight and making a mini-conbox within Boston would be a smart move.
Potential is the key word. We've seen a lot of teams with potential that don't actually explore that potential, and end up falling under the disappointing category. Which, as of right now, will most likely add Boston to the list, unless the rumor roster undergoes some major shakeups (which it needs to if they want to have any chance of keeping at a high level of competition)
None of them will be in OWL. Hope they find a contenders team
Poi98 worlds greatest detective
Ouch. Who's gonna play Zarya now, Envy? Unless they picked up another player we don't know about
Used to be one of the best tracers in the game. Thought he fell of towards the end slightly, however.
Rev up my spook engine Kreygasm
If that's truly what the Boston lineup is... harsha was right. There's some good players, but tbh, only Fischer, Dream, Gamsu, and MAYBE Mistakes are OWL material.
I see what AKM meant by some teams having completely unproven DPS players. It's fairly obvious that if this is the roster, it's because a majority of them we're all buddy-buddy with HuK.
I was talking to KuroiRyuu on BattleNet today and he said he had chores to do. He didn't wanna do them so he asked me to. I said no, and then I said, "Remiska should do them."
So now Remiska you have to do his chores haHAA
It won't fail. It may not break massive success in its very first seasons, but it'll grow. Like Remiska said, the media is going to give OWL a massive amount of intention. If Blizzard plays it right with rewards, skins, etc, i could see OW breaking top 3 by season 3 or 4. Just give it time man. Don't forget that we're only halfway into our second year.
Hard to tell. Obviously optic would sign more than just six players, so even if they signed that core of FNRGFE, it'd be unlikely that all those players would be starting. Mendo, Muma, and Coolmatt would be guaranteed starters, but they might want to add to that core a bit more with other perhaps stronger support players and DPS. All theoretical though.
Adam shouldn't go to immortals. He needs to be front and center, on the starting lineup shotcalling a main roster. I expect to see him maybe in the LA Gladiators, maybe Houston, or even Philly/Boston.
All four of these guys better be on an OWL team.
